Yesterday we celebrated our favorite Real Housewives couples, but not all is warm and fuzzy in these ladies' land of luxury. Let's get to the dirt on the latest Housewives gossip:

Did Ya Hear?
It may not come as a surprise to many Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans that an inside source is telling RadarOnline that Dana Wilkey will not be returning for another season. Billed as a "friend of the housewives," Dana provided little to the show, besides many chances for her fellow castmates to mock her name-dropping and price-tag-flashing. ("Did ya hear? Twenty-five thousand!")

Dana has recently been trying to stir up controversy by picking twitter fights with Brandi Glanville, but the source tells Radar that the drama is too little too late, and it would be very surprising if she was asked back by Bravo. So sad, Dana. We'll miss you next season. Not really.

Messy Marlo
Marlo Hampton of the The Real Housewives of Atlanta has taken to the blog on her website to issue a lengthy apology for using a gay slur in a cat fight with co-star Sheree Whitfield during their Africa trip.

"I would like to offer from the bottom of my heart the fullest and most heartfelt apology for my recent use of an anti-gay slur," Marlo wrote. "When I used this word, I was not mindful of the demeaning connotation that this has in the gay community. My speech was irresponsible, thoughtless and said with the intention of conveying anger rather than as a statement on my feelings toward the gay community as a whole."

That's all well and good, Marlo. But how about an apology for your "mocking-girly-voice" that we helpless viewers had to endure?

Make Me an Apprentice
Donald Trump has nothing but good things to say about this season's Celebrity Apprentice contestant and Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice. "Teresa is on there and is great, as you know. She was a real piece of work and is terrific on the show," he said.

He also told Digital Spy that almost all of the stars of the Real Housewives have asked to be on his show. "Virtually everyone wants to be on the show. We turn down many, many people for every one we take."

Vicki Gunvalson of Real Housewives of Orange County and Ramona Singer of Real Housewives of New York City have both vocalized their desire to sit in Trump's boardroom. And we're not going to lie, it would be fun to see both of them get fired.

Lisa's Woes
Lisa Vanderpump of RHOBH still seems to be a little shaken after that three part reunion.

"I have a few regrets this season, but I have been more deeply disappointed when watching the footage of some of the negativity," Lisa wrote on her Bravo blog. "I would never allow, out of allegiance to my friend, somebody to repeatedly trash a friend of mine who was totally unaware of the situation until it had been aired. That is something I just can't fathom."

Looks like Kyle Richards might need to find a new BFF. Lady Vanderpump has been wronged!

Bravo's Dating Service
As a part of the Valentine's Day special, Andy Cohen and Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger set up Bravolebrites Brandi Glanville of RHOBH and Top Chef contestant Angelo Sosa. Watch what happens ... here:
