Stephanie Pratt Reveals Descent into Bulimia and Drug Addiction: 'I Didn't Care About Anything. I Could Live or Die'

The Hills showed viewers Stephanie Pratt growing out of her teens and into a young woman. But as her new biography reveals, the six seasons of the glossy show didn't touch on her very real struggles, including addiction to crystal meth and bulimia.
In Made in Reality, Pratt admits to becoming addicted to crystal meth when she was only 16 or 17 and attending Crossroads School for Arts & Science, a private college prep school in Santa Monica, California.
"I was on the extreme level, and addiction developed instantly," Pratt says in the current issue of New! magazine. The former reality star – who writes that she kept her meth kit in a Hello Kitty bag – tells the magazine, "[I smoked] probably four times before school, then at snack ... probably 12 or 13 times a day."

Lisa Vanderpump on Kim Richards Leaving RHOBH: 'Her Sobriety Is More Important Than Any Reality Show'

Though they've clashed in the past, Lisa Vanderpump only wishes Kim Richards well in the wake of her second arrest in five months.
Because of her ongoing struggles with sobriety, Richards is not returning for the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – a decision Vanderpump supports.
"I'm sorry that Kim's not here because of the situation. That's the thing, but I think that her sobriety is more important than any reality show," she told PEOPLE at her luncheon benefiting the American Humane Association and the Hero Dog Awards (Sponsored by Vanderpump Pets) at PUMP in West Hollywood on Thursday. "I think a lot of people recognize that fact, and that's probably why she's not in this season."

It's been a bumpy year for Kim Richards.
The former star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who left rehab in June, was arrested on Sunday for allegedly shoplifting close to $600 from Target, and a source close to Richards says her behavior of late has been increasingly bizarre.
"No one understands what she's doing," says the source, who adds that Richards is still not speaking to sister Kyle. "Her family is so concerned. And they're fed up. She's cut herself off from friends and family who care about her."

Victoria Siegel was in love. She was a free spirit who preferred to go barefoot and rescued "the ugliest dogs," as her mother puts it, from the pound. She struggled in class but graduated high school, and she had big dreams: opening a sushi restaurant, designing T-shirts, pursuing her passions for poetry, music and art. Victoria was also addicted to prescription drugs, and on June 6, she died of an overdose at the age of 18.
