Fans of Bravo’s Real Housewives love watching the veteran cast members from each of their favorite shows in the franchise. Many of these women have been around for multiple seasons and during that time have opened their lives up to viewers, which includes their on-going relationships. In some cases the men play a large role on the show, so we’ve been able to get to know them as a couple. There are a select few who’ve been around long enough to become fan favorites, so we’ve compiled a list of the most popular Real Housewives couples and recounted all the stories of how they first met!
14. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker
Fans of Real Housewives of Atlanta got to watch this relationship unfold right before their eyes. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker met on the set of RHOA during season 4 when the girls did a trip to South Africa. Tucker was working for production at the time. “I was trying to play it cool in Africa as it’s against the rules to cross the line with the talent,” he said in a Bravo blog back in 2014. “In production that’s a big NO NO!…I loved her smile, she had a great butt! LOL! She seemed very humble and genuine.” It seemed these two just couldn’t fight fate, so Tucker quit his job and they got married in April 2014. “That was a big decision for him to have to make. He resigned, but then they came back and said they didn’t want him to quit,” said Burruss in an interview with Glamour.
13. Jacqueline and Chris Laurita
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband, Chris Laurita, have one of the cutest relationships in the entire franchise. They met while she was modeling at a trade show in Chicago. “My coworker suggested we meet Chris and his brothers out after work they day we met,” she said in an interview with Millennium magazine back in 2014. “Chris’s brother knew my co-worker’s sister. So, she told me they were good guys and said that Chris said he wouldn’t go unless I went. I was intrigued. So I went. At dinner, we talked all night and had an instant connection. As though we knew each other forever. We talked and talked, and exchanged numbers.”
