Real Housewives and gossip go together like pinot grigio and more pinot grigio. Here's what the 'wives have been up to lately.

The Ring Don't Mean a Thing
Just days after Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills announced they would be separating, Paul has already been spotted sans-wedding ring. But according to TMZ, any rumors about a vicious custody battle brewing are untrue and the two plan to amicably share joint custody.

"Dr. Nassif's sole focus is making sure both Adrienne and the kids are as happy as possible in this very difficult time," a source close to the couple told TMZ. "His goal is to ensure the best interest of the children. He is going to stay focused on them and his parents."

And if you're looking forward to seeing the drama of the breakup on RHOBH, don't count on it. Paul has made it clear that he has no intentions of being a "story line" next season.

A Woman Scorned
RHOBH star Brandi Glanville knows what it's like to be publicly cheated on after her husband Eddie Cibrian had an affair with country star LeAnn Rimes. And she had harsh words for Kristen Stewart, who was caught cheating on Robert Pattinson with a married man.

"I'm not happy with this Kristen Stewart BS. Too close to home. Same story, friends with the wife and kids and [have sex with] the husband when we think no one is looking," Brandi tweeted. "Home wreckers come in pairs. It takes two."

Now whether anyone really cares what Brandi has to say on the matter is still up for debate.

Talk Show Sheep
Caroline Manzo of The Real Housewives of New Jersey gave out advice for families on her radio segment "Caroline Rules" last season on the show, and now it seems like she might be bringing her guidance to TV. According to an insider at The Huffington Post, in light of Bethenny Frankel's success, there are talks of Caroline getting her own daytime talk show.

"There are a lot of sheep in the TV business," the insider said. "Once a formula is successful, everyone wants to copy it. Caroline's name has come up several times and although it's still in the very early stages, I wouldn't be at all surprised if she gets her own chat show."

Caroline tells The Huffington Post that she hasn't officially been contacted yet, but if she is, it is something she would love to do. What do you think? Considering Caroline is less than half as engaging as Bethenny, it seems a little unlikely.

TV Diva
The Real Housewives of Atlanta may be on a break for now, but there is no rest for star NeNe Leakes. She recently talked to The Insider about her new show debuting this fall, The New Normal.

"The New Normal is something that is not traditional," NeNe said. "It's gonna be lots of laughs. There may even be a tear. There will definitely be drama. It's going to be a great show."

She also talks about how the show is somewhat controversial in nature due to the fact that it is about a gay couple trying to have a baby through a surrogate.

"I do expect it to be controversial," she said. "Years ago, people weren't talking too kind to seeing gay couples together. Today, it's a little bit more accepted but there's still a group of people who still aren't accepting it, so it's definitely going to be something different."
