The Real Housewives -- and their significant others -- have given us no fewer than eight singles, but who's number one with a bullet? The Hollywood Reporter did some digging and discovered -- to no one's surprise -- that "Tardy for the Party" from The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak (and produced by castmate Kandi Burruss) is the best-selling Real Housewife hit, with an impressive 101,000 paid downloads. With variables like piracy factored in, the Reporter estimates that about 1 million people have some copy of the tune in their music files. (Check out "Tardy for the Party" and more musical offerings from the Housewives.)
Kandi can also claim the second-best–selling Real Housewives single with her "Fly Above," reportedly clocking in at about 55,000 sales. The third most popular Bravoleb jam is The Countess LuAnn de Lesseps' "Money Can't Buy You Class," which has sold 19,000 digital copies. The most recent entry onto the Housewives chart, Melissa Gorga's "On Display," has reportedly sold more than 8,000 copies since it was released last month.
DC party enthusiast Michaele Salahi's club anthem "Bump It" fared... well, worse, moving just 122 copies so far. But again, factoring in piracy, that means that approximately 1,220 people may have a copy. Now are you impressed?
The Hollywood Reporters chart dive didn't include Kim Z's follow-up singles "The Ring Didn't Mean A Thing" or "Google Me," or offerings from Gretchen Rossi or Miss Lawrence. If you want to revisit those or any of the Housewives' singles, we've got you covered.

MEL, I AM TEAM TRE AND JAY ALL THE WAY!!!! THAT BEING SAID I DO FEEL BAD AT TIMES FOR YOU ALSO, YOU PROBEBLY SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO TRE WHEN SHE WAS BASICLY WARNING YOU THAT HER BROTHER BUILT THE STUDIO SO YOU WOULDN'T LEAVE THE HOUSE AND THAT HE DID IT SO YOU WOULD MAKE MONEY. HE SAID THAT YOU HAD BETTER BRING IT AFTER HE SPENT SO MUCH ON THE STUDIO AND WHATS WITH HIS CONSTANT DISRESPECT OF YOU, HE'S EITHER COMING ON TO OTHER WOMAN OR TREATS YOU LIKE A HIS POISON TOY. PLEASE WAKE UP AND SEE WHATS GOING ON AND WORRY MORE ABOUT YOU AND JOE INSTEAD OF YOU AND TRE. JUST SOME FRIENDLY ADVICE, MAYBE YOU'LL HAVE MORE FANS.
Melissa what did you think when you saw that your hubby said just what his sister said regarding your sining and making the money for his hard work and what it cost him to build the studio. I did notice you never mentioned that. You got pretty upset when Theresa said it. Maybe you are so into yourself that you didn't watch what Joe said when you were singing and he was putting his spin on it. I think you would all get along a lot better if you didn't stick your nose in. You started and keep the fight going the day your son was baptised. That snort and dig things you do should have been at you not from you. You just keep tell Joe anything you THINK Theresa is doing. I'm also from an Italian family and we all love each other. If we have an issue I would never push my husband to the point of calling his sister GARBAGE. What was Joe thinking? that hurt her and he knew what she was going through at the time and trying to make it look like everything was okay.Theresa is not completely with out fault but family should be trying to help each other not rub crap in the others faces.
I think that your song is wonderful. I would love to have a copy of it and sign and i would love to meet you and your family. Thanks for listening to what is have to say!
