You’ll Never Believe These Reality TV Stars Are Over 50
They say that age is nothing but a number and these reality stars certainly prove it. Not only do many of them run around town partying, making us forget how old they truly are, but we just can’t get over how young some of them look.
Whether it’s great genetics or amazing plastic surgery, some of these women don’t look like they have aged in the past 20 years. You’ll never believe these reality TV stars are over 50.
1. Shannon Beador
After The Real Housewives of Orange County star found out her husband of nearly 20 years was cheating on her, the California native struggled to deal with the aftermath. In doing so, Shannon Beador gained 40 pounds and ultimately divorced her husband.
While the reality star initially blamed co-star Vicki Gunvalson for her weight gain, she eventually admitted that the weight gain was of her own doing. But Beador worked hard and dropped all 40 pounds. And she just might look better than ever, (although that might have more to do with the other 200 pounds she dropped, ahem David Beador). If you can believe it this real housewife is 55 years old.

2. Kyle Richards
Kyle Richards has been stirring up drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2010. In addition to being a regular on the Bravo show, Richards has appeared on several other reality shows, including Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The New Celebrity Apprentice, and The Simple Life, starring her niece, Paris Hilton.
Richards worked as an actress before becoming a reality star. The half-sister of Kathy Hilton appeared in 19 episodes of Little House on the Prairie and had a 21-episode run on ER. Her birth certificate might say she’s 50 years old, but she definitely doesn’t look it.

3. Lisa Rinna
It’s hard to believe that Lisa Rinna will be 56 this year. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Days of Our Lives alum has always been a stunner. The actress from Medford, Oregon still looks smashing as ever as she flaunts it all in barely-there bikinis on Instagram.
Rinna has played Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives off and on for nearly 30 years. She has also starred in several TV movies and even guest starred with her husband Harry Hamlin on the cult classic Veronica Mars, playing Logan Echolls’ mom, Lynn Echolls.

4. Tamra Judge
Another housewife that just doesn’t seem to age. Tamra Judge looks more like she’s in her forties, rather than her real age – 51! Tamra has been on Real Housewives of Orange County since season 3 of the show. She also starred in the spinoff series, Tamra’s OC Wedding which followed the reality star as she prepared to husband No. 3.
Judge married 46-year-old businessman Eddie Judge in 2013. The couple opened CUT Fitness together. They frequently post videos on Instagram showing their workouts, leaving no question where Tamra gets those killer abs.

5. Lisa Vanderpump
Lisa Vanderpump is arguable Bravo’s biggest reality star. In addition to starring on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump also is the star of the hit show Vanderpump Rules. Vanderpump Rules follows her as she manages her West Hollywood restaurants, Sur, TomTomp, and PUMP.
Before joining RHOBH, Vanderpump opened over 30 restaurants across London and California with her husband Ken Todd. Vanderpump is one of the oldest on our list, coming in at 58 years old, but she definitely doesn’t look it.

6. Dina Lohan
Dina Lohan has been capitalizing on her daughter Lindsay Lohan’s fame ever since she broke onto the scene in 1998’s Parent Trap. Lohan had a small cameo in the film playing “woman in the airport.”
Lohan has had almost as much personal drama has her daughter, spending a substantial amount of time in the tabloids for her divorce with her husband Michael Lohan and her 2013 arrest for driving under the influence.
In 2008, Lohan appeared with her youngest daughter Ali in the reality show Living Lohan. She has also appeared in Lindsay, Family Therapy with Jenn, and 2019’s Celebrity Big Brother. Lohan turns 57 later this year.

7. Cynthia Bailey
Before joining the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey was a successful model, with contracts with Maybelline, Oil of Olay, and Target. Her ageless beauty might have had something to do with her success in the modeling industry because the reality star is an unbelievable 52 years old.
In 2010, Bailey joined the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She subsequently opened her own modeling studio in 2011 and appeared in numerous music videos and movies including Sharknado: The Fourth Awakens.

10. Kelly Bensimon
We still need proof that Kelly Bensimon is 52 years old. From her rock-hard abs to her flawless face, Bensimon looks stunning. She was never afraid to bring the drama during her three-season run on The Real Housewives of New York. Her constant fights with her co-stars led to high-level drama and likely played a part in her leaving the show in 2011.
Though we no longer see the reality star on the small screen, Bensimon keeps her fans updated through her Instagram account and is never shy to weigh in on current events.

11. Abby Lee Miller
Abby Miller stepped onto the scene in 2011 when TLC debuted the overnight sensation Dance Moms. Though the show focuses on what it takes to become a dancer and stand out in the field, much of the drama comes from the interactions between the moms and the coach behind the scenes.
Fans were initially caught off guard with how loud and brutally honest Miller was, but that is ultimately what made the show a success. The 52-year-old has had a rough ride lately. In 2017, Miller served 366 days in jail for bankruptcy fraud. Then in 2018, Miller was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Long Island Medium has captivated audiences since it debuted on TLC in 2011. As a medium, Theresa Caputo connects people with lost loved ones. Caputo says she has had this “gift” since age four and has always been able to see and feel things others couldn’t. She has used her gift to help people across the country, including many celebrities. When the show debuted, Caputo was 44 years old with a teenager and college student. It’s hard to believe that Caputo is now 52-years-old with two children over 25.

Since her divorce, de Lesseps has had some personal struggles. She remarried and filed for divorce after 7 months of marriage. She also was arrested for public intoxication and assaulting an officer. Most recently, de Lesseps was sued by her ex-husband and two children for failing to set up a trust after selling her New York home. Things appear to be going well for the reality star now, and even after all that drama, she doesn’t look anywhere near 54. Especially when on stage performing at her cabaret show.
