'RHOBH' Divorce Settled
Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif have settled their divorce.
Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump’s feud continues as Camille Grammer returns on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Last week Adrienne got the shaft from Lisa as the latter invited all of the other housewives to attend her restaurant Villa Blanca’s 3rd anniversary party. Adrienne smarted from Lisa’s cold shoulder but it didn’t stop Adrienne from notifying her former friend of the slight… by sending a huge and strange flower arrangement congratulating Lisa on her success.

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Monday’s episode, “The Higher the Heel, the Closer to God.”

Kyle Richards asked if Adrienne would talk to Lisa in order to fix the rift between the two. Adrienne felt Lisa was being immature. Kyle countered Lisa was a bit sensitive and Adrienne shouldn’t expect the feisty Brit to apologize. Adrienne remarked if Lisa wanted a relationship with her, she needed to apologize. Don’t hold your breath, Adrienne.

As Adrienne and Kyle’s husbands prepared to take part in Taylor Armstrong’s charity event in Sacramento, Dr. Paul Nassif grilled Mauricio Umanskyand Taylor about Lisa’s party. The good doctor admitted both Lisa and Adrienne were at fault and needed to work things out. Mauricio agreed.

Kyle was preparing for her daughter’s birthday party when Lisa arrived with hubby Ken Todd. Lisa told her gal pal she couldn’t stick around Portia’s party for long, since she had a previous engagement. Kyle wondered if Lisa would at least stay long enough to make amends with Adrienne. Lisa smashed that fantasy, insisting she had to keep her previous engagement.

When Kyle asked if Lisa would consider coming to a dinner party to hash things out with Adrienne, she declined. Apparently, Kyle was much more interested in her friends patching things up than they were!

Brandi Glanvillearrived and confided in Kyle how nervous she was to be there, given the animosity Taylor still had toward her, which stemmed from last season’s reunion special. Brandi told Kyle she may leave just to avoid any potential drama, but Kyle refused her offer.

Camille  arrived (welcome back girl!) at the festivities, and quickly caught up on all the drama, courtesy of Kyle. Camille couldn’t understand why former neighbors Lisa and Adrienne couldn’t get it together. She and Kyle had after all.

While Kyle and Camille’s backs were turned, Brandi beat a hasty exit, minutes before Kim Richards and Adrienne arrived. Paul asked if Lisa would be in attendance, prompting Kyle to relay Lisa’s excuse for leaving early.

Adrienne didn’t believe her excuse and commented everyone needed to stop protecting Lisa. The two of them needed to come together and squash their beef, Adrienne remarked. Whether or not that will happen remains to be seen.

Buzz Moments

OMG!: Paul trying on women’s shoes with Adrienne for Taylor’s charity event — such a bittersweet moment featuring the two.

Thank you, TV gods.: Kyle refusing to gossip about Brandi to Adrienne and Kim when Taylor tried to pressure her. Taylor needs to stop stirring the pot.

Awk-ward: Housewife friend Dana Wilkey asking Kim if she’s still sleeping with her ex-boyfriend. Leave it to Dana to make a situation totally uncomfortable.

Hotness: Yolanda Foster’s daughter, Gigi. The girl definitely inherited her mother’s genes and business savvy to create a job in modeling.

Fab-u-lous: Portia’s birthday party. What a bash for a 4-year-old kid, over the top and amazing!

Can. Not. Wait.: Excited to see Lisa and Adrienne go out for drinks to work things out and Taylor being put in her place by Yolanda.
