It was also an hour of near actual stabbing, as Lisa Vanderpump ended up with a sword in her hands.

Elsewhere during the latest installment of this Bravo franchise, Kyle and Joyce planned a trip to Puerto Rico, while tension grew between between Brandi and Lisa at at Yolanda's farewell party for Gigi.

Last night on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4 Episode 16, we learned that these ladies will stop at nothing when it comes to stirring up drama.

Okay, that's basically true of every episode, but still. It was just nuts!

You can watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online for the full effect, but long and short of it? Lisa Vanderpump got called out on her meddling. HARD.

Brandi Glanville, Kyle and Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster all began to jump aboard the TAKE DOWN LISA bandwagon, leading to an epic confrontation.

The final straw? Lisa's behavior at a party for Yolanda's daughter Gigi.

Kyle had Brandi pass on a ring to Carlton Gebbia to complete a necklace she'd given her before their falling out, and Lisa just couldn't let that one go.

Lisa whispered "but the necklace is blue, isn't it?" And it was ON then.

Scheana Marie just threw some SHADE on Brandi Glanville, telling The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills to stay away from her wedding to Michael Shay.

“[Brandi] is absolutely not invited. And if she tries to crash it, I will have security escort her to the street and throw her out,” the Vanderpump Rules star said.

Yes ... she's beefing up security to make sure Brandi steps off.

As you may recall, Scheana got off to a bad start with Glanville after she admitted banging Eddie Cibrian, Brandi's then-husband, a few years ago.

That's not the only Bravo star she has issues with, either.

Scheana recently rescinded her offer to Stassi Schroeder to be a bridesmaid, saying her Vanderpump Rules co-star "doesn’t deserve my friendship."

Brandi Glanville wants to set the record straight about a negative comment she allegedly made regarding frenemy co-star Lisa Vanderpump's finances.

First of all, the blonde beauty says, didn't storm off set during the taping of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special, which was reported.

"No one stormed off. There were tears, there was yelling. But no one stormed off. I sat on a couch for 12 hours. I didn't go anywhere," she tells E! News.

But more importantly, the bankruptcy thing.

Glanville alleged on a recent podcast that Lisa Vanderpump and hubby Ken had lived in Calabasas, Calif., and filed for bankruptcy. Now she says no.

"The one thing I do want to clear up though is that I don't know if Lisa and Ken lived in Calabasas and filed for bankruptcy," Brandi Glanville explains.

"Kyle Richards told me, I looked it up on this site where you pay $9.99 it said yes, they lived off Mulholland drive in Calabasas. How do I know if they filed for bankruptcy?"

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4 Episode 15 showed us a more tender side of Carlton. Or at least that was what she tried to convey it seemed.

She may be a Wiccan sex fiend who flips the f--k out at anyone and anything, but she is just crushed, hurt, beside herself that Kyle called her an anti-Semite.

Carlton tries to argue that she lived in South Africa once and therefore loves all of humanity. You know, because it's ethnically, culturally diverse there.

Maybe the editing isn't doing her justice, but you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to witness this insane rambling for yourself.

In any case, Carlton uninvited Kyle from her business party, and later on, Lisa failed to negotiate a peace treaty a la Rick Ross and Young Jeezy.

It didn't work out, and that wasn't even the biggest feud of the episode. That belongs to Brandi Glanville and Lisa, who she begins to be suspicious of.

Brandi broaches the topic - that Lisa is a meddler who manipulates her - with Kim, and they both agree they that they love Lisa, but she's also scary.

Kyle, the next person Bravo lined up to hear Brandi's confessions, just shrugs if off. Clearly she doesn't want to be on Lisa's bad side. So scary!

Brandi Glanville is at it again, slamming Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes in her latest book. You won't believe what she had to say this time, either.

In Drinking and Dating: P.S. Social Media Is Ruining Romance, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills diva dives right into dishing about her ex.

Lambasting her “husband’s torrid affairs with cocktail waitresses” and “one cunt-ry music singer,” Brandi Glanville says some wounds won't heal.

Especially if you keep rehashing them publicly to make money ... just sayin'.

“It’s been five years now since I discovered my ex-husband was sleeping with about half of the women in Hollywood," she writes, and clearly the issue still stings.

“Sometimes it feels like just yesterday that my ex and my baby boys were snuggling on the couch with me in our gorgeous Calabasas home."

“Other times, it feels like it was all a crazy dream. But I have three permanent reminders of my marriage that I live with every day, [my sons] Mason, Jake, and HPV.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4 Episode 14 saw Kyle and Lisa throw a party for their husbands, Mauricio and Ken, who celebrated birthdays.

Naturally, this served as an excuse to bring the whole cast together and drum up tensions old (Brandi Glanville and everyone) and new (Kyle and Carlton).

It's a tried and true formula for Bravo. Go with what works.

Before the big event, Carlton and Joyce meet for lunch. As respectfully as she can, Joyce asks Carlton point blank if she cast a spell on her husband.

Carlton admits that she might have crossed the line, but assures Joyce that once she had children, she gave up practicing of the dark arts permanently.

What a relief.

Moreover, Carlton is offended that Joyce would even half-believe that Carlton would hurt her kids willingly, and insists that would never happen.

Monday's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4 Episode 13 showed us that Carlton Gebbia is actually a witch. Like, she is literally a Wiccan worshipper.

The British babe has made the most of her screen time thus far on the Bravo show, and certainly did so again last night, but not the way you might expect.

Carlton Gebbia's pool party, while sexy, was light on camera-ready OMG moments compared to the stuff happening later over at Yolanda Foster's house.

There, Carlton claimed she "sensed" Kyle Richards was talking about her behind her back. Because she has a means of spiritually sensing these things.

Just the day before, Gebbia and Richards appeared to be on better terms at the party, with Kyle making a nice gesture. Of course, Carlton still loathes her.

Kyle's gift of jewelry was a nice peace offering, but it boils down to her "belief system" and Richards' questioning of it. Sincere or not, it rubs her wrong.

Brandi Glanville might be too much for the Bravo show that made her famous, according to chatter from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills insiders.

She’s one of the most controversial cast members on the hit show, and producers are contemplating giving her the axe after this season, reports say.

The program is potentially under a major shakeup next year, with honchos also looking to get rid of Kim Richards, whose loyal sister Kyle may follow suit.

“Brandi is fully aware what a big mouth she has and doesn’t really censor anything she says, and doesn’t want to,” an insider told Radar Online.

But, more significantly, "she’s also aware that it might be too much for Bravo and it looks like her fan base might be falling, which has her worried.”

Live by the mouth, die by the mouth? It appears that way for BG.
