9. Lisa Wu and Ed Hartwell

Lisa Wu joined The Real Housewives of Atlanta in season 1 and stuck around for two seasons. While she was on the show, Wu led viewers to believe that she had a perfect marriage to former NFL player, Ed Hartwell. He was drafted to the Baltimore Ravens, and once played for the Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders and Las Vegas Locomotives. The couple got married in 2005 and had one son together, but not long after she left the show for good, Ed filed for divorce in 2011.

8. Jeana Keough and Matt Keough

No one was surprised when Jeana Keough, former cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County, announced she was getting a divorce from husband, former MLB player, Matt Keough. The couple share three children together, Shane, Kara, and Colton. Matt’s career was extensive. He pitched for the Oakland Athletics, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros, but his playing career ended in 1992 after he was hit in the head by a foul ball. During her first two seasons on the show, Matt was caught on camera being extremely aggressive and demeaning toward his wife. They had a very volatile relationship. Thankfully, she announced their separation at the season 2 reunion, but then allowed him to continue to live in their home. It actually took them years to finalize their divorce.
