Things are a-moving and a-shaking on the most recent episode of ‘RHOBH.’ Taylor’s in ‘love,’ we get a plastic surgery reveal, and Brandi, Paul, and Adrienne face off yet again. Keep reading for the breakdown of yet another wild episode!

Hmm. So things got a little bit wacky on the Feb. 18 episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, huh? Taylor Armstrong jetted off to an unknown place with an unknown lover, Kim showed us her new face, and oh yeah — the fight between Brandi Glanville and Adrienne Maloof raged on. Let us recap!

What Happens At A Dinner Party…

Pop quiz — what’s more surprising: that Taylor randomly ditched out on the girls and hopped on a plane with a man who she’s in “love” with, or the fact that she left her daughter, Kennedy, at Kyle Richards’ house and TOTALLY DIDN’T REALIZE IT! The correct answer is both. Taylor’s surprise departure did give us this gem of dialogue though:

Kyle: You didn’t know Kennedy was at my house?

Taylor: No idea.

Ah, the things love makes us do! Later in the episode Taylor says she also doesn’t know when she’ll be seeing the new love of her life again after their sudden rendezvous vacay. So that’s nice.

On to the next one: new start, new nose. At least that’s how it goes for Kim. The reveal? Hey, that nose looks pretty good! Kim gets pretty much 10s from the peanut gallery and Adrienne “compliments,” “My husband would’ve done just as good a job!” She says that at least twice.

Hey, I’m proud of you Kim. It’s not easy to go out on a limb like that and literally show your face a week later.

The Roof Is On Fire

One minute the Maloofs are playing in the pool, and the next thing you know, the old Vanderpump manor across the street is in complete flames! The fire across the street — and let’s not downplay it, that was no small grease fire — stirs a little familial debate between Adrienne and husband Paul Nassif. Do you hop in a luxury SUV and get the heck outta there, or do you stay within the iron gates of your home and hope the wildfire doesn’t spread? We at HollywoodLife HOPE you are never put in a moral conundrum such as this.

Also, the cause of this enormous fire is unclear. But at the very least, thank goodness Ken and the rest of the Vanderpumps moved out a couple months ago!

All White Everything

This episode we get Kyle’s annual white party! And while the decorations — the balls are eggs and the Medusas are octopuses — didn’t quite go as planned, Kyle was hoping the party would go better — especially better than last year’s white party.

Watching the Maloofs ride in a limo to the party, dressed in white, talking about lawsuits was like watching Muhammed Ali walk into the ring before a boxing match. But we’ll get to that later.

Before the party gets out of hand, Brandi makes her first appearance of the episode with two wing-women — and she’s anxious and man-hungry. She sees a cute, dark-haired real estate agent who she describes her attraction for by saying, “He has a sexy gap in his teeth that I want to suck on.” Oh, of course!

Lisa complains about Adrienne’s self-tanner (which yeah, Adrienne’s legs were GOLDEN) staining her furniture, but that’s really just a warmup for Miss Maloof.

The White Party Gets Dark

Speaking of — Paul, cheeseburger in hand, scares the crap out of Brandi. She still has PTSD from the last fight. Brandi “doesn’t want it to get ugly.”

But it sort of does. When Brandi tries to get Adrienne to talk “calm, very calmly,” it goes almost exactly the opposite of that. Basically, too many lawyers were hired, and Brandi, Adrienne, and Paul all raise their voices at each other at the same time. But when Brandi whips out emails proving that Bernie has been selling stories to Radaronline.com, the room gets pleasingly silent.

Much of the point of this most recent feud gets lost in the clutter — did the Maloofs file a lawsuit or not!? Tell us!!!

After some time Brandi gets a whole lot of backup. “Friends do not sue friends,” the wise Ken says, before calling out Paul on his BS. I want this guy to be my best friend. And with the benefit of flashbacks, we get to actually see how hypocritical the couple’s being. Even still though, they don’t back off an inch.

I have a hard time picking sides on this one — the Maloofs are pretty slimy BUT Brandi probably went out of her way to start some stuff, and could’ve kept things quiet way back when.

But that was fun!

What about you guys, HollywoodLifers? How did you feel about the episode? Let us know!
