Within the 15 years because the Actual Housewives franchise started, Bravo has honed the artwork of the reality-TV reunion. The community’s gatherings have been as soon as smaller and fewer glitzy affairs. However now they’re high-budget, multi-episode productions with themed units, outfit temper boards, and glam squads circling the stage. And it’s not simply concerning the Actual Housewives: Bravo has a year-round calendar filled with totally different reunion exhibits, from Summer season Home and Southern Attraction to Under Deck and Vanderpump Guidelines. The newest Actual Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion drops this week, and followers will lastly get to look at Lisa Rinna and Kathy Hilton meet face-to-face after months of feuding on social media. Jamie Lee Curtis will even be there! The anticipated three-part occasion (sure, Bravo reunions can’t be completed in a single measly hour anymore; Andy Cohen wants a limited-series run to get via all of the drama that unfolded on and off the exhibits) will play right into a now-classic Bravo reunion subgenre filled with over-the-top robes, literal receipts, and simply possibly some battle decision.
The attraction of a reunion is clear: It’s an “Avengers, assemble!” second for followers who think about actuality stars their heroes battling it out for survival and supremacy. Within the early years, when actuality TV’s fourth wall was far more inflexible, Bravo’s reunions have been a uncommon place to “Point out all of it!” and discuss all of the behind-the-scenes particulars of filming. The formulation has made for fascinating actuality TV through the years. At RHOBH reunions alone, we’ve seen the ladies grapple with dying, household dramas, dependancy, divorce, affairs, (allegedly) leaked tabloid tales and, extra just lately, multimillion-dollar fraud allegations.
Making slick reality-TV reunions which might be truly entertaining is tougher than Bravo usually makes it look — apart from RHONY’s season-13 reunion, which didn’t even find yourself occurring. On the worldwide Actual Housewives exhibits, there’s a noticeable distinction in high quality: unhealthy refereeing, primary questions, and the lingering feeling that the members are simply going via the motions (excluding Dubai, these will not be produced by Bravo and aren’t hosted by Cohen). And different exhibits which have tried to leap on the reunion bandwagon, like Netflix’s Love Is Blind and Promoting Sundown, or Love Island and Married at First Sight, by no means fairly pull them off. Typically, they’re creaky and underwhelming (the entire solid doesn’t at all times present up!). And as a substitute of epic takedowns, surprising allegations, unintentionally humorous feedback, and, at instances, even an unintentional nap, the opposite networks have barely mustered one memeable second.
Bravo’s Actual Housewives reunions have advanced right into a flagship of the community’s reality-TV output, with dramatic teaser trailers and pregame seating-plan reveals that followers dissect on social media like sports activities fiends analyzing a workforce formation. And naturally, none of this might be doable with out such compelling topics who at all times carry their A recreation to the reunion.
So in an effort to seek out out what makes a Bravo reunion so magical, Vulture determined to interrupt down the community’s most jaw-dropping, scene-stealing, genre-setting reality-TV reunion moments. We’re left questioning how a lot Bravo has spent on these reunions: Is it nearer to Dana’s $25,000 sun shades or a pair of Erika Jayne’s diamond earrings? Truly, it doesn’t matter. These reunion moments are priceless.
Camille Grammer vs. the World — RHOBH season 1
Reunions have blessed followers with so many memeable moments through the years. On the first RHOBH reunion, in 2011, Andy Cohen learn out an inventory of not-so-flattering phrases that had been used to explain Camille Grammer. In her first season, Camille actually didn’t perceive how she was coming throughout. From flirting along with her tennis coach whereas her marriage collapsed to casually studying The Artwork of Battle, internet hosting the Dinner Celebration From Hell (that includes the “morally corrupt” Faye Resnick and the vape-puffing medium Allison DuBois), and introducing followers to phrases like pernicious, Camille polarized the Housewives fandom. Talking of phrases, right here’s that choice of adjectives Andy learn out: “Conniving, passive-aggressive, narcissistic, catty, jealous, merciless, hypocritical, self-absorbed, manipulative, faux, insincere, delusional.”
“That’s my opinion!” — RHOC season 9
Tamra Choose gave us considered one of Housewives’ most memed moments within the ninth season of RHOC. On the reunion, she was locked in battle with Vicki Gunvalson over — you’ve guessed it! — everybody’s favourite (alleged) con artist, Brooks Ayers. Tamra was (appropriately) advising Vicki that, to place it mildly, Brooks didn’t appear to be man. This prompted Vicki to ask, “How are you aware what’s good for me?!” And everyone knows how Tamra responded: “THAT’S MY OPINIONNNNN!” This clip has turn out to be the go-to accompaniment for controversial (and cancelable) pop-culture sizzling takes.
