Our little housewives are growing up! Here's a look at what some of the Real Housewives have been doing to keep busy outside filming their shows.

The Next Celebrity Apprentice?
Last month, Teresa Giudice was announced as part of the cast on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice, premiering February 19 on NBC. Now she's calling the experience of working for Donald a "breath of fresh air" compared to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the show that made her famous.

"I have to say going into the boardroom was pretty stressful. People turn on you in the matter of a second," Teresa tells the AP. Still, she enjoyed her time with Trump, saying, "Even though I was working 20 hours a day, I didn't mind that."

As for the next season of RHONJ, Teresa says it's "very sad" and an "eye-opener." But "you're going to have to watch season four and tune in. This one, I have to say, tops the cake."

Rumor has it that Teresa was not only one of the most liked of among the cast members, but also one of the Donald's faves. Get it, Jersey girl!

Gimmie More Glee
NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta made her debut on Glee earlier this month, and now Glee creator Ryan Murphy has announced that she will return for more episodes. He also said on Watch What Happens Live that the cast and crew were very impressed with NeNe's performance and that she even received a round of applause after nailing her first take with Jane Lynch.

NeNe tweeted, "Nite Nite tweetie pies! I gotta be on the set of Glee early to shoot another episode."

NeNe's hasn't exactly kept it a secret that she think she is growing "too big" for RHOA. Maybe an acting career is in her future?

Hiding From Reality
At first Taylor Armstrong's fellow castmates were even skeptical about the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of her now late husband Russell Armstrong. Now The Daily Beast has taken an in-depth look at Taylor's accusations against Russell, interviewing his family members and friends who say they don't add up.

They're Back
Bravo announced yesterday that Real Housewives of Miami would be returning for a second season. Now the list of returning cast members is out: Marysol Patton, Lea Black and Audriana de Moura. So there are openings for at least two new housewives. Let the casting rumors commence.
