15 Real Housewives Kids: Where Are They Now?
Bravo’s drama-filled series known as the Real Housewives has become a staple show in the world of reality television. The series has successfully grown from two or three shows to an entire franchise with just under 10 different shows spanning multiple cities! Real Housewives has a loyal fan base, which is one of the reasons it has done so well. Dating back to 2006 when the first show hit the air, we’ve seen a lot of cast members come and go since then and many women presently on the show have been there from the beginning. A lot of the time it’s not just the Housewives who appear on the show either, but it’s also their friends and family. It’s always fun to check in on past and present cast members to see where they are now, so here’s a look at one particular group that fans are quite fond of as we got to see grow up in front of the cameras! Here’s a closer look at 15 past and present Real Housewives kids to see what they are up to now:
15. Kara Bosworth
The only viewers who would recognize this particular Real Housewives kid would be those who have watched the RHOC from the beginning. During the first season in 2006, she was known as Kara Keough, Jeana Keough’s only daughter. She was in her late teens as she was just wrapping up her high school years. We mostly saw Kara applying for colleges and fighting with her two older brothers who were also on the show, Shane and Colton, but it seems things have changed drastically since! She now works as a marketing coordinator for Ajilon, a professional staffing company. Not only does she have a new job, but she has a new name and baby too! Kara Keough is now known as Kara Bosworth as she married former Dallas Cowboys linebacker, Kyle Bosworth, back in 2014. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Decker Kate Bosworth, this year in January. In an interview with Bravo’s Daily Dish, Jeana opened up about Kara’s new life: “[Kara’s] been loving being a mother, and she’s almost hysterical that in a month she has to go back to work.”
14. Gigi Hadid
Out of Yolanda Foster’s three children, Gigi Hadid appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills the most. Yolanda joined the show back in 2012 when Gigi was only 17-years-old. The two made their debut on Bravo and it was quickly clear they had a close mother-daughter bond. When she first started appearing on the show, Yolanda gushed about Gigi and her modeling career which wasn’t at the supermodel status it is now. She was doing ads and campaigns for big names, but wasn’t walking in runways or living outside of Orange County. It wasn’t long before fans saw Yolanda packing up Gigi’s things and move her in to an apartment in the big city so that she could go to school and pursue a career in modelling. Today, Gigi and her sister, Bella Hadid are dominating the modeling industry. They’ve walked in prominent fashion shows like Victoria Secret and have graced the cover of nearly ever major magazine. Gigi is currently in a high profile relationship with singer Zayn Malik and has many famous friends like Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift.
13. Pandora Vanderpump
Pandora Vanderpump is by default a princess as she’s the daughter of Beverly Hills queen bee Lisa Vanderpump on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. When we first saw Pandora make an appearance on the show she was settled into her life as an young adult in a serious relationship with her now-husband, Jason. Today, she’s 30-years-old and now a businesswoman like her mother. She’s the founder of Vanderpump Wines and Spirits and LVP Sangria. Pandora also has a website called The Charity Market which is an online store for customers to shop at that gives 20 percent off all sales to charity. Not only that, but she also has a beauty and lifestyle website called Divine Addiction! She has made a few appearances on Lisa’s other show Vanderpump Rules as a friend of Stassi Schroeder and her elaborate wedding was featured on RHOBH.
12. Ryan Vieth
Ryan Vieth is Tamra Judge’s eldest child from her first marriage to Darren Vieth. Vieth first appeared on the show in 2007 when Tamra joined the cast of RHOC in season 3. Right away, it was clear that Tamra had her hands full with Vieth. He was a young adult who was constantly butting heads with her then-husband Simon Barney and was in and out of the house and constantly running into trouble with the law. We’ve seen Ryan come and go on the show, but he seems to be popping up more often. He’s doing better now, although he still has his struggles. In 2014 he was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder called hemochromatosis and in 2015 he met a woman on social media named Sarah Rodriguez. Ryan and Sarah’s relationship moved really fast and became a minor storyline on the show. The two moved in together, got engaged and quickly got pregnant! Ryan is now 30-years-old and has a baby girl named Ava with Sarah. Sarah has three children from a previous relationship that Ryan then had to take under his wing. The two never followed through on their engagement to get married and recently ran into some trouble when he was arrested for domestic violence after getting into a fight with Sarah. The two broke up, but recent photos on social media seem to imply the two have rekindled their relationship and are working things out.
