This season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills had everyone wondering: “Who’s The Most Manipulative Of Them All?” And you may ask yourself, is it really Lisa Vanderpump? And you may ask yourself, what about some of the others?
After an entire season speculating about how manipulative Lisa could possibly be, we decided to examine other drastic moments of manipulation littering the history of Reality TV.
Below is Reality Tea’s list of some of our favorite examples of manipulation on reality TV!

Apollo Nida's Secret Life
Apollo claimed Kenya had sent him salacious texts and tried to arrange a hook-up with him during a trip to LA, causing an irreparable rift between Kenya and his wife Phaedra. Later Apollo admitted he lied about the whole thing! Too bad multiple seasons of Real Housewives Of Atlanta revolved around this mess!
Who Said Intervention Again?
Mike Shouhed Marries Jessica Parido
Mike was reportedly always cheating on Jessica - possibly even propositioning GG! Several of his Shahs of Sunset co-stars boycotted his lavish Bravo wedding, rightly so, because mere months after saying "I Do" Jessica filed for divorce. That's one sham of a showmance that barely survived the season!
Kelsey Hides Affair Behind RHOBH!
Kelsey Grammer barely acted the part of loving husband Camille's during season 1 of RHOBH, because he was cheating on her the entire time, and using the show to hide his affair! He later said allowing Camille to use his fame to get on the show was his "parting gift" to her.

Adriana de Moura's Fake Wedding
Adriana threw a lavish fairytale wedding on Real Housewives Of Miami - then we found out she'd been married to Fredric the entire time, and had been hiding her secret marriage from everyone - even her BFF Lea Black! While pretending to be single Adriana even convinced Lea to introduce her to other men!
Bethenny Gets Lost At Sea
Kyle Vs. Camille - S1 Of RHOBH
Did she Say it? Did Kyle call Camille "insecure" or "insignificant" behind her back? The entire first season of RHOBH centered around whether or not Kyle said it. Camille thinks Kyle said it. Kyle just wants Camille to "shut the f--k up!" Meanwhile Taylor is gonna go Oklahoma on someone's ass.

Gretchen Proposes To Slade!
What exactly is going on with Slade and Gretchen? The couple was secretly engaged, but hiding it to avoid speculation due to Slade's back child support. They filmed not one, but two proposals for Real Housewives Of Orange County (only one made the show) - all in the hopes of landing a spinoff! And they're Still. Not. MARRIED. At least we don't think...
If ever there's a surprise you don't want to get on your vacation it's Jill Zarin's unexpected arrival!
She "crashed" Ramona's True Renewal vacation, (even though she was fighting with Bethenny), causing Alex McCord to go into hives and conniption fits. All this as punishment for Bethenny trying to branch out on her own Skinnygirl? Too bad that didn't work out... Baaaawby - why don't they like me?! Send them some fahbricks!
Brandi Glanville Accuses Adrienne Maloof Of Suing Her
Was Melissa Gorga A Stripper?
Without a doubt Real Housewives Of New Jersey is all manipulation, all the time! From Danielle's dastardly past, to the Manzo-family rift, to the ever-present financial and legal issues of the Giudices. However the most insane season of RHONJ centered around a Posche Fashion show, Two Kims, and Teresa accusing Melissa of being a stripper by inviting her ex-boss to confront her - and who put her up to it?!
Just How Fake Are The Kardashians?
Kim allegedly went on a trip to Dubai to make serious decisions about her fake marriage to Kris Humphries. Reality Tea discovered most of the Dubai footage used for Keeping Up With The Kardashians was filmed in a Hollywood soundstage!

Did Kim Zolciak Lie About Cancer?
Her first season of RHOA, Kim told Andy she started wearing wigs after a cancer scare. When pressed about this so-called cancer, Kim found herself tripping over her words and finally admitting it wasn't true... "It was just so absurd," recalls Andy of the moment Kim got caught lying. Girl - why so coy and embarrassed about some damn wigs?!
Brooks Ayers Fakes Cancer?
Kim & Big Poppa
Kim Z claimed she was no kept woman or mistress, because her very married lover Big Poppa was getting divorced to marry her. We're still waiting on that damn divorce... Also, remember when Kim got evicted from the house she pretended to own and she and Kroy were forced to move back into the condo Big Poppa bought her!?
Kristen Doute Cheating With Jax Taylor
Taylor's $60,000 Birthday Party!
Pretending to be a wealthy heiress to the Ford Motors family, Taylor threw a $60,000 birthday party for her daughter Kennedy! A few months later it was discovered they were flat broke, and she filed for divorce from Russell alleging spousal abuse. We're still trying to figure out the truth...
