A visit to Whole Foods reportedly turned dramatic for Kim Richards after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was told she would not be able to buy salmon salad.
On January 28, a source revealed to Life & Style magazine that Richards had been shopping at a Santa Monica Whole Foods on January 17, when, seemingly out of nowhere, Richards lost her cool.
“[Richards] approached a store clerk and asked him for salmon salad. He politely told her they may not have any.”
Unfortunately, for Richards, that was the wrong answer.
“She went ballistic on him. She threw her basket and all her food at him, screaming, ‘What does it matter, anyway?’ Then she ran out of the store!”
In the recent weeks leading up to Richards’ alleged meltdown at Whole Foods, the reality star and mother of four appeared to have suffered a relapse on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. During the latest couple of episodes, Richards was seen slurring her words and making senseless statements. Still, in her Bravo blog, as reported by the Inquisitr, she insisted she was still sober.
“Before the poker party took place, I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. I went to the doctor several times because I was in so much pain, so I really was in no shape to go to the spa day or poker night. And I definitely didn’t want to go out when Monty came back to the house before poker night after being gone for a couple days. I just wanted to stay at home with him, but I had to go to Eileen’s with the girls.”
Also in her blog, Richards revealed she had taken pain medication given to her by her ex-husband, which is likely what caused her to appear inebriated.
“I took the pain medication from Monty thinking it can get me through the pain I was experiencing. Little did I know, it just made me kind of out of it! But seriously, if I knew the medication was going to affect me in a negative way, I would have NEVER taken it. Careless decision on my part—lesson learned!”
Despite Richards’ comments about her sobriety being in order, many fans and co-stars have had their doubts. During the show, Lisa Rinna didn’t hesitate to acknowledge that Richards didn’t seem sober, and Eileen Davidson appeared to be curious, as well.
Kim Richards has yet to release a statement regarding her alleged Whole Foods temper tantrum.
