The last few months have been difficult for Kim Richards to say the least. After being arrested and a few stints in rehab, Kim has been fired from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” This is serious news for Kim since she needs the money from the show. Kim wants to return to reality television, but her family may be standing in her way.
According to Radar Online, Kim was asked to be a part of the new VH1 show “Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn.” The show is a spin-off of “Couples Therapy.” On “Family Therapy,” Dr. Jenn will visit the homes of several famous celebrities to help fix their troubled families. The new series has already begun filming with Dina and Michael Lohan, and “producers had also offered Kim a spot on the upcoming season.”
“Kim wasn’t interested in the concept, or what she would be doing, but needed to earn a paycheck,” the source said. “She approached her kids about the proposal, and asked them to reach out to Kyle, because they aren’t talking.”
Unfortunately for Kim, Kyle and her children told Kim she should not do the show. “The kids and Kyle all said no way,” the insider continued. “It’s not because they don’t want to help Kim, but they felt she needed to go to rehab. If Kim had already successfully completed treatment, and was in a good place to begin truly working on relationships with the family, that would be a different story.”
Due to Kim not having a home of her own, her financial issues have also been all over the news. The source also went on to say that Kim is now living with several friends in the Los Angeles area, because Kim’s family will no longer take her in. “Her family refuses to allow Kim to live with them because she is in denial about the addiction,” a source said. “They will no longer be enablers to Kim’s whims.”
The source concluded by saying that Kim’s family is very concerned for her, but until she admits that she really needs help, “there is nothing they can do.”
Do you think Kim’s family really told her she could not join a new reality show? Do you think “Family Therapy” could have helped Kim?
