Katie Rost Teaches Charrisse Jackson Jordan The Word "L'Chaim"

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.

7. RHONY: How to Skateboard

Get the Paramedics Ready!

While shredding the gnar a la LuAnn de Lesseps, always make sure to have a cushy surface to land on and the paramedics on standby.
