Starting out in Orange County, the Real Housewives franchise has quickly expanded to 6 more locations and even became an international sensation with installments in Canada, France, Greece and Australia. The first Real Housewives Awards showcased the most memorable moments from the American versions of the show in the past year.
Discover the Real Housewives Winners from their best moments to their worst, featuring housewives from Beverly Hills, Atlanta, New Jersey and Orange County.
Most Memorable Outfit – Kenya Moore’s Phaedra Outfit (RHOA)
One of the biggest Real Housewives Awards winners was Atlanta’s Kenya Moore. Her parody of Phaedra Parks’ looks managed to beat high fashion and even Joanna’s wedding gown.
Pairing a fishnet bodysuit with a white floppy hat, Kenya mercilessly ridiculed Phaedra’s wardrobe choices.
Loveliest Locks – Joyce Giraud (RHOBH)
While newcomer Joyce Giraud de Ohoven didn’t bring any drama to Beverly Hills, the first Latina housewife in the franchise made a big impression thanks to her beautiful hair. Joyce also showed she can use her locks to full effect when trying to make a point.
Outstanding Achievement in Extremely Short Form Live Action – Kim “Faints” (RHOBH)
The most GIF-worthy of the Real Housewives Awards winners, Kim Richards’ fake faint was one of the most hilarious moments of the past season. Trying to ridicule Lisa Vanderpump’s faint from “Dancing With The Stars”, which she deemed fake, Kim managed to lose her balance and fall on the floor.
Favorite Real Housewives City – Beverly Hills
After premiering in 2010, RHOBH offered a new take on the franchise, but included as must drama as the other shows, minus physical violence. Featured in Lady Gaga’s G.U.Y. video, the Beverly Hills housewives are tied with the Atlanta ladies with 4 awards.
Favorite Quote – Lisa Vanderpump (RHOBH)
With plenty of quotable moments from all the cities in the franchise, fans struggles to pick their favorite when voting for the Real Housewives Awards winners. The winning quote perfectly represents Lisa Vanderpumps’ playful attitude on the show: “This is too bitchy I shouldn’t say it – but I’m awfully glad I did”.
Party of the Year – NeNe Leaks’ Pillow Talk Party (RHOA)
List most events that feature all the housewives, NeNe Leaks’ party ended with a huge fight. On the Real Housewives of Atlanta, things got physical during the pillow talk party. Asking delicate questions pushes a lot of buttons, so the housewives didn’t get along for long, despite trying to keep it real.
OMG-est Moment of the Year – Joe vs. Joe Fight (RHONJ)
The most violent moment on the list of Real Housewives Awards winners, the fight between Joe Gorga (Teresa’s brother) and Joe Giudice (her husband) ended on a hilarious note. Using spray-on-hair can help conceal hair loss, but Joe Gorga’s black hair-in-a-can ended up staining Joe Giudice’s fists.
Rookie of The Year – Kenya Moore (RHOA)
One of the latest additions to the Atlanta cast, Kenya Moore made a big impact this season. After winning Miss USA 1993, the second African-American winner of the competition, she founded a charity devoted to helping underprivileged girls, but Moore instantly became a fan favorite in Atlanta because she brought the drama!
Best Fight Locale – Bridal Shop (RHOA)
The last of the Real Housewives Awards winners from Atlanta, the best fight locale was voted on Bravo TV’s site as the bridal shop when Kandi Burruss’ mother and best friend. Mama Joyce yanked off her shoe and tried to throw it at Carmon, threatening to mess her up!
Lifetime Achievement – Vicki Gunvalson (RHOC)
The only housewife to make it through 9 seasons, Vicki Gunvalson is the matriarch of the Orange County housewives and was honored by Bravo with the Lifetime Achievement award.
Unfortunately for fans of The Real Housewives of New York City and The Real Housewives of Miami, neither of their favorites managed to win at the first edition of the awards. The final two Real Housewives Awards winners include Orange County (Most Shocking Reunion Twist – Briana’s revelations about Brooks) and New Jersey (Best Supporting Agitator – Kim D).
