OC, Alexis Bellino, S5-8. We lived through Alexis' excruciating attempts at presenting and acting plus her new nose and ridiculous puppy birthday party. What she really stood out for though was being thick as shit and having a hideously controlling husband. But hey, she looks great in a bikini.
OC, Gretchen Rossi, S4-8. Gretchen was initially brought in as the gold-digging bimbo until her fiance sadly passed away. She didn't do herself any favors though by then hooking up with serial wife-slayer and super-douche Slade Smiley. She desperately tried to stay relevant—even staging a cringefest proposal, but ended up getting the boot along with Alexis at the end of S8.
OC, Tamra Judge, S3-Present. You can't help but just love Tamra. She may be mouthy but after what she went through with her truly vile ex-husband, her happiness with new hubby Eddie should be celebrated.
OC, Jo De La Rosa, S1-2. The original singing housewife, Jo left after breaking up with Slade Smiley (she was his first conquest) with her dignity intact after former friend Gretchen "broke the girl code". Intact until her appearance with Smiley on 'Date My Ex'.
NYC, Kelly Bensimon, S2-4. Kelly may look sexy, but anyone who saw her legendary melt down on Scary Island would know to steer 50 blocks clear. The woman is cray-cray.
NYC, Sonja Morgan, S3-Present. No-one thinks Sonja is as sexy as Sonja herself does. The woman is more than a teeny bit nuts, but good fun with it (plus I seriously want the name of her Dr / gossiping facialist because she looks amazing).
NYC, Luann De Lesseps, S1-Present. The Countess is way too classy to allow herself to be photographed in her underwear, but she can still bring the sexy. And we definitely know she has a naughty side (remember the sexy pirate?).
NYC, Bethenny Frankel, S1-Present. Our favorite returning housewife, Bethenny used the show to launch her Skinny Girl empire. Sexy in a ballsy NY kinda way, but with a bit of vulnerability too—who can forget her heartbreaking devastation over her break up with Jill Zarin?
NYC, Alex McCord, S1-4. No-one in the world thinks Alex is as sexy as her social climbing husband does. I mean literally no-one in the world except him thinks she is sexy.
ATL, Cynthia Bailey, S3-Present. Supermodel Cynthia knows how to work it and can turn on the sexy or the classy whenever she wants.
ATL, Kenya Moore, S5-Present. Twirling ex-beauty queen Kenya has an incredible body and she's not afraid to tell you about it. A little too nuts to be truly sexy though.
ATL, NeNe Leakes, S1-7. Ms NeNe is Queen of Shade and is Very Rich and extremely fabulous—we're not sure if she's sexy though, but frankly we were too scared not to include her!
ATL, Porsha Williams, S5-Present. Porsha definitely wears the lingerie well, its just that she spoils the sexiness when she opens her mouth.
ATL, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, S1-5. Whatever you feel about the wigs and the make-up, you can't deny that mother of six Kim has an incredibly sexy figure (even without photoshop).
NJ, Teresa Giudice, S1-Present. If you can overlook a whole heap of things, including the weird hairline, Teresa did have a really good job done on her boobies and for those alone she gets a mention.
NJ, Dina Manzo, S1-Present. Having originally left the show after falling out with her sister Caroline and then returning once Caroline had quit, Dina was not an obvious choice for this gallery. Then we came across this photo shoot and she was IN!
NJ, Melissa Gorga, S3-Present. She may not be able to sing but Melissa has one hot, sexy bod (causing husband Joe to implode if he doesn't get to release his poison regularly).
NJ, Teresa Aprea, S6-Present. One half of the firey twin duo who arrived to stir things up amongst the NJ ladies. Teresa is the twin married to Rino, who took exception to Victoria Gotti revealing that he had allegedly had an affair with the twins mom!
BH, Lisa Rinna, S5-Present. Not an obvious choice, but aside from her dated hair Lisa is looking HOT in this photo.
BH, Erika Girardi, S6-Present. They definitely needed an injection of sexy in Beverly Hills after Brandi's departure, and Erika sure fits the bill!
BH, Camille Grammer, S1-2. Camille still pops up as a friend (oh how we wish she would return permanently as the most passive aggressive person in the world that she was in S1), and the former playboy model definitely has the right assets to make this gallery!
BH, Brandi Glanville, S3-5. Some people don't find Brandi's outspoken-don't-give-a-fuck attitude sexy but we love it! Plus she really does have a smokin' hot body.
M, Adriana de Moura, S1-Present. Who knew Adriana had such an amazing figure? We're always so distracted by her elastic mouth and trying to block out her annoying voice it completely passed us by!
M, Larsa Pippen, S1. Larsa is a fan of the sexy selfie, and she's had a good tutor seeing as her BFF is Selfie Queen Kim K. Shame she had a boring kinda vacuous personality though, which is why she only appeared for one season.
M, Lisa Hochstein, S2-Present. It's kind of a given that Lisa would make the list of sexiest housewives seeing as she's married to a plastic surgeon who specializes in boobs!
M, Joanna Krupa, S2-Present. The embodiment of an incredibly sexy body being completely ruined by an ugly personality. Do NOT go near this girl when she drinks.
