In light of Kim’s recent odd behavior on the Bravo hit show, sources say she is back to drinking heavily as the mag reveals those close to her even staged a mini intervention on Oct. 24.
If you recall, Kim’s sister Kyle Richards had some harsh words for Kim, 47, during last season’s volatile finale. “You’re an alcoholic! Yes that’s right. I’ve said it now and everybody knows,” said Kyle to Kim during their fight in the limo.
Star states that after hearing her sister’s harsh words last year, Kim actually checked herself into rehab. Fast forward to today and unfortunately for Kim, her drinking issues have reportedly taken a turn for the worst.
“Kim drinks daily and doesn’t recognize she has a serious problem,” a source reveals. “Kim fell down in her kitchen on Oct. 22, holding a glass of wine in her hand when she went down.”
Star reports that Kim — red-eyed and reeking of booze — however assured her friends all was well and that she was simply suffering from a little dehydration. “We were all concerned,” the insider adds.
Even worse, some of Kim’s friends suspect she is doing a little more than just boozing. “I suspect Kim is on prescription meds,” the source reveals. “She’s always popping white pills of some sort, so who knows what she’s on.” TMZ posted a clip of Kim last year, in which she was popping pills at an airport.
During the staged intervention on Oct. 24, Kim was reportedly reluctant to listen to her friends’ concerns. “When I questioned her about her alcohol use, she told me, ‘I’m not an alcoholic. I’m just a serious social drinker,’” reveals one of Kim’s pals who was a part of the failed intervention.
As for Kim, she has yet to comment on this latest report by Star though she did break her silence a week ago revealing that while she has had past issues with alcohol, all is well with her today. As for her behavior on the show, which included frequent bathroom visits during the infamous ‘game night from hell,’ Kim stated it was result of new meds given to her for her anxiety issues.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM IS IN NEED OF REHAB?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills things got wild Moroccan style at Pandora’s insane, incredible, fantastic engagement party. Can Mohammed be my godfather? Kim debuted her new man who is also a Ken! And Taylor and Russell got a little threatastic with the tabloids. Oh, and Taylor started planning another Birthday Party for Kennedy!
Lisa is driving through her hood amidst the palm trees, Bentleys, designer logos, and mega-mansions casually calling all her friends to remind them that the party of the year will be happening on Tuesday so they better show up. Sadly, everyone is screening her calls. No interest in the British accent today, co-stars? Finally Kyle answers and is wondering what on earth to wear?! Something fun and something ball gown. Lisa fills Kyle in on her little cooking lesson with Adrienne. They are both surprised Adrienne didn’t rub some hand lotion on the poor chicken!

“Ken stabbed me in the back and Lisa twisted the knife, but they didn’t kill me,” he laments. “It was a rough year, but I’ve landed on my feet.” And things are going well for the former moocher – he now has a job he loves, his own place, and a tell-all memoir in the works.
I wonder if that tell-all will include tidbits about the Vanderpump-Todd family? After all during the Season 1 reunion, Lisa revealed they were forced to get the police involved following Cedric’s ejection from their mansion and Kyle Richards let it slip that the couple filed a restraining order against Cedric!
Well, restraining order or not, Cedric is not hesitating to speak out on the couple who housed him and treated him as one of their family and Cedric insists that Lisa was buddy-buddy with the tabloid media and gave them negative stories about him and other cast members! “There’s no question about it. I’ve known Lisa has Us Weekly on speed dial since she sold out my relationship with Lance Bass,” Cedric declares. Um… what relationship with Lance Bass – did I miss something?
He also claims that Lisa is “absolutely” the person who fed the media information about Taylor’s marital issues, which is a storyline included in this season!
Cedric is also responding to friend Brandi Glanville‘s accusations that Kim Richards is an addict! “Anyone watching this season knows drinking is the least of her problems,” Cedric asserts. “I hope and pray she gets the help she so desperately needs.”
Well, Lisa has no comment – yet – about Cedric’s latest claims! But he will definitely be making an appearance later this season!
In other RHOBH news, unofficial Housewives Brandi and Dana Wilkey are giving their two cents on what it was like participating in a reality show!
As for adapting to life on TV, Brandi to confesses to the Huffington Post there were certainly some “low points” for all the cast members through the course of the show and she faults a lot of the erratic and unflattering behavior to long hours of filming mixed with lots of alcohol and little food!
Brandi also spoke out about LeAnn Rimes, the woman who first stole her husband and is now stealing her style! Brandi calls the alleged imitations “irritating.”
