Kim is having a rough time in the new episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (RHOBH) Season 5 Episode 10 “House of Cards,” which aired last Jan. 20, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo.

The episode kicks off with the housewives drinking in the van. Everybody is going to the spa except Yolanda, who is in New York with her daughters. They are excited to have a massage, especially Rinna who calls herself a “pamper whore.”

After arriving in the location, the host tells the housewives that they must separate into two groups. Lisa is going to be with Brandi and Eileen. She worries that she will not feel comfortable at all because of Brandi. On the other hand, Rinna, Kim and Kyle are busy talking about Brandi’s weirdness. They worry about her. When the massage session was finished, Eileen says goodbye to go to work.

In New York, Yolanda is proud while watching Gigi cook. She is amazed that her daughter achieved so much in just one year. She is excited to see a magazine claiming that Gigi is the “icon” of her generation.

Back to Beverly Hills, lunch gets awkward for the housewives when an unexpected wine-tasting is introduced. Kim is fighting for her complete sobriety. Kyle is concerned. Kim goes out to talk to somebody on the phone.

Meanwhile, Bella arrives just in time while Yolanda and Gigi are having fun. Yolanda is choosing photos for Bella’s portfolio. Gigi helps in picking the right photos. She suddenly imitates Tyra Banks as she gives a photo to Bella.

In the van, the housewives are talking about their sexual fantasies. Rinna wants to have sex with Brad Pitt. Kyle likes to be a stripper. The women are repulsed with Brandi’s masochistic threesome fantasy. Lisa says she has no fantasies. Brandi defends herself that the other ladies have no more sexual impulses that becomes the reason for their husbands to cheat on them.

Kyle and Kim go to a restaurant. Kyle apologizes to her sister about the wine-tasting. Kim comforts her that she did not feel weird at all. She says the only thing that enraged her was there was not much food. The sisters laugh.

Eileen loves gambling with her husband. They are preparing a poker party.

Brandi and Kyle are having fun going to the party because they are already drinking in the car. However, Rinna is having the worst time heading to the party with Kim. She tells her that she is “pissy.” Kim answers that she is just “ornery.” Rinna asks her if she is drunk. Kim denies it. Rinna is not used to see Kim so “fucked up” because of her usual sweet self. She tells her that she feels sorry for her.

“Don’t fucking feel sorry for me,” Kim fires back.

When Rinna said that Kim is a “tough bitch” and a “good girl,” Kim becomes happy.  She keeps on cursing and gets so aggressive when she said that she wants to have sex with Rinna. Rinna gets scared.

While Lisa Rinna is having a disturbing trip, the other Lisa is having so much fun with her dog Giggy in an out-of-town trip.

Brandi and Kyle arrive at Eileen’s house. Brandi starts to compare the house’s design to “American Psycho.” Eileen concludes that Brandi is indeed weird. Kim and Rinna also arrive. Rinna is relieved Kim looks sober enough.

While Eileen’s husband are teaching them how to play poker, Kim keeps on cursing for no reason. Kyle keeps on asking questions about the game. Brandi tells her to stop acting stupid. Kyle says she is not.

“So you’re just stupid,” Brandi tells Kyle.

Kyle is controlling her anger. The other ladies are shocked. Brandi wins the mock game. Kyle notices that Kim is getting wild. Brandi catches Eileen’s attention when she said that she wants to have sex with Eileen’s husband. Overall, she wins the mock games. She boasts that she is the only non-actress yet she won. The other housewives try to be cool about it.

Kim insists that Kyle is jealous. Kyle walks out and goes inside the bathroom. Kim follows her inside. Kyle tells her that she is panicking and embarrassed. She asks her if she was drinking. Kim denies drinking, smoking and taking drugs. She admits taking “something from the doctor” for the “pain.”

Brandi escorts Kim outside to go home. Kim wants to go back and say goodbye to everyone. After kissing her sister goodbye, she suddenly fights with Kyle. As she walks out, Kyle is trying to know if what really bothers her sister. Brandi keeps on making her go away. After Kyle pushed Brandi, Brandi pushes her back in a more forceful way. Kyle has no choice but to cry as her sister is going out of Eileen’s house.
