The best thing about any iteration of The Real Housewives franchise is the drama that's constantly erupting between the ladies themselves. The second best thing is learning that if you have the dollars and look hard enough, you can find a seemingly never-ending array of body-con dresses to suit any and all occasions should you feel so moved.
The third best thing? It's a toss-up between the hair and the exploits of Lisa Vanderpump's original doggy-OG, Giggy.* I kid, I kid -- it's the romantic roller coaster rides of the shows' couples. They have been there and back again -- and we've been more than happy to go along with them!
We've seen good dates and bad dates and marriages we never thought would last and marriages that should have never started. Then again, we've been lucky enough to see true love as it blooms between couples who are sure to grow old together. Join us as we trot out five of our favorite Real Housewives couples. We'll dish on who we think will last, who is headed for disaster, and who is already there.
*Seriously though, I would be totally willing to watch just Giggy for a solid hour. Or 10.

Names: Teresa and Joe Guidice
Years active: 12
Likelihood of staying together: 68%
Team motto: All That Glitters Will Eventually Get You Thrown in Jail
Career highlight: The formerly small-chested Teresa desired larger jugs and opted for surgical enhancement. Though many crass jokes were made, it's clear Joe was into her body either way and simply wanted her to be happy.
Career low: Where to begin? Joe's cheating allegations? Teresa's unhinged relationship with her brother and sister-in-law? The fact that they both might be going to jail? It's all awful, but there was something beyond cringe-inducing about Joe's OBVIOUS phone call to another woman while the family went on a group road-trip.
