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.

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.

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.
