EXCLUSIVE: 'Real Housewives' star Aviva Drescher's dad George Teichner marries Dana Lavette Cody in an intimate ceremony on the beach in Malibu

As we reported earlier this week, Aviva Drescher’s dad is officially off the market! George Teichner secretly married his 25-year-old girlfriend, Dana Lavette Cody on August 3. The pair tied the knot in a secret Malibu wedding, which was not attended by Aviva and her family.

Cody took to her Twitter to explain her stepdaughter’s absence:

“we DID NOT TELL ANYONE!!!” she wrote. “Neither family members were aware!! My #HUSBAND & myself only allowed the world to view our love via #RHONY @bravotv so that the public can understand that #truelove & #soulmates exist despite ageism, & cultural differences!! We are truly not into “showbiz” -only into each other… Certain moments in life are #priceless!!!!!”

Aviva opened up to Us Weekly about the happy news—and there are no hard feelings she wasn’t by her father’s side. “I am so happy for my father and Cody!” she said. “They did get married! They eloped!”

In past interviews, Cody has described her relationship with Aviva as:

“We’re in a great place! We were just in New York…and we stayed at her place. We get along really well. We email and text back and forth a lot. And I get along with her children too!”

    Does that mean that Bravo filmed it?

    • I think it was filmed for their spin-off and they got married suddenly due to production schedules.

    I don’t believe Aviva’s excuse at all. my ‘unnamed source’ close to the show told me the real reason was that George was so ashamed and embarrassed by Aviva’s behavior on this season of #RHONY, he didn’t want her at his wedding.

    • Hey Michael. George has a bottom for embarrassment? I thought there was no end to what could embarrass that man.

      • Michael

        Ironic, isn’t it 🙂

    • Jennymckitty

      Coming from George, I can only imagine him thinking she wasn’t disgusting enough.

      • Yes! Hee hee hee HILARIOUS! 🙂

      • Tee tee

        Word on the street is that she Aviva didn’t want them to get married because Cody iOS from the”Ghetto” Holla!

  • Jennymckitty

    So glad that they privately eloped with a camera crew.

      Yeah, such an anonymous excursion.
      Now that George is one smooth operator, huh.

    • cait

      I should have eloped without the cameras AND the groom ! NOW that would have made a story !

  • cait

    Wow ! thank God this man had scroooppplles ! Another day and you all said it wouldn’t LAST ! Fools, Marriage madi in Bravo Heaven !

    • Lorn

      Dead. LMFAO!

      • italiano bambino

        George comes out as a horny dog

        • Lorn

          I wonder if Miss America was in attendance?

    • Birdie11

      The chandeliers were big mirrors.

      • Good Lawd! And the reception was held at the strip club.

    • Bwahahaha! Oh Snap!!!!!!

      • italiano bambino

        Lol you never know with little george 😉

        • I’m sure he is little. Hahaha!!!

  • TartLemon

    BS! I don’t buy any of this ‘explanation’ for a second. If it was true, Aviva would have made a PR statement. Haven’t heard a single word from that POS, have we?

  • itsjustme

    My guess is Aviva’s emphysema was acting up, her hubby couldn’t fly with her, and her leg cracked from tossing it on the finale of the show. THAT is why she was unable to attend the wedding of the year… I mean astma..,.:)

  • RonnieIsBack

    Good for them….
    oh but the shade of if all…Cody describes why her step daughter…lololol….

  • Norrth

    Wow, I have a lot of respect for Cody for not wanting cameras and press dog her wedding – I wish her happiness, even if it is with George, LOL!
