title iconReal Housewives who have displayed problematic behavior on their shows

Taking part in the Real Housewives franchise means meeting and spending time with a wide variety of personalities. On the Internet, viewers are always picking their favorites and discussing their least favorites.

Despite this, some past and present cast members of The Real Housewives have less favorable legacies. Since the beginning of The Real Housewives franchise in 2006, it has focused primarily on showcasing the lives of wealthy women and their families.

As the franchise expanded to more cities, it became increasingly evident that fans enjoyed moments of high tension, such as the fractured sisterhood between Kim and Kyle Richards, as well as rooting for some wives and dismissing others. Occasionally, a cast member is added who shakes up the cast, but not in a positive way. The Real Housewives television franchise has expanded across the nation. The franchise has attracted millions of viewers and has had a significant impact on reality television. Since the show has generated such a large following, the cast must maintain a sense of integrity and not communicate in a manner that could be viewed as damaging. As a result, fans have observed on occasion that the casting process has failed the franchise and placed emphasis on characters who demonstrate outdated views and behaviors.


Mary Cosby From RHOSLC

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City's Mary Cosby left the show after two seasons. Mary is the leader of a church and found her outspoken and sometimes strange behavior on the show to be a source of division among viewers.

When Mary, a woman of color, spoke at the ACRH reunion, she admitted she avoided 7-Eleven stores if there were Black people nearby. Later in season 2, Mary expressed a preference for Jennie Nguyen, who is Vietnamese American, for her "slanted eyes" and "yellow tones" on her face. In addition, she compared Jen Shah to a "Mexican thug."

Teresa Giudice From RHONJ

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is constantly criticized for presenting her arguments in an unprofessional manner. There were many moments throughout Teresa's time on RHONJ that made the infamous Teresa table flip a less-than-favorable introduction to her character.

When those who are offended by Teresa's comments get offended, she assures them that she was only laughing at them.

Ramona Singer From RHONY

Several viewers of Real Housewives of New York City believe that Ramona Singer's time on the show has come to an end. Since becoming a cast member in season 1, Ramona has undoubtedly contributed to many iconic moments such as her runway walk on the runway and her constant battle with Bethenny Frankel.

However, some of her ways of behaving and some of her viewpoints have been challenged. Even when Ramona is unable to recall the names of the staff she has hired, she refers to them as "the help." In season 13, Ramona's constant back and forth with Eboni K. Williams painted a picture that some fans perceived as the result of unconscious racism over the years.
