Kim Richards


According to a new report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has left rehab… for realz this time.

UsWeekly broke the news moments ago with a source telling the mag “Kim is doing well.”  If you recall, Kim tried to leave rehab about two weeks ago, before the end of her 30 day stay, but the 47-year-old was ultimately convinced to stay. UsWeekly also reported back then that Kim was being “defiant” in rehab.

RadarOnline is also confirming the news. “Kim is out of rehab and staying in a hotel in Beverly Hills,” a source reveals. Kim’s sister Kyle Richards came out last week denying reports which stated Kim would be moving in with her after rehab.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise as Kim was supposed to stay at the Betty Ford Center until February. Kim’s early exit means she spent about 40 days or less in rehab. Perhaps it’s just me but Kim’s problems looked pretty severe on the show and I can’t help but wonder if 40 days was really enough to help kick her addiction issues. Here’s to hoping it was.

Moving on to the RHOBH reunion which was filmed last Thursday. It is being confirmed by the Wetpaint blog that Kim was indeed absent from the reunion. “Her presence was missed,” a show insider tells Wetpaint. “But that’s okay. Her recovery takes priority over the show and everyone is happy she’s getting the help she needs.”

Other reunion secrets revealed includes the fact that taping took all day. “They didn’t get out until just before 9 p.m.,” says the insider. “It was their longest reunion taping yet.” And yes Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey were both in attendance. However, the insider states that Bravo was very upset with Brandi over her publicity stunt/Las Vegas wedding last weekend and took out a little revenge on her.

LISA’S FORMER HOUSEMATE CEDRIC MARTINEZ SPILLS RHOBH SECRETS!

“Brandi was told to come really, really early,” the insider tells Wetpaint. “She arrived way before anyone else in the cast. Then, the producers just made her sit there and wait. She waited for hours. I think it was their way of messing with her.”

Also, Bravo did not shy away from Russell Armstrong’s suicide according to the report. “Each of the women was asked if they wanted to say anything about it,” reveals the insider. “Most of them shared their own thoughts.”

So can we expect some fireworks from the reunion? According to RadarOnline, that answer is NO. Bummer! “All of the main issues were addressed during the taping,” the source said. “But other than Brandi yelling there weren’t any huge fights.” The source adds, “Brandi was out of control… She was swearing at the other women and being obnoxious.”

Andy Cohen spoke out on the reunion and Taylor Armstrong in a new interview with ET Online. According to Andy, Taylor “didn’t shed a tear” at the reunion taping. “She is coming from a place of strength and recovery now,” he adds.

Andy also denies Bravo is to blame for Russell’s suicide stating he believes “personal and financial crisis” and a change in his medications contributed to his demise. Andy brings up a valid point when he cites that Russell’s business partner also took his own life.

“This was a man who signed up to be on a second season of a show,” Andy said in defense of the RHOBH. “This was a man that had expressed to producers that the first season of the show was very good for his business.”

The RHOBH season 2 finale will air on January 23, and the reunion will air January 30. There’s no word yet on whether this will be a one or two part reunion.

Moving on to tonight’s all the new episode of the RHOBH. On the 18th episode this season titled ‘A Day Late, An Apology Short,’ “Kim and her new beau finally arrive in Hawaii. Yet there’s trouble in paradise: They miss most of the activities and Kyle at long last confronts her sister about her bizarre behavior.”

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

Cedric Martinez, former houseboy housemate of Lisa Vanderpump simply refuses to go away!

The latest by Cedric is an article from Star Magazine in which he spills all sorts of secrets about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. In the article, Cedric states Kim Richards’s addiction issues are much worse than viewers can imagine, reveals Lisa’s true feelings about hubby Ken and costar Adrienne Maloof and also claims Adrienne might be in the worst financial condition out of all the cast.

Below are a few of Cedric’s “highlights” from the article:

Kim Richards’ Struggles With Alcohol Addiction – According to Cedric, an addition to alcohol is the least of Kim’s problems. “The truth is much darker,” he says. “I’m thankful Kim is now in rehab, hopefully getting some professional help.”

Lisa’s Feelings On Hubby Ken and Adrienne Maloof - Cedric says that despite their united font on the show, Lisa is “mortified and embarrassed,” by her husband Ken over some of his ‘ignorant jabs.’ As for Adrienne, Cedric states Lisa hates her neighbor and costar. “She feels Adrienne is not worthy of being on the show,” he says.

