Despite falling off the wagon and ruining her daughter’s wedding in Mexico, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, Kim Richards is saying NO to rehab.
“Kim came back from Cabo last week but is refusing to go back to rehab,” an insider tells Radar Online. “She suffered a huge relapse at the wedding, and was mixing booze and pills. However, Kim is refusing to go back to rehab.”
As previously reported, Richards, 50, was under the influence at the wedding and caused a ruckus, embarrassing her daughter and her guests. Then to make matters worse, after the wedding, Kim went missing and ditched rehab. She’s back in Los Angeles but is not keeping up with her commitment to sobriety.
“Kim has been in contact with sister’s Kyle and Kathy, but both siblings are obviously very concerned about her,” the source claims, “there is only so much the family can do for Kim, and refusing to get help is a big obstacle.”
Richards previously spent time in a treatment facility for alcohol abuse in 2011 and has insisted on episodes of RHOBH that she’s been sober ever since.
The reality star’s attorney was in the process of negotiating a plea deal in connection with Kim’s drunken rampage arrest in April. Rehab was an intricate part of the deal however the plea may be off the table now in light of her refusal to return to rehab. Stay tuned.
