BEVERLY HILLS (LALATE) – Kim Richards rehab has been completed in time for the RHOBH Season 2 Reunion episode taping. Kim Richards is out of rehab today. Questions had remained whether Richards would be able to complete rehab in time for the January 2012 taping of the RHOBH Season 2 Reunion episode. Now, Richards is expected to make that taping.
Kim Richards’ life this season has been a mess of cancellations, tardiness, a peculiar boyfriend, and allegations of alcoholism. Kim Richards has never officially confirmed to news why she entered rehab this time. But multiple news reports this fall claimed that Richards was treated for alcoholism. Moreover, news reports claimed that Richards had been in rehab previously.
On RHOBH this season, Richards has, however, been open about her medication and her medical troubles. Recently Kyle asked her on the show “You look very thin by the way. Kim, are you not eating” Kyle stated. “Not a lot” responded Kim. Kyle added “I don’t see Ken as being a positive influence on my sister.”
In a previous episode, Kim revealed “I’m having horrible panic attacks. I haven’t eaten, I haven’t slept in seven days … I went to doctor today. I’m losing my balance… I can’t hear.”
Before her entry to rehab, Kim said she wasn’t able to get her medications lined up well. “I told the others that night, that I had just left my doctors for treatment of my anxiety and panic disorder. I have suffered from this for many years” she wrote.
She added “I found myself groggy, as this was a medication I had never taken before. That is why I was carrying my coffee with me. I should have gone home to lie down. Instead I went to shoot RHOBH. My doctors have been trying to determine which medication is right for me.”
Reports claimed Richards was being treated at the Betty Ford Clinic. Richards has reportedly split from her boyfriend Ken and has yet to purchase a new home.
