Cast Of RHOC: All 6 Housewives Ranked From Worst To Best

  
Slide 1 of 3 | View On One Page

The Real Housewives of Orange County is the show that started it all! First airing back in 2006, RHOC paved the way for the entire Real Housewives franchise. With 11 seasons and counting, the show has seen a lot of women come and go throughout the various seasons and only one cast member remains from the original season, the rest have joined along the way. Regardless of the revolving door of cast members, fans will continue to side with their favorites each season and a few of the women on the show have been around long enough to develop a loyal fan following — some more than others. Here’s a look at our ranking of all the housewives on The Real Housewives of Orange County from worst to best!

6. Kelly Dodd

She’s the newest member of The Real Housewives of Orange County, so by default she lands in the last spot on this list. It’s not necessarily because she’s done anything wrong, but rather because we don’t have much to go off in terms of ranking her. The 11th season has only begun and she’s made a good impression so far. We do know she likes to be the life of the party and she’s quite loud…so she’ll fit right in with the other women! Our background research tells us she’s married to an older man who she briefly separated from but they have recently reconciled; the two share a 9-year-old daughter and she owns a house on the beach where she lives with her family. Kelly joined the group as a friend of Meghan, who’s also fairly new to the show, but spoilers tell us she’ll become close friends with Vicki Gunvalson. We aren’t sure what to expect this season from Dodd, but we’re pretty sure she’ll be a fiery addition to the show!

5. Vicki Gunvalson

Vicki Gunvalson calls herself the OG of the O.C. because she’s the only cast member to have been around since the first season and due to the fact that RHOC was the first show within the entire franchise, she literally is the first housewife! Fans who’ve been watching the show for the past 10 and counting seasons have gotten to know Vicki Gunvalson and she’s an acquired taste. She is a popular housewife because she’s been around so long and she definitely knows how to have fun (or should we say whoop it up!), but she is constantly finding herself at odds with the other women on the show. One thing is for sure, Vicki has a hard time admitting she’s wrong. She can be extremely judgmental, condescending and opinionated. She’d probably find herself a bit higher up on our list, but last season she got involved in a pretty ugly mess of things when her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers faked medical records to prove he had cancer. A lot of people speculate he’s lying about having cancer entirely, and Vicki stood by his side through it all knowingly lying for him. This didn’t set well with fans, and she’s got a lot of making up to do, but there’s one thing we know about Vicki, she’ll always come out on top!
