Vegas Baby
Over a heartfelt lunch with Lisa, Taylor explains the beach blanket bingo that was Brandi's party. But remedy awaits, as Lisa's bringing her along to Vegas for the big bachelorette party as part of Taylor's birthday.

Meanwhile Adrienne makes it to Vegas -- just in time to stop her brother from holding hands with a Playboy bunny. Soon after Dana, Brandi, Camille, and Dedra arrive at the Palms -- and start bowling. Yes, no big deal, the suite also has a bowling alley. So Camille bowls in heels and Brandi bowls in her boot, like that’s not strange at all. They do surprisingly well, particularly because of Dana's extremely encouraging words ("You're so thin and hot."). Also during this endeavor Dana is wearing a diamond lollipop holder valued at $1 million dollars. The last time I went bowling, we drank a pitcher of Bud heavy and, as a group, were all wearing the same shoes. I am never hanging out with my friends again.

Meanwhile, the Pandora party arrives at the Chippendales show. . .In a rare case of things exceeding your expectations this scene was even better than I could have ever imagined. Lisa Vanderpump discussed "cock socks" and how long it would take to knit something like that. And then, once the show itself commenced, the gyrating -- oh dear lord -- so much gyrating on couches. If you can bear it, hang tight to see Lisa, Pandora, and Taylor show the men how it is done.

I think Taylor said it best when she described her reaction as half-terrified and half thrilled.
