Real Housewives of New York Sneak Peek: Ramona Takes on Aviva's Dad on Season 5, Episode 17 Preview (VIDEO)

Aviva Drescher's wacky dad was a force for amusement early in The Real Housewives of New York Season 5, but his return is a bit more dramatic in Episode 17: "Don't Make Room For Daddy" (airing September 24).

RHONY’s Ramona Says Aviva’s “White Trash” Insult Is Like Using the N-Word

We knew that Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan were taken aback after Aviva Drescher called them both "white trash, quite frankly" in St. Barts. But the vivacious The Real Housewives of New York pair has a few insults up their sleeves as well. "[Aviva] was actually much more vicious than viewers saw," Ramona tells Star magazine. "Bravo edited it, so she didn’t look as bad." Ramona also insinuates that Aviva wasn’t taking her medication, a point...

The Real Housewives of New York City 5.17 Preview - It's Now Time For Aviva vs. Ramona

During Monday night's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City , I didn't think Aviva's issues with Ramona and Sonja could get worse than what was displayed on my TV screen that night. However, after Bravo aired the "Next Time On..." segment of the episode, I realized that I was horribly wrong. Oh, God, I was so wrong. didn't make matters any better by releasing two preview clips featuring not only Aviva attacking ' confronting ' Ramona, but her dirty ol' dad George doing her dirty work as well! I don't know what's worse, the fact that Aviva has latched on to Ramona like a rabid dog would to piece of raw meat, or that she's officially brought her dad into the mix when he doesn't really have anything to do with her drama. If you noticed at the end of the "Next Time On..." segment Monday, George was escorted out of Ramona's event after grabbing her by the arm. Now Aviva has more reason to come for Ramona, because not only has she insulted her husband, but Ramona has also disrespected her father as well. In short, Ramona will never win for losing when it comes to Aviva's demands. Now before anyone declares that I must be swimming deep in Ramona's Pinot Grigio wine to be siding with her, I stress again that Ramona and Sonja were not completely innocent when it came to plotting to get Reid to leave the mansion. However, Aviva has taken this issue past 'extreme' and into "what the hell are you smoking, girl?!" territory and in that regard, Ramona and Sonja come off looking like angels at this point. Here is a clip of the preview, followed by clips from next week's episode. Aviva, girl... Woowee! The Real Housewives of New York City airs Mondays @ 9/8c on Bravo Photo Credit: Bravo

Sonja Morgan on Aviva Drescher: "You Should Not Judge Other People" — Exclusive

The Real Housewives of New York Season 5 went from dramatic to insane as soon as the women took off on a "girls trip" to St. Barts. Between LuAnn de Lesseps's "cheating" scandal and the big blow up between Aviva Drescher and the unbreakable duo, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan, there was so much drama it took three episodes to cover it all. When Wetpaint Entertainment had a chance to catch up with Sonja at OK! Magazine’s 4th Annual Fashion Week Celebration on September 10, we had to ask...

A Handy Guide to the Sanity of 'The Real Housewives of New York City'

Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City was even more of a study in crazieness then usual out of the cast members (there must be something about a tropical island that brings out the cuckoo in the ladies from the Big Apple, because we?re sensing a little Scary Island deja vu). That said, let?s rank the cast members from most sane to most batsh*t.