“So nasty, so impolite” — RHOA season 6
NeNe Leakes is among the most memeable Housewives of all time, from her confessionals to her clapbacks. At reunions, NeNe has at all times introduced her A recreation, and when Kenya Moore accused her of being “so nasty, so impolite,” she was not going to take it mendacity down. When Kenya tried to tug her, NeNe repeated “So nasty, so impolite” over her with an expression that indicated she was relishing each second of it. That is a kind of memes that has eclipsed the Bravo fandom; even individuals who don’t watch any Housewives understand it.
NeNe Leakes vs. Kim Zolciak-Biermann — RHOA season one
If there’s one factor NeNe will do, it’s drag individuals on the reunion. And considered one of her most hilarious examples comes from the very first RHOA reunion when she went head-to-head with Kim Zolciak-Biermann. The pair have been bickering about what Kim’s mysterious married lover, “Massive Poppa,” had allegedly stated about NeNe, when NeNe went for the jugular: “Shut your legs to married males!” she repeated, pointing at an open-mouthed Kim. This set the tone for Atlanta’s shady, brutal reunions.
Phaedra Parks comes for Kenya Moore — RHOA season 6
Talking of brutal takedowns from the Atlanta women, there isn’t a reunion rant extra memorable (or an excessive amount of) than Phaedra Parks coming for Kenya Moore. After Kenya explored the potential of utilizing a sperm financial institution to have a baby, Phaedra went for the jugular after which some, saying, “She’s sitting round, working round speaking about my husband, the daddy of my kids, and she or he spends her weekends pedaling via sperm banks, trying via catalogues looking for a donor. Honey, you don’t know in case your child daddy might be an axe assassin or a baby molester as a result of what you’ll know is that he wanted $10 for a medium-size pizza so he ejaculated in a cup so you might have a child. Now examine that.” Yeesh.
Nicki Minaj as a visitor host — RHOP season 6
Mere weeks after inflicting a storm with a string of debunked anti-vaxx tweets that invoked some swollen testicles, Housewives superfan Nicki Minaj turned the primary particular person to guest-host a reunion. RHOP’s sixth-season reunion was a four-parter with Minaj internet hosting one half. Not like Cohen, Minaj didn’t should faux to be neutral. From dragging the eternally messy Ashley Darby for having “no story line” to forcing Candiace Dillard Bassett to sing a cappella, Minaj didn’t maintain again. She additionally ushered in a brand new period of superstar cameos and appearances on the reunions.
Brandi Glanville mocks Lisa Rinna’s hairdo — RHOBH season 5
Season 5 was Brandi Glanville’s last one (for now) as a full-time RHOBH Housewife, and what a season it was: from throwing wine on Eileen Davidson to slapping Lisa Vanderpump and outing Kyle Richards for smoking pot, there was hardly anybody Brandi didn’t piss off. Lisa Rinna vs. Brandi was a very fascinating rivalry. Even all these years on, nobody has burned Lisa fairly in addition to Brandi did at this reunion. When Lisa stated Brandi’s look was “trashy,” she responded, “Pay attention, you’ve had the identical hairdo for 20 years.” The clapback was so iconic that even Lisa’s BFF Eileen applauded it. And a speechless Lisa needed to admit to a guffawing Andy Cohen that, sure, she has had the identical hairdo for 20 years.
Kim Richards returns the Bunny — RHOBH season 7
The rivalry between Lisa Rinna and Kim Richards was, fortunately, one which viewers bought to see much more of. In season seven, Kim gave us one of the crucial notorious reunion moments of all time: the Bunny. After a number of seasons of feuding that featured smashed wine glasses and threatening textual content messages, Lisa tried to make a peace providing by gifting Kim a toy bunny for her first grandchild. Kim initially accepted the present, however after their feud continued, she introduced the Bunny again to the reunion, citing her “superstitions” about its “unhealthy vitality.” Toe-curling doesn’t even come near describing the awkwardness when Lisa ended up crying and leaving the stage — Bunny in tow — adopted by Kim. Since then, the Bunny has made appearances on the WWHL Clubhouse and even BravoCon.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann performs reside — RHOA season two
Kim Zolciak-Biermann threw the primary medium-tier auto-tuned pop track at Stonewall when she launched “Tardy for the Celebration,” the beginning of many Housewives music releases. (She actually walked so Countess Luann may run.) In Atlanta’s second-season reunion, Kim carried out the track for the primary time (with just a little assist from Kandi Burruss, who wrote it). The vocals could also be questionable, however Kim impressed a technology of Housewives to reside out their desires of pop stardom — and for that, we salute her.
