Bravo has just wrapped up filming a three-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special, which will kick off on January 30. The reunion was originally taped without one of it’s housewives, Kim Richards, who was undergoing treatment for substance abuse. Up until now, we didn’t know exactly what demons Kim was battling. Until now!
In a new interview that was filmed separately, Andy Cohen sits down with Kim and asks her why she checked into rehab. Kim answered, “I’m an alcoholic, I’m an alcoholic.”
Here’s what else is coming up in the reunion specials:
In part one, expect the ladies – Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump – to delve into the confrontation between Camille and Taylor at Lisa’s tea party, among other hot-button issues and feuds. And clearly there’s still bad blood among many of the women.
Kyle tangles with Lisa; Camille and Taylor rehash their issues (“She completely threw me under the bus,” Camille says, referring to Armstrong); and Lisa and Adrienne spar after Lisa is accused of selling stories to tabloids.
On the second part (airing Feb. 6, 9 p.m. ET), newbie Brandi Glanville joins the women to defend her controversial comments all season – only she seems to cause even more trouble.
“I was being bullied in a room and I had no friends,” she says, reflecting on a brutal game night in which she got into an argument with Kim and Kyle Richards. But it’s Taylor Armstrong who seems to have the most issues with her behavior, calling out Glanville for threatening the other ladies.
Richards’s dramatic sit-down will air last, and she will be joined by Dana Wilkey, another “friend” of the Housewives, to discuss the now-infamous game night in more detail. That will be followed by a “lost footage” special, airing Feb. 16, which promises to feature more footage from the fight between Brandi and Kyle at the tense Malibu beach party.
