Kim Richards

Kim Richards tries to make sense of Camille's dinner and her relationship with Taylor.

on Dec 24, 20100

Hi, everyone. I hope you're having an amazing holiday season filled with peace, love, and joy. Sooo... I do not even know where to begin. I guess we'll start with the dinner party. I had a feeling that dinner at Camille's with all the women would end in something, but had no idea what I was getting myself into. Obviously it was loaded with drama, catty remarks, and immature behavior.... But i honestly can't say how and why the fighting even began. I'm never one to be in the middle of such drama, but that night I found myself caught in the middle of World War 2, once again.

I don't know what it is, but somehow Taylor and I seem to always go at it when there is drama around us. Caught up in the heat of the moment, I feel as though we both say things that we don't mean. I have no real issues with Taylor at all. If anything, I think we are both just very different people, with different morals and a different outlook on life.

After the fight, I was totally caught off guard when Kyle got mad at me. I feel as if she was just overwhelmed from the argument with Camille. As for riding home alone, the girls were all heading back into town, and I just wanted to go home. I'd like to see all of this put behind us so that we can move on.

I had more important things on my mind, as my daughter, Whitney, was getting ready to leave for the summer. She had been away at college, and I felt so grateful to have her back home with me again. Therefore it was difficult to see her leave and realize that her time home with me was limited. I know many critics out there are saying that I rely on my kids too much, but the reality is that they are my entire life -- nothing is more importamt to me and letting go isn't always easy. At this point in my life I am working on adjusting to the fact that my kids are growing up and becoming their own people in the world. Although, yes, it is true that I would love to have them home with me every day, I know that it is  not practical. It is important for them to get out in the world and away from home, and can only pray that they will always use their best judgment and remember all that I have taught them. Raising my children, I've always dreamed of them being strong, independent, and successful people, and I couldn't be more proud of the young adults that they have become.

Kim, it's a pleasure seeing how much better you seem to be. You look wonderful. However, though I am not a huge fan of Kyle's, I do not understand your reaction to her invitation. It's your niece's birthday party. I would think that the normal thing to do is to bring your entire family to the party and to forgive.

 

You were not perfect with Kyle, Kyle is not perfect either, and you BOTH have room to grow. But you will need to forgive in order to heal...hope to hear your thoughts, and stay strong in your commitment to clean living. It's the only way!

 

Bless you and your family ( and that includes Kyle!)

Kim, just heard you may be coming back on the show. Looking forward to seeing you and wish you the best. Hopefully, we can see more of your jewelry line and hear about your water bottle compaign for breast cancer research. I'm a two-time breast cancer survivor and appreciate your support.

Yay!!!! I heard the news, and even though it's not official, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you are returning to RHOBH. I can't wait to see you again in Season 2. Please come back and say "hi" to us very soon, or maybe you can launch an official "Kim Website" so we can keep up with your latest ventures including your jewelry line. We LOVE you, Kim!!!!

great to hear that you are coming back for a second season-- you are my favorite on the show. You really come off as real in a world full of reality series that never truly feel like true reality. You come off as kind and relatable and of course everyone knows that you are talented!

I hope you make the decision to do what is right for YOU and will make you happy. The party scene in BH is boring isnt it? Been there, done that. I'm with you on casual evening at home with good friends, family (minus self absorbed sisters) is much more fun than trying to be the fashion diva nightly.

That is so cute you are seeing SIngle Gary. What happened with the brit Lisa set you up with? He seemed like a kind and compassionate guy, something you need in your life.

Whatever you decide for Season 2, I support you and hope you do what is right for you! Adrienne obviously cares for you and somehow I think you and Camille would be good friends as well, now that her life has hopefully settled down a bit.

Be well. I'm just down the street and around the corner if you ever need a cup of coffee wearing just a ponytail and sweats!

Love Kim, you are my favorite on Beverly Hills Housewives

I must say you conducted yourself with such dignity and pride; i respect you on all levels. I hope to see you on the second season and stay true to who you are because you are such a beautiful and kind-hearted person. You are awesome!!!!!

KIM - YOU HAVE A PURE AND KIND HEART. As much as it may hurt to not always have the approval of others, know in your heart that the choices you are making are right for you and your children. What others think is their issue,not yours.

