Potomoc’s Robyn Dixon had a complex relationship with her retired NBA player ex, Juan – the two still lived together, and could not decide how to move forward in their relationship.

DeShawn Snow, we hardly knew you. After appearing on the first season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, DeShawn quietly slipped away from cast and stayed out of public life. In real life, the drama was even more intense than the show; her husband, former NBA Eric Snow, impreganted his mistress, leading to a nasty divorce.

Sheree Whitfield is back to being a full-time cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and two things seem to still be a constant in her life: home construction and her relationship with Bob Whitefield. After years of contention and lawsuits, last season Bob was trying to win over his ex… maybe he wants a room at Chateau Sheree?

Kathryn and Donnie Edwards
It looks like Kathryn Edwards is “one and done” with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – maybe Kyle was upset that her husband, retired football player Donnie, was threatening to overthrow Mauricio as the Hottest Real Husband?

Charrisse Jackson Jordon
Any seasoned Real Housewives watcher could spot the marriage trouble in Charrisse Jackson Jordan’s life (problem #1: her husband was literally never home). She said her husband’s career as a pro basketball coach kept him out of state, but when he didn’t show up at her blowout 50th birthday party, it was clear there was more to it. She waited until the end-of-reunion toast to announce their separation, shocking even the unflappable Andy Cohen.

When we first met RHOA’s Portia Williams, she was relishing in her sheltered trophy wife life with her NFL’er husband Kordell Stewart. It didn’t last long – Portia soon realized being a capital H Housewife was a lot more fun than being a housewife, and her marriage to Kordell quickly unravelled.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Lisa Wu Hartwell gave us one of the best reunion lines ever (“I am not the one!”) but left after two seasons to focus on her multiple businesses and home life family with NFL’er Ed Hartwell. Post-Housewives has been challenging for Lisa – she and Ed divorced, and her real estate and lifestyle businesses were shuttered. Today, Ed is embroiled in a nasty split with Keisha Knight Pulliam (aka Rudy from The Cosby Show).

Larsa and Scottie Pippen
Although The Real Housewives of Miami’s Larsa Pippen is married to one of the most famous and successful ballers of all time (Chicago Bull’s forward Scottie Pippen), he didn’t make an on-camera appearance and the two have been plagued by rumours of money woes. The chatter heated up this summer when she Tweeted that former NBA star Christian Laettner owned the couple money.

Kim and Kroy Biermann
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zoliak first met her husband Kroy at a charity dance competition – in typical Kim fashion, she become obsessed with his ass(ets). The two married and quickly had 4 children, bringing the family total to 6 kids, 2 adults, and a very large wig collection. This year he was traded from Atlanta to Buffalo and then cut, so Troy’s future in the NFL is unclear.
