5. You’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but this one looks fabulous! Up until now, we had always assumed that our favorite book-cover model was Fabio, but now Kyle Richards — shimmering hair and all — is giving him a run for his money. And we have no doubt that her book will be as funny and down-to-earth as those photos were. It also seems that Kyle’s dog is getting jealous of all the attention that Giggy gets!
4. Lisa and Taylor are friends — for now. It’s nice that Taylor Armstrong and Lisa seem to have patched things up for the time being — even if Camille and Brandi aren’t too happy about it. And just a few weeks ago, it would have been hard to imagine Taylor getting invited to Pandora’s bachelorette party in Vegas, and yet that’s just what happened. It was also cute to hear Taylor talking about spending her birthday with Kennedy. (Hey, Kennedy — any chance you can save a cupcake for us next time?)
3. Camille and Brandi cut loose. We’re not sure why Adrienne Maloof seemed surprised about the way that Camille and Brandi were shaking it on the dance floor in Vegas, considering that’s pretty much what Camille did the last time she hit the dance floor with Adrienne in Vegas in Season 1. And it’s nice that Camille and Brandi are becoming so close, since things seem pretty much hopeless for Brandi and Kyle’s friendship.
2. Lisa wins! (But don’t tell Ken.) Lisa loves to talk a big game, but we weren’t sure if she would walk the walk during that Chippendale’s lap-dance contest; boy, did she ever! Pandora and Taylor didn’t stand a chance when compared to Lisa’s performance, which ended with her just about on the ground. Also, if we never hear the words “you-know-what sock” again, it’ll be too soon.
1. Kyle comforts Kim. We were puzzled when Kim Richards skipped out on both Adrienne’s Vegas bash and Kyle’s photo shoot, but then we got more insight into her situation as she poured her heart out to Kyle, tearfully explaining that her relationship with controlling Ken is dividing her family. Between this and recent reports about Kim’s return to rehab, we just hope she’s finally on the road to happiness. We’re with you, Kim!
