As we reported earlier this week, Aviva Drescher’s dad is officially off the market! George Teichner secretly married his 25-year-old girlfriend, Dana Lavette Cody on August 3. The pair tied the knot in a secret Malibu wedding, which was not attended by Aviva and her family.
Cody took to her Twitter to explain her stepdaughter’s absence:
“we DID NOT TELL ANYONE!!!” she wrote. “Neither family members were aware!! My #HUSBAND & myself only allowed the world to view our love via #RHONY @bravotv so that the public can understand that #truelove & #soulmates exist despite ageism, & cultural differences!! We are truly not into “showbiz” -only into each other… Certain moments in life are #priceless!!!!!”
Aviva opened up to Us Weekly about the happy news—and there are no hard feelings she wasn’t by her father’s side. “I am so happy for my father and Cody!” she said. “They did get married! They eloped!”
In past interviews, Cody has described her relationship with Aviva as:
“We’re in a great place! We were just in New York…and we stayed at her place. We get along really well. We email and text back and forth a lot. And I get along with her children too!”