Kyle Richards compares Lisa Vanderpump to a chess participant — RHOBH season two
Lisa Vanderpump might need been pushed off the present after allegedly leaking tales to the press, however earlier than that, she was actually a Housewife with 9 lives. Lengthy earlier than LVP’s husband screamed “Goodbye, Kyle!,” she had clocked Lisa’s notoriously slithery methods. Within the second RHOBH reunion, Kyle described being in a friendship with LVP as “like taking part in chess with Bobby Fischer” — a well-known participant, FYI. Why? As a result of “each transfer is calculated.” After all, Lisa responded to those accusations of being manipulative by scheming Kyle’s downfall within the subsequent season. What a method to show her incorrect!
Erika Girardi’s four-part grilling — RHOBH season 11
In its eleventh season, RHOBH was in its true-crime period, with allegations towards Erika Girardi and her estranged husband, Tom, taking heart stage. As she refuted accusations that she had identified about her husband’s alleged multimillion-dollar, decades-long “Ponzi scheme” (because the L.A. Instances described it), Erika bought into some wild confrontations. Sutton Stracke, the present’s self-designated chief investigator, or “Fancy Drew,” was within the firing line. And on the box-office four-part reunion, Erika withstood a troublesome grilling from Andy and the remainder of the group, often shedding her cool and by no means backing down. It was actually one for the books.
Ramona Singer falls asleep — RHONY season 7
There have been so many reunion episodes throughout exhibits from totally different Housewives cities that firsts are more and more uncommon. However Ramona Singer — the “Singer Stinger” herself — delivered one in RHONY’s season-seven reunion when she fell asleep on the sofa. “Get up, mama!,” stated Heather Thomson as she observed Ramona drifting off.
Andy vs. the whole New Jersey solid — RHONJ season 12
As Bravo’s resident pot stirrer, Andy Cohen has been a continuing presence at reunions because the days when the Actual Housewives franchise was only one not-so-humble present. He retains his cool more often than not, however often he involves blows with the solid. On the Actual Housewives of New Jersey season-12 reunion, Andy misplaced his mood like by no means earlier than. When a screaming match between the whole solid bought uncontrolled, he stood up and yelled, “You’re all speaking!,” later confessing that he had “misplaced his shit.” Housewife Margaret Josephs stated afterward, “Oh my God, I by no means noticed you so unhealthy.” We don’t disagree!
Andy vs. Ramona Singer — RHONY season 6
Within the Housewives world, there’s just one factor extra clichéd than a vow-renewal ceremony: the divorce that inevitably follows. That is exactly what occurred when Ramona Singer’s 25-year marriage with Mario hit the rocks. And when rumors of his infidelities appeared within the press, Ramona was not eager on discussing it at RHONY’s season-six reunion. When Andy requested how her marriage was going, Singer shot again, “Mario and I are collectively. Let’s go to another person. Thanks, Andy.” When he tried to push the dialogue additional, she wasn’t pleased. “So how’s your love life? Who’re you going to have intercourse with tonight? Inform me!,” she responded. “I’ll let you know once I go on a actuality present,” Andy shot again. Zing! In the long run, Singer ended up shouting, “I’m shutting this down!,” and for a second, it regarded as if she may stroll offstage. The next yr, she gave Andy considered one of her well-known “in awwwwl sincerity …” apologies, and the pair buried the hatchet.
Andy vs. Carole Radziwill — RHONY season 10
The story goes that Carole Radziwill and Andy Cohen met at a cocktail party; she let slip that due to her marriage to the late Anthony Radziwill, she may use the titles duchess and princess — and the following day she began getting calls from Bravo. Issues weren’t so rosy in Carole’s last reunion, although, when she was not impressed with Andy’s referee stills throughout a heated second along with her bestie turned nemesis Bethenny Frankel. Carole turned to him and stated, “You’re so filled with shit, Andy!” Since exiting the present that yr, she hasn’t been so complimentary about Bravo in interviews and on Twitter — we aren’t positive the pair are nonetheless on talking phrases.
