The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Kim Richards Out

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Kim Richards Out

The Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls - Season 3

Well, it appears The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills leaks have sprung after our exclusive about Kim Richards being found passed out half-naked in a hotel hallway yesterday.

Radar Online is also reporting that Kim may be getting the axe!  Personally I believe Kim leaving the show would be the best thing for her sobriety, a sobriety that viewers are starting to question, our The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills source maintains that the sobriety storyline is quite true.

Radar is reporting that the executive team at Bravo is planning to fire Kim at the end of the season and that sister Kyle Richards is threatening to quit the show if that happens. Buh Bye ladies!!! It is no secret that the season four première were down attracting 1,592,000 viewers, according to Bravoratings.com — well down from season three which topped out at 2,350,000 viewers The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Wiki

The reason behind Kyle’s loyalty (ok I just laughed at the thought of Kyle being loyal to anyone but herself), is that she doesn’t want to financially support Kim again, claiming that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is Kim’s only source of income.  Umm, what happened to all the money she made as a child star? I guess her claim to fame Witch Mountain didn’t pay all that well!

There are a ton of rumors floating around the inter-webs that Bravo’s powerhouse franchises The Real Housewives of New Jersey and The Real Housewives of Atlanta will be the only two iterations of the housewives franchise to survive cancelation in 2014. If the series does survive, my bet is that producers will look for new women who bring the drama and can sustain this years drama of Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud.  Hey, drama manufactured or not is what makes us all tune in!

Based on fan reactions on Twitter, I seriously doubt anyone will be sad to that Kim Richards and possibly Kyle Richard are out of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

    AHA!!! So, I was spot on in the recap regarding her sobriety/medicated messed up self–although I am truly sorry to be right on this one.

    I adored Kim R. when I was a little girl–loved Witch Mountain. I think her story is tragic and I really blame Kyle for pushing her unstable sister into doing this show.

    Anyone with 1 brain cell knows how this show would make anyone new to sobriety relapse.

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      I agree with you Heels, I said in the comments yesterday that the best thing for Kim to do for her sobriety is to leave the show and distance herself from Kyle.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        ITA. And while it is terribly tragic that this happened–good for you for the exclusive. That was quite a feat my friend! :) Nicely done story too.

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          That was all the Doctor, Doc Seuss that is

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Ah, thanks for the clarification. Doc is amazing.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      4th, don’t blame her sister. Kim is a grown woman who makes choices for herself. She has been a substance abuser a long time and her sister (enabler) just did what enablers do. She probably was NEVER sober and show or no show Kim made her own choices and will continue to do so until SHE wants sobriety. It’s a very circular, pernicious disease.

      • Birdie11

        She and Kyle clearly don’t know how to relate in a healthy way. If Kyle wants Kim to get sober, she needs to seek help and get a grip on what an enabler is and how to stop. It would probably be a whole new world for her.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Absolutely it would! Detachment from the abuser is the key. They can find help out there.BUT, they have to do it.Many times they just don’t want to associate with the people who can help them, if you know what I mean. It takes a lot of work and a lot of time!

          • Birdie11

            It’s probably such a lengthy life pattern, the change would be pretty scary. It seems at this point the whole family better get serious about it….the consequences of not doing so could be far worse.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Kyle, I think LIKES to see her sister struggle. It makes her feel loftier. I really cannot stand Vyle.

          • Birdie11

            I can tell Heels! I don’t believe that. I think it’s just a messy dysfunctional family of a longtime addict. The whole family needs help.

            • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

              That’s true enough–but I still think Kyle does things to belittle her sister–and Kathy seems to do the same. I think these girls were all raised to be very competitive with each other. And I do think Kyle has always been jelly of her sister’s childhood stardom.

              This is really sad. I’ve had family members who were addicts. It sucks. But I was not an enabler like Kyle is! And my brother is now clean for over 10 years!!

              • Birdie11

                That is wonderful! I’m sure a non-enabling family was a real blessing through his struggle. I think you’re right about the competitive nature of the girls upbringing. I wonder what Kathy’s deal is…I think she and Kim are closer than Kim and Kyle.

                • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                  I also get that feeling (regarding Kathy and Kim). And yes, it was hard to not enable my brother–and to be honest, I did until he went to rehab and then relapsed the 1st time. Then I gave him no more money, although I allowed him to stay with me for a year, rent-free while he saved money AFTER he was clean and sober for 6 months. I love my bro–hated his addiction. He even stole from me. :( But it was the drugs, not him–and he’s paid me back for everything.

                  • Birdie11

                    I have a nephew who was a drug addict and actually stole money from my daughter’s purse when we were staying with them years ago. We had to hide our money for a long time after that. I couldn’t believe it, and saw how low they actually go. Ugh, it was terrible.

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      Birdie, I’m so sorry that happened but not surprised. Addicts become like different people. It’s horrible!

                  • noarguingwithstupid

                    Then you know this disease intimately!!! I am so glad he is clean and sober now. I know you must be thrilled. There is no greater high than to see an addicted person clean and sober.

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      You are so right, NAWS. And my brother’s sobriety/cleanness is made even better because I lost one of my sister to drugs and alcohol. In fact, her death was part of the catalyst that caused my bro to change. It broke all our hearts but at least I have my brother and didn’t lose 2 siblings. :(

                    • Birdie11

                      Oh Heels…so sorry…((hugs))…that makes your brother’s sobriety all the more precious!

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      Thanks so much, Birdie. It was over 10 years ago but I still think of her every day. And yes, my brother’s sobriety is so much more precious (to him too!). He’s doing GREAT now! So, at least there was one happy ending. With addiction, there often isn’t any happy endings. I’m so glad that I didn’t inherit their alcoholic tendencies. I have 1 – 2 drinks a couple of times a month (or longer). I hate being out of control though.

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      Me, too!!!! I don’t drink at all because of all the family history. BUT my first husband was an alcoholic! I must just love that personality!!!!

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      LOL–I would rather have a wonderful piece of chocolate cake if I want all those calories (or a maple/bacon doughnut which I am addicted to!). You’ve learned NAWS–or you would STILL be married to an alcy!

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      You betcha!!!! :)

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      LOL!!! I can see I am amongst kindred spirits!!!

                    • Birdie11

                      Yes please…to the cake AND the doughnut!

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      On my Dad’s side of the family (Irish) all of the children and grandchildren died of alcoholism before the age of 50. My childhood memories of aunts and uncles were all of funerals!!

                    • Birdie11

                      How awful! NAWS! I hate alcoholism so much.

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      It is a nasty disease that effects the entire family!!!!!!!

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      Ah, so NAWS–you also know what it’s like. I’m so sorry to hear that! ((((((((hugs back))))))).

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      The luck of the Irish!! (((Hugs to you!)))!!

                • Jennymckitty

                  I get the feeling that Kyle is jealous of Kim and Kathy’s relationship. Kyle seems like odd man out.

        • https://twitter.com/ResearcherX/favorites RX

          i agree! kyle wants kim not to be sober imo. kyle has no clue how to function w/o kim being drunk.

          didnt kim’s daughter try to commit suicide a few months ago?

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I agree that it is Kim’s responsibility to stay sober–but Kyle could have and SHOULD have told her sister to not do the show–that it was too early in her sobriety. In Kyle’s selfish (always) ways, she doesn’t want to support Kim financially–even though they all lived off of Kim R’s nickel when she was the child star. Can’t stand Vyle Bitchards–and I’m glad to see her going (if that’s true but the narcissist will never go unless they cancel).

        And she can take her drug addicted sister with her. I hate people who lie about being sober. Just admit it–you are using! All of us with a brain cell knew it anyway, right NAWS? We both called it long ago.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          You are so right!!! But Vyle is the enabler and the controller!! (She thinks she is controlling, but in reality, she can control nothing!) They both need to go to rehab and get off this show! Kim has been abusing a LONG time and is just living a lie. Being a drunk and getting help is just not a very “Beverly Hills” thing to do!!! And Vyle really needs to get either professional help with her enabling or go to Al-Anon to learn how to live and love an alcoholic, although I doubt that she has the time!!!!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Cosign everything–and THIS is why I love you NAWS! You so clearly see it and call it as it is! :)

            • noarguingwithstupid

              I love you, too, 4th!!!!!(((((HUGS))))))))))

              • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                Aw shucks! (Kicks sand and blushes). Thanks!!!

          • twifan2

            You really think Kyle will even consider that she is an enabler?
            I don’t think so. :(

            • Dr Seuss

              She won’t admit it but she totally is!

        • murlut

          Kim was drinking during the first whole year of the show, possibly even into season 2. I really think that Kathy and Kyle have subsidized Kim for years and have provided her an income over and above anything she could have ever made as a child star. I think this show forced Kim into rehab due to the publicity and that’s what made her stay sober. I have to credit the show for keeping her sober. Sure its tough on her but this show isn’t that stressful

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            But the show didn’t keep her sober. I don’t think she has EVER been sober since she has been on the show. Season 1 she was a hot mess, Season 2–that icky boyfriend and Hawaii? Remember? And then last season, Paris-gate. She’s been using the whole time, imo!

            • Birdie11

              The only time I think she was on air genuinely sober was during that interview with Princess Andy…I think it was part of the reunion? She sounded different then.

              • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                I have no doubt that she has been sober at times. My brother (and sister for that matter) both had times where they were sober/not using. So, yes, Kim could pull it off–but what’s bad is that she’s in denial and fooling even herself. You have to realize you have a problem to address it. And Kim is so deep in denial! I think a lot of fans will be very disappointed. I had people attack me because I said she was using still…..but I unfortunately know what addiction looks like and she had it written all over her.

                • Birdie11

                  I think she was fresh out of rehab then. People just want a happy ending, I guess.

                  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                    That is so true–the happy ending. But nothing is more harmful to an addict than denial. And Kim is swimming in that particular river.

              • noarguingwithstupid

                Well alcoholics can function and keep it a secret a long time! Its not that unusual. In fact, its called a fully functioning alcoholic!!! They go to work every day and usually do a great job! It just doesn’t last forever!!!

                • Birdie11

                  Oh yes…I’ve known a few of those. I just haven’t seen Kim pull it together like she did that one time…but I’m sure she does it from time to time.

            • noarguingwithstupid

              The whole time is correct!!!! Paris just got away from her. She’s never been sober on the show. Period.

              • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                Of course you are right. She could probably manage a few sober hours a day but every night, she’s taking her combo pack of pills and booze. One of these days, it’s going to kill her. Her family is such a bunch of enablers. They ALL need treatment.

                • noarguingwithstupid

                  Yep! But I doubt they have the time. :(

                  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                    If this pig of a show is canceled they’ll have time. Cuz Kyle by Aleen 2 is going nowheresville without the show to prop it up with its outrageous prices and f’ugly clothes (I have been there!). And what does Kathy Hilton have to do? Go get a mani-pedi. Oh, snap! Of course that’s more important than her sister’s FUCKING LIFE! (/sarcasm).

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      What is the store like? What are the clothes like and the prices? I’m dying to know!!!!

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      The best part is the candy area! They have a real life candy area in the back of the shop so they can keep their customers hopped up on sugar and caffeine (chocolate has caffeine in it–you likely know that but not everyone does).

                      It’s a HUGE store–much bigger than many shops in Bev Hills. They have a good selection (of ridiculously priced) vintage clothing but their prices are so high that I wouldn’t even consider it. You can get much better vintage in NYC stores on the LES and for a fraction of the cost.

                      The new clothes are up and down–both in price and quality. She has some cheap clothes in her store that average people could afford but they are butt ugly. The designer stuff she has is ridiculously expensive. Overall, in a scale of 1 – 10, I give it a generous 4. It’s really not all that. I went in hoping to get a glimpse of Kyle in person. The sales person was aggressive and told me something looked good on me that looked absolutely horrid. Like I don’t know! There was also hardly anyone in the store when I was there. And I should mention that this was a while ago so it might have changed–I was there last July. Hubs was in BH for a visit and I went looking for HW haunts. Went to both Villa Blanca and Sur. They were “good” but not as good as the price would suggest. I didn’t see Lisa–and at Sur, I saw virtually NONE of the staff that is on TV. Something is fishy there! (sorry for the long book I wrote!).