Cedric’s Relationship With Brandi Glanville - Cedric also reveals what has been reported previously, which is that he and newbie Brandi actually just met last year at a lunch organized by the show producers, and not during their modeling days in Europe a decade ago as they previously claimed. “It was a manufactured friendship to keep me on the show,” Cedric tells Star.

Why Was He Living With Lisa? And What Happened To Lisa’s Complaint? - “I moved out months before she landed the role,” says Cedric adding that producers convinced him to move back in for season 1 filming. As for the complaint Lisa filed against him with the cops last year over claims of a possible extortion, Cedric says Lisa’s case was weak. “I was never even contacted by police.”

The BH Housewives Lying About Their Wealth? – “Not everything is as it seems,” says Cedric, who claims seemingly uberrich Adrienne may actually be in the worst financial shape of them all. “They were forced to unload 98 percent of their beloved Palms Casino Resort,” claims Cedric. A report came out last year stating Adrienne was having financial difficulty and was forced to downgrade her lavish lifestyle. And last October, Adrienne admitted she had been “cutting back” on her lavish lifestyle.

Cedric, who will be appearing on the season 2 finale of the RHOBH, also claims producers of the show were the ones that invited him to Lisa’s party. “Lisa confronted me with some of the worst acting you’ll ever see on television. She claimed I wasn’t invited and told me to leave. It’s sums up all the phoniness and manufactured drama on the show,” he says.

Meanwhile, the RHOBH season 2 reunion filmed on Thursday and we’re hearing Kim Richards, who is still in rehab, did not attend. Below are some tweets from Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong and Andy Cohen after the taping:

Kyle tweeted – “Emotionally draining day. So hard to re live all the difficult moments this season on #RHOBH. Thank u to our “therapist” @BravoAndy. Xo”

Taylor tweeted – “Thanks for the great support! For the haters, when all the truth comes out I’ll try to post some delish “crow” recipes.” Really Taylor?

Andy tweeted – “Long day taping #RHOBH Reunion. Emotional, intense, dramatic. The wives deserve a cocktail right about now…. !”

No word yet on how many parts the reunion will be but it is scheduled to air on January 30.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CEDRIC’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE BH HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU BELIEVE HIM?

According to a new report, the Dancing With The Stars producers are interested in having Taylor Armstrong on the show next season!

With ratings for DWTS down last season, sources close to the show tell the HollywoodLife blog that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star alongside Regis Philbin are on the producers’ dream list.

“We would love to have the drama and emotion that Taylor Armstrong would bring to the show and counter that with the lovability that Regis Philbin has given audiences for decades,” a source from the show reveals. “ABC has a wonderful relationship with Regis from his Who Wants To Be A Millionaire days. Plus, who wouldn’t want to see what Taylor would bring to the dance floor each week?” Uhh is that a trick question???

Safe to assume Taylor’s answer would be YES if DWTS came a-knocking!

TAYLOR’S ARMSTRONG LESBIAN AFFAIR WITH OC HOUSEWIFE REVEALED!

Moving on to Brandi Glanville, who continues to enjoy a ton of press from her quickie Las Vegas wedding this weekend. Brandi tied with knot with MMA manager Darin Harvey on New Year’s Eve only to announce on her Twitter page the next day that she planned to annul the publicity stunt wedding.

Fast forward to today and Darin’s ex-wife Michelle Harvey is now revealing Brandi betrayed her. The reason? According to Michelle, Brandi used to be her BFF!

“She was my best friend until she started an affair w my ex hus Darin behind my back!!!! All our sons are paying the price” posted Michelle on her Twitter account Tuesday afternoon.

“I was BG BFF for 12 yrs b4 betrayed by her n my ex Darin!” continued Michelle. “Brandi doesn’t care about me or my son… But Darin should!!!!”

While Brandi has stated this was simply a drunken spontaneous decision, Michelle states it was all planned for publicity! “Darin told me they did it for the publicity!!! Pathetic fame wh*res. All 3 kids are devastated,” she wrote. “They are both back peddling…Darin admitted to me it was her idea for publicity.”

