The Real Housewives reunions always have the potential to be iconic. Some reunion moments live on in fans’ memories for a number of reasons.
The reunion of any given season of The Real Housewives is a chance for everything to be addressed. It is a chance for the cast to bring up any drama that happened throughout the show and perhaps even get some closure. Naturally, reunions have made for memorable television over the years.
With most of the current The Real Housewives seasons running for an average of 20 episodes, there are always plenty of events and discussions that take place while filming. However, reunions have existed since the first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County back in 2006. The reunion has effectively brought the cast together in one setting to hash out the events of the season.
Naturally, there have been plenty of iconic and memorable reunion moments in the 16 years The Real Housewives franchise has been around. As it turns out, re-hashing previous drama, even drama that has been resolved, can open up wounds and trigger over-the-top reactions and responses. Fans worldwide constantly refer to reunion moments, not just fights, on social media in memes and reactions and just general reminiscing.
