Bravo’s reality franchise known as the Real Housewives has become a pop culture phenomenon. The series started over a decade ago back in 2006 with the first version, The Real Housewives of Orange County. Ever since then the series has continuously grown into a franchise with several different shows based in various cities across the U.S., like Dallas, New York City, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, New Jersey, Potomac and Miami, into Canada and even overseas in Australia and Bangkok. As a tribute to its immense success, here’s a look at 11 of the most popular Real Housewives shows ever (both on and off the air) ranked from worst to best!
11. The Real Housewives of Vancouver
The Real Housewives of Vancouver was the first Canadian installment of the Real Housewives franchise. Unfortunately, it didn’t take off like the producers expected. The show only lasted for two seasons, mainly because the women cast on the show weren’t particularly liked by their audience. In fact, their chemistry together was downright awful! The bickering was non-stop and is most likely what ruined the show. Although the first season was actually fairly successful, as the show moved into the second season, the ratings dropped dramatically. It has never been officially cancelled by the network, but is still on hiatus. We’re not surprised that none of these ladies are still friends. In fact some of the cast members are still tangled up in lawsuits for defamation and libel.
