Kim Richards Talks To Brandi Glanville On Podcast, Reveals She Is Sober

Kim Richards of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been through a rough year, but things are looking up for the reality star. This week, Kim went on Brandi Glanville’s podcast Unfiltered to speak out and discuss how things are going for her now. Even though Kim took some time off from the show to work on herself, fans want to know how she is doing. People shared what Kim had to say about life now and being sober. It does sound like Richards is doing great and working hard on staying sober.

Richards shared that it is a good time for her right now and things are going well. Kim explained how living in the present has helped her a lot.

“Living in the present for me is just the best way and it’s the only way for me today. Realizing today is beautiful and I’m super grateful for right now and all who’s in it.”

Next season of RHOBH will be without both Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville. Of course, it will take a bit of getting used to not having them on the show, but considering they still have ties to it, you never know if they will show up at a party or two. Kim’s sister Kyle will still be on the show even though Kim won’t. Glanville spoke out about not returning to the show, and she is actually happy about it.

“We were both saying it’s relaxing for us and we’re not so stressed out with everything that we would normally be stressed out with. We wake up with smiles on our face and we don’t have to deal with the drama.”

Of course, Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville are missing out on that paycheck, but other than that, it sounds like not being on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a great thing for them. Kim admits to going through a rough patch, but things are good for her now. Everyone is glad to see that she is finally sober and seems to have her act together. Her sister Kyle even revealed recently that Kim Richards is doing “really well right now.” It looks like Kim and Kyle are working through their differences, but Kyle did share that “sisters do go through difficult times.”

About a month ago, E! Online shared that Kim Richards was looking happy and healthy while out having fun. She was hanging out with Yolanda Foster and Brandi Glanville at the time. Even though her time on the show is over, it looks like Kim has kept her friendships from the show going. They were out celebrating Kim Richards’ birthday. Yolanda will be on the show less as well due to her health issues, and fans are going to really miss seeing her.

Kim Richards has been battling an addiction with alcohol. Fans have seen a lot of it on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as everyone tried to reach out and get her the help that she needed. Richards spent some time in rehab over the summer to work on her sobriety. Back in April, Kim Richards was arrested and charged with public intoxication, resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer or EMT, and battery upon a peace officer. Kim did plead no contest, but she received probation and some community labor as well. Luckily Kim didn’t end up having to spend an extended amount of time in jail on her charges.
