All "Real Housewives" shows are known for their blowups and confrontations, but Aviva Drescher took things to a whole new level, throwing her prosthetic leg on the table during dinner after an argument with other housewives of New York.

Drescher, 43, literally took off her leg, slammed it on the table, then threw it in the middle of a cocktail party hosted by Sonja Morgan.

"I got really annoyed," she told "Access Hollywood" of the incident. "Just don't piss off the Aviva. I was being attacked by three shrews at a cocktail party. ... Some people throw down their glasses and I just threw down my leg!"

Drescher took her leg off in response to other women -- Carole Radziwill, Kristen Taekman and Heather Thomson -- calling her fake.

"The only thing that is artificial or fake about me is this," she said at the time, right before throwing her leg.

Yesterday on "Access," she described what they were calling her out for that got her so heated.

"They were coming after me about the truth of my asthma," she said. "They were saying I was faking it. I would never lie, I would never fake something like that. After a while, I got sick of it and I had to make a point."

Drescher lost her leg when she was 6 years old. She was playing on a conveyor belt on a farm and her leg got caught.
