Kim Richards Rehab

Kim Richards leaves rehab for Brooke's bridal shower

Kathy Hilton wants us to know that she is proud of Kim Richards for going to rehab. Keep in mind, a rehab with luxurious accommodations that rival the Four Seasons. Also a rehab that lets its patients travel out of the country for a social event where there will most likely be an open bar. Sign me up.

“She’s great,” Kathy told People about Kim. “She’s doing really, really well. I’m very proud of her. She decided on her own to go.”

You rewrite history now, Kathy? Kim did not wake up one day, admit she has a problem, and seek help willingly. She humiliated herself in public, got arrested, and then felt the pressure from her lawyer, to avoid jail time, and/or from Bravo, to hold onto her spot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Kim Richards

Despite checking herself into a fancy pants rehab in an attempt to impress the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, Kim Richards has officially been charged with three crimes stemming from her vodka induced meltdown in April.

At the time of her arrest, Kim was charged with trespassing, public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery on a police officer. Now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has officially been charged with three of the four: battery on a police officer (kicking a police officer), public intoxication, and resisting arrest.

Kim Richards is currently in rehab – again – to seek help with her addiction issues. She made the decision to accept treatment after a disastrous Dr. Phil interview and a recent arrest for public intoxication, but she’s not happy about it! 

Dr. Phil confronted the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star about her manipulative and deceitful behaviors and her inability to face the truth. When he offered to get Kim treatment she stormed-out and berated him. Kim finally did check-in to rehab – reportedly a 30-day inpatient program in Malibu – but sources say she is up to her shenanigans in treatment of being demanding, impossible, and trying to leave!

Kim Richards Sits-Down With Dr. Phil To Talk Alcoholism & Arrest

Dr. Phil sat down with Kim Richards to discuss her long history with drug and alcohol abuse, her defensive, deflective behaviors, her relationship with Kyle Richards, and whether or not Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is a healthy environment for her. True to form, Kim blamed everyone else for her arrest and issues – the Beverly Hills hotel for calling the cops, twitter, RHOBH viewers, her co-stars, blogs. 

First of all, Kim sounds … off in the beginning; slurry and inarticulate with a glazed expression in her eyes as if she’s reciting from a teleprompter. I don’t think she was – I think it was rehearsed and she was desperate to stay “on message” of denial. 

In classic Kim fashion, she was hours late for her sit-down with Dr. Phil leaving him waiting for the interview to start while she fussed over her appearance. Kim denies procrastinating and insists she was ready the whole time, apologizes insincerely. More classic Kim. Dr. Phil is prepared for Kim’s “controlling” behaviors and calls her out throughout the entire segment.

Kim Richards Sits-Down With Dr. Phil To Talk Alcoholism & Arrest

Today Kim Richards will be talking to Dr. Phil about her arrest and her issues with alcohol. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star is presently in rehab following the difficult sit-down, which included an intervention from 3 of her children. 

Speaking out about Kim’s state of mind during the interview, Dr. Phil admits he’s concerned about her overall health and stability. The interview left no turn unturned as Kim was confronted about her toxic friendship to Brandi Glanville, whether or not reality TV is healthy for her, her relationship with Kyle Richards, and her constant denial about her own behavior – including blaming the police, the Beverly Hills Hotel, and RHOBH for her arrest! 

Dr. Phil shares that Kim got “frustrated” with him throughout the interview because he wouldn’t let her standard behavior of accusations, threats, and excuses stand.  “Addicts and alcoholics are great at deflecting, and I think she’s shown a lot of that behavior. I’m not real good at letting people do that… ,” he explained. “I didn’t let her wiggle, and think it was very frustrating for her.”

Kim Richards

Kim Richards quietly entered rehab over the weekend, just days after her arrest for public intoxication and her disastrous interview with Dr. Phil. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star checked herself into a private, live-in facility in Malibu where she can still be close to family and friends, but get the treatment she needs. 

Sources say Kim made the decision to go to rehab after discussing it with her family, but she’s still in denial about the severity of her addiction. “If the arrest hadn’t happened she wouldn’t be going to rehab; it would be business as usual. She’s in denial that she has a problem,” a source informs People

I'll be honest, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been riddled with ladies with some serious issues which can make viewing uncomfortable.  Case in point?  The sometimes slurring, lethargic, and loopy Kim Richards was often painful to watch.  Even after seeking help, she still seemed out-of-it and appeared to be on a downward spiral.  For me, that's not entertainment.

However, Kim recently admitted that being accountable to family, friends, and fans has put added (positive) pressure to stay sober.  She seems fresher, brighter, and more grounded than the Kim we've grown accustomed to on the Bravo hit.  Seriously…it's a video interview, and she looks and sounds like a new lady.  Thank goodness, and here's hoping she continues to get better!

The media has been buzzing with news regarding the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so of course those ladies who love cameras and interviews have been out in full force.  Taylor Armstrong, who is promoting her new book Hiding From Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within, has recently revealed that she was floored to learn that her young daughter Kennedy knew about the abuse she endured at the hands of late husband Russell Armstrong.

Taylor discusses her conundrum in a recent interview with HollywoodLife.com. She states that Kennedy inquired why Taylor could miss her father when he “beat her all the time.”  Tragic, to say the least.   Taylor says she replied, “I said, ‘You know what, you’re right.  Your daddy had a bad temper and that wasn’t okay, but he loved you very much.’”

