‘Real Housewives’ Star Kim Richards May Have Relapsed

kim richardsKim Richards had one of the saddest story lines on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Unlucky in love, lonely, and -- as we learned during the reunion show -- an alcoholic. Looks like her bad luck continues. After what everyone thought was a successful stint in rehab, Radaronline reports that Kim may be abusing pain pills.

According to the website, the reality star, who went to a treatment facility at the start of the year, has friends and family members heartsick about the alleged relapse.


This is especially shocking because she had been clean for several months before slipping back into bad habits, according to the site. Apparently, she took a downward turn when she was prescribed pain pills after a nose job.

A friend revealed she was taking Vicodin for the post-surgery discomfort and Ambien to help her sleep. "Kim has appeared to be totally stoned whenever I've seen her recently," the pal also told Radaronline. "Her speech is slurred, her eyes are glassy, and she's incoherent at times."

Sad, isn't it. It’s as though none of these Real Housewives can get their lives together. Feuding aside, they are constantly dealing with bankruptcies, failed relationships, troubled children, addiction, bad hair weaves, the list goes on and on. It's an endless stream of one hot mess after another.

Are you surprised by the news that Kim Richards may have relapsed? What do you think about the women on the show?
