The 5 Unlikliest Housewife Alliances
From Ramona and Alex to Heather and Lydia, relive five amazing moments when enemies became friends.
On NBC's thrilling new drama The Blacklist, airing Mondays at 10/9c, James Spader stars as a wanted criminal who surprisingly teams up with the FBI to catch a long-thought-dead terrorist.
It's an unlikely alliance—and that got us thinking about notoroius moments in Housewives history where once-believed enemies patched up their differences to become friends. Here are five instances below—but we want to hear from you. What are your favorite examples of Housewives putting aside their differences to become friends (or, in some cases, just "frenemies")? Watch our picks below and share yours in the comments.
Ramona Singer and Alex McCord
These two RHONYC stars had their differences from the start of the show—Ramona has said whenever Alex would walk into a room, "I'd walk out"—but when Season 4 kicked off, Ramona promised to reevaluate her friendships and not be so "Ramo-tional." Perhaps the best example came when Ramona and Alex put aside any beef to take a dance class, where they learned how the Dougie.
Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes
Perhaps no two Atlanta Housewives have had quite the explosive friendship like Kim and NeNe. After all, who can forget Miss Leakes' epic fight with Kim on the bus? The two came to a diplomatic agreement during the Season 5 reunion, however. And while they both concluded that their friendship would never be the same again, they had a teary semi-reconciliation when they hugged it out.
Tamra Barney and Alexis Bellino
During Vicki Gunvalson's Winter Wonderland party, Tamra and Alexis made nice when Tamra apologized to Alexis' husband Jim. "I pre-judged you without getting to know you," she said. Tamra and Alexis had issues during Season 8 when, among other things, Tamra didn't want Alexis to join her in wedding dress shopping. And though Alexis has claimed they're now at a good place and not exactly "best friends," they had a peaceful moment together to get to that place.
Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice
The two RHONJ stars had a series of ups-and-downs this season, including a vague comment Teresa made to Jacqueline that might have insulted Jacqueline's son's issues with autism. But when Jacqueline appeared on Watch What Happens Live this month, she said the two have mended any broken fences. "Everybody just got to a point where we don't want to fight anymore," she says. "We have texted each other here and there...our lives are different...but it's in a good place."
Heather Dubrow and Lydia McLaughlin
Horrified that Heather wrote a "four page blog" about Lydia's anti-stripper stance, Heather reinforced that she was sorry during the Season 8 Reunion special. What else does she have to do...pop a vein?
