Ranking of All the Times the Real Housewives Were Shady Ice Queens

It’s no secret the Real Housewives know a thing or two about shade. Over the years and as seasons continue, it seems like the women develop even more impressive shade skills. They definitely aren’t afraid to channel their inner mean girl.

That brings us to this much-needed ranking of all the times the Housewives were shady ice queens. Of course, there are an infinite amount of these specific moments, making it impossible to list all of them. So, we’re including some of the most memorable ones that fans will never forget — and some of our favorites.

As you’ll notice, several moments from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 scored quite a few of the top spots. That’s not because it’s our favorite (we’re a little partial to Real Housewives of New York City), but the California-based women were absolutely on fire with their shade this past season. How could we not mention them?

It’s unbelievable how much shade a group of women can throw, but Real Housewives wouldn’t be the same without it, that’s for sure. Now, let’s get to this very important ranking.

29. Kelly schools Bethenny
