NOTE: For anyone “confused” about the age of this particular New York Housewife… do the math! “Vivs” was 10 years old at the time of her accident in 1981, she is NOT 38… she is 41.
A big part of Aviva Drescher’s storyline on the Real Housewives of New York is her leg… or lack of one.
Some research has revealed that Aviva was doin’ somethin’ she shouldn’t have been doin’ in an upstate NY farmer’s barn when she was 10 years old, which resulted in her foot being caught in machinery which cleaned out cow stalls. Aviva’s foot was reattached at the hospital; however, was amputated again when infection set in.
Aviva’s family sued for over $10 million… they settled for $1.2 million…
