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."

Surprise: The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion gets heated.

Specifically, Kandi Burruss and NeNe Leakes get into it over some alleged trash-talking on the part of Burruss, who turned the charge around on Leakes. "You were showing us signs that you would blast a person with information that you know about them if y'all are no longer friends," said Burruss.

Leakes countered, "If you don't like me, just say it to the world."

Burruss, however, insisted that it's not that she doesn't like Leakes – she doesn't like her "superior" attitude, "but when you're fun and you're laughing and you're having a good time, I love that."
