On this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills we are seeing a sober Kim Richards for the first time in three seasons and she looks radiant. Kim had just left treatment when she started filming season three, and she is opening up about what it was like coming home after rehab to her kids. Kim feels great now and is revealing that she does not have to feel embarrassed watching herself on TV anymore!
Kim sat down with US Weekly to discuss her sobriety, and she tells the magazine, “This season I’m sober and I feel great!”
After rehab, Kim came home expecting things to just be back to normal but she reveals that that was not the case for her and her four children! Kim reveals, “Being sober and coming home from treatment, reconnecting with my kids, was not as easy as I thought it was going to be. I came home thinking, ‘Gosh, everything’s back to the way it used to be.'”
Kim praises her children for being her ultimate support and talks about how the recovery has helped them all bond and grow together. Kim adds, “We’ve worked together through this and we’ve come out way ahead of the game. I’ve grown a lot, they’ve grown a lot, and you will see [that] through the season. It’s been an amazing journey, for sure.”
I have been enjoying seeing Kim hang out with her children this season and be clean and healthy! Kim, who was not sober during seasons one and two, says she can finally watch herself on TV. She continues, “I didn’t want to watch the other seasons, because it was hard for me. But yet I filmed the other seasons knowing I was doing not the right thing. And that was a choice I made. I knew I wasn’t doing the right thing, and I did it anyway.”
These days, Kim feels happy and is taking life day by day. Kim says, “I’m so grateful today for the relationships I have with my kids, my sisters and my friends, God, my higher power. Spiritually, I’m super blessed.”
Congratulations to Kim! I have such a soft spot for this woman so I love to see her healthy and happy.
What do you think of what Kim had to say regarding her recovery?
