5 Most Insane 'Real Housewives' Moments of All Time

rhonjAs we settle in for the new seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Atlanta, I think it's only prudent to take pause and remember all the drama that's come before them. We've seen Housewives from New York, New Jersey, DC, and Miami make complete fools of themselves for our entertainment, and we should honor those nut jobs with a little recognition -- a nod to their insanity, a raise of the wine glass to their utter lack of decorum and maturity, a tip of the hat to their brazen disregard for self-respect, if you will.

Without further ado, here are the 5 most insane Real Housewives moments of all time.

  • 'RHONJ' -- The Christening

    1

    Honestly, the RHONJ season 3 premiere when all hell broke loose at a BABY'S CHRISTENING was possibly the best hour of television I'd ever witnessed. It was the Godfather and Jerry Springer wrapped into one.

  • 'RHONY' -- Kelly on Scary Island

    2

    When Kelly Bensimon lost her mind on the RHONY trip to Scary Island, I watched with wide eyes as her seemingly drugged-out self just lost it. Then, at the reunion, when she came with the catchphrase "systematic bullying", it was confirmed that she'd officially gone overboard.

  • 'RHODC' -- White House Crashers

    3

    Michaele and Tareq Salahi are in a league of their own when it comes to crazy. Those two RHODC ego-maniacs crashed the White House, then pleaded the fifth to get off the hook. Thank god Bravo was there to capture all the insanity.

  • 'RHOBH' -- Dinner Party From Hell

    4

    The dinner party from hell at Camille Grammer's house on the RHOBH was some of the most calculated malevolence I've ever seen. Camille and that Allison DuBois "psychic" were tearing people apart for sport.

  • 'RHONJ' -- Table Flip

    5

    Teresa Giudice's table flip from season 1 of RHONJ will live in infamy. Danielle putting the book on the table, crazy Caroline telling Jaqueline "You're hurting my parents", and Teresa's flip-out -- it was a dinner worth a million words.
