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’re diving back into Dana Wilkey’s epic game night debacle.
Normally the friends of the Housewives are polite to each other, but that was never the case with Dana Wilkey. Albeit a little over the top, Dana was typically light hearted, fun and socially ambitious. Such was the scenario when she invited all of the ladies over to her house for a game night, during this memorable Season 2 moment.
Brandi Glanville first strode onto the Beverly Hills scene during Season 2 as one of Adrienne Maloof’s gal pals. Being the new girl on the block, Brandi felt like an outsider among the women. Her only true ally and friend at that point was Adrienne. However, when Adrienne regretfully declined Dana’s game night invitation, it was almost as if she poked the first hole into Brandi’s already sinking battle ship.
Ironically, the setting at Dana’s house slightly resembled a scene right out of the board game Clue. Food and furniture were sparse and there was an uncomfortable feeling in the air, almost as if no one knew what night held in store. While things were already rocky at best, as the actual games wore on, things continued to get more and more awkward. But, when Brandi called Kyle Richards a bitch, game night reached a point of no return.
You have to love Camille. Having felt the wrath of the Richards sisters all through Season 1, she quickly excused herself to the bathroom just as things seemed like they were going to boil over. However, when accusations over Brandi’s maternal skills began, not everyone made it out of the crossfire.
"Listen, we’re from Beverly Hills. We live our life, we do our thing," Dana awkwardly exclaimed after having narrowly escaped a brawl in her living room.
A lot has changed since the conclusion of Dana’s game night. For one, Brandi and the Richards sisters now appear to be thick as thieves. However, Brandi’s relationship with Adrienne and Lisa remains estranged.
