'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Recap: Mauricio Should Have Stayed Out of Brandi Glanville & Adrienne Maloof's Business

Mauricio Umansky Kyle Richards and Taylor ArmstrongThis week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we picked up where we left off last week with Brandi Glanville telling Mauricio Umansky to shut the f*ck up. They went back and forth a bit before Kyle Richards finally commanded her husband to stop it. She should have told him a tad bit sooner.

Ken Todd continued sticking up for Brandi while Taylor Armstrong tried once again to make it all about her. "I’ve been through anything anyone here has been through times 10 ..." Snore. Even Camille Grammer had enough. “It’s just so Taylor, to be like it’s all about me,” she told the cameras. And we're so over Taylor.

As Brandi tried to leave the restaurant, Mauricio stopped her and tried to tell her it wasn’t personal. Um, WHAT?! How in the hell is it not personal when he just called her out in front of a group of people for what she said about Adrienne Maloof?

He totally tore her apart, and then had the gall to tell her it wasn't personal. Was he admitting it was all about business (anticipated or otherwise)? Even if that's the case, he certainly made it personal without knowing all the facts. "I don't know what I don't know about, and that's the truth," he said. Uh, yeah.

“It felt personal,” Brandi told him. Ken then piped in and called him a typical male, which Kyle immediately felt the need to correct. “Ken, my husband is anything but a typical man,” she told him. The fact that Mauricio actually liked the headband she wore to the art gallery opening later certainly backed that statement up (did ANYone else think that was a good look for her?).

Kyle and Mauricio then had Adrienne and Paul over for dinner. They had been away as they “needed a break from Brandi’s toxicity.” Mauricio made it very clear that he'd been sticking up for them, and also had to point out that he “didn’t even flinch” when she told him to shut the fuck up. Big man. Is it just me, or is Mauricio becoming pretty annoying?

Kyle is the queen of trying to stay neutral and trying to keep everyone liking her (and her husband’s business), but Mauricio very definitely picked a side here, yet he’s still trying to pander to both sides. Why is it he felt the need to get involved again?

At the big art gallery opening, after Yolanda Foster did some ridiculous negotiating (not as ridiculous as her telling the moving man he needed to go home and learn English, but still quite ridiculous), Mauricio tried to make amends with Ken. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when he went up and handed him a bottle of gin. Ken was still high after being surrounded by the glamazon beauties with their boobs in his face and seemed utterly confused as to why Mauricio was giving it to him. “I don’t like it,” he told him. Then he almost left without it, and Mauricio had to remind him to take it.

As Lisa Vanderpump was leaving, she ran into Mauricio. When he asked her what was up, she said "a lot," but that she didn't have time to discuss it then. Mauricio then acted shocked that she would have any sort of problem with him. Maybe that portal into another dimension at Kim's house sucked him away for a bit, but of course she has a problem after he attacked her girl Brandi like that.

Next week some of the ladies are headed to Vegas, which should be interesting. The final lineup of who's in wasn't quite firmed up, but I'm feeling pretty confident it won't include Adrienne. When she and Brandi shall finally meet is the big question, though even then I'm not sure it will provide the answer we all really want -- what the hell did Brandi say about Adrienne?

Oh yeah, and Paris Hilton showed up. Random.

What did you think of Mauricio telling Brandi it wasn't personal?
