They're back. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have returned to the mainland at last. Can Kim and Kyle keep it together long enough to get through one party?

Let's find out, and break down the tears, in THG's patented +/- recap!

It's the grand opening party of Lisa's new lounge at Sur and all of the Housewives are invited. But the real fun comes from the unexpected guests ...

Lisa's scrambling with the finishing touches but Sur looks lovely so Plus 8 for a job well done. But as Ken tries to give her a congratulatory hug, she's too busy to enjoy it and brushes it off. She jokes that Ken can get his cuddle next year.

Lisa and Ken

These two are so funny they earn an additional Plus 5.

Everyone starts to arrive and Lisa and Brandi immediately poke fun at one another. Lisa's just happy Brandi's wearing more than a string bikini. Brandi goes to flirt with Ken who says he's much too short for Brandi, especially in her heels.

Lisa reminds him he's also much too married. These three are great when they let their hair down. Plus 10.

Brandi quickly realizes that a waitress at the event was her ex-husband, Eddie's mistress (no, not LeAnn Rimes). Well, that's awkward. Brandi tries to play it off but who wants to be around the woman their husband was screwing around with.

Lisa does the right thing and gives the waitress the night off. Plus 7 for quickly diffusing what could have been a bad situation.

The party in Hawaii continues but in true Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fashion, there's plenty of arguing, drama and tears to go with that wine.

Let's break down all the latest drama in THG's +/- recap!

Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof

We open with Adrienne and Paul taking a romantic hike along the beautiful island of Lanai. Adrienne admits that it's been years since they've held hands. Minus 9. That's just sad. These two obviously care for one another. They need to start having more alone time.

Kim and Ken finally arrive a day and a half late and that's when we suddenly have a contest for which sister can be more rude. 

First, Kim and Ken don't tell anyone they've arrived. Minus 7. It's simply polite to pick up the hotel phone and let your sister and host know you've finally made it.

But Kyle hears them in the next room and in her best impersonation of a 13 year old girl, runs to put her ear to the wall. She even runs outside in her towel to see if she can spot them from the balcony. Minus 10 because that's just pathetic.

Then Kim and Ken are the last ones to arrive to Mauricio's birthday dinner. Are these two ever on time to anything?

Brandi Glanville's 2012 started off on an interesting note when she married Darin Harvey, her friend and a Mixed Martial Arts manager, in Las Vegas.

"[We're] married!" Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife confirmed to Us Weekly.

Hold off on sending wedding gifts, though: "To make it legal, I have to go to the courthouse today and I don't think we're gonna. Super fun though!"

Brandi Glanville, Darin Harvey

"I'm married again- suuuuuuck it!" she wrote Sunday, later clarifying: "We're not gonna stay married. But it was a fun way to start out the new year!"

A source said that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who shares two sons with Cibrian, has been friends with Harvey for almost 20 years.

The duo are "like brother and sister" and "they've never hooked up," said the source. "He came with her to Vegas and they both got really drunk."

"They just thought it was a good idea at the time to get married. They kissed for the cameras and that was it. There’s nothing romantically there."

Happy New Year and annulment, you guys!

When the party drama ends, the trip begins as we follow The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on their Hawaiian adventure. Will the islands survive the cattiness of these intoxicated divas? We break it all down in this week's +/- recap!

The White Party continues after Taylor and Russell are tossed to the curb and Kyle finally stops the waterworks. Plus 10 because I'm not sure how much more of her sobbing I can take.

Plus 8 to Adrienne for sticking up for Camille. Taylor claims her words were exaggerated. Russell swears it's all a lie. Off camera Taylor backpedals and says the allegations of abuse are true. With all the different versions flying around it's hard to keep it all straight.

Taylor Armstrong's Lips

But Minus 15 because it's hard to concentrate on anything with Taylor's lips filling up the screen. Someone ask her to go easy on the injections before Donald Duck gets jealous.

Back at Kyle's the party continues. Does anyone else find the Fatburger tent out of place? I'm all for a good burger but it's such an odd product placement. Minus 10 because it looks like the ladies will push almost anything for a buck.

When the party is over the packing begins and it's off to Hawaii for Mauricio's birthday. 

Oh my God. Jiggy can't go. Will Ken and Lisa survive the trip without their beloved fur ball?

Brandi Glanville is a married woman again ... but may not be by the time you read this.

Temporary congratulations to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her friend, Mixed Martial Arts manager Darin Harvey. They got hitched New Year's Eve.

The 38-year-old model, whose ex-husband Eddie Cibrian famously left her for LeAnn Rimes, informed her Twitter followers of her new relationship status, writing:

"I'm married again - suuuuuuck it!"

Brandi Glanville and Darin Harvey

The newlyweds celebrated in typical fashion, by visiting the Spearmint Rhino strip club. "Honeymoons with strippers are the best!" Glanville tweeted.

Brandi Glanville, who shares two sons with Cibrian, added that Darin Harvey is her "best friend forever" and she's now an "official housewife, for reals."

