Inside The Homes Of The Real Housewives Stars

Few reality TV franchises have endured like "Real Housewives" has. From Atlanta to New York, by way of Beverly Hills, Dallas, New Jersey, and cities across the world, millions of viewers have watched in awe the trials and tribulations of the famous home-dwellers as they navigate relationships, love, and life. Despite the "Real Housewives" shows being known for their high-stakes drama, it's the relatability factor that keeps them endlessly popular. "We all have a mother like that, and we all have a friend like that, and we all say stupid things like that and we all forgive and don't forgive like that," says "Real Housewives of New York City" mainstay Jill Zarin to E! News.

However, there's one key difference between the lives of most people watching the "Real Housewives" shows and the people breaking up, making up, and flipping tables on our screens: the houses. The Housewives' homes offer up some of the most astonishing property on TV, and these sprawling mansions never fail to impress. With so much luxury, though, it's easy for these houses to blend into one. That's why here at House Digest we've put together a list of our favorite homes of the "Real Housewives" stars. Let's take a look inside.

Camille Grammer's home boasts a 56-foot swimming pool

Camille Grammer makes sure that she's sitting comfortably in her primary property. The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star bought her Brentwood Park estate in 2019 for a sizeable $5.85 million, according to Dirt. The six-bedroom, six-bathroom property, which stretches over almost 5,500 square feet, is decked out comfortably with the decor marrying New England Traditional chic and modern elegance. Dark hardwood floors run through the property, offset by the high, light ceilings and walls, particularly notable in one of the living spaces in which cream furniture is complemented by a grand piano.

Elsewhere on Grammer's property, a two-bed guest suite ensures that all of her visitors can relax in private. The outdoor area has a Mediterranean effect, with an outdoor eating area next to a 56-foot swimming pool and loungers, protected from prying eyes by a tree-lined perimeter. The property also boasts an entrance courtyard, adding to the European feel. It seems that Grammer has bounced back from property tragedies that have blighted her recently; in 2018, her former Malibu home, destroyed in the 2018 Woolsey fire, was sold for nearly $6 million, reports the New York Post.

Vicki Gunvalson is renovating the home of her dreams

For 14 years and seasons, Vicki Gunvalson kept "Real Housewives of Orange County" viewers coming back for more, with some epic moments along the way. Nowadays, though, Gunvalson is keeping busy by turning her newly-purchased California property into a dream home. The Coto de Caza estate was purchased in 2021 after selling her lake house in North Carolina, and Gunvalson has since been hard at work with renovations, as People shows. It's clear that it's been going well; her home is embracing lightness throughout, with her freshly-built kitchen boasting white marble countertops, white cupboards with gold handles (complemented by the gold tap), and a white backsplash in "the largest hexagon [she] could," as shown in a video tour on Gunvalson's Instagram.

Elsewhere in the kitchen, an impressive Thermador gas stove sits next to Gunvalson's large fridge. More recent posts on Instagram show that her living room is continuing the light aesthetic, with light sofas working with darker grey armchairs and cushions to create a tasteful color palette. A solid wooden table sits under a candelabra-effect chandelier in Gunvalson dining room, with a bar area tucked next to her tall framed art, highlighting the high ceilings.

Kyle Richards spent over $8 million on her Encino property

Few Real Housewives are as iconic as Kyle Richards. The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star has outlasted all of the original cast members on the show, and she's picked up some neat property on the way. Richards' residence, however, is not in the area that the show is named after; it's located a drive away over in Encino, in a property that she and husband, Mauricio Umansky, dropped $8.25 million on, according to Trulia. The 10,600 square foot property boasts eight bathrooms and seven bedrooms, with a 1,600 square foot guest house, eight fireplaces, and an enormous 800-square-foot balcony.

