A Brief History of Real Housewives Calling Each Other the C-Word

There's no word more divisive in the Real Housewives lexicon. 

Throughout Bravo's history, Real Housewives have hurled insults like "slut pig" and "trash box" at one another, but there's no word more catastrophic than the c-word. Once uttered, it's been known to induce gasps, turn dinner parties into mayhem, and—sometimes—end friendships.

1.  Dorit vs. Camille

Not all Real Housewives are aware of the power of the c-word. One such instance was on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 when Dorit Kemsley called Camille Grammer "a stupid c---." Fans are still waiting to see the fallout of this exchange, but based on Camille's immediate reaction, it won't be good.

2.  Kelly vs. Shannon

Kelly Dodd pulled out the c-word at a sushi dinner in The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11. While she did so quite intentionally, she did not foresee the OC meltdown it would induce.

3.  LeeAnne vs. Cary

The Real Housewives of Dallas asked for honesty in Season 2, and they sure got it. At an Honest Tea, LeeAnne Locken called Cary Deuber a "condescending c---." Extra points for alliteration? 

4.  Erika and Brandi

It's important to know that some Housewives use the c-word in casual conversation, as well as a term of endearment. Erika Girardi and Brandi Glanville are both examples of this. Erika proudly wears a necklace that says "C---y" in Season 6 and Brandi calls Carlton Gebbia "a good c---" in Season 4.

5.  Teresa vs. Danielle

Perhaps the first time Bravo fans heard the bleeped word was in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 2 reunion. Teresa Giudice shouted it as she attempted to push her way over to Danielle Staub, making Andy Cohen  collateral damage
