So you have gone off the rails, broken your sobriety and gotten yourself arrested on four charges. What should you do? Call a sponsor? Get a 24/7 sober coach for a while? Go to rehab?
Not if you are Kim Richards. First, you call Kathy Hilton and have her get with her friends at the Beverly Hills police department and stop the mug shot from being released, allegedly. Then, you pull yourself together and film an episode of Dr. Phil.
The only part of the transcript floating around is one where Kim takes responsibility for her actions.
“I was angry and frightened and I was scared. I knew what I had done. The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink.” ~Kim Richards to Dr. Phil
The episode will air next Tuesday April 28th
People magazine is quoting a source that says Kim is refusing to go to rehab at this time. My guess is she doesn’t want to miss the wedding or be unavailable should something happen to Monty. I can understand that. But I hope she is doing something and will go back after the wedding.
And she needs to stay far, far away from Brandi. Monty might even be a bigger trigger than Brandi because of the deep emotions surrounding his condition coupled with all the pain meds lying about.
So what to we think of this whole Dr. Phil thing? Sympathy ploy? PR move? An attempt to save her job?
I imagine she may have pissed off Bravo by taking her story to another network. I’m sure Andy would have LOVED to do a one on one. I don’t know if they have to clear all interviews with Bravo, but I don’t think they do. I know that they cannot do another reality show on another network for a year from their last episode on Bravo.
This is all very bizarre and it doesn’t look like Kim is making the best choices for herself
