Interestingly the former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star is finally admitting that she has battled with alcoholism for most of adult life and has been in and out of rehab. Obviously this has majorly affected the lives of Kim’s four children, Brooke, Whitney, Chad, and Kimberly.

Kimberly Jackson, who appears on The Mother/Daughter Experiment alongside Kim, confesses her childhood was difficult. “Watching her go through a hard time and not being able to rely on her, it was so scary for me.”
After getting arrested twice, and several stints in rehab (plus televised therapy), Kim promises she’s finally on the right track.
“I’m glad it happened when it did,” says Brooke Wiederhorn. “It got her strong for [when] Monty did pass away. Maybe if it hadn’t happened, things would have gotten really bad. But she went through rehab and she got stronger than ever.”
Kim believes Monty is watching over her and her sobriety. “I miss him a lot. He was my best friend. I confided in him. He knew everything. And I know he’s still up there pushing me to do what I need to do. He’s our angel.”
Agrees Kimberly, “Everything has come to a calm. Things have never felt better.”
“I’ve made mistakes, but I keep trying,” defends Kim. “I’ve never done anything intentionally to hurt my children. And I hope, for their sake and for the sake of one day my beautiful grandchildren who will come, that this is it.”
As for remaining sober for the rest of her life, Kim acknowledges, “There are no guarantees.”
I want to say this is Kim finally taking accountability, but after watching Mother/Daughter Experiment and her recent WWHL appearance, I think this is more of Kim’s usual PR spiel of hollow promises and absolutions. I hope for the sake of her children she will stop with the denial, deflection, and excuses and truly get therapeutic help.
