It was revealed yesterday that Kim Richards from the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” had entered rehab, reportedly for alcohol abuse and “serious issues”.
It was discovered today that while viewers watched Kim fall in love – and prepare to move in with – her boyfriend Ken, they have since broken up, leaving Kim without a place to live.
“He’s not in the picture. No one really knows what the deal was with them, but Kim doesn’t live with Ken,” the source says. “She’s basically homeless, staying with various friends. She doesn’t have a home base. It’s not unusual for people to not hear from her for long stretches of time. It’s been that way for years.”
Kim’s erratic behavior, including anxiety attacks and the slurring of words, were explained on the show as a result of medication.
Her fellow housewives have lent their support. Adrienne Maloof told Us Weekly, “I wish her well. It’s a step in the right direction.”
Taylor Armstrong, who has battled her own demons the last few months, sent this message on “Watch What Happens Live:” “I adore Kim and I stand behind her. And if there’s anything I can do to support her [I will]; but if she’s getting healthy what more could we ask.”
Toofab spoke to Lisa Vanderpump Monday, who didn’t address Kim’s issues directly, but talked about this the camaraderie among the cast. “We really do all support each other and love each other. Really. I think it shows through even though we have our moments.”
We all with her well!
Man, this season of RHOBH is painful to watch! Between Kim’s erratic behavior and Taylor losing control, it’s an emotional roller coaster!!
