Kim Richards recently left her 18th rehab stint after only 30 days. Kim has been abusing liquor and pills for almost 30 years, and has always gone back to abusing both. The Daily Mail reported today:
Kim Richards left rehab in May to attend daughter Brooke Brinson’s wedding after checking herself in following her drunken arrest on April 16 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
However, she quickly checked into another rehab facility after falling off the wagon at the nuptials, held in Mexico.
And on Wednesday the 50-year-old star spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the Sharknado 3 premiere about that relapse in her sobriety, and getting back on track.
‘I was stressed and everybody was looking at me…the bride and groom and the mom who just got out of treatment,’ Kim admitted.
‘I was super stressed out’ Kim Richards opened up about her relapse at daughter Brooke Brinson’s wedding, admitting she was stressed and ‘everybody was looking at me’
She continued: ‘I was super stressed out and I looked on the ground and there were two little margaritas and I think I drank one. I am not even sure. That mixture of [treatment center prescribed medication] so that is why I probably drank.’
Following Brooke’s wedding, where Kim saw her sister Kyle for the ‘first time in six to seven months,’ the star opted to sit out of niece Nicky Hilton’s recent nuptials in London to stay in treatment.
‘So that was a little hard,’ Kim said, of seeing her sister, adding that otherwise she had ‘talked to her a couple of times when she’s been in France in London.’
Of the experience, Kim openly admitted: ‘I love sobriety. I’ve always loved sobriety, and relapsing was very hard for me.’
