Aviva Drescher Apparently Throws Her Prosthetic Leg In “RHONY” Season Finale

A lot of crazy shit has gone down on "The Real Housewives," but no one has ever thrown a body part before. On the season finale of "RHONY," Aviva Drescher apparently removes her prosthetic leg at Le Cirque — a very fancy restaurant — and hurls it across the restaurant. Table-flipping seems so quaint now.

Of all people in the world, my jock-y, mainstream, but also book-nerd boyfriend was the person who got me into watching "So You Think You Can Dance". When I told him I hadn’t seen it, he scoff-laughed and said, “You’re gonna watch it,” then proceeded to wax poetic about the show and how he wishe…

Study: “27 Dresses” And “The Bachelorette” Are Messing With Your Love Life

Researchers have found evidence that watching rom-coms and sitcoms impact our views on love. TV seems to shape our view of reality in every other realm of life, so I'm not exactly shocked it's also true for romance.

New Reality Show “Born In The Wild” Depicts Moms Giving Birth In The Forest

Childbirth is a miracle. It's a miracle that I intend to experience (hypothetically, in the distant future, maybe) with an epidural and as many pain-numbing drugs as they'll give me. Some moms-to-be go the other extreme: giving birth outdoors, literally on the floor of the fuckin' woods, sans a doctor. And because this is America, there'…

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: Andi Goes On The Most Embarrassing & Unhinged Dates In “Bachelorette” History
