Weeks before the first episode aired in September, the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was swathed in domestic drama after the suicide of Russell Armstrong.
This year, the Bravo cameras caught many of the ups and downs in the ladies' lives – tracking the marital problems of Taylor Armstrong and her late husband, the struggles of sisters Kyle and Kim Richards and the stresses as Lisa Vanderpump began planning her daughter's wedding, an event which was captured in Monday night's anticipated finale.
Joyous (and extravagant) as the event was, as the centerpiece of the finale, Pandora's nuptials managed to sideline the more pressing plot lines of the season. Largely missing from the episode were two of the show's biggest drama magnets: Kim and Taylor.

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.)

Taylor Armstrong has been through so much – physical abuse, the suicide of her estranged husband and the public drama of it all on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which played out on Monday's episode in a major way after she got into an intense fight with a friend of her costar Camille Grammer.
Now, she says, she wants to support someone else who is facing personal problems: her friend Kim Richards, who recently entered rehab.
"I adore Kim and I stand behind her," Armstrong told Andy Cohen Monday night on his Bravo talk show, Watch What Happens Live. "And if there's anything I can do to support her [I will]; but if she's getting healthy what more could we ask."

This season, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have rallied around cast member Taylor Armstrong in the wake of her estranged husband Russell's suicide, but things got ugly on Monday's episode when Camille Grammer revealed for the first time on the show that Russell had been physically abusive.
The revelation came after a spat between Taylor and Lisa Vanderpump, who confronted Taylor about not being invited to an awards luncheon the day before.
"I have bent over backwards since the day I met you to be kind to you," a highly-emotional Taylor shouted over tea in Lisa's sitting room. "And you have treated me so poorly that it is embarrassing."

They may have been married for 13 years, but Kelsey Grammer says his marriage to Camille Grammer was doomed from the start.
"Camille asked for a divorce really almost the first day we were married," the actor said during an appearance on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight Monday. "If you say you want a divorce enough times, you're going to get one."
"I think what I was trying to do was sell it to myself," he said of their relationship. "There was this small voice in the back of my head saying, 'This isn't going to work.' But I stuck to it."
Grammer, 56, had harsh words for his ex and her explosive stint on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