Adrienne Maloof — RHOBH season 3
No-showing at a reunion is the final word cop-out — irrespective of what number of ’wives attempt to rebrand it as some form of “boss transfer.” Adrienne Maloof was the primary to no-show, when her co-star Brandi Glanville spilled rumors about her private life on-camera in RHOBH’s third season. This sparked a irritating scenario through which Adrienne bought attorneys concerned and succeeded in partially shutting down the story line. Quite than present up and face the music, she was absent from the reunion. In a dramatic flip of occasions, Andy turned to the digital camera and fired her there after which, saying, “Adrienne Maloof’s last act as a Housewife just isn’t displaying up tonight.” (She has since stated she regrets the no-show.)
Lisa Vanderpump — RHOBH season 9
Lisa Vanderpump was fairly shady when Adrienne Maloof — her onetime nemesis — didn’t present up for the season-three reunion, however that didn’t cease her doing the very same factor in season 9, when the whole solid accused Lisa of leaking a narrative to Radar On-line about her co-star Dorit Kemsley allegedly abandoning a canine (Lucy Lucy Apple Juice). After Puppygate, LVP’s husband, Ken, kicked Kyle Richards and her unpleasant felt hat out of Villa Rosa, screaming, “Goodbye, Kyle!” We didn’t see a lot of her on RHOBH after that as a result of she refused to point out up and maintain her facet of the cut price. As soon as once more, it’s the followers who misplaced out.
Michael Darby — RHOP season 4
Let’s face it: Nobody watches Actual Housewives for the husbands. However that doesn’t imply that generally their (alleged) actions don’t turn out to be main story traces. RHOP’s fourth season was dominated by Ashley Darby’s (now-estranged) husband, Michael, who was accused of groping a crew member. Filming was initially suspended and resumed solely after the fees have been dropped, however this didn’t cease lots of the solid from believing he was responsible. Michael was additionally accused of constructing some, er, pretty lewd feedback about Robyn Dixon’s associate, Juan. And on the season-four reunion, all this got here to a blistering conclusion with the Darbys dealing with off towards the remainder of the solid.
Paul Kemsley — RHOBH season 7
Paul “PK” Kemsley, husband of everybody’s favourite American with a British-accent, Dorit, is a cautionary story to husbands of Housewives all over the place: Don’t get too concerned within the drama. In season seven of RHOBH, PK’s first of many on the present, that’s precisely what he did. When Erika Girardi went commando and by chance flashed PK, Dorit gave her a pair of underwear and, effectively, she didn’t see the humorous facet. “Pantygate,” because it got here to be identified, was a season-defining drama. On the season finale, PK ended up calling Erika “inherently chilly,” and on the reunion, he returned to face the music. Surprisingly, the pair appeared to bury the hatchet, and now Dorit and Erika are besties.
Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Choose — RHOC season 12
The Housewives world is stuffed with on once more, off once more friendships, and the reunion is the place some relationships finish without end whereas others discover a path to reconciliation — with just a little assist from Andy, TV’s messiest therapist. Vicki Gunvalson (the self-proclaimed “OG of the OC”) and Tamra Choose (now making a return to the present) is one for the books. The pair have been good mates however infamously fell out when Vicki began relationship Brooks Ayers, a person who was alleged to have faked most cancers and scammed varied ladies. (What a catch!) After a number of seasons of mudslinging between them, through which Vicki was on a mission to make everybody suppose Tamra’s husband, Eddie, was homosexual, the pair by some means reconicled on the season-12 reunion. (They usually have been just lately noticed filming collectively, so issues nonetheless appear to be rosy between them.)
Briana Culbertson and Brooks Ayers — RHOC season 8, season 10
Reunions might be the place some relationships go from unhealthy to worse. That is what occurred in season eight of RHOC when Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana, and Vicki’s now-ex boyfriend Brooks went head-to-head. Like many solid members, Briana disliked Brooks and had considerations about her mom’s tumultuous relationship with him. Throughout a tense confrontation, Briana claimed Brooks had suggested her husband, Ryan, to start out hitting her. Brooks apologized and admitted he had stated it — to gasps from the remainder of the solid. Two seasons later, when Vicki’s relationship with Brooks had ended amid rumors of a most cancers rip-off, Briana returned to the reunion sofa. This time, she claimed Brooks had hit on her whereas she was pregnant and tried to flash her.
Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin — RHONY season 3
Housewives can generally really feel just a little bit like The Starvation Video games. And in season three of RHONY, Jill Zarin’s botched try and take down Bethenny Frankel left her at odds with the remainder of the solid. On the finish of a drama-packed season through which Jill was famously turned away from the solid journey to the Caribbean, the reunion was the place all of it got here to a head. And regardless of Jill’s crying and begging for forgiveness, there was no path to reconciliation along with her former bestie. (Longtime RHONY followers will know the pair finally made up years later, so it’s all good.)
Shannon and David Beador — RHOC season 12
The Actual Housewives Divorce Curse stretches proper again to the franchise’s origins. When reality-TV cameras put the give attention to a relationship’s flaws and one particular person immediately turns into a “superstar,” generally these relationships don’t final. The separation (and eventual divorce) of Shannon and David Beador was one of the crucial painful to look at: affairs, fights, a vow renewal, and Shannon even attending her personal funeral (that includes a headstone). However the couple lastly known as it quits in 2017, after 17 years collectively, which led to a fairly messy divorce. Shannon tearfully revealed that David had ended their relationship in the course of the season-12 reunion, and her followers breathed a deep sigh of aid. (In different information, David’s new spouse, Lesley, simply filed for divorce after lower than two years of marriage. You understand what they are saying about karma!)
Ramona Singer — RHONY season one
The reunion storm-off has turn out to be as a lot part of the Housewives world as solid journeys, messy fortune tellers, Prohibition-era Gatsby-themed events, leaking tales to the press, and throwing your prosthetic leg throughout an NYC cocktail get together. (Okay, possibly not that final one.) One of many first Housewives to exit the reunion sofa (earlier than returning barely later) was Ramona Singer, in RHONY’s first reunion, which was only one episode lengthy. Ramona didn’t wish to be related to a dialogue about semi-nude pictures of her co-star Alex McCord, presumably due to the way it may replicate on her in fancy Higher East Facet circles. Within the true-crime period of Housewives, such a “scandal” would barely register at a reunion. However clearly, season considered one of RHONY was an easier time!
Camille Grammer — RHOBH season 9
Camille Grammer hasn’t been a full-time Housewife since season two, however she has by no means been removed from the motion. In Lisa Vanderpump’s season-nine absence, Camille turned the principle antagonist and gave us one of the crucial epic storm-offs in Housewives historical past. After dropping the bomb that she had invited the solid to her Hawaii wedding ceremony solely due to “manufacturing,” Camille bought up from the sofa, yelled for her producer, and began taking off her mic and gown as she stomped towards the exit. (The scene was so weird that Denise Richards even requested if Camille was “on one thing.”)
Vicki Gunvalson accuses Kelly Dodd of doing cocaine — RHOC season 13
Through the years, the subject of leisure drug use has come up so much on Housewives. (How may we neglect Lisa Rinna’s epic “Had been individuals doing coke in your lavatory?”) And from RHONY’s John Mahdessian to RHOC’s Braunwyn Windham-Burke, allegations of doing coke have made an look at reunions, too. Throughout RHOC’s season-13 reunion, one of the crucial impactful allegations got here when Vicki Gunvalson accused Kelly Dodd of doing cocaine. Kelly strongly denied the claims, in fact, however Bravo was so unimpressed with Vicki that she was demoted to a “buddy of” position after 13 years on the present. Different ’wives ought to take notice: Not even “the OG of the OC” is untouchable. (That stated, Vicki appeared on the second season of Final Women Journey and was just lately noticed filming for RHOC’s upcoming season, so possibly Bravo has forgiven her.)
“The lies, the lies, the lies!” — RHOA season 9
Not solely Vicki was fired for making wild accusations at a reunion: At RHOA’s season-nine gathering, it lastly got here out who advised Porsha Williams that Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, had tried to drug and rape her: Phaedra Parks began the rumor that had been effervescent away all season. It’s one of the crucial damaging accusations ever made on Housewives, and it unsurprisingly resulted in Phaedra’s firing. Nonetheless, there’s a silver lining: Kandi’s response — the long-lasting “THE LIES, THE LIES, THE LIES!” — turned one of many all-time biggest response memes. (Identical to Vicki, Phaedra was again for RHUGT season two, so it looks like it’s extra water below the Bravo bridge.)
