Fans of Diem Brown knew her last moments on The Challenge would be heart-wrenching. They also knew Brown would not leave the show without her signature strength and passion.

Tuesday's episode of Battle of the Exes 2 saw Brown, 34, sidelined by the excruciating pain she would later learn was colon cancer. After an overnight stay, the pain returned, forcing her to be medically evacuated from the competition.

Accompanying shots of her flight from Panama to New York City, where she underwent surgery and months of treatment before dying on Nov. 14, Brown began her final words on the show: "I'm at a point in my life where I want to just live life."

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Why Was Kim Richards Acting 'Whackadoodle'?

Eileen Davidson organized a poker party on Tuesday's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and any time the wives have a game night you can bet it's not going to end well.

Things got off to shaky start at a spa day Kyle Richards organized.

"If Eileen can be in a van with Brandi Glanville after getting a glass of wine thrown in her face, I guess I can, too," said Lisa Vanderpump.

Things got shakier when a luncheon turned into wine tasting, something that made Richards and her sister, Kim – who entered rehab in 2012 and is now sober – uncomfortable.

Although he felt too afraid to speak out for many years, comedian Wayne Brady is opening up once more about his longtime struggle with depression.

After revealing to Entertainment Tonight in November that he suffered a "breakdown" on his 42nd birthday last June, Brady points to the difficulty men have with opening up about mood disorders in a patriarchal culture that demands they hide their feelings.

"It's difficult for men in general, I think, because of just the way that we're raised," says Brady in the video exclusive to PEOPLE above. "We feel any of the negative emotions or that dark cloud settle on you, and you feel like you need to cry out or speak to someone about it, and, 'Nope, I'm not gonna do that, because I'm a man.' "
