We wouldn't ever dare to pick a favorite of our beloved Housewives, but E! has asked fans to weigh in over the course of a weeks-long poll to crown the Ultimate Leading Lady of our franchise.
Today, the cable network announced their winner. And with former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo going neck-to-neck with newcomer Shannon Beador of Real Housewives of Orange County, only one could come out on top.
Who reigned? Shannon Beador was voted Best Housewife Ever. The mother and wife scored 59 percent of the votes, according to E!.
Shannon was up against her fellow OC star Vicki Gunvalson in the second-to-last round, which also featured Kenya Moore from Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Shannon posted a thank you to her fans on Instagram Monday night. "I am so thankful for everyone who has voted for me in the last few weeks!" she wrote. "Completely overwhelming...You rock!!!"
