#10: Danielle Busby
“OutDaughtered” (2016-)


We met Danielle in 2016 when she graced our screens as the matriarch of a new TLC family. Alongside her husband, daughter, and a set of girl quintuplets, she quickly captured our hearts as she navigated life and motherhood in a busy household. She openly discussed her infertility woes on the show and has since struggled with ongoing medical issues. But despite health challenges, she still manages to be a fun-loving mom and wife, frequently going on adventures with her family and documenting them for fans. Though she and her husband decided to take a break from filming “Outdaughtered,” Danielle keeps us in the loop with updates on Instagram and her family Youtube channel.

#9: Jeannie Mai
“10 Years Younger” (2004-09)


Before Jeannie Mai was the notable host and stylist she is today, she appeared on TLC’s makeover show “10 Years Younger”as a beauty squad member. She went on to serve as a co-host on the popular daytime talk show “The Real,” on which she discussed her divorce and scored an Emmy. With stardom achieved, she competed on “Dancing with the Stars,” but unfortunately withdrew due to an inflammatory condition. As for her status these days, she is married to rapper Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins and welcomed a daughter in early 2022. Mai remains super active on her Youtube channel sharing equally hilarious and adorable glimpses into her life as a famous mom, wife, and fashion expert.

#8: Mike & Aziza
“90 Day Fiancé ” (2014-)


After nine seasons and counting, plenty of couples from “90 Day Fiancé” have failed to last. But Mike and Aziza from season one beat the odds. The two had an extremely unconventional journey, as they met online and married once Aziza moved to the U.S. Concerns from family members, the rushed nature of the show, and intimacy issues had us questioning the likelihood of the pair’s longevity, but they are still very much together today. They welcomed their daughter Olivia in 2019 and proudly show her off on their respective Instagrams. The couple might have had an iffy start, but it seems that they are enjoying life as an adorable family of three.

#7: Matt & Amy Roloff
“Little People, Big World” (2006-)


Since 2006, Matt and Amy, along with their children, have shared their lives on the Roloff farm while educating the world about dwarfism. As chronicled on their show, the family has experienced ups and downs, with the parents splitting in 2015 and having disagreements over the farm’s future. Recently, tensions over selling land peaked when Matt listed property rather than giving it to his sons. But regardless of friction over the business, the family appears to be tight-knit and has welcomed new additions. Matt and Amy are proud grandparents, Matt is dating his long-time girlfriend Caryn, and Amy is happily remarried. Amy also has a cooking website on which she sells books and shares recipes.

#6: Theresa Caputo
“Long Island Medium” (2011-19)


She was a psychic medium then and still is now. Theresa Caputo hasn’t slowed down since the
final season of “Long Island Medium.” Following her 2018 divorce, Caputo has authored books and started “Hey Spirit,”a podcast where she conducts Q&A’s with listeners all over the world. She has also gone on live tours where she continues channeling spirits and helping people connect with their passed loved ones. Even more impressive than her unique career’s success is the fact that her appearance hasn’t changed much either. Sporting her famous hairdos and nails, Caputo is still easily recognizable. When she’s not giving readings or maintaining her look, she’s likely spending time with her tiny granddaughter.

#5: Kat Von D
“LA Ink” (2007-11)


Starring in TLC’s widely viewed “LA Ink,” Kat Von D was the no-nonsense tattoo shop owner and artist with an impressive set of skills. She followed up her hit reality series with many new ventures, proving she is an entrepreneur with artistic talents that span far beyond tattoos. She released a bestselling book, created a clothing line, carried out animal advocacy work, made guest appearances on songs, and headed a beauty brand that she sold in 2020. In 2021, she launched her own music career and made the decision to close her California shop High Voltage. She moved to Indiana with her family where she is now a vegan wife and mom to a beautiful little boy.

#4: Clinton Kelly
“What Not to Wear” (2003-13)


Kelly is easily recognizable thanks to his co-hosting of “What Not to Wear.” His funny and endearing persona later earned him gigs on “The Chew” and more recently “Spring Baking Championship.” Aside from his television career and a series of bestselling published works, Kelly spends much of his time with his husband Damon, who he lovingly showcases on social media. Professionally, he currently contributes to “Women’s Day” magazine as a columnist to share his expert style advice. We also can’t forget to mention Clinton’s fashionista co-host Stacy London, who is still an empowering businesswoman. She is the co-founder of “State of Menopause,” a company with a mission to help women feel their best.

#3: Buddy Valastro
“Cake Boss” (2009-20)


In 2009, Valastro quickly rose to fame as the face of Carlo’s Bake Shop in his hit baking show. While the series was still airing, he was infamously arrested for driving under the influence. Since taking responsibility and apologizing for his mistake, Buddy managed to score more opportunities as a brand ambassador for low-calorie sweeteners and a contestant on “Beat Bobby Flay.” But in 2020, a freak accident with a pinsetter severely injured the baker’s hand and required two surgeries to fix. Luckily, his skilled hand is better today and he has made a return to the bakery. Valastro’s Hoboken headquarters is still in business and doing quite well, in addition to the other shops he’s opened in other locations.

#2: Jon & Kate Gosselin
“Jon & Kate Plus 8” (2007-17)


Jon and Kate were the stars of TLC’s high-rated series, but things changed when a highly publicized and messy divorce put an end to the Gosselins’ show. The split saw the parents have a custody battle and separate their kids—two of which live with Jon and the remainder with Kate. After years of silence, Jon has recently been more vocal about his marriage to Kate and the tension that plagued their relationship. Kate hasn’t been as forthcoming about the past and instead came back to TV looking for love in “Kate Plus Date” in 2019. Today, Jon is a DJ releasing music, while Kate has ditched her “Karen” haircut and is working as a nurse.

#1: Mama June & Alana Thompson
“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” (2012-17)


Mama June and Alana, aka Honey Boo Boo, are arguably TLC’s most unforgettable stars. First appearing on “Toddlers & Tiaras,” the mother-daughter duo landed their own show and gave us a look into their crazy household. But things went from funny to concerning after multiple scandals, including Mama June’s substance abuse and 2019 arrest. Alana moved in with her older sister, Pumpkin, who she still lives with today. You can keep up with the fam by tuning into their newer show, “Mama June: Road to Redemption.” June’s relationship with Alana is a focal point, in addition to her sobriety and new husband. Meanwhile, Alana is no longer a pageant contestant. She seems to be enjoying life as a high school student with a boyfriend.
