The following commentary is courtesy via Good Tea:
I don't consider myself an expert of anything, but if there was one thing that I specialise in, it's the Real Housewives franchise. I've been watching these middle aged cougars get drunk and fight with each other since Kim Zolciak had Big Poppa and Vicki Gunvalson had her old face. Throughout the years drinks have been thrown, wigs have been pulled, marriages have fallen apart and Housewives have been dragged across the reunion floor. With every growing year, our drama tolerance as viewers evolves and puts more pressure on these women to deliver some good TV. 2017 hasn't been the best year for the franchise but we've still got some moments that can be filed away into the Housewives History books. This is the Good Tea 2017 Real Housewives Franchise Rankings. Enjoy bitches!

7. The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12
Coming off the heels of their most dramatic season yet and hearing Andy Cohen tease this season as one of the best, made season 12 all that more disappointing. If any other Housewives show had delivered this they may have ranked higher, but the fact that the OC was this bad, deserves last place. The cold war between Vicki, Tamra and Shannon made it pretty difficult to have an entertaining show when the three main ladies refused to film or even speak with each other. The new addition of Peggy and the return of Lydia also didn't do anything to save the show and just set us in for weeks of boredom and desperation for the show to return to it's wine tossing, cancer days. Plus did they really have to go to Iceland?

The whole season revolved around Shannon's unstable and erratic behaviour towards the other women because of her dissolving marriage, which was pretty much the only source of drama. We also had to sit through a second fake cancer storyline that wasn't nearly as scandalous as the first. The disappointment of Peggy, the hatred between the longest running cast members and hearing Lydia chant about cutting her husbands balls off, made the show almost impossible to watch. We did get to witness the epic Quiet Woman dinner which is the silver lining on this boring season.

6. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2
Potomac is different than it's sister shows. The girls don't have the same level of coin and the drama isn't up to par, but after their stale first season these Maryland girls really stepped up their game. It reminds me of vintage RHOA, just less wear pulling and more shade. This show specialises in messy relationships from Robyn still living with her ex, Charisse's confusing marriage and Ashley's fiery May-December relationship with her husband Michael.

In the drama department Ashley tried her best to get her messy in hands in everybody else's business, Gizelle and Monique had a shade filled feud and there was a whole lot of controversy around Charisse's potential fireman boyfriend. Although they abandoned their stupid etiquette theme, the rivalry of the trip hosts in Bermuda was a reminder of the society life that this group lives in. These ladies rank at second last because the show is good and shady but it's not supplying me with the life that I receive from the other shows. Better luck next year wigs!

5. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7
If I'm being honest, Beverly Hills has been down hill ever since Brandi Glanville left. All the ladies have been playing nice for the cameras, which only left Rinna to provide us with some actual entertainment. From her comments about Kim's sobriety, to her xanax smoothies, to asking Dorit if she did coke, Rinna tried her best get her QVC covered hands messy! LVP and Kyle managed to sit by and cash heavy checks for doing basically nothing. These girls should implement the New York system and get paid for episode, so that the girls have to deliver to get some coin.

Aside from Rinna running around accusing people of doing drugs, this was the season where everything got blown out of proportion. Dorit's debut drama was fighting with Erika over not wearing underwear in front on her husband, in the prolonged cold war that housewives fans know as PantyGate. Friend of Eden Sassoon proved by the end of the season that she really wasn't really a friend of anyone after she inserted herself in to Kim and Kyle's drama because of her own addictive past. It was like a watching a massive yawn. This season wasn't totally unbearable, but it was repetitive, slow and lacked what iconic housewives seasons are made of.

4. The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 
After a few lukewarm seasons of New Jersey it seemed like the show may have been on it's last legs and it was evident that Bravo knew that. Teresa's long time nemesis Danielle Staub was brought back in the role of her most trusted confidant after 8 years of bitter feuding. Teresa & Melissa were placed in the middle while everyone's loyalties were tested. Cakes were thrown, chairs were flipped, glasses were smashed and Dolores called Danielle a scumbag. She should really capitalise off that because I would love a "Crazy Scumbag" t-shirt for Christmas.

Siggy and Margaret's feud was also a key factor in the group's loyalty shifts this season. Siggy's sensitive temperament didn't go well with Marge's sarcastic sense of humour but they managed to resolve their beef until the pigtailed newbie brought up Hitler's name which caused Siggy to call her anti-semitic. There was nothing to lose by these two fighting, but the hatred did seem more skewed on The Sig's side which always made me feel like I was missing a piece of the puzzle. Of course Kim D was back to spread more rumours about Teresa's infidelity this season which resulted in another iconic (and maybe final) POSCHE fashion show. This season the girls returned to their violent roots which was refreshing to see.
