Bravo fans have no tears left to cry.

In 2018, the Real Housewives franchise saw the exit of a lot of stars from some of the biggest cities, including The Real Housewives of New York City and The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In fact, RHOA watchers said goodbye to two of the show's biggest stars, as well as its most controversial "friend" of the women, while The Real Housewives of Orange County saw three of its ladies drop their oranges after season 12.

But possibly the biggest Real Housewives shocker was learning one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' original stars, Lisa Vanderpump, may be leaving the show after its upcoming season. 9021-Oh no!

Fortunately, some cities seem to have found some stability within their casts, as The Real Housewives of Dallas, The Real Housewives of Potomac, and The Real Housewives of New Jersey haven't experienced any major shake-up this year. Yet.

Here's a rundown of all of the Housewives who decided to leave the franchise in 2018 for various reasons, including salary disputes and feuds so bitter that even Andy Cohen couldn't mediate the situation...
