The Real Housewives franchise has had a LOT of housewives throughout the years.
Some of them have made for great TV. Others, not so much.
But some of them have proven to be downright awful, doing some wild things in the name of creating drama and securing a contract renewal.
These 13 Real Housewives are simly the WORST.
Phaedra Parks - The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Phaedra was given the chop when she told Porsha Williams that Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker wanted to drug Porsha and have sex with her. It was one of the wildest scandals to rock the series -- and the franchise. Phaedra recently opened up about being open to returning to the show. Yeah, don't hold your breath.
Danielle Staub - The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Staub was part of the show early in its run and immediately felt the ire of her fellow housewives for her actions. Nowadays, she's returned to the show and is doing whatever she can to get a promotion from the "friend" role. For some reason, she thinks that hurling insults and getting into relationships is the way to do that.
Vicki Gunvalson - The Real Housewives of Orange County
Viewers were DONE with Vicki by the time Bravo execs finally demoted her. She was hateful and seemed ecstatic at the prospect of causing some drama -- even if that means throwing her friends under the bus.
Brandi Glanville - The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
If Brandi Glanville has a problem with you ... she'll take to social media and flood your inbox with expletives. She clearly doesn't understand that in order to be a part of the show, you need to cause the drama in person -- not three sheets to the wind while acting like a keyboard warrior.
Teresa Giudice - The Real Housewives of New Jersey
If you mess with Teresa, there's a good chance she's going to flip a table. She is probably one of the most memorable housewives ever thanks to the iconic scene from early in the show's run. However, Teresa has been portrayed as a toxic individual on-camera.
Kelly Dodd - The Real Housewives of Orange County
Kelly has to have the last word in any argument. It's tiring, and she never seems to learn from her mistakes. It's sad, really.
Ramona Singer - The Real Housewives of New York
Aside from a one-liner here and there, Ramona could essentially be a sound bite. It's a shame her comments are always taking her cast members down, or just being rude.
Jennifer Aydin - The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Aydin is superficial, materialistic, and not very nice. Throughout her first season on the series, she mentioned how many rooms her house has. That was ... weird.
Alexis Bellino - The Real Housewives of Orange County
All Alexis seemed to care about during her stint on the series was getting one over on her fellow housewives. Then, when anyone complained, she would wail like a child until they stopped it.
Aviva Drescher - The Real Housewives of New York
Aviva loved the camera -- maybe a little too much! There were so many moments during her short time on the series that it was obvious she was playing up just to shock viewers. It was ... tiring.
Tamra Judge - The Real Housewives of Orange County
Tamra is a bit of a wild card. She acts like a genuine friend one minute, and then stirs the pot by spreading gossip, and making up rumors. She's the WORST type of friend.
Kenya Moore - The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Kenya loves to gather information about everyone, but flat out refuses to reveal anything about herself. That's why she was fired at one point.
Gretchen Rossi - The Real Housewives of Orange County
Gretchen found herself embroiled in many fights during her turn on RHOC, and most of them were thanks to her knack for bickering with people over silly things. But she always had her love interest, Slade Smiley, along for the ride as if he was her bodyguard.
