Never say Brandi is one to cave under peer pressure. The outspoken blonde still maintained the mysterious claims she lobbied against Adrienne Maloof and her then husband Paul Nassif. Kyle and Camille Grammer were blown away on how hostile Paul acted toward Brandi, but justified his actions. Brandi defamed his family they rationalized with Kyle’s sister Kim Richards, and he defended his family’s name against Brandi’s wild claims.

Kyle was also floored by Kim’s decision to drop the bombshell at her husband Mauricio Umansky’s upscale agency event in front of all his potential real estate clients. “Why do such a thing,” she remarked? Kim insisted Adrienne and Paul had a right to know what Brandi said about them, and not attend a party while everyone knew and gossiped behind their backs. Kyle ripped into her sister for being insensitive to Mauricio. She understood why Kim did it, but it was not the right time. An unrepentant Kim balked at Kyle’s attitude; Adrienne and Paul needed to know regardless of the venue. Was Kim right to tattle on Brandi at the party?

Later that week, Brandi headed over to Lisa Vanderpump’s place to fill her in on what occurred at Mauricio’s event. Lisa understood all too well how Adrienne can be, but wanted to find out what made Brandi lash out against Ms. Maloof? Brandi claimed Adrienne contacted a tabloid site and fabricated a story about her staying asleep until the afternoon, something Adrienne screamed at her during the party. Lisa sympathized with Brandi’s dilemma, and told her friend to rise above the nonsense. However, Brandi argued if things got worse, she will strike back.

Later, Kyle hosted a dinner party and viewers were introduced to new housewife Marisa Zanuck. Kyle, Camille, Lisa, and Taylor Armstrong wondered why Adrienne was absent at the get together. Could she still be upset over Brandi’s actions? Brandi informed the group she would have passed at the dinner if Adrienne wanted to come, in order not to cause conflict. Kyle grilled Brandi on why she had tremendous animosity towards Adrienne, since she always stuck up for the outspoken vixen.

As Brandi attempted to explain her position, Kyle’s friend Faye Resnick chimed in and berated Brandi for her behavior. Faye accused Brandi of seeking attention, and wound up creating chaos in the group. If she were truly sorry for what she’s done, Brandi would apologize and send Adrienne flowers as a gesture. Since when is she Emily Post? Brandi scoffed at Faye’s suggestion and calmly told her stay out of it, because it wasn’t her business.

Marisa added on and agreed with Brandi, but Faye wouldn’t hear of it. Faye attacked Brandi like a fat kid with cake, and kept throwing barbs about Brandi’s “bad behavior” and insincerity. A fed up Brandi left the party before things reached an already tumultuous level. With Faye crowing in the background, she would be next on Brandi’s target list for speaking the truth. Oh Faye, it isn’t always about you.

Buzz Moments

OMG!: Lisa denying Scheana the chance to talk to Brandi when she came over to Lisa’s place. Girl, ambushing Brandi is NOT the best thing to do!

Thank you, TV gods.: Camille letting Taylor know it wasn’t about her when she tried to compare their fight with Adrienne and Brandi’s. Taylor, it is someone else’s moment, honey.

Awk-ward: Kyle telling the dinner party how Kim didn’t invite her to her nephew’s birthday party in Las Vegas. How uncomfortable was her pity party?

Hotness: Brandi’s catsuit at Kyle’s party. Werk it!

Fab-u-lous: Yolanda Foster‘s workout regimen. Viewers got a little peek at how she keeps herself looking amazing and she does it the ol’ fashioned way.

Can. Not. Wait.: Brandi and Scheana’s showdown looks smoking hot.
