Celebrity Rehab 2011: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards checks into rehab during finale.
Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star Kim Richards allegedly spent a week’s time in rehab following the inebriated fight between her and her sister, Kyle Richards. The 46-year-old reality show star engaged in a vehement argument in which Kim called Kyle “phony”, and Kyle called Kim “delusional” and “demented.”
Kyle Richards also took the fight to another level when she called Kim an alcoholic, saying, “You are a liar, and sick, and alcoholic. You are an alcoholic. That’s right. I said it and everybody knows”. The fight appears to have had a profound effect on both sisters, with Kim’s subsequent stint in rehab.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season finale updated viewers with the following message at the end: “Kim’s family checked her into rehab . . . A week later, she checked herself out. She is taking her life one day at a time.” One week in rehab isn’t a long period of time at all, and hopefully Kim is getting the help she needs via moral support from family and friends.
As far as the two sisters are concerned, the women haven’t spoken with one another since the fatal argument. Kyle has expressed deep regrets about the incident, and has written on her blog about having experienced feelings of panic and anxiety since the confrontation. She also writes, “Next to losing my mother, this was the most difficult time of my life.”
