A Definitive Ranking Of Every “Real Housewives” Tagline Ever



198. DeShawn Snow, Atlanta — Season 1

Destined for greatness, or just one season as a Housewife? Bravo

197. Karent Sierra, Miami — Season 2

We get it, you’re a dentist. Bravo

196. Jo De La Rosa, OC — Season 1

He didn’t keep you, though. You and Slade broke up, Jo. Bravo

195. Lydia Schiavello, Melbourne — Season 2

Is anyone on these shows a “traditional” housewife? Bravo

194. Bethenny Frankel, NYC — Seasons 1–3

Minus points for name-checking the city. Bravo

193. Stacie Turner, D.C. — Season 1

This is basically Bethenny’s tagline. Bravo

192. Kyle Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 3

Again, Bethenny’s tagline reworked. Bravo

191. Teresa Giudice, New Jersey — Season 3

+1 for not just saying “New Jersey is my state.” Bravo

What’s the opposite of a humble brag? Bravo

Oh, just a brag. Bravo

188. Kelly Killoren Bensimon, NYC — Seasons 2–3

It would be weird if you hated living it. Bravo

Subtle plug for your PR firm, Marysol. Bravo

Did Marysol put the spotlight on you? Bravo

185. Lea Black, Miami — Season 3

But does it really? Bravo

184. Chyka Keebaugh, Melbourne — Season 1

And probably money. Bravo

183. Kyle Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 2

You and Chyka should combine your luck forces. Bravo

182. Jacqueline Laurita, New Jersey — Season 5

#inspirational Bravo

181. Kim Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 3

We need to restrict everyone’s use of the word “journey.” Bravo

+1 for the metaphor. Bravo

179. Caroline Manzo, New Jersey — Season 4

This is a lie. You’re on the Real Housewives. Bravo

178. Kandi Burruss, Atlanta — Season 7

Again, you’re a Housewife. Drama is your job. Bravo

Is anyone not their own person? Bravo

176. Lydia Schiavello, Melbourne — Season 1

Puns! Bravo

175. Michaele Salahi, D.C. — Season 1

You’d expect a better tagline from the woman who (allegedly) crashed a White House state dinner. Bravo

174. Camille Grammer, Beverly Hills — Season 1

Kelsey Grammer did call RHOBH his “parting gift” to Camille before their divorce. Bravo

173. Jackie Gillies, Melbourne — Season 1

Camille’s tagline + two extra shines. Bravo

172. Shereé Whitfield, Atlanta — Seasons 1–2

Three words: She By Shereé. Bravo

171. Cynthia Bailey, Atlanta — Seasons 3–4

If you say so. Bravo

170. Cat Ommanney, D.C. – Season 1

Like the show, which was canceled after one season. Bravo

169. Alexis Bellino, OC — Season 7

Would we? Bravo

168. Marysol Patton, Miami — Season 2

What does this even mean? Bravo

167. Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Atlanta — Season 5

#blessed Bravo

166. Melissa Gorga, New Jersey — Season 5

Literally. Take a page from Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage by Melissa Gorga. Bravo

165. Phaedra Parks, Atlanta — Seasons 3–4

And this is why Phaedra is a lawyer/mortician/fitness instructor/etiquette expert. Bravo

164. Lydia McLaughlin, OC — Season 8

So, Lydia does not believe in reincarnation. Bravo

163. Kathy Wakile, New Jersey — Season 4

This is very Sopranos. Bravo

162. Lizzie Rovsek, OC — Season 9

True. Bravo

161. Heather Dubrow, OC — Season 8

Heather DuBrow, formerly the only brunette on RHOC. Bravo

160. NeNe Leakes, Atlanta — Seasons 3–4

When you leave a room, do you sell it? Bravo

159. Alexis Bellino, OC — Season 8

Only God — and millions of Bravo viewers — can judge you. Bravo

158. Tamra Judge, OC — Season 8

Technically if you start over, you’re wiping away everything you already did… so you can’t look back. Bravo

