The real housewives of Beverly Hills starts where we last saw them, at Sur, with Brandi and Joyce still yelling at each other. When the show begins though, Brandi’s curses turn to tears and Yolanda escorts her out of the restaurant. Joyce continues to talk trash about Brandi, calling her a bully over and over, but the entire crew sticks up for her.
Kinglsey comes home to Kim, he knows how to sit, lay, and breathe out of a muzzle. Kingsley 1, Kim 0.
Joyce and Kyle go golfing, Joyce figures out Brandi 3 steps- 1. She plans her attack, 2. She throws out the f-bomb, and 3. She cries to get the sympathy. But Joyce doesn’t feel any sympathy towards her. If Brandi says hi to Joyce, she will recognize her, but if Brandi ignores her, Joyce will ignore her right back! Take that Brandi!
Yolanda goes to Brandi’s house, not to criticize, but to assist. Brandi confesses her hard times, missing her puppy, missing her children, having issues with her husband, but Yolanda strongly states that using the f word is not an attractive way for Brandi to communicate her issues.
Carlton and her husband go to the tattoo shop, where she gets a pentagram with her kids name in their handwriting tattooed on the back of her neck. More importantly, she calls herself a pus**y for complaining about the pain.
Lisa, of course, is all business, going shopping for her new restaurant. Why is it so hard to not be in love with her?
Brandi brings her black friend to Kyle’s charity event, we’re not saying it, but if we were, we’d say thank God she’s not actually racist. They arrive to Kyle’s shop before Joyce, and when Joyce finally arrives we see Brandi’s heart rate literally rise. They avoid conflict even when in the same dressing room.
Jamie Lee Curtis presents Kyle with the First Family award. Kyle and her husband donated $100,000 to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. We also find out that Kyle worked with Jamie Lee Curtis on Halloween.
Lisa invites Joyce to her home, and Joyce actually goes. Lisa’s opinion of Joyce has slowly shifted through out the season, she now tells us that she thinks Joyce isn’t a bad girl, that they got off to the wrong start.
And just like that, our opinion of Lisa begins to shift, downward.

Singer/songwriter Vanessa Carlton has scrapped a series of upcoming gigs as she recovers from "intense nerve pain" following an ectopic pregnancy. The A Thousand Miles singer was set to hit the road later this month (Nov13) but she has now cancelled the first dates and rescheduled three others until February (13).
Announcing the news on her Facebook.com page on Tuesday (05Nov13), Carlton revealed she was "diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy" after a concert on 15 October (13).
She adds, "In my case it was a fallopian pregnancy (the embryo settled in my tube, which is the width of a straw). This is not considered a viable pregnancy because the fetus cannot develop, and it is a high-risk situation for the mother because of the potential for tubal rupture and internal bleeding."
Her doctors caught the condition early, and gave her a mild dose of chemotherapy to "hopefully shrink the pregnancy and save my tube" but the tube started to rupture last week (beg28Oct13) and she began to experience "internal bleeding".
In the candid Facebook post, the 33-year-old star reveals her right fallopian tube had to be surgically removed, and on Tuesday (05Nov13) she started suffering "intense nerve pain in one of my incisions".
She says, "I was all set to fly to Vancouver on Wednesday but, alas, I am not ready yet... I need to stay close to my doctors and the hospital in case this initial pain turns into something more serious."
Addressing her scrapped tour dates, Carlton adds, "Gimme a couple more days, I'll be ready."
She is hoping to resume the tour on 13 November (13) in San Francisco, California.

He tells In Touch Weekly, "We took walks on the beach, watched the sun set and played golf. It was incredibly relaxing and served as a wonderful opportunity for us to take the time to really appreciate and enjoy this last part of the pregnancy."
Angela adds, "It was absolutely heavenly."
The pair wed last October (12).

The French hotel where Grace Kelly and Cary Grant filmed scenes for their romantic thriller To Catch A Thief was at the centre of a jewellery heist on Sunday (28Jul13). An exhibition featuring diamonds from jeweller Leviev was being held in the lobby of the Carlton Hotel in Cannes when thieves struck, making off with an estimated $53 million (£34 million) haul in what is allegedly the second-largest heist in France.
A Cannes police spokesman said, "A full and urgent operation is under way to catch the culprit and recover these jewels. Thieves see Cannes as rich pickings."
The plush hotel provided the setting for Alfred Hitchcock's 1955 film about a cat burglar prowling the French Riviera and is also where the movie's star Kelly met her future husband Prince Rainier of Monaco.
The Cannes Film Festival was hit by a spate of jewellery thefts earlier this year (13).
Amanda Bynes is facing a hefty bill for damages amid allegations she trashed a hotel room in New York City just days before she was hospitalised on a mental health order. The Hairspray star was taken into custody in California for an involuntary mental evaluation, also known as a 5150 hold, on Monday (22Jul13) after she allegedly tried to start a fire on a driveway, and her parents are battling to be granted a conservatorship so they can take control of her affairs.
It has now emerged that Bynes has been accused of trashing a room at the luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel in New York City last week (ends21Jul13). Editors at TMZ.com claim Bynes was asked to leave the premises after she was allegedly caught smoking in her room and they have published pictures which appear to show the damage.
The snaps, purportedly of the room where Bynes stayed, show trails of ash scattered all over the place, while the room is also covered in trash. A fire alarm is also depicted wrenched from the ceiling.
The website reports hotel staff are tallying up a bill for the damages.
Bynes reportedly checked out of the hotel just hours before she boarded a plane to California. She is expected to remain in hospital for up to two weeks.
