The Real Housewives franchise is one of the most popular reality TV shows of its time. The series has spawned spin-offs, created moguls, and become a worldwide sensation.
Despite its popularity, the Housewives don’t always get the recognition they deserve. Some critics condemn the show, claiming it’s nothing more than trash TV. Regardless of the criticism, the ladies are willing to return season after season, and fans of the shows are as loyal as they come.
What better way to honor the women who make the show a success than by awarding the cast?
Last night on Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen revealed the winners in the 2nd annual Real Housewives Awards.
And without further ado, the winners are:
Rookie of the Year: Shannon Beador (Orange County)
Best Supporting Agitator: Collette Dubrow (Heather’s daughter on Orange County)
OMG Moment: Lisa Rinna (Beverly Hills) for freaking out during a nice dinner in Amsterdam.
