6 'Real Housewives' Who Need To Come Back To The Franchise Because The Shows Aren't The Same Without Them

Reality stars may come and go, but Real Housewives are forever, mostly. Now in the middle of Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10, the Real Housewives franchise is the reality series that seemingly never ends, and it probably won't anytime soon because with each coming season, the Real Housewives blesses us with new cast members, new spray tans, and new drama. Reality TV might cause brain rot despite being part of the American cultural fabric, or it may even be good for you, but either way, the Real Housewives are a gift and if watching them is wrong, I don't want to be right.

As someone with a slightly more than average, bordering on unhealthy emotional investment in the Real Housewives of every city ever and ability to track their comings and goings from the series, I appreciate that every season is like a snowflake. No two are alike, and no two housewives are alike, each bringing their own special tagline (Wine Mom Ramona Singer's "Get the pinot ready" is a personal favorite) and varying degrees of hair height to the franchise.

That being said, it's my personal opinion that some Housewives are more memorable and have left a greater mark on the franchise than others. Let us never forget the joy they once brought us, and hopefully, through some unexpected midseason twist, they might realize they need to return to the show. Here are the Housewives who need to return:

Teresa Giudice

Because it's not The Real Housewives until someone flips a table.

Gretchen Rossi

Gretchen was always a shining light in the sea of jet skis, charity fundraisers, and hair extensions that is The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Dina Manzo

Since she left, RHONJ just hasn't been the same. Less threatening, sure, but not the same.

Caroline Manzo

Where one Manzo goes, another soon follows, and if Dina Manzo ever returned, the queen of RHONJ should reclaim her rightful place as Supreme Ruler of New Jersey.

Kim Zolciak

Kim Zolciak not only needs to come back to the RHOA, she also needs to do everyone a favor and bless the world with a new single to follow her classic "Tardy For The Party."

Danielle Staub

Come back to us, you terrifying, beautiful creature, you.

Seriously, can they all just return to the franchise already? It's about time.
