'RHOBH': Tears in Paris
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Kim Richards
Kim faces some accusations in the City of Love. Read More »

Alex McCord is back this week to weigh in on Monday's episode of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Plus, that's not all.

There's no way she can avoid giving her own take on Camille Grammer's exit from the series and Adrienne Maloof's firing.

All that in due time, first she has to go over the happenings in Paris. As a frequent traveler herself, Alex definitely has her opinions on how the housewives carried themselves in France. Were they tres chic, or tres touristy?

And how did the Brooklyn mom and wife feel about the way Lisa Vanderpump (and the producers) handle Kim Richards' "did she or didn't she fall off the wagon?" storyline. Hint: She isn't pleased.

Watch Alex's vlog for Monday's episode above.

Do you agree with her take on the housewives in Paris? How do you feel about Adrienne and Camille's departures? Sound off below.

    Super Celebuzz Alex! Your comments have the richest flavor of any reviewer or critic I have ever seen. Zinger of the week has got to win the Best Soundbite Prize...ie your "it's like golden handcuffs". Reality Truths go sooo good with morning coffee. Yum! And the quote from Hannibal-- a real Bullseye!

    Don't agree on your take with Kim. Kim has been showing signs of some type of chemical abuse. Even the editing , times where you can tell she is slurring and it actually looks like they did a voice over, my guess,? , she was probably slurring so bad no one could understand her, hence the voice over. This is a reality show so you can't blame the producers for showing someone who clearly is not in control. Viewers aren't stupid. Kim relapsed and instead of everyone tip toeing around it, she should be called on it. THAT is reality.

    Marissa should go, she is boring. Kim needs to go for her own health. Taylor should go, I just can stand to look at her scary face. I'm not sorry to see the end of Maloof the hoof. That leaves Lisa, Yolanda and Brandi who I LOVE. And Kyle who I can't stand. And I don't care either way about Camille. Alex love your comments you were a rare class act in the RHNY, they made a big mistake.

    Hi Cynthia! That fox dress is 100% crazy genius, isn't it? (Readers, if you see this and wonder what the heck we're talking about, it's here) http://sulia.com/channel/fashion/f/e360f811-5968-4aa8-ac38-1974620f9985/ I agree that I can't see lemons without thinking of Yolanda. Thanks for the nice words about my colorful scarf, it's Roberto Cavalli! The things is, they'll keep Brandi BECAUSE she picks fights and -- according to her at least -- doesn't have the budget to go around suing people. Double win for producers. Guess we'll have to see! I wonder whether Adrienne will keep blogging or just completely check out now.

    so grape juice in a wine glass ? i hope for her that's what it is i wish her well

    I hope Kim is doing great! I wouldn't put much stock in someone holding a wine glass. Often, whether it's a too-early-to-tell-people pregnancy, someone in recovery like Kim or someone who just doesn't feel like answering questions from tipsy people about why they aren't drinking booze, will have water in a wine glass or highball. I do it, too, sometimes...

    Karen, I wondered whether Brandi had a press pass for red carpet access. Originally I heard she was covering the Oscars for someone, but don't remember who. Load of people have access to the carpet beforehand without having tickets to the show.

    Yes, she's right -- it was season 3. For some reason I thought she had shown up at the end. I stand by Bravo wanting to make an example of Adrienne, though -- they can't let it become a habit.

    Jaqueline was a "no show" on season 3 reunion. She was at season 4

    I love your blouse ! Nice pops of pretty spring colors! Be fun to see you in the fox top next week! Brandi should go she did nothing but pick fights because her life is so boring and please let Yolanda go another dead weight I often forgot about her but can't look at a lemon without thinking of her. Kim and Kyle bring lots of drama I can't see them going. Taylor is ok . Those are the ones I remember so that don't say much for them .

    The last two episodes were shot in july ! i wonder how Kim is doing now, you can see her drink at dinner after cooking with the french chef and it looked like a glass of wine

    Get Rid of Brandi She is trashy and unfiltered. She will do anything to be Famous. Who did she have to sleep with to get the Academy Award ticket? Was it in Kyle's bathroom!! Get over it Brandi he don't want you!!! Move on and Get a Life! Lisa will turn on you too. I will not watch it anymore as long as Brandi is on the show.

    Kim is a mess and its ridiculous how everybody has to tiptoe around her and be careful what they say to a recovering addict. Just go away and recover in private this is not celeb rehab! Taylor I like cuz she's a bit crazy and unpredictable. she's also good fun and comes across much better on WWHL. I find yolanda a bit aloof and detached. Marisa made no impact whatsoever. Camille is redundant. Basically 3-4 of them can go and bring in a couple of exciting newbies to stir things up. Needs fresh storylines.

    Thnks for the recap. I wish Kim would stay, she's different and she was a BIG child star in my day so I like her.

    the only one that for sure to go should be Adrienne because she is so despised by everyone, I feel for her sanilty. Kim should go too, voluntarily to focus on getting clean which woud be nearly impossible with all the free booze in fancy glasses being offered everywhere you turn around. Kyle needs to stay because we need a villian and the viewers have made her almost as despised as Adrienne. both of these ladies do not deserve their abuse by the fans IMO. It is disgusting.

    Jacqueline was a complete no show at the S4 RHONJ reunion. She is still on the show for S5. I think Adrienne was fired because she also threatened legal action against the production company and the network in addition to Brandi.
