Kim Richards is the poster child for liars on this episode of WWHL I’ll warn you it is sad to watch and might make you angry. I am going to blog in honestly and be truthful about what I see. I am not going to disparage her. I am heartbroken for her. I hope you will be reasonably respectful and consider those who may read here. She is someone’s sister, mother, friend. Thanks!
Andy expresses condolences for Monty. Andy asks how she is doing and she said she was a little nervous at first, but the family is all sticking together and supporting each other.
Andy asks how she is doing in her sobriety. She says, “I’m doing great! I’m in recovery! I decided that the last time I shared my recovery with the world, that it became no longer mine. (snipped a nonsensical part) So this time I decided to keep it for myself. And I do share it with my children so that there worries are … that they won’t have any worries, I keep them up to date about what I am doing in my recovery. But for the public I’ve decided that it is really not their business. ”
In my experience with people in AA they talk about it A LOT if they are successful. Meetings are mentioned, dates are mentioned, you never have to ask. It always comes up.
Andy brings up that she said that being on the show helped her at first. He so wants to believe that. Kim says that at first she felt like she had thousands and thousands of “little sponsees” because so many people told her that they were sober because of her. I don’t think anyone is sober because of her, or believed she was sober on the show. The denial and delusions are still very strong. She talks about some AA clause saying it is not for public, radio and television. I believe that is concerning the meetings, no?
Andy plays a clip showing how much Kim Richards has been discussed on RHOBH and asks Kim the thoughts. Kim is laughing and saying that she didn’t see much of the season because she was very busy with Monty because he was very sick. She laughs about Lisa Rinna wanting to wish her happy birthday was ridiculous. LVP called her recently to invite her to dinner. She has met Erika and Kathryn. She just so happened to see only a tiny part of the episode where Rinna called her a vicious dog. How convenient. Raise your hand if you believe she does not watch ever second of RHOBH several times. Kim wishes that she had not been brought up on the show at all.
Which is a good segue to her scene on the show with Kyle. I really hate seeing Kyle so upset. And both sisters have the same weird cry voice. Kim talks about ALL THE THINGS SHE HAS TO FORGIVE KYLE FOR which infuriates me. She is talking about when Kingsley bit Kyle’s child. She has never ever taken any responsibility for that and has only been angry with Kyle that the dog was taken away.
Kim says she won’t talk about the Target shoplifting case because “that’s a legal matter” yet she will talk about the Beverly Hills Hotel arrest which is also a legal matter. Maybe it is because of her upcoming parole review. Which I think is at the end of this month.
Here is how she started the Beverly Hills Hotel drama, ” You know, I drank that night, you know… um , It was , No excuses it was um…and when you’re working a program, which, you know, I wasn’t at that time, you know, I was before, I had, you know, three and a half years coming up on, and I had a son that wasn’t well, he was, you know, had been sick , Monty was battling cancer, and no excuse, but um, I stopped focusing on myself. I stopped taking the time for me and going to meetings because I was taking care of other people and stopped taking care of myself. (That seems like the excuse she is going to give the judge regarding her probation.)
And then the stuff on the show, Lisa Rinna accused me of um using and alcohol and drugs which you know she claimed … I hear now all this stuff about she claims, ‘She lied! She wasn’t sober for three years!’ I was sober for going on three years and a half years but then this pain pill, I said that, I took it. So about a week and a half to two weeks before the hotel I had a glass of wine with a girl friend. All this stuff in the tabloids is coming up, ‘She’s not sober it was everywhere. And I had a glass of wine with my friend. (Was it Brandi “It’s No Fun To Be Sober” Glanville ?) Just a glass of wine. At home. And um, and then, almost two weeks later I had um, I’d been to visit my son, and then, I went to Brooke’s home that night (At this point if you look at Andy, his eyes are red and he is crying because he understands that this story has very little truth to it and Kim just nonchalantly said she had a glass of wine with a very loud unspoken what’s the big deal.) and I stayed at her house and I watched a few of the reunions cause I hadn’t watched any and I had to blog. And I was like “I can’t blog right now” ( I don’t know how to describe her affected voices for some of her statements. It seem almost joking and totally emotionally inappropriate for the topic.) And uh, and I had a drink at her house. And I felt horribly guilty and I thought, ‘I need to go home. I like I can’t be at my daughter’s house like this. This is terrible!’ And I just had the drink so I thought I’d better go so .”
