Much like the fruit that symbolizes each locale, The Real Housewives of New York City and The Real Housewives of Orange County are apples and oranges — there's really no comparison. Maybe it's that in New York society there's so much more emphasis placed on culture and education, or maybe it's just that it takes much more wealth to live in NYC than California, but the women on Bravo's newest reality series are in a very different game than their West Coast counterparts, making the show much more than watching overly-tanned blondes in prefab mansions. But there's one thing that's the same no matter your location or financial status: When you're 12 years old, you find your mom embarrassing. For me, it was when my mom would call the homes of parties I was attending to make sure adults would be home. For Ramona's daughter Avery, it's when her mom kisses her onetime Playboy model friend on the lips. Clip above.
