Vicki & Brooks and 7 More of the Saddest ‘Real Housewives’ Breakups Ever (PHOTOS)

The Real Housewives franchise began in 2006 and over the years, we’ve seen many relationships come and go. It seems as though breakups have become as important a part of the Bravo show as wine-tossing and table-flipping have and, honestly, it’s super sad to watch.

 

With the recent news of Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers’ split, we’re taking a trip back in time to relive some of the most heartbreaking breakups in the history of Housewives, from The Real Housewives of Orange County to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Real Housewives of New York to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. No stone has been left unturned and we’ve got some real tearjerkers here.

Take a look through the gallery to relive the franchise’s 7 most heartbreaking splits.

Vicki Gunvalson & Brooks Ayers

Vicki Gunvalson & Brooks Ayers

RHOC’s Vicki and Brooks, a relationship that drew much criticism, decided to end their four-year relationship in mid August 2015, saying in a joint statement to Wetpaint, “We both wish nothing but a great future for each other. We have come to realize that one can indeed love someone in their heart, but that the time may come for their lives to take separate paths.”

We consider Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy’s split one of the most drama-filled Real Housewives breakups ever. Having fallen in love on RHONY before getting married and having daughter Bryn on Bethenny Ever After, she and Jason decided to separate. They finalized their 4-year divorce battle over the summer.

Adrienne Maloof & Paul Nassif

Adrienne Maloof & Paul Nassif

Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif seemed to be doing swell when we were introduced to them on RHOBH Season 1, but we quickly learned that wasn’t the case. The two had been married since 2002 and their divorce was finalized a decade later in 2012. There’s nothing super dramatic here that led to their separation, but there’s certainly been drama since, which sucks because they have three kids. Thankfully, however, they’re on good terms these days.

NeNe Leakes & Gregg Leakes

NeNe Leakes & Gregg Leakes

Our hearts ached when RHOA’s NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes decided to call it quits because they were the OG couple on the show — but thankfully fate had a different outcome for these two. As bad as their breakup was, their rekindling was that much better. NeNe and Gregg said “I do” once more on I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding and we began to believe in true love again.

Camille Grammer & Kelsey Grammer

Camille Grammer & Kelsey Grammer

We hardly ever saw Kelsey Grammer on RHOBH and, by the end of Season 1, we knew why. The Golden Globe-winning actor was cheating on Camille Grammer while she stayed behind in the 90210 and he jetted off to NYC for a play. Seeing how heartbroken Camille was after the split was enough to send us on a tissue-buying bonanza. We don’t like to see anyone cry, but Camille especially.

Jo de la Rosa & Slade Smiley

Jo de la Rosa & Slade Smiley

Who could ever forget the rollercoaster ride that is Jo de la Rosa and Slade Smiley? These two came on RHOC as a united force and, over a veryshort period of time, were dunzo after breaking up on a couch in front of a shrink. Then, to make matters worse, they got a show on NBC called Date My Ex: Jo & Slade where Slade tried a find a new man for Jo. Yeah, it was as awkward as it sounds.

This one was heartbreaking! Though much of their marriage was consumed by the mother of three’s battle with Lyme disease, they appeared to be very much in love. Since the split, the 52-year-old has gone back to the last name she shares with her children and is focused on staying healthy.
