See All the Real Housewives Who Renewed Their Vows — and If Their Love Really Lasted
RAMONA & MARIO SINGER: Divorced
Back in 2009, Ramona and Mario Singer celebrated 17 years of marital bliss by saying "I do" for a second time on season 3 of The Real Housewives of New York City. Standing in front of 70 of their closest friends, family, and castmates at the Pierre Hotel, the two recited personal vows. "You've been my rock through troubled times. You have been my ray of sunshine, when I could not see the light,” Mario told her. Said Ramona: "You are the perfect man for me. You are a great husband, father, a great lover, and my best friend. … I can't imagine my life without you. I truly love you forever and ever.” Sadly, the Singers went their separate ways just three years later, after Mario was caught cheating. Their divorce was finalized in 2016, though they've come to be friends as they co-parent daughter Avery, 23.
TAMRA & EDDIE JUDGE: Still Married
Tamra and Eddie Judge wed in June 2013, a little over a year after her contentious divorce from ex Simon Barney was finalized. Their nuptials aired on a three-part Tamra's OC Wedding special. But when they decided to renew their vows four years later, the two did so away from the RHOC cameras, heading to Eagle Beach in Aruba for the Caribbean’s largest vow renewal ceremony. "Aruba is simply beautiful," Tamra told PEOPLE in August 2017. "It meant everything for Eddie and I to be able to ‘renew our I Do’s’ in such a picturesque setting, in the company of our family. Cheers to a lifetime of love and adventure, from the One happy island!"
VICKI & DONN GUNVALSON: Divorced
"I want to move from this day forward to a new marriage," Vicki Gunvalson told her husband Donn on The Real Housewives of Orange County's fifth season, as the two celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary with a sunset vow renewal in the Turks & Caicos. "My love for you today is as strong as it's been in a very long time." It wasn't strong enough, though. Less than a year later, in 2010, Vicki filed for divorce, telling viewers her "love tank" had been running on empty. Their split was finalized in 2014.
LISA VANDERPUMP & KEN TODD: Still Married
Few couples have as strong of a marriage as Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd, who celebrated their 30-year wedding anniversary during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' third season back in 2013 with an over-the-top vow renewal ceremony. "30 years ago I stood at your side full of hopes and dreams. I was almost a child, a you have managed to fulfill most of those hopes and dreams," Vanderpump told Todd in the episode, joking, "So you can go now!" Joining them for the romantic occasion? Their RHOBH cast mates, children, family and beloved dog, Giggy. "I love you," Todd told Vanderpump. "And always will."
SHANNON & DAVID BEADOR: Divorced
Shannon Beador was given the shock of her life when her husband David Beador surprised her with a vow renewal in 2016 during The Real Housewives of Orange County's eleventh season. Just a year prior, David’s infidelity nearly tour the couple apart. She ultimately forgave him, and the couple seemed to be going strong when David staged the surprise ceremony, which brought Shannon to tears. Ultimately, their problems were too much to overcome, and the two went their separate ways, ending their 17-year marriage. Their divorce was finalized in March.
KIM ZOLCIAK-BIERMANN & KROY BIERMANN: Still Married
Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Kroy Biermann, who married in November 2011, had their six children by their side when they wed again over Mother’s Day weekend 2017 in Turks and Caicos. The romantic beachside ceremony, timed to the seven-year anniversary of when they met, aired on Don't Be Tardy — the Real Housewives of Atlanta star's spinoff series. "There were a lot of happy tears," she told PEOPLE at the time. "A vow renewal is something I’ve always want to do, and we did it with all the kids around us — which was really special. Our family has grown so much over the years, but we’ve always remained a tight team."
STEPHANIE & TRAVIS HOLLAMAN: Still Married
Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Dallas featured Stephanie and Travis Hollman renewing their vows after 10 years of marriage, in an intimate outdoor backyard ceremony overlooking a lake at their newly renovated, 8,631-square-foot home. With their two young sons by their side, the pair looked as happy as ever. "What a blessing these last 10 years have been," said Stephanie, who re-wore her original wedding gown. "Thank you for loving me for who I am and not expecting me to be anything more than the girl you fell in love with."
CYNTHIA BAILEY & PETER THOMAS: Divorced
Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas barely made it down the aisle the first time, during the third season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta — what with Bailey's sister and mother hiding their marriage certificate. So it was a sweet gesture when Thomas planned a surprise vow renewal for Bailey just two years later, in 2012. It all went down on the beach, during a cast trip to Anguilla. At the time, Bailey called it "the most romantic wedding any woman could ever want or dream of." Sadly, their dream became more of a nightmare. By March 2017, the couple had divorced.
LYDIA & DOUG MCLAUGHLIN: Still Married
Lydia and Doug McLaughlin enjoy vow renewals so much, they've done them three times! The Real Housewives of Orange County pair — who first tied the knot on April 30, 2006 — walked down the aisle again for their seventh wedding anniversary, then again for year 10, and finally for year 13 last August in Aruba. "I know that Doug is my person, and we will be together until death do us apart… but why should we only celebrate our love once in our lifetime!" the mother of three wrote on her blog. "Marriage is a journey and one worth celebrating.... We had a wonderful day and I’m sure it is not our last vow renewal!"