Brandi immediately fired back at Michelle tweeting: “@modellharveym You cheated on @darinharvey with one of his family members! U left him, u have a serious cocaine problem.Stop the lies.” Yikes. Michelle has since deleted her Twitter page.

Meanwhile, after getting some backlash from fans on Monday, Brandi issued a pseudo apology (spelling errors and all) via Twitter stating, “In my head I was just having fun w/ my best friend who I adore & has been there for me during all my tuff times! I didnt mean to offend anyone! I beleive everyone shud be able to get married & maybe even embarass themselves in Vegas…”

Brandi also told E! News that the marriage was not “legal” or ” binding.”

“He’s my best friend,” she says of Darin. “I’m always down to have a good time. It sounded like something different. It was on my bucket list [to] get married in Vegas, so why not? … We’re not really married, but we went through the motions and we had a good time.”

And finally, Kyle Richards confirmed her sister Kim Richards is no longer dating beau Ken Blumenfeld during her appearance on the Wendy Williams Show this week.

“They are no longer together,” said Kyle, adding “I was never a fan.” UsWeekly reported last week that Ken was said to be “controlling.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON DWTS WANTING TAYLOR ARMSTRONG? PLUS DO YOU BELIEVE MICHELLE OR BRANDI?


On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a little bit fun and fancy came back to us as the ladies sans Taylor embarked on a trip to Hawaii. Luckily, Loony Lips’ drama wasn’t far behind as she called mid-beach to let everyone know she had ditched her hubs for greener pastures. Hey, I heard Mohammed is single! What about that Martin? Kim also missed the show, but Brandi was there in her stead and ready for a full-frontal close-up! That was some bikini!

Things begin as The White Party rages on! Moments after Kyle and co. have kicked Taylor and Russell out for threatening to sue Camille, the ladies reconvene in the all-white living room to break down the situation again for the umpteenth time. Is she or isn’t she? Lying that is! No one seems to know what to believe. Even Taylor’s BFF is pretty mute about the situation. Adrienne is still pretty pissed that Taylor involved the ladies in all this mess — which I’m pretty sure she thinks is nonsense. Only Dana readily believes her BFFL. Hey girl wants to stay on RHOBH!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is now responding to reports which stated her sister Kim Richards planned to live with her upon release from rehab.

Late last week, reports came out that Kim had left rehab and was moving in Kyle for out patient care. It was later discovered that while Kim did attempt to leave rehab before the end of her 30 day mark, her loved ones convinced her to stay longer.

While talking to the Rumor Fix blog, Kyle made it clear that Kim, who has been living with her boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld, is moving into a new house once she leaves the Betty Ford Clinic. The rumor now is that Kim has broken up with boyfriend Ken who is said to be “controlling.”

“She won’t be living with me,” says Kyle, “We’re a little too old for that.” Kyle adds that her sister is, however, “doing really well.”

Sources tell the Rumor Fix blog that Kim has completed her 30 days in rehab, but the folks at the Betty Ford Center have recommended she stay for an additional 90 days of aftercare. Kim has reportedly agreed to stay at the facility until early February and will reevaluate things at that time.

A report came out days ago stating Kim was having a hard time in rehab and being defiant at times.

In other news, Kyle recently released her book titled — Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real with the Housewife Who Does It All.

Unfortunately This isn’t a sordid tell-all as the book description promises Kyle will reveal “how she achieves that perfect mix of celebrity and normality. In this collection of the best tips, advice and strategies she knows, Kyle’s talking friend to friend so you can create that blend of glitz and know-how in your own life.”

Below is an excerpt from her book about infidelity –

“I know some people say that flirting can be totally innocent and harmless. I don’t agree. I believe that a relationship, especially after marriage, needs to be protected and sheltered from the outside forces that could potentially undermine it.

One incident, a single mistake, is one thing, but I would not tolerate a repeat offender.

A woman friend came to me once very upset, and she started crying because she did something with someone other than her husband. I took her hands and said, “Look at me. It did not happen. Do you understand me? Stop! It did not happen. You’re moving on and it didn’t happen. Because otherwise you’re going to ruin your life.” There’s no need to hurt the other person unless you’ve put him at risk and have a responsibility to let him know. Do what you need to do to acknowledge in yourself and to God what you did. Don’t forget it; just learn from it and try to move on. When you face conflict in your marriage, look at the bigger picture of what is valuable in your life and what you want to hang on to. That might mean forgiving your husband or yourself.”

