RHONYC's Aviva Drescher Opens Up About Her Leg, Anxieties, Marriage & More!

The Real Housewives of New York City star Aviva Drescher is a fighter — and we don’t mean with her costars!

The blonde bombshell has overcome tremendous obstacles to become the woman she is today and now she’s sharing her story of survival in Leggy Blonde: A Memoir.

At age 6, Aviva lost her foot in a barn accident which resulted in her wearing a prosthetic leg. She didn’t let it slow her down though!

In her early twenties, Aviva transformed herself into a wild club chick and danced on tables with the crème de la crème of the big-hair supermodel era. She also got a law degree and became an entrepreneur, a wife and a mother despite struggling with chronic panic attacks and phobias.

The real terror of Aviva’s life, though, was her own mother’s debilitating alcoholism. Thanks to her husband, Reid Drescher, Aviva came to terms with her mother’s early death, got a grip on her anxieties, and found the strength to show the world who she really is.

Leggy Blonde exposes the truth about Aviva’s many surgeries, her tumultuous relationships and what really happens behind the scenes of reality TV.
