Seen above next to a melting Jocelyn Wildenstein action figure, Kim Richards of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was charged with all sorts of shit yesterday morning after she went to Mean Drunk Town at the Beverly Hills Hotel and allegedly kicked a cop at the police station. (There are many times when it’s good to be a rich-ish white woman and the moment after you kick a cop is one of those times.) Kim was only given a citation and released back into the wild. Kim hasn’t said anything about her arrest, but a source (aka Kingsley using a pay phone at the dog training place) tells TMZ that watching the RHoBH reunion really messed her up.
The source says that Kim is currently under a large pile of stress. She’s trying to plan her daughter Brooke’s second wedding, her financial situation is bleak, her son was put on a psychiatric hold at UCLA Medical Center after having a naked breakdown in the streets and as anybody who watches RHoBH knows, her ex-husband Monty has stage 4 cancer. The source says that on top of all of that, Kim watched all 3 hours of the reunion and that’s what turned her inside/out.
Kim avoided watching the reunion, because she didn’t want to relive the fuckery, but a contractual obligation is a contractual obligation. Kim had to watch the reunion, because she had to blog about it for Bravo’s site. So she watched all of it at Brooke’s house on Wednesday night and it fucked her all the way up. Kim is pissed off at Lisa Vanderlump and Lisa Rinna and blames them for driving her and her sister Kyle Richards apart. Kim says that Lisa Vanderpump is a two-faced trick who stirred shit up between her and Kyle. Kim thinks that Lisa told Kyle that she wasn’t wanted at Brook’s latest wedding. Watching the reunion brought that all back.
After watching the reunion, Kim left Brooke’s house and if she was on the wagon, she fell right off and rolled on over to the Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel at around 1:30 in the morning. Kim reportedly told friends that when she got to the Polo Lounge, a group of people invited her to their table. Kim tried to sit with them, but the host wasn’t having it and tried to kick her out. That’s when Kim brought the crazy and locked herself in a bathroom. We all know what happened next.
It seems like Kim has been in a bad, shitty place for a long, long time, so I’m not sure if the reunion pushed her over the edge, because I think she was already over the edge. But still, couldn’t Bravo have gotten a ghost writer to write Kim’s blog? They could’ve just written “They’re all beasts! They’re all liars! The end!” and left it at that. Making her watch all 3 hours at once is a cruel and unusual punishment. The reunion episodes aired on Tuesday nights and Tuesday night is one of my “sober” nights. You know, I like to give my liver time to chill out and say its prayers to Hay-Soos before the weekend. But about 10 seconds into the reunion, I found myself sucking off a bottle of wine to deal with all those wax figures screaming at each other.
So the reunion show didn’t only drive Kim to drink, it drove ALL OF US to drink.
