Can’t wait for Real Housewives of New York to return? To tide you over until the new season premiere on March 11 on Bravo, check out the brand-new book from one of the ladies: Aviva Drescher‘s crazy, juicy, dramatic Leggy Blonde: A Memoir.
The book’s preface warns you that what you’re about to read is packed full of drama. All the hallmarks of memoir—addiction, tragedy, difficult parents, parties, weird sex, trips to mysterious lands? It’s all in her life, so there’s not one dull moment. What’s interesting about Aviva’s book is that there is no faux tragedy to be found. She’s not like other Housewives or celebrities, who sometimes feel like they’re creating fake narratives about how difficult their wealthy childhoods were. Aviva’s young life was seriously awful, and her sense of humor and eventual triumph make you instantly connect with her.
Of course, the aspect of the book that will haunt your dreams is her retelling of the ghastly childhood accident that cost Aviva her foot. It is truly horrific, and you’re rooting for her to have a happy life right from that beginning. A couple of catty ladies in the Big Apple seem like small potatoes compared to a machine with teeth biting off your leg!
Aviva’s book is out today, and available here. Check it out! You won’t be able to put it down.
