Stealing the Show

What do you do if your secondary characters are developing so nicely that they are stealing the show from the MC's?!
I'm right in the middle of my WIP (49,000 words) and I needed sub plots to keep my story going. That's all fine and good, but my characters from my subplots are taking over. I love how they have so many flaws, because I tried to make them not as likeable as the MCs. But their flaws have made them more interesting and given them more room to grow, and they are turning into better people and learning from their mistakes! Imagine that?
So, has this happened to you in your books? How can I make my MC take the stage back again?
