The Real Housewives star Kyle Richards is reportedly refusing to speak to sister Kim after her shocking arrest on April 16. According to a new report, the entire Richards family, including Kyle, and her oldest sister, Kathy Hilton, has gone into crisis mode after Kim’s alleged relapse.
“The whole family has been worried about Kim,” a source close to the Real Housewives star told Radar Online.
“Kyle has been saying that Kim needs help for months and she wasn’t shocked when she learned she got arrested. She wants their sister Kathy [Hilton] to help convince Kim to get treatment and to face her issues. She isn’t talking to Kim right now.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Real Housewives star was arrested around 1:30 a.m. this morning after reportedly getting drunk at the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge in Los Angeles, California. Earlier today, a separate Radar Online report alleged Richards had been drinking vodka tonics before locking herself in a restroom and refusing to come out.
A source told Radar Online that the Real Housewives star became irate after the bartender on site refused to serve her more alcohol, and went into the bathroom before police were called.
“At some point after midnight, the bartender decided that Kim had enough to drink, and refused to serve her. She became very, very angry, and loudly said, ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ She eventually locked herself in a bathroom and was refusing to come out and causing a scene. Cops had to be called at that point.”
According to the first Radar Online source, the Real Housewives star’s family wasn’t completely sure of Kim’s sobriety in recent weeks, so when they were informed of the arrest, no one was all too surprised. Still, the family is very concerned for Kim, and wants her to get help right away.
“They never thought she was sober and this is really upsetting them. They’re in crisis mode right now.”
In response to the news of Kyle’s alleged refusal to speak to Kim after her arrest, Lisa Vanderpump spoke out, telling Radar Online their story was inaccurate.
