Who’s livin’ large and who’s been relegated to the pool house? We rank The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Episode 1.6, entitled “The Art of War,” in our weekly Power Rankings. Let the countdown begin!

TAYLOR
Ranking: 6 (out of 6)
Last week’s ranking: 5
Here’s why: It’s a last-place finish for Tay, after she resumes her feud with Kim. And Taylor continues to resent her poor dog, too. At least Snowball pays attention to Taylor, which is more than we can say for Russell!

CAMILLE
Ranking: 5
Last week: 6
Here’s why: Camille has trouble with her friends and with her husband. You know things have gotten frosty with your husband when one of your only exchanges with him involves asking him for his autograph!

KIM
Ranking: 4
Last week: 3
Here’s why: Kim wouldn’t have needed to give away that jewelry as a peace offering if she had just backed up her sister. Kim appears to be less reliable than a generic-brand carpet cleaner.

LISA
Ranking: 3
Last week: 2
Here’s why: Somehow, even poor Lisa got dragged into the fray, with Camille accusing her of implying that she is insecure. We’re sure that Lisa was envious of her husband, Ken, who’s biggest concern this week was keeping their pet turtle out of the swimming pool.

ADRIENNE
Ranking: 2
Last week: 1
Here’s why: Paul’s difficulty operating her necklace clasp seemed like the least of her worries after the two of them had that spat about Paul ditching her to go drinking with the guys. Apparently, Paul’s role model for how to be a good husband is Homer Simpson.

KYLE
Ranking: 1
Last week: 4
Here’s why: We gotta give Kyle credit for her peacemaking efforts this week, both by calling Camille to apologize and attending Kelsey’s play to support Camille. Granted, we did scoff a little when Kyle claimed to “hate fights.” Saying that Kyle hates fights is like saying that Will Ferrell hates making sports comedies.
