Kim Richards came clean about her ongoing battle with alcoholism Tuesday, telling Dr. Phil McGraw that she was driven to drink because she was upset about being estranged from her family.

And she admitted that the night of her arrest earlier this month wasn't the first time she'd broken her sobriety – despite her denials at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion.

I was ashamed to say anything at the reunion, embarrassed," the reality star said in the interview, which was filmed before she checked into rehab and aired Tuesday.
