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