'Real Housewife' throws artificial leg, sparks #LegGate

'The Real Housewives Of New York': Aviva Throws Her Leg Across The Room!


We thought we'd seen it all on "The Real Housewives Of New York" -- the weave snatch, the wine throw, the table flip ... but never before have we seen the artificial leg toss ... until LegGate.

Aviva said, "The only thing that is artificial or fake about me is this!" She threw her artificial leg onto the table, adding, "And I'm sick of it!"

She continued, "I'll crawl home. Here ... go ahead. Go ahead, Heather!" Avia then threw her leg in front of Heather, who was completely shocked.

As E! notes, the epic leg toss was a great way to remind viewers Aviva is still here. The housewife has actually been pretty absent this season ... but no one's going to forget this. Not Kristen, not LuAnn, not anyone. Of course, Andy Cohen was loving the beautiful Reality TV moment, posting this pic on his Instagram, and even reenacting it on "Watch What Happens Live." On Twitter, #leggate was trending.

One thing is for sure, the wild moment is definitely going down in Reality TV history, and we're not pulling your leg.

If you want to know what is wrong with America then all you have to do is look at how many people are watching this crap on TV (along with other reality shows like Honey Boo Boo) instead of watching the news to learn about what is going on in the world (most 20 somethings don't even know about Crimea or why there is a war going on in Israel and Palestine) and watch shows that have value instead of ones that promote stupidity and promiscuity. Heck most people are more concerned with looking at Faceboook and using Snapchat than they are about looking up from their smartphones to see if it is safe to cross the street.

Yes, we need some comedies as relief for the endless wars and stuff going on in the news. Personally, though, I don't think most of these so-called reality shows fill that bill.

Not sure how many friends Aviva has, but after that unbalanced display, I'm thinking quite a few will be distancing themselves from knowing her. Ratings or not, for an excuse, that was beyond trailer trash behavior!

Having watched a bit of several of these shows to see what was what, I was disgusted by these housewives (so-called). It just goes to show that no matter how much money you have, doesn't mean you posses any class. These gals are all classless. Ugh. Really disgusting. Double ugh.

Didn't one of them record a song titled, "Money can't buy you class?" Sure didn't buy her any.

Why is anyone surprised, they are all nuts. It's time to stop these ignorant, crude women who pretend to be part of the upper class. If this is upper class, I'm glad I don't belong to their kind.

The show has the most ugly women compared to all the other housewife shows. Carol is repulsive to look at and she is SINGLE for a reason or two. Aviva you should of thrown it at carol and the other bestie of yours , yeah the one with the HUGE NOSE that walks into glass doors. Those two women ruined the show, get rid of those two bring back Jill :)

Guilty pleasure - housewives shows.

Aviva has her faults as do each of the other women - some more than Aviva.

But sticking with what precipitated the leg throw is the other women. A ladies' trip was planned. Aviva has asthma - she didn't want to go on the trip anyway. She was sick of the constant drama from the ‘perfect’ women.

A group of these women are always bullying one or more of the other women. There are a few women who don’t like getting involved with the gang bullying. A particular group of women kept attacking Aviva arguing with her and telling her she didn't have asthma, or they didn't believe she has asthma. She pointed out to them that she was using an inhaler which was prescribed, via a prescription from her doctor. They continued to argue with her about it and talk about her behind her back.

Aviva lost her leg when she was a child. After many difficult years and after much therapy, she adapted to her new life.

Aviva does a lot of work with other women, including a woman who lost a limb in the Boston Marathon Bombings. She helps these adjust to living their lives with prostheses.

I don't see any of the other ‘housewives’ do any that compassionate or caring with anyone. They donate money, they run fund-raisers but none of them gives their time and heart-and-soul like Aviva.

There is Heather, the thug who thinks she knows it all – when she doesn’t.
Heather loves throwing around the MF word. Someone that does that is nothing but a thug and a low-life. She can put on her act of perfection but her actions and her words tell the true story of Heather. She is the ring-leader. She is the bully that is a threat to anyone. She’s that young kid in high school that drives other children to commit suicide. A bully in school, a bully when you’re an adult – there’s no difference. A bully is a bully.

Then we have Andy Cohen who thrives on housewives disasters, crisis and deaths. A housewife’s husband committed suicide – Cohen used that when airing that series.

Aviva was sick and tired of the women always accusing her of one thing or another. They’re always calling her a fake. A liar. At that dinner, she told them the only thing no real about her was her prosthesis – then she threw that prosthesis.

Aviva lost a leg, an extremely traumatic, emotional and mental event.

Cohen and the other women find great humor in it. They laugh about it. Cohen is throwing around a mannequin’s ‘leg’ while making fun of Aviva. The other women join in.

While they pretend they’re classy women – the are the polar opposites.

Maybe if they lost a limb, then they’d understand.

Please get rid of all the so-called "housewives" programs. It is all garbage, and these people bring nothing of value to humanity. Please enoguh already.
