'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' recap, Kim confronts Taylor about drinking

Kim pops over to visit Kyle. Nice to see all of this sisterly action.

Kim's enjoying Kyle's decorations, including a collection of enormous turtle -- or are those tortoise -- shells that are hanging along one wall. I hope Kim's right about the shells being good luck, because they definitely aren't adding anything else to the room.

Kim's not here for a straight-up social call. She's still worried about Taylor and thinks she has a problem with alcohol. She has gone through a lot in the past year, and I'm glad that Kim is real enough to look at these red flags and want to take action.

Kyle's fearful of discussing this with Taylor, especially since she dealt with something similar with Kim. She didn't believe that Kim even listened to her, but Kim assures Kyle that she heard every word. It may have taken her awhile to get the help she needed, but Kyle's persistence helped her get sober. It's really touching.

Finally, Kim calls Taylor and the girls head over to her house for their intervention.

Lisa and Ken are feeding freaking swans in their backyard because that's just how they do. Oh, and they're also headed to St. Tropez to visit Ken's son, Warren. Do you hate your life already?

Wait. Warren married one of Lisa's friends? Was this discussed before and I just missed it? That is ... just awkward. Your friend marrying your stepson? And they're going to stay at their house. It's like the plot to a "Meet the Parents" sequel.

Kim and Kyle make it to Taylor's and first thing, Taylor tries to pass the incident at Kim's party off as a "hand-off issue." Later, in a confessional, she explains that it was a miscommunication between her, her nanny and her mom. But she was just too flippant about it over the phone, honestly.

"Oh? I didn't know where my small child was! La di da!" (I'm paraphrasing, obviously.)

Kim isn't hearing it, though. It's not just about the other night. Taylor's drinking has been out of control all season.

Overall, Kim is being very fair and kind with her delivery, but Taylor's stone-faced expression gives me pause. It has been a rough year for Taylor. Actually, I can't believe she's on the show this season.

She will admit that there are times when she uses alcohol to forget about it all. Then when she wakes up the next morning, she's in "the darkest place" she can be in. Honestly glad Kim had the wherewithal to talk to Taylor about this now, before things escalated.

Yolanda's at Mohamed's prepping for this housewarming party she's having to show the girls his newly decorated place. I'm glad she's cool with her ex, but how far does this go?

She says he's a great person, but faithfulness isn't his thing, and a "proper Dutch girl" isn't about that life. Not in the least.

Lisa shows up first and tells Yolanda about her trip to St. Tropez. Coincidentally, Yolanda's going to be in Paris around that time, and they make plans to hook up. Argh! Lisa and Yolanda being fabulous in Paris? I cannot wait.

David, Yolanda's current husband, shows up, completing the blended family thing. Brandi and Jennifer show up, and Mohamed cranks up the charm for Brandi. I need a gif of all of Brandi's confessionals from this episode, especially one of her claiming not to flirt with Mohamed and exalting in Adrienne's decision not to come to the party.

Wait, Brandi's going to Paris, too?! Gahhhhh!

Marisa's here, with her husband. Definitely hope Marisa gets the next spin-off for two reasons: 1) Need to learn more about the Hollywood-powerful Zanucks. 2) She cannot get enough of the taste of her own foot, and I love it.

When David suggests that it's "time for a change" because Marisa and Dean have been together for 16 years, Marisa wholeheartedly agrees. Of course, David's terrible joke was meant for Dean, but Marisa thinks "like a guy," so ... y'know.

Dean sips his drink awkwardly when Marisa jokes about ogling other men, and then tension spikes up to 1000. Most patient man on reality TV. Bless his little heart.
