The Real Housewives: Before They Were Reality Stars!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Real Housewives have been serving up juicy reality TV drama since back in 2006 when it all started in the OC. That's Orange County, of course.

Ah, it's hard to remember life before these ladies graced our screens ...

But there once was a time before the bling, fame, and public cat fights. We've got the epic pictures to prove it. Let's take a trip to the past, shall we?

You won't even believe the classic shots of big '80s hair, ridiculous outfits, and adorable baby pics that took place before any of them graced our screens.

Who's your favorite housewife? Who's aged the best, and worst?

Check out the best throwback photos of some of your favorite Real Housewives of Orange County, Beverly Hills, Atlanta, Miami, N.Y.C. and N.J. above!


Kyle is gorgeous. Kim is old and brain dead. Brandi is white trash. Lisa is class. Carlton is a witch and Joyce is nothing.

Didn't know them before or now. Have never watched a single Housewife show and probably won't. I am familiar with a couple of them who have broken from the show and appear on other programs.

Yolanda was by far the prettiest of the bunch. Absolutely stunning.
