'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Recap: The War Rages On

Posted: 12/18/2012 3:04 am

Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven't seen Season 3, Episode 7 of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," titled "Oy, Faye!"

While Bravo shook up the third season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" with an epic, profanity-laced scream-fest last week, it seems as though the series returned to its previously sleepy ways. This is probably because Brandi's "bombshell" was still edited out of the entire show. Seriously, Bravo? You pull this with not one, but two episodes? I do not appreciate it.

Viewers returned to Brandi's war with Adrienne and Paul Maloof at Mauricio's windy rooftop party. We were reminded of Adrienne's whole Brandi "slept till 3:00 p.m. and left [her] kids alone" accusation, and witnessed a drawn out version of the Maloofs exiting the party.

After they left, the housewives avec Camille, but sans Lisa and Yolanda, were left to ride that drama wave for as long as possible. Kyle immediately started arguing with Kim about her decision to tell the Maloofs, while Taylor looked like she wanted to vomit -- admitting that Paul screaming in Brandi's face made her uncomfortable.

After yelling at her sister for causing such a raucous, Kyle then started picking fights with everyone, thereby extending the original conflict and attempting to insert herself as the central character, so the fight would revolve around her.

Kyle shot Taylor down when the domestic violence survivor said she felt uncomfortable that Paul was up in Brandi's face. "This is not about you, Taylor," a sassy and mean-spirited Kyle said in her confessional. This strikes me as, well, just not the right response. At all. Ever. And it seems like what Kyle really meant to say was, "This is about me, got it?"

Then Taylor, without explicitly saying so, compared the situation between Brandi dropping a bombshell about Adrienne, to Camille's whole "that's not cool" rant in Season 2 about Taylor's now-deceased abusive husband.

During her confessional, Camille pointed out what she called the "big difference" between Adrienne and Taylor. She said that Taylor basically blabbed freely about her situation, whereas Adrienne never blabbed about whatever it is that we don't know yet (possibly Adrienne using a surrogate if the rumors are true). Then, Camille made some really awkward hand gesture to drive her point home, but it actually looked like she was milking a cow.

Kyle went to have lunch with her friend Faye, the woman famous for taking on the electronic cigarette-smoking ghost whisperer Allison Dubois in the Season 1 episode, "Dinner Party From Hell." She's also known for testifying against O.J. Simpson and later posing nude for Playboy.

We learned that Faye is not a Brandi fan, and then viewers had to sit through yet another scene where the cast members talked about that thing we don't know because the network continued to edit it out of every conversation. I really don't see why Faye is ever on this show, but Kyle said she's hosting a dinner party on Friday, and invited her to attend.

Then, Yolanda returned! But we had to watch her work out, which I found to be a downright terrifying experience. I really could have used some easing into this scene of the alien that is Yolanda sprinting up her palatial staircase like a madwoman, doing better push ups than Michelle Obama and just generally being a freak of a workout fiend with her trainer, Dr. Dale. Yes, Dr. Dale, who was staring at her bod as she dipped, and bended, and jumped, and stretched and yelled out in debatably pretend anguish, "You're so mean!" I'm getting stressed out just writing about this. But she kept going, and started doing these strange pulsating squat-type-things with her arms stretched out in front of her.

Then we were privileged to some more useless Yolanda-isms. She's already told us that there's nothing worse than a drunk woman. This week, she told us that she believed "exercise is the fountain of youth."

"I'm always riding horses, biking. Like last week, I swam two miles every day -- I thought I was part of the Olympics," she said with a laugh.

I'm shaking my head in disbelief right now.

But Yolanda continued on about how she saw her model daughter walk the runway and her butt and legs were "so tight"; and how she really wants to be married to her husband David Foster for longer than his previous three marriages so she needs "to keep [her] ass tight."

I really don't know how to address the insanity that was Yolanda working out and sharing her mind-numbing, painful thoughts about life, fitness, fountains and youth -- but I do feel like I have whiplash.

Meanwhile, Brandi was at Lisa's home and said she's felt so anxious about her feud with Adrienne that she's been picking her face. Lisa gasped in horror. "Leave your face alone!" she cried.

After, we had to sit through what felt like the millionth conversation about the thing Brandi said that we don't really know about.

