Aviva Drescher Continues To Claim Carole Used A Ghostwriter


Aviva Drescher is taking to her Bravo Blog to discuss #BookGate and her fight with Carole Radziwill this week on The Real Housewives of New York City. Aviva explains she still believes Carole used a ghostwriter, and says this is just another one of those crazy Real Housewives fights.

Aviva writes, “First, I want to reiterate last week’s blog theme — this is a stupid fight. It’s not about any of the important things that people fight about — religion, politics, sex, money, eyeglass frames — it’s about ghostwriters. Carole thinks I had one/I think Carole had one. That’s it. And as I said last week, I don’t care if Carole had one — or a hundred. But it was — or could have been — one of those fun Real Housewifey fights.

You did!

Oh Yeah!


Well, you did too!

Oh Yeah!


You’re a liar!

You’re a phony!

That’s not nice!

You hurt my feelings!

I’m so sorry!

I apologize!

I don’t accept your apology!

I don’t accept yours!

I’m even sorrier!

I’m even apologizier!

[They embrace.]



Instead, it escalated to the physical (Carole pushing me in the face — not a nice thing to do to a girl on a staircase — even a two legged girl) and new lows in insults. OK, maybe not a new low. Last year one of the housewives did call two of the others “white trash” — but still pretty low. Anyway, Carole did call me a “nothing.” That’s something, don’t you agree?

Worse, I think, is that she followed it up with “who never worked outside the house.” “A nothing who never worked outside the house.” Really, Carole? Leaving aside for a moment that it’s not true (when dealing with Carole it’s often necessary to leave aside for the moment that it’s not true), it’s insulting to every woman and man who works inside the house – whether they’re real housewives (as opposed to REAL HOUSEWIVES), mothers, domestic workers, telecommuters, business operators, editors, or . . . hang on . . . wait . . . it’s coming . . . WRITERS! Some writers work at home. What a concept.

But then, in Carole’s mind, they’re not real writers. Where did Carole do the 20 or 30 years of journalism that led to her two books and real writerdom — in Starbucks? That’s what I call keeping it real.

So here’s what I think:

–Workers work. And that makes them workers wherever they do it.

–Writers write. And that makes them writers whatever they’ve done before and wherever they do it.

You know what, Carole, if you want to continue fighting with me, fine. We get it. You’re injured because I asked you if you had help on your book. Everyone knows it. You’ve spoken about it, written about it, and even sent your surrogate Heather to go around carrying the torch of your persecution. Who knew you were so touchy? But I was the one who asked you. Me. Only me. Don’t take it out on the millions who work inside the home, or the many who consider themselves writers simply because they write.”

  1. Aviva sure is psycho, but I got to applaud her on this blog, Carole is just full of shit, yet thinks hers don’t stink *because she married into a known socialite family… obviously Carole’s stupid comment about “people who are nothing because they don’t leave their homes” is really moronic. Go write outside.

  2. I like how Aviva says in her blog “last year ONE of the housewives did call 2 others white trash.” Ha ha ha, that was YOU Aviva, take responsibility.!!

  3. Aviva even here you don’t make sense. I really liked you in the beginning until YOU called out WHITE TRASH and acted so crazy on St. Bart’s. What you are saying sbout Carole is slanderous so you better watch out Miss Knowitall.

  4. Aviva … enough already… the season has just begun and the audience is already tired of what comes out of your mouth… leave it alone. You would be better off for it!

  5. I wasn’t going to comment on this issue because it’s not an issue to me. I don’t think Carole had a ghost writer. I’m sure she had someone read what she wrote and proof it, etc… Aviva, if she said she didn’t have a ghost writer just say, “I guess I either misunderstood or someone has mis-spoken about this”. It’s her life and if it is that important let her have this. You know she was rude and it would have ended there with…Carole was so rude to Aviva….but now, You retaliated and you have so much going for you Aviva. Your wonderful husband, Carole lost her’s. Your wonderful children, Carole has none. It does make a difference to someone all alone in the world. I’m sure it knocked you back in your seat to have her so upset…. but take the high road. I think Carole should have taken a higher road as well.
    At this point I’d just have a pat answer… obviously I got mis information. Let it go. Only you and she know who helped you. It really doesn’t matter. What matters is if the book is good and if it sells. That’s the true proof in the pudding. It doesn’t seem like a fight worth fighting. “Take a Xanax” I mean that lovingly; and remember what is important in life. You’ve got it all… enjoy it.

  6. Aviva you are too weird and neurotic to bring anything to this show. I can’t stand when your scenes are on and you need to go get help for a lot of your issues. I really hoped they weren’t going to bring you back. You aren’t fun.

  7. Seriously your lame attempt at sardonic humor in your blog proves you’re not a writer. Just let it go -this is not an attractive side of you. Journalism is Carole’s job so when you say she had a ghost writer it suggests she can’t do her job.Also her first book was so personal and cathartic to her to suggest that it wasn’t her thoughts is an insult. Drink some wine, hug your kids and take the high road.
