Real Housewives Who Are More Likable When They’re Off-Screen

Bravo is responsible for giving fans one of the best franchises in reality TV history. The Real Housewives are spunky, dramatic, mean, and often remind us of our own friends. Some, however, are way more likable off-screen than they are on-screen. This could be down to the hype of social media. Sometimes, producers manipulate scenes to make fans feel that one housewife is meaner than another. But since the stars control their social media, it is easy for them to let their true personality shine through.

For many Real Housewives of New York City viewers, Brynn Whitfield is hit or miss with her kitten-like attitude. In the series, she comes across as the group flirt who is willing to sleep with co-stars’ dads. Viewers have been annoyed with the socialite for trying to hit on Abe Lichy while at her friend’s anniversary party.

However, on her social media, Brynn is fun-loving, well-traveled, and shows off even more of her great humor. Brynn’s Instagram has fans coming back repeatedly to check out her soulful and colorful posts.

This season, Lisa Barlow has been getting a lot of hate, thanks to her glam outburst and confrontational behavior. Real Housewives of Salt Lake City fans were shocked to see Lisa’s tantrum when told to do her own makeup. However, if you head over to her Instagram, Lisa is soooooo (yes, I needed this many Os) fabulous!

Not only does she embrace her junk food lifestyle by posting with a Wendy’s Frosty and fries, she also shows off her love of family. Lisa’s social media gives off high fashion vibes, with many of her posts centering around her outfits. The queen of Sundance doesn’t let the opinions of others slow her down, making hers one of the more interesting accounts to scroll through.

Ashley Darby is likable on the Real Housewives of Potomac, but there are times she comes across as a pot stirrer and should probably carry her own personalized ladle. She is often found in the middle of most of the drama, but on social media, she seems to have a much more positive personality.

After her divorce from Michael Darby, the former beauty queen has started to post more selfies of herself enjoying life. She often posts updates with her two precious sons that have fans wishing they saw more of this on the series. 

Emily Simpson

The scapegoat of the Real Housewives of Orange County is often attacked for her ability to call people out on their bullshit—especially Fancy Pants. However, some fans are not thrilled with Emily Simpson‘s on-screen antics and often call for her removal from the cast.

Before you decide to squeeze the juice out of Emily’s orange, take a look at her grid, which shows a whole new side to the lawyer. Lately, Emily has been all about her fitness journey as she shares her good and bad days with followers. 

Kenya Moore

Kenya Moore twirls in and out of fans’ good graces when appearing on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but on her social media, the mother of one is pretty strategic. She often posts photos with her daughter, Brooklyn, which helps to show her in a caring light.

Kenya also reminds followers about her career achievements and she often shares flashbacks to her beauty pageant days and 90s movie roles. Kenya is also known for throwing shade at her co-stars, which has her sticking true to form since she loves causing drama on the series. 

Jackie Goldschneider

At times, Jackie Goldschneider was a mix between boring and miserable as Real Housewives of New Jersey fans found it extremely difficult to watch the Bravo personality. During her time on the show, Jackie came across as trying to play the victim during altercations, and fans weren’t taking the bait. However, on her social media, Jackie’s intellect shines through in such a positive way as she has been able to open up more about her eating disorder journey. No one was on her level from the franchise when it came to a battle of wits.

Jackie’s social media shows off her everyday family life, which has included vacations, back-to-school moments, and holidays. It is hard not to relate to Jackie when looking online because she seems like the most down-to-earth out of the entire Garden State franchise.
