“The Real Housewives of New York” star Carole Radziwill was shocked that her former friend, Aviva Drescher, would attack her about her writing career, and claim that she wrote her first book using a ghostwriter. If she had heard from other sources that Carole had used a ghostwriter, she should have defended her friend Carole from such slanderous words. She should not have jumped on the bandwagon. According to a new Bravo report published on March 25, “The Real Housewives of New York” star Carole Radziwill is now revealing that she considers Aviva Drescher’s words “slander.”
“So first, Slander. Aviva lied on the show and then to cover up her lies she slandered my career on national television. On a show where not showing up for a dinner can launch a three-episode throwdown this isn't some dumb "reality" fight. It's not a joke, and she knows it and her publisher knows it,” Carole reveals in her blog for the show. She was upset after having to defend her career. And of course, no one is questioning her career and her writing abilities.
It appears that only Aviva believes her own lies. “The lies she is promoting in the press and social media, and of course her scenes on RHONY, are all legally actionable. You can call someone a lousy writer. You can say you hate their book. You can even call a person "white trash" but you can't go on television and slander a person's career. It's illegal, even on reality shows,” Carole adds.
Of course, many fans are hoping that Carole will take legal action against Aviva to shut her up. Like Carole has said, this isn't just another reality television fight. This is her career and her livelihood. If she loses this, she loses everything. It would be the same as claiming that Aviva would do evil things to her children, given she is a stay-at-home mother. She could lose everything from that too.
