Just because some of the cast of the Real Housewives franchises aren't filming right now doesn't mean they're not getting into trouble. Here's what's been going on off-camera.

No Dancing For These Divas
It looks like we won't be seeing Taylor Armstrong of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or any other Bravo Housewives on ABC's Dancing With The Stars any time soon.

"Taylor expressed an interest in appearing and she was rejected," an insider told RadarOnline. "Producers of Dancing With The Stars just don't think the ladies are big enough stars to appear on the show."

Ouch! That's a pretty big insult coming from a show that considered George Clooney's ex-girlfriend and Bristol Palin famous enough to appear on their show.

Courtroom Crasher
Former star of Real Housewives of D.C. and notorious White House crasher Tareq Salahi has run into some legal troubles of his own. Just two months after his attempted lawsuit filed against his ex-wife Michaele Salahi and her new boyfriend fell through, he is being sued for issuing fraud wine tours in Virginia. The lawsuit claims that Tareq sold wine tours online and refused to issue refunds when said tours never took place.

But surprisingly, Tareq is not letting these allegations keep him from running for the governor of Virginia. For real. He plans to "use his experience as a reality TV star and vineyard owner to change the way things are run in Virginia." Okay...

Teresa Troubles
On Sunday's premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey, we picked up the Giudice/Gorga feud right back up from where we left it. But Teresa had some insight to offer into her financial trouble on her Bravo blog.

"The economy was really tough two years ago, especially if you were in construction and owned buildings like Joe and I did," Teresa explained. "When our tenants couldn't pay their mortgage, we couldn't pay the building mortgage. We filed for bankruptcy, and the amount was huge because it included the full mortgage on several buildings. Of course, good news isn't reported as often as bad news, but here's our good news: the banks were able to sell our buildings, which was most of our debt, so we withdrew our bankruptcy petition and are working on paying off the rest of our debt ourselves."

Good news for Milania, who will undoubtedly benefit most from the Giudice's financial situation.

Croco-Kyle Tears
Even though she'll be getting a new RHOBH co-star, poor Kyle Richards is still upset that her BFF Camille Grammer won't be returning for another season.

"It is very weird to me," Kyle said. "We all started out together. We've been through so much together and we're all very bonded. Even if we have our moments and we want to strangle each other at times, it feels weird. I'm not a good person with change--I don't like change."

Geez, Kyle, it's not like Camille died -- I'm sure she'll have you over for plenty of Dinner Parties from Hell. Though unfortunately your ego will have to handle them being off-camera!
