Aviva Drescher is back on for the sixth season of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New York City," a Bravo insider confirmed to TheWrap.

The housewife, who held the production hostage along with her cast mates for bigger paychecks earlier this month, broke the news on Twitter.

Masochist, indeed. After Drescher and the other housewives failed to get raises from the network and she missed their deadline to finalize their agreements, the network resumed production with only four returning housewives: Ramona Singer, Heather Thompson, Carole Radziwill and Sonja Morgan.

A former New York cast member recently told TheWrap that Bravo was "holding out" on Drescher and LuAnn de Lesseps for missing their deadline.

This is, of course, the second time Drescher has agreed to come back to the show after previously accepting her offer in principle than going back on her word earlier.

That leaves de Lesseps still on the outs.
