Kim Richards decided to visit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion this week to update Andy Cohen and the ladies about her life. Richards had decided not to film this past season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because she wanted to focus on her life, her family, and her sobriety. And Kim has previously revealed that being on a reality show hasn’t helped her sobriety. Last spring, Richards was arrested twice, which didn’t really help her family situation.
According to a new Bravo report, Kim Richards is now revealing that she’s doing good after leaving the show behind. Kim is still in touch with Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster, and more recently, her sister, Kyle Richards. Of course, many people wanted to know if Kim is speaking to her sister, especially since they have had a rocky road.
“Also, this last year with my sister Kyle was a difficult time, and I missed her a lot. It was a rough one, but I am grateful to be where I am today. I want to thank you for all the love and support. The words of encouragement from all of you and the fellow sisters out there were so helpful. Of course, Kyle and I had to be ready in our time and do the work ourselves. But it was encouraging to hear about other sisters in our corner. So many thanks to all of you,” Kim Richards reveals in her blog for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Even though Kim and Kyle are speaking these days, it sounds like they are still treading carefully around one another. Richards has been battling addiction issues, and Kyle has revealed that she’s scared of what could possibly happen with her sister. Plus, Kim Richards recently lost her best friend and ex-husband, Monty, to cancer, and for a while, Kyle was nervous that his death could result in a relapse. But it sounds like Kim has a great support system these days.
Richards hasn’t watched the entire season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this year, even though her sister and her former co-stars continue to film the show. Instead, she’s been focusing on her sobriety. But when she showed up to the reunion show, Kim was shocked to hear Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson’s comments about her life.
“I have to be honest and say that I didn’t get to see the whole season. I was really focusing on myself, my family and taking care of my best friend. But from what I did see, things seemed to only get worse with Lisa Rinna, and I and wasn’t even there to engage with her. I always seemed to be a constant topic of conversation for her and Eileen,” Kim Richards writes in her blog, adding that Lisa and Eileen’s comments are not as caring.
Kim feels that she’s hearing the same comments about her life from these ladies. She feels that they are always saying that they are sorry for her and that they want the best for her. But Kim feels that Eileen and Lisa are living their lives through others since they spend so much time talking about her.
“Living their lives constantly through other people’s worlds can’t be fun. Certainly there is no real happiness always storing and harboring negative energies,” Richards reveals in her blog, sharing that she’s happy because she’s living her life for herself.
