From icy cat fights to full-on bloody brawls, reality television has blessed us with many Earth-changing spats. A fight doesn’t need to have of these elements to be epic, but it should contain at least one in abundance.
It makes us feel more normal and, let’s be real, they’re hilarious AF. Let us know your top picks in the comments below and check out more from VH1’s month-long Keepin’ It Real reality TV package.
was an A+ time to come at Althea Heart and Benzino full throttle. A total throwdown between the entire cast, which actually caused the taping to get shut down.
There’s rowdy, and then there’s the New York’s mouth?
That’s what it looks like, but regardless, this is some effed up tomfoolery. Banks’ fiery rant is now a monologue used by actors all over the world.
If you haven’t seen this yet, here’s some backstory: After getting eliminated from the show, Pumpkin tries to tell Flavor Flav that New York is a fame-hungry “actress” with no interest in loving him. says on camera: “I will smash [Adam’s] head and eat it.” ACTUAL MONSTER. New York certainly knows how to get these chicks riled up. A fight breaks out between Joseline and Erica, prompting the dudes to File this one under Bizarre Psycho A—holes.
New York denies this, and—before you know it—all hell breaks loose between the girls. According to the cast, there were bloody handprints on the walls and doors during this fight. When Tyra is displeased Season Four contestant Tiffany isn’t bawling uncontrollably after getting eliminated, she unleashes a now-iconic speech beginning with three golden words: Be. The second she comes on the stage, Buckwild throws a shoe at her. After that, Bootz and New York exchange some shady words. to apologize to Erica Dixon for calling her a b—ch. For some strange-as-hell reason, Dan gets extremely upset Melissa opened his mail without his consent.
There’s hair-pulling, (almost) shoe-hurling, and—of course—copious saliva. Then, Deelishis attempts to get in New York’s face, but security stops her. (We get it: That’s not cool, and an actual crime, but homeboy’s reaction is just too much.) “Was it f—king yours to open up, you stupid b—ch?! Conrad is understandably PO’ed after Spencer (and possibly Heidi) pushed LC’s ex Brody Jenner and her longtime BFF Jen Bunney together at Jen’s 21st birthday.
As if calling for back-up, all of the girls then charge toward New York; security tries (and sort of fails) to hold them back. ” Dan asks Melissa in the most misogynistic, condescending tone. Table flipping, incoherent screaming, and the phrase “prostitution whore”—what more could you want in a reality TV fight? Had security not stepped in, this would’ve gotten crazy brutal. Amber and Flo found this out the painful way (i.e.: a busted ankle and falling on hard cement). Heidi claims she had nothing to do with it, but Lauren smells bulls—t.
We hope Teresa has tossed tables on some basics in prison, tbh, but they’re probably bolted down. We have to give Flo props for literally limping toward Amber to start their battle. The resulting spat is one for the ages, climaxing when Lauren throws her phone down and wails, “[Spencer]’s a SUCKY PERSON! We like to call this one the Battle of the Oily Oafs.
