Friend says 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Kim Richards' cry for help is 'serious'

By Gina DiFalco,

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast has seen their fair share of ups and downs, with the constant fighting and very serious domestic violence claims with Taylor Armstrong and her estranged husband Russell Armstrong, and his eventual suicide.

Another cast-mate, Kim Richards, the aunt of Paris Hilton and sister of cast-mate, Kyle Richards, has reportedly checked herself into rehab last week.

A source told People, “Kim has been to rehab more than once before," adding, "but every time is a new time, and everyone just hopes this sticks and that she gets the help she needs. It's serious."

The insider said that Kim entered the treatment center for her addiction to alcohol as well as "other problems.”

As seen on the Bravo reality show, he behavior is “erratic. Everyone was really worried about her.” The source adds that Kim’s family is “relieved” that she’s in rehab, reiterating "she has lots of issues. She needs help."

On this week’s Watch What Happens: Live, Armstrong voiced her support for Kim, telling host Andy Cohen "I adore Kim and I stand behind her. And if there's anything I can do to support her [I will]; but if she's getting healthy what more could we ask."

The Daily Mail reports that Kim is no longer living with her boyfriend Ken, who she was seen on the show moving in with, despite concern from sister Kyle.

On the show, her sister has accused her of being an alcoholic and new cast-mate Brandi Glanville accused her of being high on crystal meth. Adrienne Maloof’s husband, Dr Paul Nassif, told Kim that her apparent slurring of words and unpredictable behavior was due to her taking a combination of prescription drugs.
