Who’s livin’ large and who’s been relegated to the pool house? We rank The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the Season 2 Reunion, Part 1 in our weekly Power Rankings. Let the countdown begin!

ADRIENNE MALOOF
Ranking: 5 (out of 5)
Last week’s ranking: 5 (out of 5)
Here’s why: We still love Adrienne, even though this is her second straight week in the basement. It just seemed like she was looking for a fight and appeared to be holding grudges against Lisa, especially over things that didn’t seem like huge issues. However, she did make a nice comment about Kim’s strength during her recovery..

CAMILLE GRAMMER
Ranking: 4
Last week: 2
Here’s why: We understand that Camille feels the need to defend her comments about Russell’s abuse, but at this point, it’s starting to feel like a broken record. Camille also seemed to be teaming up against Lisa on issues that she wasn’t really involved with, like about how the “hoof” comment was offensive. And we’re thinking Camille is probably the first person in about 50 years to use the phrase “swapping spit.” Time for some new lingo, girl.

KYLE RICHARDS
Ranking: 3
Last week: 3
Here’s why: Kyle seemed like she was trying to stay above the fray — and we respected that she decided to let Kim speak for herself about her rehab stint — but then Kyle got sucked in, calling Lisa “condescending,” followed by that infamous “Bobby Fischer” comment. Between that chess remark and the ladies’ previous game night debacle, who knew that children’s games could get so vicious? (This is why we stick to solitaire.)

LISA VANDERPUMP
Ranking: 2
Last week: 1
Here’s why: Lisa’s jokes can be a little catty at times, but we really don’t think she means to be hurtful, so it was tough to see all the Lisa-bashing that was going on. Even when Lisa tried to say that she wanted a pair of Adrienne’s shoes, Adrienne took umbrage with Lisa calling them “pink.” (Poor Lisa couldn’t win!) If you ask us, the only time it’s okay to fight over shoes is if you’re at a 50% off sale at Barneys!

TAYLOR ARMSTRONG
Ranking: 1
Last week: 4
Here’s why: A rare first-place finish for Taylor! We were impressed by Taylor’s positive attitude, not to mention her honesty about her marriage. And sure, everyone got a touch hostile at the reunion this week, but Taylor seemed to be the most calm about the other women’s comments. (And that’s good, as we’re not sure that this positivity will last, based on clips we’ve seen of next week’s show!)
