Shady, shady, shady. Bravo's Real Housewives franchise has been home to many crazy dramatic storylines about shady ladies, ladies throwing shade and the men that out shady their wives/significant others. When it comes to lying, Real Housewives men may outdo their female counterparts, be it about medical records (yes, we're talking about Brooks Ayers), cheating or finances (so many, where do we begin?).

Brooks Ayers and Vicki Gunvalson were at the center of The Real Housewives of Orange County season 10 with a storyline about Brooks' cancer. Rather, with a storyline about whether or not Brooks actually has cancer. Meanwhile across the country in The Real Housewives of New Jersey land, Teresa Giudice is serving a prison sentence for fraud charges racked up by her and husband Joe Giudice. Joe claims Teresa didn't know what he was doing.

But Brooks and Joe aren't the only Real Housewives significant others viewers side-eye suspiciously from afar. Below, take a walk down memory lane as we rank The Real Housewives' shady significant others.
