Episode 8:'s Associate Editor wonders how many estheticians it will take to solve the Brandi/Kyle/Kim feud.

Hello my little lovelies,
Has everyone calmed down from the Game Night fight? I'm still in a state of shock and may never eat a meringue or play "Celebrity" again. But move on we must. It's a new day in Beverly Hills filled with revitalizing spa treatments and half-hearted apologies. Let's recap shall we?

Know Your Chicken
Many moons ago, when I saw the season preview that included Adrienne washing the chicken with soap, I thought to myself, "Well there is no way that could be any more delightful."

I was wrong. Seeing just how truly poor Adrienne's poultry knowledge was really took me to a place of laughter. Couple that lack of culinary know-how with Bernie casting his knowing gaze on the proceedings and I could barely hang on. Seeing the world's most judgmental chef giving the side eye throughout the entire process really added another layer to this little moment (much like stuffing a chicken with herbs makes it more delicious). God bless you Adrienne Maloof. May you and Paul have a happy life full of takeout food.

Gold Rush
I don’t want to pick on the lack of food at Game Night, but seriously the spread at spa day only made me wonder whether perhaps Adrienne had heard how hungry everyone was last time and stocked up. "Hmm," she might have pondered, “"Only meringues and breadsticks at the last party -- I'll solve that by serving red velvet cakes covered in flakes of gold." Like Kyle I was curious as to where the edible diamonds might be, but I do suppose it is a recession.

Besides, the extravagant eats, let's talk about the litany of spa options available that day. It was as though someone was singing the "12 Days of Personal Care" -- three manicurists, two estheticians, one spray tan booth! But perhaps the most relaxing delight Adrienne provided was the trampoline, where Kim found her moment of zen doing flips with her sister. Unfortunately, less relaxing was Camille's spray tan adventure. I think we've all learned the most important lesson of spa day -- don't get a spray tan if you aren't interested in the other ladies seeing you in hot pink skivvies.

Selective Seeing
After Brandi took the elevator up to collect her spa robe (that was my immediate fear when she got to the party – how was she going to get a robe?), she was fully in attendance and ready to spend some time relaxing with the Richards sisters – if Kim would acknowledge her. Kim mentioned that her "selective seeing" prevented her from talking to Brandi directly mainly because she has a "dirty, dirty, ugly mouth, like a sewer."

Kyle on the other hand attempted to be a little more receptive to Brandi's apology (sort of), but no amount of cucumber water or laser face techniques or specific apology instructions from the other ladies was enough to build that bridge.

And so, Brandi hobbled off from a fresh fight with Kyle -- but still looking fresh faced. We’ll see if Pandora's party and its grand menagerie will help to mend bridges at all. My mother always said that if two people don’t get along, put them in a room with a camel and they’ll probably work it out.

Kim: Kyle Should Be Worried, Not Embarrassed

Kim explains why she acted so out of it and why she felt hurt by Kyle.

I think this episode should be renamed “Awkward.” The events that happened were definitely tough on a personal level, but at the same time, I can’t help but have a laugh about it in the end. All I can say is there’s so much more than what meets the eye—let me give you the behind-the-scenes scoop!
From the limo to the spa to the wine tasting, there was literally alcohol everywhere in this episode. But I am so strong in my sobriety today and know how to handle situations like this. I removed myself from the situation and was fine the whole trip. It was AWKWARD only because the people made the situation awkward by constantly checking in on me. While I am appreciative of everyone’s concern, I just want them to trust me when I say, “I’m totally fine. It doesn’t bother me.” Overall, the spa day was perfectly fine and fun.

Before I dive into the meat of the drama, can I just point out the limo conversations?! Here we go again! Every time we’re in a limo, it’s like the real Vagina Monologues. As for Brandi’s sexual fantasy, that was no surprise to me! Hilarious.

I was hurt that all Kyle could say was how embarrassed she was. As a sister, I would be worried, not embarrassed.

Kim Richards

OK—now here’s the back story to the whole poker night debacle. Before the poker party took place, I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. I went to the doctor several times because I was in so much pain, so I really was in no shape to go to the spa day or poker night. And I definitely didn’t want to go out when Monty came back to the house before poker night after being gone for a couple days. I just wanted to stay at home with him, but I had to go to Eileen’s with the girls. I took the pain medication from Monty thinking it can get me through the pain I was experiencing. Little did I know, it just made me kind of out of it! But seriously, if I knew the medication was going to affect me in a negative way, I would have NEVER taken it. Careless decision on my part—lesson learned! Also, I was hurt that all Kyle could say was how embarrassed she was. As a sister, I would be worried, not embarrassed. I’m just grateful that Brandi was a good friend and supported me. What I don’t understand is why so many of the girls tried to make me stay when all I wanted to do was go home and rest after it got AWKWARD. Why would anyone want to make the situation worse after me and Kyle’s bathroom confrontation? Sometimes, we all just have to "let it go."

In the next episode you will see that I end up in the hospital with major injuries due to being sick, but because of my history, some people will automatically assume one thing, even though they have seen nothing but strength and courage in my sobority for the last three years. To quote myself, if I may, “I have nothing to hide from anybody.” I’m glad I’m able to tell my side of the story here. Despite all the AWKWARD drama between Kyle, me, and Brandi, I just want to focus on staying healthy, strong, and happy for myself and my loved ones! Until next time!
