When we check back in with the Housewives, Kim's daughter Kimberly is getting ready to head to prom. Kim's storyline has been put on the backburner, so far, but this was pretty cute.  Kimberly's boyfriend picks her up and it's all adorable and perfectly awkward with Kim talking about chicken salad and trying to get them to have a cup of lemonade or some other such nonsense. We also get to spend a little more time with Kyle's teenage daughter, Alexa, who is in the process of learning how to drive.

THE young woman behind the counter at the auto-repair shop was insistent. "I need two telephone numbers," she said.I pointed to the number printed on the check. "That's a day and an evening number," I explained. "I don't have a second number."She nodded knowingly, picked up a red pen and printed the word "HOUSEWIFE" on the face of the check.Housewife! I spent the rest of the day moping about the fact that the dreaded H-word had been applied to me.When I was a teen-ager, I could never quite decide what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I knew what I didn't want to be -- a housewife.

UTICA, N.Y. -- Anita Maxwell laughs when she recalls an encounter with an elder of the Italian-American community here who seemed puzzled by her political career. "He said, 'You look like a plump Italian housewife,' " she says, "and so I am."But no one would call Anita Maxwell your average housewife. At 61, she has 11 children and 21 grandchildren and she is running for a seat in the New York Senate as a decidedly progressive Democrat and strong supporter of abortion rights."They just didn't believe it because I'm Italian and I have 11 kids," she says.

Take away the glamour, the TV cameras and the tabloid headlines, and Michaele Salahi's latest drama could almost be an Anne Tyler plot: Disaffected housewife risks it all to walk away from a stale marriage and into an entirely new life. But, hey - without the glamour, cameras and tabloids, Michaele would hardly be Michaele. When the one-time White House party crasher and reality TV star walked away from her husband last year, he whipped the celebrity media into a frenzy by claiming she was kidnapped, only to realize soon after that she was perfectly fine - purring most contentedly in the very open arms of rock star Neal Schon of Journey.

HOLLYWOOD - The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences gave Kate Winslet half her wish, nominating her for best actress for her indelible performance as a one-time concentration-camp guard in The Reader, but skipping over her other acclaimed performance, as a suffering suburban housewife in Revolutionary Road, a film directed by her husband, Sam Mendes. Winslet apparently had hoped to avoid having her two performances go mano a mano by expressing her wish (via the studios' campaigns)

The Everyman Theatre is bringing an updated version of the classic Henrik Ibsen play Hedda Gabler to Baltimore next week. Written in 1890, Ibsen questioned the role of women in Victorian society through his protagonist Hedda, an affluent woman trapped in a marriage to a struggling scholar. The adaptation, written by acclaimed up-and-comer Jon Robin Baitz, stays true to Ibsen's work but cuts down on much of the original text and replaces it with a more modern vocabulary. "This is a new approach for Hedda -- it's sexy and dangerous and fun," said Deborah Hazlett, a member of the resident acting company at Everyman who plays Hedda.

The cookbook explosion of the past two decades has not been limited to the new and exotic. Scholars and cooks have been looking back as well, finding forgotten recipes in America's culinary history.No region has been more rewarding than the South, in no small part because a preoccupation with entertaining has been a regional characteristic there. And over the years, women published recipe collections.Three of the best have been reissued this year by the University of South Carolina Press in a "First Cookbooks in America series:" "The Virginia House-wife," by Mary Randolph (1824)
TURIN, Italy -- In a downtown Salt Lake City bar four years ago, all eyes were on the TV, where a 35-year-old housewife from Scotland faced a seemingly impossible task: deliver a 42-pound stone 93 feet with pinpoint precision to break a tie and capture the Olympic gold in women's curling. When Rhona Martin coolly tapped the Swiss stone aside to give Great Britain the win over Switzerland, the Port 'O Call erupted. Men in football-team sweat shirts hooted and high-fived each other as if they were watching an AFC playoff game.

Those of us who came of age with the feminist movement wanted to be a Gloria Steinem kind of feminist. Not a Betty Friedan kind of feminist. We were not the restless suburban housewives for whom the frumpy, doughy Friedan spoke. We were not the woman who suffered "a nameless, aching dissatisfaction" with her life of chores and children. Instead, we were young careerists like the sleek and husky-voiced Steinem, who had the physical qualifications to make her journalistic mark in a bunny costume.
