12 Former Real Housewives We Wish Would Come Back
If you've been watching the Real Housewives from the beginning, chances are at least one of your favorite characters is no longer on the show. Like most other Housewives fans, we've watched the different seasons from the get-go and can't help but miss some of our favorites. From Danielle Staub's meltdowns to Jeana Keough's crazy family, how can you not wish these ladies would make their Housewives comebacks ASAP?
Dina Manzo Real Housewives
Dina Manzo was known for being the calm younger sister to Caroline on RHONJ, but only lasted on the show for two seasons. With her relationship with her family currently on the rocks, we definitely wouldn't mind seeing her make a return.
Cindy Barshop Real Housewives
Cindy Barshop didn't last long on RHONY—she was actually fired after just one season—but that's not to say we don't occasionally wonder what the single mom/laser hair removal extraordinaire is up to now.
Jo De La Rosa Real Housewives
Since being Sale Smiley's first fling on RHOC, we hadn't heard much about Jo De La Rose until she recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live. Jo now lives in New York and works in advertising. Surprising? Definitely.
Danielle Staub Real Housewives
Like Dina Manzo, Danielle Staub left RHONJ after season two. Even though she didn't stick around for very long, we'll always remember Danielle as the counterpart to Teresa's table-flipping tirade.
Lisa Wu-Hartwell Real Housewives
Lisa Wu-Hartwell's time on RHOA is kind of a blur, and that's probably because half of the stories she told were lies. We don't blame her for leaving the show because she was over the drama, but unfortunately running away from reality TV doesn't let you escape from actual reality.
Alex McCord Real Housewives
Alex McCord was a staple in the early seasons of RHONY, but apparently her passive aggressive nature wasn't dramatic enough for the show's execs.
Sheree Whitfield Real Housewives
Since leaving RHOA, Sheree Whitfield has been pretty busy suing bloggers and getting sued herself. Don't you think her life would make for a killer storyline?
Bethenny Frankel Real Housewives
Who doesn't know and love Bethenny Frankel? Although she's now known most for her talk show and SkinnyGirl line, Bethenny was once an outspoken housewife on RHONY who then got two spin-off shows.
Peggy Tanous Real Housewives
Peggy Tanous was in and out of Orange County during seasons 5-7, but even when she was not living her life in front of a camera she couldn't avoid the drama—she filed for bankruptcy about a month ago! Yikes!
Jeana Keough Real Housewives
Fans of Jeana Keough will be happy to know that since leaving RHOC, her once attitude-ridden children have grown up, calmed down, and gotten incredibly good looking.
Jill Zarin Real Housewives
Seasons five and six of RHONY just haven't been the same since Jill Zarin left the show, but without Bethenny Frankel there to fuel her fire, we couldn't blame Bravo for giving her the boot.
Lynne Curtin Real Housewives
Lynne Curtin joined the RHOC cast during season 4, and even though she was only on the show for two seasons she couldn't escape the wrath of Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson who accused her of smoking marijuana regularly.
