Kim did not attend the show’s reunion, but taped a separate solo interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen. In it, she explains why she checked into a rehab facility as the show wound down this season.
“I’m an alcoholic,” she said. “I’m an alcoholic.”
The socialite Kim is aunt to Paris Hilton. Previously on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills she admitted to taking a cocktail of prescription pills, including Lexapro, Trazadone and Topamax. It seems she also has a problem with alcohol.
The admission will no doubt remind reality TV fans of last season’s finale when Kim fought with her sister Kyle after she called Kim a delusional and demented alcoholic, adding, “Mom had to die and leave this on my shoulders!”
Rumor has it that Kim has finally decided to seek treatment because Bravo faced her with the boot from Real Housewives if she didn’t. That is quite something from a show which thrives on the drama of its stars such as Camille Grammer’s divorce from Kelsey; Russell Armstrong’s suicide and the subsequent allegations that he beat wife Taylor over a long period of time.
The first of the three-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special airs Monday at 9/8c on Bravo.
