Michael Rapaport is such a superfan of The Real Housewives that he included a power ranking of 'Wives in his new book, This Book Has Balls: Sports Rants from the MVP of Talking Trash. After appearing on Wendy, the actor sat down with the show's Hot Topics producer Norman Baker to heatedly debate the list.
While he wouldn't reveal all of the exact rankings on the top 20 list, he did reveal that Erika Girardi from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was one of his very favorites by comparing her to one of the greatest athletes of all time.
"Her first season, she was rookie of the year," he told Baker. "She was like Michael Jordan in his rookie season."
He was also full of praise for Kim Zolciak-Biermann ("She's an icon") from The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Don't Be Tardy and Teresa Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey ("She's the main planet and the little planets revolve around her").
"I welcome any debates," he concluded. "I made this list — lists are for laundry, they're not for Housewives. Housewives are above lists."
