Jealousy, impatience, anger, annoyance: all sweet, sweet fodder for the most sensational catfights. When the women are swillin' the ol' haterade, we've got your ringside coverage. Here are the highlights from Episode 9 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, “Otherwise Engaged.” Get ready to rumble!

KIM VS. KYLE
INSTIGATOR: Kim
WHY: Kim has kept her boyfriend a secret from Kyle for the past year, since she says that her family never likes anyone.
WINNER: Kyle. Okay, so there’s clearly some frayed family history between these two, and we also understand that new romantic relationships sometimes need to be free from outside influences. But to wait a whole year to tell your sister about your boyfriend? That seems a little weird, to say nothing of how poor Ken must feel to be hidden away for so long. Not even last season’s Single Gary got treated that harshly.

TAYLOR VS. LISA
INSTIGATOR: Taylor
WHY: Taylor and Russell suspect Lisa of telling Us Weekly that they’ve separated. Also, Taylor resents that Lisa asked her not to bring Russell to Mohamed’s party.
WINNER: Taylor. We really don’t know at this point whether Lisa gave the story to Us Weekly or not, but we’re giving Taylor the win for being classy enough to still show up for Pandora’s party, and for not spoiling the party by confronting Lisa at that moment. Still, we have to imagine that this could get rather ugly in the coming weeks. (In other words, we’re worried that Taylor may start to hate Lisa almost as much as she hates snakes.)

LISA VS. MAX
INSTIGATOR: Lisa
WHY: Lisa keeps complaining about her son, this time about the fact that he’s late to start getting dressed for the party. Oh, and that he smells bad. (Ouch.)
WINNER: Max. Lisa frequently expects the worst of Max, and yet he always seems to come through when it really matters. Then again, given his very laid-back demeanor, we wouldn’t have been all that surprised if he had actually shown up to Mohamed’s party wearing that backpack. (You never know when you’re gonna get bored of your mom’s friends doing the splits and want some reading material, right?)
