Lots of things changed in 2012. Facebook dropped Timelines on everyone to much dismay and status update grumbling. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj joined American Idol and almost immediately nearly ripped each others' faces off. Taylor Swift started writing songs about ex-boyfriends and seemed surprised to win awards. No, wait, that last one's not new. Oh, and in Bravo-land, there were a whole bunch of new faces gracing the various Real Housewives franchises. But which franchise had the best Rookie 'Wives? Vote on our Facebook page!

Real Housewives of New York saw the biggest increase in newbies, as Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher came on board and very quickly saw themselves at war with the returning castmates. Further south on the East Coast, Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore joined the always-wild Atlanta ladies, while Miami saw the addition of supermodel Joanna Krupa, Ana Quincoces, Lisa Hochstein and Karent Sierra. Further west, Heather Dubrow joined the lovely ladies of Orange County, and Beverly Hills gained the luxurious grace of Yolanda Foster and Brandi Glanville officially became a 'Wife herself.
