The 44-year-old was prompted when she was questioned on the severity of her asthma, which made her miss the group trip to Montana.

Well now, the Leggy Blonde author is revealing whether the incident was planned or spontaneous.

She said:

“Would I ever do that in real life? No. But there were several cameras around me, and was I thinking about making a show and be entertaining? Yes, absolutely.”

You heard her right! The leg incident was indeed planned.

But Fran Drescher‘s cousin isn’t apologetic. In fact, she credits her limb throwing skills to boosting the show’s ratings!

She explained:

“I look at being a Housewife as a job to entertain people, and, you know, it was a piece of the entertainment├óΓé¼┬ª The highest ratings of the entire season was that episode.”

Unfortunately, the incident wasn’t enough to save the reality TV star who was reportedly cut from the series.

But not to worry! Drescher is now a cast member on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars on WEtv.

This time, however, we hope she keeps her legs where they’re supposed to be!
