'Real Housewife' Aviva Drescher throws prosthetic limb at co-stars

After the sixth season finale of "The Real Housewives of New York City" airs on July 22, we can all say that we've officially seen everything there is to see on a reality television show.

Headlines are buzzing after a commercial for the final episode features a scene that is absolutely jaw-dropping.

The clip captures a heated fight at Le Cirque in Midtown Manhattan where cast member Aviva Drescher says, "The only thing artificial, or fake about me is this," and with that, she clenches her teeth and slams her prosthetic leg onto the dinner table. 

Drescher than shockingly launches the prosthetic across the room at her co-stars on the opposite side of the table. The camera pans to a bizarre close up of the leg lying on the carpet with her high heel still attached.

Page Six reports that a show source says, “It’s something that definitely has not been seen on TV before.”

Watch above as Drescher explains to former "Real Housewives of New York City" cast member, Bethenny Frankel how she lost her leg . That conversation took place on Frankel's talk show, "Bethenny." Drescher has also published a book, "Leggy Blonde," which likewise describes her accident as a child.
