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 14: “White Party Pooper,” in our weekly Power Rankings. Let the countdown begin!
 
ADRIENNE MALOOF
Ranking: 7 (out of 7)
Last week: 6 (out of 9)
Here’s why: It’s tough that Adrienne’s screentime was mostly spent either fighting with Paul about the fire or arguing with Brandi, as Adrienne gets awfully nitpicky about what qualifies as “legal action.” We also could have done without Adrienne saying how great Paul would have made Kim’s nose look. And it’s safe to say Adrienne will make sure not to over-tan ever again.

TAYLOR ARMSTRONG
Ranking: 6
Last week: 9
Here’s why: You know it’s a bad sign when even Kim thinks you sound loopy. In fact, we won’t deny that Taylor sounded a little odd when she called Kim and Kyle to say that she was flying off with a new guy. Still, Taylor could use some romance, so if she’s has found a new guy who is also good with Kennedy, we’re all for it.

MARISA ZANUCK
Ranking: 5
Last week: 3
Here’s why: Word to the wise: Never chew gum in front of Kyle! Lesson learned. And we’re happy that Kim is feeling good about her own nose job, but we couldn’t help but cringe a little when Marisa talked about wanting to get a new nose, too. C’mon, Marisa you look beautiful! Stop the madness!

KYLE RICHARDS
Ranking: 4
Last week: 5
Here’s why: We like that Kyle had plenty of positive words to say about Kim’s progress, along with the fact that Kyle seems so good with Kennedy. Kyle did an amazing job putting the White Party together as usual, so we did not envy her when things got chaotic as they always seem to do at her parties. Side note: Were we the only ones who thought the inflatable octopus was kinda cute?

BRANDI GLANVILLE
Ranking: 3
Last Week: 7
Here’s why: Brandi made a lot of right moves in attempting to move forward with Adrienne, as she tried to talk one-on-one with her, although Paul wouldn’t let that happen. And given all the contradictory statements that have been made, it was helpful that Brandi brought those emails, even though it’s true that Adrienne didn’t get to bring any visual aids herself. By the way, if you ask us, Brandi can call Ken her boyfriend all she wants.

LISA VANDERPUMP
Ranking: 2
Last week: 1
Here’s why: We might have preferred if Lisa and Ken had given Brandi and Adrienne some space to finish their discussion, but given that Adrienne had Paul in her corner, we can understand why Lisa wanted to back up Brandi. It was also nice seeing Lisa and Kyle bond, even if it was only a brief moment as they discovered their (gasp!) matching-shoe faux pas.

KIM RICHARDS
Ranking: 1
Last week: 5
Here’s why: We certainly wouldn’t have expected Kim to grab the top spot this week, especially after last week’s so-so ranking. But Kim had a great attitude at the party as she vamped for everyone without her nose bandage. And we appreciate that Kim is concerned for Taylor and doesn’t want her following in her footsteps. These days, Kim nose best.
