We thought the latest RHONY love quadrangle was bad, but it’s not the only one

The Real Housewives franchise is never short of drama, but apparently the hit Bravo series is not too short on love triangles either.

More: Can RHONY please move on from this non-existent love square?

1. LuAnn de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino Jr.’s love quadrangle

One of the juiciest storylines playing out on The Real Housewives of New York this season has been the love triangle, uh, we mean love quadrangle, between LuAnn de Lesseps and her soon-to-be-husband, Tom D’Agostino Jr., as well as co-stars Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer.

The problem? Both Morgan and Singer have shared a romantic moment with D’Agostino Jr. at some point in the past before he was engaged to de Lesseps (and she claims she doesn’t care about his past anyway). This is all fine and well, except the women won’t stop talking about it, and it’s getting really awkward.

2. Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida

Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks, stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, went head-to-head after Moore flirted with Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida. However, things turned really nasty after Nida made up rumors that Moore had offered to give him oral sex when he bumped into her in Los Angeles.

He later admitted to having lied, but not before causing a massive feud between Parks and Moore. Yikes!

3. Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps and Harry Dubin

We’re dying to move on from the whole Morgan, Singer, de Lesseps and D’Agostino Jr. storyline, but strangely enough there seems to be a bit of a pattern between de Lesseps and Morgan sleeping with the same man.

Remember Morgan’s boyfriend, Harry Dubin (he was also married to former cast member Aviva Drescher)? Well, he is also de Lesseps’ ex, and in 2014, during Season 6 of The Real Housewives of New York, the two women got into a bitter fight over him.

The feud, which we feared would end their friendship for good, happened during Carole Radziwill’s 50th birthday party, when Dubin went home without Morgan (around the same time as de Lesseps left) causing speculation about whether he and de Lesseps ended up going home together — it’s maybe the most confusing Real Housewives storyline we’ve witnessed, and that’s saying something!

4. Ramona Singer’s new man kissed Mario Singer’s mistress

Ramona Singer had a hard time during her split from her cheating husband, Mario Singer. But it must have stung even more when she finally moved on with another man, New York City restaurateur, Peter Guimaraes, only to hear rumors that he too had ties to Mario’s mistress, Kasey Dexter.

During a Season 7 episode of The Real Housewives of New York, which featured Dorinda Medley’s big 50th birthday dinner, Carole Radziwill discovered that Guimaraes was rumoured to have kissed Dexter — and of course, she decided to share this information with LuAnn de Lesseps.

We wonder how much wine Ramona Singer had to drink to get over that report?

5. Karent Sierra, Rodolfo Jiménez and Ana Quincoces

Note the pattern with The Real Housewives of New York? But it’s not the only city to be plagued by reports of a love triangle, as The Real Housewives of Miami stars Karent Sierra, Rodolfo Jiménez and Ana Quincoces also found themselves in a sticky situation.

According to CelebBuzz, during Season 2, Quincoces accused Sierra’s telenovela star boyfriend, Jiménez, of sending her multiple flirty texts, including a hot Valentine’s Day text. However, Jiménez claimed that it was Quincoces who had been messaging him (why would he bother to reply if he was serious about his girlfriend?) and Sierra believed him, claiming that Quincoces was just another overeager fan.

Needless to say, Sierra finally realized Jiménez wasn’t the man for her, and they broke up later that year.

6. Jo De La Rosa, Slade Smiley and Gretchen Rossi

The Real Housewives of Orange County can also count itself among the most complicated love stories because Slade Smiley has been with more than one Real Housewives star.

After his engagement to Jo De La Rosa fell apart, he hooked up with Gretchen Rossi — which caused tension between the two women, as De La Rosa slammed Rossi for breaking the girl code. However, Rossi was quick to deny that she had met Smiley through De La Rosa, instead claiming that she had known him for many years after working with him in the real estate business.

Whatever happened, it was messy.
