The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 17 Recap: Who Got Slapped!?

by at .

Tuesday night on Bravo, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 17 picked up in the aftermath of Lisa Rinna and Kim Richards' epic throwdown.

Rather than simmering down, group tensions escalated as unresolved issues came to a head on a riverboat cruise and led to someone getting slapped.

Yes, someone got tagged once again on this show, and sort of hard.

These women simply cannot keep it together or go a week without some sort of altercation. One in particular, and you can probably guess who ...

When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 17 got underway, the girls rehashed previous events, as they are inclined to do.

Eileen Davidson and Brandi Glanville got into it. Kyle Richards and Brandi got into it. Kim got into it. As did Lisa Rinna. Yolanda Foster tried to steer clear.

Standard stuff. But, in a rare attempt at maturity and in an attempt to move on, the ladies then went around the table to say nice things about each other!

Kim and Kyle Richards were so stunned by this turn of events. that they actually cried. Brandi Glanville even awkwardly sat through some compliments.

It was magical. Until somebody referenced The Love Boat (they were on a canal boat) and Brandi decided she wanted to reenact some classic scenes.

That meant full-on begging Lisa Vanderpump to kiss her and slap her, which Lisa was reluctant to do, so Brandi got it going with a firm one to the face.

Really pretty amazing how far she'll go to get attention and headlines.

Lisa was pretty shocked that she just got whacked when she clearly didn't want to be, and playful as it was (in Brandi's mind), it looked like it hurt.

"No, that's wrong," Lisa snapped after being slapped. "Stop it right now."

"Do it to me," Brandi said cheerily, as though this were totally normal.

"It's like throwing a glass of wine in someone's face," Lisa responded.

Ah yes. When Brandi Glanville threw wine at Eileen Davidson ... it feels like it was just yesterday. And "It just always goes too far," Lisa lamented.

The line of the night goes to Yolanda who heard about all this drama and asked, "What do you mean you slapped Lisa Vanderpump in the face?"

We're wondering the same thing, and we're sure we're not alone.

As always, you can watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to watch the theatrics, fights, slaps and wine throwing from start to finish.
