It's been nine long years of tussles, tears and table flipping on Bravo, thanks to the massive success of the "Real Housewives" franchise.

After kicking off in 2006 with "The Real Housewives of Orange County," spin-offs in New York, Atlanta, New Jersey, D.C., Beverly Hills and Miami quickly followed.

While not all of the series caught on -- Miami only lasted 2 seasons, D.C. just got 1 -- people like Bethenny Frankel, Lisa Vanderpump and Nene Leakes would become household names.

Much like some of its stars, the cast lineup would get facelifts every year, with new people ushered in and others phased out.

After leaving the "New Jersey" cast after two seasons, Danielle Staub popped back up in the news this month after getting engaged to a Navy SEAL.

The woman described by Teresa Giudice as a "prostitution whore" got us thinking about some of the other stars who left the franchise behind -- and we were shocked to see just how many women have come and gone since 2006.

Remember Slade Smiley's former fiance Jo De La Rosa? Or the woman he moved on with, Gretchen Rossi

What about Atlanta stars Lisa Wu or Sheree Whitfield of She by Sheree fame?

Click through the gallery above to see what they've all been up to since leaving their shows ... and what they look like now.

Lawsuits, sex tapes, divorce, grandkids, engagements and more, it's a real mixed bag!