Richards' outdoor space is something to behold, too, with a lengthy pool lined with tasteful wooden sun loungers with black cushions, seen in a video posted for Bravo TV. The dining room is dominated by a mammoth table long enough for 14 guests to eat around, with an artistic brass chandelier hanging over, giving Richards' diners something to look at while they eat. And it wouldn't be "Real Housewives" without a trip to the bar; Richards' has you covered here, with a fully-stocked home bar in a stunning black and gold effect, as seen on YouTube.

Lisa Rinna's French Provincial home oozes vintage glamor

Lisa Rinna swapped "Days of Our Lives" for "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," and since joining the show in 2014 she's given audiences more than a few glimpses into her Beverly Hills home. The French Provincial style home goes for vintage glamour, with classical art, antique furnishings, and stone floors throughout, as shown in LA Home Magazine. Rinna and husband, Harry Hamlin, clearly understand that a house is meant to be built to last. "I wanted to build a house that got better as it got older," she explained. "The idea is that the chips and cracks that accumulated over time would add to the effect so it matured like a fine wine."

The classic style of the house can be seen in the living room, with comfortable old sofas and armchairs sitting around an enormous leather Ottoman seen in a YouTube tour of the home. The living space adjoins the dining space, where peach walls enclose a dark dining table with white fabric chairs around it. Rinna acknowledges Hamlin's design influence on the property as she walks us through it. "The fireplace: Harry. The paintings: Harry," she revealed — but it's clear Rinna adores living in the home, regularly posting Instagram updates of her dancing in it.

Teddi Mellencamp's huge kitchen features two separate islands

Like Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp has swapped the rolling roads of Beverly Hills for nearby Encino. Buying a modern farmhouse-style home in the area for $6.49 million in 2020, the property has extensive outdoor space (including, naturally, a pool, with a spa, putting green and waterfall), and sits across 8,550 square feet, says Realtor. With seven bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, the master suite comes with its very own built-in bar, as well as a walk-in closet.

The communal spaces are equally as impressive in Mellencamp's home. The enormous kitchen features two separate islands, and a downstairs bar sits next to a wine wall tucked under a grand staircase that stays in line with the gold-and-black aesthetic running throughout the house. The entrance hall that leads to the bar and living areas is dominated by a huge chandelier hanging from the 24-foot-tall ceilings, as seen in a video posted to Mellencamp's social media and reposted on Twitter. To keep everyone entertained, the property also comes equipped with a built-in movie theater, a game room, and a family room adjoining the outdoor spaces. We can see why Mellencamp made the move!

Kameron Westcott's Dallas home is a vision in pink

"Real Housewives of Dallas" star Kameron Westcott isn't afraid to make her home her own. Her Highland Park, Dallas property was sold after being listed for $5.125 million, as Compass shows, and one look at the Mediterranean-style property shows anyone why it was snapped up. Inside the property, Westcott made sure that the buyers got her full personality; there are splashes of pink throughout, including in the striking entrance hall and adjoining dining area, and her office space, which boasts pink zebra-print comfortable chairs sitting opposite an antique desk, as seen in People. "Kameron has built a pink empire in this house that everyone loves to escape into for just a minute to be refreshed from this crazy world," said Westcott's realtor, Kelli Macatee of Compass, as well as her friend.

Elsewhere in the property, there's a home theater, a three-car garage, and an elevator. The master suite favors blue and grey tones instead of pink, with a vaulted ceiling and dark-wood beams. Two rooms for Westcott's kids, Hilton and Cruise Westcott, are decked out with fairytale-inspired decor which the little ones are sure to love. The backyard opens up into a rustic-style patio, fountain, and barbecue area.

Garcelle Beauvais has her dream kitchen

Garcelle Beauvais may be a relatively new face on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," but the actress is wasting no time showing viewers her incredible home. The abode, which has a plaque outside reading "Sak Pasé" (a nod to Beauvais' Haitian heritage) opens into her "dream kitchen," decked out in white with an enormous island with a marble countertop, seen in a People home tour of the property. The white cabinets are spruced up by gold pulls, complemented by gold pendants hanging from the ceiling.

