Welcome to 50 Days of Addison Rae, a Just PMSing original blog series where we explore all things Addison Rae, TikToker, dancer, YouTuber, Kardashian friend.
There is a 100 percent chance you’ve seen Addison Rae shaking her ass on TikTok in the last eight months. You’ve probably thought, “What’s the big deal? I can shake my ass, too.” But can you shake your ass and have the perfect pouty face to accompany it? Can you lip-synch to a raunchy rap song while doing it? Can you come across completely innocent and yet incredibly naughty at the same time? Can you? Can you? Didn’t think so. Addison Rae can do it all. She’s the 20-year-old who went from a LA girl to a LA woman (Louisiana to Los Angeles) in the matter of months and now has more money and fame than she knows what to do with. Let me introduce you.
Addison Rae Easterling was born October 2000, making her 20 years old. She was born in Louisiana and has been a competitive dancer since she was 6 years old. She joined TikTok in 2019, where she started uploading dance videos and now she has more than 61 million followers, making her the second-most followed person on the app. She is part of The Hype House, a collab house in Los Angeles that houses other young creators. Addison Rae has never physically lived in the house, but she is part of the group.
Before moving to LA, Addison Rae attended Louisiana State University, where she studied sports broadcasting. After amassing massive followers on TikTok, she “resigned” from school, something she jokes about in a video with YouTuber James Charles.
Addison Rae has taken her TikTok fame and transitioned it to a YouTube channel, brand sponsorships, a podcast, a makeup line, and even a role in an upcoming movie, a remake of She’s All That. Addison Rae’s mom, Sheri, has her own TikTok account, and often appears in Addison Rae’s videos. Addison Rae lives with her parents and two younger brothers in Los Angeles.
Addison Rae is dating fellow TikToker Bryce Hall. There were rumors about the two when The Hype House first launched, but they broke up and are now back together. They made it Instagram official and were recently seen kissing behind Saddle Ranch. When Bryce was arrested for drug charges earlier this year, it is rumored that Addison Rae bailed him out.
The only person with more TikTok followers than Addison Rae is Charli D’Amelio, who has nearly 100 million followers. Like Addison Rae, Charli is a competitive dancer and went viral for her dance videos. However, according to me, the person writing this blog, Addison Rae is clearly the bigger star and the one more equipped for fame. Charli is shy and timid and Addison Rae is outgoing, bubbly, and eager to meet fans and shake her ass anywhere and everywhere. To me, Addison Rae is Kim Kardashian meets Jessica Simpson. Hungry for fame, yet down-to-earth and goofy with a big, bright smile.
I asked my Instagram what y’all wanted to know about Addison Rae. Let me answer them for you.
Why doesn’t she wear pants?
Because she’s got a great ass.
Why is she famous?
She is a dancer on TikTok and people seem to have responded positively to her videos.
Who is this?
Who is her dentist?
Not sure. But on Twitter, she wrote that right before she dropped out of LSU, she switched her major to later become a dentist.
Was her relationship with Kourtney Kardashian a publicity stunt?
Addison Rae and Kourtney Kardashian are friends and eat and shop and vacation and film together. They first met when Addison Rae was in some of Mason Disick’s TikToks. Insider has a great timeline of their friendship. There was a rumor that Kourtney and Addison Rae’s friendship was just to equip Addison Rae to become the next big reality star, however, we may never know for sure. Addison Rae’s family has launched its own reality TV-like YouTube channel and the Kardashians recently ended their contract with E! Addison Rae and Kourtney’s friendship is odd, considering Kourtney is old enough to be Addison Rae’s mother, but they seem to get along great. Here is a video of them eating Kourtney’s avocado soup.

There was a rumor she was Republican, but she dismissed that.
What’s her dance career?
She grew up as a competitive dancer. She’s good.
Is she actually talented?
Who is her birth father?
Her birth father is Monty Lopez, the man married to her mother. In a YouTube video, Addison Rae explained that when her parents had her, they weren’t married, so her mom, Sheri Easterling, gave Addison Rae her last name. Sheri and Monty got married when Addison Rae was 2 and then they had two sons, whose last name is Lopez. Sheri still doesn’t use the last name Lopez.
Was she an influencer before she went viral?
No, she was just a college student on TikTok.
Which TikTok was the first to go viral that got her famous?
It’s this one of her lip-synching to a Kelsea Ballerini song.
Did she vote for Donald Trump?
No real way to know. Fans thought they saw a Trump hoodie on her floor, but it turned out to be an Old Navy towel.
