While Brandi Glanville slurs, “STFU,” Lisa Vanderpump yawns, “BTDT,” and Kyle Richards brags, “CHANEL,” Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbies Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna are on a mission to help Kim Richards.
In her blog, Eileen reminds viewers Brandi admitted to Lisa last week that an intervention for Kim might be necessary. “This week, Brandi‘s friend Jennifer, who happens to be an addiction specialist, says Kim taking someone else’s meds is a HUGE red flag,” adds Eileen. “She asks if Kim has a sponsor and is getting the support she needs. Since Kim and Brandi are close friends, why isn’t Brandi encouraging Kim to see a therapist or making sure that she has a sponsor? Brandi seems to think that Kyle doesn’t want to help Kim, leaving Brandi as Kim’s only support system. If that’s true, why isn’t she getting more actively involved?” In my opinion, first and foremost, Kim needs to help Kim.

Eileen explains that she feels a moral obligation to try to help Kim… no matter that Kim made if be known that she lost her “warm and fuzzies” for Eileen.
“Kim feels I crossed a line by taking her and Kyle to lunch and trying to help them mend fences and questioning her friendship with Brandi. I get that. The only problem is that twice Kim has exhibited disturbing behavior in my home,” Eileen points out. “First, at my poker party, and now in my kitchen after the table read. She very freely expresses that she needs support, because she doesn’t want to go into ‘that dark place’ again. Honestly, I respect Kim’s private business, and I would prefer not to get involved. Saying that, am I supposed to turn the other way and pretend I don’t see what I see? At this point I feel like I have a moral obligation to do and/or say something. Lisa R, who has a seen a lot of addictive behavior in her life, feels the same way.”
Eileen says she understands Kyle‘s relationship with Kim is “on shaky ground” but thinks it was really important to broach the subject with Kyle regardless.
“This is an undeniably tricky situation. Kim seems to be in some kind of trouble with her sobriety, or, at the very least, is in a very vulnerable place in her life. She is at odds with her sister Kyle, who is hesitant to go down this road again. Her best friend, Brandi, seems to see all the red flags but isn’t actively doing anything about it. Lisa V and Yolanda haven’t really seen Kim’s behavior. Then, there’s Lisa R and myself, neither one of us is close with Kim, but we are both troubled by what we’ve seen,” says Eileen. “I see how my ‘butting my nose’ into Kim’s affairs might piss her off. Frankly, I’d rather say something and risk a potential friendship than do nothing and risk a life.”
