Earlier this week it was reported that one of Kim Richards' children was seen wandering naked around her neighborhood and was retained on a 5150 Mental Health assessment hold. We opted not to report on the matter since it seemed private and personal – and because Kim's children are not generally featured on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
All that may soon change! Kim is reportedly planning to feature the mental health breakdown as a storyline this season. Kim's alcoholism has played prominently into the show for the past three seasons so evidently she's decided nothing is too real for reality TV!
Kim, a mother of four adult children, has not revealed which of her kids is experiencing the issues. “The child will most likely be identified, but not featured on the show,” a production source told Radar Online.
Reality TV star birthdays are typically celebrated with over-the-top festivities, loads of sequins, glitter and party bills they may not be able to pay. See which celebs will be partying it up in August!
Perhaps things are turning around in the romance department for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.The wild and brash reality star gets most of the material for her books from her hilariously sad love life, but apparently that could be changing.
While Brandi's been seen out and about with a new beau, her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his former mistress/current wife LeAnn Rimes are following in Brandi's footsteps and prepping for their own reality show creatively titled "LeAnn & Eddie." This is going to be good, y'all. So good! LeAnn's twitter handle may as well be "I'm THE BEST bonus mom EVER" due to the sheer volume of photos she posts of her step-sons on the social media site, but will we get a chance to see her stellar parenting skills on the small screen?
Let's start with Brandi's new boyfriend, shall we?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above: Bethenny Frankel tweeted, "Tassels – because in the Twin Cities, you need twin titties."
The local paper said the airport looked like a film set with posters of "filming in process" and instruction to passengers included. The reporters shared that the case was approachable and sweet to fans and photographers.
The RHOBH crew is enjoying the lavish life at the Waldorf Astoria Collection Las Casitas Resort in Fajardo. Yesterday they all spent some time sunbathing at Palomino Island and have been spotted at "luxurious locations" to do their filming.
Joyce Tweeted the photo of their view, "My lindo Puerto Rico! Simply paradise!".
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!
