Another week, another chance to waste thousands and thousands of dollars — such is the life of a Real Housewife. Let's see how the gals bounced their checks this week, shall we?

Last week, most of our beloved Beverly Hillbillies headed out east for the star-studded opening of Kelsey Grammer's Broadway show, The Seven Year Itch La Cage Aux Folles. Orchestra tickets for La Cage generally run around $140, with premium/cabaret set prices set at $251.50. At those prices, Kelsey's messy divorce from Camille will practically pay for itself.

No self-respecting Housewife would walk the red carpet at a Broadway gala without some new glad rags, which is precisely why Kyle and Lisa headed over to designer Christina Makowsky's boutique for a little retail therapy (if retail therapy was anything like regular therapy, then maybe Camille wouldn't be a walking bag of crazy). Lisa picked up the Pearl Cocktail Dress for a cool $1,895, and paired it with the Portrait Collared Crop Jacket (a mere $995!). That's right, Lisa spent $2,890 to look like a cheap, matronly bride at her fifth wedding. Sidenote: what the F is going on with the barefoot-n-busted model on the Christina Makowsky site? Girlfriend looks more Appalachian meth lab than she does haute couture.

Over in Hotlanta, Kandi threw herself a birthday party at her thrifty clothing boutique, TAGS. Go to their online website. Seriously, go — it's hilarious. Roughly 99% of the site content is about Kandi and her upcoming album; and, if you search hard enough, you just might find a link leading to the rather sad collection of clothes and accessories. Our favorite purchase? A pair of homeless-hooker-chic black boots that cost $165 — $165 that could be better spent on, well, just about anything.

Unless, of course, you're Kim, who undoubtedly spent a small fortune to buy that fright wig as a "Sorry I'm a Horrible Human and Friend/Happy Birthday" present for Kandi. Readers who would like their own fire-engine red rat's nest of a wig, and who would also like to be confused for an out-of-work drag queen, can hop over to Wigs.com where the blindingly awful "Scorpio" model goes for $162.

Oh, and how priceless was it when Sheree learned that her love doctor's degree isn't worth the cocktail napkin it's written on? We love us some Sheree schadenfreude.

Until next week, friends!
