#RHAwards Decision 2016 Issues: Healthcare

From plastic surgery to medical mysteries, deep dive into the Housewives' year in health. 

By Rachael Roberts

Healthcare: What You Need to Know

Health and wellness have always been a top priority for the Real Housewives. From Botox to lip injections to implants, our ‘Wives have yet to meet a procedure they didn’t like. One of the original taglines of #RHOC Season 1 was indeed [cast_bio_link id="922516" label="Kimberly Bryant"]Kimberly Bryant[/cast_bio_link]’s “85 percent of the women around here have had breast implants." There's also this amazing Housewives archival footage below:

Plastic surgery: a true foundation of Housewifedom. 

But that’s not all - our Real Housewives also give us what we need make the mind and body better. Hand us some Skinny Girl bars, have [cast_bio_link id="922886" label="Luann de Lesseps"]Luann de Lesseps[/cast_bio_link] whip up some eggs ala francais, and pass on over the [cast_bio_link id="922231" label="Vicki Gunvalson"]Vicki[/cast_bio_link] Vodka, please. Maybe [cast_bio_link id="924696" label="Carole Radziwill"]Carole Radziwill[/cast_bio_link] can loan us Chef Adam, or [cast_bio_link id="undefined"]Heather[/cast_bio_link] bring some hot dogs made by her private chef, to balance out all the [cast_bio_link id="922891" label="Ramona Singer"]Ramona[/cast_bio_link] Pinot. We can always work out our Stallion and Donkey booties with the help of [cast_bio_link id="undefined"]Kenya[/cast_bio_link] and [cast_bio_link id="923751" label="Phaedra Parks"]Phaedra[/cast_bio_link], respectively.

With healthcare comes everything from yoga lessons to Botox injections for our 'Wives - and, as always, a healthy dose of drama. 

The Decision 2016 Breakdown

Housewife Healthcare it isn’t all collagen and tummy tucks. Yes, we must examine every side of this issue this election season. And oh, were there issues with Healthcare...

It has been a year filled of medical mysteries. Perhaps one of the most iconic of our time, whether [cast_bio_link id="922231" label="Vicki Gunvalson"]Vicki Gunvalson[/cast_bio_link]’s boyfriend Brooks Ayers actually had cancer still remains the topic on #RHOC. No matter what Vicki does, [cast_bio_link id="925926" label="Shannon Beador"][/cast_bio_link] is not letting it go.

Similarly, as former model [cast_bio_link id="924951" label="Yolanda Hadid"]Yolanda Hadid[/cast_bio_link] continued her battle with Lyme’s disease, the other Beverly Hills Housewives had a lot of questions starting with the letter M...Yes, Yolanda's health created the biggest drama of the season - 'Wives were thrown under the bus, accused of lying, and even brought to tears. Take a look at the beginnings of this Lyme's Disease debacle below.

Whose side of these complicated healthcare debates you land on could decide this election.

There were also moments of health improvement this year. Perhaps most memorble, there was that time [cast_bio_link id="923786" label="Lisa Vanderpump"][/cast_bio_link] was in the chryogenic freezer.

And that moment when [cast_bio_link id="923751" label="Phaedra Parks"]Phaedra[/cast_bio_link] and [cast_bio_link id="925066" label="Porsha Williams"]Porsha[/cast_bio_link] got their booties sprayed...
