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.
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.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Yolanda Foster has been very public about her battle with Lyme Disease. Now Yolanda is part of a new campaign to raise awareness for Lyme Disease, which affects millions of Americans each year. Yolanda has enlisted her fellow Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills stars to snap a photo for the ‘Take A Bite Out Of Lyme’ challenge, which is also supported by Dr. Oz.
“It takes a village, please pass it on…….. #WeMustFindACure #LymeDiseaseChallenge #TakeABiteOutOfLyme I challenge @Lisavanderpump @kylerichards18 @lisarinna @eileendavidson @brandiglanville2 @kimrichards11 @bravoandy @dr_Oz,” Yolanda shared on instagram with a photo of herself and the ever-supportive David taking a bite out of a lime.
The RHOBH ladies, plus other reality stars got in on the action to raise awareness. You can see the photos below! And if you want to contribute your own photo to the challenge, simply bite a lime, snap it, and caption it with #TakeABiteOutOfLyme on twitter or instagram.
Man – I’m disappointed in Bravo. They left out all the fun stuff from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills to focus on Kim “RAMBLES OF MY SOBRIETY” Richards. Yes, we missed Eileen Davidson announcing she’s driving her Ford Flex to collect her Emmy, so we could instead hear KimKillah wax poetic about all the terrible things HARRY did while Lisa Rinna was sleeping, only to deny she ever said them because she doesn’t remember, only to admit she made the whole implication up! Anyway, Bravo – more Emmys and less Kimmies. (And how gorgeous did Eileen look in her Emmy gown).
So, what else happened. Oh – Yolanda Foster “downsized.” With Mauricio as her guide towards these uncharted territories of humble abodes, Yolanda house hunted. Yes – she realized having a 4,000 tree lemon grove was just a touch too much even for her perma-master cleanse state of being, so she looked at houses in the 8,000 – 4,500 square-foot range. But oh, they were just not for Yo!
Kyle Richards has had a traumatic season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. From physical altercations, to major family dramas, to losing and gaining friendships. But hey, at least she finally got back into the good graces of viewers! KaChanelChing for popularity!
With part 3 of the reunion featuring a dramatic showdown between Kyle and Kim Richards over Kingsley biting Kyle’s daughter Alexia, Kyle has some information to clear-up. She also comments on Brandi Glanville‘s ridiculous accusations and Lisa Rinna‘s text message drama.
In her final blog, which Kyle admits she didn’t “want to write” (but she is contractually obligated to (and isn’t going to run-out and get smashed at a posh hotel then assault police officers instead of doing her job), she says things between herself and KimKillah have a long, long, LONG way to go before they’re resolved. If ever… but she is done taking the blame and keeping quiet!
One might think that being arrested for public intoxication and assaulting a police officer at a swanky Beverly Hills hotel would be rock bottom for Kim Richards, but not so say sources who reveal Kim has isolated herself from friends and family and remains completely in denial about her drinking. Guess that’s why she’s buddied up to enabler Brandi Glanville!
Kim, who was arrested on Thursday at Beverly Hills’ Polo Lounge when she refused to leave after disturbing and harassing other patrons, continues to insist she’s fine and doesn’t need help with her super amazing sobriety. She just got drunk that one time to deal with her horrible pain of being a reality star and her sobriety is perfect and she’s been sobriety for three years! Don’t talk about my sobriety which isn’t a problem having a sobriety! So everyone leave MY SOBRIETY alone! I digress.
