Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has checked into rehab at an undisclosed location, sources are reporting. The former Disney child star was wasted in the first season finale of Real Housewives, during which her sister Kyle Richards called her an alcoholic.
In the second season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim Richards has continued to display rather crazed behavior. Although Richards reportedly entered rehab once before back in mid-2010, she checked herself out only a week later.
During one episode of Real Housewives in October, cast-mate Brandi Glanville accused Kim Richards, who was slurring her speech during a game night, of being high on crystal meth and “wasted out of her f—ing mind.”
Richards said on the show in November that her slurred speech and droopy eyes are actually the result of prescribed medications, including anti-anxiety drug Lexapro, anti-depressant Trazadone and anti-seizure and alcoholism treatment drug Topamax.
Multiple sources have reportedly confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Kim Richards has returned to rehab to curb her drinking problem.Â We’re sure her friends and family will be hoping this time she’ll stay longer than a week.
Bravo has so far not commented on the report that Richards has checked into rehab. Richards’ reps are also keeping silent so far.
