‘RHOA’: Ranking All ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Stars Based on Instagram Followers
One of the most influential franchises of The Real Housewives is The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The peaches have been going strong for 13 seasons and continue to be one of the top-rated series on Bravo. Stars like Nene Leakes, Kandi Burrus, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore are pop culture icons and their memes are some of the most shared on social media. Over the course of the show’s history there have been 15 official housewives, but who is the most popular on Instagram?
15. DeShawn Snow: 27,496
DeShawn Snow is at the bottom of the list as the OG star only made an appearance in the first season as an official housewife. RHOA started in 2018 and social media was not big then as it is now.

14. Lisa Wu: 216,743

10. Shereé Whitfield: 999,235
Although Shereé Whitfield is one of the OG cast members and has many iconic moments on RHOA, she still hasn’t hit 1 million followers on Instagram. Whitfield is close to reaching the milestone and if she returns to Bravo for season 14 of the show, she will surpass it in no time. There’s a rumor that the former housewife will be getting a peach once again, which would be her third stint on the show. Whitfield has a housewife from the first season all the way through season 4. The star would later return for two more seasons starting with season 9.
