'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Kim Richards Is An Alcoholic; In Other Breaking News, The World Is Round
Marlin fisher, Arabian horse, and Virgo reality star (when she can find the time), Kim Richards revealed that her dependence on alcohol is what prompted her four month-long rehab stint. Actually, this is mildly shocking. My money was on at least a pill/alcohol combo platter, or maybe just a lethal, but slightly obscure painkiller like fentanyl pops. Just booze, though? What do you think?
In the first part of a three-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion, Kim Richards sat down with Andy Cohen and dropped this bomb for the first time on network television since her departure from rehab, despite having denied it in the past. All kidding aside, we love Kim and wish her the best. The preview looks decent, no? Taylor is just as slippery and detestable as ever. I'd also like to issue a premature best supporting Emmy to Brandi for providing the same level of levity and color that your drunk, narcoleptic uncle brings to Christmas, seconds before sloping over into the chicken wing dip.
As for the drama, I'll give it a 6 on a 10 scale. Does it really have to be three parts though? That feels more like lazy producing/editing than the promise that there was too much drama to be contained by one or two episodes. What say you, discerning public?
