Who’s livin’ large, and who’s been relegated to the pool house? We rank The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 3, Episode 12: “Kim Nose Best,” in our weekly Power Rankings. Let the countdown begin!
Ranking: 8 (out of 8)
Last week: 5 (out of 8)
Here’s why: We’re not trying to put all the blame on Camille, but it’s hard to believe she would voluntarily bring up Adrienne on the Vegas trip, as if she doesn’t remember all the previous drama. Plus, Camille’s SUR accusation to Lisa was out-of-line, and it was puzzling to see Camille admit to Brandi at the end of the episode that she remembers more about Adrienne’s planned ambush of Lisa than she was letting on. All in all, not a great week for Cam.
Last week: 8
Here’s why: Adrienne again wasn’t involved much this week. And while it’s always fun to see her take charge of a new business enterprise like her bag line, her comments about Brandi’s business being on the pole come off as catty. Let your awesome business ventures speak for themselves, Adrienne!
Last Week: 1
Here’s why: We had one thing to say to Brandi as she brought up Adrienne not owning the Palms: “What the heck are you thinking?!” We’re also relieved that Brandi’s comment about Camille doing porn didn’t cause a war, as we were afraid it might. Still, the ladies did have fun at Brandi’s stripper event, so it’s nice to see the side of Brandi that encourages everyone to laugh and be silly. A note to Brandi: More of that side, please!
Last week: 4
Here’s why: Kyle is right to want to keep the discussion of Kim’s nose job within the family, so we appreciate her not speaking poorly of Kim at the dinner table in Vegas. It was also sweet to see Kyle visit Kim post-surgery — and tell her to put down that e-cigarette. Still, if Kyle is so concerned about Kim’s nose job being a private matter, why would Kyle feel compelled to bring up Brandi’s nose job in front of the group?
Last week: 2
Here’s why: Yolanda is often a voice of reason, and while she got into it a little bit with Kyle and then shushed Camille, we generally appreciate what Yolanda has to say. And perhaps Yolanda’s best contribution to the episode was giving the ladies a means by which to leave dinner early. Saved by the jet!
Last week: 3
Here’s why: Marisa certainly wasn’t having a blast at Brandi’s stripping event — and we can’t imagine that pole-dancing is for everyone — but she still made an effort to swing on the pole, wish we appreciated. And we admired Marisa even more for staying out of the Vegas dinner drama. Plus, if we ever spill red wine on our clothes, we now have a new method for removing it, thanks to her!
Last week: 7
Here’s why: We were nervous about the motivation behind Kim’s nose job, especially since we haven’t seen anything wrong with her nose to begin with. But realizing that Kim has a deviated septum — and then hearing that she’s avoiding pain meds — has us feeling confident in Kim’s decision-making. Take a few puffs on that e-cigarette, Kim — you’ve earned it. Plus, we’re loving her new dog, Kingsley! Too cute.
Last week: 6
Here’s why: We knew Lisa’s surprisingly low ranking last week would be a fluke! This week, we love how Lisa calmly handles Camille’s accusation about her not owning SUR by being upfront with how much she owns. We also adore Lisa’s outdoor two-person tea party with Ken at the end — along with the fact that she was willing to shake it on the stripper pole, despite her previous reservations. We’re just relieved that Ken didn’t share his tea cup with Giggy.
