Aviva's "Foul Ignorance"

Heather Thomson sounds off on Aviva Drescher calling her ghetto.

By Heather Thomson

Well, here we are again for a second week sitting on the couch. I have to reiterate how grateful I am to be next to my girls, Carole, Kristen, and Lu. Can you say, “Same page?” 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

Anyway, this week we get into the trip to the Berkshires. All in all, I really enjoyed the weekend with the ladies up at our Berkshire nest. As I write this blog, I am sitting at the kitchen table looking out at the mountains watching Jax and Ella play in the yard. It is truly a tranquil, lovely, and most of all, relaxing place away from the busy life we all lead. For my family and me it's a place full of memories, get-togethers, activities, and laughter, and I hate to even defend its value to Ramona, who is acting like a pretentious brat and quite frankly, is being ridiculous. There is almost nothing worse to me than elitist behavior. That and foul ignorance (but more on that later).


What's funny is Ramona is painting a lifestyle that is seemingly much grander than what it really is...let’s be honest. And seriously?! Mud pies!? Panic attack? I don't think so, and I broke it down for her: if you wanted to leave early, (which she had planned all along), just say so! I could have cared less. In fact, we had more fun after she flew away! Flying away from the problem is instinctual for Ramona after all. She drops a bomb and runs for cover. It's the same pattern again and again; she can’t deal with the absolute truth and changes the subject when she doesn't like the subject at hand... And she is doing it again with Andy when he tries to bring up the Mario situation, but Lu's not really havin’ that! But enough about Singer... Unlike a great workout, she is exhausting but for all the wrong reasons!

[video_clip_url:]Now onto foul ignorance... Ghetto? Gangster? Really? Are you referring to race or a socio-economic situation? Nice, Aviva, you ignorant cow. I think it is actually easy for this sedated narcissist to label me ghetto because I stood up for my friend. Sadly, she wouldn't know what that feels like. I would NEVER get physical with anyone no matter how pushed I am (remember her minion she tried to sic on me?), but I WILL use the strongest language when defending what I believe is right. My upbringing was barely middle class, and I make no apologies for that. My mother raised my sister and me with very little help, and I am very proud of my upbringing and my mother, especially as I reflect back on what she gave us as I raise two children of my own. 

From both my parents and grandparents, I was taught strong values and ethics and I was given the tools to build a moral code that money can't buy or sell. I was taught the value of hard work and the importance of good manners, but most importantly, I was taught to stand up for my beliefs and the value of honesty. I believe my success in business now is attributable to the lessons my mother taught me growing up. Aviva needs a mirror and she needs to open her eyes and look into it. Start there, girl. It's never too late! I am a woman and I am allowed in 2014 to be as strong as anyone without being labeled. And what's more, you wouldn't last a day in the ghetto, Drescher. Just a few words out of your snobby mouth and they'd likely take off that fancy leg of yours and beat your sorry, elitist, ignorant ass with it. Holla!

I hope you are all having an amazing summer. I can’t believe it is August already, but let’s squeeze the most out of it before “school starts.” And the ride continues next week! Tune in again to see the conclusion to Season 6 of The Real Housewives of NYC!
