11 Real Housewives Shows Ranked From Worst to Best
Bravo’s reality franchise known as the Real Housewives has become a pop culture phenomenon. The series started over a decade ago back in 2006 with the first version, The Real Housewives of Orange County. Ever since then the series has continuously grown into a franchise with several different shows based in various cities across the U.S., like Dallas, New York City, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, New Jersey, Potomac and Miami, into Canada and even overseas in Australia and Bangkok. As a tribute to its immense success, here’s a look at 11 of the most popular Real Housewives shows ever (both on and off the air) ranked from worst to best!
11. The Real Housewives of Vancouver
The Real Housewives of Vancouver was the first Canadian installment of the Real Housewives franchise. Unfortunately, it didn’t take off like the producers expected. The show only lasted for two seasons, mainly because the women cast on the show weren’t particularly liked by their audience. In fact, their chemistry together was downright awful! The bickering was non-stop and is most likely what ruined the show. Although the first season was actually fairly successful, as the show moved into the second season, the ratings dropped dramatically. It has never been officially cancelled by the network, but is still on hiatus. We’re not surprised that none of these ladies are still friends. In fact some of the cast members are still tangled up in lawsuits for defamation and libel.
10. The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C.
The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. was over before it really got started! It’s now recognized as the most controversial show in the franchise after cast member, Michaele Salahi, became notorious for crashing a White House state dinner in 2009 with no invitation — and Bravo caught some flack because the whole charade was featured on the show! Her ability to sneak into the White House without an official invitation ruffled a lot of feathers. It also didn’t help that the first and only season was considered pretty boring. In fact, the majority of drama happened after the series was cancelled! It was also the first time in the franchises history that a show had been cancelled. The show was brought back in 2015, but in the area of Potomac with all new cast members.
