Ep 12: Bravotv.com's Editor ponders pole dancing skills, Babs laundry tips, and the battle over partial ownership.

Hello my favorite pole dancers and part-owners. Let's jump right in because we've got loads to cover.

Pole Position
Finally the time has come for all our ladies to take their turn at the pole. I have to say I could not have been more excited about what delightful dances we were about to see. The women have been really getting their groove on this season (see the tumbles in Ojai), so I had high hopes for their steps here.

Of course Brandi had practiced, so she had a slight advantage. Next up: Kyle and Camille. Knowing that a) Kyle can do the splits at the drop of a hat and b) that Camille once shook it for ClubMTV, I had a feeling this was going to be good. Yet, Camille tried to demure like this was going to be so hard for her. And of course it wasn't. She found her inner sexy as though it was right out in the open. No inner sexys hidden in haystacks here. This episode gets 10 bonus points for Camille dancing. Also Kyle tried to slide down the pole like a fireman, so that deserves a barrel of accolades in and of it self.

Then it was time for our foreign friends to hold an embassy summit on the pole. And Lisa and Yolanda were as splendid as you can imagine.

ATTITUDE.

Also as it turns out, a feather boa works magnificently as a belt. Stripping diplomas for everyone!

Buy a Nose
Back in the car, Kyle receives a phone call from her darling sister. Kim has news, but she's not sure If it's news for the whole car (whole car news is the most revealing news of all). You see she maybe forgot to tell Kyle that she was getting her nose done until today. . .which happens to be the day of her surgery. She's still a little scared about going under the knife. But she knows God doesn't mind a slight improvement if it's for the greater good -- so charging ahead. Plus her doctor is very rested (she checked) so everything is great!

And it goes swimmingly. She's bummed she's sans sister, but surely Kyle will be home to help her recover soon enough.

Meanwhile, also back in Beverly Hills, Adrienne is honing her business skills -- which she points out does not include pole dancing. She's working on her handbag line and also ensuring that Paul's desk and his back are slightly less disheveled. She takes Paul in for some laser hair removal on his back, which truly he takes like a champ. Sure he whines a bit, but it's a laser y'all. If you people heard me when I'm getting my eyebrows threaded you'd think you were mistakenly watching the beginning of Zero Dark Thirty. He'll endure be her own hairless mini-Mauricio in no time.

Ms. Deeds (Or Who Owns What)
All that pole dancing surely worked up an appetite, so next we see the ladies sitting down to a nice dinner (after discussing when Camille sold her private plane and why her arms are so weak). Also of note: Yolanda drinks straight tequila. There's not even a lemon squirted into there, so if you thought this woman was a light weight you are sorely mistaken.

Oh yes, and there's lots of talk of the kind of socks people wear during sex scenes. Oh, and garment cleaning trips from Barbara Streisand (white wine + red wine = cleanliness).

Of course, it wouldn't be a dinner with the Beverly Hills gang without some hot button topics coming up. First off is Kim's surgery. Everyone is a bit worried because it's a little soon in her recovery for Kim to be on pain medication. Brandi's friend Jennifer is there, and is worried all of this could awaken the beast.

But how do you transition out of such a touchy subject? If you're Camille, you bring up how you feel bad about Adrienne. . .and that doesn't go over splendidly. Surprisingly, Yolanda is very vocal about Adrienne's choice to stay home, and then things get into the reunion from Season 2. Brandi says that Adrienne wanted to meet before the reunion to discuss how they were going to "go after" Lisa (a point that Camille denies knowing). After lots of back and forth about if Camille is lying or if Brandi is lying about what she knew, Camille tries to leave dinner. Kyle, who this season seems to be designated to do as much, tries to get Camille to stay.

When she comes back in, Camille brings up Pandora's bachelorette party and the snub that was Lisa's choice of hotel. This leads Brandi to drop that it's not like Adrienne owns the whole Palms anyway –- which leads Camille to ask how much of SUR is really Lisa’s.

But really, Yolanda just wants to know why they’ve wasted three dinners talking about Adrienne and having Kyle defend her. She just wants everyone to shush so she can get on her private plane and get back to David. Camille just doesn't want to get put on the spot. And Brandi, well I'm sure she just wanted to have an incident free dinner. Also, at the end of the day, these women own more than any of us, so what's really the matter?

In better news, Ken makes Giggy "Giggy-tinis" while Lisa is out of town.

