I notice something very interesting yesterday. TooFab.com posted not one but two stories on Kim Richards. Why did I find that so interesting? Well it wasn’t the articles themselves as much as it was that she was doing press at all. Kim has been treated differently from the other housewives ever since she appeared on the show. She has rarely been expected to write a blog, her battle with alcoholism has been exploited by both her sister and the production team, and in general Kim has been excluded from any press. She did recently appear on WWHL, but it really didn’t do much to uplift her image. So why would Kim suddenly be out giving interviews with the reunion only days away? I have a theory.
First let’s look at what she said. In one article she said that despite her on camera fight with Brandi during the reunion, she is really still friends with Brandi. In fact, she says she is getting along great now with Kyle, and they are hanging out and attending family functions together. According to Kim, things are back to where they should be. Kim says that the only person she is not still friendly with is Adrienne. Side note: Kyle on the other hand still is friends with Adrienne and continues to attend Adrienne’s “parties.”
“I never really had very much pain at all – and when I saw what I looked like on camera I was like ‘I look so bad’ but I just never had much pain,” she says. “I kept it iced, but the pain never really happened, it never really hurt. I was just very relaxed. I didn’t even have very much bruising.”
Richards added, “He [Dr. Gregorian] would say I might have some pain and bruising the next day and it just never came, almost like a miracle — a blessing from above. I just didn’t have that experience [like everyone else]. He does them every day and said he’s never seen anything like this before. My bandage even fell off because there was no swelling. I just did everything he told me to do prior.”
Kim had such a pain free nose job that her doctor has never seen anything like it. It apparently looked really bad on TV without any pain or bruising or swelling! It was a modern miracle!
Is Kyle sending Kim out on a media tour trying to generate a fan base to keep her relevant to RHOBH? Is Kim the mysterious second person on the chopping block? Contracts for the next season generally come out in the weeks after the reunion is filmed. I’m just saying. Do you think this last ditch effort will work? Will we be seeing Kim on the next season of RHOBH? Do you care either way?
