Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Camille Grammer and Lisa Vanderpump are both weighing in on Kim Richards’ struggles and her disappearance once again from a rehab facility. Both ladies are concerned about Richards’ safety and sobriety and hope that she stays away from reality television and moves her focus to getting well.
As reported in the Inquisitr, Kim Richards once again has left a rehabilitation facility without permission, putting her freedom in jeopardy as she is facing jail time for two different run-ins with police in the last six months. Kim Richards left this last facility the day after her family came for a visit.

Enstarz reported that both Camille Grammar and Lisa Vanderpump were expressing their concern about Richards’ mental state.
“I will reach out to her soon,” Grammer told Us Weekly during the event. “I mean, I feel bad for Kim. My thoughts and prayers are with her and I support her and I just want her to know I’m here for her if she needs anything.”
“Well, I’m sorry Kim’s not here because of the situation,” Vanderpump said of her co-stars’ absence. “That’s the thing. But I think her sobriety is more important than any reality show. And I think a lot of people recognize that fact and that’s probably why she’s not in this season.”

E! Online spoke to Lisa Vanderpump at the Hero Dog Awards luncheon about Richards.
“I haven’t spoken to Kim,” Vanderpump — who has previously explained that she feels it’s not her place to reach out — tells E! News at the Hero Dog Awards luncheon yesterday, which benefitted the AHA (American Humane Association).
“There are people who are closer to her to be honest, but I just wish her well. I’ve kind of always supported her really, and I think everybody does. I think they all want her to be successful in her sobriety.”

Both women are concerned about Kim Richards’ well-being but say that they are getting most of their information on her status from her sister Kyle, says the International Business Times.
“I’m not that close to Kim, obviously I’m closer to Kyle [Richards]. I’ve heard updates and stuff. But it’s a sad situation,” she [Vanderpump] said.