11. Farrah Aldjufrie
She’s the eldest daughter of Kyle Richards on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We never saw too much of Farrah on the show as she’s one of four daughters, but she did make a few appearances. Farrah is Kyle’s daughter from her first marriage when she was extremely young. Viewers got to see some important moments in her life on the show like going to college and then finally graduating! Today, Farrah is following in her stepfather Mauricio Umansky’s footsteps by working at his L.A. real estate company. She was also named in Angeleno Magazine in a list of “Dynamic Women of Los Angeles.”
10. Avery Singer
Avery Singer is the daughter of veteran housewife Ramona Singer on The Real Housewives of New York City. She joined the show alongside her mother in January 2008. Avery wasn’t filmed often, but when she was she stole the show! She was a sassy, outspoken tween who wasn’t afraid to stand up to her mother (we can’t say the same for some of the other grown women on the show) and speak her mind! Avery was often found giving her mother advice on her fashion choices or just acting like the typical kid who is embarrassed of her mother. Today, we see Avery even less on the show, but she still appears once in a while. She’s now 21-years-old and has moved out of her mother’s house to go to college. She’s entering into her senior year at the University of Virginia and is looking more and more like her mother everyday!
9. Ally Shapiro
Allyson Shapiro is another kid from The Real Housewives of New York City. Ally joined the Real Housewives as the daughter of Jill Zarin in 2008. Her mother was a staple cast member on the show for many seasons until she was unexpectedly fired after the fourth season. Ally appeared the most during season 1 where she seemed to be almost bullied by her mother as she struggled to lose weight. In 2014, she graduated from Vanderbilt University and she now works as an assistant analyst. She returned to reality television in 2015 to appear in one episode as a family friend on Patti Stanger’s Millionaire Matchmaker.
8. Lauren Manzo
When Lauren Manzo first appeared on The Real Housewives of New Jersey back in 2009 she was 21-years-old. As the daughter of fan favorite, Caroline Manzo, Lauren was instantly welcomed on the show with open arms. Just like her mother, fans found Lauren extremely relatable as she shared her struggles openly from her weight to her career opening a beauty salon. She allowed Bravo’s cameras to film her lap band surgery in 2011 and again in 2013 when she underwent a breast reduction. All of the three Manzo kids were featured on the show a lot because viewers loved seeing their perfectly imperfect family dynamic, especially in contrast to some of the more dysfunctional families on the show (ahem Teresa and Joe). Their family was so popular that Caroline even got her own spin-off show called Manzo’d With Children! Today, Lauren is doing much better. She’s successfully slimmed down and seems to have much more confidence. She married her boyfriend Vito Scalia in June 2015, owns her own business called Cafface Beauty Bar and just partnered up with a friend to open a boutique called Full Blown Westchester. You can still watch Lauren and her siblings on their new show which was just recently renewed for a third season.
7. Ashlee Holmes
This girl left quite an impression on the viewers of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. When Ashlee was on the show, she was constantly bickering with her mother Jacqueline Laurita and a lot of the time we felt bad for Jacqueline! Ashlee came off like a spoiled brat who took joy in rebelling against her mother and making life difficult for her. Holmes most memorable moment was when she got involved in a feud between her mother and another housewife, Danielle Staub. The two faced off in a heated argument at the North Jersey Country club in season 2. At the time, Ashlee was only 19-years-old and still very immature as she yanked on Danielle’s hair. Staub sued and Danielle was forced to pay a fine of $189. That was the last impression we had of Ashlee, but she’s recently resurfaced and it seems a lot has changed! She is now 25-years-old and, after moving to Los Angeles, she’s back in New Jersey working as a make-up artist. Holmes is engaged to Pete Malleo and expecting her first child!
6. Brielle Biermann
Brielle Biermann was unfortunate enough to star on the first season of the The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008 when she was going through her awkward pre-teen years. Brielle is Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s eldest daughter and lately she’s been known for her drastic physical changes. She’s now 19-years-old and she’s already admitted to having regular lip injections from Kylie Jenner’s plastic surgeon, Dr. Simon Ourian, and has garnered a huge social media following with nearly 730,000 followers! Fans can find Brielle on the “Tardy for the Party” singer’s spin-off series, Don’t Be Tardy.
