Bravo friends Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards are back in touch, and recently saw one another after Richards’ arrest.
On April 16, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel after suffering an alcohol relapse a few months prior. On the night of her arrest, Richards had been drinking at her daughter’s house before traveling to the hotel, where she had a few more drinks at the Polo Lounge.
“I saw Kim last Sunday. She’s doing good! She’s doing great,” Glanville told Us Weekly during her Unfiltered wine launch on Thursday, April 30.
The Bravo friends are close these days, but they weren’t always friends. In fact, the Bravo friends started out on the wrong foot on Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, when Glanville accused Richards of doing drugs in Dana Wilkey’s bathroom. Then, seasons later, the Bravo friends began a relationship, and also hung out together off camera.
Now, although Glanville didn’t confirm it, it appears Glanville has been seeing Richards in rehab, and will continue to do so throughout her stay.
“I’ll see her again this Sunday.”
As for whether or not Richards is taking her recovery seriously, Glanville told the magazine, “Yes, absolutely. Yep.”
Also in her interview, Glanville addressed her relationship with her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, and his wife, LeAnn Rimes, who she invited to her event.
“Yeah, I’m totally fine with that. I saw them yesterday at Jake’s game. They RSVP’d. They’re not coming but… [it was a nice gesture].”
Another Bravo friend Glanville has kept in touch with is Yolanda Foster. However, she was unable to attend Glanville’s wine launch, and no other members of the cast were seen.
“I’ve always stayed in touch with Yolanda [Foster]. I talked to her this morning, she’s in Germany. She’s very very sick still.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Richards’ daughters, Brooke Brinson and Kimberly Davis, recently weighed in on the Bravo friends’ relationship. Speaking to Dr. Phil, via AllAboutTRH, Brinson and Davis said the Bravo friends had a good relationship, and noted Glanville had been there for Richards throughout the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5.
“She’s kind of been the one whose [sic] kind of had my Mom’s back.”
“I don’t know Brandi that well. I can see where people think it makes my Mom look bad on the show, but I’ve never really spent time with her.”
The Bravo friends’ relationship has been criticized both on the show and off the show, because of the negative impact it seems to have on Richards’ relationship with her sister, Kyle.