Here's Brandi's version of the whole fight:

Kim told Adrienne and Paul ... But I didn't even know they were there yet. I saw them from a far and thought they were having an argument. And then, all of a sudden, he comes walking -- I'm sitting in a chair this whole time -- and he's like, 'You bitch, you bitch'; and I'm like -- he was this close to my face [insert thumb and index finger gesture depicting a small space here] -- and screaming -- and he's like, 'Bitch, bitch, bitch'; and she's screaming.

I have to give Brandi credit -- this was a fairly accurate description. She just forgot to mention her own comments, like when she called Paul "baby." That was weird.

And then I blinked and Lisa and Brandi were outside with Ken -- chipper as ever -- who was puttering around the garden in a straw hat. Brandi gave him a hug and then Ken just dropped trou to show off his hip replacement scar. WTF, KEN?!

"Ken we don't want to see that," Lisa scolded. "Ken's a superhero!" Brandi cheered. And then they went inside and Ken pulled up his pants.

So we finally reached Friday (not to imply that there's any sort of logical timeline to this show, but Kyle said her party was happening on a Friday). Adrienne, Kim and Yolanda were absent (our resident workout warrior was at Donna Summers' funeral).

Kyle toasted to Faye for decorating her dining room, the near-completion of which Kyle used as an excuse to gather the housewives. Besides the flowers at the center of the table that looked Vanderpump-esque, the room was drab.

"It is so you, in every way," Faye said. I found the remark insulting to Kyle, considering my aforementioned opinion of said dining room.

Within moments, Brandi was asked to rehash the entire feud between her and Adrienne. Faye prepared to pounce. And after Brandi said that Adrienne "might have bought a book deal," Faye interjected.

"I'm not going to get into it with you, because I don't know you that well. But [Adrienne's] been horrible to me, and that's just what it is," Brandi said.

Then Lisa and Kyle started bickering at one another after the women suggested Brandi send Adrienne flowers to apologize. Brandi refused.

Then Faye just ended the whole conversation by saying, "Forget the flowers; send her an orchid." I have no idea if Faye was serious or trying to be funny. It could go either way because I really do think Faye might not know that orchids are also flowers. Again, why is she on this show?

Part of me feels certain that Faye was brought in so the series could have a "Dinner Party From Hell: Part Deux," but it all just fell completely flat -- probably because we have no idea what Brandi said about Adrienne.

Faye continued to provoke Brandi, so she just got up and left the table. And I'm not sure why but Kyle uttered a very dramatic "Shit!" and then the episode ended.

Where do you think we'll go from here? What do you think about the fact that we still don't know for sure what Brandi said about Adrienne? Did I leave anything out? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.

  • Hilary Duff vs. Lindsay Lohan

    Take two Disney starlets and one prepubescent popstar and you have a recipe for one of the most discussed celebrity feuds of the 2000s. Back in 2002, Aaron Carter reportedly broke up with or cheated on Hilary Duff, who he was dating for two years, to hook up with Lindsay Lohan. The 15-year-old Casanova then left Lohan to get back together with Duff. Though the girls should have been furious with Carter, they instead turned on each other. Their feud played out in the pages of magazines with both actresses <a href="http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/8669450/ns/today-entertainment/t/lohan-says-duff-rebuffed-her-peace-attempt/" target="_hplink">taking shots at each other for years. </a> By 2007 the girls put their past behind them and made up. "We are both adults and whatever happened, happened when we were young," Duff <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20033534,00.html" target="_hplink">told <em>People</em></a>. "It's over."

  • Jon Hamm vs. Kim Kardashian

    "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm recently made some unflattering <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/09/jon-hamm-slams-kim-kardashian-idiot-culture_n_1335411.html" target="_hplink">comments to <em>Elle UK</em> </a>about celebrity culture, putting reality TV queen Kim Kardashian in his crosshairs. "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly," he told the magazine. Kim responded on Twitter, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/12/kim-kardashian-responds-jon-hamm-stupid_n_1339923.html?ref=the-kardashians" target="_hplink">writing</a>: "I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, 'stupid,' is in my opinion careless." When asked about his comments, <a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/jon_hamm_kim_kardashian_slam_not/301003#ixzz1p6Yz2tbE" target="_hplink">Hamm told E! News</a>, "It's surprising to me that this has become remotely a story. I don't know Ms. Kardashian. I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in culture, not personal, but she took offense to it and that is her right."

