A relationship with our favorite Housewives transcends beyond television. For years we have invited the 'Wives and their friends and family into our homes. We've witnessed touching milestones like proposals, weddings, and births. To us, the Housewives are family, so excuse us as we sit back to reminisce about the good ole days when Portia Umansky was just a cute little toddler and the Manzo brothers were everyone's college crush. Believe it or not, life goes on even after the cameras go off, and the kids of the Real Housewives have grown up before our very eyes.
1. Avery Singer
The apple of Ramona Singer's eye, Avery Singer was only 13 years old when The Real Housewives of New York premiered in 2008. Avery will be a senior at the University of Virginia in the fall. (We can't imagine how ramotional Ramona is about it!)
2. The Giudice Girls
What would The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been without Teresa Giudice's darling daughters in their matching outfits and oversize hair accessories? We've really watched these girls grow up, from Audriana's birth to Gia's modeling career. The four Giudice sisters are definitely different from when we first met them. Need proof? Gia is already in high school!
3. Riley Burruss
We knew Riley as Kandi Burruss' only daughter and pride and joy who was soft-spoken next to the loud ladies of Atlanta. These days, Riley is officially a teenager and most recently has been travelling the globe, according to her Instagram.
4. The Umanksy Girls and Farrah Aldjufrie
Kyle Richards' four daughters have certainly been up to a lot since their start on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Although we saw her oldest, Farrah Aldjufrie, graduate on television, she now works alongside her step-dad Mauricio Umansky.
5. Brielle and Ariana Biermann
The OGs of the now large Biermann clan, Brielle and Ariana Biermann were by their mom's side through The Real Housewives of Atlanta and now on Don't be Tardy. Brielle has gone from a preteen to a full-on bombshell.
6. The Manzo Kids
You're lying if you say you didn't have a crush on the Manzo boys. We feel lucky to have been able to share their various business successes and life experiences. As for sister Lauren, she is no longer a Manzo, marrying her longtime sweetheart Vito Scalia last July.
7. Briana Culberson and Michael Wolfsmith
We've gotten to know Vicki Gunvalson's kids quite well over the past 11 seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County. These days Briana is happily married with two children and Michael is following in his mother's footsteps as a life insurance broker at Vicki's Insurance company.
8. Lexi Ioannou
We immediately fell in love with Dina Manzo's daughter Lexi, who is a tween no more. A high school graduate, Lexi attends Fordham University and has certainly found her voice.
9. Noel and Victoria de Lesseps
We met Victoria as a young equestrian on The Real Housewives of New York. Nowadays both Victoria and her brother Noel are budding artists, showcasing their works on Instagram and the Countess' personal website.
10. Gigi Hadid
When we first met Gigi on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills she was a high school student, but a few short years later her and her two siblings, Bella and Anwar are now full-fledged models, following in mom's footsteps.
11. Ashlee Holmes and CJ and Nicholas Laurita
Jacqueline Laurita's kids have certainly changed from their first appearances on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Ashlee has gone from feuding with her mother to becoming a mother-to-be and successful makeup artist. This season, we've also been able to see huge milestones for Jacqueline's youngest son, Nicholas.
