While most of the women were enjoying a birthday-inspired vacation to Hawaii on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" (Mon., 9 p.m. EST on Bravo), the uncomfortable clock ticking on Taylor Armstrong's marriage to her now-deceased husband Russell continued to move at glacial speed.
Everyone knows how the story ends -- with Russell committed suicide -- but in the strange reality of television, Taylor called Lisa Vanderpump with some big news. Kyle Richards was with Lisa, so she was there as well when Taylor said, "You know what? My marriage is over."
Kyle had to pull out of her the details, but Taylor revealed that Russell was moving out and she was changing the locks. No more fighting, no more drama. "my hand to God, I feel so at peace," she admitted.
Meanwhile, Kyle was fretting more and more about Kim's erratic behavior. By episode's end, she'd missed two flights and still hadn't made it to the islands. Much like the Armstrong marriage, many viewers already know that Kim's story ultimately leads her to rehab. These final five episodes of Season 2 look to be headed down a dark path with few happy endings.
