There's no shortage of drama in The Real Housewives of Orange County, but these fights are some of the most explosive in the hit Bravo show's history. Seriously! 

1 /15: The bow incident

1/15 :The bow incident

Heather Dubrow throws a killer party, but if you mess it up she's going to let you have it, and this is what happened in Season 7 when one very rude guest (Sarah Winchester, Alexis Bellino's friend) broke the bow off her untouched cake.

This is one occasion when we definitely think the feud was warranted, because really, why would someone do that?

2 /15: Shannon Beador vs. Vicki Gunvalson

2/15 :Shannon Beador vs. Vicki Gunvalson

Then there's Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson's feud, which resulted in Beador taking to Facebook to share a 10-minute video, in which she lashed out at Gunvalson for her "lies."

"I'm so frickin' done talking about the Vicki-Brooks cancer lie nonsense, but I did just watch the Watch What Happens Live! special and I'm absolutely floored," she said, before going on to list the ways that Gunvalson's story just didn't add up. 

3 /15: Kiss and make up?

3/15 :Kiss and make up?

And if you thought these women had put aside their differences, you'd be so wrong, because Gunvalson basically waged war against Beador during the Season 11 premiere of The Real Housewives Of Orange County.

"Shannon can kiss my ass…how she's treating me is really despicable," Gunvalson stated. Yep, we're pretty sure these women are not going to let bygones be bygones anytime soon. 

4 /15: Gunvalson vs. Megan King Edmonds

4/15 :Gunvalson vs. Megan King Edmonds

Brooks Ayers' cancer diagnosis (and verity of it) caused a lot of blowouts on Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and while Gunvalson was trying to defend her then-boyfriend, Meghan King Edmonds was caught in the cross fire. 

During Tamra Judge's sex party, Gunvalson let her feelings towards Edmonds be known, telling her to "Lower your eyes because you're very evil." Um, what?

5 /15: Mistress problems

5/15 :Mistress problems

Shannon Beador and her husband David made the decision to share their marriage troubles with the world and were open about David's infidelity with Nicole McMackin. However, Beador went head-to-head with her husband's mistress, McMackin, when she had the gall to call her up and tell her that her husband no longer wanted to be with her, and that he wanted to marry her instead. 

Speaking during an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Beador touched on the conversation, saying, "In that conversation, I wanted to say certain things but I didn't. I said, 'I want my family back.' Her response was, 'He's obsessed with me! He wants to marry me! I don't even know the guy,' and it was not — it wasn't a kind conversation.

"I don't think people understand the level of hurt," Beador added.

6 /15: Shit-stirrer

6/15 :Shit-stirrer

During an interview with E! News, Gunvalson referred to Tamra Judge as a "shit-stirrer."
"I think that's how she wants to be portrayed, as a lasher-outer or a shit-stirrer or whatever people want to call it," Vicki said. "She did it to Alexis [Bellino], she did it to Gretchen [Rossi], she did it to Jeana [Keough]. She's done it to every single cast member. Who does she have left? She goes after me because I'm the OG of the OC, so she's going to try to go after me when she can."

7 /15: The limo fight

7/15 :The limo fight

Before Tamra Judge and her ex-husband, Simon Barney, decided to get a divorce, they had one of the most insane blowouts in the back of a limo. All their troubles came to a head when Judge suddenly shouted, "F— you. F— you. I want a divorce."

It was probably one of the most intense scenes we've seen on the show, and the emotion is so raw. 

8 /15: Co-parenting fails

8/15 :Co-parenting fails

Tamra Judge previously proved that she isn't a fan of her ex-husband's new girlfriend, Catushia Ienni — especially not her parenting skills. 

According to Radar Online, Judge left a scathing comment about Ienni's parenting style on Nik Richie's Instagram. She wrote, "My ex's 'girlfriend' writes me notes on my daughter’s homework telling me what MY daughter needs to do. Like I'm a moron. I so bad want to say STFU and have your own kids. But I don't… it's called boundaries. It’s great to have an involved step parent. But know your boundaries….bitch (sic)."

9/15 :Duped

When Gunvalson realized Ayers had been caught in a cancer lie, she apologized for being duped, but she did not apologize for lying about Ayers' cancer in the first place, something which Heather Dubrow took issue with. 

At Radar Online's 6th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, Dubrow revealed how she really felt about her former friend.

"We're all over her," she said. "We are over the lies, and we are over the propaganda tour, and we are all over the whole thing." She then added, "It really sucks what she's done, and I will tell you what I really don’t like. What I don’t like is the bullshit apology that isn’t really an apology. It's an apology for being duped."

10 /15: Alexis Bellino's email

10/15 :Alexis Bellino's email

There's never any lack of drama in the Real Housewives, as former Housewife Alexis Bellino once sent an email blasting Tamra Judge for making a "mockery" of Christianity, as well as being her "biggest harasser."

11 /15: Ditched!

11/15 :Ditched!

In 2013, Gretchen Rossi unleashed her wrath on Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson after they ditched her in Mexico, and the feud escalated when Judge and Gunvalson began laughing at Rossi because she was so angry, and really, the whole thing was pretty comical. 

12 /15: Kicked out

12/15 :Kicked out

In comparison to the other housewives, we have to say Heather Dubrow has a pretty even temper, but she once got so furious with Shannon Beador that she kicked her out of her house after accusing her of gossiping about her marriage

13 /15: Monster mom

13/15 :Monster mom

It's no secret that Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Judge are not going to be BFF's anytime soon, especially after all the drama that went down with them, including the time that Rossi took a stab at Judge's parenting. Wowzers. 

14 /15: Mom and daughter fights

14/15 :Mom and daughter fights

Are there any moms and their daughters who don't occasionally have a fallout? Probably not, but on The Real Housewives of Orange County things are done a little bit differently, as proven by Vicki Gunvalson and her daughter Briana Culberson.

Culberson made it perfectly clear that she wanted nothing to do with Gunvalson's then-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, and the mother-daughter duo got into some pretty heated fights because of it

15 /15: Drinks flying

15/15 :Drinks flying

We can't even remember the reason why Tamra Judge and Jeana Keough were fighting, but it happened during the Season 6 "cast reunion," and resulted in Judge throwing a drink in Keough's face
