Karent Sierra (MIA, Season 2): The fact that we are honoring Karent's name by spelling it the way she insists should be a small victory for the only dentist in America with a publicist. Lisa Wu-Hartwell (ATL, Seasons 1-2): Lisa was easily the most likable of the Atlanta housewives in the first season.
In early May, while the sixth season aired and they grappled with rampant rumors of their real estate demise, Missus Bellino told the peeps at Radar Online that she and the Mister had identified but not yet secured their next “dream home.” She is quoted as saying, “We’re going to be buying it” and described it as “amazing” with “a huge long driveway,” and “one of those houses that I feel I will never grow out of.” During the June (2011) season 6 reunion show for The Real Housewives of Orange County cross-eyed host Andy Cohen asked Missus Bellino about the rumored and much reported foreclosure of her Newport Beach mansion and she was (understandably) adamant about setting the record straight that she and her man did not lose their home to foreclosure but unloaded it as a short sale.
Naturally, we decided to rank them, according to our proprietary and secret formula that prizes bearability, watchability, and how well they've come to define our concept of Real Housewife.
returns to Bravo on Tuesday night, bringing with it the latest episode in the sprawling saga of rich ladies (and their awful husbands and generally harmless children) who like to blow out their petty squabbles to epic proportions. Across multiple seasons and six iterations, sixty-two women have introduced themselves to us with a pithy, incomprehensible introductory line. Peggy Tanous (OC, Season 6): For some reason, Bravo decided they wanted to find other women that Jim Bellino (husband of Alexis) dated.
For that we are grateful, but not grateful enough to take her out of the boring group. Lea Black (MIA, Season 1-present): Gala-organizer Lea likes to think she's the queen bee of Miami.
Say that again slowly, "queen bee of Miami." Now laugh to yourself. Tammy Knickerbocker (OC, Season 2-3): Tammy was the Eeyore of the OC Housewives.
