Ramona Singer, Melissa Gorga, Porsha Stewart, Real Housewives


The TV world has the Emmys. Movies have the Oscars. Bravo's Real Housewives? The Real Housewives Awards, naturally.

E! News had the scoop on the first annual awards honoring the lovely ladies of Bravo's Real Housewives franchise with categories such as Loveliest Locks, Favorite Quote and Best Supporting Agitator.

No surprise here that one-liner queen Ramona Singer of Real Housewives of New York is in the running for Favorite Quote for yelling "Calm down, take a Xanax" at fellow Housewife Aviva Drescher while in St. Barths.

 "So many people have tweeted me to tell me how much they love that expression and have actually started using it themselves! Maybe it will even go in the urban dictionary like ‘Turtle Time' did," Ramona told E! News. "Turtle Time, of course, means drinking Pinot Grigio, having fun with your friends and dancing!"

Ramona's up against Lisa Vanderpump, Milania Giudice, Lisa Hochstein, Heather Dubrow and NeNe Leakes.

In the Rookie of the Year category it's Aviva, Carlton Gebbia, Carole Radziwill, Kenya Moore, Heather Thomson, Lydia Mclaughlin, Joyce Giraud and Porsha Stewart.

"It's always tough being the new kid on the block, but I think I did a good job holding my own," Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha told E! News. "Thanks to Bravo for recognizing my strength and perseverance."

Melissa Gorga of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame is in the running for Loveliest Locks.

"Nothing can come between a Housewife and her hair! There is some major competition in this category, but I'm excited to be nominated and of course my hairstylist is thrilled!" she said.

Melissa's competition includes RHONY's Aviva, Real Housewives of Orange County's Alexis Bellino, RHOBH's Joyce and Kyle Richards and RHOA's Cynthia Bailey.

The Best Supporting Agitator category features "friends" of the Housewives, not main cast members. Of course, Kim D. is in the running for her work on Real Housewives of New Jersey. "I think it's fab to have the awards and I appreciate the nod for a job well done," Kim said. "If I win, I'd be happy to accept it!"

In the Most Memorable Outfit category there are some shockers, along with some beautiful outfits. Joanna Krupa is nominated for her wedding gown she wore on Real Housewives of Miami.

"My wedding was everything that I dreamt of as a little girl and more—it was inspired by Stephanie Seymour in the "November Rain" video. I wanted my dress to be non-traditional and go down in history as the most original wedding dress ever. I am honored Bravo included me in their awards as my dress meant everything to me." 

Can she beat Teresa Giudice's all purple Victoria Gotti lunch outfit? Sonja Morgan's snow hat? Other nominees include Gretchen Rossi's proposal dress, Kenya's Phaedra outfit and Yolanda Foster's white pants.

Head on over to BravoTV.com to cast your vote. The Real Housewives Awards winners will be announced on Sunday, March 23 starting at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
