4. Lisa has a new (or possibly old) enemy Last season saw no shortage of entertainment from minor characters (everyone from Sexy Nick to Allison “Psycho Psychic” DuBois), but this season is looking promising. Enter Bernie, Adrienne and Paul’s personal chef who apparently hates Lisa for a remark that she made about his cooking. And what would this show be without people holding onto grudges?
3. As if there were any doubt that Cedric’s a publicity fiend... Speaking of Lisa haters, who should Taylor randomly run into but Lisa’s pool-boy-turned-nemesis Cedric? We then learn that Taylor herself is intimidated by Lisa. But it’s a tad suspicious that there was no actual footage of the Cedric sighting. Come to think of it, there wasn’t any footage of last year’s infamous Kyle-Camille blow-up in Vegas, either. This show needs some new camera people, stat!
2. Paul and Adrienne bring Jackpot into their Wonderful World of Dysfunction If you had watched the Season 2 premiere without knowing which couple would soon be getting a divorce, you would be convinced that it’s Paul and Adrienne. Their conflicts are so trivial (what food should be served or who should give a toast) that we wonder if they’re not playing up the drama for the cameras. Remind us never to use Paul’s hand towels without asking!
1. Ken says, “Who’s offensive? Not innocent little me!” All last season, Ken remained a bit of an objector to the show’s drama. However, this season Ken has already upgraded to a full-on participant. His comments about therapy being “weak” cause Taylor to flee from the dinner table. When Kyle Richards lets Ken know Taylor was “offended” by his comments, Ken feels, well, offended. Actually, Ken, “offensive” is probably one on the mild side of word choices.
