19 Times Lisa Rinna Proved She's Still Hot AF

"Were people doing coke in your bathroom?" Lisa Rinna asks Dorit Kemsley in what has become one of the most memorable scenes of "Housewives" history.

The "Real Housewives" of Bravo never fail to bring the juiciest, craziest, most ridiculous feuds to small screens across America, and this year, they simply outdid themselves.

From PantyGate to BunnyGate, from cocaine accusations to prostitution accusations, from regretful trips to Mexico to regretful walks down the aisle -- here are the 11 most explosive "Housewives" blowouts of 2017.


PantyGate plagued all of the ladies of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," but it was the source of the most tension for Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley.

Erika accused Dorit and her husband PK of making her look like a whore after she accidentally flashed her lady bits while sitting down in a short, tight dress. Dorit thought it'd be funny to gift Erika a set of drawers, but the joke did not go over well in the slightest.

'Were People Doing Cocaine in Your Bathroom?'

Lisa Rinna might hold the crown for most outrageous, poorly timed accusation of the year. During an already explosive dinner in Hong Kong (PantyGate was in full force), she decided to bring up a dinner party Dorit threw months prior that was clearly weighing heavily on Rinna.

"What I wanna know is when I was at your dinner, you all got up and left," Rinna said to Dorit. "Everyone said, 'Dorit, you need to get touched up.' And you all left at the table. Why?"

A half-confused Dorit replied, "After dinner? We do that after we're done with dinner."

"Were people doing coke in your bathroom?" Rinna blurted out. "All you have to say is no." Yep, she went there.


During "RHOBH" Season 7 reunion, former housewife Kim Richards was on the brink of making amends with Rinna when she pulled a move that left even Kyle Richards in shock.

Kim brought out the stuffed bunny Rinna had gifted her for her new grandson and she gave it back.

"I brought the bunny because I never gave it to my grandson. I didn't feel like it had good energy," Kim said to Rinna surrounded by a very confused Andy Cohen and equally confused Housewives. "Sorry. So I think what I should do is give it to you, and when you are in a better place, maybe you can give it back to me, because right now, I don't feel like it was given to me with the right energy."

It was the first time in "Housewives" history that Rinna was left speechless. She walked off set in tears, then returned to let Kim know she was a "really sick woman."

'RHOA' Explosive Reunion with Phaedra Parks

During the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" Season 9 finale, Kandi Burruss confronted Phaedra Parks about her role in spreading a vicious rape rumor she had been combating all season long. The rumor was that she and her husband, Todd Tucker, said they wanted to drug Porsha Williams to take advantage of her.

Porsha revealed during the reunion that she first heard about the rumor from Phaedra, who claimed she heard it from Kandi firsthand.

"To say I would drug somebody -- there's multiple levels to that," an emotional Kandi said to Phaedra. "She, as a person who knows me, knows I don't do drugs or deal with anything with drugs, but then on top of that, as an attorney, why would you repeat to say somebody would drug somebody?"

Phaedra was subsequently fired from the Bravo reality show.

Luann's Wedding (and Divorce)

The clip above shows Bethenny Frankel at the "Real Housewives of New York" Season 9 reunion, insisting Tom D'Agostino's commitment to Luann de Lesseps was questionable -- and it was.

"It was like the weekend before the reunion, basically," Luann explained to Andy back in August after announcing their divorce. "Tom went out and he called up an old girlfriend and they met up with a group of people, and I didn't know about it. I found out about it the next day in the press, so that for me was the final straw. I was like, 'I can't do this anymore.'"

Luann married Tom on Jan. 1 of this year, and on Aug. 3, she announced they'd be divorcing. They were married for seven months.

'RHONY' Drunk Mexico Trip

Every single minute of this trip was filled with drunken arguments -- including Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer fighting over which room they'd stay in, and whether one of the show's stars tipped off Page Six on a story about Tinsley Mortimer -- but the best moment by far was Luann drunkenly falling into the bushes...and then again on the cobblestone.

Dorinda's 'Clip'

Dorinda Medley and the ladies of "RHONY" were at lunch in the Bronx discussing a ski trip to Vermont when Sonja brought up Dorinda's alleged interest in getting involved with her Tipsy Girl alcohol brand venture, claiming she had texts from Dorinda's boyfriend, John Mahdessian, to prove it. That's when Dorinda completely lost her marbles in the best way possible.

"I'd rather chew my left leg off than be part of Tipsy Girl," Dorinda yelled at Sonja, among other things.

