We meet another real housewife this week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and needless to say, Dana Wilkey makes a strong impression.

THG breaks down all the action in its +/- recap!

Dana hit the scene showing off all of her assets. Those include serious cleavage, a tiara, and $25,000 sunglasses. The funny part? She can't stop telling people she spent $25,000 on her sunglasses. What is she compensating for?

Dana Wilkey, Sunglasses

Does Dana Wilkey want to prove to everyone that she has money? Doesn't she realize that for as many people as she is impressing, just as many are looking down their noses for talking about money or simply laughing at her for being ridiculous enough to spend that kind of money on a pair of sunglasses. Minus 10.

It gets even more fun when Dana tells Kyle and Taylor all about her super baby. Apparently her 18-month-old reads, counts, models, and speaks Thai. Plus 8 to Kyle for both playing along and poking fun at Dana's inane assertions. I get the feeling that Dana is the insecure type.

In other housewife news, Lisa gets a gig with CNN as a commentator on the Royal Wedding. Plus 5 for Taylor who lists Lisa's qualifications for the job: She's married and British. Yup. That's about it.  It's nice to see Taylor finding her sense of humor for a change. There's only so much crying I can take.

One can't help but wonder why, in an age where the soap opera is clearly a declining genre (witness the cancellation of All My Children last month), E! has come out with new reality show offering a provocative glimpse into young soap stars' lives.

On the flip side, it's a nice respite from Kardashian shows. Thank you, E!

Besides, we have to give the network props for incorporating THG into last week's Dirty Soap premiere. So, let's break down what happened last night ...

Dirty Soap Cast

Episode two of Dirty Soap (Get it? Soap makes you clean, not dirty!) provided some more insight into the goings on of daytime drama stars you may or may not have heard of.

Once again, the troubled Kirsten Storms of General Hospital fame was a focal point. Last week, we saw her grapple with the demise of her friendship with Farah Fath.

This week, her immediate family, not her soap family, too center stage.

Storms' family situation is certainly less than ideal, as she apparently only talks to her brother. With him leaving for Army flight school, she feels even more isolated.

Fortunately, she has her co-stars to lean on as a support system.

Veteran Kelly Monaco is thinking about dating again, which is great news for red-blooded American males, while Galen Gering channeled his inner Mr. Mom.

If last week's Sister Wives season premiere taught us anything, it's that life in a polygamist household entails a different spin on some of life's rites of passage.

Case in point from last night's episode: "The Talk."

As in the talk about s-e-x. How does a man with four wives and 17 kids (or something, we lost count) broach this topic? What values does Kody Brown instill?

Sister Wives Picture

In the living room of one of the family's new Nevada homes, the Brown Bomber took charge, telling the kids he doesn't want them to date in high school.

That did not exactly go over well.

"You should not be sexual until you've graduated high school ever," he said, adding that he'd "prefer" they wait until marriage to become sexually active.

"I don't really want to talk about my daughters marrying ... or dating," Brown says later. Understandable, given that he's married four people's daughters.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey continued their Punta Cana vacation this week and THG breaks down their ridiculous adventure in our +/- recap!

Teresa does yet another wardrobe change donning a gold cut out bathing suit resembling a superhero. This entire trip is Teresa's own private fashion show and that might be mildly entertaining if Teresa and Kathy could shut up about their fight. Minus 8 because I'm just as tired of hearing about it as Caroline.

Teresa Giudice Cleavage

Despite that the rest of the crew seem to be getting along quite well. Plus 7. The two Joes try to decide which of them is shorter. When their height appears about even they attempt to up the stakes by whipping it out and seeing who is really the bigger man. Everyone gushes that it's just like the good ole days. Plus 10 for the drunken group hug.

Why can't Joe Gorga keep his pants on?  First he's flashing the Manzo boys when they show up to go golfing. Then he's mooning them on the golf course. Plus 5 for the technology that allows the show to block out the graphic details. No one needs to see that.

Plus 10 to Albert. He's the only real golfer in the bunch and he'll take it as a personal favor if none of these idiots ever sets foot on a golf course again.

Teresa decides her next project will be an Italian / Latin fusion cookbook and she drags the ladies along to a local market. They're all shocked to find that they have to see actual animals at the market, not just pieces of meet under plastic wrap. Minus 3.

Of course the cow heads weren't nearly as disturbing as the fact that Teresa didn't know the difference between semolina and salmonella. Minus 8. I don't think I want Teresa Giudice cooking my food.

Who wants to date Tareq Salahi. [Crickets] Hello? Anyone?

