What do all the husbands of The Real Housewives have in common? None of them asked for their lives to be put on display for millions of viewers throughout the world. While some of them are able to nobly deal with their situation, others are clearly unhappy about the fact that their wives decided to transform their lives into a reality show. This article is about the five husbands who’ve dealt with the show in the best possible way:
1. Jonathan Schindler
Holla Heather Thomson’s husband from The Real Housewives of New York wasn’t the most memorable participant in the show but he was surely one of the most valuable because of his humble character and mellow personality. Jonathan didn’t speak much on camera and was one of the few who weren’t mentioned in the Ashley Madison scandal. He stoically supported his wife’s business career and did everything within his power to make her happy. He also played a major part in raising their kids.
2. Bobby Zarin
Any list of the finest husbands in The Real Housewives would be incomplete without Bobby Zarin. Jill Zarin’s significant other was probably the only voice of reason in the New York-based version of the show. Bobby left a considerable mark on all viewers with his gentle voice and wise advice. He was his wife’s anchor and watched her climb the ladder of success, as well as fall from it. He was also remembered for his old-school gangster fashion style, which made him even more interesting to audiences.
3. Ken Todd
Ken Todd and Lisa Vanderpump made The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a genuine pleasure to watch with their solid marriage and business affairs. Ken backed up his wife on absolutely everything because he was clear about his priorities and loyalties. He supported her business, animal rescue, by never setting a limit on how many animals were allowed on their marital property. It’s easy to see how they have managed to stay together for more than three decades.
4. Gregg Leakes
It didn’t take long for Gregg Leakes to capture the hearts of millions. NeNe’s husband from The Real Housewives of Atlanta displayed an almost inhuman ability to remain calm amid the absolute chaos that was around him. Gregg and NeNe met at a spicy club and got married six months later. And although their marriage wasn’t always perfect, he always stood by his spouse regardless of her behavior.
5. Evan Goldschneider
Jackie Goldschneider’s husband Evan features in The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The Goldschneiders joined the show during its ninth season and immediately left their imprint. Evan is an exemplary father and didn’t hesitate to completely and utterly support his wife during her health issues. Besides being a great husband and father, Evan is also eye-candy for a significant portion of the female audience.
Other Notable Husbands in The Real Housewives
Apart from the above-listed men, other notable husbands in The Real Housewives franchise are Todd Tucker, Chris Samuels, Harry Hamlin, Eddie Judge, and Mauricio Umansky. Only time will tell if new names will be added to the list!
