Kim Richards turned her daughter's wedding into an occasion for her friends and family to become concerned about her intoxicated state. From her sister Kyle Richards to her daughter Brooke, Kim's relatives fretted when they learned that the former child star had become drunk again after leaving rehab, reported MSN.
But her meltdown was so severe that Kim's sober coach resigned. Moreover, Brooke will no longer speak to her mother. It's not yet known if drugs or alcohol caused Kim to go on the bender.
However, it was obvious that Richards was high at the wedding, making such cruel comments to her daughter that the disaffection was inevitable, according to TMZ.
"[Kim was] a mess," confirmed multiple insiders of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality TV star.
The intoxicated Richards swore Brooke's new husband and family, causing Brooke to take a different kind of vow, which involves avoiding Kim completely.
Although Richards' rehab treatment center had provided her with a pass to go to the wedding, she was supposed to head back on Memorial Day. She did not do so, and the sober coach, when she found she could not manage Kim, abandoned the situation after the wedding ceremony.
What's next for Kim, who is now AWOL (away without leave) from rehab? As the Inquisitr reported, Richards' rehab stint was prefaced by an attempt at an intervention from Dr. Phil and her children.
The Dr. Phil interview revealed Kim's use of non-prescription drugs as well as alcohol.
"You haven't been sober," accused her son Chad.
"Yeah, but Chad. I'm not drinking every day," defended Kim.
However, Chad went into detail about his mother's use of pills.
In addition to unveiling Kim's addiction, the interview also gave Richards the chance to vent about her sister Kyle Richards.
Before she left, Kim blamed sister Kyle Richards for her relapse.
"Let me remind you that it isn't the blog or the season that upset me. It was the relationship with my sister. And my niece — that's been destroyed. Yeah, the mean comments got to me. It's the overall outcome of where my relationships are with the people that I love the most. And that's what started getting me upset the most."Also during the Dr. Phil interview, Kim talked about her life when she is sober, reported Us Weekly.
"I know I've put a huge dent in the work that I've worked so hard to build over the past few years," Richards declared. "I just want to do the right thing and I want to be the strongest I can be. I know that me sober, I can handle almost anything."
