Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Kim Richards seems to be enjoying her life lately. But that has not always been the case as Kim struggled with her sobriety, and legal issues. Kim had an alcohol-fueled breakdown at the Beverly Hills Hotel in April of 2015 and was charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery on a police officer. Later that year, the former child star tried to shoplift two carts of merchandise from Target. Who doesn’t love Target?
Kim was not sentenced to jail, but was granted probation, and had to attend AA meetings and perform community service. She finally completed her probation in September of 2018. Kim also endured the passing of her ex-husband Marty Brinson, who was her best friend, in 2016. They share a daughter, Brooke Wiederhorn.
Now Kim has a lot to be excited about. Kim’s daughter, Brooke, gave birth to son Hucksley Wiederhorn in September of 2016. Brooke is married to Thayer Wiederhorn. The proud grandmother took to Instagram to share her joy. (These posts are a bit rough in the grammar department.) “Our little Hucksley has arrived! I’m am so proud of my little girl. He is beautiful and perfect! I loved him before he arrived… and now… I’m over the top .. this feeling is unbelievable!! I’m so in love, ”Kim stated.
On Thanksgiving, Brooke shared on Instagram that another baby boy was on the way. And now Kim is a grandmother once again! According to an article on Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Brooke welcomed son Hunter Montgomery on April 18, 2019. Brooke posted about her newest arrival on Instagram. Really- is there another way to deliver baby news? “Hunter Montgomery, thank you for making our family complete! Our hearts are so full,” Brooke wrote. She also shared a cute photo of Hucksley holding the newborn.
Back in March, Kim and her sisters Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton attended a baby shower for Brooke. Kim wrote on Instagram, “What a beautiful day Showering Our @brookewiederhorn Looking like a real life Barbie absolutely stunning & glowing. Our day was filled love, family & close friends,” she said.
In The Daily Dish article, Kyle explained the current dynamic with her sisters to RHOBH fans. “Everything is good, we’re spending time together, we’re laughing, and having fun again,” Kyle dished. “I guess the one good thing that came out of American Woman not getting picked up for a second season is my sisters and I are all speaking again, which makes me feel very happy,” Kyle added. Now that sounds promising.
Kim has at least one cameo on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season. She even popped up in the same restaurant as the Beverly Hills ladies during the most recent episode. Lisa Rinna could barely contain her excitement and mustered up a wave. I am so glad that everything is going well for Kim, and that she is enjoying being a grandmother. Congratulations on your new grandson, Kim!
