Real Housewives Kids That Deserve Their Own Show

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

The women who have appeared as cast members on the "Real Housewives" franchise have given us so much entertainment over the years, but so too have their children. Dynamic kids can help a Real Housewife craft home scenes that feel not just authentic, but also worthy of our viewership. Whether a cast member is fighting with their teenager or reeling in a precocious grade schooler, we are here for all of it.

There have been dozens of children who have appeared on the "Real Housewives" over the years, with some getting more camera time than others. Certain shows like "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" tend to heavily focus on families, whereas others, like "The Real Housewives of Dallas," are less about the kids. Most cities have at least some degree of parental interactions and, at times, children have been a cast member's driving storyline. We have seen over-the-top birthday parties, graduations, and budding careers, and we have also been witness to the super personal stuff, like "Real Housewives" stars dealing with their kids' eating disorders, arrests, coming out— even parental estrangement, as was the case for "RHOC" star Tamra Judge. We have often wished to see more of our favorite Bravo kids, particularly as they age out of the family home. Here are some "Real Housewives" children whose spinoffs we would watch.

The Hadids could give a peek into the modeling world

Compared to other "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" families, they were not on the show for an especially long time, but Yolanda Hadid (then Foster) and her three children certainly made their mark on the franchise. The Hadids were featured on "RHOBH" from Season 3 through Season 6, during which time we were able to see the budding start of their modeling careers, as well as Yolanda and her kids' Lyme Disease diagnoses. Of the three siblings, oldest daughter Gigi Hadid fascinates us most, as she has become such a popular professional model that, as she told InStyle, she now turns down magazine covers. Younger sister Bella Hadid is a bonafide supermodel in her own right, though, and brother Anwar Hadid is also in the business, so they could have a fantastic modeling-centered reality show.

The Hadid siblings are certainly the most famous kids to have ever come from the "Real Housewives" universe, and we are deeply interested in seeing behind the curtain. Their dating lives alone are reality show worthy: Gigi has a baby with Zayn Malik (who was charged with harassing both Gigi and her mother Yolanda), Anwar was in a longterm relationship with pop star Dua Lipa, and Bella is dating an art director after a years-long relationship with The Weeknd. With their built-in crew of famous friends, like Taylor Swift, Hailey Baldwin, and Kendall Jenner, we would watch just for the celeb cameos alone.

The Hamlins could show their journeys

As much as we want the Hadid siblings to have a show, we are not convinced they would do it, given their level of celebrity. But we are fairly confident Amelia Gray Hamlin and Delilah Belle Hamlin — daughters of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Rinna and actor Harry Hamlin — would be more game for such an adventure. (You don't date Scott Disick if you are not at least somewhat cool with the reality TV world.) Like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Amelia and Delilah are both models.

Rinna joined "RHOBH" in Season 5 and has remained with the show ever since. Her children have been featured quite a bit over the years, though they are less frequently shown now that they have moved out of the family home. They have also been quite vulnerable and shared important stories with the viewers, such as Amelia's struggle with anorexia and Delilah's struggles with anxiety and depression. In June 2019, Amelia wrote a piece for Glamour in which she credited "coming out" publicly as anorexic with helping keep her from relapsing. We can't help but think that a show centered on body positivity and positive mental health could do wonders for a generation that struggles with social comparison amidst the façade of social media reality. Amelia moved to New York in 2021, so we don't know how logistics would work, but Bravo can figure that part out.

Kyle Richards' kids could do a Selling Sunset-esque show

We promise, this is our last set of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" sisters on our list. How could we forget about Kyle Richards' gorgeous brood? Because Richards has been on "RHOBH" since it started production in 2010, we have seen her clan evolve and her children blossom. Richards has three daughters with her husband Mauricio Umansky — Alexia, Sophia, and Portia Umansky — as well as a daughter from a previous relationship, Farrah Aldjufrie. While 13-year-old Portia is still a little too young for a full show dedicated to her life, we would totally watch a reality series focused on the older three sisters.

