It’s time for round 2…or is it 3…4…5? “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, Kim Richards is back in rehab, following the recent disastrous mid-treatment relapse at her daughter Brooke’s wedding, in Mexico. This facility is a different one from the one she entered after being arrested following a drunken meltdown at the Beverly Hills Hotel, in April.
Radar Online is reporting that the Malibu rehab facility is one that does not focus on addiction, but rather specializes in treating patients who suffer from serious mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
Viewers have witnessed years of Kim’s addiction struggles on the show, and many have asserted that underlying psychological issues were being routinely masked by booze and/or pills. Could treatment for a mental disorder be what Richards truly needs to get to the root of her addiction issues?
Another report claims that Kim is already making plans to transition out of rehab. Sources assert that she plans to move in with her sister, Kathy Hilton and her husband Rick, whenever her current rehab stint ends.
“Kim will probably move in with Kathy and Rick when she gets out of rehab,” a source tells RadarOnline. “Kim’s family has been worried about her. Things have gone from bad to worse for her. The show was supposed to be her saving grace but now she has almost nothing.”
As previously reported, Kim Richards’ reality TV career has ended, with recent news that Bravo has canned the perpetually unreliable addict.
Do you think a shifted focus of treatment may be the ticket to Kim Richards finally shaking off the beast of addiction? Will Kathy keep up the predictable enabling sisterly love, or finally put her foot down with her junkie sibling?
