Monday night's "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" was one of those leading-up-to-something-exciting episodes that definitely set the stage for what's to come next week.
With that said, some OMG-worthy moments did take place, so let's get up to speed.
As if we needed another reason to love Kyle Richards' husband, Mauricio Umansky, he made us smile when he joined Paul Nassif (we love you too, Paul!) in a "Walk a Mile" benefit for Taylor Armstrong, who is an activist for domestic violence. The gents actually had to walk a mile in high heels.
As great as all that sounds, the main event of the night was Portia's birthday party, which obviously revolved around the drama between the ladies instead of Richards' daughter turning 2.
Kyle remained neutral on all the beef between the women, and hoped that a child's party would be a good place to squash everything. Unfortunately, she was the only one that felt that way.
Lisa Vanderpump came early and left early before she had to face Adrienne Maloof, who was eager to hash things out with her former neighbor, but clearly didn't get a chance to -- at least not yet (yes, that was a hint for next week).
Taylor completely ignored Brandi Glanville, which was super awkward but also expected. Either way, Brandi tried to stick it out for Kyle and Portia, even though she kept saying she had massive anxiety since her BFF Lisa wasn't there to keep her company. You know who was, though? Camille Grammer! We missed that lady.
Brandi continued to suck it up, but once Kim Richards walked in, Brandi was out, and apologized to Camille and Kyle via text.
Once Glanville left, she became the topic of conversation when Armstrong was telling Kim about Brandi's "I slept with all of Beverly Hills" comment from last week's episode. And that comment will live on to next week, and probably forever after that.
New "Housewives" star Yolanda Foster didn't make it to the party, but we did get to meet her outrageously beautiful 17-year-old daughter Gigi, who followed in her mother's footsteps in becoming a model. Hey, with genes like that, can you blame her?
Foster accompanied Gigi on a photo shoot, and made sure to let us know during the one-on-one interview that she doesn't get too involved, and then proved otherwise in the footage. Oh, and she also mentioned that she does not like when her daughter's eye makeup is "Chinese-looking."
Looking forward to see what else Yolanda's got to say? Yeah, us too.
