Carole will probably be "Writer Girl" for Halloween.....a big W on the front and a cape....

When Carole asked if Aviva used a ghostwriter, I thought Carole came off as condescending and a bit threatened, like Aviva was treading on her territory. But watching the reunion, I got the idea that editing had distorted the scene in question so it's unclear what exactly happened.

I personally loved Avivas come back to Carole and feel that she did that "writer girl" thing for all of us who have been over Carole a season ago...I thought it was true...is that the best word that a writer could come up with?  I thought it showed how quick Aviva really is....and feel that dialogue needs to go down in housewife history....

I bet my life that Carole is now all over NYC introducing herself as "Writer Girl," then pausing to say, "i'm sorry, is that weird? Cause I thought that was weird..." You go, writer girl...

Aviva's blogs and behavior do nothing more than reveal what a nasty piece of work she is. I think it's so rich that she's going after Carole's credentials as a writer - she refers to herself as a lawyer when she didn't even pass the bar or practice.

Also, Carole compares having a career to having a family (kids). Now that's weird! Get over yourself Carole. You would have been better off having the family because the career you have really isn't all that --is it?. Well until TRHONY. Oh sorry, I'm forgetting the book spin off sitcom. By the way, is Carole writing/producing the show or is there a TEAM of writers and producers? Aviva better stay away from this one.

Aviva is yelling at Carole for constantly using the word weird lol. Aviva says I respect writers that use real words and have a vocabulary WRITER GIRL lmao Writer Girl wouldn't that be author. Talk about not having a vocabulary TOOOO funny.

Memo to Aviva:  All writers use EDITORS. Non-writers use GHOSTWRITERS. End. Of. Story.

I don't think Aviva really wants Carol to "Use her words," just saying.

Carole's blog is excellent this week. Not only does she take the word WEIRD to new heights she signed it "Writer Girl". LOL!!!  Aviva's blog is incredibly bitter and downright nasty. Poor Aviva just can't stop herself.

That was rude, Aviva has the chance to say "just because your book is'nt selling your upset" i would like to have heard from Carol as to how her book is doing compared to Aviva's???

If I was Carole, I'd give Aviva and Andy Cohen the silent treatment.  Andy said he'd give Carole her turn to talk, but neglected to ask Aviva to be quiet... instead, closing the book.  Guess he wanted to get that wise-crack in before the commercial. If there was a show following Carole, Heather, Kristen and Luann, I'd watch it, but someone likes to add in DRAMA to make it controversial.  I don't particularly like manufactured drama... I prefer serendipity and inspiration.

Carol, I care. Aviva says nobody cares, I care, you are the best!

Gotta love legal scholar Aviva 'using HER words', shamelessly taking CR to the woodshed for using weird as a descriptive, by calling her 'writer girl'.  Somehow there's just an added kick to the amusement,  when Aviva, as usual, puts her foot in her own mouth.  ALL puns intended ;)

@nexxie Go read Carole's blog from the lunch scene when ghost writers are brought up. She explains the whole situation. Aviva lies the whole season, calling it her team, but refuses to acknowlege a ghost writer as part of HER team which was not a part of Carole's team.

Aviva is absurd. Just because Carole is a writer by profession does not mean she should talk day to day as if she were writing for publication in everything she says. She is not pretentious and attention seeking, negatively, like Aviva is.

I thought the same exact thing. I think Aviva gets off on destroying people. I really think she is so hurt by Carole asking her if she had a ghost writer that she wants Carole to feel her pain. I don't think Carole was out of line or inappropriate asking her the question AFTER all Aviva never wrote a book before. Aviva wants to assisnate Carol and her career because in her sick mind Aviva thinks Carole did that to her. Aviva has an expectation how people should react to her. She wants Rah Rah response and when she doesn't get what she wants you are going to feel the wrath of Aviva

@EzrieStaples I hate reading these potshots about Carole not having kids. Her husband's testicular cancer left him unable to have kids, and she spent a good deal of the marriage taking care of him. Digs about her not having a family are cruel.

@EzrieStaples The only weird thing is how personally you seem to take all of this in defending Aviva. Wow, such anger. 

BTW, Carole's team of editors and publishers did not include a ghost writer, unlike Aviva.

@jelliebean I LOVED the blog from Writer Girl. Widows Guide is headed to be  TV show on NBC. Aviva who?

@netti Well, What remains went on the NY Times Best seller list, as someone said, twice, and the second book is being made into a TV show. I'd say the books did quite well. AD book did not make the NY Times list nor is there a TV show offer, much less in the works. Carole:  2 , AD: 0

@mamabee99 Aviva was projecting. Carole has been on the NY Times best sellers list not only once, but twice. Aviva's book was a failure and a fraction of the people cared about her book that appreciated Carole's works. Aviva was just showing her immature, petulant forever 7 entitlement attitude.

@zookeeper93 @nexxie Nooo Carole is definitely not an attention seeker...she just walks backward these days for better balance, not because she believes she has a great derriere ....nooo of course not

It's so true. If everyone isn't stroking her ego, she lashes out. It's ugly.

@ElsieKowbell @jelliebean Carole cracks me up. It is hysterical that Aviva attacks Carole for the using the word weird, because it is not eloquent enough and yet Aviva can only come up with "Writer Girl", like it is a contest to who can come up with the best insult using big words. Aviva is a laughable mess. She only made more of a fool of herself at every turn.

I agree. Taaaaa Daaaaaa Daaaaaaaa Writer Girl..........here to save the day ..........she can use her words in many different ways and her words are here to stay.

You are so right. Aviva felt like a failure when her "village" took her book over and was projecting on Carol, a lifetime journalist and writer.

Sorry I was misspelling Carole's name. You are so right, many people love Carole! It might bother a less-than popular housewife!

@nexxie @KMCoffey There wasn't anything un-nice about asking Aviva if she had a ghost writer. It is common for celebrities to have one AND Aviva had asked Carole to check out one for her that the publisher had recommended. Aviva was a liar in saying no and wanted to perpetuate a lie, that she wrote her book without one.

@zookeeper93 @ElsieKowbell @jelliebean So true, every time Aviva tried to come back with a 'witty' response she just came off as lame!! So sad. The only way she feels relevant is to trash others...time for her to G.O.!

@ElsieKowbell @nexxie @KMCoffey Sorry, I deleted my comment before seeing yours because after watching the reunion I realized that I'd missed something in that conversation.

I agree Aviva perpetuates and creates stories in order to rationalize her point of view. In one of Aviva's talking head interviews Aviva says " it's obvious Carole feels I am beneath her" I really never got the impression Carole felt that way about Aviva I think Aviva feels that way about herself IF Aviva doesn't have a RAH RAH banner or a marching band supporting her stories she feels insecure and small ENTER stage right Sonja who supports and enables everything Aviva says SAD VERY sad :-(

@Zoeyg @zookeeper93 @ElsieKowbell @jelliebean On Carole's twitter page, a fan has posted a drawing of Carole as the super hero(ine) Writer Girl, with quill in hand. Aviva meant it as an insult but it has taken off as a great compliment to Carole!
