#RHAwards Decision 2016 Issues: Education

No 'Wife left behind! Get schooled in the lessons of the Real Housewives. 

By Rachael Roberts

Education: What You Need to Know. Education: What You Need to Know


Every Housewife worth her rosé knows that reading is fundamental. Assessing a situation, and then giving one's educated opinion on it is an essential part of being a Housewife. We'll let NeNe Leakes explain:


Of course, coming prepared doesn't hurt either. There have been countless moments of 'Wives getting schooled when, say, a fellow lady pulled out an incriminating text from behind a pillow in a Reunion special. And we all remember when Porsha Williams got a lesson in spelling the hard way...(To be clear it's "scepter").

Doling out lessons is also a classic part of Housewife life. With books like Class with the Countess, Let Me Tell You Something, and Drinking and Tweeting, Housewives have shared their wisdom on manners, family, and Ramona Coasters. We like to think of them as Professors of Life, who provide us with invaulable truths and time-honored philosophies to live by. 

So going into Decision 2016, in the words of Danielle Staub and your 5th grade teacher:

No one said being a Housewife was easy – luckily, newbie Kim Fields had Professors NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks hold a special class in their school of shade.

Education has never been so important to The Real Housewives of Orange County as this year. Well, being college educated that is.

The Freshman season of The Real Housewives of Potomac brought us endless learnings in etiquettte, but we think our favorite might have been Karen Huger gifting Gizelle Braynt a lesson in birthday manners. We love a read that comes gift-wrapped.

This may have been the moment we fell in love with both Grand Dame Karen and sassy Gizelle Bryant. 

In more adorable education news, we'd be remiss not to mention the day Ayden started kindergarten making all eyes run over with tears as he lamented how much he'd miss his mama.
