As Taylor and Russell Armstrong’s relationship seems to crumble, the housewives finally seem to be making attempts to all get along.

The Nov. 28 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills opens with the extravagant planning of Lisa Vanderpump’s daughter Pandora‘s wedding. Famous Hollywood wedding planner, Kevin Lee, makes an appearance on the episode, voicing his fabulous ideas to try to enhance Pandora’s wedding in the most luxurious ways possible.

Taylor and Russell Armstrong finally choose to seek marriage counseling in an attempt to save their relationship.

Taylor speaks about the plans that she and Russell have decided on. “We’re gonna do everything we can to keep it together, or we’re going to figure out how we’re not going to be together in the most successful way possible,” she says.

Russell agrees and admits, “This whole process has brought all this to the forefront… without counseling it’s like you’re going out of control.”

As the marriage counseling session begins to look promising, Russell cuts the session short and announces he must leave in order to go to a meeting. Oddly enough, he later meets up with Taylor and tells her his meeting was cancelled. Suspicious? Seems so.

Meanwhile, Kyle Richards spends the day with Brandi Glanville, and has newly decided to give up on the fighting that has ranked their relationship. Brandi admits to Kyle she misses her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, and discusses her past relationship with him.

In an attempt for a fun and exciting ladies’ night, Brandi offers the idea of hosting a party in which “a porn star teaches you how to give BJ’s.” Kyle is not too fond of the idea, and instantly dismisses it.

The entire episode revolves around Adrienne Maloof‘s fashion show that is designed to show off her new shoe collection. Her signature mark on all the shoes will feature a diamond “because what woman doesn’t love diamonds?”

All the housewives attend the show, and upon their arrival, Adrienne pulls Lisa aside and tells her she was offended Lisa chose to throw Pandora’s bachelorette party at Planet Hollywood instead of at the Palms Resort and Casino, which her family is associated with. Lisa explains her affiliation with a friend associated with Planet Hollywood, and Adrienne accepts her apology.

Taylor attends the event with Russell and remains nervous at the thought of seeing Camille Grammer for the first time since their last fight. The ladies decide this is not the best time to settle the matter, and instead act cordially to each other.

All the housewives enjoy the show, but are disappointed that Adrienne’s shoes are not on display as much as they should be, due to all the long dresses worn by the models.

Overall, it was a drama-free event for these usually crazy housewives.

Somehow, a drama-free future does not seem to be in store for these housewives, though. How long do you think these cordial housewives friendships will last before an all-out war, HollywoodLifers?

taylor is f’ed up, for sure. i think she has a really manipulative streak, can throw on the tears and “low self esteem” show for acceptance at the drop of the hat, and in the next, be pulling “mean girl” stunts. she’s atrociously manipulative, but also, so psychologically damaged and messed up that i don’t really feel “out for her.” i don’t quite feel sorry for her, but watching her scares me b/c she seems so unstable. at times, she also seems high on prescription drugs a la kim. i don’t know. i don’t know why anyone thinks that rich people have it all and a charmed life— they’re just as messed up as the rest of us. sorry, more messed up.

I agree completely. Taylor just seems like she is lying and clearly just is in it for the lifestyle. Why throw that crazy bday party when she knew they were broke…nuts. No sympathy at all.
