Kim Richards: I Was 'Ashamed' to Admit I Was Drinking Again at RHOBH Reunion

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 did have drinks a couple other times over the past few months. It was wine. 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. "I would have loved to say to the girls, 'You know what, you're right,' but the way they were coming at me, they didn't make it easy."

"I pulled in [to the Beverly Hills Hotel] because I'm comfortable there, I've been going there since I'm a little girl," she says in the clip. "The bar was closed. It was empty."
