Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Lisa Rinna Accuses Kim Richards of Escaping Rehab — “She’s Dangerous”

The claws come out! Lisa Rinna had some harsh words for Kim Richards during the Tuesday, December 15, episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, saying she's "dangerous" and "fled rehab in the middle of the night." Meanwhile, Lisa Vanderpump crushed the dreams of a tiny horse, and the world was introduced to new cast member Erika Girardi. Keep reading to find out why she's an "enigma, wrapped in a riddle and cash."

Lisa Rejects a Tiny Horse in a Tutu

Lame in more ways than one! Lisa Vanderpump wanted to buy Ken Todd a miniature pony named Rosebud for his 70th birthday, but it was an epic failure. When Lisa arrived in Ohio to pick up her new pet, she was presented with what appeared to be an obese pregnant donkey in a tutu. What's worse, it was lame. After agonizing about the fate of this mutant horse, Lisa ended up rejecting it, saying, "Basically, we flew thousands of miles for a three-legged pony." See you never, Rosebud.

Kyle Richards

Keeping Up With Kim Richards

Kyle Richards gave Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson an update on her sister Kim, who entered rehab after being arrested for public intoxication. "She went and got the help that she needs," Kyle said, while Eileen helpfully added, "I thought she escaped or something."

Kyle wasn't in touch with her sister at the time this episode was filmed, but Lisa Rinna had a lot to say about Kim's state of mind. "This girl does not have the tools to live in this society," she told cameras. "Last I heard, Kim fled rehab in the middle of the night. She went to her daughter's wedding and somehow got drunk? She kicked a police officer. When is somebody going to say enough is enough? She's dangerous, if you ask me."

Erika Girardi

Meet Erika Girardi (and Her Alter Ego)

Give a warm welcome to Erika Girardi, who joined the cast of Real Housewives by getting a casual vitamin C IV with Yolanda Foster! Erika, 44, is married to trial attorney Tom Girardi, and has already delivered some amazing quotes this season. Favorites include, "What am I gonna look like, a hag?" and "She's class and ass" — which, by the way, is how she described her alter ego, Erika Jane. Because yes, Mrs. Girardi spends her free time as a club performer.

It looks like Erika will bring plenty of drama to the table, and she has a message for people who think she's a gold digger: "I knew that was coming. It wasn't like I was so shocked. I knew there was a huge age difference between us — it's not like I'm some dum-dum."

The Ghosts of Housewives Past

Taylor Armstrong and Camille Grammer showed up to celebrate Ken's ponyless birthday, and Taylor immediately started throwing shade at Yolanda. "It seems strange to me that she's like 'happy selfie, sick selfie,'" Taylor said of Yolanda's struggle with Lyme disease. "I'm trying to follow her on Instagram, but I don't like seeing the whole needle in the arm thing all the time. It's a little much."

Lisa Rinna was horrified by Taylor's behavior, telling cameras, "I think that Taylor is definitely overstepping. Why is she being so vocal about this to me? It makes me uncomfortable."

Tell Us: Do you think Taylor should keep her opinions about Yolanda's health to herself? And more importantly, should Lisa have bought that lame donkey?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
