The games began, and quickly got nasty, as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills assembled for an uber-competitive Game Night at Dana Wilkey's this week.

THG breaks it down, +/- recap style!

Alliances are drawn and things spiral out of control at Dana's Game Night party and it's a disaster almost from the beginning. First off, it's boring as all get out because no one will talk to one another. Kyle and Brandi are the first guests to arrive.

Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey

Kyle is still fixated on Brandi's use of the c-word last week at the barbecue and the fact that her four year old peed on the grass. Minus 5 Kyle. Get over it. It's not like the woman ran over your dog. You can make polite small talk with her at a party.

Kim stumbles in with a tear stained face. Kyle drags her off to the bathroom to clean her up and Kim is insulting the cleanliness of the host's bathroom rather loudly. Minus 7 for not being able to control herself.

Then Brandi's one ally, Adrienne, bails at the last minute leaving Brandi to deal with the mean girls all on her own. Brandi Glanville is far from perfect but at least she's willing to admit that the joke she made about Dana's husband last week was inappropriate.

Plus 8 for owning up to it. If only she would have apologized to Dana it may have won her some points with the host.

We meet another real housewife this week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and needless to say, Dana Wilkey makes a strong impression.

THG breaks down all the action in its +/- recap!

Dana hit the scene showing off all of her assets. Those include serious cleavage, a tiara, and $25,000 sunglasses. The funny part? She can't stop telling people she spent $25,000 on her sunglasses. What is she compensating for?

Dana Wilkey, Sunglasses

Does Dana Wilkey want to prove to everyone that she has money? Doesn't she realize that for as many people as she is impressing, just as many are looking down their noses for talking about money or simply laughing at her for being ridiculous enough to spend that kind of money on a pair of sunglasses. Minus 10.

It gets even more fun when Dana tells Kyle and Taylor all about her super baby. Apparently her 18-month-old reads, counts, models, and speaks Thai. Plus 8 to Kyle for both playing along and poking fun at Dana's inane assertions. I get the feeling that Dana is the insecure type.

In other housewife news, Lisa gets a gig with CNN as a commentator on the Royal Wedding. Plus 5 for Taylor who lists Lisa's qualifications for the job: She's married and British. Yup. That's about it.  It's nice to see Taylor finding her sense of humor for a change. There's only so much crying I can take.

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.

This week, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finished up their trip to Beaver Creek and we take a look at who reached new high or low points in our +/- recap!

Taylor was on a downward spiral. This girl was just a mess. Her moods have shifted from miserable to distraught to kind of scary. But the ladies earned a Plus 7 for trying to help, even though they weren't all that successful at it.

Taylor Armstrong Cries

Kim took on the mothering role when she woke up to find a half naked, crying Taylor in her bed. I doubt she was expecting that. Having been divorced, Kim tries her best to console Taylor on her troubled marriage. Plus 8 for making the effort to point out that everyone has problems and Taylor's not as alone as she feels.

Camille, however seemed content to hide in her room and let the drama play out without her. Honestly, I couldn't say I blamed her. I might hide too but she was the host. Minus 5 because she really should have checked on her guest.

Taylor's breakdown continued as she ended up crying in a closet and then became completely paranoid over a missing makeup bag. Heaven forbid dinner with the ladies not be in full makeup.

This week, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills headed out on a lovely ski vacation in the Rocky Mountain State. What could possibly go wrong in that scenario?

Let's find out in THG's +/- recap!

Before they leave we get a quick tour of Kyle's dream home. She says she drove past it for years and would stop just to send out her good energy, hoping that this house would someday be hers. Well, here's Plus 5 for good energy. It looks like a lovely home. 

The Real Housewives of Colorado

The ladies head out for a Colorado ski adventure at Camille's place. How dangerous could it be? They could use a whole other limo for all of their luggage. Ladies, it's a weekend. You're not moving there. Minus 3.

This trip is a last hurrah for Camille who has to sell the ski chalet per her divorce agreement. It is a shame. The place is gorgeous but according to Lisa, Camille is in dire straits. She'll be down to only a couple of houses before long. Dear me. Minus 10. Heaven forbid someone be down to their last two mansions. How will she survive?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kicked off season two with quite a predicament on its hands, but in true reality TV fashion, it got over it quickly.

Let's recap the absurdity of it all in THG's +/- review ...

Russell Armstrong, wife of Housewife Taylor, committed suicide earlier this summer amid controversy of abuse allegations, a divorce, and financial troubles.

There was talk of postponing the season. There was talk of a memorial special. Instead we got a five-minute opener of the cast talking about how sad, angry, or guilty they felt and then ... we moved on. 

So we start with Minus 25. I'm not saying they had to dwell on it but a man's death seemed to deserve more than five minutes. Maybe it's just me.

But, moving on… If Lisa asked her little dog if it had to go wee wee one more time I thought I might be ill. Minus 5. And what's with the big push to get her daughter married off. She's only 24 for goodness sake. Minus another 5.

To Jason's credit he did the cute, old fashioned thing and asked her dad for permission. Plus 3 for going traditional.

Details regarding the life and recent death of Russell Armstrong continue to pour forth, with the latest report painting this reality star in a disturbingly negative light.

According to a TMZ insider, just prior to filming on season two of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Russell struck Taylor Armstrong so hard that he fractured her cheek bones and sent her to the hospital. The injuries, and subsequent photos, were "horrific," this source states.

Taylor Armstrong, Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer are all smiles in this photo. But a new report sheds light on their private pain.

Unsure how to handle the situation - would Bravo fire her for appearing uncooperative if she didn't show up for filming? - Taylor reportedly confided in Camille Grammer and Kyle Richards. She then told Russell about this conversation with her castmates.

The Bravo mole says he reacted by emailing Camille a "very threatening" message that contained "the rantings of a lunatic."

Taylor's bruises and breaks, meanwhile, required weeks to heal, delaying production on the series. Now, the actual premiere has been pushed back as the network wonders what to do about Russell's suicide.

They're all coming back.

Following months of casting rumors regarding The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Will Camille Grammer leave due to her ongoing custody battle?

Moreover, the show is introducing two new spoiled stars, both billed as friends of the cast: welcome, Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey!

Both appear in the following season two promo, which also highlights the main storylines coming our way in September: Taylor Armstrong's divorce, Camille's battle with Kelsey Grammer, Kim and Kyle working on their relationship... and many other developments that are in no way, shape or form scripted.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are coming down hard on Kelsey Grammer.

With Camille locked in a custody battle with her ex - rumors claim Kelsey actually wants to split his kids up - Adrienne Maloof, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards have all come to their cast member's defense. By bashing the heck out of the former sitcom star.

"She might be [dating again] after this weekend," Maloof told E! News on Sunday at the Critics' Choice Television Awards. "She's presenting with me at the NHL Awards. I thought, 'Oh, hot hockey players!'"

Camille Grammer has terrible news for her young kids and for fans of irresponsible parenting: neither Mason, 9, nor Jude, 6, will appear on the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

"My ex wouldn't sign the release, so you are not going to see my children," Camille told E! News. "Mason really wanted to be a part of the show."

The little guy probably wants ice cream for dinner every night two, you nitwit. It's your job to make decisions in his best interest.

Camille and Kelsey Grammer are in the middle of an ugly custody battle. How is the former holding up?

"I've lost 16 pounds since the beginning," she says. "It's going through the stress of Kelsey leaving and then shooting a reality show at the same time. So it's a combo."

Yeah, that's tough. Too bad there's nothing she can do about the reality show part.
