From Carole Radziwill to Lisa Vanderpump, study up on past interviews in Housewives history to prepare yourself for a career in Real Housewife assisting.

How Ashley Darby Conducts an Interview

On Episode 5 of The Real Housewives of PotomacAshley Darby and her hubby Michael are on the search for an assistant to help with the nitty gritty of their new restaurant, Oz Arlington and they certainly did not hold back on the questions. If you're looking to work for spring chicken Ashley, be sure to take really good care of your feet and have a grasp on the latest Australian slang. Though we're still not entirely sure what a bogen is, we suggest you fake it until you make it. Oh, and be sure to have the skillset to blow on Michael's long, hard didgeridoo. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Potomac on Peacock and the Bravo app

However, this isn't the first time a Housewife had an interesting interview experience. We dug through our archives to pull up the best interview moments in Bravo history. If you're looking to become to an assistant to any of our Bravolebs, here is some of the best advice we can give you: 

1. Dina Manzo's Naked Cat Is Always Cute

Dina's New Assistant

Aside from being always willing to please Dina, you must be able to remove spiders from her house, purchase her tampons, bathe her cats and still love her the next day even when she's a work b*tch. The motto: If Dina's happy, then you're happy. 

2. Get Your Knowledge Up On Wire Hangers

Ramona Tests Carole’s Assistant Skills

Wire hangers play a very large role in the day to day responsibilites that come with being Carole Radziwill's assistant. Be sure to do research on them to wow her with your expertise on why they're so irrelevant. 

3. Don't Be Afraid To Take Control

If you're trying to work for Ramona Singer, you need to be on her level. She's a control freak so you need to be a control freak, too. You either got it or you don't. No pressure there, right?!

4. Being Adorable Doesn't Hurt

Sure, we can't all be as cute as Tom Schwartz, but we can try. Also, don't get into fights with other SUR employees. Oh, and let's not forget to shower Lisa Vanderpump with compliments; flattery will get you everywhere. 

Now that you have this extensive knowledge of what a Housewife needs, dust of your voguing shoes and go into that interview with confidence! Or at least with a bottle of pinot grigio.
