Meltdown? What meltdown?
Taylor's a little fuzzy on the details. Over lunch with new BFF Lisa, she mentions she was so drunk at the party she doesn't really remember what she said or did.
She seems content to put the blame on Camille and her over the top friend D.D.
Lisa's take on all of this? Let's go to Vegas. Minus 8. Perhaps Vegas isn't the best destination for someone who has partied so hard they've blacked out.
But a big Plus 20 because we witnessed Taylor eating something. The woman who takes skinny to a whole new level actually had some pizza! High priced, gourmet pizza but pizza nevertheless. Maybe a little more food and a little less alcohol will help stabilize her erratic moods.
Speaking of food, Adrienne and Paul are doing a guest spot on The Doctors to talk about how a power couple maintains a healthy lifestyle. Off camera Adrienne calls Paul out for his unhealthy behavior. His idea of several small meals includes popcorn, candy and other junk foods. I like Paul more with every episode. Plus 7.
OK. Who invites their Mom to their Bachelorette party? That's just plain weird. Minus 9. Is this a Beverly Hills thing? But off to Vegas they go to see the Chipmunks, as Lisa calls them.
No, no. It's not the chipmunks but the Chipendales (if you have small children you really need to get those two straight). And after being introduced to cock socks and lap dance contests I think Lisa figured it out.
As a matter of fact, Lisa won the lap dance contest. Who knew the stuffy Brit had it in her? Plus 12.
Over at the Palm we had a competing girls night out. Adrienne has Camille, Brandi, and Dana to her King Pin Suite. After a night of bowling in high heels they head to the club where Camille and Brandi are practically feeling one another up on the dance floor.
Did anyone else notice the strange guy trying to make his way in between them. Nice try, pal. Minus 6. Move along.
Kyle can't make it to either party. She's got a photo shoot for her new book. What Housewife doesn't have her own book deal these days?
What's Kyle's book about? Well, Kyle of course. Isn't that what we all need in our lives, more Kyle? Maybe she'll have photos of her talent for doing splits at parties. Minus 10. I'll be sure to put it on my Christmas list.
Kim can't make it to Vegas either. There's a surprise. I think she's blown off more events than she's attended this season. Minus 5.
Just when I thought the night would be meltdown free, Kim is bawling on her sister's shoulder. Her kids don't like all the time she's spending with her new live-in lover and he seems more than a little controlling. Perhaps Kim should have given family and friends more time to get to know him before deciding to move in.
Kim can't stop the tears and Kyle's only more convinced she's with the wrong guy. Kyle's right about one thing. Kim needs to work on pulling herself together but the odds of that happening any time soon don't look good.
And that brings us to the end of another drama filled hour in Beverly Hills. I'm exhausted just watching.
EPISODE TOTAL: +1. SEASON TOTAL: -321.
