We're still reeling from last week's dramatic episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Apparently in the land where surgically altered faces trump moveable ones, a girl can't get dinner without a side of drama. Hopefully it's at least low-fat!
Reflecting on all the cous-cous laden drama at yet another one of Kyle Richard's dinner parties from hell (should we start rating them worst to most worst?) the ladies of the RHOBH are taking to their Bravo blogs to explain what exactly was happening!
"Heading into this next dinner party, I have a lot on my plate having just been served with papers from Adrienne Maloof's high-powered lawyer who asked me to either never have an opinion on or defend myself against Adrienne and Paul again or to prepare for a court battle.
"I'm still unclear why it is OK for Adrienne (or her cook) to come after me and my family, but the second I fight back I'm served with lawyer papers. At this point most of the ladies don't know the entire story of what went on between Adrienne, and but as we watch further they will see it unfold."

"All was good in the hood, until Mauricio [Umansky] decided to come after me for something that has absolutely nothing to do with him. He didn't nearly have all the information and in what world does a married man and a father of four daughters have a go at a single mother at a dinner party?"
"Thank you to Ken and Lisa [Vanderpump] for stepping in and trying to put a stop to it all. I so very appreciate it, but as we have learned many of times before I can and do defend myself! Oh and listen up "Mo" no one is perfect — not even you — but you don't see me coming after you! Maybe it's just not my business to attack you for something that has NOTHING to do with me."
Not agreeing that Mauricio should shut it is Adrienne. Who I guess forgot her oft used mantra of last season: "Friends don't sue friends."
"I want to sincerely thank Mauricio for stepping in on my behalf. I admire his sensibility and his level headedness. Mauricio has always been a gentleman and the voice of reason amongst the husbands," Adrienne writes.
"I've heard from others that Brandi is sorry for what she said, but I have yet to hear it from her directly. If anyone should be upset in this situation, it should be me. During this episode, I was in New York on business and once again, all of the talking went on behind my back. . .it's hurtful."
"Mauricio thank you so much for having my back. . .Like my father, you are man of integrity." That just left a big ol' flavor of ew in my mouth, but whatever!
And of course because well she married the man, Kyle is giving her two cents about why Mauricio reacted so strongly
and why she's officially never throwing a party again.
"Unfortunately, the viewers don't know what Brandi said. If they did AND Adrienne hadn't hired a lawyer, people would see this in a very different light," Kyle begins. Of course, rumor has it Brandi revealed that Adrienne's children were born via surrogate.
"A lot of people comment that others shouldn't get involved. EVERYONE is involved in this mess. Just like everyone has been involved in all the problems that we have gone through these last three years of following our lives."
"I have NEVER seen Mauricio like we all saw him in last night's episode. He is always the calm one in any situation. However, he felt strongly about the subject matter. Adrienne and Paul stopped socializing with the group after what Brandi said. Mauricio and Paul are good friends and he was hearing from Paul the pain that they were going through. Mauricio felt that a phone call would benefit Paul, Adrienne, AND Brandi. That is how he deals with problems — directly."
"Lisa and Ken were no longer friends with Adrienne and Paul and Mauricio was not friends with Brandi. It's natural they would each want to protect the people that they are friends with. It was upsetting on so many levels. I wanted Mauricio and Ken to stop because they are also friends and usually the voice of reason when we are having problems."
Kyle promises "our dinner continues next week." Oh no!
And finally, a bit of nonsense concerning LeAnn Rimes. Adrienne isn't the only person furious at Brandi for her comments!
LeAnn really needs to get a career again.
Responding to all the recent problems the wife and former wife of Eddie Cibrian have been having – and the on-going twitter wars – LeAnn is speaking out to ET's Nancy O'Dell.
What did Nancy do to deserve that?
LeAnn calls the twitter war a "very one-sided war" and lambastes the mother of Eddie's two children as "ridiculous" and "transparent."
LeAnn believes Brandi is using her to "continue her career. That's the transparency for me. Sorry, if you want to be real honest, I'll be honest."
LeAnn says despite all the issues with Brandi she is still committed to her step-sons. "My heart overflows with love for those two boys, and also because they're my husband's children, I look at them and they are two little spitting images of my husband. They're with us half the time — I am never going to let a child walk into my house and not feel the love that they feel at their mom's house. … I'm going to be a part of that love, that intense love."
"I hope we can work it out. Life would be a lot calmer for everyone," she insists.
Of course, LeAnn's actions speak louder than words – she was spotted wearing an angelfish T-shirt today walking around LA. Remember Brandi claimed Eddie's friends refer to LeAnn as "angelfish" because she sings like an angel, but drinks like a fish.
“LeAnn does everything she can to draw attention to herself and she made that t-shirt because she knew it would get people talking,” a source dishes.“Of course she tried to pretend like someone sent it to her, but that’s not the case. She’s out of her mind!”
The source adds, “LeAnn purposely wore that t-shirt knowing it would fuel the feud with Brandi.”
In response to LeAnn's interview, Brandi tweeted:
