Ever wonder how old reality television stars such as Phaedra Parks and the other members of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast are? Some of the stars try to hide their ages and give the impression they're younger than they really are. It helps that they take great care of themselves and perhaps rely on a little cosmetic help.

With a bit of sleuthing, however, it was possible to find the years the RHOA stars were born as well as their places of birth.

This list includes the ages of both current and previous cast members of the show (as of February 2017).

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 falls 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 especially suffer when their ages are published online. They say they're turned down for jobs and miss out on other opportunities.

Given that many people turn to reality television to launch or revive careers in the entertainment industry, keeping one's age under wraps comes with the territory.
