With Season 8 of The Real Housewives of Orange County behind us and Season 9 totally up in the air — Lydia McLaughlin quit while Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi have reportedly been fired — we’re really starting to miss seeing Jeana Keough and her daughter, Kara, on the Bravo show.

The last time we really saw her was way back in Season 7, Episode 19, when the mother/daughter duo showed up at Heather Dubrow’s name-changing party, where they made amends with Tamra Barney. Just in case you don’t recall, during the Season 6 finale, Jeana and Tamra Barney got into an altercation, which resulted in Tamra throwing a drink in Jeana’s face. But what have Jeana and Kara been up to since then?

It turns out Kara’s all aglow thanks to romance and the Florida sunshine. She lives with her hubby-to-be, Dallas Cowboys football star Kyle Bosworth. The two met while at UCLA (where Kara received her BA in Interpersonal Communications Studies with cum laude honors). After a brief stint with the New York Giants, Kyle was signed to the Cowboys and has been rocking that stadium this season. According to LinkedIn, Kara still works as a marketing coordinator for Accounting Principals, Ajilon Professional Staffing & Parker + Lynch.

Kara got engaged back in to Kyle in October 2012, which Jeana proudly announced on Twitter. "My daughter just got engaged. Kyle Bosworth really surprised her!” Jeana tweeted. Since then, we’ve been treated to some adorable photos from her bridal shower!

It’s pretty clear that these ladies have been super busy since their last appearance on RHOC, but we can’t help but want them back!
