Kim Richards Rehab

Ramona Singer with Wine

In the wake of Luann de Lessepstrip to rehab, former (and present) stars of Real Housewives Of New York and other franchises are speaking out about the producers’ tactics to allegedly push alcohol on the women in an effort to solicit big drama. This accusation is nothing new, but the details are quite illuminating and provide an interesting testimony for the behind-the-scenes workings of the show.

Spurned Housewives Aviva Drescher and Kelly Bensimon tell their stories, with tidbits added from Heather Thomson (who quit the show), Gretchen Rossi, and others about their experiences.

Aviva, known for the infamous prosthetic leg toss on the finale of season 6, was part of the RHONY cast reboot after season 4 and appeared on the show for two seasons (“writer girl“). Kelly, obviously, is notorious for her feuds with Bethenny Frankel culminating in Scary Island. Both women, along with some current housewives who chose to remain anonymous, claim there is a vested interest to push booze on the cast – even if it’s clearly against their best interest.

Kim Richards With Children

Kim Richards is getting candid about her battle with sobriety and how her struggles with addiction have affected her children. 

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

“I felt terrible for my children,” Kim confesses. “That was the thing that bothered me most. I cried because I hurt my kids.” Oh, so that was the cause of Kim’s hysterics on Dr. Phil? Uh-huh.

Kim Richards

Kim Richards sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last night. Kim talked about her sobriety, her legal problems, her current opinion of Lisa Rinna, her name popping up on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills every two minutes, and more.

Kim said she is “doing great” since Monty Brinson‘s passing. “I was not really sure how I would be,” admitted Kim. “I was a little nervous myself. But, my family and I, we’re all sticking very close together. He’s our angel over us. It’s amazing. I’m doing great.” Kim went on to explain why she’s keeping the details about her recovery private this go-round.

The Duggars - Now Canceled 19 Kids & Counting

One thing we can always count on reality TV stars for is drama! As 2015 comes to a close we’re revisiting the year’s most shocking and scandalous headlines. And of course we’re eager to see what 2016 has in store. 

Among the craziest stories this year, notorious Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice self-surrendered to federal prison, and Vicki Gunvalson‘s ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers admitted to faking cancer documents.

Probably the biggest headline concerned the Duggar family, formerly one of TLC’s most popular attractions until eldest son Josh Duggar undid the family dynasty! The Conservative Family Values advocate found himself embroiled in two extremely salacious sex scandals. TLC ultimately canceled 19 Kids & Counting.

This was just the latest bad press for the network: in 2014 their once-popular Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled when matriarch Mama June was caught dating the man who served time in prison for molesting her eldest daughter Anna. TLC also continues to face controversy over Kate Plus 8, which returned to television following a long hiatus.

Kim Richards Talks Sobriety On Entertainment Tonight

Kim Richards is baaaaack to ramble about “MY SOBRIETY” again. After being in and out of several rehabs following an April arrest, Kim insists, “I love sobriety!” And this time she plans to stay that way. We’ll believe it when we see it — hopefully NOT on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!

“I’ve always loved sobriety,” Kim declares. “Relapsing was very hard for me.” Kim blames Kyle Richards and other family issues for her very-public falling off of the wagon. Isn’t one of the steps taking accountability? “Monty, my ex-husband, is very sick and my son wasn’t well. And I had to give away my dog, and I wasn’t talking to my sister.”

Kim Richards

According to reports Kim Richards has ditched rehab – again! The embattled former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star was getting treatment at a fancy-schmancy Malibu program, but fled in the middle of the night! Kim is apparently the Houdini of high-class treatment facilities… 

Kim has been in and out of rehab since her April arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She left one facility, then was kicked out of second because she went MIA in a Mexican bender at her daughter Brooke’s May wedding. Kim checked into a third facility when family members cut her off financially and she lost her job with Bravo; but also because she hoped to avoid jail time after being charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a cop.

Kim Richards and Monty Brinson

Last week, I assumed Monty Brinson visited Kim Richards in rehab when he shared the picture above with the caption, “A beautiful day with Kim Richards on this summer day.” But.. is the fired Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star out of rehab?

Kim and Monty spent July 4th together, too, so what gives? Did Monty return to the rehab (with his ex-wife Terri Lynn Doss and his daughter Madelyn in tow) to celebrate the holiday with Kim? Or did someone of questionable intelligence approve yet another “leave rehab to party” pass for Kim? Check out Monty’s photos and captions (all rainbows and butterflies) below and let us know where you think Kim is.

Kim Richards is a lucky lady – prosecutors have offered her a plea deal for her charges of public intoxication, resisting arresting, and battery against a police officer. If the sobriety-challenged Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star accepts the deal, she won’t have to serve jail time! 

Yesterday, Kim, through her attorney Robert Shapiro, entered “not guilty” pleas to all three charges. The former Housewife was not present at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse because she is currently in rehab (again)
