Kim Richards

Kim explains why she wanted to talk to Taylor and her behavior in Paris.

on Feb 26, 20130

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all having a great week! I'd like to start with something light, like how I noticed the turtles on the wall. I've been to my sister’s home a million times, and I had never noticed the TURTLES before! I was surprised to see them, and I had no idea that my girlfriend Tiffany had gifted them to her. What can I say. . .TURTLES! I love Tiffany. I love turtles! Yay!

Let's talk about how Kyle and I ended up at Taylor's! When Taylor called my home the night of my party, which from what I understand Taylor said she didn't feel it was important to show up to a nose party. Which I agree. A nose party? What she didn't know is, this wasn't just a nose party. This is the first place I've had to call home in so long I can't even remember. I have been working on putting my home together, all along keeping in mind the day when I would have my special friends together. I've been working on decorating my house and putting my garden together. I wanted to include all my friends -- from childhood on up -- and I have been working on this since the day I moved in. It was a perfect summer night to get all my friends together and this was a chance to celebrate the life changes I've made, and for them to see my home, and an opportunity for them to see how I live, AND for them to see my new nose. It was a little bit of everything, but it was very important to me. And that's what Taylor didn't know.

I was surprised by the sound of her voice on the phone, and that she was with a man we really didn't know! When she didn't know Kennedy's whereabouts, we all were very concerned. It wasn't that we were concerned about Kennedy's safety, Kennedy was here with us. I was more concerned with Taylor's state of mind.

Kim I am so thankful that you are taking the necessary steps to better your life and your children's lives. It was so heartbreaking to watch as you self-destructed on previous seasons.

Your behavior this past season shows that you need to focus on your actions and not the actions others. It wasn't your place to tell Adrienne & Paul what Brandi said or to call out Brandi on her behavior.  When you feel the need to point a finger at others, remember there are three pointing back at you.

My blessings and best wishes for your recovery and new life.  I really hope to see a woman who shows more wisdom and maturity in the future.

Kim I just wanted to say you are doing a great job. Sometimes it's not easy. One thing to remember that sometimes your family may question you about the way you are acting, remember it's not because they think you are doing something wrong it's because they love you and want you to know they will always love and help you if you need it. Remember what you go thrugh they go through. Love yourself first! You are a great person and things will get easier. blessing to you always.

Kim needs to distance herself from her manipulative sister she does not care for her,she wants to be the it girl,that is all she is about.She wants to be about friends.I lost respect for her last season when i saw her disgusting treatement toward her sister.She barely ever has her sister's back,and now to see her husband disrespected whether it was his place or not its up to her to tell him not Brandi. Her true colors are being shown now by Lisa who feels the sting now.

Your anger over Brandi was very knitpicking. O.K. she said amphitamine instead of alcohol. But who knows what you did when you went in the bathroom so often for. Beside, before that, you and your sister were very, very nasty to Brandi who came with the crutch which you later hid. You and your cohorts were not nice to a young, beautiful, and tall newcomer. Disgusting was your behavior. And you have the nerve to blame it all on Brandi. Every one watching that episode knew that Brandi talked in the retaliation mode and no one looked for accuracy. Get over it, Kim. Your real enemy is the alcohol.

Leave Taylor alone and start working your own steps.... like making amends to people you have hurt.  You are too self involved and cannot take responsibility for yourself.  I mean really a drug mix up you can fool yourself and thats about all the people you are fooling

When Kyle was talking to Dwight at Lisa's, your attention grabbing behavior prevented their conversation from continuing and it made you look sad and pathetic.  I felt sorry for Kyle, not you.  Stop wallowing in the victim role, because it's very hard to watch, and it must be harder to live.  You see yourself as a victim when often you're not.  Get out of that mindset.  Start taking caring for yourself and don't worry so much about everyone else.