  • Courtney Love vs. Dave Grohl

    It's a known fact that Courtney Love hates former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, and he is by no means fond of her. The two have been feuding over the rights to Nirvana's music since Kurt Cobain killed himself in 1994. Most recently, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/15/courtney-love-explains-foo-fighters-rant_n_1095238.html" target="_hplink">Courtney explained</a> why she hates the Foo Fighters frontman, after playing a show in Brazil. "What I was saying, is Dave makes $5 million a show, he doesn't need the money. His mother's a banker, his father's a stock broker and he's making $5 million a show. Why the f**k then does he have a Nivana Inc. credit card and I don't? And last week he bought an Aston Martin on it," she said.

  • Miley vs. Selena Gomez & Demi Lovato

    Disney starlets do not play nice. In 2008, teen queen Miley Cyrus went head to head with Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. BFFs Selena and Demi used to make goofy videos they would post to YouTube, much to the chagrin of Miley as it turned out. Miley and her BFF Mandy made a parody video where they mocked the other girls, making fun of their makeup and the gap in Demi's front teeth. The feud appeared to come out of nowhere. "To be honest I don't know what happened," <a href="http://newsroom.mtv.com/2008/08/01/the-miley-cyrus-selena-gomez-demi-lovato-feud-nonexistent/" target="_hplink">Selena told MTV</a>. "I though we were okay, but to be honest, I don't even know [Miley and Mandy]. And Demi has never met Miley. It's interesting -- that's all I'm going to say about it." They all eventually made up and became friends. <a href="http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00021443.html" target="_hplink">Miley addressed the feud in a YouTube video in 2009: </a> "So everyone's thinking there's a big feud between me and Selena and Demi. Actually, I'm going to have meatloaf with Demi tonight. I'm riding my bike to Demi's house. So I'm going to be partying with Demi 'cause we're friends, and I love her and she is always there for me. She is one of my bestest friends."

  • Donald Trump vs. Rosie O'Donnell

    There are many celebs who have feuded with Donald Trump, but his ongoing fight with Rosie O'Donnell remains the most memorable. In 2006, Rosie criticized Trump for not dethroning Miss USA Tara Conner after her drug scandal and she called him a "pimp" and "snake oil salesman." Never one to take things lying down, Trump responded by calling her a "big, fat pig" and a "loser." Their feud dragged on until no one wanted to hear what either of them had to say and it unfortunately started up again. <a href="http://www.accesshollywood.com/donald-trump-and-rosie-odonnell-feud-reignited_article_57986" target="_hplink">In December 2011, Trump tweeted</a>, "Same last name, same bad ratings - @lawrence and @rosie," and linked to a YouTube clip of himself ranting about how neither of their talk shows were doing well. Rosie tweeted back, "How many billionaires sell ties and have crappy non reality shows -- none - go back to selling snake oil #bankruptmuch?" Neither will spare the public of their immaturity and their feud continues today.

  • Will.i.am vs. Perez Hilton

    Gossip blogger Perez Hilton was confronted by the Black Eyed Peas at the Much Music Video Awards in 2009 and began hurling insults at Will.i.am and the rest of the band. Perez was <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/22/perez-hilton-called-willi_n_219088.html" target="_hplink">punched in the face</a> by Will.i.am's manager and the blogger later tweeted, "I was assaulted by Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need a police report. No joke." Will.i.am later denied Hilton's claims and Hilton shot back with a 12-minute video blasting the Black Eyed Pea as a "disgusting human being" and "a fucking liar." Perez later sued Will.i.am's manager and a s<a href="http://wonderwall.msn.com/music/perez-hilton-black-eyed-peas-manager-settle-suit-1537413.story" target="_hplink">ettlement was reached.</a>

  • Lindsay Lohan vs. Brandon Davis

    Who needs enemies when you have friends like Brandon Davis? Back in 2006, Lindsay Lohan was pals with Paris Hilton, until Paris accused her of trying to steal her boyfriend, Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos. Once Lindsay was on the outs with her socialite friends, oil heir Davis took it upon himself to brand Lohan with a nickname. While drunk in LA one night, Davis was filmed ranting about Lohan, <a href="http://www.tmz.com/2006/05/17/paris-and-brandon-davis-the-incredible-hatred-toward-lindsay/#.T2FG_HJSTdc" target="_hplink">dubbing her "fire crotch," and making other rude and disgusting claims. </a>