The choices your sisters have made seem to be about money and status---rather than family. If alcohol use causes problems for you, then that's for you to resolve privately and not our business.

You seem to be the kind of person who would make a wonderfully loyal friend. Stay true to yourself--as best you can in Bevery Hills!

Kim I will miss you if you are not coming back for season 2. One thing I would like to see as ending for a reality show and it is that you and your sister get along better or that you sister learn the lesson of respect and protect her sister in all aspects.

Dear sweet Kim, I loved so much getting to know you on the show. You are a breath of fresh air and very relatable. I admired the way you conducted yourself on the reunion show. Others can learn from your example of rising above the pettiness and being a true-blue sister and friend. Your interactions with children (Single Gary's granddaughter, your own kids) were very endearing and revealed what a kind-hearted person you truly are. I hope that you and your sister are on the path to better days ahead between you. It would be such a shame if you are unable to return for Season 2, as I think there would be many opportunities for redemption between you and your sister. But more importantly, we, your fans, really want to see you back in the spotlight. Your genuine emotions and caring ways have earned you a legion of admirers, as evidenced by the many positive and loving comments posted here on your blog. We appreciate your natural beauty and quirky humor, and we really hope that we see you again very soon.

...kind statements from sooooo many people... ...the truth is that people see the lovely "Prudence' for what she is... ...a kind hearted good soul... ...just look into her eyes...its easy to see... ...her strongest emotional ally is her love for her children... ...whenever she gets hurt by others rudeness... ...she can simply look at all her accomplishments in life... ...and there have been so many... ...more than the other 5 put together... ...and there are more to come... ...its obvious people care about her... ...she must be doing something right...!

Dear Kim (Little Prodence) - My daughters and I do hope that you will decide to return for the next season as we are all longtime fans of yours. You're grown into a beautiful woman - you can hold your own and you have more integrety than some of the others, don't let them push you around especially boring Taylor and unfortunately, your sister. You are no one's sacrificial lamb! We would not only love to see you return to the show, but would also love to see you in your own TV sitcom and or movie! Best wishes and do what is best for you and family!!

Geez....stay away from Taylor and Camille. They are on a different planet. One that isn't becoming to women! I wish you the best on your sisterhood with Kyle.

Kim I love love love you on Housewives. You are sweet and funny. I am so sorry that Taylor is so mean that she tried to come between you and your sister. It can't be blamed on editing but Kyle does not treat you the way she should. I hope that she will see this in the end, a lesson learned. I really hope that you will return for another season of Housewives. This season was very hard to watch because of all the drama but my hope is that all of this can be put aside and we can get to watch a wonderful show.

Kim, America is totally in love with you. You have won us over on the RHOBH. We really want you to return next season. I know it was a hellacious experience at times, but I really think you and Kyle can best patch things up by coming together on Season 2. I thought you handled yourself with flying colors on the reunion shows and displayed such grace and dignity. If you do decide to return next season, please insist that Bravo feature more of you with your water bottle charity and your jewelry line. And hopefully that catty Taylor will be long gone. If you're not up for another season of RHOBH, I do hope to see you on your own show or sitcom. You're fantastic.

Bravo!!
Bravo!!

could you get a show on your breathing new life into your career as you go back to acting and the empty nest feelings, getting back into the dating game, and shopping fora new home and I could go on because your life seems so much more interresting than those fake women. I also like Camille.

Kim - your dress at that dinner party is absolutely amazing, please share some particulars about it. While I could never look as amazing as you in it, I'd like to give it a try. Will you share????

I like you. It is ok to be honest with yourself. One of the reasons you did not come to Kyle's defense is b/c she tears you down constantly. You meant it when you said you really don't like most of those women's company. You are a lot like me, fake people are obnoxious. With the exception of you and Adrienne, I really could not be around the others....it would be too much. They are catty and think too much of themselves.

I don't know if you have an alcholic problem, but the way your sister treats you it will not likely get any better. I think that you should try to repair the relationship, but if she is going to demean you then set some boundaries.

