Not to be outdone by sister Kyle Richards announcing her upcoming appearance on Celebrity Apprentice today, Kim Richards has some news of her own! Interesting timing, no?
You know what is a really good idea for someone to do when clinging to their sobriety? Did you guess go on a reality TV therapy with your daughter? Because that is what Kim Richards is doing! Kim filmed for the Lifetime show The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition at the end of last year and the series is set to start airing Tuesday, March first at 10 p.m. on Lifetime.
Kim will be filming with daughter, Kimberly who will join other illustrious actresses like Heidi Montag and her mother, Courtney Stodden and her mom, Natalie Nunn who is apparently from Bad Girls Club, Shar Jackson who is famous for getting impregnated by Kevin Federline, and Josie Canseco (Jose Canseco’s kid) and her mother.
Certainly, with a line-up like that we are looking at some stiff competition for Downton Abbey in the Golden Globes battle for best dramatic series in December. Seriously, who let Kim do this? The Hiltons are mad at Kyle for doing a sitcom about her life growing up in the Richards family, but this is okay?
Watch the trailer below…
In the preview we see the usual fake cry Kim and the angry Kim and it looks like Kim might storm out just like she did the last time she tried TV therapy with Dr. Phil. That dramatic Dr. Phil scene was less than a year ago. Do we really think she has progressed to the point of trying again on a much less civilized program? In all the other relationships on the show, it seems like the daughter is the one with most of the issues. Perhaps only Courtney Stodden’s mother will give Kim any competition in the bad mother role. Also it just occurred to me that they are calling Heidi, Heidi Montag is she no longer married to Spencer Pratt?
My question is how long has it been since her Bravo contract expired? I believe they have to wait out a full year before they can do other reality TV shows unless they get special permission, like Nene Leakes does. Also, this is not a good look for RHOBH, so those of you thinking she might come back next season might be in for a shock. With Brandi and Kim both doing D list reality this year, I’d say their chances of returning back to RHOBH are quite slim.
That said, Andy Cohen loves to capitalize on the personal shortcomings and addictions of housewives. And both Brandi and Kim have that in spades. So you never know. But I can certainly see Lisa Vanderpump putting her foot down about either of them returning after this. And Andy sure loves him some Stinky Pinky and some Lisa Vanderpump.
So I’ll be watching and recapping this new trainwreck! Who is with me?
