Looks like The Bachelor isn't the only reality series that can't seem to keep the love going.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and her NFL star husband Kordell Stewart announced today that they were divorcing, placing them in the long line of Real Housewives stars who haven't been able to keep their marriages together.

A possible curse? Maybe. Here are five of the nastiest Housewives splits:

1. Camille and Kelsey GrammerReal Housewives of Beverly Hills: We watched their marriage fall apart in season one after 16 years and two kids together, a situation that was made worse when it was discovered that the Boss star had a mistress on the side. The mistress, Kayte Walsh, is now his wife, and since season one it's been a long line of bad parenting accusations, messy financial settlements and Kelsey supposedly banning their kids from saying Camille's name in his home.