157. Amber Marchese, New Jersey — Season 6

Except all the other women on the show who you fought with, Amber. Bravo

156. Gretchen Rossi, OC — Season 6

What does sadness mean? Bravo

155. Gretchen Rossi, OC — Season 8

Would’ve been better with “I get tougher too.” Bravo

“Just me. I let me drive me crazy.” Bravo

152. Tamra Barney, OC — Season 3

Bold statement. Bravo

151. Heather Thomson, NYC — Season 6

Minus points for basically stealing Aviva’s tagline. Bravo

150. Aviva Drescher, NYC — Season 5

See, Heather just reworded this. Bravo

149. Alexia Echevarria, Miami — Season 1

Surprising this didn’t end with “And I do.” Bravo

148. Kim Zolciak, Atlanta — Seasons 1–2

“And I get mine from Big Papa.” Bravo

147. Lisa Vanderpump, Beverly Hills — Season 1

We’ve reached the end of the “In [city], [x} gives you [y]” section of taglines. Bravo

146. Alex McCord, NYC — Seasons 1–3

And one of those people is Jill Zarin (see below). Bravo

145. Jill Zarin, NYC — Seasons 1–3

This is what Alex was talking about. Bravo

144. Kyle Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 1

Hollywood is fake?! Bravo

143. Kyle Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 4

This is just Kyle’s Season 1 tagline recycled. Bravo

142. Brandi Glanville, Beverly Hills — Season 4

Sounds dangerous. Bravo

141. Tammy Knickerbocker, OC — Season 3

I don’t think this is true. Bravo

“But I have a lot of money.” Bravo

139. Yolanda Foster, Beverly Hills — Season 5

“I also have a lot of money.” Bravo

138. Tamra Judge, OC — Season 9

The immortal Tamra Judge. Bravo

137. Cynthia Bailey, Atlanta — Season 5

But hold onto beauty as long as you can! Bravo

136. Lauri Peterson, OC — Season 3

OC lifestyle = ability to spend money. Bravo

135. Melissa Gorga, New Jersey — Season 6

Solid try at reworking “forgive and forget.” Bravo

134. Gina Liano, Melbourne — Season 2

Another attempt at updating an old adage, but it really just sounds like you mispronounced “fiction.” Bravo

133. NeNe Leakes, Atlanta — Season 6

Two different sayings brought together in one tagline. Bravo

132. Alex McCord, NYC — Season 4

Alex spoke those opinions…and was fired from the show. Bravo

131. Taylor Armstrong, Beverly Hills — Season 2

Hey, you stole Alex’s tagline! Bravo

130. Gina Liano, Melbourne — Season 1

Opinions are important to Housewives, apparently. Bravo

129. Teresa Giudice, New Jersey — Season 6

#FreeTre Bravo

128. Phaedra Parks, Atlanta — Season 7

If only Phaedra could’ve fit being a mortician into this tagline too. Bravo

127. Caroline Manzo, New Jersey — Season 1–2


126. Lynne Curtin, OC — Season 4

Honest. Bravo

125. Tamra Barney, OC — Season 5

That’s kind of subjective, though. Bravo

124. Joyce Giraud de Ohoven, Beverly Hills — Season 4

But, you can. Bravo

123. LuAnn de Lesseps, NYC — Season 5

Should’ve been, “Money can’t buy you class. Elegance is learned, my friends.” Amiright? Bravo

122. Chyka Keebaugh, Melbourne — Season 2

But you can also buy stylish things. Bravo

121. Brandi Glanville, Beverly Hills — Season 3

Someone’s read Class With the Countess: How to Live With Elegance and Flair by Luann de Lesseps. Bravo

120. Shereé Whitfield, Atlanta — Seasons 3–4

Few people are brave enough to call themselves “elegant and sophisticated.” Bravo

