Many of the women featured on The Real Housewives of Atlanta are some of the most-followed cast members in the entire Real Housewives franchise. The Atlanta spin-off came to Bravo after the network realized the juggernaut it had created with the Housewives shows set in Orange County and New York City. And when it came to the original cast of RHOA, those ladies absolutely delivered everything the viewers wanted to see, and more.
With NeNe Leakes breaking into mainstream culture following her introduction on Real Housewives of Atlanta, the sky became the limit not only for this series in particular, but for all of the shows existing within this franchise. Over the years, the cast of RHOA has undergone quite a few changes due to behind-the-scenes drama and serious fights between the stars. Alas, this show has been mostly consistent when it comes to delivering entertainment value to the longtime fans.

4. NeNe Leakes (3.7 million followers)
After establishing a new blueprint for Real Housewives cast members with her introduction on RHOA, NeNe Leakes has mostly stayed out of the show in recent times. NeNe’s original run on The Real Housewives of Atlanta took place between seasons 1 and 7. She then took a break for a few years and came back for season 10, but left yet again after season 12. In any case, NeNe is still followed by 3.7 million people on Instagram, making her one of the most popular reality TV stars ever.
3. Eva Marcille (4.4 million followers)
Eva Marcille was a more recent addition to the cast of RHOA, and her time on the show was pretty short-lived as well. After being featured in seasons 11 and 12, Eva bowed out of the show and seems to be leaving it in the rearview mirror for the time being. Nonetheless, Eva still does have 4.4 million followers on Instagram, which is incredibly impressive.
2. Porsha Williams (6.3 million followers)
After her introduction on Real Housewives of Atlanta season 5, Porsha Williams has become a mainstay cast member for this series. As a consequence, Porsha’s many years of reality TV have helped her garner 6.3 million followers on Instagram (as of this writing). This is almost double the number of followers that OG cast member NeNe Leakes has, which says a lot about how much Porsha has grown with the fanbase.
1. Kandi Burruss (8.7 million followers)
Kandi Burruss joined RHOA as early as season 2, and she’s now become the most-followed cast member from the show on Instagram. With 8.7 million followers, Kandi is arguably one of the most popular Real Housewives stars of all, even when comparing her to the other shows in the franchise. Kandi was just featured on The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13, and it feels like this reality TV superstar isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
