The day the Real Housewives gossip ends is the day the world stops turning! What have these ladies been up to lately you ask? Well look no further!

One Step Ahead

On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, viewers got a little insight into Aviva's charity work with kids who wear prosthetic limbs. If seeing little Jake getting his running legs didn't help put the Ramona/Heather drama-rama into perspective, I don't know what would.

"Not many of us get a second chance. I did," Aviva wrote on her Bravo blog. "I find my obligation now is, at the very least, to impart to other amputees the ease with which I find wearing a prosthesis."

To learn more about Aviva's cause, read her blog this week or visit the One Step Ahead website.

Brandi's Beau

It looks like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is finally taking some time away from feuding with her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his new wife LeAnn Rimes on Twitter and actually going on some real dates.

According to The Daily Mail she's been seeing real estate Jonathan Ruiz. And since of course, Brandi has a flair for the dramatic, Ruiz has another connection to RHOBH: he works for co-star Kyle Richards' husband Mauricio Umansky. This might make Kyle Angry Spice.

Back to School

Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is broadening her horizons, especially when it comes to her new business of sex toy line Bedroom Kandi. This entrepreneur is taking her new venture quite seriously and is going back to school to learn more about the field.

"This week I've [been] taking steps to better myself," Kandi tweeted. "I'm officially a student studying sex education and clinical sexology! Education is everything."

That Kandi, she doesn't half donkey-booty ass anything!

Housewife Hiatus

RHOBH star Adrienne Maloof may not be returning for another season after season 3 airs due to the complications in her marriage as well as drama between the ladies, say sources at Radar Online.

"Adrienne's friends have been telling her that she MUST quit the show, if she has any hopes of reconciling with her husband," a source said. "The stress Adrienne endured on the show certainly took a toll on her marriage. Reality shows are bad for marriages."

This may be the earliest departure rumor yet, considering season 3 has yet to air. So let the casting rumors begin?