  • Kelly Osbourne vs. Christina Aguilera

    These ladies need to learn to keep their comments to themselves. Back in the day, Christina Aguilera apparently used to call Kelly Osbourne fat, and now that Kelly has slimmed down and Christina has gained a few pounds the tables have turned. Osbourne made sure to call attention to the singer's weight gain, not once, but twice in 2011. "Maybe she is just becoming the fat bitch she was born to be. I don't know. She was a c**t to me. And she bought my house," Osbourne said <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/04/kelly-osbourne-calls-christina-aguilera-a-fat-bitch_n_918063.html" target="_hplink">during an episode of "Fashion Police" that aired in August.</a> "She called me fat for so many f***ing years, so you know what? F**k you! You're fat too." Then in October, the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/17/kelly-osbourne-i-was-never-as-fat-as-christina-aguilera_n_1015490.html" target="_hplink">singer was again the topic of discussion on the show: </a> "Lady Marmalade got into the peanut better again," quipped co-host Joan Rivers when criticizing Aguilera's too-tight outfit. "She called me fat for years, I was never that fat," Osbourne said and later added, "Trust me, I'm a 2/4. That is not a 2/4."

  • Shannen Doherty vs. Alyssa Milano

    Shannen Doherty has a reputation as Hollywood's bad girl and feuded with nearly all of her "Beverly Hills, 90210" castmates, and yet it was her feud with Alyssa Milano that will go down as the worst. The "Charmed" co-stars began fighting on set during the third season and it was reported that Shannen was jealous of Alyssa's popularity. Tension ran high on set and things grew so heated, producers had to bring in a mediator to resolve their issues. When they couldn't work things out, Shannen left the show.

  • Mariah Carey vs. Eminem

    Is there anyone Eminem hasn't feuded with? Eminem and Mariah Carey began to spar after he claimed that they used to have a sexual relationship. Mariah denied the relationship, telling Larry King, "I hung out with him, I spoke to him on the phone. I think I was probably with him a total of four times. And I don't consider that dating somebody." Mariah later mocked his claim in her video for "Obsessed," which featured an Eminem look-alike who was obsessed with her. The rapper retaliated with a number of songs that mentioned Carey and threatened to release nude photos of the singer as well as voicemails to prove they dated. In the song "The Warning" he raps: "Shut the fuck up before I put up all the phone calls you made to my house when you were "Wild N' Out" before Nick, when you was on my dick and give you something to smile about."

  • Charlie Sheen vs. Chuck Lorre

    When Charlie Sheen lost his mind in 2011, he dug his own grave and lost his job as the highest paid actor on television. Sheen went on a rampage, verbally attacking "Two and a Half Men" showrunner Chuck Lorre, after CBS suspended the series due to Sheen's insane behavior. After Lorre make a joke about Sheen, the <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20469063,00.html" target="_hplink">actor attacked him, calling Lorre a "clown" </a>, and made a strange anti-Semitic dig, saying his real name is "Chaim Levine" (though his name is actually Charles Michael Levine). Sheen continued to blast Lorre as a "stupid, stupid little man and a p*ssy punk that I never want to be like." Now that Sheen appears to be sober, Lorre has <a href="http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-01-11/news/30618049_1_half-men-fx-network-leaf" target="_hplink">chosen to take the high road.</a> "I wish him well. I'm glad he's happy and sober," he said in January 2012.

  • Lauren Conrad vs. Heidi and Spencer

    "You know what you did," Lauren Conrad screamed at Heidi Montag on an episode of "The Hills." Lauren and Heidi's friendship began to dissolve in 2007, when Heidi started dating Spencer Pratt. "He's a sucky person," she infamously told her one-time best friend. Heidi chose a relationship with Spencer over a friendship with Lauren and spread a rumor there was a<a href="http://www.justjared.com/2008/05/01/heidi-montag-lauren-conrad-feud/" target="_hplink"> Lauren Conrad sex tape floating around. </a> Heidi tried to repair things with Lauren, but she wasn't having it. "I want to forgive you and I want to forget you," Lauren told her as <a href="http://www.sheknows.com/living/march-madness-mix-up-gallery/cry-faces/lauren-conrad-3" target="_hplink">mascara ran down her face</a>. The feud eventually ended but they never repaired their friendship. As Spencer began to fade into obscurity he tried make himself relevant by burying the hatchet with Conrad, <a href="http://tv.yahoo.com/news/lauren-conrad-planning-ignore-spencer-pratts-apology-000504559.html" target="_hplink">wishing her a happy birthday</a> on Twitter in February 2012.

