I completely believe that Kim Richard’s legal team managed to get this delayed until Kim could show some sort of progress on her probation conditions. She was in court around the time this was supposed to come out. Let’s see if they completely edit her out. I am not going to do a full recap because I’ve already forgotten these people’s names.
It’s the first therapy session and Kim appears to be stoned out of her fucking mind. When I pause on her eyes are either closed or circled with black eyeliner like a raccoon.
Dr Debbie gives everyone a partying gift. She gave Kim a tiny suitcase and said “You are strong enough to carry your own baggage.” Kim is slurring her words and laughing inappropriately. Kimberly is sitting next to her trying to pretend that everything is normal. The weird part is that they filmed a double confessional at some point after this and she seems totally normal. When did they film that? Kimberly was given a hall pass to not do every little thing for her mother.
After everyone opens their gifts, we cut to Kimberly who is stroking the back of Kim’s head as she nods all over the place. Why isn’t Kim just saying her mother is sick or something and locking her in her room? This is insanity! Kim literally cannot sit up. Oh wait, she does tell her to go lay down. Kim tries to stand up and can’t. She can barely walk and it’s certainly not in a straight line. Kimberly finally gets up to walk with her as we see Kim trying and not succeeding in walking down some stairs.
Kim refuses to go to the hospital or they don’t think she needs to go. That part was kind of unclear. They basically tell her she needs to eat something. Which is what they say to drunk people.
Kimberly makes several kinds of food for Kim and brings it to her and hovers around. Natalie and Heidi make fun of the situation and talk about how Kim always wants Kimberly right there to take care of every little thing.
I am annoyed at how many times they talk about eight weeks of therapy. They were there for two weeks.
At the end, each pair apologized for to the other for something. Kim apologizes to Kimberly for being too protective of her and for always doing things she can do for herself. Um, that’s delusional. Kimberly is the one spoon feeding you all the time, Kim! Kimberly apologizes for making Kim feel weak, and making her feel not strong enough and for not giving Kim enough credit. Kimberly really needs to be in some real therapy. Or if not, a lot of Al-NON meetings.
There was never any mention of why Kim needed paramedics and an ambulance. I fully expected her to say she mixed up her medication or something. But nothing. I will head to Twitter to see if I can find Natalie or Heidi tweeting.
