Drugs Are Bad M’Kay: Beverly Hills Wackiest “Real Housewife” Kim Richards Finally Goes To Rehab

- By Bossip Staff

So Brandi was totally on the money after all!

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards has checked into rehab again, reports say.

The 47-year-old mother of four, whose half-sister is Kathy Hilton, is seeking treatment at an undisclosed location, reports Entertainment Tonight. It’s also unclear what Richards is seeking treatment for, though she has admitted to struggling with alcoholism in the past.

Richards’ substance abuse issues were revealed in the first season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when she got in a fight with her sister, Kyle Richards. “You act like an insane person,” her sister said. “You are a liar and sick and an alcoholic. That’s right. I said it and now everybody knows.”

Shortly after the fight, Kim Richards’ family checked her into rehab. After leaving the facility, Richards resumed filming the Bravo show. But questions about her dependencies surfaced once again when new “Real Housewife” Brandi Glanville accused Richards of doing “crystal meth in the bathroom all night.”

Richards defended herself against the allegation via Twitter.

“For someone who doesn’t know me personally to outright accuse me of using crystal meth leaves me bewildered … Drug abuse isn’t something you just throw around as a jab,” she wrote. “I told the others that night, that I had just left my doctor’s for treatment of my anxiety and panic disorder … He had given me medication for it … I’ll be the first to admit that I have struggled in the past with certain vices; but I have never in my life, EVER, used crystal meth. I have discussed openly my issues with alcohol. As many of you know, sobriety is a lifetime process.”

Before becoming a “Real Housewife,” Richards was a child actress, starring in Disney’s “Escape to Witch Mountain” and guest starring on series like “Diff’rent Strokes,” “The Love Boat” and “The Dukes of Hazzard.” More recently, she played Christina Ricci’s mother in the film “Blake Snake Moan.”

This chick is Paris Hilton’s aunt, so who knows what she’s on…

All jokes aside we really hope that Kim gets the help she needs.
