Nene Leakes X Claudia Jordan Reading!
First, we have the classic showdown between NeNe Leakes and Claudia Jordan on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
While Claudia may have been a one-season wonder, she made the most of her time on RHOA and read NeNe DOWN!

Kim & Kourtney Kardashian Kickin' It!
Switchin’ over to the Kardashians for some sisterly drama, who can forget when Kim and Kourtney got physical on Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
Notably, the fact that Kourtney literally slapped Kim’s makeup off of her face (see the wall) is one of the most memorable parts of this conflict.

New York's Reaction To Her Second Elimination...
A rather emotionally-charged confrontation went down right before Tiffany “New York” Pollard was eliminated from Flavor of Love 2, as she was livid that the rapper sent her home for a second time.
However, Pollard made it clear that she wasn’t fazed… only to wind up crying in the car.
Every moment that Tiffany “New York” Pollard had was significant but when Flav eliminated her for THE SECOND TIME? Whew. https://t.co/M7CHBXfZhD pic.twitter.com/25yraWiadq

But Also New York In GENERAL!
Of course, Pollard also came thru and delivered reality TV GOLD during her confrontation with Gemma Collins on Celebrity Big Brother.
While she made her feelings clear to Gemma, Tiffany truly let loose in the confessional booth.

Candiace Age-Drops Charrisse!
Over on The Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace Dillard Bassett ripping into Charrisse Jackson-Jordan during her freshman season snatched lives!
Candiace let it be known that if she’s gonna get called a child, she’ll unapologetically respond by calling the others “old women.” Oop!
Ahhh! I love Sunday nights on Bravo! #RHOP and #Married2Med
Here’s a flashback of Candiace vs Charrisse, season three 💀💀 pic.twitter.com/vNJou6qMqp

Ray J, Princess And An Unexpected Night Swim
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood gave us a situation between Ray J and Princess Love, his future wife.
A nasty breakup ended with Princess Love in the pool and Ray J hopping away while proclaiming, “I’m out.”
When Ray J skipped and said “bye” after he pushed Princess in the pool 😭😭😭😭 https://t.co/LTyTGkbvBV pic.twitter.com/AXxi7hbloV

Now Teresa Giudice X Danielle Staub...
Of course, there’s also the infamous table flip, which went down during Season 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
While Teresa Giudice was going in on Danielle Staub by calling her a “prostitution wh*re,” she lost her cool and wound up shattering a plethora of plates.
Very basic, but the #RHONJ season 1 finale with the table flip was monumental for Housewives as a franchise and Teresa Giudice🍷 pic.twitter.com/Yvfj1WUJD9

Phaedra Parks Taking Kenya Moore To The Library
Taking it back to RHOA, Phaedra Parks unleashing her wrath on Kenya Moore back in the day is definitely burned into pop culture.
After all, Phaedra truly went for the jugular.

When Nina Parker Interviewed Joseline Hernandez
At the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Season 5 Reunion, Joseline Hernandez didn’t hold back against host Nina Parker.

Evelyn Lozada X Tami Roman Let Loose!
Evelyn Lozada calling Tami Roman a “non-mother**king-factor b***h” on Basketball Wives also deserves a shoutout.
Evelyn definitely struck a nerve, and she gave a gworlz a new insult to use!

Wrapping with some good ol’ Bad Girls Club, perhaps the juiciest altercation on the series went down between Priscilla and Judy during Season Seven.
BGC is all about drama and fights, and this showdown really took the beef to new heights!
