Real Housewives of New York's Heather Thomson is 'Jewish by Injection'
We're not proud of this, but yes, we're about to quickly recap the Real Housewives of New York's first episode only because of a slightly repulsive comment made by new cast member Heather Thomson.

Season 5 of the RHNY premiered with two new cast members, trying to shake up the boredom that has become this franchise. One of them, Aviva Drescher, is Jewish. The other, Heather Thomson technically isn't, but according to her she is "Jewish by injection."

The "lucky" benefactor is real estate tycoon Harry Dubin, who was actually married to Drescher. Apparently he's "injected" half the cast, converting more Jews than a Rabbi.

So that's it. Hopefully this will be the last time you read "Real Housewives" on SL. Now back to reality.
