Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven't seen Season 3, Episode 16 of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," titled "The Real Housewives of Paris, Part Deux."
Bonjour, "Real Housewives" fans! Tonight we visited the second part of the ladies' Parisian adventure. But before we dive into the poll, let's take a minute to address some very interesting rumors and confirmations that have recently surfaced.
Adrienne confirmed that she will not be returning to "RHOBH" for season 4! Rumors also surfaced that Camille will not be returning either. We all know what my thoughts are on the topic (I urged the show to clean house a few episodes ago and was adamant that Adrienne needed to go), but I'm very curious to know what you think of the changes. I realize there are many loyal Adrienne Maloof fans out there. At least we all agree on Brandi's terrible Oscars dress -- yikes.
The ladies were back to their silly, dramatic ways -- even in Paris -- a city that usually makes women want to sit up a little bit straighter and perhaps experiment with lipstick and/or berets. But not these ladies. They just wanted to bicker. So let's see how each lady fared in tonight's poll. Just to clarify: the ladies are selected for various categories based on their performances in the episode. So in tonight's poll, Lisa is the least popular -- not because viewers don't like her, but because she upset most of the other ladies in the cast tonight. Oh and I'd like to thank everyone that watched Yolanda's wedding video last week and commented about it -- totally agree that she looked very shiny throughout the night.
Best Traveler: Brandi
Brandi is a controversial figure on this show but there is one thing that we cannot deny: the woman rallies. It was clear she had a cold or something during the trip and wasn't necessarily feeling her best. But there she was humoring Yolanda as our Dutch princess cartwheeled by the Seine and dutifully participating in the cooking class Lisa organized, even though it's clear she's probably never cooked a day in her life.
Worst Traveler: Kim
Where do we even begin? Last episode, everyone thought Kim had relapsed. This episode, she overslept and everyone thought that she was actually dead in her hotel room. I think what she was experiencing was some serious jetlag, which is completely understandable, but also clearly impossible for her to manage. Not to mention, she fell apart like a 5-year-old when she was late to dinner. Also, what kind of pills does one take to keep one sober? I'm very confused by this. If anyone has any ideas, please sound off in the comments below.
Best Dressed: Yolanda
Yolanda's simple, monochromatic outfits honestly worked in the City of Light. I really expected more from Lisa here but I can't deny it -- Yolanda looked the best throughout the episode and it was nice to see her ditch the Hermes belt! Not to mention, I'm obsessed with the black dress she bought (assuming it's the one she was shown trying on with black lace).
Worst Dressed: Faye, always.
She wasn't even in the episode tonight but wherever she was on those days, I'm sure she was dressed worse than anyone we saw on TV.
Least Popular: Lisa and Kim
Lisa upset Kim, Kyle and was "annoying" Yolanda. I think Madame Vanderpump is quite wonderful but she was a little harsh with Kim who was CLEARLY out of sorts all episode. But Kim is really the worst for sh*t talking Kyle to Lisa, and then sh*t talking Lisa to Kyle, which just resulted in the Lisa and Kyle trying to sort their problems out on the top of the Eiffel Tower -- which is really the strangest place for such a conversation. Also can we discuss how windy it was up there? And why it seemed so cold in Paris in July?
Cutest Couple: Ken and Mauricio
I did not think watching two grown men tour Paris via segway would prove entertaining, but then Ken sort of shimmied his hips from side to side while scooting around and I almost spit out my drink. Did you see his gold belt?! Pretty sure he borrowed that from Lisa.
Lamest Couple: Kyle and Mauricio
If I see that "Love Lock" bridge on one more American reality TV show I honestly don't know what I'll do. Last night's episode of "Kim and Kourtney Take Miami" featured Kourtney and Scott doing the same thing on the same bridge in the same city and fjfkd;ajfk;adj. And according to this piece in the New York Times, some Parisians aren't exactly thrilled that tourists keep putting locks on their bridges!
Best One Liner: Yolanda
"Lisa is kind of annoying me because she keeps pulling people aside to talk about Kim and Kim is right there!"
Yes, Yolanda. This is called "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," where women talk about each other with each other in front of each other and then yell at each other for talking behind each others' backs. Try to keep up.
Voice Of Reason: Brandi
This SHOCKED me but in tonight's episode, Brandi was calm and measured in her responses. When Kim was breaking down before dinner, she told Lisa to stay away and give her space. Then she explained that Kim was likely feeling like her jetlag was being mischaracterized as relapsing, which could be very hurtful. These comments all made way too much sense and were greatly appreciated, though no one listened to her.
And there we have it! What did you think of tonight's episode? Did I leave anything out? Do you agree with the poll? Sound off in the comments below!
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