So Kyle’s advice on infidelity is to not tell your partner? Interesting. Kyle also shares tips on her family, hair, men & her beauty in the book.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 17th episode this season titled Leis and Lies in Lanai, Taylor grapples with marital hardship as the other ladies fly to Hawaii for a sun-and-fun getaway. But there’s a nasty Hawaiian punch when Kim misses her flight. Worse, she misses her second flight as well.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

Despite reports that Kim Richards checked out of rehab and was pursuing out-patient care, a new report now reveals she never left, though she did attempt to leave.

Us Weekly is reporting that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has decided to stay in rehab — with some difficulty. “Kim tried to leave and she ended up coming back,” an insider explains. “She is and was being very defiant and is obviously not having the easiest time.”

Kim, 47, initially checked into treatment earlier this month after supposedly being encouraged by Bravo to get help or lose her position on the show. Previous reports stated Bravo was forced to edit out a majority of Kim’s film from this season because her behavior was too erratic and it was obvious something was amiss.

Even if she completes her stay in rehab sources close to Kim are claiming the show is an unhealthy environment for the fragile Kim and she will have tremendous difficulty remaining sober if she continues with reality TV.

This will be Kim’s second time voluntarily entering rehab since 2010. Last year, she checked herself in following the explosive RHOBH finale where Kyle Richards accused her of being an “alcoholic.” That stint was apparently very brief and Kim was said to have left after only a few days.

Kim’s sister, Kyle, paid a visit this week and posted a photo of the two of them on Twitter — Perhaps Kyle’s visit was to encourage Kim to remain in treatment and get the care she needs? “Kim’s alcohol addiction along with other substance abuse problems has been obvious for quite some time,” an insider reveals. “It’s really good that she’s finally getting help.”

One reason her family and friends are so happy Kim is seeking help is her tumultuous relationship with Ken Blumenfeld. “No one likes Ken,” a source close to the Richards tells UsWeekly. “He’s controlling and tells her what to do.” Kim was allegedly homeless and staying with a friend when she made the decision to enter treatment after several fights with Ken forced her to leave the home they shared.

Kyle has made no secret of her dislike and distrust of the relationship and has even said on the show that Kim’s children think Ken is controlling. The magazine adds that none of Kim’s castmates like Ken and still haven’t warmed to his quiet demeanor. On the last episode of RHOBH Kim was seen counseling her children to get along with Ken at Kyle’s White Party and keep their comments to themselves if they were unhappy with him. Recent speculation has claimed that Kim and Ken are no longer together.

On the last episode viewers also watched a very vocal and over-the-top Kim confront castmate Brandi Glanville; basically telling her they will never ever be friends because Kim doesn’t like her after she accused Kim of using meth! Well, apparently the two still don’t get along and have never exactly patched things up. “Kim and Brandi are still not friends,” an RHOBH insider declares. “They just do not like each other.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK – IS KIM STILL IN REHAB? SHOULD BRAVO ALLOW KIM TO REMAIN ON THE SHOW? SHOULD KIM AND BRANDI GET OVER THEIR PETTINESS AND PUT THE PAST BEHIND THEM?

Has she or hasn’t she? There are conflicting reports today on whether or not Kim Richards has checked out of rehab before the end of her 30-day stay.

According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has checked out of rehab after Bravo reportedly forced her to seek help or risk losing her spot on the hit show.

Sources tell the site that Kim, 47, sought help at the insistence of Bravo after a Thanksgiving that had her loved ones very concerned about her health.

“On Thanksgiving Kim was stumbling and stuttering. It’s her normal,” a source close to Kim tells Radar. “She definitely abuses alcohol,” the source added. Kim herself has admitted on the show to taking a concoction of prescription pills, which includes Lexapro, Trazadone and Topamax.

“The pressures the women face being on the show are enormous,” the source told Radar. “Kim was basically told that if she wanted to stay on the show then she had to get help, so she did. Kim doesn’t have any other significant source of income and she needs to keep her job on the show.”

RadarOnline adds that Kim plans to continue her treatment with outpatient therapy.

