The Frostiest Real Housewives Ice Queens

Most of the drama on the Real Housewives is muy caliente, but there are some Bravo stars who like to keep their temperature and personality at a brisk 32 degrees. These women often have a cold demeanor and could win over Jack Frost’s heart. Yet we, as viewers, love to hate these Real Housewives ice queens and their spine-chilling antics.

For years, Dina Manzo has had a rift with her sister, Caroline Manzo. It’s gotten so heated that she claimed she wasn’t invited to her niece’s wedding. During her first two seasons, Dina came across as sweet, as she usually kept her cool around the other women. But when she reappeared on Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, a lot had changed.

She no longer had a good-standing relationship with Caroline after becoming very close with Teresa Giudice. But the real frigid moments occurred between Danielle Staub and Dina, with the former stripper having it out for the mother of one. In one scene, after a fight, Dina noted, “I can’t believe this b**ch called me an Ice Princess. I prefer Ice Queen.”

This next Housewife is one tough cookie and is often attacked for showing little to no emotion. The Pretty Mess singer rarely melts under pressure and can chisel away at anyone’s armor. For multiple seasons, Erika Jayne has been bombarded with accusations regarding what her ex-husband, Tom Girardi, did to victims of the Lion Air plane crash.

Even though Erika claimed to be close to this group of Beverly Hills women, all of them seemed to be left in the dark, learning new information from the tabloid articles. Erika is known for her badass energy and often will verbally eviscerate any of the women for challenging her. If Erika is a Frozen protagonist, we don’t know who is making her the Ice Queen of the Desert.

Hailing from Salt Lake City, where there is more ice and snow than any other franchise, is Jen Shah. The mother of two didn’t allow anyone to get close to her and often used some of the women, like Heather Gay, to her advantage. Jen preyed on their loyal friendships and would never apologize for her antagonistic outbursts.

On top of that, she was a narcissistic woman who lied about her entire life. So it didn’t come as a shock when Jen was arrested on the side of the road and found guilty of conspiracy to commit wire fraud for running a telemarketing scheme that defrauded elderly people. You have to be pretty heartless to steal from those who are so vulnerable.  

Teddi Mellencamp

The anorexia profiteer known as Teddi Mellencamp came across as sweet and relatable during her first season on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but soon, her true colors began to shine brightly.

Teddi’s All-In diet, which promotes dieting and fitness routines, has come under fire numerous times. Messages from former clients began to surface on Instagram, claiming that the program often pushed an unhealthy lifestyle that included restrictive standards. There are also no licensed healthcare professionals on the All-In staff, according to the website. At the time, Teddi did admit that she used to have clients sign an NDA because some just wanted to talk to her because of the show. The hubbub eventually died down, but we are still not sure if her clients are allowed to eat. 

Jody Claman


If you haven’t watched the Real Housewives of Vancouver, you are missing the worst and downright most frostbitten woman of all time. Jody Claman was a middle-aged, blonde, mean girl from the pits of hell who enjoyed really just being cruel to her co-stars. 

Jody quickly targeted Mary Zilba since she was the wounded antelope of the Candian herd. It was obvious that Jody genuinely hated everything Mary stood for. Jody’s constant belligerence was often draining, with fans hating her Queen of Hearts persona and “Off with their heads” attitude. 

Jody often showed little empathy in the series and seemed to enjoy upsetting people for sport. In 2015, she went through a nasty divorce where even the judge accused her of trying to manipulate the court. If the ice crown fits, Jody.