It turns out, we are not the only ones who are interested: When the trio tended bar on a 2022 episode of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," a viewer asked about a spinoff. 

While all of the siblings benefitted from their privilege and two of them work for patriarch Mauricio's real estate company, we are just impressed that they actually work — not a given as far as Bravolebs are concerned. Aldjufrie is a UCLA grad who has been at The Agency since Mauricio started it, Alexia graduated from Emerson College before joining the firm, and Sophia is a recent George Washington University graduate who may or may not follow in her sisters' footsteps. We envision a hybrid of "The Hills" and "Selling Sunset," though Bravo would need to bring in some side characters for drama because the sisters seem relatively well-adjusted.

Frank Catania Jr. would be a charming reality show lead

There are many reasons to love Frank Catania Jr., but let's start with the obvious: the boy is gorgeous. Little Frankie — not to be confused with his father, Frank Catania Sr. — is into bodybuilding, so that could be one avenue for a show. Remember when we saw Frankie take on the same competition that Teresa Giudice entered back in Season 9 of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey"? 

We first met Frankie when his mother Delores Catania became a full-time cast member on "RHONJ" back in Season 7. In addition to bodybuilding, we know the guy to be kind, smart, and funny. Frankie was a high school student when his mom joined the show, and he has since gone on to graduate from Sacred Heart University. As he shared on "Watch What Happens Live," he scored a gig working for Luis Ruelas at real estate firm Revolve Capital. We also saw him studying for his GMAT on the reality series, so perhaps a show that follows him to business school could be interesting — particularly if it is somewhere warm with plenty of pool scenes, a la "The Bachelor." In fact, we would totally watch a Frankie Jr. dating show, too.

Riley Burruss has a good handle on the reality TV world

Kandi Burruss has been a staple of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" since its second season, all the way back in 2009. This means that we have been watching her for more than decade and, in that time, we have seen her get married and grow her family, adding two adorable kids named Ace and Blaze. But we have also seen her older daughter, Riley Burruss, evolve throughout this time, going from a shy young girl to an outgoing college student who isn't totally averse to being on reality TV. As she said on a May 2022 episode of "Watch What Happens Live," "I try not to [watch 'RHOA'] because [Kandi] can be a little explicit, but you know, if I'm on there, I like to watch it."

In 2020, Riley began attending New York University, and her life in The Big Apple seems like the perfect setting for a show (we saw Kandi move her into an amazing apartment, so we are not talking dorm living). Riley's stepsister Kaela Tucker would be a great supporting player, and we presume she has friends who could round out the rest of the cast. 

Since Riley has grown up on TV, she has a realistic take on it all. As she told Bravo Insider, "I think I've probably learned not to let other people judge what they don't truly know. So don't care too much about other people's opinions because, of course, they see you and have their own view of you in their head."

The Dubrow twins could follow in their parents' footsteps

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" cast member Heather Dubrow has four children with her husband, plastic surgeon and fellow reality star Terry Dubrow, but it is their two older children that seem the most prepped for reality television stardom. Teenage twins Max and Nicholas Dubrow are headed off to university in the fall of 2022 — according to her Instagram, Max selected Tufts University, while Nicholas picked Loyola Marymount — so this may not be the ideal time for it, but we do hope that we one day get to see them on their own platform. Max, in particular, seems like a solid fit for a show, and her heavy presence on Season 16 of "RHOC" proved she would be up for the challenge.

Max was highlighted numerous times on Season 16, as she published a book, "I'll Give It to You Straightish: What Your Teen Wants You to Know," that was promoted on the show. Her bisexuality also became a storyline when Noella Bergener tried to connect with Max over it, but accidentally gifted the teen with a sexually explicit game that angered her mother. Nicholas has been featured less than his twin sister, but also seems to have an ease in front of the camera — as one would expect, given that he was not even in the double digits when his family first appeared on "RHOC" back in 2012.

