Who’s livin’ large and who’s been relegated to the pool house? We rank The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Episode 7, “Game Night Gone Wild!,” in our weekly Power Rankings, including a surprising first-timer at number one this week. Let the countdown begin!
Last week: 8
Here’s why: Yes, we realize this is the third consecutive week that Dana’s been in the bottom spot, and that’s rough. But Dana just keeps getting loopier, between her silly comments about that fur coat, to her pleading that Kim and Kyle take her on vacations with them. And then there are the times when we really have no idea what she’s talking about, as in that line about how “we’re from Beverly Hills” and “we live our life.” Huh?
Last week: 7
Here’s why: Let’s face it: Brandi may have made some harsh comments, but Kim has a lot of work to do in getting her life in order. First on the list would be no longer spraying Febreeze in her mouth.
Last week: 6
Here’s why: Okay, we weren’t thrilled with Brandi’s behavior this week, but we’re putting her slightly above Kim because she at least was willing to support Camille’s event (even if she was basically silent while there!). A note to Brandi: If you’re going to keep making wild accusations on a weekly basis, you may want to get a GPS locator for those crutches, since Kim might not be the last person who feels compelled to hide them from you.
Last week: 5
Here’s why: Kyle lands at number five again since we loved seeing her get her sister’s back at game night, even if they still have plenty to work on in their relationship. We also have to admit that watching Kyle and Portia staying warm together under that leopard-skin rug was just about the cutest thing we’ve ever seen (and we’ve seen a lot of kitten videos on YouTube).
Last week: 2
Here’s why: Sure, Camille was visibly nervous while speaking in public, but it was nice to see her bond with her mom for a good cause. We must admit, however, that her comment about Kyle being a “bitch” makes us nervous about a reprieve of last year. Also, how many people did Camille really need to give her feedback on which sunglasses to wear? (Why not just call up Dana, the self-appointed sunglasses expert?)
Last week: 3
Here’s why: We didn’t hear from Adrienne all that much, but when she did chime in about the game night spat, she was her usual diplomatic self. In fact, when it comes to bringing Brandi and the Richards sisters together, Adrienne might be our only hope to facilitate a truce. Well, Winston Churchill probably could have worked out a truce between them, too, but there were enough jokes about him this week. (Also, he’s been dead for 45 years, so that’s a definite hindrance.)
Last week: 1
Here’s why: If Kevin — the opinionated (to put it lightly) wedding planner — thinks he can push Lisa around, he’s got another thing coming. We love that Lisa is willing to do whatever Pandora wants to give her the perfect wedding, even if it means compromising about having it in a church. We also appreciate Lisa’s effort to strike up a convo with Brandi, but asking her what street she lives on isn’t the world’s most fascinating question. (In other words, Lisa is no Charlie Rose.)
Last week: 4
Here’s why: Well, well — if it isn’t Taylor’s first week at number one! Taylor impressed us multiple times this week, between putting a stop to the aggressive behavior between Brandi and Kim, to defending her frenemy Kim while grabbing lunch with Brandi (when Tay mentioned that Kim’s on anxiety meds).
