This show is just another in a long stream of poor choices that Kim Richards has made. I don’t know how else to explain this train wreck. Let’s review. Kim is an alcoholic who is not currently working a program according to all the signs we have seen. It appears she has not met her probation requirements and will be returning to court soon to give a judge an update on her progress. At this time Monty was still alive but near death. She was estranged from various siblings and her children on and off. And so she decides to do a bottom of the barrel reality show with her daughter Kimberly who appears to be extremely codependent towards her mother.
On tonight’s episode they do that ridiculous stunt only actually carried out on reality TV therapy. Someone is dead. Life is too short. Yes, the dreaded tombstone therapy. In this case it’s Kim’s tombstone. These TV idiots who are in no way qualified to deal with all of the triggers they are going to push on Kim in order to get a “good TV show.”
This is so unsettling. Andy Cohen would not even stoop this low. And why doesn’t Kimberly just get her mother out of there? In the show summary it says that “Kim turns on Kimberly.” I would think that Kimberly of all people would know this was a really bad idea. This is why Kim needs a sponsor to tell her things like she is not in the right place to do reality TV.
I think I am going to pass on doing a blow by blow recap of this show tonight. I’ll just post comments as I watch. Or try to watch. Because what more can you say, really? There just are no words for this.
