BRANDI AND KEN VS. MAURICIO INSTIGATOR: Mauricio WHY:Brandi Glanville brings up her legal issues with Adrienne Maloof, so Mauricio Umansky tells the former model to call the casino owner. Mauricio also wants to know why Brandi made comments about Adrienne’s family in the first place. WINNER: No winner. Mauricio may have had a valid point about how Brandi could smooth things over by making an effort to call Adrienne, but the way he went about it was a bit on the pushy side. And we appreciate Ken Todd getting Brandi’s back, but we weren’t always sure we knew what his point was. (Something about Brandi not having a man?) Let’s hope that the husbands can eventually get back to their chummy, cigar-smoking days of previous seasons.
KYLE AND YOLANDA VS. KIM INSTIGATOR: Kyle Richards and Yolanda Foster WHY: Yolanda accosts Kim Richards for not meeting up with her to start the master cleanse, while Kyle tells Yolanda that Kim is flaky. WINNER: Kim. Did Kim blow Yolanda off? It’s hard to tell, since Kim doesn’t remember setting a date. And perhaps Kim could have chosen a more private venue to talk with Kyle than the restaurant, but that’s not how Kim rolls. Plus, it doesn’t appear that the sisters get a lot of one-on-one time these days, so Kim had to seize the moment. However, we really weren’t loving Kyle’s dig about how she doesn’t trust to Kim to stay sober.
BRANDI VS. KIM INSTIGATOR: Kim WHY: After Mauricio implies that Brandi is a “gossiper,” Kim backs him up by bringing up her “crystal meth” accusation from last season. WINNER: Brandi. We understand that Kim is clearly still hurt by Brandi’s comments, but piling on Brandi in a group setting doesn’t really help things. Brandi has clearly tried to patch things up with Kimi, so we wish Kim would allow the two of them to move on.
TAYLOR VS. CAMILLE INSTIGATOR:Taylor Armstrong WHY: Taylor is still bothered that Camille Grammer brought up her issues with Russell last season. WINNER: Camille. Taylor mentions over dinner that her issues with Russell were “heavier” — and therefore more deserving of legal action — than Adrienne’s issues. But some viewers might not have even realized this was a swipe at Camille (who received a letter threatening legal action), given how she graciously didn’t let the comment faze her. Well done, Camille!
