Not every Housewives side hustle can be Skinnygirl successful.

Lynne Curtin: Curtin Cuffs
Remember Lynne's cuffs? We used to cringe every time she made all the other OC Housewives try them on, like: girl, take that off your wrist.
2 / 16
Jacqueline: Blk Water
Jacqueline never really explained why Blk water was black (...vitamins??) or why anyone would want black water. We can't believe this is still on the market.

Jacqueline: The Little Kernel
You know when you get to the bottom of your bag of popcorn, and there's all the little, half popped kernels? Jacqueline made a line of snacks with just those tiny little disappointing kernels.

Sonja: Toaster Oven
After episode after episode of discussing it, Sonja's toaster oven never materialized.
5 / 16
Kathy Wakile: Flavoured Coffee
Chocolate raspberry coffee? Why didn't Kathy just stick to cannolis?
6 / 16
Jim Edmonds: Candles
Listen, given how little interest he shows in his wife, it's nice to see there's SOMETHING Jim cares about, but it's also super weird that his life passion is selling candles.

Meghan: Hashtag Hats
If you, too, have been wondering where all the OC Housewives are getting their sparkly hashtag trucker hats, we found out for you: MeghanKingEdmonds.com.

Lisa Rinna: Depends
Lisa loves to tell us how she got paid to be a spokesperson for Depends, and we love to watch her on repeat in a super uncomfortable ad for adult diapers. It's a win-win.

Phaedra: Funeral Director
No side hustle in Housewives history has been as random as the time Phaedra decided her new gig was going to be funeral director.

Jill Zarin: Necklaces
Only one New York Housewife is known for necklaces, and that is the Countess.

Carole: The Madcap Tales of My Year on The Real Housewives of New York
Carole was a NYT best-selling author and respected memoirist well before the Real Housewives, so it was disheartening to see her sink to rush-releasing a book about her experience on RHONY that was tantamount to a collection of blog posts.

Alexis: Alexis Couture
This is how Alexis explained the meaning of the word couture: "Couture is... A term on a design, a dress. It fits, I guess...super... rich."

Alexis: Sky Zone Trampoline Park
Trampoline parks seem super fun, but we do not want to watch our Real Housewives run a small-time string of franchised businesses aimed at children. And if we want to watch a Housewife sweat, we'll go to Cut Fitness.

Kandi: A Mother’s Love
Kandi is a mega-successful songwriter and performer and she's launched a string of strong businesses, but her autobiographical play was one of the few flops – as we saw on RHOA. (The play's tour was eventually cancelled.)
15 / 16
Vicki: Vicki’s Vodka
An ill-fated brand that was cast aside following Vicki's breakup from Brooks, Vicki's booze line contained a product absolutely no one needed: bacon-flavoured vodka.

Vicki: Kill All Cancer
Was it even a charity?! The only thing that we understood about Kill All Cancer was that it was the tackiest way Vicki could try to bounce back from her boyfriend faking cancer. Following a swift, terrible reaction from consumers, Kill All Cancer was shut down, joining the graveyard of failed Housewives business ventures.
