Bravolebs Embrace Instagram's Viral 10-Year Challenge and Show How They Aged (Or Didn't!)

Some Bravolebs straight up didn't age, while others showed off a few, erm, cosmetic enhancements.

Instagram's latest viral challenge had everyone digging through their photo archives this weekend, including plenty of Bravolebs. If you've checked social media lately, you might have spotted side-by-sides comparing recent photos with photos from a decade ago. It's called the #HowDidAgeHitYouChallenge, as folks look back on their styles from 10 years ago and how they've grown up since then.

The results are all over the map: some stars look eerily similar to the way they did a decade ago, while others are getting candid about what's changed since then (from hairstyles to Botox and nose jobs). Here's how Bravolebs joined in on the 2009 versus 2019 challenge that's swept Instagram:

2008 Vs 2018 #10yearchallenge

A post shared by Eva Marcille (@evamarcille) on

The Real Housewives of Atlanta beauty Eva Marcille posted a photo from a few years after she won America's Next Top Model, and she looked equally modelesque in her 2018 pic.

Cabaret singer Luann de Lesseps toasted a decade on The Real Housewives of New York City, writing: "Here’s me doing the 2009 versus 2019 challenge. Fun fact rhony s2 premiered in 2009! #timeflies"

Married to Medicine fitness fanatic and OBGYN Dr. Jackie Walters posted plenty of hand clap emojis for her "glowup" over the past 10 years.

Married to Medicine dentist Dr. Heavely Kimes got husband Dr. Damon Kimes in on the challenge.

Meanwhile, The Real Housewives of New Jersey daughter Ashlee Holmes Malleo is cracking us up with her very honest caption (and looking gorgeous in both pics). She wrote: "2009... back when there were only so many filters that you would sacrifice the whiteness of your teeth to look a little more tan... even if it was giving off more of a jaundice vibe — 2019... it isn’t Facetune... I got my nose done in 2010... shout out to @drkassir  Damn... 10 years... that’s a lot of Botox."

Ashlee wasn't the only one to have a little fun with the "How Hard Did Aging Hit You?" challenge. The Real Housewives of Potomac newlywed Candiace Dillard called her photo series: "The journey to find my eyebrows."

Meanwhile, The Real Housewives of Atlanta singer Kandi Burruss flashed back to her many hairstyles over the decade. And at first, RHOA mom-to-be Porsha Williams wasn't into the challenge, jokingly posting a meme that said "No one give a s---t about your age pics" with the caption "we all still ugly." Then she changed her mind in her next Instagram with two sexy bikini photoshoots more than a decade apart, writing: "Ok wait I care, found similar pose #SoSueMe #LoveYall."

Ten years later, Below Deck's Kate Chastain still has a love for turquoise jewelry. 

Ramona Singer also shared a #10YearChallenge post, proving that The Real Housewives of New York City pal is aging like fine wine. 

Rachel Zoe flashed back to two fabulous red carpet looks from the past decade, showing that not much has changed. 

Meanwhile, The Real Housewives of Dallas' D'Andra Simmons gave in and decided to post a flashback from a 2008 photo shoot next to a photo of her from New York Fashion Week in 2018. "A lot has changed in the last decade!" she wrote.