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      Thank you!!!! It’s so nice for a viewer to actually see what things are like! Funny that you saw no staff at Sur that are on t.v.????Makes a person wonder??The candy store part sounds neat in Kyle’s! Sorry you didn’t see Lisa or Kyle. I guess things are going o.k. for her to have such a large store!!! It looks like Kyle and Kim may not be back next season, so she has lots of time to work in the store!!!! I figured it was pretty big when she had the fashion show there. Thank you for sharing. Fun!!!!! :)

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      You are so welcome! We travel so much and my hubs is often busy with biz meetings so I wander off on my own doing things that he could not care less about (he still can’t believe I like watching Bravo!! but he’s an understanding man and that’s what unconditional love is for!). I have met Bethenny at a party and also Carole Radziwill (who is a close friend with one of my BFF’s in NYC–he knows everyone). He took me to one of her parties! She was actually awesome. No other HW’s were there!~very telling! And this was after they filmed the 1st season so she knew the other women. I liked her! It made me want to watch another NY season anyway and I thought I was done with that!

                      And yes, the candy was awesome at Kyle’s store but I can’t help but think she has it so other women will get fat!!!

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      I never thought of that, but I think you are right!!!! Then they could all wear Kaftans!!!!!

                      Very interesting. Thank you for that info! :)
                      I heard that Kyle was launching a clothing line next month on HSN.
                      This I have got to see! :D

                      By the truck load I’d think.
                      I actually need to get a new tent for camping this summer. I’ll have to see what her selection will be like. :)

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      LOL!!! While her kaftans are horrid for actually wearing, they night make a good fashion statement as a tent! They couldn’t look worse in a campground than they do on a person. You would think with her money, she could afford a decent stylist!

                    • twifan2

                      I wonder just how flame retardent those things are? :/
                      WTH is that THING she’s wearing around her neck(& it’s NOT Kim) when she does her TH segments?! o.0

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      Do you mean that HUGE crystal? That thin is the most ridiculously ugly necklace I have seen. Kyle’s lack of style continues to amaze though! How you can have THAT much money and dress so horribly is beyond me! :)

                    • twifan2

                      It’s crystal?! Really? UGLY!
                      When she sees herself on tv, I wonder if she actually thinks she looks good?!
                      Maybe she actually doesn’t have that much money? :/

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      Oh Lord, Twi–not real crystal but glass shaped like a big huge something–I don’t even know what to call it. It looks like the things that hung from my grandma’s drapes when you wanted to open and shut them (hers had a rope on one side that you pulled and the shades would move to open them). Is it the UGLY huge glass like thing you are talking about? I seriously doubt it is real crystal. It’s just one more piece of junk she sells at her store.

                    • twifan2

                      I was thinking like it was made of plastic, not even glass. The weight of that thing!
                      AND that ‘chain’ it hangs from…REALLY!?

                    • Birdie11

                      It reminds me of something that hangs from a gargantuan chandelier…or a paperweight.

                      I’m amazed she doesn’t have a bad cervical vertebrae from those humongous necklaces!!!!!!! She would look good in a cervical collar, though!!!!

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      That cervical collar is probably coming soon because that necklace is going to cause a disc to pop! It looks really heavy! Blech.

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      She thinks she is a fashionista–don’t need no crummy stylist!!!

                    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                      Someone needs to clue her in that she looks like she’s wearing tents. She has a complex that she thinks she’s fat (which can happen in a place like BH where most women are size 00). Kyle is many things but fat isn’t one of them and if she dressed in more fitting outfits she would look smaller. Those tents do her no favors!

                      If her own style is any indication–we are BOTH right! :)

                      Yes, Kim was quick to announce to all that Kathy was going to Buckingham Palace when she had the graduation party for her daughter. Pleeeeeeeease!!!!

