Okay, I am going to need to break this latest TMZ article about Kim Richards down. TMZ has the best sources on the Internet. But no sources are infallible, and in this case there are factually incorrect statements and some crazy opinions. That tends to happen when Brandi Glanville is your source. So please allow me to get out my purple pen. All the quoted material comes form TMZ.
“Kim Richards just broke from stress when she was arrested early Thursday at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel. Sources very close to Kim as well as sources connected with “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” tell TMZ, she was unable to cope with some pretty terrible things going on in her life”
Kim was not sober when she was on RHOBH this season. Her lack of sobriety, sober coach, recovery program, and denial she was struggling with her sobriety was her entire storyline. There was no “break” at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Sources very close to Kim and RHOBH would be Brandi. This is become even more evident later. Brandi is once again excusing Kim’s behavior.
. — Her ex-husband Monty, who still lives with her, is dying of stage 4 cancer
This is not true. Monty does not live with Kim. Kingsley lives with Kim. Monty lives nearby with a palliative care team and his current “significant other/girlfriend/whatever she is.”
[Medical information on family member snipped.] Just two weeks ago, Kim was in Cabo without a care in the world about Monty or her family members in the hospital. Kim was hanging out with Brooke and Brooke’s new mother-in-law planning another wedding. Brandi loves to say that Kim is driving everyone back and forth to the hospital but that is just a lie. It’s a lie that Brandi tells.
. — She’s under financial stress. Contrary to reports, she’s getting no money for child support.
Um, duh. All of her children are adults. She makes plenty of money to support herself on RHOBH. She is not under financial stress. Brandi may be under financial stress but Kim is not.
— Kim is trying to plan her daughter Brooke’s official wedding.
No she is not. Brooke is planning the wedding with her mother-in-law. Brooke’s mother-in -law is also paying for the wedding. Kim is not capable of planning a wedding and is only included in a nominal way.
But the real trigger … we’re told earlier in the evening, Kim went to Brooke’s house, where they watched the 3-part reunion. Kim had put it off because it was too upsetting, but she had to binge watch in order to fulfill her obligation to blog about the shows.
This is total bullshit. Kim hasn’t “fulfilled her obligations to blog” since 1972. Kim gets special treatment in that regard due to her addiction issues. And she always has.
And reliving what went down crushed her. We’re told Kim has been deeply upset over Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna.
Kim hasn’t had a problem with Lisa Vanderpump all season. That would be Brandi. Brandi has an issue with Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna.
Kim believes Vanderpump had intentionally driven a wedge between her and sister Kyle. On the show, Vanderpump urged them to reconcile, but Kim claims off camera Vanderpump told Kyle that Kim didn’t want her at Brooke’s wedding … which infuriated Kyle and deeply hurt Kim.
Oh so now “Kim” is claiming something? This is more Brandi. Brandi is trying to clear her conscience for destroying the relationship between Kim and Kyle. Now that Brandi gets why it was so important not to do that, she has to shift the blame for the fractures in that relationship on someone. So why not Lisa Vanderpump, her arch enemy, and Lisa Rinna the person who did the most to try and get Kim some help. So transparent Brandi.
Our sources say the cumulative stress was too much for Kim to bear. We’re told she left Brooke’s house and ended up alone at the Polo Lounge at the Bev Hills Hotel.
Brandi points out she was alone and not with Kim! Kim doesn’t seem like the type to go to a bar alone… but if Brandi was there that will come out eventually.
It’s unclear what if anything she drank there, but Kim has told friends
We are really supposed to believe that Kim has told friends anything? She has two friends according to her, Brandi and Kingsley and only one of those friends knows how to call TMZ.
a group of people at a table invited her to sit at around 1:30 AM, but the maitre d’ wasn’t having it and ordered Kim out.
So this friend says that Kim was thrown out because the Maitre D didn’t want Kim joining another table? Sounds more like she was cut off and given her bill and then tried to join another group of people.
As we reported, the hotel people say Kim got belligerent, wouldn’t leave the restaurant, ended up in the bathroom where cops dragged her out. She was booked for public drunkenness, resisting arrest, trespass and battery on a cop.
Yes. Those sources were the credible ones. Brandi Glanville is not. So for those of you saying that Kim is already blaming others. I think you should consider the source of this story. Kim is likely in quite a mess and not speaking to anyone. Even Brandi.
