There's no need to harp on how difficult 2020 was. So, instead, E! is focusing on the positive and looking back at what served as a beacon of light for many over the course of 2020: The Real Housewives.
From Potomac to Beverly Hills and everywhere in between, the various franchises have provided lighthearted entertainment when we really needed it. Where else does a night in the Hamptons end with a vibrator casually chilling in a bowl of chicken? Who else but a Bravo star could say, "Are you going to let my small disdain for your clothes get in the way of our friendship?" with a straight face? And most importantly, what else could you need in a TV show aside from an African grey parrot named T'Challa?
Of course, this is Real Housewives we're talking about, so yes, there were bouts of drama, too. And every once in a while, there came a mind-blowing confession, an unexpected throwdown or a historic first that truly stopped us in our tracks.
So, to celebrate the end of a year—and the beginning of one guaranteed to bring even more memorable moments—keep scrolling to see all the Real Housewives shockers that had our jaws dropping in 2020.
You can also catch up with your favorite Bravolebrities by streaming any of the many Real Housewives franchises available on Peacock.
