Real Housewives of Atlanta had its debut on the Bravo Network on October 7, 2008. Over ten years later, the Atlanta housewives continue to live their fabulous lives in Georgia's capital city in this incarnation of the popular reality TV franchise. The show has just finished airing its 11th season, containing 26 episodes.

Relationships, a staple of the `Real Housewives' shows, always take center stage as the ladies' love lives (and experiences) ride a perpetual rollercoaster up and down. 

If you're a fan of Housewives, you've probably wondered about the ages of reality television stars like Phaedra Parks and the other members of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast.

Much like the Hollywood Walk of Fame Beverly Hills stars, some of the stars of the addictive reality hit try to hide their ages and give the impression that they're younger than they really are. It helps that they take great care of themselves, have a staff of professionals making them look good, and perhaps rely on a little cosmetic help.

With a bit of sleuthing, however, it's possible to track down the years the RHOA stars were born, as well as their places of birth. The rundown below includes the ages of both current and previous cast members of the show as of early 2019.

Porsha Williams-Stewart

Porsha was born on June 22, 1981, in Atlanta, Georgia. Her birth name was Porsha Williams. She's 38 years old. 

Kim Zolciak

Kim is 41 years old. She was born Kimberleigh Marie Zolciak in Pensacola Florida on May 19, 1978. 

Kandi Burruss

Kandi, a regular for the 2019 season, was born Kandi Laniece Burress on May 17, 1976, in College Park, Georgia. Kandi is 43 years old. 

Phaedra C. Parks

Phaedra left the series before Season 10 premiered due to a scandal that she allegedly repeated vicious rumors about a fellow cast member. Phaedra was born on October 26, 1973, in Georgia and is 45 years old. 

Marlo Hampton

Marlo was born on February 7, 1972, which makes her 47 years old.

Kenya Moore

Kenya was born on January 24, 1971. That makes her 48 years old. Her birth name is Kenya Summer Moore. She was born in Detroit and was raised by her grandmother.

Sheree Whitfield

Sheree was born on January. 2, 1970 in Shaker Heights, Ohio. Sheree is 49 years old.

Lisa Wu Harwel

Lisa is 46 years old. She was born Sharon Millette in Inglewood, California on January 23, 1973.

Eva Marcille

Eva joined the cast in Season 10. She was born October 30, 1984, in Los Angeles. Her birth name is Eva Marcille Pigford and she is 34 years old. 

Wrapping Up

Unlike some reality shows where the stars skew younger, the "Real Housewives" franchise includes women from a more mature age group. Except for Porsha Williams-Stewart—who would be considered a millennial—the RHOA cast tends to fall squarely into the now-aging Generation X.

In a youth-obsessed culture, it's understandable that some women who work in Hollywood wouldn't want to disclose their ages. In fact, websites such as the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) have faced lawsuits for publishing the birth dates of actors and actresses. Women in the business complain that they suffer when their ages are published online because they're turned down for jobs.
