Aviva Drescher will forever be known for ripping off her prosthetic leg, tossing it on the floor of Le Cirque and announcing that the “only thing that’s fake or artificial” about her was that limb. Even though Drescher’s dramatic act didn’t save her a role in the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York City, Aviva says her stunt pulled in the highest ratings of the season.
“I looked at being a ‘Housewife’ as being a job to entertain people,” she told HuffPost Live. “It [the leg toss] was a piece of entertainment. I think the highest ratings of the entire season was that episode.”
Aviva claims she was “asked to be dramatic” by the network. “I tried my best,” she said. “I felt an obligation to earn my keep.”
