Game Ovah

Episode 7:'s Associate Editor reflects on the end of Game Night and Camille's charity luncheon.

Welcome back to Game Night, dear friends. We return to the living room of Dana's abode and to discussing parenting techniques, drug use, and trailer parks. Let's just dive right in. The rest of the fight pretty much speaks for itself.

Thank God for Taylor, who once again, is the a great mediator. Woman knows when "ENOUGH" is "ENOUGH" and busts up the finger-pointing and the meth mentions to prevent whatever bar room brawl may have unfolded. Frankly, I have no desire to see things come to fisticuffs with this group – particularly when it's two-on-one (though Brandi has height on her side).

At that point, Brandi decides she's going to hobble home, but unfortunately she can't find her crutches. Why is that? Oh right, because Kim hid them. Did anyone else feel like they were watching an episode of Blue's Clues? I was so nervous about where the crutches would turn up. Would they be in the bathroom? Under the pool table? Hidden behind Kim's McCafe? Nope, in the end they were just behind Brandi's chair. Always the last place you look, dear.

Meanwhile, Dana attempts to mend fences with the Richards sisters by offering a "healthy, safe vacay." Have you seen the trips these ladies take Dana? That's rarely the case. Also her tête-à-tête with Kyle about all of them being "in it" together was a true delight. Oh Dana, relax a bit. Let people appreciate you for the giant domino-making woman you are.

As the gang peers out the window waiting for Brandi to pull away, Kim drops a dig at Camille that really made me laugh.

"That was really uncomfortable guys. That was too much," Camille says.

"Now you know what you put us through last year," Kim retorts.

Zing! Kim Richards doesn’t miss a beat! And kudos to Camille for just tossing her side ponytail back and laughing it off. What a champ.

Moving on to the rest of the episode. . .

The Play-by-Play
Next we see Adrienne taking the stroll to the Vanderpump compound to get the full play-by-play from Kyle. There's always something magical about seeing Adrienne trot over to Vanderpump manor, and things didn't get any less delightful once she arrived.

If you can't take war time strategies form Winston Churchill, you might as well take them from Lisa: "We know Kim's had her issues, but that is a low blow. Wouldn't take it. Counterattack completely well-deserved. What a bitch." Sounds like a plan, awaiting further marching orders from General Vanderpump.

The Freshmaker
God bless Kim Richards. Isn't her breath fresh either way -- whether she using breath spray or air freshener? Who cares if it’s more of a sanitized room odor than minty, it’s better than nothing. Deal with it, world.

Unfortunately no amount of spray could freshen up the stale angst of her and Kyle's situation (see what I did there?). As the siblings head out on a road trip, we finally find out just exactly what was meant by the house stealing comment in Season 1. It seems when their mother died, her Palm Desert house was passed to the sisters, and Kim isn't pleased with the way things shook out. Not exactly someone sneaking off with a house in the dark of the night, but stealing in Kim's mind all the same.

Then when the sisters head to lunch, the nitpicking begins. Kim wants to move, but Kyle doesn't particularly approve, and we see that not all is water under the stolen house.

Later, when Kim and Adrienne take a little stroll, Kim opens up about the situation. Even if the sisters can unite against a one-legged enemy, it seems they still have a lot of work to do. Frankly, I'd like Adrienne to keep Kim walking as long as it takes to remedy the situation. Make the block a couple of times, until you find a way to heal that past. You’re both wearing jackets, you can keep trotting until nightfall or far after if that's what it takes.

A tisket, a tasket, a tense charity Easter Basket
The ladies reunite at Camille's charity luncheon and while Camille's is stressing over her speech and Dana is procuring a new fur, Brandi and Kyle are busy ignoring each other.

Tables at those charity events are pretty big, but they're not that big. Poor Lisa attempts to break the ice, but can't find a way except to ask Brandi where she lives. Unfortunately this wasn't the dazzling conversation starter she had hoped and the rest of the luncheon is spent in stony silence, a trend that doesn't seem to continue into next week, when people get very vocal at spa day. . .

Until then, what would you have used as an icebreaker at the luncheon? Asking Brandi about her son's bathroom habits? More discussion of Winston Churchill? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

Brandi: Kyle Wants to Help When There's an Audience

Brandi explains why she was trying to get Kim out of Eileen's house.

Newsflash: I'M NOT SOBER, and fantasies are just that--fantasies. I've just about HAD IT with these judgmental women that pretend to be perfect and think they do no wrong. Spa day was fine other than the uncomfortable wine tasting, but I tried to tell some jokes to loosen the mood.

Poker night...Kyle called me and asked me to bring champagne in the car for the ride over to poker night at Eileen's, and we shared one bottle. I generally drink wine, not champagne, and was feeling good. As all of my friends have pointed out to me, it's the third glass that usually takes me to the dark side. Kyle had as much to drink as I did, but it didn't seem to affect her. I guess she must have a really HIGH tolerence. Eileen's house is beautiful on the outside--and it may be a dick thing to say--but creepy on the inside in my opinion. I switched over to white wine, and while there were a few appetizers (one made with kids' frozen mini pancakes and oddly colored salmon), there really wasn't much to eat, and it was dinner time after all.

We sit to learn poker. I'm drunk and hungry, and all these smart women act like it's rocket science. It was ridiculous. Sitting next to Kim, even in my intoxicated state, I see that she isn't herself. I tried to pretend like all was fine but knew that I needed to get her out of there. Kim had been sick for weeks coughing really violently whenever I was around her, and I asked her to go to the doctor, but she said it was just bronchitis. Everyone is noticing Kim isn't herself, and Kyle and Kim go off to the restroom. As Kim came out, she wanted Kyle to leave her alone and to leave. I went over to try and help Kim get the heck out of there. Kim wanted to say goodbye before leaving for some reason, so we went in the kitchen, and I grabbed a slice of pizza, because I was starving. I try to get Kim out of Eileen's house, because it's clear to me that Kyle wants to have this bad situation play out in front of the other ladies. I don't want that to happen, so I try to get Kim to leave. 

If Kyle was so worried and embarrassed about Kim's behavior, then why wouldn't she just let me get Kim home and out of this embarrassing situation? 

Brandi Glanville

Kyle only wants to "help" Kim when Kyle has an audience. In that moment of time, Kim was not in the right state of mind or condition to have any kind of conversation or altercation, yet Kyle persisted, even going as far as getting physical and grabbing me twice, as well as breaking my skin open to keep me from removing Kim from this bad situation. So ask yourself this question: If Kyle was so worried and embarrassed about Kim's behavior, then why wouldn't she just let me get Kim home and out of this embarrassing situation? Even in my intoxicated state, I knew that was the only solution. Kyle, while planes and yachts are nice, if family is everything, how could you treat your sister Kim the way you do?  

Until next time.
