"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" returned with everybody fighting! Brandi announced that Adrienne is suing her, while Kim confronted Kyle for her recent behavior. And Yolanda urged her cast mates to consider a crazy diet.
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" returned with a two-hour special. Brandi faced "the other woman," while Taylor's lawsuit came to a devastating end. And audiences still have no idea what Brandi said about Adrienne.
