When reality stars split, they really split! I mean like it gets downright brutally dirty! We’re shocked at the levels these F-Listers celebrities will go when undergoing a divorce – and we’ve heard (and seen!) it all.

Below is Reality Tea’s list of the worst reality television divorces!

Above: Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy. Oh this one is deadly. The couple who met, got knocked up, married, and then fell apart on reality TV are the poster children for not letting 15 minutes of fame control your life. Three years of wedded… miss?
