IG Handle: @barbienox

What’s Her Deal: Despite modeling for brands like Forever21 Plus and Outdoor Voices, Barbie has still managed to remain relatively unknown to the public. The upside of her low-key fame is that she gets to say whatever the heck she wants on instagram, and boy does she ever!

Lena Finkel is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, and Tiger Beat. Her favorite Housewife is Bethenny Frankel (by far!), but when she’s not watching RHONY, you can probably find her hanging with her kitty Tom or tweeting at Sen. Chuck Schumer.
