Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4, Episode 6 Recap — Brandi Vs. Joyce!

Get juiced about tonight's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4, Episode 6 recap! The ladies head to Palm Springs, where things get extremely heated and we're not just talking about the temperature. And a note to self: People apparently get upset when you call them the wrong name for, oh, about the 2,378th time. Good to know.

What's in a Name?

The episode begins with Brandi Glanville having a very sexy talk with some of her friends, as they discuss what should and shouldn't be done with two fingers. Let's move on, shall we? Then, Kim Richards and her daughter Kimberly have a talk... about Kimberly finding sex toys in Kim's drawer. So much for us trying to move on!

Kyle Richards meets up with Carlton Gebbia, and after Carlton hears Kyle's friend talk all about Kyle's butt, Carlton shares her laundry list with Kyle of reasons why she herself isn't on Team Kyle. The reasons include Kyle making light of Carlton's faith and cutting her short when she was telling her dead bird story. Somehow, we have a feeling that Kyle's reaction to this list might actually get added to the list.

Joyce is organizing a trip for the ladies to Palm Springs, and so everyone packs accordingly which, for Kim Richards, apparently means packing a juicer. The women arrive at the place, but Yolanda Foster isn't impressed and immediately needs an iron. These women really like roughing it, don't they?

The revelry ends once everyone heads out to the pool. Brandi starts the awkwardness by referring to Joyce as "Jacqueline," explaining that Joyce sounds like the name of Mrs. Claus rather than a Puerto Rican woman. Brandi tries to convince everyone to join her in the pool, and when Joyce doesn't want to, Brandi says. "You're a black person." Ughhh.

Siberia Sounds More Appealing Than Being at This Dinner

Things don't get much calmer at dinner. Brandi continues using "Jacqueline" as her name for "Joyce," which makes Joyce more and more frustrated. When Brandi calls her "Yoyce," Joyce says that reminds her of getting bullied in school. Lisa Vanderpump says she shouldn't bring up bullying, but Kim feels that it is okay for her to do so.

Finally, with Brandi getting ever drunker, Joyce tells the group that she's starring in NBC's Siberia, which just makes Brandi want to take out her weave. Uh, okay. Then, Brandi says "Joyce" is a fat pig, and when Joyce tells Brandi to get a new name if she doesn't like hers, Brandi says to go f—k herself. Clearly, this is Brandi's favorite retort.

Then, things get tense between Kyle and Yolanda, with Kyle saying that Brandi and Lisa are just teaming up with Yolanda against her. And because Brandi isn't quite done yet, she calls Kyle a "crazy asshole." Yep, it was one of those nights.

Our Overall Thoughts

After a few rather tame and light-hearted episodes, this week's was definitely wild. Clearly, Brandi does not like Joyce and went overboard in egging her on. Apparently, Brandi really resented how Joyce created drama around her phone call about the hair-fixing drama a few weeks back. Still, we're proud of Joyce for not losing her cool this week.

We're getting a little tired of Kyle and Yolanda constantly playing she-said, she-said about whether Yolanda insulted Lisa in Paris. These two needs to talk it over in private, and then move on already! We also respect Kyle for not getting overly flustered when Carlton hit her with that list of grievances.

Now, we can't wait to see how this tense trip wraps up! If anyone needs up, we'll be calmly having some juice.
