Like gasoline to a car, The Real Housewives franchise runs on a full tank of drama, accusations, expensive shoes and a touch of delusion.
So much so that Bravo not only hopes but relies on the wacky antics of each show's relentless villain to be the ammunition to keep the hour-long episode afloat. In fact, it's actually tough to think where the Real Housewives would be today without New Jersey's Teresa Giudice and her table flipping outbursts, DC's Michaele Salahi's shamless White House party crashing or NYC's Kelly Bensimon's Scary Island meltdown.
Check out why we chose Teresa, Michaele, New Jersey's Danielle Staub, Beverly Hills' Camille Grammer, NYC's Kelly and Orange County's Alexis Bellino as the requisite oil to the housewife water.
Alexis Bellino's crude character sketch on Orange County is that of a highly religious, doting mother and devoted housewife to hubby Jim Bellino. A peek beneath the surface, however, provides a darker portrait. During the most recent OC reunion, cast members accused their co-star of being phony, overly rude to the crew, and sited a slew of Orange County store clerks who complain of Alexis' diva behavior. Co-star Tamra Barney may have said it best: “You’re psychotic, JESUS JUGS!”