Adrienne Maloof accuses Lisa Vanderpump of promoting tales — RHOBH season two
Years earlier than Puppygate, through which Lisa Vanderpump was accused of leaking tales to Radar On-line and took a lie-detector take a look at to attempt to show in any other case, RHOBH’s resident “sniper from the facet” was accused of promoting tales to the outlet on the season-two reunion. Adrienne Maloof put a large goal on her again by making the allegation, which LVP was not pleased about. After describing the accusation as “a fucking insult,” Lisa insisted, “I’ve by no means bought a narrative in my life, and I received’t be accused of that!” Look how effectively that labored out.
Teresa Giudice shoves Andy Cohen — RHONJ season two
This second may simply have gone into the “Andy vs. the Housewives” part, however in fact, an Obama-suit-clad Andy Cohen was simply an harmless bystander when he bought between Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub. Teresa turned enraged when Danielle — who, for causes unknown, was carrying a white tank high to a reunion — introduced up her household. As Teresa moved towards Danielle, Andy tried to restrain her, however she pushed him proper again into his seat. You inform him, Tre!
Porsha Williams assaults Kenya Moore — RHOA season 6
For causes unknown, Bravo let Kenya Moore carry a scepter and a megaphone to the reunion, which she wouldn’t cease utilizing to impress Porsha Williams. After lastly reaching her breaking level, Porsha stood up, grabbed Kenya by the hair, and dragged her throughout the stage. The incident was so unhealthy that Porsha was demoted to “buddy of” for the next season. (No megaphones have been permitted at reunions since then.)
Monique’s binder — RHOP season 5
Earlier than social media got here alongside and made Bravo blogs a factor of the previous (RIP), reunions have been the principle area for Housewives to problem the portrayal of sure occasions on the present. With the fourth wall at all times down, no subject is off-limits. And as increasingly of the Housewives’ onscreen friendships are performed by way of textual content, this implies receipts are regularly brandished. In her last reunion, Monique Samuels went a step additional by bringing a complete binder of receipts along with her that was filled with color-coded dust on her castmates. Essentially the most brutal revelation was a transcript of a dialog between Jamal Bryant, ex-husband and then-boyfriend of Gizelle Bryant, and one other girl that appeared to disclose an indiscretion. Monique could now not be on the present, however she nonetheless holds the title for many brutal use of receipts at a reunion.
RHONJ season one
RHONJ’s first reunion set was an ode to the mantra “So unhealthy it’s good.” With a marble ground, gleaming couches, and hanging chandeliers, it was giving Kris Jenner–meets–Kyle Richards’ white get together (circa 2011)–meets–Dynasty, all pulled collectively on a shoestring.
RHOSLC season two
The lead-up to a reunion isn’t simply concerning the seating chart and ready to see who has been chosen to take a seat on both facet of Andy. Now a part of the pregame warm-up is the reveal of reunion seems to be on social media. RHOSLC’s second reunion broke the web when Bravo posted some, effectively, attention-grabbing outfits. From Jen Shah’s purple feathers to Lisa Barlow in metallic silver, the women pulled out all of the stops. And the reunion set, an igloo-inspired winter paradise, was additionally one for the books.
RHOP season 5
Potomac’s season-five reunion set was reworked into Portugal, the place the ladies vacay’d on their solid journey (minus Monique, who skipped the journey after her bodily altercation with Candiace). On the reunion, the ladies of Potomac dazzled in canary yellow. And by some means, towards all the percentages, they served.
RHONY season 12
After greater than 15 years, the reunions have turn out to be a lot glitzier. It’s the customized for his or her units to be massive, elaborate, and, most of all, themed. Probably the most meta appeared in RHONY’s season 12 reunion, which was filmed utilizing socially distanced chairs as a substitute of couches. The ladies have been joined by the ghost of reunions previous, with furnishings and items from the earlier 11 RHONY reunions organized within the backdrop. Now that’s historical past!
RHOA season 13
If we have been celebrating particular person reunion seems to be, we’d be right here all day. However of all of the ensemble casts, none nails a theme fairly like the ladies of Atlanta. It’s onerous to choose one RHOA trend spotlight, but season 13’s all-black lineup was a gasp-worthy second. Explicit props go to Kandi’s BDSM-inspired look, which was little doubt a reference to the dungeon-themed get together (and the stripper) that induced a lot controversy in the course of the season. Siri, play Rihanna “S&M”!