              She didn’t go to rehab till the middle of season 2. The blow up with Kyle was the end of season 1. The boyfriend in Hawaii was beginning of 2. I don’t think she is drinking. She is a ditzy blonde, I still don’t think she is drinking. I am not saying she hasn’t slipped up, most alcoholics do but you can see in her face that she is much healthier.

              • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                Yeah, let’s just ignore the fact that they found her passed out drunk in a hotel, naked from the waist down during this last season of filming. Of course there are periods of sobriety but when you are that type of (genetic) alcoholic, the bad times take over–she isn’t able to control herself. The very definition of an alcoholic is “is your life manageable.” What have we seen from Kim that would make any of us believe her life is manageable?

                Nothing if you are honest–and I ask that you do that because enabling never helps. Kim R is a tragedy waiting to happen and ask long as her family and fans allow her to try to perpetuate the belief that she is sober, the worse it will be for her.

                If you were honest with yourself about her problem, you would recognize how bad it’s going for her.

                Just puffier from the booze!!!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          A long time ago!!! i don’t think she was ever sober. I fee for her kids. If she thinks they won’t have problems because of her substance abuse, she needs to do some research!!!! All of her kids have been effected by it. Just another part of this hideous situation!!!!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh, I so feel for those kids. There is little that is harder on children than their parents’ substance abuse. Kim is so selfish to continue to let her family down. In fact, I think selfishness is in their DNA.

            • noarguingwithstupid

              I always felt that way about my Dad when he was alive.

              • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

                ((((((hugs))))). It’s always so hard on the kids.

          Who says Kyle didn’t talk to her? Kim has always struck me as being incredibly irrational and stubborn. I don’t understand why Kyle is being held responsible for Kim’s life and her bad decisions. Kim has two ex-husbands that reportedly pay her really well, why should she be Kyle’s financial responsibility any longer?

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Oh and loved pernicious! Shades of Camille! :)

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Oh Shucks, thank you 4th!!! (Kicking the dirt and looking embarrassed!!)

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Mwah! <3 It was just such a great and appropriate word to use. I always love when people are quick enough to insert those!

      Hi Heels! I agree. Ray Charles could told of this one. Sad but true.

  • murlut

    Kim Richards basically adds nothing to the storyline. Her whole life was based around her being a child actress. Then she became a mother. She genuinely, seems to be a good mom. Her children then became older and less dependent on her she seemed to depend on the alcohol. I am sure having the boyfriend shot when she was on the phone with him was of no help. Kim needs to have a purpose. I still think Kyle and Kathy Hilton pay Kim every month. I am sure Kyle wanted her on the show to get her an income. I really think that Kim thought of this show as a stepping stone to getting back in to acting jobs. I hope she keeps up with the sobriety. In some ways this show almost makes her stay sober because she is always in the public eye.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      What I want to know is why Big Kath didn’t set up a trust fund for her daughter who was the cash cow (Kim). They ALL lived off her for years! Kyle was not really anything like the star her sister was. In fact, I didn’t even know Kyle was a child “star” whereas I knew and loved Kim R. as a child when she did Witch Mountain.

      The problem is that she isn’t keeping up with the sobriety. She’s obviously still using and until she gets honest, nothing is going to change.

        I remember Kim…I remember her face. I watched Little House on the Prairie too, and don’t even vaguely remember Kyle.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Same with me! No one would know Kyle was in anything other than BH if she didn’t talk about it CONSTANTLY!!

  • julyol1972

    Hallelujah, hallelujah….! If this is true, then it’s about time! Maybe now she’ll finally get the help she needs. And if Kyle follows, well c’est la vie!!!!

    Stupid if they get rid of Kim. She adds humor and quirkiness.
    If less people are watching the show, it’s because of
    1.) Carlton – trashy, extremely negative, ugly face, ugly scowl, delusional
    2.) Brandi – trashy who seems to be in the center of most fights on the show
    3.) Some of the original cast members aren’t part of the show anymore and have been replaced by people who don’t fit (except for Yolanda, but she’s so pretentious and fake).
    4.) There used to be more focus of their luxurious lifestyles. Now… not so much.

    They should get rid of Carlton first, then Brandi. I’m tired of seeing of Carlton’s scowl and Brandi’s cheek implants.