Quincy Adams Morgan could share her glam life

Sonja Morgan has appeared on 11 seasons of "The Real Housewives of New York City," but in all that time, we have never seen her daughter, Quincy Adams Morgan. Sonja has, of course, discussed her daughter, but she is one of the few "Real Housewives" stars who has kept their kid off screen. This was perhaps at least partially because, as People noted, Quincy attended a swanky boarding school in Connecticut, so she was not often at home. Even if she was around, there's still a good chance she wouldn't have been featured on the series. As Sonja told Page Six in 2021, "I worry for my daughter, which is why she hasn't been on the show."

Despite never seeing her on "RHONY," we do know a fair amount about Quincy from the media and her own socials. Per People, she is a student at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania, studying something in the arts. We assume it has something to do with visual art, as Quincy has proven herself a fantastic artist over the years. It is also clear from her personal Instagram that she loves dressing up, parties, and a good vacation — all of which would make her perfect for a reality show. We could see Quincy joining "Summer House" or another ensemble show, but we would be just as interested to get a glimpse inside the life of privileged Ivy Leaguers at UPenn.

Milania Giudice and Antonia Gorga are a fun duo

Teresa Giudice is the only original cast member of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" still on the show, and we have been through the wringer with her over the last 12 seasons. When the Guidice clan made their debut in 2009, they were a family of five. Teresa and ex-husband Joe Giudige then had a fourth child, bringing them up to six, and Teresa's four daughters have been a massive part of "RHONJ" ever since. While oldest daughter Gia Giudice might seem like the easy fit for reality TV — given that she has gotten into the muck with other cast members, including Margaret Josephs and her uncle Joe Gorga — she all but feels like a main cast member of "RHONJ" already. Second daughter Gabriella Giudice is a little too quiet and youngest Audriana Giudice is a little too young, which leaves us with the always-opinionated Milania Giudice.

Melania has always been the ham in the family, and there are countless YouTube clips to prove it. Her relationship with her same-age cousin Antonio Gorga, daughter of "Real Housewives" star Melissa Gorga and Teresa's brother Joe, would be perfect for a "double trouble" type of show. Though their parents may have their ups and downs, the cousins' bond is strong. As Milania once said of Antonia on Instagram, "my built in best friend."

Kairo Whitfield could showcase his showbiz career

Kairo Whitfield was just a kid when we met him on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," but he is now all grown up and a college graduate. While his mother Shereé Whitfield has appeared as a main cast member on the show for a total of seven non-consecutive seasons (as well as one as a "friend" and one as a "guest"), Kairo has not always been front and center. Per his IMDb, he has only appeared in 31 episodes himself, though that has certainly been enough to pique our interest. While we are not sure he can bring as much drama as needed, that's nothing a good supporting cast can't help with.

We saw Kairo — whose dad is former NFL player Bob Whitfield — take on modeling while on "RHOA," which seemed like a great fit for the 6'7" stunner, but he now appears to be focused on other avenues. "These days, I've been making music for a while. I just graduated from Morehouse last year," Kairo told Andy Cohen on the "Watch What Happens Live After Show" in May 2021. "But I've been making music. I have one project out, but more should be coming this summer." What's more, Shereé revealed on "RHOA" Season 14 that Kairo landed a gig with Tyler Perry Studios in the wardrobe department. We would love a spinoff focused on Kairo's work and social life as he tackles the entertainment business and sets Atlanta on fire.

Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo could give TV another shot

It has been years since the Manzo family has been on TV, but we still miss them on our screens. When "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" started back in 2009, we fell in love with not only Caroline Manzo, but her whole family. "RHONJ" has always been more family-focused than some of the other cities in the "Real Housewives" stable, and Caroline's kids were always game for whatever was thrown their way. Eventually, the whole family was given a spinoff called "Manzo'd with Children," and brothers Albie and Chris were so heavily featured that they even received their own six-episode online show, "Boys to Manzo."

The Manzo spinoff ended in October 2016, but the boys still appear to be cute, funny, and comfortable in the spotlight. Albie has over 370,000 Instagram followers and an advice podcast called "Dear Albie." Chris opened up Tenth Street Pizza in Hoboken, New Jersey, which is also where the boys lived for part of their "RHONJ" run. As noted, the brothers are also owners of the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel, which they renovated in 2020, and perhaps a few more businesses, as Albie's LinkedIn lists two other active companies. 

