From our old favorite Housewives to the new girls, we love them all! Here's what a few of the ladies have been up to lately:

Talk Show NeNe

NeNe Leakes from The Real Housewives of Atlanta is looking to expand her repertoire to talk show host. Now that Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are leaving The View, she thinks she should be considered for on of their positions. 

"I would love to do a talk show one day. That's definitely on my bucket list," NeNe told Entertainment Tonight. "I already work with five or six women so I know how that can be. Working on The View is probably like working on the Housewives. I would love to get in there and chop it up with those girls."

This wouldn't be the first time a reality TV star joined the cast. Elisabeth Hasselbeck was famously a contestant on Survivor: The Australian Outback before joining The View. But there are rumors that Rosie O'Donnell's contract specifically bans other reality stars from joining her on the show.

"Everybody has their ideas about reality stars," NeNe said. "But the good thing about this, Rosie, is that NeNe Leakes is not just a reality star. I am a mogul, I am an actress, I am a producer, I am a clothing designer."

For once, I might have to agree with NeNe. This seems like a job she's perfectly well suited for.

Marriage Counseling

Kristen Taekman had a rough first season on The Real Housewives of New York City where her marriage problems were on display. But in the most recent issue of OK! magazine, Kristen gives an honest account about how watching their interactions on TV has changed her marriage to Josh.

"The show was wonderful therapy," she said in an open letter to the magazine. "Our marriage is more balanced than viewers might think. Josh gets up early with the kids every morning, and we switch off when we have work obligations ... It's teamwork."

And now that the show is done filming, Kristen admits that things are better than ever.

"Marriage is really hard," she said. "We are a lot stronger than a reality show. Team Taekman all the way! With 12 years, two kids and one season of reality TV under our belts, we are in it for the long haul."

Good for you, Kristen. But we still think he's a jerk.
