Lost count of the amount of Real Housewives franchises around the world? So have we.

Yet the Auckland-based version of the franchise in New Zealand is in a tonne of hot water, due to one of its stars being filmed using an awful racial slur, which producers have chosen to include in Tuesday night's episode — albeit bleeped out.