This is very sad to watch. She doesn’t seem drunk, but she doesn’t seem sober either. She is very hyper and her face and emotions don’t in any way match watch she is saying.
At this point she says that the left to go the Beverly which was only a block and a half from the hotel after consuming the one drink that had not hit her yet. Apparently, in that block and a half she realizes that she can’t drink and drive, so she pulls in the hotel. She is being very dramatic in her retelling with random voices and hand gestures and clutching her heart. She pauses the story to let Andy know she had been boycotting the hotel because of a gay issue. The hotel is/was owned by the Sultan of Brunei who had imposed Sharia law in Brunei and under the new law gay people would be stoned to death. There were other nongay people who would be stoned to death as well, but it is important to explain to Andy, a gay man, that she had been boycotting the hotel until she got drunk and needed a place to sleep it off. Because Kim has a lot of excuses and explanations for everything. This reminds me of how guys will account for every second of their time when they are lying about where they have been. There is way too much unnecessary detail her from Lisa Rinna to the Sultan of Brunei.
The Sultan of Brunei boycott is why she didn’t know anyone there, you see. Because she had been boycotting. And it was after the 1 a.m. closing time, and even by Kim’s telling which I just can’t continue to quote if I ever want to get on to recap RHOBH tonight she walked into to a closed bar in a hotel where no one recognized her and played the don’t you know who I am card and sat down in “her booth.” (you really need to see all the “my booth” stuff on video) The guy refused to server her because the bar was closed and threatened to call the police. She thought he was kidding. But the cops showed up and hauled her drunk ass out.
Andy asks if she felt like that was her “rock bottom” again an AA term, the correct answer is yes. Kim says, “You know, honestly, um truthfully, I was almost relieved it happened. I needed a break. I was exhausted mentally and physically, uh, I was tired. I just felt like I couldn’t handle it anymore. At that point there was too much, you know, my therapist was just, just my psychologist was like just go to a meeting. Just come see me. Come seem me everyday and get back to your meetings. I was just like no I need to go do thirty days. I just need to go! Like I needed a break. But they were all like you don’t need to do that. It’s a drink. You just had a drink. You just need to get back to your meetings and I was just like, no I need to go away for 30 days. I need a break.”
She is talking a lot. There are a lot of words coming out of her mouth and none of them are genuine. This is quite upsetting for me to watch. And physically hard to recap because she is just fast talking.
Andy asks Kim about the Season One Uncensored Episode with lots of new footage. He says that Kyle had a viewing party that night that everyone was at. WOW! I wish they would have filmed THAT. That aired just before Thanksgiving last year I believe. It was the best and worst unseen footage episode ever. Andy asks if it was really awkward to watch all of that played back with Kyle there. (By “everyone” I think he means Kim an d Kyle and the families) Kim says it wasn’t awkward. She says she is good today. She’s better now.
Apparently, Kim is still friends with Yolanda. Maybe she hovers over her death bed or her medical exam room to chat? Kim says that she has watch Yolanda suffer for years. She is clearly suffering. And once again she watches someone else bring up other people’s pain. Kim is still really pissy with Lisa Rinna.
They show a scene from tonight’s episode where Rinna thinks that Yolanda chose to film with Brandi and Kim over Yolanda. Kim just laughs and laughs.
Andy brings up Brandi filming with her in a shirt that said, “It’s Not Fun To Be Sober.” Kim says, “Brandi doesn’t like to be sober. thanks okay?” Kim says Brandi doesn’t drink around her. I don’t believe her. She is still a huge defender of Brandi. Despite her whole family, siblings, children hating Brandi. I’m quite sure that is the friend she drank the “glass of wine” with at her house.
Kim filmed a scene with Lisa Rinna where she asks Rinna “why she has it out for her?” Wow.
Next we have a clip of tonight’s episode of The Mother Daughter Experiment which I will recap tomorrow. The clip seemed to affect Kim. She says that it seemed like a fun show to do with her daughter.
Andy says she hasn’t been tweeting about turtles lately. Kim says she took a break from social media.
They play a bunch of Richards family scenes. Andy says here is to many more beautiful memories with your family. Kim hugs him aggressively and pretends to strangle him. That was very odd. And sad. I may have more to say in comments later. So much more to blog tonight. Thanks for being patient and ignoring typos!
