Thank you Bravo for this wonderful opportunity. It has been a tremendous platform to reach out to the amputee community. This has expanded to anyone who has ever felt different for any reason -- religion, sex, race, gender, sexuality, or any physical challenge. Embrace it! You all inspire me and teach me everyday. I hope we all continue to learn from each other how to persevere through life's obstacles. I look forward to spreading the theme of unconditional acceptance.

Thank you Carole, Heather, LuAnn, Ramona, and Sonja: working with you ladies has been an honor. Each one of you is beautiful, strong, courageous, and accomplished. We have shared a unique experience together, one which only we can truly understand.

Most importantly -- dear viewers. . .Thank you for your support, love, opinions, and for watching! This blog is for you. I have compiled many questions that you asked on Twitter and have answered as many as I was able. I would love to hear in your comments about YOUR lives, who you are, and why you enjoyed this guilty pleasure we share.

@RachDanger: @AvivaDrescher I like how you limit your kids' exposure to the show. [Is] it hard to keep them from wanting to be on camera during filming?
Answer: My children are indifferent to the show and filming. They just want to do their kid stuff and have fun. I have tried to show them a scene or two that they are in and they watch for two seconds and then run off and play! They are bored by this show. (Sorry Bravo!!!)

@lschultz714: @AvivaDrescher Welllll, since you asked, your husbands cousin is one of my favorite actresses @frandrescher love to hear about that
Answer: Fran Drescher is a talented actress and icon. Her charitable work is extraordinary. She is brilliant, kind, and very generous. Reid and I feel lucky to have her as part of our family. She is loyal and always takes the high road.