Throughout Beauvais' home, casual-chic is the watchword, with an entertaining space built for her friends and her to hang out in, with soft grey furnishings and a trendy, built-in rectangular fireplace. Up the winding staircase, Beauvais' art is on display, as well as a wall of portraits honoring her family. Having worked on "Real Housewives" during the COVID-19 pandemic, Beauvais sure spent a lot of time in her home, and she spoke about the experience with Forbes. "We're all set designers," she shared. "I think a lot of it was making sure the boys picked up their clothes, making sure [there was nothing] on the counter and what was behind you was not incriminating."

Crystal Kung Minkoff built her own home

A brand-new housewife in 2021, Crystal Kung Minkoff is throwing herself into the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" lifestyle and its associated activities. One of these is showing off her pad (natch), which she did in a video for Bravo TV. The Bel Air home is as luxurious as you'd expect from a Real Housewife star. Built by herself and her husband over around 9,000 square feet, Kung Minkoff's formal living room is pretty classy; vintage-looking printed curtains sit next to antique furniture, and Gothic-inspired black candelabra chandeliers hang above the sitting space.

It's the kitchen where Kung Minkoff comes alive. Saying that they spend around "99 percent of the time" in the space, the eye is drawn immediately to the huge island in the center, as well as the industrial-style hood above the oven. The classic style continues in here too, with a unique printed splashback and vintage-inspired faucets for the deep basin sink. The most breathtaking feature of the home, however, is the backyard, which is absolutely massive, an attached pergola from the house leading out to a lengthy pool. Next to it, there's a barbecue area with seating for over a dozen guests.

Sutton Stracke's home has Southern charm throughout

Sutton Stracke knows a thing or two about leveling up real estate. The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star listed her Los Angeles home for $8.95 million in 2020, having bought the property in 2012 for $7 million, says Realtor. You might think that with that tidy profit, Stracke would go even bigger, but her new Bel Air home came in at a much more modest $5.35 million, per Bravo TV. Despite the price drop, Stracke's not compromising anything. True to her roots, her new home exudes Southern style, with her living room pairing a piano with local art from her hometown of Augusta, Georgia. The dining room features a lengthy dark-wood table from New Orleans, originally built in the 1800s, around which she hosts big, family-style dinners.

Stracke's kitchen adjoins to the sitting room with a TV, featuring striking white armchairs with ornate blue printed patterns. In the master bedroom, the huge bed sits opposite the brick fireplace, with pink pillows offsetting the white sheets. And, in typical Los Angeles fashion, there's copious outdoor space, with a huge aqua-blue pool dominating the backyard.

You can rent out Luann de Lesseps' house

Ever wanted to live your own "Real Housewives" fantasy? Well, now you can, courtesy of "Real Housewives of New York City" star Luann de Lesseps: Her Sag Harbor home could be yours to rent for the summer, according to the New York Post. The 1835 home, built in a Greek Revival style, is set over 2,500 square feet, and you and the whole family can stay comfortably due to its four bedrooms and bathrooms. The home is the epitome of Hamptons elegance, with white-paneled walls adorned with ornate gold features and classic art, as seen in Architectural Digest.

Throughout the abode, there are white, wide-planked beams complementing the white window frames, with hardwood floors running through the open-plan downstairs space. The kitchen features a solid-wood dining table with patio doors that lead out onto a deck overlooking the water — and the property comes complete with its own dock. The home up for grabs while de Lesseps travels post-pandemic, as well as prepares for a string of cabaret shows; no doubt she'll come out with more than a few zingers during them!

Ramona Singer's master bath is a sight to behold

Ramona Singer is no stranger to the good things in life, but even by her standards, the "Real Housewives of New York" star takes it to the next level with her South Hamptons home. The six-bedroom, six-bathroom property sits on an acre of land, and the 7,000-square-foot property boasts ultra-high ceilings the moment you walk in, as seen on Realtor. The entrance hallway features an enormous chandelier, and opens up into the living space, with a bar area tucked away next to the tasteful light-grey furniture, and underneath ornamental vases big enough to fit a grown adult in.

