DANA WILKEY Ranking: 7 Last week: N/A Here’s why: Talk about making a memorable appearance — although not necessarily in a good way. Dana spent much of her time last season at the bottom of our Power Rankings, so perhaps it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that she’s back here this week, given her hot mess of a scene with Taylor. We’re just glad Dana didn’t actually vomit when discussing her hatred of Brandi.
KIM RICHARDS Ranking: 6 Last week: 5 Here’s why: Is Kim telling the truth about making an honest mistake by taking meds that are known to give her seizures — or is she making excuses? We’d like to give Kim the benefit of the doubt, but we also think she should have found a better time to sit down with her sister for a serious talk.
KYLE RICHARDS Ranking: 5 Last week: 3 Here’s why: Kyle has proven to be quite supportive of Kim lately — although we wish Kyle could have sat down with Kim at a more private setting, rather than during the middle of her store opening. Still, we’re excited for Kyle’s fab new boutique — and we wouldn’t mind borrowing those giant scissors for any household snipping we may have to do.
TAYLOR ARMSTRONG Ranking: 4 Last week: N/A Here’s why: Yolanda can be intimidating, so we give credit to Taylor for admitting she was wrong about David Foster and for not arguing much with Yolanda at the store opening. And we appreciate Taylor’s hunch that talking to Dana about her drinking during their outing wouldn’t do much good — although Dana could definitely benefit from some supportive friends.
LISA VANDERPUMP Ranking: 3 Last week: 4 Here’s why: Seeing Lisa joking around with her bestie Kevin Lee — as she does when they plan Lisa and Ken’s vow renewal party — never fails to make us smile. And we love seeing Kevin do his best to convince Lisa to throw a million-dollar party. Nice try, buddy.
BRANDI GLANVILLE Ranking: 2 Last Week: 1 Here’s why: Kudos to Brandi for having the sense to avoid Adrienne Maloof at Kyle’s boutique opening, since that inevitably would have been trouble. We also love Brandi’s speech about how much she enjoyed Kim’s company in Paris. And we completely agree, Brandi: New shoes are always better than a man.
YOLANDA FOSTER Ranking: 1 Last week: 2 Here’s why: Here it is — Yolanda’s first time ever in the top spot! And she definitely earned it, as she calmly defuses the tension with Taylor while also talking lovingly about her husband. It’s also cute to see her make Brandi’s day with those new shoes. Any chance you can get us a pair of shoes one of these days, Yolanda?
