TAYLOR ARMSTRONG Ranking: 7 (out of 7) Last week: 3 (out of 6) Here’s why: We wish Taylor hadn’t started rehashing last season’s drama with Camille when she compared what Camille said about her and Russell to what Brandi said about Adrienne. But Taylor herself has admitted to being “embarrassed” by what she said at Mauricio’s party, so we won’t dwell on this.
KYLE RICHARDS Ranking: 6 Last week: 2 Here’s why: We appreciate that Kyle and Mauricio feel it would be wrong to un-invite Brandi to the dinner party, but that etiquette is sort of negated when the dinner party just seems like a chance for Faye to bash Brandi. Indeed, it would have been nice if Kyle could have stepped in more during the fray to keep it from getting quite so out-of-hand. Come to think of it, we feel badly for Kyle’s chef, who made all that food which no one seemed to touch.
KIM RICHARDS Ranking: 5 Last week: 4 Here’s why: It was great seeing Kim bond with her daughters at pilates, as her daughter Kimberly showed her support for maintaining her sobriety. We’re not sure what happened with Kyle not getting invited to join Kim’s family in Vegas, but we can understand if Kim was worried that having Kyle there might create unnecessary tension. After all, that Season 1 trip to Vegas certainly didn’t end well for Kyle.
YOLANDA FOSTER Ranking: 4 Last week: N/A Here’s why: It’s nice that Yolanda wants to stay healthy, but we got a little stressed by the notion that her husband might leave her if she doesn’t “keep that ass tight,” to use her words. And watching Yolanda charge up and down her stairs during her workout made us realize that she probably doesn’t take the elevator to the second story of buildings whenever possible, as we do.
CAMILLE GRAMMER Ranking: 3 Last Week: N/A Here's why: We loved how calm and composed Camille was when Taylor came at her about their issues from last season — and Camille even was willing to agree that Taylor was in the right. Way to go, Camille!
Ranking: 2 Last Week: 6 Here’s why: Faye and Kyle might have a point that Brandi apologizing to Adrienne would be appropriate, but they certainly conveyed the message in the wrong way. And we commend Brandi for staying as calm as she did during that dinner party. It was also very sweet that she sent flowers to Ken after his surgery — although we’re just relieved she didn’t send him another rubber sheet and tequila gun.
LISA VANDERPUMP Ranking: 1 Last week: 1 Here’s why:This marks three straight weeks for Lisa in the number one spot! Then again, that sounds about right, given that everyone else has been embroiled in this messy Brandi-Adrienne feud. We appreciate that Lisa was willing to speak up at Kyle’s dinner party and point out that Kyle never would have sent Brandi flowers after their tiff. We also cracked up watching Ken hassle Lisa about tea and biscuits. They really are two English peas in a pod.
