‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Season 5 Recap: A Never-Ending Battle Between Brandi and Kyle over Kim

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (RHOBH) Season 5 Episode 12 “Drama Queens” aired last Feb. 3, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo. The episode kicks off with Kyle Richards and some homosexual friends planning for a gay mixer party. Read on to know what are their plans.

One of Kyle’s friends suggests to have a game as soon as the guests arrive. Name tags will be put on the guests’ backs, and they must ask around to help them guess the celebrity’s name.


Meanwhile, Yolanda Foster is busy packing to travel with her husband David. She commends her husband to be so charitable that they have to get out of the country just for fundraising. She leaves her son Anwar and wishes him safety while they are away. She is still hoping for her son to have a fun time without them. She only reminds him to be careful with alcohol.

Talking about sons, Lisa Vanderpump feels sad that her foster son Max wants to know his heritage. She does not want him to be taken away from her. She is torn between making him stay and letting him go. She tries so hard to stop the tears.

Brandi Glanville visits Kim Richards’ home. Kim tells her that her hospital experience was “so painful.” She says that she was on anti-inflammatory, steroids and three different kinds of antibiotics. She worries that she is in a terminal condition already. She tells Brandi that Kyle visited her in the hospital. Brandi slightly shakes her head. Kim says that her condition has something to do with hernia. Then she coughs painfully.

In a flashback, Kim told Kyle in the hospital that she did not remember anything at Eileen’s driveway. She said that she took a pill for the pain that time. Kyle said that her sister made a bad choice, but she was thankful that Kim acknowledged her mistake.

Back to the present, Brandi is so surprised to hear that Kim’s pill must have been for cancer. She tells her that she can be allergic to it. Kim says that she is disappointed that her own sister is not caring too much of her predicament. She remembers Kyle scolding her for taking so long in the bathroom of somebody’s house. She knows her stay there was for her to calm down. It was because she was really not feeling well. Brandi tells her that she really just wanted to protect her.

“You’re better off with me than her,” said Brandi to Kim.

Brandi hates Kyle for saying in a phone call long ago that “it’s just Kim.” Kim says that she cannot feel her sister’s concern and support sometimes. However, in the flashback, she thanked Kyle for being a good sister. But, Kyle got mad at her for comparing a sister to a best friend. In the present, Brandi insists that she has always been there for Kim unlike Kyle. She tells Kim that she needs to surround herself with people she can trust. She makes herself as an example. Kim invites Brandi to go with her at Kyle’s gay mixer party to “break the ice.” Brandi jokes that she is going to break something on Kyle. In the flashback, Kim told Kyle that no one could ever come between them.

Max arrives at his parents’ house. Lisa jokes that Max’s biological parents should be rich and famous, so he will not have to make an effort in earning money. Max asks for his real name to log in a website about ancestry. Lisa agrees to type his name on the text box, but she forces him to stay away. Max assures her that he just wants to know his heritage and does not care about who are his real parents. He says he is just curious on what country did his parents come from. Ken butts in and says that Max’s father is from Japan and his mother is from Nigeria.

While Kyle is having fun in her party, Brandi and Kim suddenly enter the club. Kyle feels awkward. She says that she organized the party in the first place to make her forget about Brandi even for just a while. Kim approaches Kyle to greet her. Kyle tells her that she should have warned her that Brandi is coming.


Lisa thinks Brandi is too confident to show up. Eileen thinks Kim is rude for bringing the party planner’s enemy. Kyle tells her other friends that she must try not to be friends with Brandi again.  She comes at Brandi and immediately points out that she must not interrupt two sisters. Brandi says that she and Kim always talk to each other about problems. Kyle wants to know what they were talking about. After being quiet ever since the current confrontation, Kim scolds Kyle because her question is too personal.

Kyle insists that Brandi is not invited. Brandi reminds her that they have planned the party in the past. Kyle asks Kim why she has changed so much when they just talked yesterday. Kim tells her that they have talked earlier in the morning while Kyle yells at her that it was yesterday. She worries that her sister cannot even identify what day it is. Brandi yells at Kyle for scratching her in the previous confrontation. Kyle says that she was wearing a spiked bracelet. Brandi warns her to stay away because she is slowly losing her temper. The other housewives are getting nervous about what is going to happen.

Brandi tells Kim that they need to go home. Kyle wants Kim to stay. She tells her to never trust Brandi. She remembers Brandi hurting some close people in the past like the Vanderpumps. Brandi interrupts the sisters again. Kim tells her that she wants to stay for a while. Kyle is disappointed that her own sister is not defending her. She thinks Brandi is using Kim to turn against her. She gets exasperated with her sister’s decisions that she curses her with the F word and two middle fingers and walks away.

What is next for the sisters’ relationship? Catch the next episode on Feb. 10, 2015.
