There have been many incredible vacations taken by the castmembers of the ‘Real Housewives.’ Trips to beautiful, exotic and historical places around the world, but regrettably (or not), so many of these trips turn into explosive cat-fights, making the rest of Americans guilty by association. Here are a few that stand out:
#1 – They put the Damn In Amsterdam! – As we witnessed last week, the ladies from”Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” had an explosive time while visiting Yolanda Foster’s native country, breaking glasses, lunging at throats, and yelling across the restaurant. Good times.
#2 – These tigers need to be caged! Who can forget the safari in Cape Town with the ladies from “Real Housewives of Atlanta?” Try as we may, the fight between Sheree Whitfield and Marlo Hampton was both repetitive and hypnotic. But let’s face it, it was rude of Sheree to only invite a few of the women to the dinner party. Guess we’ll check you, boo!
#3 – Ay Caramba, Puerto Rico! Once again the women of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” make the list with their co-ed trip when everyone turns against Lisa Vanderpump. Kyle Richards, having listened to the likes of Brandi Glanville (big mistake) goes toe to toe with Lisa over dinner. The subject: did Lisa suggest Brandi bring a tabloid magazine that accused Mauricio of cheating (on a different disaster girls trip)?
#4 – Ahh, traveling with family! That’s never a disaster, wink-wink. Fists were flying on the trip to Lake George for the castmembers of “Real Housewives ofNew Jersey.” The two Joe’s got into a brawl when Joe Gorga called his sister, Teresa Giudice, scum. What’s a Guido to do? Certainly not sit down and talk it out. Husband Joe opened a can of whoop-a$$.
#5 – Take a Xanax! The girls’ trip to St. Barts with the ladies of “Real Housewives of New York” will be forever be etched in our minds. When Aviva Drescher shows up with her husband, Reid, the only person who can make flying safe, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan let her know what a drag that is. Who can blame them? His presence threatened the sanctity of turtle time!
#6 – The hills were alive in Canada! This list wouldn’t be complete without our original girls, the women who started it all, “Real Housewives of Orange County.” Who can forget Vicki shouting in the mountains, her shrill voice echoing miles away, at Laurie Peterson that she did not have a threesome. That and peeing outdoors in the snow made it typical OC. They may not be the classiest, but they get the job done in their own style!
#7 – Trip to Scary Island! Clearly the most intense and disturbing girls trip in housewives’ history. Bethenny Frankel was the object of Kelly Bensimon’s misguided anger and confusion, leading to Kelly’s epic meltdown and accusation that Bethenny would kill her in her sleep. This should have been the most luxurious trip, part on a yacht in the Virgin Islands, part in a waterfront mansion, but things broke down quickly, leaving viewers saying, please bring us Return to Scary Island this season!