Well, if you change your mind, he's trying to pitch a reality show where you can do just that! Sources close to the jaded husband of Michaele Salahi say that Tareq he is pitching a dating show to various networks, with the title ... wait for it ...

Seducing Salahi.

Tareq and Michaele

In case you missed it, Michaele Salahi ran off with Neal Schon, the guitarist from Journey, because he's her soulmate and her husband was too controlling.

Tareq says he chose the house over boobs.

The proposed show would be filmed at his Virginia winery and would be of The Bachelor / Flavor of Love variety, with 14 women competing for Tareq's affection.

Several networks are reportedly interested, which is probably the saddest thing we've ever heard, but you know if it comes to fruition we'll be all over it.

Unlike most supposedly Real Housewives, Kandi Burruss possesses an actual talent - and she'll soon put it to use on her own reality program.

Bravo has given the greenlight to The Kandi Factory, which will follow around this Grammy winner as she mentors a pair of pop-singing hopefuls.

“With her breakout personality and straightforward attitude, Bravo fans have grown to love Kandi on The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Bravo’s VP of Development Eli Lehrer says. “The Kandi Factory will capture a unique look at her successful music career as Kandi transforms two music hopefuls into the next big pop star.”

Burruss - who won the aforementioned Grammy for TLC's "No Scrubs" - returns as part of fourth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta on November 6. Check out the new promo for what's ahead on that series NOW.

If you thought last week's display of Snooki's kooka would turn the men of Jersey Shore away forever, you thought wrong. Apparently it did the opposite.

Seriously, what is it about this girl? After her antics caused a rift with Jionni (at least temporarily), TWO of the roommates immediately make their move?

Baffling. As is the concept of Deena raising a child. When she missed her period, let's just say all of humanity was hoping for a false alarm. Did we get it?

As always, we break down all of the top Jersey Shore quotes and moments for you as we analyze Thursday's gripping installment, THG +/- recap style!

Getting. It. In.

Snooki dances away the pain alone at the bar. Fortunately, no straight vagine. Plus 7.

Forced to pretend she has a job, Deena cleans the bathrooms at work. Pretty gross, we have to say. The bathrooms look respectable, however. Plus 4.

JWoww apologizes to Snooki for blowing her off, but soon enough, warns Snooki to not act like Sammi over Jionni. Sage advice from our girl J. Plus 5.

Plus 12 for Sam telling JWoww that she'd prefer to be mocked as "the old Sam" because Sam 2.0 is so much better at relationships. Self-deprecating!

Ronnie and Sammi actually do seem stable lately. Relatively. Plus 5.

TLC continually changes the name of its show 19 Kids and Counting to reflect the increasing number of Duggar offspring. Jim Bob and Michelle? Fertile.

But it reportedly nearly declined by one.

The youngest child of the 21-member Arkansas family has reportedly suffered some serious medical problems while shooting overseas in Israel.

Little Josie-Brooklyn Duggar was born prematurely and is prone to illness, but sources say the demands of their TLC schedule put her more at risk:

The Duggars

“Josie has had serious breathing issues since her premature birth. While the Duggars are a loving family who adore their children, they are defi­nitely risking little Josie’s life by traveling all over the world," says an insider.

"It seems like they are putting the show before their child’s health. Jim Bob and Michelle need to put their chil­dren before media attention and money.”

Definitely out of character for the evangelical Christian family, who - no matter what you think of their lifestyle - live debt free and relatively simply.

Although, as Jon Gosselin can attest, money and fame change people.

Should Jim Bob and Michelle try for baby Duggar #20?

André Leon Talley is out. Kelly Cutrone will soon be in.

There's been a judging shake-up on America's Next Top Model, all sides confirm, as the fashion publicist who appeared on The Hills will join the panel for cycle 18 next year.

"I am a huge fan of America's Next Top Model and have watched the show for years," says Cutrone, who owns People's Revolution. "Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show."

Really, Kelly Bensimon is not upset about getting the boot from The Real Housewives of New York City. She's just getting started, after all!

But if any reality TV show producers out there are reading this and they wanna make Kelly an offer, what the heck, she'll listen.

Bensimon, Kelly

"I get approached all the time about doing different shows and everyone always has a different angle," Bensimon claims to E! News. "But this is the time for a bigger and better deal... Whoever gives me the greatest deal that is synonymous with my brand, that's something I want to do."

Bensimon, of course, was let go by Bravo this month, along with Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop. They will allegedly be replaced by Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher.

How will Kelly possibly cope with the loss of this six-figure paycheck? She pauses, takes a deep breath a says: "Tomorrow is a new day."
