According to a not so shocking report by Star magazine, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has fallen off the wagon.
In light of Kim’s recent odd behavior on the Bravo hit show, sources say she is back to drinking heavily as the mag reveals those close to her even staged a mini intervention on Oct. 24.
If you recall, Kim’s sister Kyle Richards had some harsh words for Kim, 47, during last season’s volatile finale. “You’re an alcoholic! Yes that’s right. I’ve said it now and everybody knows,” said Kyle to Kim during their fight in the limo.

Star states that after hearing her sister’s harsh words last year, Kim actually checked herself into rehab. Fast forward to today and unfortunately for Kim, her drinking issues have reportedly taken a turn for the worst.
“Kim drinks daily and doesn’t recognize she has a serious problem,” a source reveals. “Kim fell down in her kitchen on Oct. 22, holding a glass of wine in her hand when she went down.”
Star reports that Kim — red-eyed and reeking of booze — however assured her friends all was well and that she was simply suffering from a little dehydration. “We were all concerned,” the insider adds.
Even worse, some of Kim’s friends suspect she is doing a little more than just boozing. “I suspect Kim is on prescription meds,” the source reveals. “She’s always popping white pills of some sort, so who knows what she’s on.” TMZ posted a clip of Kim last year, in which she was popping pills at an airport.
During the staged intervention on Oct. 24, Kim was reportedly reluctant to listen to her friends’ concerns. “When I questioned her about her alcohol use, she told me, ‘I’m not an alcoholic. I’m just a serious social drinker,'” reveals one of Kim’s pals who was a part of the failed intervention.
As for Kim, she has yet to comment on this latest report by Star though she did break her silence a week ago revealing that while she has had past issues with alcohol, all is well with her today. As for her behavior on the show, which included frequent bathroom visits during the infamous ‘game night from hell,’ Kim stated it was result of new meds given to her for her anxiety issues.