119. Sonja Morgan, NYC — Seasons 3–4

“But I also filed for bankruptcy.” Bravo

118. Cynthia Bailey, Atlanta — Season 6

Welcome to the “Housewives making work puns” section. Bravo

117. Heather Thomson, NYC — Season 5

This would’ve been lower, but the “Holla!” bumped it up on the list. Bravo

116. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 5

Same deal as Heather — the “Woohoo!” saves this tagline. Bravo

115. Kandi Burruss, Atlanta — Season 6

Read: Don’t mess with Mama Joyce. Bravo

114. Tamra Barney, OC — Season 4

Is that a threat? Bravo

113. Adrienne Maloof, Beverly Hills — Season 2

And what if you’re not willing to work for it? Bravo

112. Heather Dubrow, OC — Season 9

Possibly the most used tagline in Housewives history. We’ll call this Example A. Bravo

111. Taylor Armstrong, Beverly Hills — Season 1

Example B. Bravo

110. LuAnn de Lesseps, NYC — Season 5

Example C. Bravo

109. Lisa Hochstein, Miami — Season 3

There has to be ONE person who doesn’t underestimate you, Lisa. Bravo

108. Lisa Rinna, Beverly Hills — Season 5

This subtle lips joke saved you, other Lisa. Bravo

107. Kathy Wakile, New Jersey — Season 3

Don’t kill us, Kathy. Bravo

106. Kenya Moore, Atlanta — Season 6

Minus points for stealing Kim Richards’ tagline. Bravo

105. Kim Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 2

See, Kenya stole it. Bravo

104. Kenya Moore, Atlanta — Season 7

And then reworded it. Bravo

103. Jeana Keough, OC — Season 1

Both solid and terrible advice. Bravo

102. Jeana Keough, OC — Season 2

Jeana’s tagline should’ve just been her shouting “money” over and over again. Bravo

101. Jeana Keough, OC — Season 3

She fucking loves money. Bravo

100. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 3

Hilarious taken out of context. Bravo

99. Lisa Wu, Atlanta — Seasons 1–2

Fair enough. Bravo

98. Jeana Keough, OC — Season 5

Camille Grammer disagrees (see below). Bravo

97. Camille Grammer, Beverly Hills — Season 2

Ask Tamra what freedom gets you (see below). Bravo

96. Tamra Barney, OC — Season 6

No one can accuse Tamra of having low self-esteem. Bravo

95. Gretchen Rossi, OC — Season 4

Aren’t those the same thing? Bravo

94. Kandi Burruss, Atlanta — Season 3–4

Oh, look. More Housewives talking about money. Bravo

93. Kyle Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 5

“A very large, expensive home.” Bravo

92. Kim Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 5

The Richards sisters are pro-happiness. Bravo

91. Jo De La Rosa, OC — Season 2

OK… Bravo

90. Jacqueline Laurita, New Jersey — Seasons 1-2

“But I will show you all of my nice things on TV.” Bravo

89. Lauri Waring, OC — Season 2

Weird that this doesn’t end with Lauri screaming, “Suckas!” Bravo

88. Teresa Giudice, New Jersey — Seasons 1–2

Are you more jealous of Jersey girls… Bravo

87. Kim Zolciak, Atlanta — Seasons 3–4

Or gold diggers? Bravo

86. Adriana De Moura, Miami — Season 1

Impressive. Bravo

85. Adriana De Moura, Miami — Season 2

OK, we get it, you speak five languages. Also, independence is not a language. Bravo

84. Yolanda Foster, Beverly Hills — Season 4

And here we are at the “Housewives subtly call out their castmates” section. Bravo