Since dating and subsequently marrying Eddie Cibiran, LeAnn has undergone a drastic weight loss, gotten breast implants, and started mimicking some of Brandi’s Twitter pics with those of her own (I’m sure you all remember the identical bikini poses!). LeAnn has even faced criticism for her weightloss from E! host Giuliana Rancic!
Well Brandi, who definitely isn’t one to hold her tongue, feels that LeAnne should give it up as being Brandi certainly wasn’t enough to sustain her marriage! “It obviously didn’t keep my ex-husband with me,” Brandi explains. “It didn’t work.”
“Oh, it’s irritating, yeah,” Brandi reveals. “[But] the kids love her. I’m happy that they love her,” she relents, taking the high road and admitting LeAnn is a good step-mom.
Dana also talked about how friend and co-star Taylor Armstrong is coping in response to the recent tragedy in her life. Dana admits: “She’s rebuilding. [She] will never be the same person again.”
She also confronts the rumor that Taylor may be dating Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren after numerous reports have spotted them together. “They’re just ‘silly stories,’” Dana insists!
A new episode of RHOBH airs tonight! The ninth episode titled ‘Otherwise Engaged’ Mohammed throws Pandora an over the top circus-themed engagement party, featuring camels, circus performers and snakes. But no Kim! Kim is a no-show since she is hiding her boyfriend, who according to IMDB, she has been dating for two-years! And Kyle has a tense dinner with Taylor and Russell who threaten legal action against Lisa for supposedly planting stories about them in the tabloids!
Well, I guess we can now say “it” has been brought. During the game night from hell on last week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, new girl Brandi Glanville challenged Kim Richards to “Bring it, b!thch!” after feeling the wrath of the Richards sisters. While Brandi apologized to Kyle Richards in the following episode at an awkward spa day, Kim wanted nothing to do with the piranha named Brandi.
Kyle has since done damage control spoken out about the women’s behavior, but her sister Kim has remained relatively mum (save a tweet or two)…until now. In a blog on her twitter page, Kim addresses the fight, her actions, and that pesky little crystal meth accusation.
Kim begins, “Let me first start off by apologizing for the delay in my blogs. It has taken me some time to come to grips with certain events that have unfolded on the show. One event in particular is the situation that occurred on Game Night at Pam’s aka Dana’s (haha) That night was the first time I had ever met Brandi.”
She maintains, “For someone who doesn’t know me personally to outright accuse me of using crystal meth leaves me bewildered. Not only did she accuse me of using crystal meth, she accused me of using crystal meth on national television. Drug abuse isn’t something you just throw around as a jab. When Brandi uttered those words on camera, the only thing I could think of was ‘where the hell did that come from?’”
As you recall, it was Kim’s odd behavior and multiple bathroom trips that prompted the outburst while the three women were fighting. Kim is adamant that it wasn’t drug abuse but anxiety medication that is to blame for her very loopy demeanor.
She explains, “I told the others that night, that I had just left my doctors for treatment of my anxiety and panic disorder. I have suffered from this for many years. They knew he had given me medication for it. I found myself groggy, as this was a medication I had never taken before. That is why I was carrying my coffee with me. I should have gone home to lay down. Instead I went to shoot RHOBH. My doctors have been trying to determine which medication is right for me.” Perhaps she took this same medication while Adrienne and Paul were waiting on her to fly with them to the Kings game?
Kim takes a little responsibility for instigating the incident, admitting, “I know I was no angel that night. I am embarrassed that I fed into the negativity. I didn’t like the way I acted and that is not my character. When I said ‘I don’t want her on my team’ I was just joking with my sister. We have our own sibling banter and we get each other’s jokes. That’s my humor. It’s my fault for not making it obvious to Brandi that I was joking and for that I apologize.”
Kim alludes that Brandi’s excuse for her meltdown is more than a tad hypocritical. “By Brandi throwing out that accusation, it not only hurt me and my reputation, but hurt my children. Brandi was so concerned saying ‘don’t talk about my children’ But did she think for one moment about MY children when she carelessly threw those words out?” Kim makes a pretty valid point there.
She continues, “My kids have been devastated by her cruel words. My children and their friends and families watch this show as well. I can say that I am not embarrassed or apologetic for coming to my sister’s defense. I love my sister with all my heart no matter what ups and downs we go through. She always has my back and I will forever have hers.”
Kim doesn’t deny a past history of substance abuse. She says, “I’ll be the first to admit that I have struggled in the past with certain vices; but I have never in my life, EVER, used crystal meth. I have discussed openly my issues with alcohol. As many of you know, sobriety is a lifetime process, a process that is a priority in my life right now. I am grateful for the love and support of my children, family and dear friends.”