Sure, the show could highlight their professional lives, but some sort of "Manzo'd in Love" show that follows their — you guessed it — love lives could be a fun watch. Their former roommate and best friend Greg Bennett is also in love, so he would be a perfect co-star.

Pandora Sabo could show another part of LVP's empire

The earliest seasons of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" are arguably some of the best the show has put out, and Lisa Vanderpump is arguably the greatest Housewife to ever come from Beverly Hills. Vanderpump's daughter, Pandora Sabo, appeared on 40 episodes of "RHOBH" alone, and we think she has what it takes to carry on her mother's reality television legacy with her own show. Pandora married businessman Jason Sabo back when LVP was still a cast member, and they became parents in 2021. We can easily imagine a show where Pandora is queen bee of a Beverly Hills mommy group.

What's more Pandora is heavily involved in her mom's businesses, particularly Vanderpump Dogs, where she serves as President of Marketing & Events. Vanderpump has noted time and time again how much Pandora has brought to her empire. At a 2019 Vanderpump Cocktail Garden event, for instance, LVP sung her daughter's praises to the Daily Mail. "She has been in all hours every day working her butt off," Vanderpump said.

We know that Pandora can handle her own when it comes to interpersonal drama, as she showed in her onscreen friendship with Stassi Schroeder, who wrote for her website at one point. We also know that she would bring the glitz and glam that we love to see from our Bravolebrities. Plus, we are dying to see what that Beverly Hills manse that LVP bought Pandora back in 2016 looks like now.

Rayvin Huger has the it factor

Since its 2016 premiere, "The Real Housewives of Potomac" has gone on to become one of the strongest "Real Housewives" series, and that's thanks to the stellar main roster. But may we not forget the supporting cast, which includes lovely husbands (Michael Darby, you aren't on that list) and adorable children. While many of the kids featured on the show are a tad too young for a spinoff, we believe Karen Huger's daughter Rayvin Huger has what it takes to lead a show of her own.

Karen has been on "RHOP" since Season 1 and, since Rayvin was in high school at that point, she lived at home for the first season of the show. Still, Rayvin's presence was never huge, and it was not until Karen's spinoff, "Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen's Grande Dame Reunion," that we became convinced that she could be a star in her own right. Rayvin has a perky, fun personality that we find infectious, and her chosen field of marketing could provide a great backdrop for a show like "The Hills" that blends career and social life. 

"I'm living in New York City, working in fashion, and loving it! The hustle and bustle was made for me, and I fit right in," she told Bravo Insider in April 2022. She's not kidding about fitting right in: In 2022, Rayvin attended the Met Gala and even shared a glam-tastic video of her time on the red carpet. Clearly, the Grande Dame's daughter's life would make for a fantastic reality show. 

Noelle Robinson's LA life sounds made for reality TV

Cynthia Bailey joined "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" in Season 3 and stayed on the show until Season 13, providing us with a decade of entertainment. Though Bailey's mother and her sister feature on the show, her home life has always been all about her daughter, Noelle Robinson. For years, it was just the two of them in the family home, and their relationship always had a "Gilmore Girls" quality that we adored. For example, we were deeply moved when Noelle came out to her mother as sexually fluid in a Season 13 episode, during a casual conversation in the car. "If you meet an amazing young lady, that's a blessing," Bailey told her. "If you meet an amazing young man, that's a blessing as long as they're good people and they love and support you."

Noelle now lives in Los Angeles and works as a model and content creator, which sounds like a fit for reality TV. Speaking of work, Noelle shared on "Watch What Happens Live" that her connection to the Bravoverse once cost her a gig at Nobu. "They're like, we don't want people noticing you at the job. That's not what it's about," she said. Eesh.

With nearly half a million Instagram followers, and the fact that there are very few sexual minority women on Bravo — particularly women of color — Noelle could provide something fresh and new for the network. We also adore her father Leon Robinson, so in an ideal world, he'd be there too.
