Another day in Paris, another glimpse into the skewed world of our favorite Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In this episode we saw Kyle in love, Brandi and Yolanda in workout gear, Kim back to her old tricks and Lisa calling her out on it. We also saw the crew navigate Paris on the three best modes of transporation: cartwheels, Segways and sky-high heels.
And what a glorious trip it was! The ladies (and a few of their lads) shopped, lunched, cooked and bickered—they even went to sight-seeing! Here are some of the things we learned in Paris, from the very bottom of the Seine to the tippy top of the Eiffel Tower:
1. In order to look like Yolanda, it takes one part green shi**, one part jogging.
2. Cartwheels are fun!
3. The key to any girl’s heart is a fancy new combination lock.
4. Ken prefers to carry Giggy like a sparkly evening clutch.
5. If Kim ever has Lisa and Ken over for dinner, there must also be a camera crew in attendance.
6. Giggy is the only man who can confidently pull off crushed velvet.
7. Kim not only loves turtles and livings rooms, but also bicycles. And rain.
8. Ken is feisty when he’s hungry.
9. Sneakers are for losers. Cobblestones are best traveled in stilettos.
10. Yolanda is the only middle-aged woman who can successfully pull off pigtail buns.
11. Always bring a white power suit and a spare lock on vacation.
12. Lisa is a pot-stirrer. And Kim calls the kettle black.
13. Duck carcasses as s0o0o cute!
14. Yolanda sounds like Holland. There’s a joke in there somewhere.
15. Mauricio and Ken are right: If only the women would put the past behind them like their husbands did, every conversation would be stiff, awkward and altogether uncomfortable.
16. The best way to butcher a duck is to let someone else do it.
17. Brandi knows how to make Rice Krispy Treats!
18. With all the cracks Yolanda makes about women who live in Beverly Hills, you’d think she’s forgotten she’s on a show specifically dedicated to them.
19. Kim not realizing she had cherries on her face was the single most devastating scene this season.
20. Kim and Brandi getting along is much more fun to watch than Kim and Brandi not getting along.
21. Mauricio buying Kim the purse she wanted was the single most beautiful scene this season.
22. Ken and Mauricio rode their Segways in style, but should’ve left the “WooHooing” to Vicki Gunvalson.
23. The ish between Kyle and Lisa will never be reconciled.
But in the words of Kim, “As long as he’s not quackin’ while they are awackin’, we’ll all be ok.”
