She publicly supported her father George Teichner’s engagement to Dana Cody, but Aviva Drescher wasn't enough of a fan to attend the wedding, it turns out.

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 43, was nowhere in sight when Teichner, 76, traded vows with Cody, 25, in Malibu, Calif., on Sunday.

Aviva Drescher, Father

In the past, she's said of the couple, “I believe that Cody and my father are truly in love, and while it may be unconventional, I support my father.”

George Teichner, meanwhile, has called the relationship “ecstasy.”

“We are happily immersed in an oblivion wrought by joy!” George said of his bride. “When you’re ready for it to happen, love hits you like a ton of bricks.”

While Aviva wasn't there to throw her leg, Dana Cody dressed in a traditional white gown with matching sandals, while Teichner wore a dapper suit.

Here's wishing the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness with no limbs winged in their direction in a restaurant by Cody's unpredictable stepdaughter:

Joan Rivers is taking an interesting approach to promoting her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva.

Instead of making the talk show rounds and playing nice with guests and audiences, as celebs usually do when they're hocking memoirs, Joan has embarked on a one-woman mission to offend every man, woman, and child in Hollywood. And it seems to be working:

Appearing on Watch What Happens Live! last night, Joan was asked by host Andy Cohen for her opinion about the Real Housewives of New York and their style choices. He had to know what was coming:

"I know they're your pets," replied Rivers. "[But] they look like whores."

Rivers warned the crowd at the start of the show that she'd had a bad day and wouldn't be playing nice, and her interview was all the more entertaining for it, as she riffed on celebs ranging from Tommy Lee Jones to Helen Keller:

On part one of The Real Housewives of New York City reunion, Sonja Morgan was the primary target of the group, which is an impressive feat for her.

After all, Aviva Drescher threw her leg in the season finale.

That topic was not far from anyone's mind, clearly, but Morgan was the woman called “delusional” by virtually every other cast member in attendance.

When Morgan claimed that her husband worked for Diddy and that Diddy was on her yacht, they jumped on her to remind her that she doesn't have a yacht.

Fond memories of a bygone era.

This was definitely the theme of the evening on Bravo; Kristen Teakman got so fired up about it that she jumped up and started singing, “delusional.”

It was a pretty terrific song that almost makes it worth your while to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online just for that particular scene.

It's not often that one encounters someone taking off their prosthetic leg, bang it on the table and throw it across the table to make a point at a restaurant.

Not everyone can be Aviva Drescher, however.

  • Aviva Drescher's Leg
  • Aviva Drescher Leg

The reality star says her leg-throwing shenanigans on The Real Housewives of New York City season finale last night were not planned ... and she's not sorry.

After a heated argument at Le Cirque, in which she was called a phony, Aviva Drescher threw her leg, saying the prothesic limb is the only "fake" thing about her.

The way she seamlessly delivered that comeback, punctuated by the removal of the leg, led many to believe that the eye-popping stunt was premeditated.

Not the case, she says - but she'd do it again.

"I just thought the whole thing was funny," the RHONY cast member says. "I just think accusing somebody of making up an illness is funny."

"I think Heather [Thomson] standing up and yelling at me like a pit bull is funny. I think me getting angry and throwing my leg on the table was really funny and crazy."

"I get a hoot out of it," Aviva says, noting wittily, "but of course, I was definitely brought to the end of my rope, or the end of my leg so to speak."

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 certainly went out with a bang Tuesday, as the Bravo show saved its most memorable moment for last:

Aviva. Threw. Her. Leg.

Having been more or less absent from the show for weeks, the cast member returned for The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 finale.

And then some.

Aviva Drescher's repeated absences, and allegations of faking medical conditions to bail on events, became a tense topic of discussion at dinner.

Whipping out her x-rays and doctor's notes, which every normal person carries around with them, did little to appease Aviva's chorus of critics.

With Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman all ganging up on her, the gloves came off.

Or the leg, as it were.

On The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 20, the last leg of the journey was completed for the annoying and posh Manhattanites.

Aviva's leg was also thrown, literally, in a public setting.

Will it be the final chance to watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo? With rumors swirling about the show's future, it may well be curtains.

If so, it at least it was a leg-endary conclusion.

The epic conclusion may not quite rival the craziness of Teresa Giudice's table flip on Season 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but it was close.

The insanity began when Sonja Morgan decided to toss a "Team Sonja" bash to thank all the people she pays to be around her and provide services.

"I'm glad she has a team," LuAnn de Lesseps laughed, adding in an understatement that we're all thinking, "Now, the team is really bizarre."

That it is, but the team had nothing on what was about to go down.

The rarely-seen Aviva Drescher (so rarely seen that many thought she was the fired Aviva Drescher) took the women off guard and heightened tensions.

Last night on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 19, we learned that Harry Dubin may have cheated on Sonja with LuAnn.

Dude gets around ... like a record.

The drama came at Carole Radziwill's birthday party, which commemorated her turning 50 (who knew) with a Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil theme.

You can watch The Real Housewives of New York City online to see it unfold for yourself, but to sum up the key reveals from the soiree briefly:

  1. LuAnn de Lesseps, in tears, confessed to the ladies that she and Jacques called it quits following four years together, leaving her crushed.
  2. Harry gave Sonja Morgan a promise ring. So touching.
  3. Moments after that, Harry bounced ... with LuAnn!

Not only has Harry dated both Sonja and LuAnn in the past, he was once married to Aviva Drescher. He's the RHONYC neighborhood bicycle.

If you thought The Real Housewives of New York City had shown you every kind of drama under the sun, think again.

According to sources on set, next week's season finale will feature an "epic" cat fight in which several of the ladies get violently tipsy during dinner, and one of them commits an act of violence never before seen on reality TV.

Page Six reports that after a "wild argument" breaks out among the cast, Aviva Drescher "yells what do you want? Do you want me to crawl out of here?"

The insider continues, "All the while she's shimmying out of her prosthetic leg under the table." She then throws the limb at her antagonist in plain view of other patrons.

We may never know if she was really that mad or just trying to save her job following rumors that the entire cast of RHONY will be fired. Either way, that's how you bring the drama.

Prior to season six of The Real Housewives of New York City, LuAnn de Lesseps role was reduced from primary cast member to "friend," meaning that she appeared in fewer episodes for dramatically reduced pay.

Now it seems the move was more of a blow to LuAnn's ego than to her pocketbook, as the the Countess is reportedly willing to do anything to star in season seven as a full-fledged Housewife - including work for free.

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps

LuAnn is rumored to be ramping up the drama in her life, as insiders close to the show claim she was cut from the main cast because she "just wasn't bringing it."

LuAnn and Aviva Dresher feuded at a recent charity event in what some believe to be a part of the Countess' campaign to get back on RHONY full time.

There's a singing showdown on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 18 and as Ramona was quick to point out, there was no auto-tuning.

Boy, do we wish there had been. We recap the singing that should be kept to the shower in our THG +/- review.

Ramona Singer couldn't have been more happy… or more drunk. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the two but husband Mario was about to sing her a love ballad in public. 

Ramona Gets Mean

Plus 15 to Ramona. For her I'm sure it was very sweet. Minus 25 for the rest of us who had to sit through the song. Why does everyone on these shows think they can sing?

At least Harry had a plan to keep himself entertained for the night. Eat lots of chicken wings and have sex with Sonja in the restroom. 

And why has Sonja heard Mario sing in the shower?!?