5. Mike Wolfsmith
Fans of RHOC have seen the hilarious relationship between Mike Wolfsmith and his sometimes overbearing mother, Vicki Gunvalson. He first started appearing on the show back in the first season when he was still a teenager, but he’s grown up a lot since then! Well, kinda. It’s pretty clear from Mike’s social media page that he still likes to go out and party with his friends, but he’s also done some adulting as he now owns a home in California and still works for his mother at Coto Insurance & Financial Services, but now he is the Vice President! He’s definitely made huge leaps and bounds in terms of moving up at his mother’s company and Vicki has been extremely vocal about her plans to have Mike take over the company when she retries.
4. Shane Keough
Shane Keough seemed like he was Jeana Keough’s star child during the first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. He was busy trying to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather as he pursued a career in the MLB. While on the show Shane was playing in Minor League baseball, but lately it seems like he’s given up on that dream and has taken a page from his mother’s book instead! Shane is now working as a realtor according to a press release at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Laguna Niguel office. In addition to real estate, Keough has also picked up a few gigs as an actor. A quick glance at his IMDB page shows that he’s taken on some small roles in small movies like Spare Change, Naked Dragon, Capital Games and the television series, Broken at Love. On the relationship front, Shane has been dating Brittany McGowan who was Miss Nevada USA in 2015. The two seem to be head over heels for one another as his Instagram is full of pictures of them together!
3. Briana Culberson
Any fan of The Real Housewives of Orange County knows who Biana Culberson is! She still regularly appears on the show today, but her first appearances date back to 2006 in the first season. She’s the only daughter of long-time housewife, Vicki Gunvalson. Back in the first season, Briana lived at home with her mother and Vicki’s then-husband, Donn. Donn has since divorced Vicki and moved out of their home. As she grew up, Briana started a career as a successful nurse and even went on to spontaneously get married to her current husband, Ryan Culberson, which became a storyline on the show. The couple moved to Oklahoma, but just recently moved back to Orange County so that Briana could get better health care. She and her husband have two young boys named Troy and Owen. Briana continues to suffer with her health issues which have spanned the past few years. She recently had many enlarged lymph nodes removed and is now fighting an infection from the procedure. She is a stay-at-home mom while Ryan is a member of the Marine corps and is often deployed overseas.
2. Alexa & Raquel Curtin
Viewers got to see Lynne Curtin’s family go through a lot while they were on The Real Housewives of Orange County from 4 to 5. Not only was her family suffering from severe financial problems, but also marital issues and raising two teenagers on a reality television show. Fans could tell right away that Alexa and Raquel had a bit of a bad streak in them as they underwent plastic surgery while on the show, got tattoos and even tried to get drunk at an Orange County event. No one could forget that heartbreaking moment when the girls got served their parents eviction notice while filming for the show. Things have definitely changed a lot since those days! Lynne is no longer with her husband, and Raquel is now a mother! She has been modeling for an adult site called SuicideGirls and Alexa is involved in the adult entertainment industry working under the name “Jayden Taylors.” Lynne remains adamant that her daughters are no longer involved in the porn industry and it was just a temporary fix to get some money, but it seems that they still very much are.
1. Albie & Chris Manzo
Albie and his younger brother Chris Manzo were part of the lovable Italian Manzo family on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Viewers saw Chris and Albie as young adults who were trying desperately to build careers, live up to their family name and follow in their parents’ successful footsteps. They decided to pair up together and work on various business ventures, primarily their Italian restaurant, Little Town, which now has two locations, one in New York City and the other in New Jersey, as well as their company Blk Water. Unfortuantely, their Blk Water company hasn’t been as financially successful as they would have liked, but it’s still going strong! Their restaurant is definitely the main money maker in their partnership. Chris Manzo also recently wrote a children’s book called, “Oliver Brightside: You Don’t Want That Penny.” Today, fans can catch the brothers and their sister on Caroline’s spin-off series called Manzo’d With Children.
