The DUI arrest of Bella Hadid is just the latest alcohol-related incident on the popular reality series.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster appeared mortified on this week’s episode of the show after learning that her teenage daughter had been arrested for drunk driving.

While she was on vacation aboard a luxury yacht in Spain, Foster received a call from her husband explaining that their 19-year-old daughter, Bella Hadid, had received a DUI stateside. The incident was particularly traumatic for her because she had lost her father in a car accident.

"I don't think in the 19 years of being a parent, I've felt that collapse inside," she tearfully told the cameras. "I'm so disappointed by her choice. How did she make that decision? I thought the last thing that would ever happen would be for Bella to have a drink and get in a car." The aspiring teen model only alluded to the incident after the episode aired by tweeting, “Thank you for supporting me.”

Alcohol has played a role in plenty of storylines on the Real Housewives. Brandi Glanville’s drinking became such a problem last year that her castmates discussed holding an on-camera intervention. Glanville was regularly shown drunkenly snapping at cameras, but denied having a drinking problem and accused her other co-stars of lecturing her.

In November 2013, Glanville made headlines after having to be carried to her car after getting wildly drunk at her birthday celebration. She also lost part of her dress during a booze-filled night on the town that July, ending with her falling down as she exited a hotel, needing to be helped out by a male friend.  She later acknowledged via Twitter that she "f---ed up," but lashed out at those who criticized her behavior.

"I got drunk with my gays its not murder, everyone kept sending us drinks. I was being polite," she tweeted. "When ur PERFECT and make all the right decisions ALL [of] the time, and don't have at least a bit of cellulite on ur ass, get back 2 me."