I just read where you are not coming back next season and I honestly don"t blame you. I enjoyed watching you on the show because you are quirky funny and seemed to be like the rest of "us". It broke my heart to watch these women turn on you and not give you an ounce of credit for the things you had to say.

I hope you find another spot in the hollywood limelight but not in a situation where you are emotionally attacked over and over again. I loved you as a child actress and love you even more for enduring this show with such grace and dignity. Unlike the other ladies on the show you have an endearing quality about you that will continue to prevail throughout the years.

Aloha Nui Loa Kim!

...i agree with you...kim is ultra sensitive...and that makes it tough for her to simply ignore the harsh comments made by the others...if you really take a good look at her eyes, anyone can tell she is has a vunerbal sensitivity that the other 5 do not possess...the toughest thing to do is ignore people, though...especially if thousands of others are watching you...

Kim, I know the perfect man for you...Seriously....He is an assistant store manage for the Simi Valley Costco. His name is Kevin Merritt. He is a divorced father of a 10yr old girl. Just as your kids are your life, his daughter is his. He doesn't drink or smoke or do drugs. Please take a look at his facebook and if you're ever in the Simi Valley Costco, say Hi to him.

Kim, you were the ONLY one who made me smile during the dinner from hell. How polite of you to say "I like you too" to Allison when she told you how nice you are. Well, she was right about that!

We're sad that you probably won't be coming back, because brought alot of soul to the show, way beyond the screaming cat fights, assaults and bad behavior. You and Adrienne both showed heart and goodness, and the contrast made the show better.

Add me to the list of viewers who prefer to watch anything that you are appearing in. Thanks for braving the waters, and being the sweet, honest and funny person that you are. You have nothing to be embarrassed about.

Kim, come back you have so many fans!! I don't think you have an issue with booze, I think you have issue with confidence and don't like tenision. Your great you and Adrieanna are the sweetest on the show. The most real. Stick with it or I might not watch if your not on.

Kim, I am 49 and can remember you as far back as the day's of Nanny and the professor, and on to your Witch mountain movies, then later Hello Larry. Although I never saw any of the previous Real Housewife shows, when I heard you were a part of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I had to watch, since it always is interesting to see someone from your youth, that you have not seen in years.

I have to tell you, I was extremely impressed to see what a kind, humble, and decent woman you grew up to be. You were forced into a lot of needless drama, that you in no way provoked or deserved, and kept your dignity in a remarkable way.

You might not shop on Rodeo drive on a regular basis, or do lunch on a regular basis, but I think that just makes you easier to relate to. I hope we will be seeing more of you on the show in the future. You're a lovely person inside and out.

Kim, you are so cute. I feel badly that your sister decided to put your personal issues out there. I never saw that you drank too much on the show at all. I feel like Kyle just said that to pick.

Oh Bravo execs please please please! I would love to watch her in her daily life, with her kids, restarting her career. Something without all that drama. Something fun and happy a la Bethanny!

Please remove Kyle from your life, she is an opportunist, and I have been there when I am sick. You need to be happy and healthy for you. Her actions as well as the other housewives are bringing you down.

Camille, Adrienne and yourself are my favorite housewives. It was you and Camille and Andrienne that I really enjoyed watching on the show. I can see a wonderful friendship between you and Camille. Please don't let throw that opportunity away because of Kyle. You are an amazing actress and I hope you will resume your career as you have a lot of funs who will support you. You have a wonderful heart, as it showed on the show, I saw how you would rather allow someone to hurt you before you will hurt them and that takes strength. You have the strength, courage, and a very loving heart, and I'm impressed with your acting crenditials. This is something your sister Kyle do not have and she's jealous and resentiful toward you for this reason. Kim I truly don't believe you are an alcholic, but I do believe your sister Kyle has beaten you down so much until it has made you fragile. Well you can overcome Kyle as your career history proves it. Now my lady I want you to go back to your acting career, work your jewerly line, and become friends with Camille. Finally, I must say you are a beautiful woman inside and out.

BRAVO Bring Kim back, Kim is able to relate to us other single moms and she does not have a pack of people assisting her by choice, she is a hands on person, but she does the Beverly Hills thing. She wears sneakers and walks her dog herself. She BBQ's and will date a man she meets at the market, AND she can do the rest.

