Kim Richards Update: Bravo Forced The Real Housewife Into Rehab

December 06, 2011 11:28 AM by Lisa Princ

Yesterday we learned that Kim Richards of Bravo’s hit show The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills checked into rehab, but now rumor has it that Kim did not make the decision to go to rehab. Instead, sources say that Bravo forced Kim Richards into rehab. Read on for the scoop!

When the news broke that Real Housewife Kim Richards entered rehab, viewers weren’t so shocked by this as the star has been acting erratic lately, leaving us all to speculate what exactly Kim is on. Now, sources have come forward to reveal that it was not Kim’s decision to head to rehab, but instead it was Bravo’s. A source close to the situation told Radar Online: “Kim was told by the people at Bravo that she had to get help and that help meant going into rehab immediately,” adding “The network people were worried about her and wanted her to try and fix her problems.”

The source went on to add that Kim Richards was told if she wanted to keep her spot on the show, she would have to check into rehab. Kim Richards, who supposedly only has the show as her source of income, was pretty much forced into rehab upon hearing this from Bravo. And Bravo has good reason to make such demands, as the source went on to say: “After Russell Armstrong’s suicide Bravo is trying to making sure that nothing bad happens to the people on their shows. They don’t want any more tragedies on their hands.”

    It’s was just so obvious she needed help. So does her sister Kyle who is very nasty and has always denied Kim has a problem. Taylor is the next suicide victim waiting to happen if they don’t force her into rehab ASAP. This is what life in Beveryly Hills is all about…trying to constantly look younger and be richer. I’m glad I left there years ago.

    I think Bravo did the right thing by forcing Kim to go to rehab. I hope that she gets the help taht she needs. However, I also feel that everything does not have to be shown to the world regarding these men and women. They deserve some sort of privacy. To Kim be strong and don’t give up. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

    getting clean is a personal choice, but bravo is doing the right thing especially after russell’s suicide.

    I definitely think pushing Kim into rehab was the correct thing to do. Anything they can do to get the woman the help she needs is good.

    “Bravo is trying to making sure” who writes these articles w/o editing them? I’m glad Kim went to rehab, she obviously needed it. I loved when she was talking to Paul and Adrienne on the phone while they were waiting in their limo at the airport for her. She is rambling on…”I love the planes over there” hmmm??? what? say whaaaa?

    A good employer looks out for their employees. In this case it was undoubtedly to head off possible bad publicity but it was still the right thing for Bravo to do. And a good thing. Repeat, it was good and right.

    Giving an ultimatum is not forcing a person to do something since freedom of choice is involved. Ms. Richards has skated by on her eccentricity as the explanation for her erratic behavior long enough. I’m glad Bravo (Andy Cohen?) has decided to take the reins and attempt to intervene.

    yes – she should be in rehab no matter how she gets there or who puts her there. Probably easier for her employer to do this rather than her family. Families don’t have that control and they should not have to take the blame – pretty much have their hands tied behind their backs when it comes to an addict.

    Do they offer group discount therapy because every one of those women need help; be it attitude, addiction or social morals.

    Good for Bravo, unfortunately, they’ll probably keep that retard on the show. Bravo TV, stop promoting alcoholism, and drug abuse on your show.
