Don’t you just long for the old days of Housewives singles? Sure, we love Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams’s new tune, “Flatline,” but its actually sort of serious and, dare we say, viable on the pop charts? In our days, the songs were high on camp and catchiness, low on actual vocal skill — and we loved that!
That nostalgia got us to thinking about the biggest singles in Bravolebrity history, and which ones actually were a success. After all, we may have them on our iTunes but that doesn’t mean everyone and their mothers actually bought the songs.
During the April 8 episode of Real Housewives of New York,Wetpaint Entertainment partnered with Viggle LIVE! to ask users if they could guess which tune had the highest number of downloads. An impressive 40 percent of users guesses correctly that Kim Zolciak’s “Don’t Be Tardy” took home the cake. Meanwhile, 34 percent believed Melissa Gorga’s “On Display” to have outsold them all, and 26 percent chose LuAnn de Lesseps’s “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” (Elegance is learned, after all.)

While she may not have had the natural talent, Kim made up for that in spunk (and one killer wig), nabbing 101K downloads for her Kandi Burruss-penned “Don’t Be Tardy.” Heck, it even has its own spinoff named after it! Meanwhile, LuAnn’s musical lesson in etiquette came in a distant second with 19K. Sadly, RHONJ star Melissa’s debut single only raked in around 8K in sales.
