Best & Worst: Housewives Reunion Fashions – Our Pick For “Queen of Ugly”

Posted on Nov 1 2014 - 2:23pm by BeachSpin


It’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion eve, everyone! 

It’s always fun to think about all that can happen on these special “Housewives” episodes….some live up to the hype, and others fall flat, but they are always a wild card with great potential for dramatic fireworks. While we mainly tune in to hear the banter, sniping and occasional shrieking, it is also fun to see what new variety of hideous prom wear the women will show up in.  The dramatic gowns, overdone hair, and chunky makeup…..the gaudy amusement is endless.  We have decided to bring back some hideous blasts from the pasts just for some Saturday laughs.

I am crowning Dina Manzo as my choice for the current reunion’s “Queen of Ugly” and the getup is just the beginning, based on the sneak peek.

    Tamra is my pick for “Queen of Ugly,” not only at the reunion but IN LIFE PERIOD! Bitch.

    Dina is nasty. I can;t believe she turned around a conversation about Nicholas and her never meeting him, to how it affects Lexi and those that are old enough to understand. Or that Nicholas is progressing and not tied to tubes and dying. Andy should have pushed back on that. She turned that around to a poor Lexi moment.

    Oh Nene… That get up is horrific!

    Considering the amount of money she has to spend on something fabulous, my choice goes to the monstrosity worn by Adrienne Maloof. Wow, that was UGLY!

    • I’m with you on that. All that money and she still looks like cheap curtains.

      • nan/4

        LOL! Yeah, THAT’S what it looks like! Hahaha….

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Me too. I never ceases to amaze me how cheap Adrienne looks. She’s a walking fire hazard.

  • Bwahahaha!!!!! Nene looks like George Washington,.

  • Jennymckitty

    I think it is a tie between Nene and Gretchen’s Honey BooBoo goes to the Icecapades.

    • BeachSpin

      I absolutely DETEST that mint green monstrosity.

    This is OT, but last evening was cold and damp so we took my 8 yr old son to the mall to trick or treat. One of the participating merchants was a spa. When they gave him a piece of candy he said, “Thanks, but could I have a massage instead?”

    • Awwww…….ADORABLE! 🙂

      Your son is too smart for words.

      • Jennymckitty

        Thanks, Doc. He has a great sense of humor.

        • He sounds sharp as a whip too! I love his sense of humor. Kudos mom!!

        Hi Doc!

    • Harleygirl0685

      That is really cute! What was his costume? You know how you always say to the little ones put everything in your bag til we get home …When my son was like 3 or 4 a lady up the street was giving apple cider out with candy…well in the bag went the apple cider! She reminded him of that every year, it was so cute!

    Dina is ugly inside and out. Oh my has she aged in the last 4 years too……. Still living with Tommy cause she nothing without him. I think project Ladybug needs to replace her and get someone in there that could make a ton of money for the charity. Remember the 1st year, I bet there was double or triple the amount of people there. She just kills the spirit in anything alive. Run Tommy Run, you better check your drinks too, I am sure she wants the inheritance.

    Dina’s black/gold dress is ugly. Just like the one Lisa V wore on RHOBH.

    • BeachSpin

      Big WOOF!!!

    • Ukip tottie

      the dress is a generic black number, she could have picked up anywhere, she just accessorised it with a cheap looking chainy bib

      Lisa V’s dress was Alexander McQueen and fabulous!

  • Harleygirl0685

    I think they all should of showed up in comfy leopard print pj’s! 😉

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Did Dina put that chain thing on or is it part of the dress? She looks as cluttered as her interior designs. Teresa looked terrible in that green dress, her tan and overcooked turkey chest were like those female body builders.

  • Ukip tottie

    Dina has no personality and she has no idea who she is. I think her inside was neglected, when she was younger and people kept gushing about her outside.
    She lives in a house with grandma’s curtains, cockerel chairs, Laura Ashley couches, a hedonistic Kardashian closet, IKEA Buddha statues and creepy cats.
    Here, she is dressed liked Ke$ha at the MTV music awards – without the youth and occasion to get away with it.
    She’s pathetic and a non entity.
    Having said that, Adrienne always look cheap and tacky for somebody so loaded, NeNe wouldn’t know fashion if she snorted it, Gretchen has always looked like a small town pageant girl form the 90’s, and Ramona, well, if it’s not shiny sateen from the 80’s, she won’t wear it.

  • Babson_Chick

    OMG they’re all horrible so excuse me while I wash my eyes out.

  • Jersey

    On Dina’s instagram page she says Maleficent was her inspiration for this look. The outfit doesn’t look so bad but that hair is just.. No bueno.
