The cast members on Bravo’s Real Housewives series tend to be among the more wealthy and privileged people in America. One of the reasons the show is so successful is because it offers a window into their lavish lifestyles (and the drama, of course). A lot of the time, extreme wealth and privilege at these levels can have a negative affect on a person’s personality — it’s definitely hard to stay modest and humble with millions in the bank. Most of the women on the show love to flash around their wealth with fancy cars, sprawling mansions, designer clothes and lots of diamonds. But there are a few women in the group who stand out against their peers not because of their money, but because they are the most down to earth, real women who remain humble despite their wealth. We applaud them for that! This list takes a look at Bravo’s 7 realest real housewives:
7. Bethenny Frankel
Bethenny Frankel is a fan favorite, not just because she’s absolutely hilarious with her witty one liners and sarcastic comments, but because she remains true to herself. The Bethenny we all met at the beginning of the series, who was struggling to get her brand up and running, is the same one we see now running her Skinny Girl empire. We love her ability to laugh at herself and not take things so seriously. Despite the fact that she doesn’t always get along with all the women on the show, probably because she tends to be harshly opinionated, she’s definitely one the other women gravitate towards for friendship, or just a good time. Unlike the other women, she doesn’t participate in catty gossip. It seems she’s usually too busy working for that, and she’s definitely not fake, Bethenny isn’t afraid to speak her mind. She’s among the wealthiest women on the entire franchise, and to top it all off she can take full credit for her finances! This self-made millionaire is one of the realest housewives on Bravo.