Just Breathe
Now that Kyle is back in the Hills, she can rush to Kim's bedside. Kim's not alone of course. She has her giant dog Kingsley to keep her company. And Kim's new nose is adorable (at least it looks to be from the way the bandages are shaped). And Kim's trying to not take any pain medication. Her doctor even said that he knocked her out with a child's size portion of medication. She's enduring this whole ordeal with an electronic cigarette and a dream. Allison DuBois would be so proud.

However, Kyle's visit wasn't all nose talk. She relayed the events of Vegas back to Kim. Meanwhile Lisa told Ken her side of the story. And the two ladies seem supremely divided. Kyle's leaving matters to Lisa, and hearing how disappointed Lisa feels with Kyle's actions, I don't predict great things. . .Perhaps a sit down at SUR is in order?

What do you think? Will Kyle and Lisa make amends? Can they drink enough "Giggy-tinis" to remember the good times. Did Adrienne really not sue Brandi? Well we’ll have to wait until next week to find out about that last part.

Lisa R.: It Felt Just As Awkward As It Looked

Lisa R. talks about the night that went from bad to worse.

Well things just went from zero to sixty rather quickly, didn’t they? Early on, I said how being on this season was similar to being on a roller coaster, and here we are. I feel like up to this point, we have been slowly climbing that first big hill and now we’re at the top, looking down at all of the scream-worthy, white-knuckled action ahead of us.

The quick whirlwind trip to Santa Barbara that Kyle planned was so much fun and full of laughter and really great girl time. The only thing missing from the trip was Yolanda, but she was off having her own wonderful bonding time with her gorgeous girls. It almost seems calling both Gigi and Bella gorgeous is an understatement. The camera loves those Hadid girls, just like it loves their beautiful momma, doesn’t it?

This was a completely different, very unpredictable, and aggressive Kim sitting next to me in the car, and to be honest, it made me feel extremely nervous and anxious.

Needless to say, the rides to and from Santa Barbara were full of crazy conversations. Is it strange to anyone else that we keep talking about grooming habits down there? Seems to be an oddly recurring theme. Anyway, I thought the lunch and wine tasting actually went rather well, all things considered. All of us were concerned about how Kim felt being put into this situation. Like I mentioned, I didn’t know where Kim was in her sobriety at that point with being around alcohol or others drinking it in front of her. I thought she handled it well by knowing when to excuse herself, as I’m sure the whole situation made her uncomfortable. And I certainly know how uncomfortable Kyle was. She really had no idea the lunch would center around drinking. Overall, I’d say the whole trip to Santa Barbara was a success.

The poker tournament at Eileen’s house, however, didn’t quite have the same successful outcome…

I knew the night was going to be a wild one when I saw how Kim was behaving when she arrived at my house before heading to Malibu. She asked to use the bathroom and was acting as if she was high on something, which is why I asked her if she had been drinking or was on drugs when we got into the car. I mean, HELLO! Could that car ride with Kim be any more awkward? Let me tell you, it felt just as awkward as it looked to all of you. I really had no idea what was going on or what to do. Every interaction I have ever had with Kim up until that point was light, fun, and easy going. This was a completely different, very unpredictable, and aggressive Kim sitting next to me in the car, and to be honest, it made me feel extremely nervous and anxious. I wasn’t sure if it was an act or a game we were playing, but deep down in my gut, I knew there was more to it and something was going on with her. I couldn’t get out of that car fast enough when we arrived at Eileen’s home, and I really had no idea what she would do next.

Before we dive deeper into the chaos of the night, I have to say that Vinny is quickly becoming one of my favorites. He’s just so charming and funny, and I love watching him and Eileen banter back and forth. They are such a dynamic couple. Unfortunately, what started as a lovely evening hosted by this fabulous couple quickly disintegrated into a mess of strange behavior. Who knew sitting around a poker table would send some of the girls to the dark side? The repetitive use of the word ‘stupid’ was absolutely unacceptable, though not altogether surprising as Kim and Brandi’s behavior speaks for itself.

That’s all superficial level stuff though that can roll off my back. The part that’s really hard was to watch Kyle realize with both fear and confusion what was going down in front of her own eyes. Kyle is no stranger to this complicated road she’s been down before with Kim, and I know what a deep relationship the two sisters have, so I really feel for her.

I’m sure Lisa V. is thrilled that she wasn’t a part of the crazy evening at Eileen’s. Instead, we got to watch her and Giggy, the little Sex Monster, play nude on the beach in Cabo. I know she was on a much-needed vacation, and I’m happy she was there with her family and precious Gigster.

Looks like we’re picking up speed and not stopping anytime soon!
