This year, the “Real Housewives” franchises have brought Bravo viewers an abundance of nasty fights and vicious lies from groups of wealthy women living in posh mansions with manicured lawns.

Although we have closed the door on 2018, there’s no harm in taking a look back at some of the wildest catfights from the reality series. Whether you live for the taglines that come from watching “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” or prefer the calculated attacks from the cast of “Real Housewives of New York City,” check out some of the craziest “Real Housewives” moments of the year.

5. Teresa Giudice Reignites Feud With Melissa Gorga

During a gathering, Teresa and a few other cast members assumed Melissa was the reason Joe went on a trip during the anniversary of his mother’s death. However, Melissa lashed out at the accusation and noted Teresa only has spare time on her hands because her husband is in jail. The two, who squashed their issues from “Real Housewives of New Jersey” Season 7, quickly reignited their feud in Season 8.

4. “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Cast Changes

During the “RHOA” Season 10 reunion, there were several arguments and even a rant about racism. After all of the drama took place, there was just too much tension to continue on with the same cast members. After years of appearing on the popular Bravo series, it was revealed that Kim Zolciak, Kenya Moore and Shereé Whitfield would not return for Season 11 of the reality series.

3. Who’s The Star Of “The Real Housewives of Dallas?”

During the “RHOD” Season 3 reunion, LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra Simmons got into a heated argument over who’s the real star of the Bravo series. While D’Andra believed there wouldn’t be a show without her, LeeAnne made a point to explain that every storyline leads back to her, in other words, she’s the real star.

2. Shannon Beador’s “Straight Jacket Intervention”

During the “The Real Housewives of Orange County” Season 13 cast trip to Jamaica, Shannon pretty much lost her patience when cast members Tamra Judge, Kelly Dodd, Vicki Gunvalson, Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter confronted her about her bad attitude amid her divorce. During the conversation, the ladies revealed they thought Shannon seemed depressed and turned to alcohol too often. Shannon then accused her co-stars of giving her a “straight jacket intervention.”

After she demanded the production crew stop filming her, she took a moment to gather herself together and returned to verbally attack the group following their accusations. After the fallout, Shannon wasn’t up for participating in any vacation excursions that involved her cast members.

1. The End Of Bethenny Frankel And Carole Radziwill’s Friendship

Bethenny and Carole were the best of friends until life got in the way and tore them apart. “RHONY” Season 10 documented the fall out between the two women, who grew apart due to their commitments outside of their friendship. During the reunion, the two went back and forth hurling insults until Bethenny got up and began to scream in Carole’s face. Carole announced she was leaving the show weeks ahead of the season finale.
