Bravo’s popular reality series known as the Real Housewives has become an extremely successful franchise and now spans multiple cities with new shows popping up all the time. The premise of the show is drama, drama and more drama, but sometimes the women who are cast don’t live up to the high expectations or just can’t seem to mesh with the other housewives, making the show fall flat. When housewives are deemed “too boring” or their social lives don’t fit in with the storyline of that particular season producers have no problem booting them from the show! There are many women who have been a staple character for the series and their presence has been seen over several seasons, some have even been around since season one! However there are many that come and go for a fleeting moment of fame. Here’s a list of six housewives who were booted from the show:
6. Carlton Gebbia
We all remember Carlton Gebbia as the Wiccan housewife who had a particular taste for the Gothic culture. She definitely stood out among the other Beverly Hills barbies on the show! Carlton was featured for only one season of RHOBH and was not asked to return for season 5. The rumor was that she just didn’t resonate with fans of the show and didn’t come off as a particularly “likable” character. Unlike some women who get fired from the series, Carlton didn’t seem all that displeased in the media. She told E! News that getting her pink slip was bittersweet and that we hadn’t seen the last of her. “I sort of look at it as a blessing in disguise because my husband does have a project in the works, a reality show. It’s something that would give me the opportunity to work with him. I was contractually obligated for a three-year deal and if that’s the case, I’m not anymore.” Despite her claims of a show in the works we have yet to see Carlton back on-screen! She said she has no hard feelings against Bravo and enjoyed the experience, but won’t miss the “knives coming at my back.” Ouch!
