‘Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ Recap: Kim Turns On The Waterworks In Paris

Bravo Fires Adrienne
Maloof isn't invited back for Season 4.
What happened to Paris being the city of love? It appears the ladies of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills forgot to partake in the French capital’s mantra. Last week, Brandi Glanville, Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster, Kim and Kyle Richards all packed their bags and headed for a little group getaway in the picturesque European city. Things seemed to be drama-free for the women, but we all know that wouldn’t last. They are on holiday after all.

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Monday’s episode: The Real Housewives of Paris Part Deux.

Kim’s sobriety seemed to bother Mrs. Vanderpump, as the elder Richards sister’s behavior baffled the group the moment she arrived. Lisa started to wonder if Kim lost her battle with alcohol once again after the two went for a day of shopping along with Lisa’s hubby Ken Todd. Kim’s constant rambling made the couple (and myself) do a double take, and question if Kim fell off the wagon.

Later, when Lisa scheduled the ladies to participate in a French cooking class, the women grew frantic when Kim was a no-show by the time they were ready to head out. Kyle and Yolanda went in search of Kim, while Lisa and Brandi wondered if it was another case of Kim and the Hawaiian vacation fiasco. You can’t fault people from wondering as such, since Kim herself admitted to drinking while she was in Hawaii. It turns out Kim just overslept, and off they went to class.

Just when the drama was over, Kim became extremely upset over Lisa wondering if she was back to drinking, since she was so late for class. Kim denied such a thing took place, since she was all about the road to recovery. In private, Kim cried to Kyle over how cruel Lisa’s words were, and didn’t think the restaurateur was being sincere in her concerns for her. Oh Kim, really? Whenever someone worries over your wellbeing, it turns out badly for the person. Just ask Brandi.

The next day, Kim was still put off by what Lisa said, and confided in Kyle and Yolanda. She felt as though the sassy Brit was just putting on a show, and didn’t give two hoots about her. Then, Kim insinuated Lisa was the main person who started the chaos in the group, and claimed she still was miffed at Kyle for siding with the missing in action Adrienne Maloof. Now, who’s stirring the pot, Kim? Aren’t Kyle and Lisa over the entire Adrienne/Brandi/Lisa drama? Why bring it up now?

As the ladies headed off to the Eiffel Tower, Kyle used that opportunity to rehash her beef with Lisa, and accuse her of replacing Kyle with Brandi as her new BFF. Lisa denied anything of the sort, but did admit Brandi has her back when the chips are down. Is this high school? Is Kyle going to fight Brandi for Lisa’s attention at 3PM behind the school? Grow up already!

Kyle still maintained Lisa was holding a grudge for not defending her against Adrienne. Lisa insisted she was over the entire ordeal, and did admit their friendship has changed. The two eventually kissed and made up for the umpteenth time, but we know how this bunch rolls. It’s only a matter of time before someone falls out of love with the other.

Buzz Moments

OMG!: The chef attempting to chop the head off of the duck for the women to prepare. That is one part of cooking I’m not interested in.

Thank you, TV gods.: No major fights in Paris! Happy these ladies didn’t leave their battle marks across the ocean.

Awk-ward: Kim calling out Kyle for not being there for her to Lisa and Ken. How uncomfortable was her little moment of honesty?

Hotness: Brandi and Yolanda’s morning run in Paris. They are dedicated to working out while on vacation, and we can see why. They’re in crazy shape!

Fab-u-lous: The view at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Can. Not. Wait.: Yolanda and Taylor Armstrong’s face-off. That has been brewing since the Dutch model arrived on the scene.
