Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson
"No more friendship... I'm done." If those words sound familiar to Real Housewives fans, that's because they are. Only two days after the longtime bond between Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice's was shattered on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the close friendship between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney came crumbling down on Tuesday's Orange County season finale. And these are only two of the many platonic break-ups the Bravo franchise has endured in recent years. If The Bachelor has a horrible track record with romantic break-ups, The Real Housewives franchise is the queen bee when it comes to ending friendships. Need proof? Look no further than the five worst spats in Housewives history:
Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga
Forget Betty Draper. Caroline Manzo is the real hot mama of Sunday night TV.
Since The Real Housewives of New Jersey launched, the red-headed matriarch has often been the lone port of sanity in the crazy storm. Melissa is Jersey sexy, but come on, there are only so many air quotes one can use around the word "singing" to describe what she keeps doing in those recording sessions. Teresa?
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile have finally cleared up a very important question: Did Teresa Giudice change the pronunciation of her last name?
"When I met her 15, 16 years ago, it was [pronounced] joo-dice," Manzo says. (Teresa now says it much differently on Celebrity Apprentice.)
"I've never heard her introduce herself [this way]; it's new," her sister-in-law Melissa adds.

Real Housewives of New Jersey
Forget the dude on Homeland. The true prisoners of war last night were fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Held captive by the Garden State's battling harpies, viewers were subjected to a barrage of screaming matches, accusations and insults as the ladies wrapped up the second half of their season-ending reunion. What did we learn from this experience? Other than the fact that Andy Cohen deserves a Purple Heart for bravery ...

Teresa Giudice, clueless? She took to her Bravo blog after Sunday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey to write: "The whole time we were filming, I had no idea what other people were saying about me. I just assumed they were all my friends."
