We haven't seen Kim Richards on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season, but we've still heard a lot about her. However, not all of it has been positive, and Lisa Vanderpump is not OK with that. "You know what, really, I hate is now if I see the show and I see people being negative about [Kim], I hate that," Lisa said during an interview with E! News posted Wednesday (clip below).
The past year certainly hasn't been easy for Kim. The RHOBH alum was arrested twice and spent some time in rehab. Her ex-husband Monty Brinson, with whom she remained very close and shares a daughter, Brooke Wiederhorn, passed away in January at the age of 58 after a long battle with cancer.
Lisa and Ken Todd were unable to attend Monty's memorial service a few weeks ago, but the RHOBH restaurateur said she reached out to Kim after his passing. "I've texted her backwards and forwards, and she's been very sweet," Lisa said. "She's so lovely, and the problems that she's kind of had has been very difficult for her, I would imagine."
Lisa also said that she is "1,000 percent sure" Kim is sober now.
Of course, Lisa has also about Kim with her sister Kyle Richards this season of RHOBH. Relive one of their tense discussions, below.
