The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is fun because A) it’s like playing with Barbies who hate each other and B) it’s all play money! So last night we got to attend two fabulous birthday parties for Taylor and Kyle’s daughters, ages 4 and 2. Let’s take a look back at the prices that flashed on our screens, and a few things that didn’t get a cost assigned to them (like an appearance from Giant Elmo).

Originally from Seattle, Carla recently took a husband and moved to Austin, Texas, where she is finally using her television “problem” to her advantage. It’s sort of like Dexter, but boring and less murdering. Carla’s favorite shows include 30 RockThe Amazing RaceProject RunwayModern Family, anything with murder, and pretty much anything gross and weird (CSIThe BachelorToddlers & Tiaras, etc.). Favorite canceled shows include: Arrested DevelopmentVeronica Mars and Average Joe. In her spare time, Carla leads tours of downtown Austin on a Segway (don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it!), blogs about Netflix Instant, and visits elementary schools telling children they don’t need math to succeed (just kidding, stay in school, kids).
