Who says housewives are afraid to throw down? Join MsMojo as we count down our picks for "Top 10 Real Housewives Fights."
For this list, we’ve picked the most outrageous fights that happened during filming, so reunion fights like Porsha dragging Kenya by the hair are not eligible. We’re also keeping to fights between the women, so family fights like The Gorgas versus the Giudices at the christening and the Lake George retreat are not eligible; neither are fights like the Pillow Talk Party between Brandon and Apollo that got the whole group fighting.

#10: Nene vs. Claudia 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Sometimes housewives like to step in on fights that don’t even involve them, as was the case with NeNe here. During a chaotic trip to Puerto Rico, Demetria and Phaedra were engaged in a catty back and forth exchange. Claudia did her best to mediate the disagreement when out of nowhere, a disgruntled NeNe stepped in and started firing cheap shots at Claudia. Claudia was able to hold her own against the notorious housewife when NeNe, fresh out of good comebacks, questioned her sex life and said the infamous words, “your clit has left your body.” We’re all still scratching our heads over that one.
#9: Lisa R. vs. Kim 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Every time the housewives go on a trip, there’s drama. This time, the Beverly Hills ladies were visiting Amsterdam to meet Yolanda’s family. It was anything but nice when Kim and Lisa Rinna got into a heated discussion at dinner about Kim’s sobriety. The fight quickly escalates as Kim confronts Lisa for gossiping about her drinking and recovery. Things take a turn for the crazy when Kim threatens Lisa R. about some unsaid rumor about Lisa’s husband, actor Harry Hamlin. The mention of Harry’s name sends Lisa R. into a rage and she slams a wine glass on the table, sending shards Kim’s way.
#8: Sheree vs. Anthony the Party Planner 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'
No one comes for Sheree Whitfield without suffering the consequences. Sheree gets upset since she hasn’t been in contact with the poet who’s been hired to recite a poem about her at her big party. She then confronts Anthony, her party planner, about not doing his job well. Anthony fires back at Sheree that she has unrealistic expectations, which does not sit well with her. Sheree fires back one of the most iconic Housewives catchphrases, “Who gon’ check me, boo?” No one Sheree, no one.
#7: Adriana vs. Joanna 'The Real Housewives of Miami'
You’d be wrong if you thought the short-lived Miami season wasn’t packed with drama. This fight starts when Adriana is being catty towards Karent at a lingerie party. A tipsy Joanna is on the sidelines of the fight when she decides to defend Karent. Not wanting to get into it, Adriana tries to leave, but Joanna follows her. Bad move on Joanna’s part, since Adriana turns around and sucker punches her right in the face! In Adriana’s defense, Joanna did grab at her hair, but no one was expecting a boxing match.
#6: Kyle & Kim vs. Brandi 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Housewife fights seem to escalate from zero to 100 real quick, and this one is no exception. During a supposedly friendly game of charades, Kyle makes a dumb blonde joke about Brandi. The sisters and Brandi have never gotten along, and earlier that night, they stole one of Brandi’s crutches. Not willing to let things go, Brandi calls Kyle a bitch. Kyle, backed by Kim, proceeds to trade insults with Brandi, who then makes the accusation that Kim’s been doing crystal meth in the bathroom the whole night. Add in the sisters’ slut-shaming of Brandi, and we have one of the most ridiculous fights ever.
#5: Aviva vs. Sonja & Ramona 'The Real Housewives of New York'
One major rule of any Housewives show is that girls’ trips are sacred. When a ladies’ trip to St. Barts was planned, Aviva, who is deathly afraid of flying, has her husband accompany her on the trip. Bringing a husband along is the ultimate no-no, and Ramona and Sonja take it upon themselves to educate Aviva about her faux pas. Instead of seeing each other’s side, their discussion turned nasty and Aviva calls the other two women “white trash.” Not the best thing to call multi-millionaire housewives, or anyone for that matter, but she did, and pretty much isolated herself from the whole group.
#4: Kyle vs. Camille 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Kyle and Camille had a rocky relationship throughout the season. At one point, Kyle called Camille a liar during a trip to New York over Camille’s rumored accusation that Kyle said no one would be interested in watching her without her actor husband, Kelsey Grammer. The bizarre culmination of their drama came at Camille’s party with psychic, Allison DuBois, the real life inspiration for the show, Medium. As she drank and smoked an e-cigarette, the psychic told Kyle her marriage was on the rocks and that her husband “would never emotionally fulfill” her. Ouch! Camille sat on the sideline, pretending not to secretly love all the drama.
#3: Teresa vs. Danielle 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'
Rule one of New Jersey: Don’t ever ignore Teresa. At a country club event, Danielle proceeds to walk past Teresa, which, of course, upsets her. Danielle bristles when Teresa calls her “honey,” which cues Teresa to ask if she prefers the name bitch instead. Things take off from there and Danielle accuses Teresa of having a home in foreclosure. Chaos erupts as Danielle runs away and Teresa, along with a mob of people, chases her through the building. The piece de resistance is when, out of nowhere, Ashlee, Jacqueline’s daughter, takes her shot at Danielle and pulls out a fistful of her hair.
#2: Kim vs. Kyle 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Originally, the Richards sisters seemed like a pretty solid duo. But at the end of the first season, things took a turn for the uncomfortable as the two sisters battled in a limo. Most of the fight is hard to follow since an intoxicated Kim seems to come after Kyle out of nowhere. Kyle doesn’t back down and calls out Kim for her inappropriate behavior at Taylor’s party. Kim goes for the jugular and accuses Kyle of stealing their deceased mother’s home for herself. But the real trump card is when Kyle calls Kim an alcoholic, and vows to never give her financial assistance again.
Before we unveil our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Sheree vs. Kim The Real Housewives of Atlanta
- Tamra vs. Jeana The Real Housewives of Orange County
- Sheree vs. Marlo The Real Housewives of Atlanta
- Bethenny vs. Kelly The Real Housewives of New York
- Aviva vs. Everyone The Real Housewives of New York City
- Nene vs. Sheree The Real Housewives of Atlanta
#1: Teresa vs. Danielle 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'
Perhaps one of the all time best moments in reality TV ever, there was no surprise that Teresa’s infamous table flip would be number one. Like most of the season, Danielle and Teresa were trading insults with each other at a party. Danielle told Teresa to “pay attention,” which got Teresa’s blood boiling to heights of unprecedented rage. She called Danielle a “prostitution whore” and accused her of being engaged 19 times, all while flipping over the dinner table. The moment was unexpected, over-the-top, and pretty much everything you could ever want in a Housewives fight.
