"The Real Housewives of Orange County" has aired on Bravo since 2006.
Out of the 26 housewives that have held oranges, eight have appeared in only one season.
Not much is known about Kimberly Bryant from season one, and season 16's Dr. Jen Armstrong has filed for divorce.
"The Real Housewives of Orange County" premiered on Bravo in the spring of 2006 and will air its seventeenth season on Wednesday.
It was the first city in the franchise and paved the way for other shows in Atlanta, New York, and New Jersey, to name a few.
Throughout the run of the show, 26 housewives have shared their lives in front of the camera, and eight of these women only lasted one season.
Here's what their lives look like now.
Kimberly Bryant appeared on the first season of "The Real Housewives of Orange County."
Kimberly Bryant appeared on the 2006 debut season of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" alongside costars Vicki Gunvalson, Jeane Keough, Joy De La Rosa, and Lauri Waring.
On the show, Bryant featured her husband Scott, daughter Bianca, and son Travis. On the show, the Bryant family was new to Orange County and adjusting to their new lives behind the Coto de Caza gates.
In the first episode, Bryant explains changes she made since moving, including breast implants she got at her husband's request.
Despite not returning as a full-time housewife after season one, Bryant made a few cameos throughout seasons two, three, and four.
Since exiting the show, Bryant has stayed private, and not much is known about her life today.
According to Distractify, it is believed that at some point, Bryant relocated to Illinois to focus on her son's health.
Per a 2023 report by The Sun, the Bryant family foreclosed on their Chicago home in 2014. According to court documents obtained by the outlet, Kimberly said Scott suffered a "100% loss of income" because of the job market.
Quinn Fry was a housewife on season three of "RHOC."
Quinn Fry opened up about her life in the show's third season, which aired in 2007. Despite being a full-time cast member, Fry was not introduced until the season's sixth episode.
Fry joined the show as a divorced single mom to two kids, Shannon and Colin. She had a history in marketing and worked as an editor for an O.C.-based website.
During the season, viewers watched Fry manage her family life and explore dating younger guys.
According to her Twitter bio, Fry spends her time in Orange County and Eureka, California.
On Instagram, Fry shares photos of her family and recently shared that her mother passed in May.
Peggy Tanous joined the cast in season six.
Peggy Tanous splashed onto the scene in 2011 for the show's sixth season.
Bravo's website describes Tanous as a "stay-at-home mom with poster girl good looks." Her family consisted of her businessman husband Micah and two girls, London and Capri.
Tanous got along with most of the women but butted heads with former friend Alexis Bellino as it was revealed she previously dated Bellino's husband, Jim. She also let the cameras capture her breast implant surgery.
According to a 2011 report by Entertainment Weekly, Tanous announced her departure from the show on Facebook and cited the "negative energy of certain cast members" as one of the contributing factors.
In 2013, Tanous raised eyebrows after she filed for bankruptcy and said she was divorced in the filings, per Radar Online.
Per her Instagram, Tanous is still married and living in Orange County. She also keeps in touch with some "RHOC" veterans like Gretchen Rossi, Lynne Curtin, and Lizzie Rovsek.
Lizzie Rovsek only held an orange in season nine.
In 2014, Lizzie Rovsek joined the "RHOC" season nine cast.
The former beauty queen and swimsuit designer showcased her business, husband, Christian, and sons, Kingston and Preston, on the show.
Tensions ran high between Rovsek and costar Tamra Judge throughout the season and reached a fever pitch during an argument in Bali. Their altercation prompted Judge to leave the trip early, and their fight continued at the reunion.
Rovsek would return to the show in season 10 in a "friend" role.
Since filming wrapped, Rovsek filed for divorce in 2017, and as of 2020, the divorce has not been finalized, per People.
Her social media posts show that Rovsek still lives in Orange County and frequently hangs out with "RHOC" alum Gretchen Rossi and current cast member Emily Simpson.
