Brandi Glanville and Adrienne Maloof’s tiff spills over into the courtroom.

Last week, the ramifications from Kyle Richards dinner party from hell hung over the group like a dark shadow. Brandi still reeled from Kyle’s friend Faye Resnick’s attacks against her due to the diva’s now redacted comments towards Adrienne, and then husband Paul Nassif. Kyle felt terrible for how the dinner party turned out, and wanted to host an event to show new housewife Marisa Zanuck the playful side of the group. Good intentions don’t always pan out Kyle.

Kyle, along with Marisa, Brandi, Lisa Vanderpump, Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Yolanda Foster, and Kim Richards met up at a Moroccan restaurant to have a bit of fun. Brandi updated the group about Adrienne and Paul’s lawsuit against her. Brandi confided the couple wanted her to sign a paper, which stipulated she would refrain from discussing their family and private lives. An outraged Yolanda wondered to Lisa what Adrienne would get out of suing Brandi. Kyle chimed in and felt as though Adrienne’s lawsuit was a ploy to intimidate Brandi.

Meanwhile, Kyle’s husband Mauricio Umansky thought Brandi should call Adrienne to apologize and possibly make the litigation disappear. Brandi insisted she tried, but Adrienne’s lawyer replied and informed her to never contact his client again! Taylor believed Adrienne was being a bit two-faced, since she criticized her for threatening several lawsuits against Camille last season.

Maurico remarked Brandi made the outburst in order to cause chaos in the group, but Lisa’s husband Ken Todd refused to believe his theory. Ken maintained Brandi said it in a conversation they all were having and didn’t mean to cause any drama in the group. Mauricio badgered Brandi to call Adrienne, but Ken disagreed. Mauricio and Ken began a nasty argument, but things got real when Brandi interjected! Brandi erupted against Mauricio’s constant swipes against her, which resulted in the outspoken blonde telling him to stick his opinions where the sun don’t shine!