When trying to explain Russell’s relationship with his young daughter, Taylor reveals, “He never acted out towards my daughter. I try to reinforce ‘Your daddy loves you, and I know he misses you.’”

Going in depth about her past, Taylor admits, “The cycle of violence is a really interesting thing.  It happens in a lot of relationships. You think you can change someone, and you can’t. You think that if they hit you for one reason or verbally abuse you for one reason and you don’t do that behavior again that it won’t happen again, and that’s not the case. They will always look for something new.”  I am not a Taylor fan, but knowing people who have been in similar situations, I have to agree with her statement.

Meanwhile, Taylor isn’t ready to jump back into the dating pool.  She says, “I’m just so happy being single and loving my little girl and being so present with her.”  Taylor continues, “If you read my story, I’ve had a boyfriend since the time I was in the sixth grade and for me to be 40 and be so fine with being alone is beautiful. I just flew back from a vacation with my little girl, and we had the most fun that we’ve had in so long.”  And go buy her book!  :)

In other news from Beverly Hills, it has been reported that Kim Richards will be returning for the upcoming season.  Now an insider is coming forward and telling Radaronline.com that Kim is trying to get healthy while maintaining the Bravo paycheck.

The source reveals, “Kim needs the money because she has no other way to support herself and her children. She does receive child support from several different men who fathered her kids. Kim was able to negotiate a better salary for the upcoming season, she got a $10k raise. Kim truly didn’t want to do another season because she is still extremely vulnerable and dealing with her sobriety.”  This is the opposite of Kim’s friends who say she wanted her recovery documented to help others who may be struggling.

Someone “close to the women” shares that all the women “received a modest raise to come back and do season three. Taylor Armstrong has also become dependent on the show for the income and will be earning around $127,000 for the entire season. None of the cast is paid over $165k for a season of work. People might be surprised to learn how little the women earn from the show, this isn’t per episode, but for an entire season, which Bravo dictates the terms of how long the filming will be for.”

The same source continues, “The ladies won’t get rich from doing the show, but feel the exposure and publicity they get from appearing will be the big payoff. Look at Bethenny Frankel, she never earned more than $100k for being a cast member on the New York Housewives franchise of the show, and she just sold her Skinny Girl alcoholic beverage line for millions of dollars.”  Is said source Andy Cohen?

The insider tells the site that everyone involved in next season “seem[s] very excited to begin filming the third season of the show. However, they were all extremely sad and disheartened that Camille Grammer won’t be back, she truly has been the heart and soul of the show. There will be at least two new Housewives on the Beverly Hills cast this season, Bravo hasn’t officially decided who they will be yet.”

Perhaps, said insider isn’t as inside as he/she hoped!  Regardless, I am torn on both Taylor and Kim returning.  I am not on the hateful Taylor bandwagon (but please know I’m not a fan either).  If her allegations are true (and I tend to think they are, regardless of how I feel about how she’s handled things since), I don’t think she is doing herself, or her daughter any favors by letting her life play out on television.  Similarly, watching Kim’s breakdown wasn’t entertaining, it was cringe-worthy.  I just wish these women would take the time to heal themselves and their families out of the spotlight.

Speaking of someone who is doing just that, Camille is still having issues with her new boyfriend’s ex, and finds herself unwittingly at the center of their custody battle.  Her beau Dimitri Charalambopoulos recently obtained a restraining order against his son’s mother, Lisa Chynoweth. Now Lisa is fighting back, wanting to move their son from Texas to Colorado…closer to her family and farther from his father.

Radaronline.com is reporting that Lisa submitted a sworn declaration to the court, stating, “I do not believe it is in the best interest of our son to be subject to the social media, paparazzi, and social pressures of the type of lifestyle his father has chosen to live. Because of Camille Grammar’s publicizing her relationship with Dimitri on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Dimitri is now being referred to all over the Internet as a ‘Boy Toy’..This negative publicity is harmful and devastating to the self-image of our nine-year-old son.”

However, a source close to Camille is quick to point out that her relationship with Dimitri is why she decided not to return to RHOBH, as producers wanted “her to have Dimitri on the show, and have their relationship play out on camera, along with her children.”

The source states, “Camille was steadfast on her decision to not put that part of her life on the show, and she ended up walking away…No one told her to do that, not a judge, her lawyers, Dimitri, that was Camille’s decision.”   Further, “Camille has never met Marcus! Camille thinks it’s just too soon to meet him, even though she has been dating his dad for almost eight months.  Camille is fully supportive of Dimitri’s relationship with Marcus, and would love to meet him one day when it’s appropriate.”

The insider continues, “Camille has been through her own custody battle with her two children, and her ex-husband, Kelsey Grammer, and Camille knows that the children come first, period. Dimitri can’t believe how down to earth and level headed Camille is, it’s not what he has been used to at all.”

I am glad to hear that Camille is taking the high road with this situation and her life.  Who knew that the most vilified season one housewife could make such positive turn-around?

THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S INTERVIEW?  DO YOU THINK KENNEDY WAS AWARE OF WHAT WAS GOING ON AROUND HER?  SHOULD TAYLOR RETURN?  SHOULD KIM RETURN?  COULD BEING ON A REALITY SHOW HINDER HER RECOVERY?  COMMENTS ON CAMILLE’S RECENT DRAMA?
