Accusations are spreading about Aviva Drescher and Carole Radziwill using ghostwriters for their books. Fox News reports on March 30 that the “Real Housewives of New York” stars have been pointing fingers at each other while claiming each one has relied on ghostwriters. However, Drescher claims she only used a ghostwriter to help her edit her book and did not need help writing.
Drescher’s new book, “Leggy Blonde,” is being criticized by Radziwill because she allegedly knows the housewife relied on several ghostwriters to help her and refuses to admit it. Valerie Frankel and Rebecca Paley have been named as the two writers who worked on the book, but Drescher insists that she never worked with Paley, and Frankel only provided services as an editor.
Radziwill is also accused of using ghostwriters for her books, and it is a common pattern among reality stars to turn to the services of others while working on their memoirs. The “Real Housewives of New York” have found a way to add literary drama to the show with Drescher and Radziwill engaged in a new feud.
Radziwill denies needing a ghostwriter, but she is surprised that Drescher refuses to share how many she actually used for her book. Radziwill’s blog accuses Drescher of lying and slandering because she is trying to cover up her own ghostwriting. Radziwill calls out her appearance on national television that included a statement about her career that is illegal.
