The Disturbing Lunch
Sidebar: The most critically acclaimed, New York Times best selling authors use ghostwriters but not Carole, who’s only authored two books?!? Hmmmm…ok!
Aviva And Ramona Meet At The Liquor Store
Aviva and Ramona meet at
Ramona’s second home the liquor store and the topic of Aviva’s and Carole’s lunch meeting comes up. Aviva explains to Ramona, Carole’s condescending attitude and proceeds to say Carole used a ghostwriter by the name of Bob Whitworth.
A Hit Dog Will Always Holla
Simultaneously, Carole, Kristen and Heather meet in Central Park and Carole immediately brings up the topic of Aviva’s ghostwriter comment. Carole is retelling the story but fails to mention she asked the same question first. If Carole truly wrote her own book and didn’t use a ghostwriter why would she care or give Aviva’s claim any credence? Heather is convinced Aviva is being ridiculous and spreading lies because Carole’s book was on the New York Times best-seller list and Carole appeared on Oprah. Heather, Google….James Frey (A Million Little Pieces), Herman Rosenblat (Angel at the Fence) and Anthony Godby Johnson (A Rock and a Hard Place).
Next, we’re at Kristen’s house and the house is filled with kids playing and adults congregating. Heather and her family are visiting. Kristen express that her daughter, Kingsley is experiencing a developmental delay. She’s not walking at 17 months and needs to wear braces. Heather details her son’s illness and how his liver transplant saved his life. Very touching and emotional scene. The women share a heartfelt moment and a hug.
It’s Moving Day At The Drescher House
Quote of the Night:
“Maybe Carole wrote the book herself, maybe she didn’t but that’s no reason for her to get snooty on Aviva. Why can’t Carole just congratulate Aviva on getting a book published, period. My feeling is more power to you girlfriend!”
Heather & Aviva Meet For Pedicures
Heather and Aviva meet for pedicures and Heather has an agenda. She has a bone to pick with Aviva for supposedly “defaming” her friend’s reputation. Heather questions Aviva like she’s an FBI agent and Aviva is a government witness. Asking her about the purpose of her book, her target audience and the biggest insult of all….if she didn’t have celebrity or fame no one would buy the book. Heather is shady boots personified.
Sonja Morgan and Harry Dubin, Aviva’s ex-husband go on a date. The two have previously
bump gums dated. These two are cute together. Harry is an old charmer Hugh Hefner player type and Sonja is the drunken floozy looking to get laid every night type. I admire Sonja’s tenacity. I say they’re a match made in heaven and should stop playing games. Harry needs to put a ring on it. I guess his thought process is why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free. Personally, I much more prefer Harry and Sonja as a couple than Sonja and her barely legal boy toy.
Kristen gets caught in the crossfire. She’s not part of the village. She doesn’t know what to say about all these claims of ghostwriters. There’s only one model, there’s only one writer. It’s a singular skill. Ramona explains to Kristen just because your name is on the book does not mean you wrote it alone. Not that she’s saying Carole had help, just to clarify her stance on attribution.
