“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards is now ready to get some help after dealing with alcohol and sobriety issues.
It was about two weeks when Richards was apprehended for being publicly drunk. The charges also included trespassing and resisting tests conducted by a police officer. A report from E! News said, the reality TV star has finally entered rehab.
Meanwhile, a source told People, “Kim went to rehab finally because she got arrested, she humiliated her kids and she wants to avoid jail.” E! News also reached out to the actress’ representatives to comment on the issue.
Kim Richards decided to get into rehab days before an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw was scheduled to go on air. A sneak preview was shown last week where the 50-year-old actress admitted she was having a hard time struggling with her sobriety.
In the preview, Kim Richards was heard saying, “I poured a drink of vodka, and I thought, ‘Oh my God, what have I done? I’m beating myself up over this.”
A heated discussion followed after when the host dug deeper and asked about the alcohol issues Kim has been confronted. Dr. Phil asked, “Are you living a lie telling everybody, ‘I’ve been sober for three years? You are drunk in a bar fighting with a cop. That is not good mothering.”
However, Kim Richards find the matter too much to handle and asked before walking out of the interview, “Is this an intervention?” Finally, the Bravo star said she can’t continue and stormed her way out.
Kim has been confronted with alcohol and sobriety issues even during the set of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” where her behavior has been caught on cam. Seven seasons later, Kim Richards is still being asked if she was sober enough. E! News reported that Kim even admitted to take a pain pill belonging to her ex-husband.
