Andy Cohen, appearing on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday, chatted about Aviva Drescher’s jaw-dropping leg toss on the Real Housewives of New York, and a testy exchange with Ramona Singer viewers will witness during the upcoming second installment of the show’s reunion.
As we previously reported, Drescher made for one of the show’s most unbelievable moments ever, when she threw her prosthetic leg at castmate Heather Thomson during a tense dinner at Le Cirque — an exchange that left Fallon flabbergasted.
“Let’s talk about this, let’s talk about this please. I’m watching Real Housewives of New York, the finale,” the talk show host told Cohen. “Aviva gets angry … really mad, so mad. And she has an artificial leg … and [the other housewives] said something about [her] was fake. And she said, ‘The only thing that’s fake about me … and she slams her leg [on the table,] and then throws it.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing — I can’t un-see that — I’ve never seen someone throw a leg, with the shoe on it and the painted toenails.”
Cohen joked, “The countess (cast member LuAnn de Lesseps) was very upset that the shoe was on the table with the silverware,” Cohen said.

Prodded by Fallon for a scoop regarding the reunion, the Watch What Happens Live host referred to his argument with Ramona Singer.
“Actually, Ramona and I get into it. Usually the interplay is in between the ladies, [but] actually she and I get into it,” Cohen said.
Fallon replied, “People are starting to fight you now? You can’t fight Andy Cohen on Andy Cohen’s show!”
Cohen described the circumstances behind the surprising squabble with the Gotham socialite.
“I was asking her some probing questions and she said, ‘Well, who are you having sex with tonight?’” Cohen recalled. “And I said, ‘When I go on a reality show about my life, I’ll let you know!’”
“Burn!” Fallon said. “You mess with fire, you get burned Ramona!”
Cohen, on the show, plugged his upcoming book The Andy Cohen Diaries, due out Nov. 11.
The second installment of the Real Housewives of New York reunion special airs Tuesday on Bravo at 9/8c.
