Aviva interacts with fans on Twitter, in a meaningful way, not just superficialities. She’s not trying to sell them anything (at least not yet), she doesn’t retweet every flattering thing said about her, in short, she behaves like a human being, not a famewhore. If asked a question, she generally answers.
So far she has shown grace and charm, though we know her life is a little more challenging than we would like for ours to be. Granted, being wealthy can only help matters in her situation, but tell me, would you trade?
In the Season 5 Premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City, new cast member Aviva Drescher went with Sonja Morgan for a pedicure, where she revealed that she not only has an artificial leg, but she has two of them – one for high heels and one for flats! And she has to bring them both along any time she gets a pedicure so that all fifteen of her toes match!
“I can change it in 10 seconds,” “A few times I’ve forgotten to bring my flat leg to the Hamptons – so I’m walking on tippy toes all weekend!”
Aviva also revealed that, like lots of women, she watches her weight, but not just to maintain her great figure. Her customized limbs will no longer fit if she loses or gains more than 8 pounds!
It’s obvious that Aviva hasn’t let the loss of her leg limit her ability to live a full life, but how limiting is it physically? “Physically I can do anything,” says Drescher, who cycles and works out while wearing her leg five times a week.
Aviva’s prosthetic limb is cast from a mold of her right leg (so I guess you could say it is Aviva’s newest “cast member”) and cost approximately $25,000. Aviva estimates she has 50 different legs since her accident.
And JZ has lost what was left of her mind. Read it if you dare. She deleted it after she wrote it
