11 Things We've Learned from The Real Housewives

Whoever said the 'Wives are all diamonds and rosé has obviously never seen the Countess ride a skateboard.

What would we possibly do without the guidance of our Housewives? It's safe to say that we'd be lost without them. Over the years, they've taught us how to handle a bad date, how to throw a glass of wine at someone, and, most importantly, how to party. Hey, even Andy Cohen learned the art of "reading" from his many hours spent with the Real Housewives.

The newest 'Wives on the block, The Real Housewives of Potomac, undestand the importance of imparting their wisdom on the world! Whether it's Karen Huger teaching her fellow Housewives the rules of etiquette, or Katie Rost teaching Charrisse Jackson-Jordan how to pronounce "L'chaim," you can be sure the 'Wives are always ready to share a life hack or a special skill with the masses. So, join in and embrace your fellow Helpful Housewives with these skills we've learned from the Real Housewives!

1.  RHOP: Know When Flowers Are in Season

Karen Huger Gets a Lesson in Horticulture
Apparently spring flowers only bloom in spring. No cherry blossoms this time, Karen!

Karen learned the hard way that  Cherry Blossoms, aren’t on standby. It goes to show that matter how powerful a Housewife you are, you can't control the weather.

2.  RHOA: Porsha Learns About the Underground Railroad

The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Confused by the Underground Railroad

A Housewife should always prepared for an impromptu history lesson. Unfortunately for Porsha, we're still unsure if this has sunken in. 

3.  RHOC: How to Take a Tequila Shot

4.  RHOBH: What is Munchausen Syndrome?

5.  RHOC: What Temperature Wine is Stored

Mrs. Fancy Pants might have a new title — Mrs. Know-It-All.

6.  RHOBH: How to Pat the Puss

Watch What Happens Live
Erika & Cheyenne Pat the Puss
Erika Girardi from #RHOBH teaches actor Cheyenne Jackson how to “pat the puss” and they both seem to master it in sync in the clubhouse!

The roll and pat is the best move to bust out on the dance floor, at a party, or the Watch What Happens Live Clubhouse. (Especially when you're channeling your inner Erika Jayne!)

7.  RHONY: How to Skateboard

8.  RHONY: How to Throw a Hatchet

9.  RHONJ: How to Shave Your Face

10.  RHONJ: How to Have Perfect Hair

11.  RHOA: How to Read

The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Kim Fields Attends the School of Read
Phaedra Parks and NeNe Leakes teach Kim the art of throwing shade.
