Part of the fun of watching any Real Housewives series is following along with your favourite Housewives online and watching the drama unfold on social media in real-time before reliving it on the show.
Social media and “the blogs” have undoubtedly become a huge part of the Housewives narrative, as fights go down, cross-franchise friendships form and the stars get feedback from the fans. But who, out of all the Housewives current and past, reigns supreme on social media? We’re counting down the list of the top 10 most-followed Real Housewives on Instagram, based on their follower count at the time of writing.
1 / 10
10. Kim Zolciak Biermann – 3.3 million followers
Don’t be tardy to the Instagram party. At number 10 is the former Real Housewives of Atlanta and Don’t Be Tardy star (and recent The Masked Singer contestant). @Kimzolciakbiermann shares plenty of throwback shots from her time on RHOA, photos of her large family and a thirst trap here and there.
2 / 10
9. Lisa Rinna – 3.5 million followers
Love her or hate-follow her, @lisarinna is entertaining over 3.5 million followers on Instagram. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is known for her uncanny ability to keep it real, and that’s just what she does on her (slightly messy) Instagram account. Expect to see plenty of her entrepreneurial ventures, from lip kits to Rinna Wines and plenty of her signature dance moves.

8. Yolanda Hadid – 3.8 million followers
The former supermodel and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star makes it on the list of the top 10 most-followed Housewives of all time. Her account is wellness-focused, with plenty of advice from the Dutch-born star. She also is famously proud of her three children, Bella, Gigi and Anwar, and often posts proud mama shots of the talented trio. @Yolanda.hadid also shares travel shots and photos of life on the farm.

The newly single former RHOA star is at nearly 4 million Instagram followers. Followers of @cynthiabailey can watch her self-love journey of positivity, beauty and happiness.

5 / 10
6. Kyle Richards – 4 million followers
While it may be debatable whether she’s the queen of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she is undoubtedly the queen of Instagram when it comes to her diamond-holding co-stars. Kyle sits at 4 million followers, sharing looks at her media appearances, her upcoming feature in the Halloween movie, and some blast-from-the-past throwback shots. @Kylerichards18 also shares photos of her famous family, from sisters (and co-stars) Kathy and Kim to husband Mauricio and their daughters (who are now reality stars in their own right on Buying Beverly Hills).
6 / 10
5. NeNe Leakes – 4.3 million followers
The top five kicks off with the former queen of Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe has made a number of media appearances on shows like The Celebrity Apprentice, Dancing With the Stars and even Glee. Now that she’s not a regular on reality TV, @neneleakes is giving followers a look into her life, including her new love, celebrity friends and plenty of glamorous selfies.
7 / 10
4. Larsa Pippen – 4.5 million followers
The Real Housewives of Miami (and OnlyFans) star comes in fourth place in the Instagram followers chart. @Larsapippen’s Instagram page is full of glamorous modelling shots and selfies of the star, including some sneaky hints of her new relationship with basketball royalty Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus Jordan (because Larsa is known to move in the basketball world).
8 / 10
3. Eva Marcille – 4.9 million followers
In third place is this former Real Housewives of Atlanta star. The model and winner of America’s Next Top Model sits pretty at nearly 5 million followers, but don’t expect to just see high fashion modeling shots from @evamarcille. What can you expect from her page? It’s essentially a meme page, with lots of comedy reposts and a few personal posts of her life and family scattered in.
9 / 10
2. Porsha Williams – 7.1 million followers
The reign of the RHOA stars continues with Porsha nabbing the #2 spot (with over 2 million more followers than her former co-star in third!). The former Housewife’s multiple appearances across the Bravo network helped boost her exposure (from Bravo’s Chat Room to her spin-off, Porsha’s Family Matters). Followers of @porsha4real can expect her content to live up to her handle, with an inside look at her life, plus plenty of photos of her social justice and charity work.

1. Kandi Burruss – 10.1 million followers
You know you’re the one when you have an OG handle, and @kandi is just that. She’s been a notable force in the entertainment industry long before her tenure on Real Housewives of Atlanta, so it’s no surprise her follower count reflects that. From her days in girl group Xscape to winning The Masked Singer to her entrepreneurial ventures, Kandi is a workforce that doesn’t stop, and over 10 million fans love following along. Her Instagram is a mix of media appearance highlights, produced comedy shorts and personal photo dumps that feature some A-list friends.
