The 19 Best 'Real Housewives' Moments On 'Watch What Happens Live' — VIDEOS
Watch What Happens Live is honestly the best talk show on television. Aside from the free flowing alcohol and the daring questions asked by Andy Cohen, my favorite thing about it is the access to all of the Real Housewives cast members. These ladies are always down to show up, spill the tea, talk smack, and do just about anything to provide good TV. There have been so many crazy times over the years, so it's hard to narrow down the best Real Housewives moments on Watch What Happens Live, but somebody has to do it and that somebody is me.
Pretty much anything can happen during an episode of Watch What Happens Live. And since Andy Cohen is one of the main men behind Real Housewives, it makes sense that they are so comfortable on the set. They are really willing to go there more so than in interviews on other talk shows.
From giving outrageous answers to the ridiculous questions Andy asks, to crumbling under the pressure during a round of Plead the Fifth, to just blurting out random opinions during the silly games, there is always something crazy that's bound to happen when the Real Housewives are on WWHL.
1. When Brandi Glanville Insulted Joanna Krupa
This is definitely one of the most iconic moments from the show. Andy Cohen read a Twitter comment from Joanna Krupa about Brandi Glanville's husband leaving her, and Brandi immediately came at her with a lewd comment about her private area. Mark Consuelos literally fell on the floor and Andy's mom had no idea what she was supposed to do.
2. When Andy Cohen Gave Mama Joyce An Obama Vibrator
This is was so weird for so many reasons: Giving anyone a vibrator is awkward. Giving someone vibrator in front of her daughter is even more awkward. And giving someone a vibrator that looks like Barack Obama is incredibly awkward. Oh, and on top of all this, Mama Joyce seemed pretty into the gift, which left daughter Kandi Burruss stunned.
3. When Kim Zolciak Called In During NeNe Leakes' Appearance
God, I miss the good old days of seeing NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak going at it. Everything those two said to each other was truly iconic. When NeNe was a guest on WWHL, Kim called in and the two started arguing and things got so heated. I will never get over it.
4. When Vicki Explained Her Accidental Nude Instagram
Poor Vicki Gunvalson. She thought she was being sweet by posting a photo of the headphones Andy got her for a gift, but she didn't realize there was a reflection in the photo and that her bare boobs made the shot. It was so awkward watching Vicki try to explain this mishap.
5. When Sonja Showed Off Her Burlesque Skills
Sonja Morgan is everything. No one knew how to react when she opened Andy's show with a long burlesque performance. Was it sexy? Was it a joke? No one really knows, but every moment was glorious and magical.
6. When Vicki Revealed Her New Face
After being on a reality show forever, I guess nothing is really sacred anymore. So it's not super shocking that Vicki actually had a reveal for her newly surgically enhanced face on live TV.
7. When Kim Grilled NeNe During A Game Of Plead The Fifth
Kim and NeNe have so much chemistry. Whether they're getting along or arguing, it is always television gold. Kim had some questions that she wanted answered and didn't let NeNe cop out by pleading the fifth. She even got an apology from NeNe for her infamous "close your legs to married men" comment.
8. When Teresa Discussed Her Biggest Fear About Prison
It was not a fun night in the clubhouse when Teresa and Joe Giudice paid a visit right after their sentencing. Things took an even more somber turn when Tre got real and talked about being scared for her girls when she went away.
9. When Caroline Manzo Told Dina Manzo To Grow Up
The tension between Caroline and Dina Manzo was pretty serious, and Caroline just went off in this episode. She was not at all afraid to call out her sister for neglecting family functions and asking her to pick and choose who she has relationships with. It just got way too real and uncomfortable.
10. When Kenya Moore Performed "Gone With The Wind Fabulous"
Kenya always brings the entertainment. She turned her "gone with the wind fabulous" line into a song and of course she premiered it on WWHL. In all honesty the song was pretty catchy and Kenya really slayed.
11. When Kim Performed "Tardy For The Party"
Kim Zolciak really started it all when it came to Real Housewives singing. Her song "Tardy for the Party" is just classic. And there's nothing better than watching Kim power through a live performance.
12. When Danielle Staub Performed On The First Episode
This was on the very first episode of the show. Danielle Staub performing with her then-girlfriend Lori Michaels was pretty amazing. I expected a fun dance number from Danielle, not this serious ballad. It was the perfect way to start off the show.
13. When LuAnn de Lesseps Performed "Chic, C'est La Vie"
Every one of LuAnn de Lessep's songs are good. They are so catchy and fun! And when she performs you cannot help but bop along to the infectious beats.
14. When Kenya Shaded Naomi Campbell
Kenya always throws such great shade and it's not limited to people employed by Bravo. She had no qualms sharing her thoughts on Naomi Campbell after Andy read a comment from the super model.
15. When Andy Cohen Met Ayden Nida For The First Time
This was a great moment and it wasn't at all scandalous. It was so precious when Andy met Phaedra Parks' son Ayden for the first time on the show. He really needs to come back and play some games with Andy!
16. When LuAnn Premiered "Girl Code"
I live for these LuAnn songs. They are all just so great and "Girl Code" was just so shady that I could not help loving the performance. She always slays.
17. When Tamra Judge Flashed Andy
Andy may be gay, but he's had a lot of boob-related moments over the years. Tamra Judge got up and flashed Andy and he did not see it coming. Clearly, this was candid and unplanned.
18. When Vicki Talked About Brooks' Cancer Claim
Poor Vicki. This was a very awkward conversation to watch. She stopped by to talk about her on-again-off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers allegedly faking cancer and fabricating medical documents. Although cringeworthy to see, it was definitely an interview that needed to happen. (For the record, Brooks has stood by his claim that he does have cancer.)
19. When Ramona Received Her Lifetime Achievement Award
Ramona is always so entertaining. She couldn't even accept a lifetime achievement award with composure. She had no idea what the award meant or how she was supposed to react. It was so funny and adorable. Typical Ramona.
Thank god for Watch What Happens Live for giving the loyal fans an extra dose of some Real Housewives entertainment. These moments are iconic in reality television and I'm sure there will be plenty more to come.
