10 Fun Facts You Didn't Know About RHOBH Newbie Kathryn Edwards!

Kathryn Edwards may be new kid on the block on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but we have learned even more info about Edwards. Besdies her connection to O.J. Simpson, here are some other fun facts that you didn't know about this former Elite model. Check them out below!

1. She's Not Originally From the 90210

Kathryn was actually born and raised in Wisconsin, and it looks like she's going to bring that down-to-Earth midwest attitude with her to RHOBH.

2. She Had an Impressive Modeling Career

We learned on RHOBH that Kathryn was once a big-time model who even ran into Yolanda Foster on castings. But to get the full idea of just how fierce Kathryn was, you've got to check out the throwback modeling pics she has posted on Instagram. Kathryn even has the distinction of posing in Nike's first "Just Do It" campaign.

3. She Was on Married with Children

Kathryn admitted on RHOBH that she never really caught the acting bug like her longtime friend Lisa Rinna. However, Kathryn did appear in the Married with Children episode "Dead Men Don't Do Aerobics" as one of the lovely sidekicks to TV fitness guru Jim Jupiter.

4. She Didn't Set Out to Marry a Football Player

Kathryn divorced Marcus after eight years of marriage and then married her current hubby Donnie Edwards, another former NFL player for the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs, in 2003. Clearly, football players are Kathryn's type, but that wasn't always the case. Kathryn "had grown up a basketball fan and had absolutely no interest in football," her first busband Marcus wrote in his autobiography.

5. Her First Wedding Was at O.J. Simpson's House

Though Kathryn maintains that a lot of what Faye wrote in her book Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted isn't accurate, it is true that she and her ex-husband Marcus were close to O.J. Kathryn even asked the former football star if the couple could have their wedding at his Brentwood, California home in 1993, and they exchanged vows under two big trees in O.J.'s backyard, according to Marcus' autobiography. A year later, Hard Copy got its hands on Kathryn and Marcus' wedding video and aired it during the coverage of O.J.'s trial.

6. She's Supports the Military

Kathryn's husband Donnie may not be in the NFL anymore, but he still keeps busy. Donnie serves as the director of community relations for The Greatest Generations Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting America's war veterans, and he has been involved with the organization since 2011.

7. She's a World Traveler

Take one look at Kathryn's Instagram feed, and you'll get some serious vacation envy. When she's not in Beverly Hills, Kathryn is doing some major globetrotting, hitting spots such as Deer Valley, Utah, London, Berlin, and Italy within just the past month.

8. She's an Animal Lover

We expect Kathryn and Lisa Vanderpump to hit it off, considering they both love their furry friends. She supported the RHOBH restaurateur's march to protest China's Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Kathryn also has pics of some amazing-looking animals all over her Instagram profile, from dogs to cheetahs to bees.

9. She Looks Like a RHONY's Aviva Drescher

Kathryn may be new to The Real Housewives franchise, but one Twitter user thinks she bares a striking resemblance to The Real Housewives of New York City alum Aviva Drescher. "TY very kind. Kathryn is gorgeous," Aviva responded on Twitter. Kathryn was similarly grateful for the comparison writing, "Thanks Aviva, I consider it a compliment, you're gorgeous!" Awww, can't you just feel the love?

10. This Is Her Biggest Weakness

Kathryn is a strong woman, but she does have her Kryptonite. "I'm a shoe fanatic," Kathryn said in the above video for "It's my biggest weakness." She's particularly wild about a lace-up pair of black Gianvito Rossi booties right now. However, her favorite shoe designer of all time is Manolo Blahnik. "I'm a Manolo junkie," Kathryn said.
