It’s here — the ‘RHOBH’ finale. If the wild end of last episode is any indication, we’re in for some serious drama. Now let’s get started

We closed the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills penultimate episode at Lisa and Ken Vanderpump’s housewarming party, where things were already heating up between the ladies of 90210. When we return, thank goodness nothing has changed.

Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster still can’t believe the nerve of Faye Resnick (and honestly even though it’s been a week, I can’t either). Faye must be in the bathroom or something, because the two girls are able to hammer out a conversation with Marisa Zanuck, because they were close to a reconciliation before crazypants Faye butted in. They all agree that the not-a-big-deal “hall pass” text message from Brandi wasn’t a big deal — and we can move on to the next confrontation!

Faye Resnick Continues To Stir The Pot

Which takes place when Faye tells Lisa that she’s “out to get Adrienne.” Huh? This woman is on a roll! She steps into Villa Rosa and insults the hostess, accusing her of getting Brandi to fight her battles? Aw hell naw.

Faye hops from that claim back to the one where Brandi caused Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif to get divorced and then she says that Brandi shouldn’t have been hooking up with a guy during Kyle Richards’ White Party because her kids could’ve walked in! At 1 AM. She then says, “They were probably playing tiddly-winks.” Sorry readers, I do not know what this means.

The fight ends with a bunch of girls telling Faye to stop talking and Faye continuing to talk. Also of note: Kyle butts in but fails to back up Lisa, as — flashback! — she once promised she would. Faye FINALLY walks away, but not before she makes a Pretty Little Liars reference.

Adrienne Maloof Makes One More Appearance After Divorce

And — OH MY GOD Adrienne showed up! Kyle and Kim don’t do much talking, just mostly crying. I just have to say — the ladies really came out for the finale; they are peaking emotionally. Adrienne explains her issues with Paul and says she was served papers, but wants to work with Paul with marriage counseling. I have a feeling that isn’t going to happen.

And just like that, Adrienne walks out of Lisa’s mansion, and out of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills altogether. It was nice knowing you, girl. You were the life of the party — or whatever you wanna call it — for most of this season.

Lisa & Ken Vanderpump Get Married… Again

At the beginning of the episode, the girls were acting like regular sleuths, putting two and two together and concluding that Lisa and Ken’s housewarming party was in fact a vow renewal ceremony. I was a little confused by that, because I thought that much was clear. But either way, their detective reporting turns out to be spot on — yes, Ken and Lisa are renewing their vows.

And this season of RHOBH ends with love, not hate. After a wild first half of this finale, Ken and Lisa have a touching moment restating their love for each other. It’s actually sweet and heartwarming! My main man Ken gives a lovely speech, and Lisa’s is just as good. This part of the finale proves that this show can actually mix the good, the bad, and the ugly. And it’s why we love it.

If this ending was too saccharine for you, do not fear! The reunion is still to come! I’m so excited I can’t even control myself! Stay tuned for our thoughts on the drama to come in the reunion.

Thanks for reading, guys. See you next season!