She ends the entry thanking her friends, family, and fans for the outpouring of support she has received since that uncomfortable to watch scene. Admittedly that accusation was ridiculous. Yes, Kim was acting wacky very odd, but crystal meth? This is, after all, Beverly Hills.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S RESPONSE? DID SHE TAKE ENOUGH RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER PART IN THE ALTERCATION? ARE YOU TEAM BRANDI OR TEAM KIM?
Last night on theReal Housewives of Beverly Hills everybody got pampered and relaxed and got along swimmingly. Oh, wait – wrong show! The ladies continued their trip back in time to Beverly Hills High with Kyle playing the real-life all grown up Brenda Walsh, and Kim as her sidekick, and poor Brandi the victim of all their immaturity. I give Brandi credit – she stood her ground while retaining her dignity and did not bend to the almighty queens of bitchery.
Things start off with a little cooking lesson. Lisa has decided she can bear no more of Adrienne’s inadequacies in the kitchen and simply must teach her to roast a chicken. After everyone puts on their surgical gloves, they begin washing the chicken with dish soap – for anti-bacterial purposes. Then they stuff things up his bum after removing his guts. I guess Lisa was practicing for her treatment of Brandi later on! Adrienne is absolutely hopeless in the kitchen – hence the reason she has a chef – can’t find the salt and pepper or any of her three fridges, and just isn’t having fun. Was anyone else surprised they were stuffing a chicken’s butt with all their jewelry on?

“I regret how I acted. I am very sorry and it is so hard for me to watch the show,” tweeted Kim. She later added: “Thank you for your support!! I of course regret my behavior as well and im sure we both wish we could take it back.”
Also speaking out once again about her mean girl behavior is Kyle, who assures us she is absolutely NOT mean in real life! “The last couple of weeks I look like a mean person and I’m not, but you don’t always see everything and it’s hard to explain to people,” Kyle told Wetpaint. “I can say that when I watch it, I think that’s not me.”
Kyle goes on to reveal that she doesn’t have an issue with Brandi while seemingly blaming Brandi’s friendship with Cedric Martinez(Lisa Vanderpump’s former houseguest) as the reason for treating her the way she did.
“I don’t have anything against Brandi, I think she’s a beautiful girl. I think things are misunderstood about her son going to the bathroom on the grass. I don’t have any sons, but I know that little boys do that,” explained Kyle. “There is just a lot of stuff that people don’t see leading up to Brandi coming into the show, amongst all of us girls talking and knowing she is friends with Cedric,” she added.
As for Brandi, she is now firing back at both sisters in her latest Bravo blog. In the excerpt below, Brandi takes back the crystal meth comment she made about Kim but makes it clear she still believes Kim was under the influence of something -
“No, I do not believe that Kim was on crystal meth, and for that I apologize. I am also not 100 percent sold it was merely anxiety medication. Didn’t she tell Kyle she was inhaling air freshener? So maybe I was wrong: it wasn’t crystal meth, it was Febreeze. Under extreme circumstances I have taken anti-anxiety medication, and it did not require me to make 10 to 15 bathroom trips in the matter of four hours. Just sayin’.”
Brandi goes on to slam both Kyle and Kim for taking her crutches -
“When someone is dealing with an injury or a disability, it’s really funny to hide their means of support, right? It’s really funny to hide someone’s crutches. Isn’t it interesting that Kyle and Kim question my etiquette, morals, and upbringing, and yet they hide an injured woman’s crutches? Hilarious. There are three sides to every story and everyone saw the truth. Kyle’s version was entertaining, wasn’t it? I should have gotten a bowl of popcorn and some red vines because that story was straight out of her imagination.”
And finally, Kim Richards recently celebrated her 47th birthday and posted photos on her personal facebook page! In attendance were all four of her children as well as her sister Kyle. Those photos are below!

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies just couldn’t seem to get along and Brandi was again an outsider with only Adrienne and Taylor willing to be her friend – but only when no one else was looking! It kinda reminded me of Heathers! Watch your drink, Kyle!
Game night continues to rage on at Dana’s. Brandi tries to call a “Time-Out” but the Richards are in full attack mode, Winston Churchill be damned; they subscribe to Napoleonic tactics! Kyle is still upset Brandi let her son pee on Adrienne’s grass – ok, it’s tacky, but c’mon! Brandi is furious that Kyle is talking about her kids, but Kyle is actually talking about Brandi’s bad mothering!
Camille admits Kyle can be a B-I-T-C-H. Sick of the Richards’ superior attitude, a sniffling Brandi snaps that everyone else is trailer park and they’re Queens of England. Um…no, Kim redirects, only Brandi is trailer park! And Kyle’s not wearing a tiara! Duh! Well, I kinda think Kyle wears one at home when no one is looking, don’t you?
