The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 16 Recap: Lisa Rinna Tries to THROTTLE Kim Richards!

by at .

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 16 saw things get real (ugly) in Holland as tensions came to a head between Kim and Lisa Rinna.

That's putting it mildly after what can only be described as an epic throwdown.

What's the fallout after yet another insane week of drama in the 90210 and beyond? Come along as we recap what went down and where we're headed ...

Picking up where we left off last week, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 16 saw Yolanda Foster try to get the ladies to connect.

She probably didn't mean connect hands with other people's necks, but ...

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you know the tension has been building toward this moment pretty much all winter long.

Well, Tuesday, the whole thing finally boiled over and wow, what a mess.

After Yolanda shared the news about Bella Hadid's DUI, Lisa Rinna became emotional and said that her sister died of an overdose when she was younger.

"I have deep-rooted issues," she said of addiction, and apologized to Kim Richards for ever coming on too strong or getting into involved in Kim's life.

Kim wasn't having it, at all, telling Rinna she's "concerned" about her.

When fellow soap opera legend Eileen Davidson came to Rinna's defense, Kim snapped "Shut your f--king mouth, I've had enough of you, you beast!"

"Beast? How dare you!" Eileen shouted back, Days of Our Lives style, as Brandi Glanville finally got her wish of Davidson busting out her soap alter ego.

"Let's talk about the husband," Kim said to Rinna, implying that there is some secret involving Harry Hamlin and her home life that she doesn't want out?

We never found out what Kim meant. It didn't matter.

Before we could, the 51-year-old Rinna went visceral, lunging at her like a caged animal released into the wild and trying to grab her co-star by the neck.

"Don't touch my husband!" Lisa screamed at Kim, who clearly hit a nerve by bringing up the man Rinna worships. "Never go after my f--king husband!"

She threw her glass of wine, including the actual glass, before storming out and leaving the rest of the room (and living rooms across the U.S.) in shock.

The next day, Kim approached Lisa and told her she appreciated the concern but would've preferred if Rinna had handled the issue privately instead.

Unlike Kyle and Brandi, they buried the hatchet.

"In the midst of it, I could've killed her, but I'm backed off now," Lisa Rinna said of the wine-throwing melee. "Let her best friend Brandi help her out now."

Speaking of Kyle and Brandi, the latter freaked out again, possibly due to the weed they all smoked in Amsterdam but more likely because she's Brandi.

Glanville thinks they're all hypocrites, talking smack about her and then getting all offended if she dares bring up anything about anything else in the group.

Richards sees it differently. "The things we say about Brandi are things she's done," Kyle said, noting Brandi often says stuff that is designed to hurt.

No idea where Kyle got that idea ...
