Just as most reality shows, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” has said goodbye to several members of its cast over the years to introduce some new ones and keep things fresh.

Even though most of the former “RHOA” stars have active lives on social media, not everybody knows what they are up to at the moment, so here’s what happened to some of them after leaving the show.

She was one of the main characters in the show’s first two seasons and, even though she made cameos in the ninth and tenth ones, her relevance in “RHOA” decreased. After leaving the series, she got divorced from her husband of five years, Ed Hartwell.

Claudia appeared in the seventh season of the show and has not returned as a series regular ever since. She revealed that "RHOA" wanted her back for “a friend contract,” but she considered she deserved a “full-on peach,” so she refused.

After that, she went back to California and starred on the reality show “The Next: 15.” Apart from that, she has worked on radio and taken roles in a couple of TV films, including “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.”

While most of the former members of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” have chosen a calmer life away from the cameras, most of her fans would love to see them together again to remember all the things they made them feel throughout the past seasons.
