Viewers have seen a lot go down on the Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise, but none have been more dramatic and emotional than the relationships between the housewives and their husbands. Bringing a relationship onto reality television for the world to see can be a hard task and not many survive as a result. More than 20 housewives have fallen victim to the Housewives divorce curse after going on the show and the number continues to climb, with the most recent split between Yolanda and David Foster. This list takes a look back at some of the worst divorces that went down in housewives history — some of these get down right ugly! Here’s the top 8 nastiest divorces:
8. Vicki Gunvalson and Donn Gunvalson
Vicki was married to Donn from 1994 to 2010, but the divorce wasn’t finalized until a few years ago. Their marriage aired during the first few seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County and the two had a lot of cringe worthy moments on camera. Their divorce got ugly when it came to deciding a settlement because Donn demanded Vicki pay spousal support. Vicki has admitted on the show that she lost a lot money because of Donn’s demands and was ordered in the end to pay him support.
