It's no secret: Aviva Drescher, Fran Drescher's cousin and newest Housewife, is an amputee.
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!
