KIM RICHARDS Ranking: 5 (out of 5) Last week: 6 (out of 7) Here’s why: We understand why Kim is hurt by Lisa insinuating that she had relapsed, but Kim needs to be aware that her behavior — caused by taking the wrong prescription meds — is certainly unsettling. However, one of our favorite moments this week was Mauricio and Kim bonding over that purse. You’ve got a lot of people in your corner, Kim!
LISA VANDERPUMP Ranking: 4 Last week: 1 Here’s why: Talk about a precipitous decline for Lisa from last week! Lisa does seem concerned about Kim’s health, but she probably should have listened to Brandi and given Kim and Kyle some space while they had a private moment in the van. And we agree that Lisa’s comments to Mauricio about Kim could have waited until Kim wasn’t in the same room. Still, Lisa always makes us laugh, as she did with her “on top” comments to Yolanda.
KYLE RICHARDS Ranking: 3 Last week: 5 Here’s why: Kyle had a good sense of how to deal with Kim’s unsettling demeanor this week, between pounding on Kim’s hotel door to make sure she’s okay, and then having a heart-to-heart with her in the van. We’re glad these two are making progress — but we wish it weren’t under these circumstances. We also hope she and Lisa keep working on their own issues.
YOLANDA FOSTER Ranking: 2 Last week: 2 Here’s why: Yolanda often knows just what to say, as she proves by telling her pal Lisa to cool it when talking about Kim at the dinner table. And we love watching her bond during her jog with Brandi — even if we don’t agree with Brandi about being wanting to try the green drink that Yolanda likes so much.
BRANDI GLANVILLE Ranking: 1 Last Week: 3 Here’s why: It has been quite some time since Brandi occupied the top spot, but she definitely deserved it this week! Brandi is showing she can still be herself — hence, the “F.U.” message and flirtations with the chef — without causing drama. In fact, she’s a great friend to Kim. We just wish we could hear more from Brandi about this guy she claims to be dating. We need the deets!
