UPDATED: Kim Richards Found! Back in LA After Wedding, But Not Back in Rehab!

Posted on Jun 1 2015 - 9:32am by Avigail


As we reported, Kim Richards, star of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” attended her daughter’s, Brooke Brinson’s wedding in Cabo last weekend. Reportedly, Kim was under the influence at the wedding and caused a major scene pissing off the bride. Reports surfaced that after the wedding, Kim went missing and ditched rehab.

A family friend confirmed, Kim was “out of it” and “in a bit of a fog” at the wedding, but maintains that she was not openly drinking alcohol. The insider revealed, Kim sat next to her sister Kyle Richards during the ceremony last Saturday. The friend also said, Kim was “together the first half of the ceremony,” but didn’t comment on the rest of the evening. When the married couple hosted a farewell brunch on Sunday, Kim was MIA. Supposedly her friends and family had no idea of her whereabouts and were concerned.

According to TMZ Live, on May 28th, Kim finally made contact with her family but there is no mention of the RHOBH star’s actual whereabouts. More importantly, she has NOT returned to rehab to complete her treatment for addiction to alcohol and controlled substances. Kim went so much off the rails at the wedding that her sober coach quit and left her in Mexico.

Supposedly, Richards’ attorney was in the process of negotiating a plea deal in connection with Kim’s drunken rampage arrest in April. Earlier this month, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office moved to criminally prosecute the reality star. Richards was formally charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a cop. Since being criminally charged, Richards’ attorney has been in talks with the DA to get his client off the hook, using her rehab staycation as leverage but her recent stint in Mexico may thwart all efforts.

      She ran into Waldo, Dora the Explorer and Carmen San Diego and they booked her a flight from Margaritaville to L.A.

    I wonder how her failure to return to rehab is going to effect the outcome of her court case. She needs to go back into rehab and straighten herself out.

      Well, she was supposed to report to rehab last Monday and if it hasn’t happened yet, chances are it’s not going to happen – which is fine with me. I want her and Boozdi off my TV screen.

      What she needs and what she wants are two different things to her. SMH

    Man, it sounds like Kim went on a drug/alcohol binge and decided to let somebody know where she was at.
    All I can say is that it’s up to Kim whether she wants to live or not.

    • Seusseroo June 1, 2015 at 12:22 pm -

      They probably found her in a crack house in Compton. Poor Kim Richards.

      • Marsbars09 June 1, 2015 at 1:17 pm -

        LMAO! Hey, she was probably blending in with the other derelicts at downtown L.A’s Skid Row.

        • Seusseroo June 1, 2015 at 1:19 pm -

          Haha! Oh yes….how could I forget. Kim would fit right in with that crowd. She could go missing there for months.

    The pampered nasty little bitch should have to detox in jail …. serves her right since she is now driving drunk again around Beverly Hills

    • Seusseroo June 1, 2015 at 12:21 pm -

      Hey Chacha! You took the words right out of my mouth. LMAO!

    • Rochelle Barozzi June 1, 2015 at 4:12 pm -

      THAT is exactly what she needs!

  6. PalmdalePatty June 1, 2015 at 12:34 pm -

    That nasty judge should be arrested for being such a HATER. Kim’s ex-husband used to own the Beverly Hills hotel, so she should have free rampaging privileges for life. Poor Kim, she should be allowed to live her life as she sees fit. Her nasty jealous kids just want to take the one and only thing that makes her happy away from her. I only hope that when Kim is rotting in jail, they realize what a precious gem, and the best party-buddy any kid could have is missing from their lives and they finally allow Kim to just be great.

    • Livie1 June 1, 2015 at 1:56 pm -

      LOL Patty! Very nice tongue-in-cheek comment!! Yes, that Kim really is a gem or is it a lump of coal??? Hmmmm…let me get back to you on that 😉

    • Nancy Krystofik June 1, 2015 at 5:17 pm -

      That’s just it, used to own… And some Xhusbands like to be a bit mean….I don’t think her kids are nasty and jealous, spending time around alcoholics-drug addicts is tuff, and it will destroy your body, but yes, party on Kim…

      • PalmdalePatty June 1, 2015 at 5:36 pm -

        A body’s just another vessel to put alcohol in and break down pills.

    • muy loco June 10, 2015 at 8:18 pm -

      Palmdalepatty you are either an acholic or drug addict yourself!! Kim Richards needs to go to jail! She has never been sober since RHBH has began! She is a hypocritical bitch to everyone!!! She cares for no one but herself….who the hell ruins their daughters wedding?? You need help too!!

  7. Elizabeth Fisher June 1, 2015 at 12:35 pm -

    Iffin you want to find Kim, find her doggie-son Kingsley.

  8. WaWaWaWHAT! June 1, 2015 at 4:23 pm -

    This chick has balls, I’ll tell ya damn

  9. side of Sour Cream June 1, 2015 at 9:27 pm -

    She’s horrible, nasty, bossy and rude when sober, she’s pathetic, stupid and mean when wasted. So I can’t imagine why anyone would care AT ALL if this woman stays drunk for the rest of her life. because WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

  10. whose gonna do my hair! June 2, 2015 at 11:59 am -

    I thought the LA County Jail was so crowded they keep celebrities for only a few hours and let em loose? Maybe she can do community service, without her family, like in a homeless shelter or a skid row place run by monks.
