The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was downright spellbinding Monday, as Carlton Gebbia cast a seemingly successful curse on Joyce Giraud after she doubted the self-proclaimed Wiccan's powers.
A day after Gebbia's annual R-rated pool party – a Playboy-esque affair filled with bikini-clad pole dancers, "three-way" candles and tequila shots – Yolanda Foster invited the wives over to help make art to decorate her daughter's room when she leaves for college.
But Gebbia preferred to talk about Kyle Richards instead of painting.
It was all about making a mark on Monday's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as Carlton Gebbia got some new ink while Jamie Lee Curtis and Kyle Richards left an indelible impression on Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
Camille Grammer doesn't have to worry about her ex anymore.
Lisa Vanderpump's attempt to mend fences between Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud with a reconciliatory dinner at Sur failed miserably on Monday's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, with the two nearly breaking bones instead of bread.
"There's this whole one-up thing … everything's a competition," Glanville said before the dinner. "She has to be the center of attention. It's exhausting."
Glanville, 40, attempted to reach out to Giraud, 38, by discussing common friends, but the former beauty queen wasn't accepting her friendship bouquet.
"We have two mutual friends. They don't speak highly of you," said an irked Glanville, words that prompted a fight so loud that Vanderpump's waitstaff couldn't help but watch.
Did the Palm Springs desert air help to thaw the freeze between long-feuding frenemies Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump?
Relations have long been frosty between The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members, but Monday night's episode hinted that the duo might finally be ready to bury the hatchet.
When Vanderpump asked Kyle why she looked upset after fighting with Brandi Glanville during their girls-only weekend in Palm Springs, Kyle tearfully walked over for a hug as Vanderpump showered her with maternal affection.
"I know I know, it's everything that's going on right now," she said soothingly, referring to persistent rumors that Kyle's husband, Mauricio Umansky, has been unfaithful.
Brandi Glanville offered an apology of sorts for what some have called racist remarks she made to fellow Housewife Joyce Giraud on a Palm Springs road trip captured on Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Glanville, calling in to Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live talk show on Monday, said her comments were "definitely inappropriate."
"It was definitely not sensitive and I apologize to anyone I offended," Glanville, 40, said by phone. "My friends and I joke with each other this way and they are from all different backgrounds so, I'm sorry. I guess TV is not ready for the real Brandi, but should I censor myself?"
Blame it on the heat.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills headed to the desert on Monday's episode for some sun and fun, but ended up burning each other instead.
Joyce Giraud organized a girls weekend to Palm Springs, and the wives arrived at the sprawling mountainside compound ready to relax.
But a lazy afternoon by the pool dampened their spirits before the vacation had even begun.
