I was just reading one of Bob Lefsetz’s illuminating letters today titled “Modern Life” and in it he talks about how we, as a nation, can’t agree on a song of this year’s summer because there is so much chatter in the world, from television to movies to music singles that are here today and gone tomorrow. This has to be the first year where there isn’t a definitive song of the summer. I start my day with “Boom Clap”, then I turn “Fancy” up real loud, and move right on to “Problem”. All great tunes, but I can’t pit any of them as 2014 #1 summer jams because they are all certifiably gold.
Then there comes a reality TV moment that is so nutty, so jaw-dropping, and so WTF that trying to figure out this year’s summer song is a waste of time. There is no summer song of 2014, thanks to Aviva Drescher.
I don’t watch any of the RHO… series, BUT THIS CLIP RIGHT HERE is enough to make me want to watch this episode. I don’t have to know who is who or what has happened before this moment. Season finale or not, this is pure gold. I guess that in order for this woman to show she isn’t playing around with her haters (who thought Aviva was faking her asthma [!!!!!!]), she had to take off her prosthetic leg and throw it on the ground!
