TAYLOR ARMSTRONG Ranking: 7 (out of 7) Last week: 6 (out of 7) Here’s why: Taylor wasn’t involved much this week — except when people were discussing their problems with her. We do give Taylor credit for not getting combative during Kim and Kyle’s intervention, and for not making a scene when Yolanda asks why she doesn’t like her. However, there is clearly tension between Yolanda and Tay, so they would be best to address the real problem ASAP. Squash it, you two!
KIM RICHARDS Ranking: 6 Last week: 1 Here’s why: After last week’s surprising first-place finish, this week was a mixed bag for Kim. On one hand, we admire her for helping Taylor. However, when Kim is late to meet the ladies in Paris and is sounding a bit on the incoherent side, we wonder if Kim wouldn’t be better off just concentrating on her own issues for the time being. Regardless, we now know that if we ever need to get Kim a gift, we’ll choose something turtle-related.
KYLE RICHARDS Ranking: 5 Last week: 4 Here’s why: Kyle’s involvement this week was limited, other than supporting her sister to meet with Taylor. We definitely enjoyed seeing Kyle and Kim get closer, as Kim bravely reveals her secrets to getting drunk around Kyle. And we loved the look on Kyle’s face when she thought Giggy followed the ladies all the way to Paris on his own. Apparently, Giggy loves a good croissant as much as the rest of us do.
MARISA ZANUCK Ranking: 4 Last week: 5 Here’s why: First and foremost, our hearts go out to Marisa and Dean and their family, as they deal with Dean’s father’s sudden passing. Very sad. Also, it was nice to see how calmly Dean handles Marisa’s crack about wanting to sleep with other people, as he clearly realizes she’s just being silly. Still, she might want to tone down the whole “I want to cheat” thing just a bit.
BRANDI GLANVILLE Ranking: 3 Last Week: 3 Here’s why: Brandi was at her best in Paris this week, as she good-naturedly jokes with the other women (happy endings!) and opens up about the tough times in her own marriage (threesomes!). Sure, we love seeing Adrienne Maloof on the show, but it’s no coincidence that things are a lot calmer when Brandi and Adrienne aren’t face to face.
YOLANDA FOSTER Ranking: 2 Last week: N/A Here’s why: Yolanda threw one heck of a party this week — which is no surprise, given what a great hostess she is. We also continue to love how well she, David Foster, and ex-husband Mohamed Hadid all get along. Sure, things were close to getting messy between Yolanda and Taylor, but we do admire Yolanda’s willingness to put everything out in the open.
LISA VANDERPUMP Ranking: 1 Last week: 1 Here’s why: After her successful trip to visit Ken’s son in Saint-Tropez, Lisa is back in the top spot where she belongs! Lisa and Warren’s wife, Sue, might not be the best of friends, but we appreciate Lisa making the effort to stay close with her. We also loved Lisa and Ken’s playful squabbling before their trip about who deserves a cup of tea. You’ve more than earned that cup, Lisa!
