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?

What do you do when you've had a falling out with your friends and your marriage is crumbling around you? Throw an over the top birthday party for your five year old, of course. At least that's how The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cope. 

"The Great Divide" stretched from the disastrous Tea Party to a fifth birthday extravaganza and threw some expensive wedding planning in for good measure.

THG breaks it all down in our +/- recap below!

Camille Drops Knowledge

After Taylor insists the ladies be honest, Camille Grammer spews a little too much honesty for her comfort level. Camille drags the black and blue elephant into the light and talks about Russell abusing Taylor. 

Taylor is shocked and furious. Minus 5. Honey, you wanted honesty and you can't expect people to keep quiet forever. But what's Taylor's way of coping? She suddenly clings to Lisa.

Whining like a pathetic school girl, Taylor says Lisa makes her feel like she's in junior high clamoring for the popular girl's attention. Minus 8. I beg you Taylor, grow up.

Then suddenly all is forgiven. Taylor started off this party by trashing Lisa and now they're hugging and teary eyed. Everything's resolved and Taylor's smiling. Minus 7. I'm with Kyle on this one. Huh? What the hell just happened here?

No matter how you might feel about the Tea Party, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed us one you definitely didn't want an invite to last night.

THG breaks down all the polite insults and sarcastic jabs in our +/- recap below!

Before we get to the party, we pick up where we left off last week with Kyle meeting Kim's soon to be live in beau, Ken. Minus 5 for walking into the room like she's being led to the guillotine. Then she says hello to the dog before acknowledging Ken.

Even to a huge animal lover, that seemed a little odd.

Do Come In

Kyle asks about the ring on Ken's finger. Kim tells her that it's the promise ring she gave him and Kyle snarks that it's still a wedding band. Minus 8. If the couple is calling it a promise ring then it's a promise ring. 

I don't know if Ken is the right guy for Kim or not but Kyle's attitude won't help either way. She says she's taking a page from their mother's book and isn't going to acknowledge Ken because she doesn't like him. Minus 10. The only thing that's going to do is alienate her sister more and drive her closer into this guy's arms. Why can't Kyle see that?

Paul's birthday seems like a lovely dinner for him and Adrienne but Minus 3 for the tedious argument over what Adrienne should order. If that's the most interesting moment of this dinner couldn't we have skipped the whole thing.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ventured into a day of beauty and a night filled with spirits on this week's episode. Which of these women is afraid of ghosts?

We'll break it all down for you in THG's +/- review!

Paul offers all the ladies a special night of beauty at his plastic surgery clinic. Plus 10 for the generous offer but not everyone partakes of his skills. Lisa simply shows up to watch and gossip. Kim Richards actually attends.

Does anyone else notice this is one of the few events Kim has made the time for these days. Of course she arrives 20 minutes late. Hey, that's really pretty good for Kim so Plus 5

Kim Richards' Face

One of the scarier moments of the night is watching Kim drive on her way there. Talk about a distracted driver. She's lucky to make it there alive. But Dr. Paul has some ideas about that.

Before Paul adds some botox to Kim's face he gets a run down on her current medications. it's quite the laundry list: Trazadone, Topomax, and Lexipo.

That sounds like quite the cocktail. Paul talks to Kim about having her medications reevaluated and the importance of never mixing them with alcohol.

He also points out the drugged state she's walking around in, something Kim's not completely aware of herself. Plus 20 for being forthright and responsible as both a friend and a doctor. Hopefully Kim will take his advice.

Because it worked so well the first time...

While she may be perpetually fighting with her ex in court, Camille Grammer has moved on personally: she's dating some guy named Dimitri Charalambopoulos. How serious is this couple? The reality star at least says she's open to getting married again.

Camille Grammer as a Pirate

"He's great with my kids and he's good with me," Grammer told E! News at the Dream Halloween benefit for the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation over the weekend. "My son's really taken a liking to him and my daughter and him get along as well."

It's all about the parties on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week as the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses" is taken to a whole new level.

We break it all down in our +/- review as always:

But before we hit the Beverly Hills party circuit we head into surgery. You have to look your best in Beverly Hills. Is that why Kyle's mother-in-law Estella sees Paul for a facelift? 

Camille Toe

I have to admit I was almost as freaked out as Kyle. I can understand wanting to get a facelift but who wants to show off their face of the mummy after look to friends and family, nevermind on camera. Minus 7.  Yikes! That really looks painful.

Paul's silly phone calls to Mark Wahlberg didn't do much to boost my confidence in his surgical abilities. Minus 5. I know that surgeons probably do that sort of thing during long surgeries but honestly, I don't want to know.

From surgery we go to Taylor's awkward dinner party. I'm not sure which is worse. I thought they weren't going to show Russell this season. I guess I was wrong and it shocked me to see him sitting at the dinner table. Minus 20 for the change of plan.

The sharp contrast between Kyle and Mauricio's affectionate relationship and Taylor and Russell's tension is difficult to watch, especially when you know what's to come.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are back for a decadent day at the spa and THG is here, as always, to break down all the drama for you, +/- style!

But before we get massaged, tanned, and exfoliated, let's hit the kitchen with Adrienne and Lisa. Why? Heck if I know.

For some unknown reason Lisa is teaching Adrienne how to make a chicken dinner. But I ask again, why does Adrienne need to learn how to do this? She has a personal chef on site and she obviously hates to cook. Minus 5 because seriously, what is the point? She can't even find the salt and pepper in her own kitchen.

Adrienne Maloof Cooking

Then things get amusing. When Lisa tells her to wash the chicken she uses dish soap to scrub it down. Plus 11 because I can't stop laughing. It's just so stupid.

Add an additional Plus 7 for the looks poor Bernie is shooting them as these two defile his kitchen.

From there we move on to Lisa meeting up with Malcom at his 60,000 square foot palatial estate. Apparently we'll be seeing one heck of an engagement party here for Pandora next week. Any idea who will be using the commune bed? Minus 6 because I'm pretty sure I don't want to know how many people have been in that bed, either separately or all at one time.

On to the spa day. Is it just me or does Dana Wilkey seem like more of a ditz every time we see her? She simply parrots whatever anyone around her says. Her need to be accepted borders on scary.

Adrienne invites everyone to a spa day. Who knew that the spa is in Adrienne's home? Now I'm truly jealous. Plus 20. You'd have to drag me out of my own personal spa. I'll give Adrienne credit, she certainly knows how to spend her money.
