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.

Was the opening of Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant, Sur, the most dramatic party in the history of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
The newly renovated space was gorgeous, and we can only assume that the food and drinks were delightful. But Lisa's event became a minefield of emotions thanks to three guests, both invited and uninvited.
First the uninvited: Lisa's former houseguest Cedric showed up unannounced, apparently hoping to make up after an off-camera fight last year that turned the best friends into enemies. Lisa was polite but pointed when asking him to leave.
Then, Kim Richards showed up with her boyfriend, Ken. Kyle hadn't seen her sister since their fight in Hawaii, so it was bound to be awkward. But with Kim acting out of sorts, locking herself in the bathroom and telling Kyle she wanted out of her relationship, the sisters' sit-down became a tearful spectacle.

Kim Richards got some sisterly support from Kathy Hilton over dinner Wednesday at celebrity hotspot Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills.
It was the first public outing for Richards, 47, since she left rehab earlier in the week.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was seen smiling as she and her older sister, 52, exited the restaurant, looking happy and healthy after completing a 30-day program for treatment of alcohol abuse and other issues.

Kim Richards is out of rehab, a source close to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells PEOPLE.
Richards, 47, started treatment in December for alcohol abuse and other "serious issues." It was not the first time she had been admitted to rehab.
Just last week, Richards' sister and Real Housewives costar, Kyle, told people Kim was doing "really well" with her treatment.
During the most recent season of Real Housewives, Richards exhibited odd behavior that she said was caused by a combination of prescription medications.

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."

More real-life drama for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Kim Richards has entered rehab.
Multiple sources have confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Richards, 47, is seeking treatment.
On last season's finale, Richards battled it out with her sister Kyle, who called her an alcoholic.
In October, new costar Brandi Glanville accused Kim of being "wasted out of her f---ing mind" during a game-night episode. Kim strongly denied it during a shouting match that became one of the show's biggest fights so far this season.
