Kim Richards Admits, 'I'm an Alcoholic' on Real Housewives Reunion

Originally posted 01/26/2012 09:00AM



There will be triple the drama when Bravo's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special kicks off on Jan. 30 (9 p.m.) – the first in a three-part series that reunites the ladies for heated discussion with Andy Cohen.

And – surprise – Kim Richards will be joining the fray after all.

Though she didn't participate in the initial filming because she was seeking treatment for alcohol abuse, Richards sat down for a separate chat with Cohen, her first since leaving rehab, which will air as the third installment on Feb. 13 (9 p.m. ET). In the chat, she tells Cohen why she checked into rehab. "I'm an alcoholic," she says. "I'm an alcoholic."

What else can you expect? PEOPLE has an exclusive look at the show (see above clip). But let's break it down further:

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Did a Drama-Free Finale Disappoint?

Originally posted 01/24/2012 10:15AM

Weeks before the first episode aired in September, the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was swathed in domestic drama after the suicide of Russell Armstrong.

This year, the Bravo cameras caught many of the ups and downs in the ladies' lives – tracking the marital problems of Taylor Armstrong and her late husband, the struggles of sisters Kyle and Kim Richards and the stresses as Lisa Vanderpump began planning her daughter's wedding, an event which was captured in Monday night's anticipated finale.

Joyous (and extravagant) as the event was, as the centerpiece of the finale, Pandora's nuptials managed to sideline the more pressing plot lines of the season. Largely missing from the episode were two of the show's biggest drama magnets: Kim and Taylor.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Who Caused the Most Drama at Sur?

Originally posted 01/17/2012 10:20AM

Was the opening of Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant, Sur, the most dramatic party in the history of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?

The newly renovated space was gorgeous, and we can only assume that the food and drinks were delightful. But Lisa's event became a minefield of emotions thanks to three guests, both invited and uninvited.

First the uninvited: Lisa's former houseguest Cedric showed up unannounced, apparently hoping to make up after an off-camera fight last year that turned the best friends into enemies. Lisa was polite but pointed when asking him to leave.

Then, Kim Richards showed up with her boyfriend, Ken. Kyle hadn't seen her sister since their fight in Hawaii, so it was bound to be awkward. But with Kim acting out of sorts, locking herself in the bathroom and telling Kyle she wanted out of her relationship, the sisters' sit-down became a tearful spectacle.

All hell broke loose on Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills during a wine tasting at a fabulous Malibu beach house.

With embattled newbie Brandi Glanville playing hostess, Camille Grammer and Taylor Armstrong came face to face after the tea party, where Camille exposed Taylor's abusive relationship with estranged husband Russell, who committed suicide in August.

Though they tried to avoid each other, as the wine flowed Camille's friend Dedra confronted Taylor for ignoring Camille's apologies and not being a friend. Emotions were high and the confrontation quickly turned into an out-of-control screaming match. (Watch the clip above.)

Taylor Armstrong has been through so much – physical abuse, the suicide of her estranged husband and the public drama of it all on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which played out on Monday's episode in a major way after she got into an intense fight with a friend of her costar Camille Grammer.

Now, she says, she wants to support someone else who is facing personal problems: her friend Kim Richards, who recently entered rehab.

"I adore Kim and I stand behind her," Armstrong told Andy Cohen Monday night on his Bravo talk show, Watch What Happens Live. "And if there's anything I can do to support her [I will]; but if she's getting healthy what more could we ask."

This season, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have rallied around cast member Taylor Armstrong in the wake of her estranged husband Russell's suicide, but things got ugly on Monday's episode when Camille Grammer revealed for the first time on the show that Russell had been physically abusive.

The revelation came after a spat between Taylor and Lisa Vanderpump, who confronted Taylor about not being invited to an awards luncheon the day before.

"I have bent over backwards since the day I met you to be kind to you," a highly-emotional Taylor shouted over tea in Lisa's sitting room. "And you have treated me so poorly that it is embarrassing."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who was "devastated" by her estranged husband Russell's suicide in August, "seemed very happy to start moving on with her life and getting back to work," according to a source at an Oct. 20 commercial shoot at Tru Hollywood nightclub.

Armstrong, along with Atlanta's Kandi Burruss and Orange County's Gretchen Rossi, will be part of a team of Housewives to host Ciroc Vodka-sponsored New Year's Eve parties in Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, New York City and Miami this year. Commercials for the events, which will be open to lucky contest winners, will air on Bravo.
