Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.

The most boring Real Housewives of all time:
I cannot think of one story line that Kristen Taekman had on Real Housewives of New York aside from Sonja Morgan misconstruing some comments she said in an interview about her toaster oven and getting Ramona Singer's hair wet. Other than that, I feel like she just chimed in on whatever was happening with the rest of the cast. In all honesty, Kristen seems like a very together person. She was just way too normal to be on a reality show and that is not a diss at all.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually really liked Lydia McLaughlin as a human being, but she definitely did not make for good TV. She did not bring much to the show other than her amazing mother who was stoned all the time. She was not a great fit for Real Housewives of Orange County - or reality TV in general.
You might be reading this one and asking yourself, “Who is DeShawn Snow?” She was a one and done on Real Housewives of Atlanta who appeared on season one. The only thing I remember about DeShawn was her disillusion that she could raise a million dollars in one night during a charity event at her own house. She didn’t have it in her to keep up with the much more feisty ladies in the ATL.
I feel like I keep saying this about all these ladies, but being a nice person is not enough to be a great reality TV star, let alone a Real Housewife. I don’t feel like Kathy Wakile ever did anything aside from talking about her cousin Teresa Giudice. Sure, she occasionally baked some stuff and tried to turn that into a career, but there was nothing at all entertaining about that.
The only thing Joyce Giraud provided on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was more controversy for Brandi Glanville. When I think back to Joyce’s one season on the show, I just remember Brandi drunkenly calling her “Jacqueline” and making comments about her not being able to swim based on racial stereotypes. Other than giving Kyle Richards a run for her money for the “best hair” superlative (in my mind), she really did not do much of anything.
Watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I could tell Kathryn Edwards started to pick up on the fact that she's boring so she just randomly stirred shit up to remind us that she was still there. She seemed like a nice lady when she told Erika Girardi that she could confide in her and then she immediately turned on her and snitched to Lisa Vanderpump. At this point, she is just trying out to be LVP's lapdog best friend and there is nothing interesting about that. And I did not get how she even fit into this group since was not actually friends with anyone before filming.
Charrisse Jackson Jordan
Charrisse Jackson-Jordan shared absolutely nothing with the viewers during the first season of Real Housewives of Potomac. She kept everything so private to a point where I was wondering if she knew that she was on a reality TV show. Then, she probably realized that she made no impression at all because she decided to talk about her husband’s absence after Andy Cohen made the concluding toast at the end of the reunion. Talk about a last ditch effort with that one.
I really don’t remember Cindy Barshop ever contributing anything to Real Housewives of New York. I actually kind of forgot that she was a cast member in all honesty. I’ve seen every episode a million times over and I can’t tell you anything about this woman other than her doing waxes and hair removal and being a mother to cute little twins. This just seems like another case of someone being too normal for reality TV.
Quinn Fry seemed like she was going to be an interesting cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County, but she never delivered. She wore all those weird wigs to seem like she was fun and adventurous, but she really wasn’t and she was a total yawn fest. Thankfully, she was only on the show for one season.
I was expecting more from Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, but they didn’t bring it. Not to mention that I couldn’t figure out which twin was which for most of the time since they were obsessed with showing off how in sync they were. I hated how they came at Teresa Giudice for screen time and they were beyond annoying when they insisted on dragging out that story line about Teresa’s husband Rino Aprea supposedly getting with the twins’ mom. The twins insisted they didn’t want this gossip out there, yet they were the ones who kept talking about it.
Jules Wainstein took a play from the Yolanda Foster PR playbook when the news of her divorce hit the press on the same day that a Real Housewives of New York episode featuring her marital problems aired. But other than that, she really hasn’t contributed much to the show. Still, I don’t feel like that’s completely her fault though. Everyone on that show is just so loud and outrageous that I feel like she can’t get a word in. I feel like I’ve learned nothing about her life from watching the show. And I’m still wondering why a stay-at-home mother of two is stressing out so much about hiring a nanny. But the season isn’t over yet, so maybe she will get more interesting…or at least I hope so, because I do like her.
This woman’s whole story line centered around having a friendly rivalry with Alexis Bellino. Other than that, it’s hard to remember anything about Peggy Tanous and her time on Real Housewives of Orange County. Well that and the reveal during the reunion that Peggy previously “dated” Alexis’s husband Jim Bellino, but even that revelation did not do much to leave a mark on the Real Housewives legacy.
It is never a good idea to cast women who don’t have previous relationships within the cast. It is just very awkward integrating any of them into the group in a seemingly natural way. Aside from that, Kim Fields was beyond boring. She had zero sass, except for those random outbursts during the reunion. She brought her kids to adult vacations. She was extremely judgmental and she was always crying for no reason. She had no place on Real Housewives of Atlanta whatsoever.
This just seemed like some lazy casting on Bravo’s part. Amber Marchese came onto the show as a distant friend of Melissa Gorga’s and she didn’t even live in the same area as most of the cast, so none of it made any sense. She never had much to say about anything other than her husband’s business, her battle with cancer (which we all had sympathy for of course), and Teresa Giudice’s legal troubles. Not only was she useless, but her husband Jim Marchese was beyond aggravating to watch.
Everyone on Real Housewives of Atlanta has a fiery personality, except for Claudia Jordan. She did not bring anything to the show. Sure, she had an interesting back story about growing up as a biracial woman, but she really had no captivating interactions with the other women. Although I lived for it when Porsha Williams ignored her at their shared office and just put on lip gloss as if Claudia wasn’t there - but even Porsha knew that Claudia was not bringing much to the table. Aside from that one time she popped off against NeNe Leakes on vacation, Claudia was just wall paper - gorgeous wall paper, but wall paper nonetheless.
I feel bad putting Dina Manzo on this list because I love her, but after the first season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, she really shared nothing with the viewers. We never got to see her (now ex) husband or her daughter and she was always really vague about her beef with sister Caroline Manzo. She is just way too private for reality TV.