83. Teresa Giudice, New Jersey — Season 4

“And they are not on this show.” Bravo

82. Adrienne Maloof, Beverly Hills — Season 3

*cough* Brandi *cough* Bravo

81. Caroline Manzo, New Jersey — Season 3

“And I’ll punch you if you mess with my fambily.” Bravo

80. Shannon Beador, OC — Season 9

“You know why Tamra’s hair is so big? It’s full of secrets.” Bravo

79. Adriana De Moura, Miami — Season 3

And those surprises are secrets! Bravo

78. Jeana Keough, OC — Season 4

Moving onto the “I call the shots” section. Bravo

77. Tamra Barney, OC — Season 7

But calling the shots and making the shots are different things, Tamra. Bravo

76. Cindy Barshop, NYC — Season 4

And introducing the “my own terms” lineup. Bravo

75. Porsha Williams, Atlanta — Season 6

“Own rules” is a synonym for “own terms.” Bravo

74. Kandi Burruss, Atlanta — Season 2

We get it, you all call the shots. Bravo

73. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 6

This is getting tiresome. Bravo

72. Ramona Singer, NYC — Seasons 1–3

Way to liven it up by alluding to sex, Ramona. Bravo

71. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 8

“Which I can give myself, because I’m my own boss!” Bravo

70. Kandi Burruss, Atlanta — Season 5

True fans know it’s really “I may be small — ♫oooooh♫ — but my empire keeps on growing.” Bravo

69. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 9

“Also, I make my own money and I am my own boss. WOOHOO!” Bravo

68. Phaedra Parks, Atlanta — Season 5

+1 for referencing the great donkey booty/stallion booty battle. Bravo

Why doesn’t Vegas have a Housewives? Bravo

“Checkmate, bitch.” —Brandi Glanville Bravo

64. Yolanda Foster, Beverly Hills — Season 3

“Especially yours, Lisa.” Bravo

Self-esteem is important. Bravo

60. Alexis Bellino, OC — Season 5

Well, at least you know it. Bravo

59. Kelly Killoren Bensimon, NYC — Season 4

Remember when Kelly ran in Manhattan traffic for fun? Bravo

58. Cristy Rice, Miami — Season 1

And the “keeping it real” section. Bravo

57. Ramona Singer, NYC — Season 4

Ramona Singer, making fellow Housewives cry since 2008. Bravo

56. Jackie Gillies, Melbourne — Season 2

+1 for light/shine pun! Bravo

55. Caroline Manzo, New Jersey — Season 5

Caroline Manzo, making fellow Housewives cry since 2009. Bravo

54. Lea Black, Miami — Season 1

AKA, “I’ll give you my opinion, but I don’t want to hear yours.” Bravo

53. Ramona Singer, NYC — Season 5

The blunter version of “If people can’t handle the truth, it’s really not my problem.” Bravo