Hi Kim, I'm glad to see you are doing well, however i think you need to face up to something before you can really recover. You have repeatedly blamed Kyle and also Brandy for "outing" you to the public and have blamed the discomfort it caused your family on them. The truth is that you "outed" yourself with your blatantly drunken behaviour. Do you really think we weren't aware that you were abusing some sort of substance long before Kyle or Brandy spoke up? I think you need to take responsibility and recognize that it was your own actions that made your problems public. Stop blaming everyone else for your own mistakes. That said, I wish you success with your recovery.

One quick question. You said Faye is actually a nice person and a lady on Watch what Happens with Andy. If she is why does she go to events she's not invited to and start drama? Just curious. Also as an recovering addict myself, we are taught that we can transfer our addictions to anything. Perhaps yours is instigating and gossiping, unhealthy substitute. Just worry about yourself, be yourself and everyone will love the sober Kim without you having to be mean for attention.

Kim, PLEASE take your tears and your sobriety problems home and keep them to yourself.  I can't take another season of you with all the tears.  You are just not offering anything to the show.

Seriously Kim, why are you blaming Brandi for everything???  Do you remember how you treated her when you two met???  Your actions towards Brandi on game night was horrid!!!  Maybe you need to watch last season's show again.  You owe Brandi an apology!!!  Brandi owes you nothing!!!  Brandi did not hurt you, you hurt you!!!  Stop rewriting history!!!  I wish you well in your recovery, but you need to own your actions in order to heal!!!  Brandi has been very kind to you under the circumstances.

I am unsure as to why an active cast member has very little blog updates, but it is what it is...  Speaking of it is what it is, could you try that motto in your life.  Hanging out to hurt and crying poor me have possibly been one of the reason you hid your pain in not so great ways.  Let go of things, yes Brandi hurt you.  Get over it.  She apologized.  You accepted.  You were making headway into being friends this season.  Seriously, stop crying poor me.  You are a grown woman.  You will never be fully happy if you can forgive and apologize.  As for apologies, don't you think you owe Brandi one.  Brandi may have been harsh and spoke without a filter, but it was you and your sister that were laughing and making comments about her at that awful game night.  When Brandi first joined the cast, everyone had comments when she showed up to the party on crutches.  You served up b*tchiness on a platter first.  Move on and just be happy.

Kim, enough with the Brandi hurt me nonsense.  You and your sister were completely rude to Brandi.  Let's face it, you were loaded.  She just got the method of your getting loaded wrong.  YOU STARTED IT!  For heavens sake stop talking about it.  I really hope you get called out on this hypocrisy on the reunion show.

Oh no another upcoming sceen with you crying,(the one with A),I can't take another show with you crying!! I've been watching the HW's shows for years. They use to be fun and exciting. Now they just seem depressing. Come on Bravo turn it around!!

Kim, If you now live a sober life, you need to stop using it as a crutch. You don't get a pass just because you struggled with demons. I just could not believe the melt down you were having with Kyle in the clip from Lisa's party. Really? You haven't gotten over Brandi's first impression of you and it "hurts"?? Really? You were ridiculous in the episode where you met Brandi. Out of the gate you attached her. YOU hid her crutch for crying out loud! And yet, you need to hold on to all that "hurt"?  Stop being a hypocrite. You want people to forgive and forget all the junk that you've caused. How about you let go of your immature grudge and stop trying to garner attention from Brandi's first impression of you. She's apologized. Grow up and own your crap. It's part of the strength of sobriety.  (ps, your friend Faith R is a really self righteous, gossipy, hypocrite and you should stop defending her)

Well, happy that you have stopped drinking. But, you appear to start to much trouble. You need to stop and listen to what the others are saying to you. Lisa never said anything bad about you. You took one incident and blew it up. You have become one I don't enjoy watching.

I think you are one of the strongest women in the group.  You went through so much and you are standing stronger, sexier than ever.  I applaud you and your classy nature.  Everyone can learn from you.  Love watching you.  Keep going don't give up!

