Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on October 11, 2011 0 Comments

In Episode 6 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the mean girls have a new recruit and a new victim…except Brandi’s not playing.

Episode 6 starts with Taylor and Dana getting together to talk about the upcoming game night at Dana’s house and of course the conversation turns to the new girl, Brandi. Dana says she’s not sure Brandi is a good fit for the “group” and Taylor says she’s not ready to give up on Brandi just yet.

Kyle and Adrienne who meet for lunch and of course Brandi is a topic of conversation when Adrienne asks Kyle, “So what do you think of Brandi?” Kyle thinks Brandi uses words that are “tacky” and finds it appalling that Brandi didn’t correct her son when he peed on the grass at Adrienne’s barbecue. Adrienne, who is one of the most level-headed Housewives, says, “He’s four. He’s a boy. S*** happens.”

The third meet-up during this episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is Adrienne and Brandi meeting for cappuccino. Adrienne tells Brandi she needs to get thicker skin or she’s not going to make it in this group. Adrienne says the two need to somehow show the other cast members just how fun Brandi really is.

Game night has arrived. The tension is thick as Kyle, Brandi and Dana wait for the others to arrive. Adrienne can’t make it, which makes Brandi nervous since Adrienne is her only ally. Finally Taylor and Camille show up, but Kim is late as always. When she finally does arrive, she’s out of sorts and must go to the bathroom. While the other women wait for Kim yet again, Dana is trying hard to get on Camille’s good side. Taylor admits in her confessional that Dana is trying too hard to become friends with these women.

While in the bathroom, Kim tells Kyle she’s suffering from horrible anxiety, which may explain Kim’s erratic behavior; however, Brandi’s not buying it. She thinks Kim is either drunk or on drugs. Kyle clearly thought so too at one point since she took a swig of Kim’s coffee to make sure it didn’t contain alcohol.

The women decide to play a game of Celebrity and that’s when things really start to heat up. Dana creates team and puts Brandi on a team with Kim and Kyle. Kim, acting like a high school mean girl, “whispers” to Kyle she doesn’t want Brandi on their team because she doesn’t like her, even though this is her first time meeting her and Kim spent most of the night in the bathroom. Of course Kim’s whisper really wasn’t and Brandi overhears her and this sets the tone for the rest of the night. Later during the game, Kim hides Brandi’s crutches. If this was a joke among friends, it could have been funny; however, given the fact that Kim and Kyle were acting hostile towards Brandi, it didn’t come across as funny. It came across as just another petty, mean girl move.

Later in the game, the women decide to play Intelligence. Kyle tells Brandi, “Starting with you,” and it’s at this point Brandi’s had enough. She tells Kyle, “Bring it, b****.” Kyle asks, “Are you calling me a b****?” Brandi says yep, she is. All hell breaks loose when Kim and Kyle jump all over Brandi. Kim tells Brandi she’s dressed like a “ho.” Brandi tells Kim and Kyle she overheard what Kim said about her earlier in the night and, oh, yeah, Kim’s wasted. As if Dana hasn’t seemed quite pathetic enough the entire night, she pipes up in the middle of the fight to say, “Kyle, Brandi’s being mean, make it stop.”

In true Bravo style, Episode 6 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ends before the cat fight really gets going. Fans will have to wait until next week to see the end of this train wreck.

The only bright spot of the night is when Jason, Pandora’s boyfriend, informs everyone at dinner that he has asked Pandora to marry him. Lisa is emotional, but is over the top with happiness that the engagement has finally happened.

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