This weekend, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, Kim Richards left her luxurious Sober House facility in Malibu to attend daughter, Brooke Brinson’s second wedding.
If you recall, Brooke previously wed her groom in a quaint but elegant ceremony last summer so that her dad could walk her down the aisle. Legally, Brooke and her groom, Thayer Wiederhorn have been married since last August. Fun fact — the groom is heir to the Fatburger empire.
Also in attendance were…Kyle Richards, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, and Faye Resnick for the ceremony that occurred on Saturday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on the beach. Kyle Richards youngest daughter, Portia Umansky, made an adorable flower girl and her older sisters were bridesmaids in the wedding ceremony.
The mother of the bride sought treatment for alcohol and drug addiction last month after her drunken rampage at the Beverly Hills Polo Club and subsequent arrest. Kim has only been at the Sober House facility in Malibu for close to one month. Some might say, she’s no position to be around triggers like alcohol and the environment places her at high risk for relapse.
Paris Hilton posted the following video of the RHOBH star cheering and smiling with family and friends as they prepared for the special nuptials. “Brooke’s wedding! The day is here. Yes! Mexico!”

Cake time! Mr. and Mrs. Wiederhorn ceremoniously cut the elegant decorative wedding cake.
Brooke’s father, Monty Brinson, was not able to attend his daughter’s second wedding because he’s gravely ill with stage 4 cancer. But luckily for him he walked Brooke down the aisle in her first wedding that occurred in August at Kathy Hilton’s home. Monty shared his sentiments in a touching Instagram post along with a photo of Brooke and him at her first wedding,
“My daughter is getting married on Saturday, her dream wedding on the beaches of Cabo. Everyone left this morning but unfortunately for me for health reasons I wasn’t able to attend, but I’ve still been blessed that I was able to walk her down the aisle in August.”
Monty goes on to mention the bleakness of his diagnosis,
“As everyone knows last May I was given a few months to live, but guess what I’m a fighter and its a year later, still not giving up.” Adding that he likes to party, “Anybody that knows me I know I like a good party lol. But it’s better for me to stay here and get better so I can be around my family and children a long time.”