  • Chris Christie vs. Snooki

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has no love for the "Jersey Shore" cast and Snooki isn't fond of him either. Christie has been vocal about his distaste for the cast and has referred to them as "losers," and also vetoed a $420,000 tax credit for the MTV reality show in September 2011. Snooki doesn't appriaciate being called a loser and the pint-size reality star <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/01/snooki-refuses-to-vote-for-chris-christie_n_1247211.html" target="_hplink">tweeted that she wouldn't be voting for Christie for president </a> and added, "Love always, the "buffoons" from that degrading Jersey Shore show." Christie wasn't and isn't running for president, but Snooki regardless explained: "I DEF don't want a judgmental president who has NEVER met me in person. F that. idc who exploits me. But for a man wanting to be president&calling us names when he's never met us..no thanks. I'll stick w Obama."

  • Kid Rock vs. Steven Tyler

    Kid Rock had a big problem with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler taking on a new gig as a judge on "American Idol" in 2010. Kid Rock didn't believe a true rock star would even think about working for a show like "Idol" and proceeded to trash Tyler for it. <a href="http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/39954827/ns/today-entertainment/t/kid-rock-slams-steven-tylers-american-idol-gig/#.T2ICPGLLwbI" target="_hplink">Rock told<em> Entertainment Weekly,</em></a> "I think it's the stupidest thing he's ever done in his life. He's a sacred American institution of rock and roll, and he just threw it all out the window. Just stomped on it and se it on fire." At a press conference, Tyler <a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/steven-tyler-on-kid-rock-hes-just-jealous-20101105" target="_hplink">responded</a>, "He's just jealous, he's just jealous. And he's working on his new record, so God bless him."

  • Chris Brown vs. Miranda Lambert

    Miranda Lambert was not happy to see Chris Brown performing at the Grammy Awards. "And Chris Brown Twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl...Not cool that we act like that didn't happen," she tweeted referencing Brown's brutal 2009 assault on Rihanna. Brown responded indirectly by tweeting, "Hate all you want because I got a grammy now! That's the ultimate f*** off." Then at her concert, Lambert held up a handwritten poster that read, "Take notes Chris Brown" and said to the audience, "Listen, I just need to speak my mind. Where I come from, beating up on a women is never OK. So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun." Brown fired back in a series of tweets: "Using my name to get publicity? I love it! Perform your heart out! Go buy @miranda_lambert! So motivational and "PERFECT." Goodnight to all the people who live life and who aren't stuck in the past!"

  • Brett Ratner v. Olivia Munn

    In actress Olivia Munn's book "Suck It, Wonder Woman," she recounts her brief romantic dalliance with director Brett Ratner and didn't have anything nice to say about the size of his penis. Ratner <a href="http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/243711/20111104/brett-ratner-admits-banged-olivia-munn-promoting.htm" target="_hplink">addressed the claims on "Attack of the Show" saying</a>, "I used to date Olivia Munn, I'll be honest with everyone here, when she was Lisa...she wasn't Asian back then." He continued: "She was hanging out on my set of 'After the Sunset,' I banged her a few times. But I forgot her...because she changed her name...I didn't know it was the same person, so when she came and auditioned for me for a TV show I forgot her, she got pissed off, and she made up all these stories about me eating shrimp and masturbating in my trailer." Munn responded by tweeting a link to a <em>Cosmo</em> article she had written titled, "How to Stand up to an A-Hole," that detailed an incident with a director she called the "Douche."

