The Daily Mail has an exclusive on Kim Richards filming with Dr. Phil. All the quotes here are from that article that you can read here. Daily Mail frequently pays for stories. They are often non-factual. The last really egregiously wrong stories were about Bobbi Kristina. This is not really DM’s fault as the Brown family has some folks that love to sell a story whether they have any truthful information or not. All of this is me suggesting we take this with a grain of salt, and a purple pen.
Embattled Kim Richards stormed out of an interview with Dr Phil McGraw after a highly emotional discussion of her alcoholism, Daily Mail Online can exclusively reveal. The hysterical Real Housewife broke down in tears and went into full meltdown as observers revealed she bolted from the room where Dr Phil had offered to help place her in a top treatment program. But Richards apparently snubbed Dr Phil’s offer of help as eyewitnesses in the hallway heard her scream ‘F***’, and other obscenities when she ran out of the room and down the hall.
Three of Richards’ children, Brooke, 29, Chad, 22 and Kimberly, 20, who were there to support their mother, were shell-shocked by their mom’s outburst, struggling to control their emotions as she left the explosive interview. Daughter Whitney, 23, was not at the luxury Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills for the interview.
This all makes sense to me. The omission of a random kid at the filming makes it more believable. This sounds like typical Kim behavior. However, it doesn’t seem to jibe with the other quote about Kim being somewhat accountable. Then again Kim’s thoughts are all over the place.
Chad was overheard talking to his mom pleading with her to go in to rehab. He revealed the star is battling more demons, including taking pills and smoking pot on top of her relapse into drinking.
An eyewitness at the hotel told Daily Mail Online: ‘Kim insisted that any program had to fit her needs, saying she wouldn’t go out of state, wanted to do a 30-day not 60-day program, didn’t want to miss her daughter Brooke’s wedding in May and was worried about being away from Monty.’
Tears streaming down her face, a determined Richards ran down the hall leaving onlookers stunned. She fled toward her own hotel suite where an entourage of friends was waiting. Elder sister Kathy Hilton was also there.
The article does not mention Kyle at all in relation to the filming. There is a picture at the DM article that shows someone who could be Kyle; however, this person seems taller and longer legged. I think Kyle was probably not there. The is also some iPhone view shot by someone with the IQ of a glass frog.
She was overheard angrily ranting: ‘You can forget this whole thing, here’s your microphone I’m done, I’m leaving, I wanna talk to my family. The observer said: ‘She was really angry and made it clear she was done.’
Richards’ daughter Brooke ran after her mom after she exited and they were heard arguing. Richards told her daughter: ‘I’m not going down there, I’m not going for three months and I’m not going to miss your wedding.’But Brooke asked her mom to please work the program. She was overheard to say it’s on the beach, it’s local and she would be able to go to Brooke’s wedding.
‘What’s the big deal?, ‘ Brooke yelled. ‘Why do you have to be so f***ing picky, just go get the help you need. You have to do this mom.’ But Richards insisted she’s happy to see her own doctor and therapist. She hit back telling Brooke was making her anxious. ‘I’m not going back in there, I’m done.’ She said she whatever she did would be with her family.
Basically this is nothing that all of would have included if instructed to write an article about what we think went down at the filming. There I nothing earth shattering here. It’s as if they just really needed to write something to go with the photos.
‘I’m not drinking every day,’ she was overheard to shout. Brooke was followed to the hotel suite by her siblings Kimberley and Chad. ‘The children urged their mom to return to the interview, but she wouldn’t budge,’ said the eyewitness. ‘Kim was furious. She had a complete melt down’
This outburst was followed by Chad unwittingly revealing further demons his mom is battling. He told his mom that while she he wasn’t saying she was drinking every day she was still drinking once in a while – and taking pills and smoking pot.
After things calmed down Dr Phil stopped by Richards’ room. Richards, who seemed a lot calmer, rambled: ‘I do respect you and admire you… I do trust you, I don’t know you, but I know you, so I can trust you and my kids trust you.’ She said she needed to speak with her life-coach and doctor before making a decision on her treatment and added that she needed to think about it.
Dr Phil told her he was sorry if it doesn’t work out. ‘I think you guys (her children) agree right?’ He was overheard to say.
‘I want to do it, I just need to be in a safe place and need to know where I’m going,’ she was overheard saying. Urging her not to make any more excuses, ‘I think you’ve covered them all,’ he added: ‘Don’t cheat yourself, don’t cheat your kids, just remember I told you that.’
All of this is suspect. This stuff allegedly took place in Kim’s suite in the hotel. Although there were a lot of people in her entourage, they were assistants and such. So did one of the assistants sell the story or is this a complete fabrication that someone sold them?
I’m sorry, there is something fishy about this story. And it really doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know or expect.
