Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise is no stranger to drama — but sometimes the ladies take things a little too far. From Bethenny Frankel’s fight with Carole Radziwill to NeNe Leakes’ blowout with Kim Zolciak, here is a quick look at all of the Real Housewives fights that almost sunk the franchise.
One of the biggest mysteries surrounding the new season of the Real Housewives of New York is Bethenny Frankel’s feud with bestie Carole Radziwill. The RHONY stars have been good friends for the past few seasons, but they had a huge falling out while filming Season 10.

We don’t know why they are fighting, but it had to be an epic fight to pull these two apart. When talking about the feud, Radziwill slammed Frankel for doing things that “weren’t completely consistent with the girl I knew,” but she didn’t reveal anything else about what went down.
Speaking of mysteries, we still don’t know why Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Dina Manzo and Caroline Manzo stopped talking to each other. Dina departed from the series in the middle of the 2nd season and later revealed that she left because she needed to focus more on her charity work.
The sisters eventually made up but started fighting again in 2016. Dina recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live and revealed that she and Caroline don’t talk. We don’t know what happened, but Dina assured Andy Cohen that the feud isn’t her fault.
A list of the craziest Real Housewives fights would be a shame without mentioning NeNe Leakes’ infamous feud with Kim Zolciak. The ladies have had some famous blow-ups on the Real Housewives of Atlanta over the years, and some of the drama has threatened the future of the show.
I am so sorry for what has happened @neneleakes We both know the truth, we both know that if I wanted to, I could have a law suit for the lies you have spewed, tweeting out fake texts, implying I am racist, attacking me physically, claiming my daughter tweeted negative about you and your home, we both know these are lies. I have reacted to it publicly and for that I am sorry. I should have risen above it I personally will no longer engage with you on social media and perpetuate the hate. I am asking you to do the same. We are grown women with families. Enough is enough. I want us to move on If you continue this, it will be because you are attempting to stay on the show and stay relevant and that’s on you.
For example, many fans thought Leakes crossed the line when she attacked Zolciak’s daughter for sharing an embarrassing video of her new home on social media. Despite all the bad blood, Zolciak recently reached out to Leakes on social media and offered an apology for everything that has happened.
When it comes to crossing lines, Porsha Williams’ brawl with Kenya Moore during the Season 6 reunion of RHOA might take the cake. The ladies shouting match on set turned physical after Moore pulled Williams to the ground by her hair. The cops were eventually called in and Moore was slapped with assault charges.
Although the franchise has seen a lot of drama over the years, fans can rest assured that there will be plenty more to come.
With Season 10 of the Real Housewives of New York just getting underway, we’re fairly confident that we’ll see a few fights unfold in the immediate future.
