Kim Richards Talks Life After Rehab and Arrest: ‘I’m Just So Grateful to Be Where I Am Today’


Kim Richards is opening up about overcoming her struggles and welcoming new challenges in the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

“Before I started the show, life was really good and then, you know, things happened and it wasn’t,” she told reporters at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 7 premiere party at the Sofitel Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, California, on Friday. “And it wasn’t just my relapse that was hard, but I went through a depression as well after that.”

Looking back, Richards said she feels “so happy” now.

“I’m just so grateful to be where I am today, and to be this happy and have life this good and have the relationships that I have … I feel so blessed,” she said. “I feel powerful. I feel so grateful. Honestly. Life is so amazing today. I wake up happy. I go to sleep happy…”

But her happiness has been a long time coming. Richards, 50, who originally entered rehab following her April arrest for public intoxication, decided to leave her Malibu treatment facility for her daughter’s nuptials in May 2015. She checked herself back in two weeks later. The reality star and former child actress also entered rehab back in 2011.

“I was really busy this season with my home, my daughters, my son and my grandchild,” she said, when asked about her presence in the new season. “My focus was really on my family.”

As for drama in the upcoming season, Richards said it’s difficult to avoid.

“Well I really wouldn’t go that far!” she said, when asked if there was less drama in season 7. “I managed to make a little time to get by to say ‘Hi’ to everybody, but I don’t know if I squeezed out leaving out the drama. It wasn’t my doing, but you know, leave it to the [Lisa] Rinna!”

Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif Attack Brandi Glanville Over ‘Surrogate’ Claim, Threaten Lawsuit


Adrienne Maloof and husband Paul Nassif used a surrogate to have their three children, fellow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Brandi Glanville alleges.

The Adrienne Maloof surrogate claim was made at a gathering where Maloof was not present, causing a controversy among the reality show’s stars in a recent episode, Reality TV Magazine noted.

“There’s a gathering that most of the cast attends except Adrienne,” a source said. “And during the party, Brandi takes issue with the fact that Adrienne insists she had her three boys naturally, while Brandi insists Paul and Adrienne used a surrogate.”

Later, housewife Kim Richards relays Glanville’s comments to Adrienne Maloof and Paul, feeding into some underlying animosity the couple already had for Glanville.

“Brandi and Adrienne already had some underlying issues with each other … and Brandi has a very knee-jerk reaction when she thinks people are lying or being fake,” the source said. “This was her way of reacting to something she though Adrienne was being dishonest about.”

The Adrienne Maloof surrogate claim is likely to feed into the escalating drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Wet Paint suggests. It already has brought a half-hearted apology from Glanville.

“My mouth gets me in a lot of trouble, but this time I’ve pissed off the wrong rich person,” she wrote in her Bravo blog.

Glanville has some beefs of her own with Adrienne Maloof, who claimed that Glanville sleeps until 3 pm and leaves her children alone during that time.

This brought the fighting side out of Brandi Glanville.

“Normally I would laugh it off,” Brandi wrote about Adrienne Maloof’s comments. “But when the lies involve my children, like any good mother, ALL BETS ARE OFF!”

Brandi Glanville Cries Over Photos of Herself Looking ‘Wasted’: ‘I Embarrassed My Kids’

Brandi Glanville is owning up to her mistakes.

After unflattering paparazzi photos surfaced of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alumna during a night out in Los Angeles last week, she got candid with her fans in an emotional video posted on her Instagram Story.

“For those of you that want to judge me, you can, all you want,” she said between sobs in the video, which was reposted by a Real Housewives fan account.

“But I’m telling you, I’m embarrassed,” she continued. “And sometimes, you know, you see your friends with their perfect husbands and they have their kids full-time, and I don’t have that. And then there’s a worry that I’m going to grow old alone.”