"After some beer and strippers he is now my husband," she said. "No joke!"

No joke is right, but it won't last. Calling their union "a drunken BFF thing," Harvey told his Twitter followers that their booze-fueled elopement won't last.

"I had a crazy Vegas moment," he explained. "Getting annulled tomorrow."

Just when you might think a party can't get more dramatic than Brandi's Malibu blowout, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills go and prove you wrong.

This time it's not so much about the crazy catfights as it is about who gets "Uninvited" and we'll recap all the angst in THG's official, weekly +/- review!

It's Kyle's annual White Party and despite that she's had a year to plan the soiree, she leaves everything for the last couple of weeks.

As workmen are still setting things up two hours before the event, Kyle is lamenting to Mauricio that the chandeliers aren't lit. He simply shrugs and says they're working on it.

Taylor Armstrong Crying

Hey, the guy's doing all he can to look ruggedly handsome with his stubbled chin and white outfit and I'm not complaining. Plus 10 for looking handsome and remaining calm amidst the chaos. That particular talent will come in handy later on.

Pre-party, Camille calls Adrienne to let her know that Russell sent her an e-mail threatening to sue her for her "slanderous" comments at Lisa's tea party.

Camille shows her attorneys who tell her not to have any contact with Russell or Taylor. Plus 5 for sound advice but since they're all suppose to be at the same party tonight that's going to be a little awkward.

Thus starts a game of phone tag and no one can reach Taylor. Turns out she and Russell are flying back from Vegas just to make Kyle's party.

In the meantime the party's starting and the Housewives are having a group freak out with everyone worrying about Russell suing them. By the time Russell and Taylor arrive the entire tribe accosts them on the front walkway.

So are we all still in recovery mode after Taylor Armstrong's complete meltdown at Brandi Glanville's Malibu party last week? To see how The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pull themselves together, come along for THG's official +/- recap!

NOTE: You can win a FREE Kooba purse ($500 value), courtesy of THG and Bravo by answering these questions about last night's episode! Follow the link to enter!

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.

A Taylor Armstrong Image

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.

In the dangerous lives of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, when you head to a party, you need backup. That said, we break down last night in our +/- recap!

First, back to Pandora's wedding extravaganza. Wedding planner Kevin was slightly less annoying this week but that may be because we saw so little of him.

I will give the man a Plus 10. He puts together one heck of a lovely table, but does he really need a million dollar budget to pull that off? I don't think so.

Pandora and Lisa Vanderpump

From there we head over to Kyle's where she's throwing a party to celebrate both Cinco de Mayo and mother-in-law Estelle's new face. Only in Beverly Hills can the two be combined and no one thinks twice about it. 

Estelle looks good but it's hard to tell how much was done from the before and after pictures since the before has no makeup at all and the after was taken in full hair and makeup. Minus 8 because I would have enjoyed seeing a more accurate comparison.

Everyone's talking about Brandi's upcoming party but the porn star tutorial is out and a belly dancing lesson is in. Apparently Lisa hasn't gotten the memo.

She tells Ken she's not going because she doesn't need a lesson on giving BJ's. Ken asks her to come home and prove it. Lisa's response: "It's not your birthday, is it?" Plus 10 because somehow it's even funnier with the British accents.

What would you expect to see at a fashion show thrown by a woman who is launching her new line of shoes? Oh ... perhaps ... SHOES!? Well, apparently that's a little too straightforward for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

THG breaks down all the drama and confusion in its +/- recap below!

Adrienne Maloof Hair

For all of Lisa's protests about not wanting to go overboard on Pandora's wedding she does absolutely nothing to stop her wedding planner from doing just that.

Minus 8 because I wish she'd stop whining about it and accept the fact that nothing is too outlandish for her baby girl, including $15,000 wedding invitations. 

Smoking designer cocktails are next on the list. When they say that the overpriced beverage is your personal, unique signature drink for your event, I always wonder how many people they've sold that same line to for the same exact drink.

Plus 10 for the sucker born every minute and those waiting to make a buck off of them.

Pandora requests that her mother's friends don't have a battle in the middle of her wedding. Good luck with that. Minus 5 for naivete when her fiance thinks the ladies wouldn't start a fight at their wedding.  Has he watched this show before?

Looks like LeAnn Rimes and Brandi Glanville are going at it again ... on Twitter, obviously. What better way to instigate a feud than under the cover of social media!

Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife Brandi is upset this time because their two sons, Mason and Jake, spent Thanksgiving with Eddie and LeAnn Rimes, EVIL stopmom that she is.

Moreover, he's trying to get them for Christmas too. Brandi claims Eddie sent her a threatening e-mail about their custody pact. Then LeAnn Tweeted this photo:

LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian Twitpic

This story has nothing to do with Eddie Cibrian's sweet mustache. But discuss!

Brandi also says she thinks her custody fight is one of the reasons The Playboy Club got canceled and he's punishing her for it in return. Does that have merit?

Who's to say. But The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hot mess has a way with words, particularly online, and quickly fired off this Tweet to a friend about it:
