Kim Richards

A day after news broke of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards entering rehab, a new report now states she was forced to seek help by Bravo.

According to RadarOnline, Bravo did not want another tragedy on their hands following the tragic suicide of Russell Armstrong back in August, and therefore told Kim she had to go to rehab… immediately.

“After Russell Armstrong’s suicide Bravo is trying to making sure that nothing bad happens to the people on their shows,” a source said. “They don’t want any more tragedies on their hands.” The source, however, claims that Bravo was also concerned about Kim’s health. “The network people were worried about her and wanted her to try and fix her problems.”

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

Star magazine first broke the news two weeks ago that Bravo was planning to give Kim an ultimatum to get help if she wanted to remain on the show.

In other RHOBH news, Taylor Armstrong has unveiled the cover (posted below) of her upcoming memoir — Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss and Finding the Courage Within.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Taylor tells us what we can expect from the book which is due out February 2012. “My book takes readers behind the glamour of Beverly Hills to show them the terrible violence I suffered, and the slow and painful process of rebuilding my shattered life,” Taylor states. “I want readers in abusive relationships to learn from my suffering and use my book to help them find their own courage within.”

During Taylor’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live, she offered words of support to her costar Kim. “I adore Kim and I stand behind her,” said Taylor to Andy Cohen. “And if there’s anything I can do to support her [I will]; but if she’s getting healthy what more could we ask.”

Meanwhile, Adrienne Maloof also offered her support to Kim. “I wish her well. It’s a step in the right direction,” said Adrienne to UsWeekly.

How is Kyle Richards handling the latest news? “Kyle is doing okay. Even though Kathy [Hilton] is not on the show, I know that they are close,” a source tells UsWeekly. “It must be very difficult for Kyle and Kathy and their families.”

Following a season of odd behavior and concern from fans, Kim Richards is now seeking help at a rehab facility.

ET Online broke the news moments ago that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is currently getting help at an undisclosed treatment center.

Kim’s substance abuse issues first became public knowledge earlier this year after her sister Kyle Richards called her an alcoholic during a limo fight on the season one finale. It is, however, Kim’s behavior this season that had many fans wondering if she had fallen off the wagon.

While Kim, 47, blamed her behavior on anxiety pills last month, reports have claimed she has been drinking heavily again. Whatever the case, it’s good to see Kim finally getting help. Wishing her the best.

Oddly enough though, Star magazine reported last week that Bravo was planning to give Kim an ultimatum — go to rehab in or get kicked off the show next season. “She may have to go to rehab in order to save her job on the show,” a source told Star two weeks ago. “People involved with the show are concerned and might have to step in … friends and family don’t talk about what’s going on with Kim.” Kim was also reportedly in rehab last year.

In other RHOBH news, Lisa Vanderpump addressed the recent drama with Adrienne Maloof, and now Adrienne is doing the same!

On the last episode of the show, Adrienne got upset with Lisa for hosting her daughter Pandora Vanderpump’s bachelorette party at Planet Hollywood instead of asking her to use her Palms Hotel so that she can get some free promotion on Bravo! Lisa’s defense was that the decision was Pandora’s plus she has known the owner of Planet Hollywood much longer than she has known Adrienne.

In her latest Bravo blog, Adrienne first takes Lisa to task for what she calls “snide remarks” about her shoe line and strongly hints that Lisa might be jealous of her.

Adrienne wrote, “It was really disappointing to see Lisa’s snide remarks about all of it. It’s something that has not sat well with me. I get that people make sarcastic comments, or careless ones, but I really believe that you have to take care not to insult someone’s family or their business. Simply put? Not cool. You’d think women would encourage each other instead of getting catty.”

Adrienne continues, “I was taken aback by what I consider to be her classless comments on my new business and how she approached the bachelorette party. I truly felt that she was envious of what we’ve accomplished and maybe what they say is true – jealousy is the root of all evil. Regardless, I’m so proud of what we accomplished this year in creating this brand, and I have so many plans for expansion next year.”

And on her Twitter page, Adrienne wrote a series of tweets to Lisa about their drama: “Your intended humor came across sarcasm about something very important to me. Hopefully you can see why it came across as hurtful just as I now understand it was meant to be funny. Certainly you and I have much better things to do than continue on this subject! More than willing to chalk it up to lessons learned and move on!! I know you’ll agree there are far more significant things happening in the world to dwell on!!”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH titled ‘Malibu Beach Party from Hell.’ On the 14th episode (14 episodes already?) this season, Brandi Glanville hosts a beach party which turns out to be more dramatic and tense than anyone realized. Brandi’s beach bash in Malibu sinks when Taylor and Camille clash.

The episode airs tonight on Bravo (9/8c) and in the dramatic preview clip below, things get ugly when Taylor orders Camille to come outside for a confrontation and Camille’s employee friend DeDe gets involved!

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a shoe spectacular! And oh man was I jealous over Adrienne’s collection. Adrienne hosted a fashion show to showcase her new shoe line as well as raise money for a charity that’s close to her sole (see what I did there?). Lisa and Adrienne exchanged words and Taylor continued her crusade against Camille. All in all it was a pretty good episode that was light on Richards’ drama and Taylor-Traumas!

Things begin with Lisa rushing in the door and she’s late, late, late for a meeting with wedding planner to the insane Kevin Lee. Kevin has apparently convinced Lisa and Pandora to surrender their brains, because as the invitations are unveiled my heart sank when I saw the ridiculous Michael’s craft project gift box. Did I mention those boxes cost $150 a pop? I apparently missed my calling and shall be quitting RT to race to Beverly Hills and design chintzy wedding invites. At least it was a slightly better color combo. As Lisa and Pandora gush over the boxitations, Ken looks slightly confused about what the eff he just paid for.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is speaking out about the recent drama on the show involving her costar and friend Taylor Armstrong.

In her latest blog with Bravo, Kyle reveals the situation/confrontation involving Taylor was “very difficult” because no one wanted to put her in harm’s way.

First Kyle reveals her reasons for not defending pal Lisa Vanderpump, though she wouldn’t have needed to defend Lisa had she not been talking smack about Lisa with Taylor to begin with! Kyle wrote: “Although, Lisa wanted me to step in more, we were okay. I honestly did not want to be involved in another argument. I was still recovering from Game Night. The last thing I wanted to do was get in the middle of someone else’s fight.”

Kyle then sort of makes excuses for her comment about Lisa ‘preying on the weak.’ She writes, “In the episode when I had my séance, Taylor came over to my house to say she was upset with Lisa. We had a conversation on my bed where she told me that she was “scared of Lisa” and that she was intimidated by her. I have never felt that way about Lisa, but I am a strong person. I told her she should be stronger with Lisa. I said “maybe she preys on weak people.” I think that “prey” was too strong of a word. That conversation wasn’t about Lisa. I was trying to help Taylor be a stronger person in general, to have her speak up for herself — in all areas of her life. I know it bothered Lisa that I said that, and I do feel bad about that. I am not premeditated in what I am going to say. That means there will be times I regret saying certain things.”

Kyle also touched on Taylor’s confrontation turned intervention: “Later Adrienne, Camille, and I had dinner and discussed the tea party . I know Camille was worried that Taylor was upset with her. Camille spoke the truth. Taylor was obviously concerned because it was put out in the open. However, sometimes people say things in the heat of the moment. Emotions were running high. This situation is very difficult and none of us wanted to hurt her or put her in harm’s way. Later, I told Taylor later that Camille was just saying what Taylor had told all of us.”

In a new interview with Wetpaint, Kyle revealed her sister Kim Richards is still dating and living with her boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld. When asked about Kim’s relationship, Kyle says disapprovingly, “They are still living together and I haven’t been over there.”

In other news, according to a new report by Star Magazine, newbie Brandi Glanville lied her way onto the show! So what exactly did Brandi lie about? According to the mag, she fibbed… big time about her so called friendship with Lisa’s former houseboy housemate Cedric Martinez.

“He’s my best gay friend!” Brandi announced to reporters back in February during the above staged outing with Cedric. “I’ve known him for 16 years. We modeled together in Milan and Paris and London back in the day.”

However, a source close to Brandi reveals it was all a lie! “Bravo bigwigs set the meeting up to see if Brandi and Cedric would bond and if she could prove a worthy opponent for Lisa,” an insider reveals. “Brandi came up with the story of their ‘friendship’ over lunch, hoping it would land her on the show.”

The source adds: “It obviously worked! And it really makes you question how much else she’s lied about over the years.”

Brandi, however, denies lying to get on the show, telling the Rumor Fix blog: “I got the show because of my friendship with Adrienne Maloof, she suggested me for the show. I am friendly with Cedric but that actually almost ruined my chances to get on the show as he is not liked on RHOBH. There is an ex-friend of mine with a major drug habit to support that went to Star and sold them several stories about me that will be coming out soon.This woman is a bottom feeder and I don’t want to pay her too much attention.”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH: On the 13th episode titled ‘Adrienne’s Fashion Show,’ Adrienne throws a lush-and-plush backyard fashion show, but brewing and stewing tension from the notorious tea party creates potential conflict. The episode airs at 9/8c tonight and a preview clip is below!

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I came to the conclusion that I am just so burned out on the Taylor, Taylor, Taylor show. And this show in general. Perhaps it’s a symptom of my profession that I watch too much Housewives! ;-)

Things pick up where they left off with Tea Party Part Deux and Camille confronting Taylor about her allegations of abuse. Camille is confused about how Taylor expects her friends to be all ecstatic about her husband when she is telling them he abuses her, yet no one sees any signs of said abuse – physical or otherwise.

Taylor calls Camille “uncool” for outing her marital issues, but Camille seems nonplussed and continues asking Taylor about the inconsistencies going on. Then, Camille pulls a total Dynasty diva moment and storms out! I wish there would be an exciting and frivolous Dynasty-style catfight on this show already. Full-scale hair pulling, sequined gown ripping, destroying of manicured lawns, all out bitch-queen catfight. Can we get on scripting this, Bravo? kthx!

Kyle Richards hasn’t approved of Kim Richards’ relationship since the get-go, but after learning that Kim’s beau has a DUI and is active on an Internet dating sight, she really doesn’t like him.

Speaking out about the contentious relationship while attending Virgin Unite’s Rock the Kasbah event (she was attending with husband Mauricio Umansky and niece, Paris Hilton), Kyle explains she has just heard the news about Ken Blumenfeld’s 2009 arrest for a DUI and his current Match.com profile. A photo of Ken’s online dating profile is below.

“I just heard about the DUI…I just heard about that today,” Kyle admits. As for Kim, she may still be in the dark about the recent drama surrounding Ken! “I spoke with her yesterday and she hadn’t heard about that yet,” Kyle reveals of Ken’s activity on the Match.com dating site (he was last active a little over three weeks ago). Telling MailOnline that Kim avoids “magazines and websites,” Kyle, confesses she sure doesn’t want to be the one to fill her in on the gory details!

“My sister doesn’t read any magazines, she doesn’t look at any blogs or anything like that. Every now and then she gets on Twitter but she doesn’t pay attention to it,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star described. “I don’t tell her because I know eventually someone will say, ‘I heard or I read,’ but I don’t want to be that person,” Kyle explained. Sister of the year!

Kyle once again explains her reasons for questioning Kim’s relationship is out of concern. “I just really love my sister and I want the best for her, and I just don’t think that is the best situation for her.”

Disclosing that the two lovebirds are still together, although she hasn’t been invited over (why am I not surprised…), Kyle suspects Kim may be having some doubts about her relationship! “’I think she is beginning to come to her senses. I really hope she will.” As for Kim, she has yet to comment on any of it! I guess time will tell…

In other RHOBH news, is Taylor Armstrong the next Housewife to get the axe? A source supposedly connected to the show is telling In Touch Weekly: “With all the backlash from Russell [Armstrong]’s death, producers will most likely not renew her contract. She is in a fragile state.” This leaves us to wonder is Taylor about to join the ranks of fired Housewives?

Even more interesting, this isn’t the first time there have been whispers of Bravo firing Taylor following this season. The National Enquirer first reported the news last month.

In Touch also adds that Bravo has already invited back some RHOBH for season 3! “Kim, Kyle and Lisa are being asked to do the third season,” adds the source.

Poor Kim Richards seems like she can never get a break! After proclaiming to the world that she is truly happy with her new boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld, he’s not looking like such a great guy after all.

Kyle Richards recently took to her Bravo blog raising some concerns over her sister’s relationship with the mysterious Ken, who Kim was supposedly dating for a year before introducing him to her family!

As for fans wondering why Kim withheld her relationship from her sister, Kyle explains her relationship with Kim is complex and cannot be understood simply from watching the show. “This relationship is decades in the making. Plus, there are many contributing factors that you will never see because I am not comfortable sharing them with the world,” she asserts.

