The Real Housewives of New York City is one of the most popular shows within Bravo’s Real Housewives reality franchise. The series premiered back in 2008 shortly after the first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County aired, and it’s been a huge hit ever since. One of the best things about RHONY is that many of the original housewives are still on the show today! Despite a few women coming and going each season, the majority of the cast has a long history with one another. As a result, fans have been given the chance to get to know these women quite well and see their dynamic friendships either dissolve or evolve over time. Since season 9 is about to air, here’s a ranking of the season 8 ranked worst to best:
7. Luann De Lesseps
Luann lands herself as the worst housewife on the show because more often than not she’s embroiled in a feud with one of the other ladies, whether it’s Ramona, Bethenny or Carole, it’s just never ending with her! She tends to make the other women on the show mad because of her condescending attitude which has been an on-going problem since she joined the show back in 2008 as the Countess. Luann used her title to reign over the other women, always dishing out lessons in either etiquette or class. She even wrote a book back in 2009 called “Class with the Countess: How to Live with Elegance and Flair.” We must admit, she’s gotten a lot better, but she still has the tendency to be bossy and she’s a bit of a hypocrite! She relentlessly picked on Carole for dating a younger man while Luann herself admits to sleeping around and she has been accused of using her friendships with some of the other women, mainly Bethenny, to further her own agenda. All in all, we’ve seen a big difference in Luann, especially since she met her new fiancé, Tom, but she’s still got a long way to go with some of the other women on the show!
