Did you catch what happened when all of the ladies of the Real Housewives gathered in NYC this week for the Watch What Happens Live All-Stars event? In case you missed it, here's some of the juicy gossip that was revealed about our favorite Housewives.

Kim's Road to Recovery
Kim Richards of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills looked healthy and happy at the Watch What Happens Live special All-Stars show. The reality star who went to rehab last December for alcohol addiction told RadarOnline that she has received a lot of public support from her fans.

"You know, before, I used to have a really hard time admitting I was an alcoholic," she said. "But I'm not ashamed or embarrassed any more. It's made me a much stronger person and, hopefully, put me in a place where I can help other people."

She also assured fans that just because she was going to come back to RHOBH for season three doesn't mean she takes her recovery any less seriously.

"I'm not going to be sitting around with these girls sipping cocktails and just hanging out," she said. "I'm going to be very into AA and spending time with the people who have been supporting me."

Reality Ruin
Teresa Giudice, troublemaker from Real Housewives of New Jersey, is claiming that reality TV has ruined her family.

"My Housewives experience has completely changed," Teresa told RadarOnline. "Jacqueline and I had a wonderful relationship for 10 years. We were great friends, but not anymore. It's so sad. We actually went through a 'friends divorce,' which is so hard."

And that's not even to mention what's going on in her family.

"I haven't spoken to my brother since before Christmas," she said. "We haven't gone this long without talking in my whole life. I'd have to say that reality TV ruined our family, and it's a disgrace."

But reality TV ruining her life hasn't actually given her enough cause to walk away from it. She's currently starring on Celebrity Apprentice and a new season of RHONJ premieres this month.

Boo Got Checked
There are rumors circulating the Internet that Sheree Whitfield was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta just before the WWHL All-Stars event. Sheree was conspicuously absent from the upfront photos and the firing is said to be kept a secret until after the reunion airs. We'll have to keep an eye on this story.

Spin Them Off
This week Bravo announced that two of the Real Housewives cast members would be getting their own shows. The first is Kandi Burruss of Real Housewives of Atlanta who will air a whole season based on her special from earlier this year called the Kandi Factory. Like in the special, Kandi will work with amateurs to help them record and produce their own music.

The other lucky lady is Lisa Vanderpump of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While there were rumors about her having a show based on her life, the new show SUR will focus more on her restaurant of the same name in Hollywood. See a preview of their new spin-offs as well as other upcoming Bravo shows here:
