Where Did The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast Go to College?

We're taking a look at the lives of the RHOBH cast before they stepped in front of the Bravo cameras.

By Jenny Berg & Jocelyn Vena

There's no doubt about it: The spotlight just finds the ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As we've learned over the years, the 90210 group consists of a talented bunch of businesswomen and entertainment industry queens. Between the current Season 13 cast, the ladies juggle acting, modeling, fashion design, entrepreneurship, and motherhood like it's no big deal.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Where did they learn to do all this, you ask? Some of the women headed straight from high school into their chosen professions and quickly found success, while several of the other cast members headed off to pursue college degrees after they graduated from high school.

Keep on scrolling to take a trip back in time and take a look back at the RHOBH ladies' lives before Bravo.

Where did Dorit Kemsley go to college?

Long before she was designing rooms at famous restaurants and launching swimwear and bridal collections, Dorit received her bachelor's degree in marketing, design, and communication, which she earned at Quinnipiac University. Upon graduation, she put that degree right to work, moving to Italy to work in the fashion industry. 

Where did Sutton Stracke go to college?

In the years before she could name 'em with the best of them, Sutton attended the John S. Davidson Fine Arts High School and then Converse College in Spartanburg, SC. Later, Sutton was busy building her resume with a varied career that has spanned the arts and fashion.

Where did Crystal Kung Minkoff go to college?

Crystal grew up in the Los Angeles area and got her degrees in biology and history from the University of California, Irvine. (NBD.) She is now a busy mom and her bustling career includes running her successful coconut water business, Real Coco.

Where did Annemarie Wiley college?

According to her bio, "The competitive athlete excelled in track and basketball, all while earning her nursing degree. An in-demand nurse anesthetist, Annemarie helps patients at surgical centers throughout the Los Angeles area."

She previously posted an Instagram that broke down the education a nurse anesthetist undergoes: "CRNAs are Doctorate prepared anesthesia providers, completing a 3 year anesthesia program and residency... 4 year Bachelors Degree in Nursing (BSN)."

Where did Erika Jayne go to college?

Erika knew she was bound for the spotlight at an early age. The "Pretty Mess" singer moved from her Georgia hometown at 18 to pursue singing in New York City. Now, of course, she's Erika Jayne with a Las Vegas residency on her resume.

Where did Kyle Richards go to college?

There seems to be a theme among the RHOBH 'Wives: a flair for the dramatic! As you may have heard, Kyle was a child actor and had begun landing iconic gigs at a very young age (Halloween, anyone?).

Kyle has been booked and busy since before she could drive! 

Where did Garcelle Beauvais go to college?

Garcelle, much like Kyle and Erika, launched her entertainment career at a young age and has since become one of the most recognizable names in the industry. Per her bio, "Garcelle launched a decade-long modeling career at 17, which took her around the world and gave way to her storied acting career when she booked her first gig on Models, Inc."

The rest is, as they say, Hollywood history.
