No group of women on television is known more for living the luxurious life than the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Orange County, D.C., Beverly Hills, New York and New Jersey. No matter which city they're in, they all have extravagant lifestyles that extend to the vehicles parked in their four-car garages. (Except New York, where a garage doesn't really exist. But they do at their Hamptons houses!)

Phaedra Parks, who is new to the Atlanta series this season, drives two Mercedes: a CL500 and an S550. "The S550 is for when I'm being a mom and carrying my baby around – it's the biggest sedan that Mercedes makes and it's a very comfortable ride. And I love luxurious things, so it fits me quite well," the lawyer explains. "My CL500 is a wonderful sports car; and it gets me to the courthouse extra fast."

Her Atlanta co-star, Kim Zolciak, calls her Bentley Convertible GTC her "favorite car ever." She also has a Range Rover. "I've had 11 Range Rovers in six years. I don't know what my problem is, but I love Range Rovers. And when they came out with the supercharged I was so excited because it's obviously a lot faster." Though she usually buys white cars (Porsche, Bentley, Cadillac Escalade and Range Rovers), she recently bought a black Escalade, "which has plenty of room for my daughters and their friends." NeNe Leakes also drives a Range Rover, but hers is gray. Singer Kandi Burruss has been spotted driving a black Mercedes CL63 as well as a BMW 7 series. And Sheree Whitfield used to drive a blue Aston Martin DB9 until it was seized by a lawyer she owed some money to.

The newest group of ladies from Beverly Hills, tend to cruise around town in a limousine, although Kyle Richards does drive a white Range Rover. (A spokesperson confirmed that there's no special relationship between the British brand and the show – it's merely coincidence that many housewives drive Land Rover's SUVs.) Lisa VanderPump rolls along Sunset Blvd. in a black Bentley GT convertible, which she can now drive after she attained her U.S. driver's license.

Over on the East coast, New Jersey wife Danielle Staub (who has since left the show) drives a – that's right – white Range Rover. Jacqueline Laurita drives a black one, and Theresa Giudice has an Escalade. Just across the Hudson River in New York, Jill Zarin's husband Bobby gave her a Mercedes G500 as a gift (which she didn't like because it lacked an iPod plug-in). Sonja Morgan cruises around the Hamptons in a 2006 BMW. But the self-proclaimed car person in the housewives crew is Kelly Killoren Bensimon, who drives a white Dodge Ram pickup truck. Down the coast in Washington, D.C., Mary Schmidt Amons drives an Escalade.

And what about the original housewives of Orange County? Gretchen Rossi speeds on the Pacific Coast Highway in a Mercedes SL55. And Tamra Barney's boyfriend of almost a year bought her a new BMW 335i Convertible last fall. Apparently you don't have to be a wife to get the perks.
