Aviva Drescher jokes that Lea Michele is Carole Radziwill's ghostwriter

Aviva Drescher, like a true star of "The Real Housewives of New York City," hasn't let a diss slide without a sarcastic response. On Saturday, May 24, Aviva posted a tweet in response to "Glee" star Lea Michele's comments about her during her recent appearance on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live."

During her time on "WWHL," Andy asked Lea what she thought of the New York City housewives. Lea revealed that she's a fan of the show and is actually good friends with Carole Radziwill. Lea said that she even recently went out with her and had a great time.

Lea then behaved a bit like a housewife herself by throwing some shade. She said that she's on Team Carole "100 percent." Lea was referring to the feud between Carole and Aviva, which erupted earlier in the season after Aviva, taken aback when Carole asked her if she used a ghostwriter for her book "Leggy Blonde," turned it around and accused Carole of using a ghostwriter for both of her books, "What Remains" and "The Widow's Guide to Sex and Dating." Aviva went so far as naming the supposed ghostwriter.

Because she's such good friends with Carole, Lea joked that if she ever saw Aviva, Aviva would have to turn the other way. Aviva, instead of keeping quiet, decided to respond to the actress with some humor. "AHAA... @msleamichele so you're her ghostwriter!!!!" she tweeted, obviously not one to let the feud, dubbed "bookgate," die. Some people responded to the tweet saying that it was hilarious while others told Aviva to grow up and rise above it.

One person even challenged Lea to join "The Real Housewives of New York City" after "Glee" ends to see whether she can actually win against Aviva. So far, Carole Radziwill, perhaps wanting to move on from the feud, has yet to publicly respond to either woman or talk about Lea Michele's defense of her and Aviva Drescher's rebuttal.
