You've seen the table-flip, the weave-snatch and the wine-throw. Now it's time for the artificial leg toss. You can thank The Real Housewives of New York City cast member Aviva Drescher for this new reality TV water cooler moment.

Aviva's leg-throwing incident—#LegGate?—happens in the season finale of Real Housewives of New York following an argument with Heather Thomson.

"The only thing artificial or fake about me…IS THIS! I am sick of it!" Aviva shouts and slams her artificial leg onto the table, surrounded by cast members including Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps. Sonja tried to keep Aviva calm, but the leg came off.

Viewers will recall Aviva lost her leg in a childhood accident. The reality star and author has largely been absent from this season—aside from a very heated fight with Carole Radziwill in the beginning of the season over ghost writer allegations—as the ladies headed to the Berkshires and vacationed in Montana during the summer. On those occasions she was removed from the opening credits.

It's safe to say the leg-throw will remind viewers Aviva is still here. Something tells us we'll need to update the Real Housewives fight rankings...

The drama continues on a three-part reunion kicking off on Tuesday, July 29. Get a sneak peek below.

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays, 9 p.m. on Bravo.

(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
