Things get heated when the ladies get dinner at SUR on this week's recap of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4, Episode 9: "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." So grab some Visine, hop on the sea bus, and do your best to make your mother-in-law uncomfortable.
Shopping With the In-Laws
Carlton and David take his mom out for lingerie shopping, which reveals just how
inappropriate unusual the relationship is between Carlton and her mother-in-law. Carlton wants to buy sexy outfits for her mother-in-law, although her mother-in-law admits that she thinks Carlton's bikini is too skimpy. Agree to disagree.
It's Yolanda's anniversary, and she's having an emergency of sorts, meaning that she's having zit issues. Uh, some people's definition of "emergency" is different than other people's. However, Brandi has the rather brilliant suggestion to put Visine on them. We are totally going to try that next.
Kim Richards heads to a race track, while Kyle Richards invites her pals over for a fashion show. Kyle is shocked that her clothes don't fit Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud... and we're kinda surprised, too.
Where Are You From?
Lisa Vanderpump feels that she's been nagging Brandi too much, so she invites the ladies over to SUR in an effort to fix things. Brandi chats with Lisa's pal Martin at the beginning, letting him know that she's not a Joyce fan. And sure enough, Joyce doesn't acknowledge Brandi as she walks in. Ouch.
Mohamed Hadid — who happens to be with a different woman than he was last season — asks about things between Brandi and Joyce, and as you might guess, the ladies aren't on great terms.
Joyce and Brandi then disagree about Brandi's phone call to Joyce regarding Joyce trying to fix Lisa's hair — move on from Hairgate, already! — and then Joyce's husband makes a big deal about how he'll have his wife's back. Is that chivalry? We're not sure.
Lisa tries to defend Brandi, but Brandi keeps dropping f-bombs as Joyce continues the argument and calls Brandi a racist. Finally, Joyce's husband is shocked by Brandi's behavior, so Brandi tells him to go back to where he came from. Sigh.
Our Overall Thoughts
Brandi needs to seriously calm down with the drinking, right? At this point, we don't think Joyce and Brandi will ever resolve things, so they just need to move on. And we admire Lisa's efforts to improve things with the ladies, but clearly it did not go as planned.
We're looking forward to next week's episode, with Kyle's fashion show. If anyone needs us, we'll be bathing in Visine.