Elsewhere, there's a gym, a game room, and a balcony overlooking the backyard, pool, and lake, per Bravo TV. It's the master bath that'll take your breath away, though: With 1,200 feet of space in the room, the marble floors lead to a free-standing bath, his and hers sinks, a skylight, an eight-foot-tall shower, and a separate, 360-square-foot en suite bathroom. Fancy taking up residence in Singer's house? Well, for $62,500 a month, you can, as the home is currently available to rent, according to Realtor.

Sonja Morgan's Upper East Side townhouse is a tasteful haven

While it's pretty common to see shots of sprawling, standalone mansions with acres of backyard space on the "Real Housewives" franchise, Sonja Morgan takes a different approach. The "Real Housewives of New York" cast member lives in a tasteful townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and like Bravo TV states, having recently listed the property for $10.75 million, Morgan has since decided to stay a while longer. It's little wonder why, as one look in the property, shown in a YouTube home tour, shows how special it is. Upon immediately entering the property, you can see through to the garden, a chic space that emphasizes the Parisian-style exterior of the house, and has ivy crawling up the walls, completed by cherub statues flanking the pond.

In Morgan's townhouse, there's a '20s-style elevator to take you up to the kitchen. The dark-wood cupboards showcase her crockery and in the cooking space, there's a huge range cooker opposite an island. Morgan's master bathroom features a clawfoot free-standing bath and a bidet (in which Morgan says she does her laundry!), and the bedroom contains a four-poster bed, designed by Morgan based on one she saw in the White House.

You'll never see a house like Heather Dubrow's estate

Okay. So there are "Real Housewives" houses, and then there's Heather Dubrow's house. In a world of opulence and wealth, Dubrow takes it to the next level, with a Newport Beach home worth a modest $21 million and spread over 22,000 square feet, says Bravo TV. It's hard to know where to begin with this one, but the home, with an infinity pool overlooking the sea, comes with a whopping 14 bathrooms, seven bedrooms, a home theater, a BBQ pavilion, and a 30-foot high entrance hall. Just a little space, then.

A YouTube tour of the Dubrow house shows how truly jaw-dropping and utterly enormous it is. The dining room, for example, is the ultimate in luxury, with a classy chandelier hanging from the cavernous ceiling above the black table and chairs. On one side of the room is a fireplace set into the wall with grey marble tiling running up to the ceiling; on the other, an entire wall of champagne, with dozens of Veuve Cliquot bottles set in a refrigerated room, with unique crystal box lighting, tastefully illuminating the luxury bubbly. Heather, when can we drop by for a drink?!

Lisa Vanderpump's Beverly Hills mansion is stately and elegant

It wouldn't be a "Real Housewives" article without Lisa Vanderpump. The legendary "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" alum has cemented her place in reality TV history with a string of iconic moments, but when she's not doing that, she kicks back in her 8,801 square foot home in Beverly Hills, as seen on Realtor. The home, named Villa Rosa, was bought in 2011 for almost $12 million and is worth significantly more now, states Cosmopolitan. And with eight bathrooms, five bedrooms, and a two-acre lot, there's plenty of space for Vanderpump to reflect on her legacy.

Designed by Abramson Teiger, the open-plan home features an expansive reading room with library space and dark-wood paneled walls. The exterior of the home has a Roman effect, with oversized steel windows overlooking the canyon, and with the outdoor space leading down to a swimmer's pool. There's also extensive outdoor living space, with ample seating. The master suite contains a four-poster bed, with the spa-like master bath coming with a balcony and vintage furniture. While the property is almost impossibly grand, there are pockets of coziness throughout, like in a snug living area that overlooks the canyon views.
