The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Welcome, Brandi Glanville!

by at . Comments

The mean girls came out to play on the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday night. THG examines all the cattiness in our weekly +/- recap!

We start off with Adrienne and Paul still waiting on Kim. Minus 5. The plane is on the runway and everyone is waiting but still no Kim. When she finally arrives she looks exactly how Paul suspected... intoxicated. Of course no one can say for sure but if this is Kim's behavior sober, that's just pretty darn scary.

Kim took an awfully long time to take her sunglasses off. Was it simply that she wasn't happy with her makeup? As her story goes, her power went out and she had to go to a neighbor's house to apply it before she could leave for the airport.

When they finally arrives at the game Kim just won't shut up. Plus 8 for the look on Adrienne's face as Taylor blathers on and for Paul who just tells her to be quiet and watch the game. Somehow Kim doesn't strike me as a big sports fan.

Then we cut to Taylor who has run to Kyle to complain about an article in the paper about her and Russell's disintegrating marriage. Kyle asks where they could have gotten such information. Umm.  Ladies, look up. Do you see those cameras following you around. Your personal lives are now public fodder and in case you've forgotten, you signed up for this. Minus 15 for being oblivious to the obvious.

Taylor and Russell are so serious about their privacy that they have their house staff sign confidentiality agreements but they sign on for a reality TV show? Why on earth would they do that? Minus another 10 for making no sense at all but as they say, common sense isn't very common.

We didn't see much of Camille. She decided to take a trip. Since she's still dealing with the end of her marriage and the emotional fall out, she's decided to do that in Hawaii. Plus 9. It sounds like a good a place as any.

Finally we get to Kyle's charity cocktail party and the ladies are in rare form. First Lisa accosts Taylor. She hounds her about her severe weight loss. Although I understand the fear, having this conversation in the middle of a party seemed pretty rude. Minus 7.

That leads Taylor to wonder if Lisa is the one who leaked her personal information to the press since her weight loss was mentioned in the article. I suppose it is a coincidence but considering Taylor looks like she's wasting away, more people should be concerned for her welfare.

In Taylor's defense, it's hard to accept help from a woman who keeps reminding you that she's not your friend. Minus 5 for what felt like a backhanded offer from Lisa. Although I honestly think Lisa was trying to be helpful in her own bossy bitch type of way.

Then we meet Adrienne's friend Brandi and everyone is in an uproar. Brandi Glanville is Eddie Cibrian's ex. The one he left for LeAnn Rimes. Ouch. And heaven forbid she's been seen with Cedric. Because of it the poor woman can't shake Lisa's glare all evening. Minus 5.

I found Brandi funny, whether she's trying to be is a whole other question. She broke her leg wearing extremely high heels and then continues to wear stilettos with her cast. Now that earns a Plus 10 for sheer ridiculousness. 

But the ladies got really catty towards Brandi. Speculating on her relationships and making fun of her heels while the woman is sitting mere feet away. I really hate those kind of mean girl tactics, Minus 12.

Something tells me Brandi isn't going to go quietly. It looks like we'll being seeing more of her so the ladies will either need to learn how to play nice, or sharpen their claws. Which do you think it will be.

EPISODE TOTAL: -32. SEASON TOTAL: -99.

Brandi is a little younger and prettier than most of the woman on the show so she wll be met with some resistance. I think she is funny and a good, real addition to the show and I wish everyone would stop saying Eddie left her for Leann Rimes, I believe Brandi kicked HIM out over it, he wanted to stay with Brandi.