52. Ana Quincoces, Miami — Season 2

Like Phaedra, Ana has a “slash”: lawyer/chef. Bravo

51. Kathy Wakile, New Jersey — Season 5

“My kitchen, where I make my dessert line, Indulge by Kathy Wakile.” Bravo

50. Taylor Armstrong, Beverly Hills — Season 3

But she will still go “Oklahoma on your ass.” Bravo

49. Lauri Peterson, OC — Season 4

Problem is, you’re not a real princess. Bravo

48. Carole Radziwill, NYC — Season 5

Carole actually is a real princess. Bravo

47. Gretchen Rossi, OC — Season 7

+1 for being anti-princess. Bravo

46. Melissa Gorga, New Jersey — Season 4

One of the better play on words made by a Housewife. Bravo

45. Joanna Krupa, Miami — Season 3

“And because I have it all.” Bravo

44. Claudia Jordan, Atlanta — Season 7

“And because I’m beautiful.” Bravo

43. Phaedra Parks, Atlanta — Season 6

Is this a MasterCard ad? Bravo

42. Kim Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 1

“But also, cast me in things!” Bravo

41. Alexia Echevarria, Miami — Season 3

It seems that the phrase “Cuban Barbie” didn’t clear legal. Bravo

40. Pettifleur Berenger, Melbourne — Season 2

Get it? “Pettifleur” means “little flower,” guys. Bravo

39. Kim Richards, Beverly Hills — Season 4

Or Valerie Cherish. Bravo

38. Cynthia Bailey, Atlanta — Season 7

Would anyone ever not choose themselves? Bravo

37. Sonja Morgan, NYC — Season 5

+1 Sonja for being the first Housewife to include her name in her tagline. Bravo

36. Kenya Moore, Atlanta — Season 5

Well, that’s obvious. Bravo

35. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 2

Except when it comes to plastic surgery. Bravo

34. Carlton Gebbia, Beverly Hills — Season 4

“Fuck.” —Carlton’s money Bravo

33. Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, New Jersey — Season 6

Poor girls have to share everything, including their tagline. Bravo

32. Andrea Moss, Melbourne — Season 1

Especially when that plastic surgeon is her husband. Bravo

31. Lisa Hochstein, Miami — Season 2

“Plastic surgeon” seems to be the No. 1 career choice among the Real Housewives husbands. Bravo

30. Heather Dubrow, OC — Season 7

+1 Heather for being the first to name-drop her husband/plastic surgeon. Bravo

29. Quinn Fry, OC — Season 3

Creepy, because that’s her son hanging in the background. Bravo

28. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 4

This one’s great because the “I want them both” part is redundant. Bravo

27. NeNe Leakes, Atlanta — Seasons 1–2

Bloop! Bravo

26. LuAnn de Lesseps, NYC — Seasons 1–3

And if you did, you wouldn’t be a Housewife. Bravo

25. Gamble Breaux, Melbourne — Season 2

Possibly the best use of one’s own name in a tagline. Bravo

24. Mary Amons, D.C. — Season 1

A basic requirement of a Housewife. Bravo

23. Lynne Curtin, OC — Season 6

Mind you, Lynne was evicted from her home and later filed for bankruptcy. Bravo

22. Brandi Glanville, Beverly Hills — Season 5

Words to live by. Bravo

21. Kimberly Bryant, OC — Season 1

The first season OC taglines were just gems of quotes from the show. Bravo

20. Lauri Waring, OC — Season 1

Again, gems. Bravo

19. Lynda Erkiletian, D.C. — Season 1

The scariest tagline ever. Bravo

18. Dina Manzo, New Jersey — Seasons 1–2

She’s talking to you, Danielle Staub. Bravo

17. Eileen Davidson, Beverly Hills — Season 5

And, surprisingly, it wasn’t on RHOBH. Bravo

16. Joanna Krupa, Miami — Season 2

Solid play on words. Bravo

15. Kristen Taekman, NYC — Season 6

Quite the way to introduce yourself to the audience. Bravo

14. Lisa Vanderpump, Beverly Hills — Season 3

It SHOULD. Bravo

13. Janet Roach, Melbourne — Season 1

This makes no sense and all the sense at the same time. Bravo

12. Alexis Bellino, OC — Season 6

Alexis somehow worked God and sex into one thought. Bravo

11. Lea Black, Miami — Season 2

Amen. Bravo

10. Sonja Morgan, NYC — Season 6

And now we’re all picturing Sonja panty-less. Bravo

9. Danielle Staub, New Jersey — Seasons 1–2

So great, Dina Manzo’s daughter made it her yearbook quote. Bravo

8. Teresa Giudice, New Jersey — Season 5

Possible inspiration for Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” Bravo

7. Ramona Singer, NYC — Season 6

And by Pinot, she means Ramona Pinot Grigio. Bravo

6. NeNe Leakes, Atlanta — Season 7

Bloop, again! Bravo

5. Aviva Drescher, NYC — Season 6

Her fake leg…which she threw across a restaurant. Bravo

4. Lisa Vanderpump, Beverly Hills — Season 5

This tagline elicited a “Yaaass” across the internet when it premiered. Bravo

3. Dina Manzo, New Jersey — Season 6

Because, “Namaste, bitches.” Bravo

2. Vicki Gunvalson, OC — Season 1

The OG tagline from the OC. Bravo

1. Carole Radziwill, NYC — Season 6

The greatest tagline of all time. Bravo