"Clip! Clip! Clip! Clip!" Dorinda continued, accompanied by a hand gesture. Context clues lead us to believe she was trying to say, "Shut up."

Housewives fans everywhere were in pure internet bliss. Andy Cohen even tweeted, "The lunch in the Bronx is one for the 'RHONY' books."

This one didn't necessarily happen on air (yet), but it did rock the "RHOA" world.

Back in October, NeNe Leakes went off on Instagram after coming across a Snapchat video of Kim Zolciak's daughter, Brielle Biermann, criticizing her bathroom, which was shown to have bugs.

"We don't have roaches! If you found one, you brought it with you or it fell outta yo funky pussy," Leakes wrote in the since-deleted post. "Please know I will get you all the way together when you start f-cking wit me and mine! Go somewhere and let the air outta those fake lips, fake titties and fake ass because you will never be @kylejenner." Yes, she tagged Kylie Jenner incorrectly.

"You had to stoop so low and be so disgusting #racisttrash #jealous #KKK #thirsty you better run yo ass back to a child's place," she added.

NeNe then took the petty one step further and dressed up as an exterminator for Halloween, forcing her husband, Gregg Leakes, to dress as a roach.

Kenya Trashes Kim For 'Pimping Out' Brielle

At NeNe's all-white party during Season 10, Kim decided to ask Kenya Moore incessantly about her surprise marriage to businessman Marc Daly, who she insisted didn't exist.

"Where's your dick?" Kenya replied. "You clearly have a hard on for me. Worry about your life and the daughter you pimp out for John Legend tickets. See whose dick she'll suck for John Legend tickets, bitch."

"Let me tell you something, bitch, 'cause you will not talk about my f-cking daughter!" Kim yelled back as she had to be physically restrained from lunging at Kenya. "That's where you crossed the motherf-cking line! You don't talk about my f-cking daughter!"

Kim went from angry to hysterical in a matter of seconds and ended up throwing a glass in Kenya's direction. Kim's husband, Kroy Biermann, came rushing to the scene to rescue his wife from -- well -- assaulting Kenya.

Teresa Explodes Over Cheating Allegations

During Season 8, Teresa Giudice confronted "Real Housewives of New Jersey" nemesis Kim DePaola at her charity fashion show to ask why the latter told co-stars Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania that while Joe Giudice has been serving time in prison, Teresa has been "rekindling old flings." Kim D. has been stirring the same pot for years, once suggesting that Joe was unfaithful to Teresa.

"Kim, you're so f-cked up," Teresa said to the Posche boutique owner. "You talked about my husband two years ago. Did you see him f-cking another girl?"

"No, I did not," Kim admitted, adding that she spread the rumors because she "felt like it."

"You're a dirty bitch!" Teresa fired back.

"No, you're a dirty bitch. You're all dirty bitches," Kim replied, pointing to Teresa's surrounding cast mates. "I have girls, models here, that saw you out -- you're going out to clubs every freaking night."

"Oh, my God. Who gives a f-ck what I do?!" Teresa said. "You go out to clubs right? There's no chain on my foot. I can do whatever the hell I want. I go out with Siggy, I go out with Dolores. Who gives a f-ck what I do?! It's my f-cking business!"

Vicki 'Outs' Tamra's Husband

Tamra Judge shredded her "Real Housewives of Orange County" co-stars after they questioned her husband Eddie Judge sexuality.

During a Season 12 episode, Vicki Gunvalson, Gretchen Rossi, Kelly Dodd, Lizzie Rovsek and "RHOC" friend Ricky Santana were at a party when Gretchen asked Ricky, "Do you know if Eddie's gay or not?"

"I saw him making out with a guy." he said. "Making out with tongue." Ricky added that he thought "that was something they were just into," which is why he didn't tell Tamra.

"I don't want to know this. I don't want to know this. I don't want information in my brain that validates what was told to me," Vicki -- who had a falling out with Tamra over this same issue -- later told Bravo cams, but added: "Tell me more!"

"How orchestrated and wrong was that? The worst acting I've ever seen," Tamra wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post after the episode aired. "They are nothing but homophobic bullies that think it's OK to try and out a straight man, hoping to humiliate him. Well, guess what -- it didn't work! It's not the 1920s, and being gay is not something to be ashamed of or mocked. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Vicki was 100 percent behind this, and I hope she loses her job just like Phaedra."

And it all came to a somewhat cathartic explosion during the Season 12 reunion.
