The Real Housewives’ 2017 Halloween Costumes Are As Ridiculous As You’d Expect
With Halloween on a Tuesday this year, it's tough knowing when to celebrate. Thankfully, the Real Housewives stars are always looking for a reason to celebrate any occasion. Plenty of Real Housewives have been rocking Halloween costumes since the weekend before October 31, and some of their outfits are, as expected, pretty over-the-top.
Loyal Housewives viewers are well-aware that the cast members are all about themed events. Plus, they have higher budgets than most people and their own glam squads, so of course the ladies were dressed to the nines with their Halloween ensembles.
Based on some thorough social media stalking, a lot of the women started celebrating before Halloween. It makes sense. Not only were there parties on the weekend before the holiday, but they also get an excuse to wear more than one costume, which is always the best way to go.
Even though most people would love to be the Real Housewives for Halloween (or any other day of the year for that matter), the Housewives themselves got pretty creative with their looks. From rappers to mythical beasts, here's what the stars of the Real Housewives franchise dressed up as for Halloween 2017.
Cynthia Bailey As 50 Cent
Wait. 50 Cent, is that you? No, that's actually Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey passing for the rapper's doppelgänger. Not only does Cynthia look the part, but "50 Cynt" is just way to good an opportunity to pass up.
Dorit Kemsley As Wonder Woman
Dorit Kemsley and her son Jagger coordinated their looks with superhero costumes. Dorit as Wonder Woman and Jagger as Spider-Man made them the perfect Halloween duo.
Ramona Singer As Britney Spears
Considering that Ramona Singer is always celebrating a "renewal" of some sort with the different reincarnations of her image on Real Housewives of New York City, it makes sense for her to channel the queen of reinventing herself: Britney Spears. Plus, she's Brit in one of her prime phases: "Oops!... I Did It Again." Iconic.
Margaret Josephs As Dolly Parton
Margaret Josephs and her husband, Joe Benigno, channeled Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers from their "Islands In the Stream" duet.
Meghan Edmonds As A Unicorn
Meghan Edmonds was on board with the unicorn trend this Halloween.
Luann de Lesseps As Countess Dracula
Thankfully, Luann de Lesseps kept the countess title around for Halloween. She even invented her own costume: Countess Dracula. Or at least that's what she is according to her Instagram caption. It kind of looks like she's a cross between a vampire, Marie Antoinette, and a countess, but it's definitely working for her. And look at all these Luanns she met!
NeNe Leakes As Pest Control
After beefing with Kim Zolciak over a video that Kim's daughter Brielle Biermann recorded that claimed there are roaches at NeNe's home, NeNe decided to go as pest control with her husband, Gregg Leakes, dressed up a roach.
It's a little unclear what Bethenny was for Halloween, but it is very clear that she went all in with her costume (and even the background for this photo). She could be Barbie, Elle Woods from Legally Blonde, Kameron Westcott from Real Housewives of Dallas, or someone else, but she is definitely slaying.
Kim Zolciak As A Playboy Bunny
Meanwhile, Kim and her husband, Kroy Biermann, paid tribute to the late Hugh Hefner and his Playboy empire with their coordinating costumes.
Teresa Giudice As A Soldier
Teresa Giudice rocked camouflage print and some bright red lipstick for her Halloween look.
Porsha Williams As A Mouse
Porsha Williams is a mouse... duh! She looked absolutely adorable in her ensemble.
Melissa Gorga As A Ringleader
Melissa Gorga made it clear that she calls the shots with her ring leader costume.
Kandi Burruss As It
Wow. That is some killer makeup. Kandi Burruss was very topical with this costume choice.
Kenya Moore As A Victoria's Secret Model
Kenya Moore showed off her best Victoria's Secret runway walk in this Instagram video, giant wings and all.
Gizelle Bryant As Foxxy Cleopatra
The Real Housewives of Potomac star went all in for her ensemble.
The Real Housewives got really into Halloween this year and there will be even more costumes to come... most likely.
