From parenthood to public feuds, this year’s been quite eventful for our favorite SUR servers. And, well, we can’t help but wonder who’ll actually be returning to our screens by the time the next season of Vanderpump Rules comes around. Unfortunately, we now know another cast member who won’t be…

On Friday, April 16, Dayna Kathan took the online world by storm as she dropped a bombshell on the rest of us: She won’t be returning for the 9th season of the Bravo reality series. That’s right, we’ll give you a second to take that one in. As for what the reality star had to say for herself?

"I'm not returning but excited to see next season!" she shadily replied to a fan's comment on her Instagram post. Are you as devastated as we are? We're sure Scheana is... In all seriousness, though, Dayna's shocking departure leaves us wondering: Who'll even be left by the time the next season hits our screens?

In case you forgot, Kathan’s exit marks cast members that have left the series since wrapping up season 8 last summer. And honestly, we've been struggling to keep up. It all started during the Bravo reunion last year when it was announced that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were all fired from the show due to controversial actions.

Since then? Jax Taylor and wife Brittany Cartwright, too, said goodbye to SUR as they announced their mysterious reality-tv exit. But while Lisa's gang might be dwindling by the day, don't worry: The show still goes on. "We’ve lost a couple of people along the way, unfortunately, but there’s still a lot of people that the audience know and love," Lisa Vanderpump hinted of an upcoming season.

Well, there you have it, folks. While we don't quite yet know when - or should we say, if - the gang will be headed back to our screens, we've got a feeling there's lots more tea to be spilled.

Until then, stay tuned.
