Kim Richards was certainly behaving on Monday’s edition of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” And in typical fashion, her cast-mates Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville and Taylor Armstrong all blogged this week about how they think Kim fell off the wagon when the ladies traveled to France.
Kim, a recovering alcoholic, was behaving erratically on the trip, which was televised on Monday’s episode. At one point, she nearly missed a private cooking class, leading her co-stars to speculate that she had taken too prescription medication. When Lisa questioned her about it, Kim snapped at her.
On her blog, Lisa wrote that the cast was “acutely aware” of “a significant change in Kim’s behavior, but couldn’t quite understand what caused it. She says she knows it wasn’t alcohol and that the RHOBH cast are fully behind Kim’s struggle for sobriety.
“But she seemed sleepy, lethargic, rambling, and almost incoherent at times,” she says.
Lisa says in her blog that it’s nothing unusual for Kim to keep them waiting, but that had been when Kim was taking prescription meds. So Lisa asked her if she had taken a sleeping pill. Now, Lisa admitted that was probably insensitive, since she was basically accusing Kim of relapsing, but she still found Kim’s response overly “emotional and volatile.”
Brandi Glanville agreed that Kim “seemed very unstable during our Paris trip, and we were all worried about her.
“Kim seemed ?ne one second and then completely off the next,” Brandi wrote. “We were all very concerned about her … Lisa was truly concerned, but Kim took it as something it wasn’t.”
Taylor, whose own issues with the bottle have been under scrutiny as of late, was not on the trip, but that did not prevent her from remarking that she “was bewildered by Kim” and her behavior throughout the Parisian getaway, where she seemed obvlivious to the other housewives’ reasons for their concerns.
Taylor said she “was nervous for Kim,” “knew something wasn’t right with her,” and had a “pit in [her] stomach seeing her not lucid.”
“We all love Kim and want her to be healthy and happy. Any sign that she may not be on the positive path she has been on since her treatment evokes concern from everyone in the group. Kim has said that everyday is a struggle and we are all so proud of her for each day she succeeds.”
