During a 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' reunion, set to air on January 30, 2012, Kim Richards admitted she is an alcohol. All of the reality-ladies reunited for a chat with Andy Cohen, but Richards was being treated in rehab and therefore sat down for a separate discussion with the Bravo presenter.
According to People magazine, Richards was asked why she had checked into rehab, to which she bluntly replied, "I'm an alcoholic.I'm an alcoholic" - her dramatic interview will air last in a trio of reunion specials. In part one, stars Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer and Lisa Vanderpump delve into the confrontation between Camille and Taylor at Lisa's tea party, while Kyle Richards rehashes her issues with Camille and Taylor. During the second part of the reunion, new cast-member Brandi Glanville joins the women to defend her controversial first season. Referring to the infamous bust-up during 'Game Night', Brandi recalled, "I was being bullied in a room and I had no friends".
Richards first rose to prominence as a child star and had roles in numerous Disney movies throughout the 1970's. Though now best known for her work on 'The Real Housewives', Kim has also appeared in a number of recent feature films, including opposite Christina Ricci in Black Snake Moan (2006) and in the 2009 adventure 'Race to Witch Mountain'.
