Many reality stars have fought across the Bravo franchise's many shows for one reason or another, from Bethenny Frankel to Lisa Vanderpump, Teresa Giudice, and more. Bravoholics can soon see Housewives Dolores Catania and Caroline Manzo settle their mysterious feud on the new competition series Celebrity Beef, which premieres August 2 on E!.
Hosted by Joel McHale, celebs—including Bachelor Nation's Ben Higgins and Nick Viall; Total Bellas' Nikki and Brie Bella; and E!'s Justin Sylvester and Loni Love—will battle it out in a cook-off to win $10,000 for the charity of their choice and take home the Celebrity Beef trophy.
Also competing this season is The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Cynthia Bailey, who will face off against her Celebrity Big Brother opponent Todd Bridges. Before Bravo fans catch Dolores, Caroline, and Cynthia squash their beef on the cooking competition show, we're revisiting some of the most iconic Real Housewives feuds of all time.
The Biggest Fight Between Kyle And Lisa In Real Housewives
Despite making it through several rough patches, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump's friendship took a turn for the worse after "Puppygate" on season nine of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The drama started after Dorit Kemsley discovered the new home she found for her dog—which she adopted from Lisa's Vanderpump Dogs—was actually a kill shelter. After accusing Lisa of leaking the story to the press, Kyle confronted her about it and the two erupted into one of their biggest fights ever. Lisa's husband Ken Todd kicked Kyle out, and the two have been on bad terms since.
Quarrel Between Bethenny And Jill
Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin's friendship broke apart and was put back together all because of Jill's late husband Bobby Zarin. During season three of RHONY, Jill claimed that her friend wasn't supportive enough during Bobby's ongoing battle with cancer, while Bethenny believed her co-star was simply jealous of her business success with her lifestyle brand SkinnyGirl. Their fight ultimately led to a years-long feud between the two and one of the most heart-wrenching BFF breakups in Housewives history. After Bobby's passing in 2018, the frenemies reconciled at his funeral during RHONY season nine. Showing more friendship progress, the pair each shared a selfie they took together on a shared flight on Instagram in June 2022.
Teresa Giudice vs. Caroline Manzo
Despite having no evidence, Real Housewives of New Jersey O.G. Teresa Giudice has long accused former co-star Caroline Manzo of calling the IRS on her and ex-husband Joe Giudice, resulting in their respective prison sentences (15 and 41 months) for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud. Their relationship turned even more sour when Caroline became estranged from her sister and former RHONJ star Dina Manzo, who remained a best friend and ally to Teresa for years later (Dina and Caroline still don't speak to this day and have never revealed the cause of their falling out).
Kenya vs. Porsha
The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams started on the wrong foot in season five, as the latter mistakenly referred to Kenya as Miss America rather than her actual title as a former Miss USA. The pair's petty drama eventually came to a head at the season six reunion, during which Kenya accused Porsha of cheating on her ex-husband Kordell Stewart. The women then burst into an intense fight, with Porsha yanking Kenya to the ground by her hair. The two briefly reconciled during RHOA season 12 after each giving birth to their daughters. However, their old feelings reignited, as Porsha later called Kenya a "fake friend" during the season's reunion episode.
Nene vs. Kim Zolciak
NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann were close friends before starring on RHOA. But like many reality stars, their friendship took a turn for the worse on TV. During the show's first season, NeNe made it known that she wasn't a fan of Kim's relationship with her married boyfriend Lee "Big Poppa" Najjar. When discussing him during the season one reunion, NeNe infamously told her frenemy, "Close your legs to married men," and the two have remained on bad terms since.
Kyle Richards vs. Kim Richards
Sisterly love aside, Kyle and Kim Richards' relationship took a turn for the worse during the season one finale of RHOBH. During their now-infamous limo fight, Kim confronted her sister after she and husband Mauricio Umansky purchased her share of their late mother's home, saying, "You stole my goddamn house." On top of that, Kyle outed her sister's struggles with alcohol during the altercation. The fight didn't ruin their relationship, but the two still shared their fair share of fights over the years. Kim officially parted ways with the series after season seven, but later returned for some cameos during season 10.
