What we didn't know, however was how or why it happened… something that we've been pretty curious about!
So Aviva explained: she lost the leg when she was six years old in a farming accident while visiting a friend upstate.
But that didn't stop her from having a fulfilling life and love life! In fact, it kinda weeded the jerks from her dating sphere:
“When I first started dating at Fieldston [her high school]. But in law school, it was different. People are sexually attracted to each other, and after a date or two I’d have to tell them. It’s a great way to weed out the ones who shouldn’t have been with me. It was almost a protection from the bad ones out there."
We're so totally excited to see what she brings to the show — regardless of the amputation backstory!

Guess Rosie O'Donnell's upcoming guest-starring role on Happily Divorced was a two-for-one kind of deal for her!
She got to take a break from talk shows to do some acting AND she got to spend some time with her close friend Fran Drescher!
The comedienne makes an appearance tonight on the TV Land series as a childhood friend of the former Nanny, but also took the opportunity to come visit the west side - and is even crashing in Malibu with the actress!
Ch-ch-check out this lovely AND EXCLUSIVE to PerezHilton.com pic of the pair out to dinner together (above)!
Oh man! It has been SO long since we've seen her act!
We'd forgotten how GOOD she really is!
Rosie O'Donnell is clearly keeping busy in light of her latest talk show getting canned by the OWN network, and in tomorrow night's episode of Fran Drescher's new TV Land series, Happily Divorced, she makes an appearance as an old friend from junior high who offers her some help with a, ahem, 'standoff-ish' pooch!
And PerezHilton.com has an EXCLUSIVE first look!

Here's hoping that Rosie continues to pop in on this show every now and again - she and Fran have AH-mazing chemistry!
