RHONYC's Aviva Drescher: I Don't Regret Throwing My Prosthetic Leg Across the Room
The reality star says she just wanted to make a point
“There were three shrews attacking me, and I really just wanted them to zip it,” she tells PEOPLE. “Some people throw down their glasses when they get angry and I just threw down my prosthesis. And you know what? It worked. They fled.”
Never far from some drama, Drescher has faced off with several of her cast mates on season 6 of the Bravo reality show, but when it came to tossing her leg, it was a first, even for her.
“I normally only take it off when I go to bed or shower,” she says. But despite causing a big scene, the reality star wouldn t think twice about doing it again.
“I don’t have any regrets at all. I only have experiences that I’ve learned from. If I could do this all over again, I think I would, because these girls, they just don’t listen. They didn’t want to hear what I had to say.”
One thing that concerned Drescher: Whether her prosthesis could handle being tossed through the air.
“I don’t know what I was more worried about,” she says. “The Jimmy Choo or my leg, but it all worked out.
“I’ve been going to A Step Ahead Prosthetics in New York for 12 years, and one of the reasons that I did the show is to have a platform to raise awareness for amputees. I take so much pleasure in offering guidance to the right surgeons and prosthetics, and mine didn t break!”
The drama continues with part one of The Real Housewives of New York City Reunion on Tuesday (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