Since you don't blog on a regular basis, I am posting a comment on this one.  I was watching previews to next weeks show as well as the reunion and I have to say isn't part of sobriety owning up to the wrongs you have done?  It seems to me that Brandi has apologized and extended a hand to you and yet you have yet to acknowledge the wrong you did to her on the day you met her.  Also, last season didn't Paul and Adrienne talk about you being "out of it" or perhaps drunk.  But wait that was behind your back where as Brandi said it to your face.

Will you ever admit to your wrongs and apologize  for your mistakes.  You seem to believe that you are the victim ALL the time.  It's so old.

Are you seriously bringing up what happened on game night yet again?!?  Talk about beating a dead horse.  I can't take you acting like a victim anymore;  Brandi was the victim that night, not you.  Please leave this show, focus on your sobriety and get some therapy!

Kim you don't know what you want or who you like, you just go where the wind blows. It would be a great idea to keep your feelings and opinions to yourself, until you have it sorted out. Your comment about how wonderful Faye can be to her "friends", I could not help but laugh, and think, that even the cruelest people, do like someone or something, so in that sense you are right.

I was appalled that you attempted to blame Brandi for the Maloof divorce. Brandi has been nothing but kind, supportive, forgiving, and loyal to you, and yet you can't drop your ridiculous grudge against her. Your own sister called you out for being an alcoholic, and that was far, far worse than what Brandi said, which was just an understandably angry comment made to defend herself against your and Kyle's vicious verbal assault on her. But you still behave as though Brandi deeply and intentionally wounded you, and I'm sorry, but NO ONE comprehends why you are still fumingly hoarding this grudge. After all the kindness Brandi has shown you, to hear you self righteously proclaim the Maloof divorce to be partly Brandi's fault was just outrageous!! What a mean girl you actually have turned out to be---a spiteful, dishonest, self centered, profoundly bitter woman. And, holding grudges and anger the way you do,  is not just absurdly immature, but toxic to anyone's health, and to recovery. Kim, for your OWN good, grow up.

Kim, I think you are doing GREAT with your recovery!!! I think your sister throws you under the bus  time after time! You are better then these Ladies on the show !I think deep down she is so jeaulous of you!! I think you are beautiful and keep being yourself and not like the fakes on the show!!! keep on being Kim with Love :) p.s. you are the only REAL STAR on this show!!!!!

I commend you on your sobriety and hope you can keep up the fight but..... you have now turned into the preacher?

I lived with an alcoholic once and I know the routine. The drunk doesn't remember half the stuff they did so when they sober up they only remember what others may have said or done to them. Don't forget when a drunk is drunk they say and do many things they seem to forget. You and Kyle started the mean girl thing with Brandi, not the other way around. And so she called you a drunk and a drug addict, you need to get over it. The way you were acting that night I would have called you more than that. Your big comeback is how much Brandi hurt you? You should be concentrating on how much you hurt yourself. Brandi used words, you used bad behavior towards everyone for many years. Think about it and get off the poor me wagon.

Hi Kim, when are you coming back to acting????  I would love to see you in something on t.v.  I have the perfect suggestion for you.  Do something on the Lifetime Channel or the Hallmark Channel.  They always have good, interesting, classy movies on there.  Perfect for you!!!!

Kim,

 

        I think you should date Adrienne's ex - Paul, just saying.  You both have a child like love of life,  he was the one who was compassionate and helpful in your struggles,  and you would have tons of fun!

kim, you dont need to jump on the "brandi bandwagon" to get attention. lords knows you wont stand up and speak the truth. you are now attacking brandi because it is working for the other ladies. kim,i wish you would stay true to yourself.

Kim -  your sobriety hits home for lots of people.  It truly is one day at a time.  Your bringing this to the forefront is brave,  Its nice to see you are getting along better with Kyle.  Family - its all that is implied by that simple word.  But the others on the show - namely Brandi and now Lisa, have turned to be catty women in your regard. Brandi's attack on you last year and her SO fake apologizes are not what good things are made from.  She is constantly picking at you and has Lisa backing her up.  Hopefully you will see through their B.S. and excise them from your most important role of sobriety,  Brandi appears to have bad intentions that you fail, but there are so many more who are happy you are staying healthy - one step at a time.  Good Luck - just watch your back............

