All hell broke loose on Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills during a wine tasting at a fabulous Malibu beach house.

With embattled newbie Brandi Glanville playing hostess, Camille Grammer and Taylor Armstrong came face to face after the tea party, where Camille exposed Taylor's abusive relationship with estranged husband Russell, who committed suicide in August.

Though they tried to avoid each other, as the wine flowed Camille's friend Dedra confronted Taylor for ignoring Camille's apologies and not being a friend. Emotions were high and the confrontation quickly turned into an out-of-control screaming match. (Watch the clip above.)

Kim Richards's Bizarre Behavior Caused by Prescription Drugs

The rumors can be put to rest.

Apparently Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards's slurred speech and strange behavior are a result of the combination of medications she's taking, not illegal drugs or alcohol, according to her costar, Dr. Paul Nassif.

On Monday's episode, during a consultation with Adrienne Maloof's plastic surgeon husband, Richards, 46, revealed she's been taking the anti-anxiety medication Lexapro, the antidepressant Trazadone, and Topamax, an anti-seizure medication which can be used to treat alcoholism.

"I'm glad you told me this, because now it all makes sense," Nassif tells her. "[The combination] is going to make you slur the words a little bit. It's going to make you out of it."

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Celebrate Premiere in N.Y.C.

Goodbye Beverly Hills – and hello New York City!

As they rev up for season 2 of their Bravo reality show, three of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars – Kyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump – decamped to New York with their husbands in tow for several celebrations and some good old fashioned promotion.

On Sunday night, the ladies celebrated Maloof's 50th birthday at new eatery Beauty & Essex on Manhattan's Lower East Side. First, the three first browsed the antique shop in the restaurant's entryway, then Maloof grabbed some free champagne and headed up to her dinner party.

The next night, just as their show premiered with a slightly-reedited episode, the ladies, their husbands and Vanderpump's dog, Jiggy, dined at Stantion Social, and shared favorites including the French onion soup dumplings, chicken and waffles and a chocolate tasting. The trio also busied themselves by Tweeting fans who were discussing the season premiere.

PEOPLE's TV Critic Appraises The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Originally posted 09/06/2011 07:30AM

One of the most-anticipated season premieres of the fall, as well as the most unfortunate, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returned to Bravo Monday night, less than a month after the suicide of Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of Housewives castmate Taylor Armstrong.

His death provoked a good deal of debate among viewers, and possibly panic over at Bravo. And here we had the outcome.

The show started with the Housewives, minus Taylor, meeting at Adrienne Maloof's home and discussing the death, which they generally attributed to financial problems. It was like a salon of Victorian gentlewomen trying to allude to a scandal without having to rattle their teacups violently. (An actual photo of Russell might have helped.)

"[Taylor is] lovely and it's hitting her hard. The night before the memorial service, I had dinner with [Taylor's costars] Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards and we talked about it.