Peggy Sulahian was only a housewife for the season 12.
2017's season 12 added Peggy Sulahian to the line-up — the show's second Peggy.
While on the show, Sulahian showed off her lavish lifestyle, complete with a mansion down the street from costar Heather Dubrow, a fleet of luxury cars, diamond accessories, and a fashionable family.
Her husband, Diko, and their children, Giovanna, Gianelle, and Koko, were a big part of her storyline as she prepared to send her daughters off to college. Sulahian's health also took center stage as she recovered from a breast cancer operation during the season.
Throughout the season, Sulahian got into spats with Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Meghan King but remained close to castmates Vicki Gunvalson and Lydia McLaughlin.
According to her Instagram, Sulahian has remained close to her family and celebrated her daughter Giovanna's college graduation in May and Gianelle's wedding in October 2022.
Elizabeth Lyn Vargas was only a housewife for season 15.
Season 15, which aired during the pandemic, brought Elizabeth Lyn Vargas into the fold.
Viewers met Vargas, a music company CEO, amid a divorce and dealing with a strained relationship with her boyfriend, Jimmy. She was introduced into the group as a friend of castmates Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.
During her run on the show, her finances and circumstances surrounding her relationship with her ex-husband were questioned. Her friendship with Windham-Burke also deteriorated throughout the season.
At the reunion, Vargas opened up about childhood trauma and revealed she was bisexual.
According to Deadline, in 2022, Vargas was " held captive for hours in her own home" by her ex-boyfriend. He has since been sentenced to six years in prison.
Later that year, Vargas admitted on a podcast that after leaving "RHOC," she was "embarrassed to go out" and that "the drama that they brought out on the show was really devastating," per Us Weekly.
Vargas' Instagram bio says she's an "RHOC covid season 15 survivor" and often promotes her vodka line, Vargas Vodka.
Noella Bergener got an orange for season 16.
In 2022, "RHOC" premiered its sixteenth season with model Noella Bergener as a new housewife.
Bergener's introduction was smooth at first but became rocky three episodes in when she announced that her attorney husband, James, had left her, filed for divorce, and left the country.
The two share a son, James Jr., and Bergener has a daughter, Coco, from a prior marriage.
Bergener had her fair share of arguments with the other ladies despite a tumultuous personal life. Most notable was her feud with Heather Dubrow over an inappropriate card game she gifted to Dubrow's daughter and a spat with fellow newcomer Dr. Jen Armstrong over an Instagram picture she was tagged in.
Castmate feuds aside, the audience got a front-row seat into Berenger's chaotic personal life, which, excluding her divorce, included grappling with her father's death and managing her son's autism diagnosis.
At the reunion, she announced she was dating someone new, but they have since broken up, per a June 2022 report from Us Weekly.
It is unclear where her divorce stand today, but in March 2023 Radar Online reported the two were still working out child support payments.
As of late, Bergener has continued modeling and is the CEO of an adult toy line called Playland.
Dr. Jen Armstrong was also a housewife on season 16.
Last but not least, Dr. Jen Armstrong also joined the "RHOC" family in season 16.
Armstrong, an aesthetic physician, came onto the show with a successful cosmetic procedure practice — and a rocky relationship with her husband, Ryne Holliday. She is also a mother to twins Vera and Vince, and a son, Robert.
As the season unfolded, Armstrong got into a tiff with Noella Bergener over a social media miscommunication, and her marriage continued to break down.
Less than two months after the reunion aired in April 2022, Armstrong filed for divorce from Holliday, per Page Six.
In an October 2022 Us Weekly podcast, Armstrong talked about how the show affected her marriage.
"But I don't feel like the show caused anything, it magnifies what's already going on. It just puts you in a more intense situation. So no, I wouldn't blame the show for that," Armstrong said.
In the year since her departure, Armstrong appears to be doing well and frequently posts her patients and procedures on her Instagram page.
