Kim and Kyle Richards: Are They Loyal Sisters or Mean Girls?
10/18/2011 AT 11:00 AM EDT
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star siblings showed why they make explosive TV on Monday night's episode when they came close to blows with new costar Brandi Glanville during a game night gone horribly wrong.
After Kim muttered insults and Kyle laughed out loud at her expense, Brandi accused Kim of being "wasted out of her f––ing mind."
That set Kim and Kyle off. During the altercation, Kim called her a "god– b–," "pathetic" and a "slut pig." Kyle told her to "watch her mouth," and questioned her parenting skills for having seen her little boy urinate in the grass at a recent pool party.
"I really don't think it's a bad thing," Brandi said of her son's behavior.
"Well, I'm sure where you're from it's not," replied Kyle, who later added, "You have no class. You're trashy and you are classless."
That sent Brandi into a shrill rage of tears, bleeped insults and accusations of crystal meth use by Kim. Then, she told Kyle, "I will f––ing kill you."
Thankfully, Taylor Armstrong stepped in and stopped the fight before it became physical. "It's just ridiculous," Taylor said. "They're going to what – beat each other up at this point?"
Things cooled down and Brandi decided to leave, but first had to find her crutches, which had been hidden earlier in the night by Kim. "I wanted to be the grownup, to be the bigger person," Brandi said, "and then I failed."
But whose fault was the fight? Did Brandi instigate Kim and Kyle's response? Or did the Richards sisters provoke the new girl? Leave your thoughts in the comments below:
