The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 Episode 6 Review: Compromising Positions

There's nothing like game night in Beverly Hills.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 Episode 6 brought back familiar faces like Camille and Kim, and delivered the drama.

On the Hot Seat - The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

The episode picks up right where we left off last week (and where I always want to be): at Camille Grammer's house. Dorit is still fighting with Eileen about discussing her mother's death at her dinner party, and the two cannot come to an agreement about what exactly was said.

Dorit thinks it is frustrating that she is dragged into the drama with Vanderpump and Eileen/Rinna, which is funny since she is the person who dragged herself into it. If she wants to blame anyone, she should blame her husband PK.

There also still seems to be a little bit of conflict with Erika and Dorit after pantygate, but the girls are going to try and play nice at game night at Kyle's house.

Remember the last time there was a game night on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? It involved Kyle and Kim hiding Brandi's crutches and accusations of crystal meth. Ah, the good ol' days.

What kind of games are these? Hunger games?


Kim Richards is back, and it's like seeing an old friend again. She's sober, but that didn't stop Bravo from showing the headline about her shoplifting from Target last year right before she tried to rip a security tag off of her dress. Old habits die hard, Kim? 

Meanwhile Eden is bringing Rinna crystals at lunch, so it's safe to say she might be watching too many reruns of The Hills and Spencer Pratt's snapchat.

Erika Jayne is finally ready to start filming her music video, and if it's anything like her performance of "XXpen$ive" on Watch What Happens Live last week, it is going to be epic. She makes me believe that age really is just a number.

Kyle is getting ready for game night, and she honestly thinks that it is going to go well. Kim is more realistic about the whole situation, so at least someone watches reruns.

This night is going to be different. We're going to have fun. We're having sushi, drinks, great food, friends and no... Brandi Glanville.


Eden is also sober, and I think it will be good for Kim to have a friend at a party where everyone else is chugging margaritas or drinking multiple glasses of wine at a time (I see you Dorit, and I have a whole new respect for you).

I guess we're at game night, so let the games begin.

Lisa Vanderpump

You could feel the tension the moment that Rinna walked into the room, and it took about thirty seconds for Kim to think that Rinna is rolling her eyes at her. The conflict between them is inevitable.


Can we get a bottle of rosé out here? And a funnel.


The real question is why did Kyle need to hire a "game night planner?" And is that a real job? It sounds like one of the professions on The Bachelor. He invented a game called "running charades," which is just charades but you run into a different room after you guess correctly. It turns out it was too difficult for Dorit. 

However, I will give him props for having them play a game called "the puppet game," given Rinna's history calling Vanderpump a puppet master. Touché, Cal.

Being on a team with Kim and Vanderpump... What would our name be? The Exorcist? A lot of spinning heads and green vomit.


Dorit is drunk and flirting with Eden, but the feelings are not reciprocated. Is anyone getting Carlton vibes from her? Minus the whole "I'm going to put a spell on you" thing.

I might take Erika home before I take Dorit home.


For the first time in Housewives history they successfully get through a few games, but the real games start when they sit back down at the table.

Eileen goes to Kyle and tells her that Dorit brought up her name at lunch and said she backed up her idea to give Erika the underwear gift. Kyle tells her not to bring her into it, and Dorit quickly gets defensive and points out that she was with her when she bought the "panties."

Personally, I think we're all getting really worked up about something that Erika doesn't seem all that worked up about.

Who cares whether Erika is wearing underwear or not? Who gives a shit? I'm not wearing panties.


Rinna, who has never not made a situation about her, shifts the conversation to Dorit's dinner party and the comments made about Rinna's father and Eileen's mother. Kim sees this as her moment to point out that Rinna and Eileen bring out the worst in each other, which does not sit well with Rinna.

Despite not having any real relevance to the conversation, Kim and Rinna start to fight about last season and Kim's comments about Harry Hamlin. Rinna quickly brings up Kim's arrest, and admits in her confessional "she went low, and instead of going high, I went low too." She low get sounds like Donald Trump.

Eden stepped in and pointed out that it is not healthy to fight the way the are, especially because Kim is a sober woman who should lead by example. Eden might be too reasonable for this show.

Rinna apologized to Kim, and I'm sure the two of them will be best friends now. Ha, I can't even type that with a straight face.

How does this game night rank compared to seasons past? Let us know in the comments, and don't forget you can watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online via TV Fanatic.
