The infamous Season 1 meal snowballs into a catastrophic meltdown.

Every Thursday, celebrate #TBT with us as we open the vault to share photos of Bravolebrities before they were famous--or revisit memorable moments from our shows. This week, we dare to go back inside "The Dinner Party From Hell."

The old mainstay of minding one's manners was noticeably absent in this RHOBH Season 1 gem when Camille Grammar assembles the ladies for a dinner party at her Malibu home. What was initially dubbed a ‘girls night’ in an attempt to clear the air and smooth things over between Camille and Kyle Richards quickly erupts into an infectious quarrel.

Who's to blame for much of the drama? Camille's friend and medium, Allison Dubois, who displays a diabolical laugh while ominously puffing on an e-cigarette. Allison’s jabs eventually instigated underlying tensions between Kim Richards and Taylor Armstrong. “What is this, contagious?” Kyle asked.

This classic RHOBH showdown remains one of the strangest, most uncomfortable Housewives sit-downs of all time. "I feel like I'm in a haunted house at Disneyland," Kyle quipped as she walked away from the house. Or as Lisa Vanderpump eloquently put it, "It was a few clowns short of a circus!"

Hungry for more? The new season of RHOBH premieres November 4, at 8/7c. Watch the preview below.