Kyle confirms that although Kim did attend a premiere with Ken for her niece Paris Hilton; neither, she nor their older sister Kathy Hilton, met him that night. “I started hearing about Kim’s ‘neighbor’ Ken from my nieces. Kim had been spending time over there, but still hadn’t shared anything with any of us.”

“I think it must look strange to you that I am crying over Kim moving in with a boyfriend that she seems to be happy with,” Kyle admits. “I have many reasons for not thinking Ken is the right person for Kim,” she explains, refusing to give anything away. “It looks as if I am crying because I want her to live closer to our family. Why do you think that is?”

“There are so many things I simply cannot say. If I say certain things that would explain everything better, I would be betraying my sister. If I ignore it in front of the cameras, people think I am blind,” she reveals. “For now, I have to wait until my sister is ready to speak up and explain things herself,” Kyle adds.

Perhaps Kyle’s concern is justified because it appears Ken has quite the shady past which makes him the perfect addition to Bravo! RadarOnline is reporting that in 2009, the 48-year-old Ken was arrested for a DUI! Kim, the sweet buy loopy star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills recently opened up about her struggles with alcoholism, even confessing on the show that she hopes never to drink again. This information about Ken strengthens recent suspicions that Kim has fallen off the wagon. A copy of Ken’s mugshot is below.

In addition to his own issues with alcohol use, it was recently reported that Ken is still active on the Internet dating site Match.com where he is listed as “separated.” In fact, Ken allegedly logged on as little as three weeks ago! Which is a problem considering Kim and Ken are apparently still together.

MailOnline has information from a source that claims Ken is a “nightmare” responsible for causing “several explosive arguments with Kim at his Westlake home.” In fact, one argument was apparently so bad Kim packed up and moved out. She was staying with a friend when Ken followed her there and “convinced” her to move back in with him! “He’s controlling and Kim shouldn’t be living at his home,” the source continues, echoing comments previously made by Kyle. “The family doesn’t like him.”

Kim’s family’s worry stems from the child-star’s past issues with addiction and recovery. Particularly, returning to the spotlight seems to have been nerve wracking for the very private Kim, who reportedly checked into rehab following last season’s explosive season finale episode. “Kim went through a lot last year with her drinking problem and the pressure from the show,” the source reveals. “Her relationships only trigger Kim’s addiction.” And based on Ken’s own DUI he may not be the best sober-partner!

Unfortunately, Kim seems blind to Ken’s manipulative ways. “Kim thinks she’s in love with someone who cares about her, but Ken is a controlling nightmare and he’s not right for her,” the source adds. “Kim should not be with this guy, he’s no good for her.” I hate to say it but maybe Kyle has a right to be worried!

THOUGHTS ON THE INFORMATION EMERGING ABOUT KIM’S BOYFRIEND? DO YOU BELIEVE HE IS BAD FOR HER OR CAN PEOPLE CHANGE? SHOULD KYLE GIVE KEN MORE OF A CHANCE?

A PICTURE OF KEN’S MUGSHOT IS  BELOW –


I don’t even know what to say about last night’s absolutely insane episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills except is Taylor on diet pills or crack cocaine? And was she seriously SERIOUSLY trying to stage a cast-wide mutiny against Lisa? Denile may be the longest river in Egypt, but Delusion is the longest road to crazytown.

Kyle meets Kim’s boyfriend Ken… and Kyle is not impressed – before she notices what could possibly be a wedding band! Kim explains it is only a promise ring (high school, much?). One reason Kyle is not happy with this relationship is that Kim’s kids have told her Ken is very controlling. Controlling or not, Kim is happy and for the first time in her life doing something she wants to do. Kyle, like the rest of us, will have to wait and see. So far, things aren’t looking good as apparently Ken is still active on Match.com. Oops!

When Kyle tells Mauricio about Kim’s surprise boyfriend, he’s pretty non-plused, but shocked she was able to keep it a secret for so long. Kyle decides she is going to borrow a trick her mom Big Kathy used when she didn’t like one of her daughter’s boyfriends – ignore him completely! That’s just what she plans to do about this whole Ken thing. Um…Kyle – remember YOU ARE NOT KIM’S MOTHER! (sorry – I think she deserved to be yelled at!)
