Real Housewives: Kim Richards Enters Rehab

Those who watch The Real Housewives might not be shocked at Kim Richards’ decision to enter a rehab facility, but if sources are to be believed, she did so at exactly the right time. Her relationship with family members has supposedly been at a low point for months thanks to her alcoholism and their refusal to “coddle” her. Given how adversely being enabled typically affects those with an addiction, the family’s unwillingness to cater to Richards will probably help her in the long run. For the time being, it’s gotten her into rehab, and that’s a victory in and of itself.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Kim has sought professional help. She’s been to rehab at least once already, but that’s not really a surprise since alcoholism can often be a lifelong struggle. According to US Weekly, those around her are very pleased and remain hopeful this will be the jolt Richards needed.
Prior to joining the cast of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Richards had a very strange life. She was a child star in the early 1970s, appearing in dozens of tv shows and movies. In the early 1990s, she was engaged to a commodities salesman that got murdered (not by her), and she later married billionaire Marvin Davis’ son. Humorously, all that looks positively normal compared to the life of her sister Kathy who hung out with Michael Jackson, married Richard Hilton and birthed Paris.
Pop Blend wishes Kim Richards nothing but the best in her recovery. It’s never to late to choose sobriety.