  • LeAnn Rimes vs. Giuliana Rancic

    LeAnn Rimes is skinny -- so skinny that she has people worrying that she's not eating. The equally skinny Giuliana Rancic was one those people. Pot, meet kettle. The two skinny ladies battled it out <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/30/leann-rimes-responds-giuliana-rancic_n_941579.html" target="_hplink">telling each other to eat a sandwich. </a>

  • Ciara vs. Rihanna

    Rihanna and Ciara -- who both dated Chris Brown in the past -- got into a heated public spat in February 2011. First Ciara made a dig at Rihanna on "Fashion Police," saying: "I ran into her recently at a party. She wasn't the nicest. It's crazy because I've always loved and respected what she's done in fashion. It wasn't the most pleasant run-in." When Rihanna heard what Ciara had said, she fired back on Twitter. "My bad Ci, did I forget to tip you? How rude of me.... You gangsta huh? Ha." They volleyed insults and threats at each other and then Rihanna called a truce. "Ciara baby, I love you girl! You hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I'm heartbroken! That's why I retaliated this way! So sorry! Let's make up." Ciara accepted the apology and that was that.

  • Kourtney Kardashian vs. Farrah Abraham

    This might be one of the most ridiculous celebrity fights of all time. "Teen Mom" cast member Farrah Abraham didn't think things through when she criticized Kourtney Kardashian on Twitter. "I'm shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again Did she not learn anything from TEEN MOM? Maybe its a fake pregnancy like kims wedding SAD," she tweeted. Kourtney was understandably confused by the attack and tweeted back, "Why would I have anything to do with Teen Mom? I'm 32 years old! I may look young, honey, but don't get it twisted." While Kourtney suggested that Farrah had no idea what she was talking about, the "Teen Mom" star couldn't resist firing back at her: "Guess what! Age and money honestly do not change a person's poor choice. Quit making excuses," she tweeted. Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick also got in on the fight, sarcastically tweeting at Farrah, "We're not teenagers, ya f**king moron." When asked if he knew who she was, he responded, ""I just thought she was some shit stain on Twitter, no?" Sadly, this Twitter fight actually continued with Farrah later tweeting, "4 all who mistunderstood: regards to kourtney K.~I hope she takes her relationship w/her boyfriend more serious 4 their children-takecare." Shortly after, however, she couldn't resist getting one more word in with a jab at Disick: "Caught wind of these dramatic articles, w/ loser scott disick or some boyfriend of kourtneys, is Shit Stain < racist 4 black?" she wrote. "Great dad! NOT."

  • Anthony Bourdain vs. Paula Deen

    Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is not a fan of Paula Deen's cooking. In 2011 he told <em>TV Guide</em> she was "the worst, most dangerous person to America." Deen responded, claiming, "You know, not everybody can afford to pay $58 for prime rib or $650 for a bottle of wine. My friends and I cook for regular families who worry about feeding their kids and paying the bills . . . It wasn't that long ago that I was struggling to feed my family, too." Months later, after Deen announced she has Type 2 diabetes and was now a paid spokeswoman for a diabetes medication, Bourdain <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20562258,00.html" target="_hplink">responded with a thinly veiled tweet</a>: "Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later." Deen fired back that Bourdain should "get a life".

  • Jonah Hill vs. Matthew Morrison

    Jonah Hill made it clear he was no fan of "Glee" star Matthew Morrison, when he appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" in September 2011. Hill recalled a "douchey Hollywood party" where he tried to eavesdrop on a conversation between "Gossip Girl" actor Chace Crawford and Morrison, who had<a href="http://www.dlisted.com/2011/09/23/fight-fight-jonah-hill-vs-matthew-morrison" target="_hplink"> made a joke at Hill's expense at an event a few weeks earlier</a>. He then overheard the two drop his name and start laughing. Hill took the opportunity on "Late Night" to call out the "Glee" actor: "Matthew Morrison, you better bring your sh*t next time I see you...I'd like to see him sing his way out of this one," he said. Morrison responded by sending a goofy video to "Late Night," where he finished his joke about Hill and then accepted the actor's challenge, saying, "Nobody messes with someone from musical theater!" This extremely dorky feud <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1673980/jonah-hill-matthew-morrison-sitter.jhtml" target="_hplink">eventually just blew over</a>.

