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.

It's been a tough few months for Taylor Armstrong, as the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star has dealt with the suicide of her husband and then the multiple ways in which she could exploit the tragedy through interviews and photo releases.

But Armstrong is doing better these days, she tells Life & Style, saying simply: "I've been taking care of myself the best I can."

What has helped? Spending time with women foundations such as the 1736 Family Crisis Center.

"I'm looking into projects that can help women," Armstrong tells Life & Style. "The more I can help heal others, the more I heal myself. It gives me strength."

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.

Taylor Armstrong will gladly go into detail about her late husband allegedly beating her, but the reality star only has one sentence to say about rumors that she's getting it on with Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren.

"I am NOT dating anyone from anywhere! Stop the rumors! I am trying to heal with my daughter," Armstrong Tweeted yesterday.

We are very sorry, Taylor. When reporting you might be with Nordgren, we should have considered your five-year old child. By the way: when is your next primetime interview scheduled where you slam the heck out of your five-year old child's father?

Both Nordgren and Armstrong admit they attended a ball together in Dallas, but merely as friends.

Taylor, meanwhile, recently said she may have "subconsciously" signed up for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because she was getting beaten and this allowed her "problems to be in the public eye to some extent... it was my saving grace."

Dina Lohan, take note: THIS is how you exploit a family tragedy for personal gain.

Taylor Armstrong sure knows how to pick her men.

The Real Housewife of Beverly Hills - who was married to an abusive jerk, in case she hasn't made that clear in multiple interviews since the death of Russell Armstrong - is reportedly attached to Matt Nordgren, a player on Bravo's Most Eligible Dallas.

But a report in Star Magazine issues a warning to Taylor: this guy sort of sucks, too.

In 2003, court documents show that Nordgren was arrested for causing nearly $1,000 worth of damages to a classmate's car at the University of Texas. He allegedly kicked the vehicle and screamed at the passenger, who dialed 911, but later dropped all charges.

Moreover, a source describes Nordgren as "two-faced" to the tabloid, saying Taylor ought to be careful because "Matt is not who he says he is."

Then, of course, there's the most damaging case yet against this 29-year old Texan: the guy once slurped up Jake Pavelka's sloppy seconds and dated Vienna Girardi. Seriously, Taylor, we better not catch you crying your eyes out in any future sit-downs. You've been sufficiently warned this time.

There's just something so appealing about a woman who continually trashes the late father of her five-year old child. Isn't that right, Matt Nordgren?

Insiders tell Radar Online that this star of the alleged Bravo series Most Eligible Dallas accompanied Armstrong to a ball in Dallas last week and was "very affectionate" with her

  • Taylor Armstrong Laughing
  • Matt Nordgren Picture

"Matt is a Southern gentleman, and has impeccable manners," a source says. "Taylor isn't used to being treated so well by a man. It's truly amazing that she has been able to find someone that she can trust, and that she isn't afraid of."

Taylor and Matt are reportedly taking their relationship slowly, although this mole claims Armstrong is telling pals "she is in love."

We're just impressed she has time to date in between all the interviews she's giving that detail just how terrible of a man Russell Armstrong was before he committed suicide in August. Seriously, she's a keeper, Matt.

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."

Sometimes, game night just won't end. Well, it has to eventually, but it sure feels like it goes on forever on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Either way, THG breaks it all down in our weekly +/- review!

Can someone please get Kyle to stop bringing up the four year old peeing at the party. Yes, Brandi could have handled it better but get over it. The kid's four years old. Things happen. Minus 5 for not being able to let it go.

Pissed Off Brandi

Brandi doesn't take the insult to her parenting skills well, and to be honest, who would? But as the fight escalates so does Brandi's cursing and then she accuses Kim of being on crystal meth. Minus 10 for taking it there.

Although it's obvious Kim has issues and they could be narcotics related, Brandi has no proof other than Kim's odd behavior and several trips to the bathroom. That's a serious accusation against a woman she just met.

Plus 12 to skinny little Taylor who jumps into the fray to stop the brawl. That took some guts. But Minus 10 to Dana who lost control of her own party and didn't seem to care. In fact she seemed to egg it on.

What is up with Dana anyway? Is the woman really that insecure. She'd obviously do or say anything to try and fit in with this crowd. That may make her nuttiest of all.

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.