I checked her out online and she has been in way more films than Kyle. So she worked a lot.

Kim, I have really enjoyed you on the show. I like to see you in your own environment where you really shine as a kind and loving person and mother. I would love to see you next season. If that is not the path you choose, please do something in TV or movies. Having been reminding that you are still out there, please don't go back "into hiding."

good luck to you and all you do! Best wishes and hugs!

Hi, Bravo TV. Please keep Kim for the next season. She is by far the most attractive and unique woman. If Kim doesn't want to be engaging with other women, I actually have no problem with it! I can keep watching Kim's daily life all day long!!! She is that much interesting woman!! Her movement to the her voice to her expressions to her.....Everything about her is so special! Can't get over it!!

Hi Kim! Stay single. The only reason they all want you to have someone is cause misery loves company. Keep doin you. You certainly saw through Taylor. Too bad the others can't see her the way you do. She only went after you because she perceived you as being weaker than she is. Hang in there- I dont blame you a bit if you don't come back next year. Good luck in all you do.

Kim:

You probably want to be as far away from this housewive thing as you can, but if you're reading these blogs I just want to say that no matter what was shown on tv and no matter what is said in the tabloid magazines, I really think your a wonderful woman, mother, sister and person. How can I feel that way about someone I never met, I don't know. I saw you and I could relate to your meek more quite nature. I don't think meek is weak. I don't like conflict and petty drama either. I hate it, but I pick my battles and fire back where I see fit. I'm a single mom too. I'm no social butterfly either and it takes me a little time to connect and trust people. So, I saw you. I am very sorry about the situation between you and your sister. I pray that one day the two of you will find yourselves on higher ground and heal what ever it is that has been between you. Everyone has problems. I just think that it would be healthy for the two of you to work them out with counseling because it seems to really go deep. I also feel the two of you to seek out your on separate and individual counseling, because as much as Kim says her issues are due to you (your fault), I think she may have proven to american by her own actions on this show, that she has major issues of her own that don't have anything to do with you. So good luck. I wish you the absolute best. What ever y

WE MISS YOU KIM - I HOPE YOU COME BACK FOR SEASON 2: Everyone I know who watches the show loves you and/or feels sorry for the way you were treated by Taylor. The way you defended your sister at the reunion was so big of you - truly a sweet, forgiving, kind-hearted person. I know you love your sister, and I'm not encouraging you to end your relationship, but here are my observations and advice if you care to read it: 1) Spend more time with the girlfriends you have (outside of RHOBH), 2) Make new friendships with other women: I know you said you don't have as many friends due partially to being a child actress, but most of the mainstream (non-BH) women I know would love to befriend someone like you, 3) Continue acting - from reviews I've read, you are amazingly talented, 4) Distance yourself a little bit from Kyle and draw some boundaries with her (don't let her get in those little digs anymore - it's not okay!). As someone who has been in emotionally abusive relationships, I see an abusive cycle going on here. It's like a woman whose husband belittles and beats her, and then she begs him to forgive HER and doesn't want anyone putting him down. Kyle knows deep down that she mistreats you without just cause and it's almost like she gets angrier with you more and more as this nasty side of her comes to the surface for all to see - she knows it's not pretty. She knows most viewers side with you, and find you the more sympathetic, kind-hearted sister here. She hasn't stood up to Taylor on your behalf - quite the contrary. 5) If you can, get out of Beverly Hills! This place is so not you (that is a compliment), you are adorable with sweats and a ponytail and just loving being a mom. There are more women like you in other parts of the country. I know if sounds scary, but I think distancing yourself from that environment would do you a world of good, and you'll see you are not the one with the problem. Maybe you can go to Oklahoma - they'd rather have you there than Taylor ; )

I am so glad that you are on this show Kim. I hope you come back if there is a season two because so many of these women on these shows (including this season) are only wealthy and successful because of their husbands and its nice to see a woman that made it on her own. I just saw your film Tuff Turf and you are a really good actress. I forgot I was watching you and got really into the film. Anyway if you do decide not to be on season 2 then you must do your own show, maybe a show about dating and finding love. Love watching you and wish you and your family the best!
