Fans remember this famous episode from Season 5 a lot: Luann inviting a “pirate” who looked like Johnny Depp. back to her room and Carole spends time with Russ, her boyfriend at the time.
There was a lot of gossip about Luann as she tried to sneak in and keep it a secret, but of course everyone found out what was going on.
8 “The last stage” (S6, E20) – 8.0
Aviva Drescher throwing her leg in season 6 is one of the most memorable Real housewives scenes and it happened in this episode.
Aviva was incredibly angry with her co-stars and even shouted that she wasn’t fake but her leg was. It’s hard to remember anything else that happened in this episode because that wild moment was super entertaining.
7 “Blocked Conch (S7, E14) – 8.3
In this much-loved Season 7 episode set in Turks and Caicos, Bethenny and Ramona couldn’t see each other as Bethenny wanted to cook a nice lunch for everyone and Ramona said going to a restaurant would be a better idea. . It was really mean of Ramona because it meant a lot to Bethenny to cook for the group.
This episode is also memorable as the actors danced at the Conch Bar and Ramona tried to hit on the person who owned the bar.
6 “Invitation interrupted” (S8, E11) – 7.9
This Season 8 episode presented a lot of ups and downs in the actors’ personal lives. While Luann was recently dating Tom and was ecstatic about it, Jules Wainstein was stressed because his marriage was not going well and her then-husband left him with most of the childcare responsibilities.
The RHONY Big secrets of the cast included Bethenny learning that Tom was unfaithful, but at this point in the series, Luann was in love and thought everyone would be okay. It’s interesting to look back at this episode and how much things have changed since then.

In this Season 9 episode, Bethenny organized a trip to Mexico and wasn’t sure whether to invite Ramona because she was worried about how she would behave. This journey got off to a dramatic start before it even began.

Each season of RHONY Often has one wild episode that stands out above the rest, and this season 10 episode featured the cast going on a boat ride that ended up being scary and dangerous.
While many co-stars battled on their trip to Colombia, it’s the boat ride on the rocky waters that is unforgettable. Sonja Morgan peed in her swimsuit and while she kept saying something didn’t seem right, Tinsley Mortimer was totally calm.
3 “Life is not a cabaret” (S11, E15) – 8.5
From the greatest of Bethenny RHONY arguments, fans remember this one the most: when Bethenny yelled at Luann “Life is not a cabaret!” and told him to stop talking about it at every opportunity.
Yelling at someone is rarely the best way to get a point across, but Bethenny was so frustrated that she just yelled at her co-star for a long time, while Luann looked utterly shocked and confused. Luann and Bethenny’s friendship was definitely in dire straits in Season 11.
2 “Remember Your Blue Stone Mansions” (S12, E14) – 7.6
RHONY Fans love every episode that takes place in Dorinda’s Blue Stone Manor home, but there is often more to the drama than the good times. It was a difficult episode to watch, as Dorinda upset Luann so much that she wanted to go home, which is really a big deal when everyone is supposed to get together for a fun getaway in the Berkshires. Dorinda tried to take credit for Luann’s song “Feelin ‘Jovani”, and Luann was not thrilled with it.
The cast had one last night at Dorinda’s, and Leah was angry that she had invited a bartender named James but Dorinda was telling her a lot of stories. It wasn’t the most notable season on the show, but it was an entertaining yet wild episode.

In Season 13’s top-rated episode, the cast members celebrated Galentine’s Day because they did some body art and had a blast.
