After a fairly dark season with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ,we're finally headed towards the light for the finale and thanks to Pandora, it's not white but pink.

Let's break down the event of the season in THG's +/- review!!

But before we attend the wedding, let's hit the bathroom. I have to laugh at Adrienne's horror when Paul invites her in to help with his enema. Plus 10 for her reaction.

I don't know what Paul's thinking but that's so not happening.

Adrienne Maloof, Paul Nassif

Other than airing an entertaining public service announcement on getting a colonoscopy, is this segment really necessary? Minus 8 because I don't think anyone needs to watch several minutes of Paul passing air. Maybe we can all get that IV sedation to go.

Over at Kyle's, she and Mauricio must be discussing which dress will look the least flattering on her because I can't stand any of her choices, least of all the one he picked out. Minus 9. For a woman with money Kyle could use better taste in clothes.

Camille doesn't have that problem. She just looks better and better this season. Life without Kelsey obviously agrees with her because she's rockin' that dress. Plus 10.

Back at wedding central, Lisa's starting to freak out a little because Kevin Lee isn't there. His assistant Anie looks quite capable but Kevin failed to mention he'd be manning another event up until a couple of hours before Pandora's wedding. Not cool. Minus 15.

But everything moves right along and I almost expected twin makeup artists but triplets? Plus 7. Only in Beverly Hills.

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.

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?

Taylor Armstrong wants to make it as clear as possible: her late husband beat her often and may have murdered her.

Since the August suicide of Russell Armstrong, this horrific Real Housewife has gone out of her way to paint a negative picture of her daughter's father, giving multiple interviews that detailed Russell's abuse.

A Terrible Person

Taylor Armstrong: Open mouth. Insert foot. Repeat.

The latest despicable example? A chat with KTLA-TV in which Taylor hypothesizes that Russell may have killed if her not for the higher power above. No, not God. Bravo television.

"I was in an abusive relationship for six years," Taylor said. "If the cameras were not in my life, I might not be sitting here today. A lot of domestic violence situations end in murder-suicide, versus just suicide. I have my daughter with me today, and by the grace of God and, perhaps, reality TV, I'm sitting here and so is she."

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.