  • Chelsea Handler vs. Michelle "Bombshell" McGee

    Chelsea Handler <a href="http://blog.zap2it.com/pop2it/2010/04/chelsea-handler-goes-after-michelle-bombshell-mcgee-some-more.html" target="_hplink">started a feud with Jesse James' tattooed mistress Michelle "Bombshell" McGee in 2010,</a> with a joke she wrote on her blog: "I guess she doesn't read magazines which makes sense, since she basically has one on her face." McGee responded on her Facebook page writing: "Chelsea, here's some free advice: Use some of that Botox from your forehead and put it in your flabby underarm skin. I've seen better wings in a bucket of KFC chicken." And later wrote, ""In all seriousness, Im a big fan of 'Chelsea Lately' ... I was laughing my ass off.... feel so honored to have a transexual [sic] poke fun of me ..." Don't mess with a comedian -- Handler didn't hold back with her response to McGee: "First of all, look at my forehead, you dumb bitch, okay? It moves ... You have a tattoo on your forehead, so you have had a needle in your forehead -- and probably Jesse James' balls. So shut your face."

  • Ryan Murphy vs. Kings of Leon

    This feud started after Kings of Leon declined to allow the Fox series "Glee," to cover one of its songs on a future episode. "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy was pissed and <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/26/kings-of-leon-vs-glee-nathan-followill-fires-back-at-ryan-murphy-in-homophobic-rant_n_814351.html" target="_hplink">sent a message to the band via <em>The Hollywood Reporter</em></a>: "F**K you, Kings of Leon," he said. "They're self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It's like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music." KOL member Nathan Followill fired back with a homophobic dig at openly gay Murphy, tweeting: "Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say f**k." Realizing how his comments could be seen, Followill later tweeted: "I'm sorry 4 anyone that misconstrued my comments as homophobic or misogynistic. I'm so not that kind of person. I really do apologize."

  • Tom Cruise vs. Brooke Shields

    In 2005, Tom Cruise seemed to have lost his marbles when he jumped on couches on Oprah's talkshow. He then lashed out at actress Brooke Shields, while on the "Today" show, telling Matt Lauer that Shields should not have taken antidepressants to combat the postpartum depression she was suffering from after the birth of her first child. Cruise, a Scientologist who shuns psychiatry, insisted the depression could be treated with "vitamins and exercise." Shields responded by writing an <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/01/opinion/01shields.html" target="_hplink">op-ed piece in the <em>New York Times,</em> writing</a>: "I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Mr. Cruise has never suffered from postpartum depression ... And comments like those made by Tom Cruise are a disservice to mothers everywhere ... If any good can come of Mr. Cruise's ridiculous rant, let's hope that it gives much-needed attention to a serious disease." Cruise later apologized to <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1531255,00.html" target="_hplink">Shields, the actress told Jay Leno </a>a year later. "He came over to my house and he gave me a heartfelt apology. And he apologized for bringing me into the whole thing and for everything that happened," she said.

  • Taylor Swift vs. Kanye West

    Kayne West infamously hijacked Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 Video Music Awards, interrupting her to say, "I'm really happy for you. I'ma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time." Swift was dumbstruck by the incident and it seemed as if she didn't want to get into it with the rapper. "I don't know him, and I've never met him, so..." she said. "I don't want to start anything because I had a great night tonight." A year later she was literally singing a different tune. At the 2010 VMAs she p<a href="http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2010/09/13/taylor-swift-kanye-west-mtv-video-music-awards-youre-still-an-innocent-time-we-had-a-toast/" target="_hplink">erformed her new song</a> "You're Still an Innocent," a reference to the previous year's incident with West, basically calling him immature. "Thirty-two and still growing up now / who you are is not what you did / you're still an innocent," she sang. Kanye didn't have any right to fire back, but of course he did. At a concert in New York City, <a href="http://www.popeater.com/2010/11/24/kanye-west-concert-taylor-swift/" target="_hplink">West blasted Swift to his fans</a>: "Everybody needs a villain, don't we? We need to blame someone at all times ... I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to word it, but I wrote it, I rode it, just as Taylor never came to my defense in any interview, and rode the waves and rode it and rode it." The feud seems to have blown over, as Swift wore a blouse from Kanye West's spring 2012 collection in the <a href="http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2012/03/07/taylor-swift-kanye-west-design-harpers-bazaar-australia/" target="_hplink">pages of <em>Harper's Bazaar.</em> </a>