I do hope, you're able to stay Sober, but I think Kyle uses that for her own selfish attention.  If she cared she wouldn't constantly put you in positions where alcohol is present.  As far as Brandi that should be dropped, she was the one that was attacked first, and people say crazy things when angry, but if you and your sister would not have fueled that anger then it wouldn't have happened.

Kim let me first start by saying I wish you the best.  You are all over the place from your anger with Kyle to Lisa to Brandi.  Your sister outed you period! enough said what happened with you and Brandi unfortunately was the result of Brandi being alone to defend herself against hideous behavior of you, kyle  and yes I will include taylor and dana - when someone new comes in the mix everyone is responsible to make them feel welcome at the very least not feel attacked.  So for Petes Sake get over it!  Brandi has shown you more support in the last two episodes than Kyle has in the last two seasons-- get real

Kim, I hope you read these---after watching the previews of when you are angry at Kyle for not defending you more about Brandy hurting you, I feel compelled to comment. First, you need to go back and watch the way you treated Brandy before she made the comment about you being a user--you and your sister were extemely rude and mean to her. You were a serious BULLY and she finally snapped and made a rude comment about you using crystal meth. Yes, that was rude of her but I really can't blame her after the way you treated her. Secondly, you probably owe Brandy a huge THANK YOU---would you have gotten help with your addiction if everyone around you kept "protecting" you and hiding the truth? Her honesty probably was probably what got you to finally seek help. You were headed for complete self destruction and the people around you (including your sister) were part of the cover-up. What she did probably saved your life.

You were both right and wrong in last nights episode. You were right that two ppll (Paul and Adrienne) need to work together through tough times. However you were wrong to suggest that Brandi had any part of it. While her comment might have caused issue with them, they were headed this direction a long time earlier. Adrienne on camera to her husband was rude crude and insulting. Her attitude toward her chef was love and care and affection...she had it backwards. No way a marriage like that could stay together if one of the parties treats their spouse like yesterdays trash.

You are beyond ridiculous to try and blame the Maloofs divorce on Brandi. Really please don't be that stupid.

I am soooo sick of you blaming Brandi for what she said about you at Dana's party last year. You deserved that and much more. I don't know why she ever chose to forgive YOU and be the nice person that she is to you. You really haven't earned it. I think you're a lousy person to say the least and a liar to boot!!!!

The preview video of you whining about how Brandi hurt you is disgusting.  OMG, I am so sick of you and your narcissistic behavior.  Everything has to be about you.  You have no clue of how to behave in social situations.  Shame, shame, shame on you.  You and your sister are an embarrassment.  The viewers clearly love Brandi and you and your sister can't bear it.  We did get a glimpse of what your sister goes through with you.  I felt sorry for her in that scene and can only imagine how impossible you must be.  The two of you are dreadful.

Why did you throw Brandi into the Mahoof's break-up? Anyone who watched this show from the beginning could see how she constantly put him down. And there were obvious body language of this couple who could not stand each other. What's wrong with you and your sister? Brandi has been calling out and they are mostly accurate. You and the likes of you can't stand her because you like to glaze or avoid the truth altogether.

 Whatever happened to the 12 step program? Aren't you supposed to own up to your mistakes and talk to the people you have harmed in your past? Kim you need to wake up and live in the present. The way you looked the other night I would say you are back on something.

 @KmeI think she just caught up in what everyone else in her circle was telling her. Perhaps Kim should watch the show she is in...she might have gotten a clue. But I am giving her a pass on this one.

I thought Kim was talking about Lisa, when she and Kyle were saying they were both hurt by her. .Do I have that completely wrong?
