Jacqueline Laurita Quits? 15 Other Real Housewives Who Said Bye Bye & Why!

Jacqueline Laurita

Apparently no Real Housewife is safe. Cast members from Real Housewives from coast to coast have been fired, quit or just kind of disappeared into the ether. The newest rumored departure is Jacqueline Laurita from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The mom of three has apparently had enough of the high octane hi-jinx that ensues on the show. And really, her time would be better spent on working on her relationship with adult daughter Ashley and raising her two little boys rather than engaging in silly dramas with Teresa Giudice and the other housewives.

Jacqueline Laurita isn’t the first housewife to leave and she won’t be the last here are 15 other Housewives who said bye bye why did they leave and where are they now and did they leave for the sake of their families?

  • Bethenny Frankel 4 of 15

  • Danielle Staub 5 of 15
    Danielle Staub
    Danielle brought tons of drama to the Real Housewives of New Jersey. It was at a point that she either had to get off the show or all the other women would have quit. And she seems to have been in a downward spiral since she left the show.
  • Jeana Keough 6 of 15

  • Lauri Waring Peterson 7 of 15
    Lauri Waring Peterson

  • Quinn Fry 8 of 15
    Quinn Fry
    Real Housewives of Orange County divorcee Quinn Fry was far too sweet to be on the show.
  • Tammy Knickerbocker 9 of 15
    Tammy Knickerbocker
    Real Housewives of Orange County star Tammy Knickerbocker didn't bring much drama and pretty much stayed in the background. It made sense that she didn't last.

    Lynne Curtin
    The Real Housewives of Orange County mom of two teenagers was kicked off the show and said she was "broken hearted," when she got the news.
  • Lisa Wu-Hartwell 11 of 15

    Lisa Wu-Hartwell is one busy woman, but being on the Real Housewives of Atlanta won't be taking up her time anymore. Also Lisa and her husband have broken up.
  • Jennifer Gilbert 12 of 15

    Jennifer Gilbert only was on the Real Housewives of New York City for one season, but that was enough for her.
  • Cindy Barshop 13 of 15
    Cindy Barshop

  • DeShawn Snow 14 of 15
    DeShawn Snow
    DeShawn was far too sweet and nice for the show. She only lasted one season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
  • Dina Manzo 15 of 15
    Dina Manzo
    Dina had a very good reason for leaving the Real Housewives of New Jersey. She just couldn't take the drama (aka Danielle Staub) anymore. But now she has her own show on Home and Garden TV!