PEOPLE magazine also confirmed Radar’s report with a source telling them Kim had indeed checked out of rehab. However, just moments after the report came out Kim’s rep insisted to PEOPLE magazine that she has yet to check out. In fact, while Kim’s sister, Kyle Richards, isn’t confirming whether Kim is still in rehab or not Kyle did reveal she visited Kim last night on her Twitter page.

“Happy night w/ my sister @KimRichards11…” tweeted Kyle last night along with a picture of herself and Kim. That pic is posted below. “Loved the time I got to spend w/ my sister @KimRichards11. I love u and am so proud of u. Xoxo,” tweeted Kyle today.

“She’s doing okay,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Everyone is hoping for the best.” The source states that Kim’s daughter Kimberly was also part of the visit. “They were all happy to see each other,” adds the source.

As reported a while back, this isn’t Kim’s first rehab stint. “Every time is a new time, and everyone just hopes this sticks and that she gets the help she needs,” another source told PEOPLE earlier this month when Kim first checked into rehab.

Two conflicting reports. I will say though that for PEOPLE magazine to originally report Kim had left rehab means they had to have had a very credible source. My guess is that Kim did indeed leave rehab before the end of her 30-day stay and her rep is now doing damage control. But only time will tell.

In the meantime, below is a picture of Kim and Kyle from yesterday.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE CONFLICTING REPORTS? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM’S STILL IN REHAB?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE PHOTO OF KIM IN REHAB -

Fans of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were relieved to learn that Kim Richards had checked herself into rehab following a season filled with erratic and troubling behavior (“Slut Pig” outburst, anyone?).

Well, In Touch Weekly now reports that what viewers saw was mild compared to what was happening behind the scenes and that Kim’s situation was far more dire than we could have imagined! In a new expose titled “Destroyed By Hollywood,” the magazine speaks to a relative and a family friend of Kim’s that claim appearing on the series caused Kim to relapse! “Before the show, Kim was sober and living a low-key life,” the relative reveals.

“Kim is a really quiet person when she’s sober,” the relative shares. “But in order to get good ratings you need big personalities. So she started drinking again almost as soon as she got on the show.” It was Kim’s sister Kyle Richards who got her a spot on the show after she introduced Kim to producers and it was also Kyle who exposed Kim’s alcoholic past and publicly worried about her drinking and behavior throughout this season.

The pressure of being on camera and dealing with the show, including interacting with the other ladies, led Kim to start drinking again. “She turns to alcohol to deal with her nerves,” the relative explains.

Initially, Kim’s silly and goofy personality along with her shy, but straight-forward demeanor earned her fans and she became one of the breakout stars of the series, but all that changed this season when viewers witnessed a very different side of Kim. According to Bravo insiders much of Kim’s behavior was so outrageous it had to be cut from the series, which is perhaps why we aren’t seeing much of her this season.

“They’ve actually edited out a lot of scenes in which she was acting really sloppy,” the insider recounts. “It was too evident that she was on something.” That lost footage was one of the reasons the network supposedly encouraged Kim to seek treatment for her addiction.

Kim apparently has a “lifelong” pattern of using alcohol and has been in and out of rehab throughout the past decade. Kim actually admitted this to fans in a Twitter blog, in which she acknowledged her past struggles with alcohol abuse and claiming that she was better now.

According to her family friend Kim was far from healed and in fact her desire to be famous fueled her addiction. “She has always wanted to be famous,” the friend shares. “Even a taste of it is addictive to her.” Indeed, Kim’s days in the limelight as a child star dwindled once she reached adulthood and pursued marriage and children.

Kim tried to break into acting as an adult, but never quite got a big break. Making it a particularly bitter pill to swallow was her niece Paris Hilton‘s rise to superstardom for a sex tape and personal scandals. Kim “actually had talent,” the family friend explains, “so to watch her niece, Paris become huge for doing nothing was especially difficult. It ate her up inside.”

The pressure of dealing with disappointment, along with the sudden new-found interest in her personal life due appearing on a hugely popular reality show pushed Kim to drink again. “She’s a closet drinker who uses alcohol as a way to escape from pressure,” the relative reveals.

And despite Kim’s ex-husband Monty Brinson‘s optimism that this time rehab will work for the struggling star, her relative is dubious about her potential for long-term success. “It’s good that she’s taking responsibility. But she won’t really get better unless she quits TV altogether.”
