When Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards was infamously arrested for public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery on an officer last April the only thing on her mind was her children. Kim recently opened about how devastating it was to tell her children about her arrest.
“I felt terrible and I didn’t know how to tell them,” Kim recalls.
Kim describes calling her kids saying, “I think the phone rang, and it was Brooke, and I said, ‘Hello,’ and she said, ‘Hi, so you got arrested?’ I said, ‘Yeah,’ and she said, ‘I’m just glad you’re OK, Mommy. I love you.'”
In the end, Kim was heartbroken to have hurt and embarrassed her kids by getting arrested. “My heart ached for my children.”
Kim also reveals that prior to going to rehab her life coach, and psychiatrists told her she didn’t need to go to treatment. “They just said you don’t need to. [My doctor] said come see me three times a week, go to your meetings,” she added. “You don’t need to go… They all said just go to your meeting.”
