Kim Richards

Kim wonders if she should start acting again -- and if Carlton really did cast that spell on Joyce.

on Jan 280

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! It's so fun to be able to look back at some of these experiences.

The Hollywood Collectors Show was such a great day. I had so much fun. It is such a privilege for me to be able to connect with all of the people who have been supporters of my acting career since the beginning. They have watched me grow from a little girl to the person I am today. From Nanny and The Professor, Hello Larry, Escape to Witch Mountain, Tuff Turf, and now to RHOBH! Some of them feel as if they know me and being on a show like this has really given my fans a glimpse into what my life is really like.

It’s a really special feeling to know that after all these years people still respect me for what I am first and foremost -- an actress. I feel so loved and I honestly can say I feel a love for them as well.

Seeing Jimmy McNichol was awesome. I just couldn't believe when he walked over. He was one of my teen crushes. Jimmy’s sister, Kristy, and I worked together in the past. We performed on the Michael Landon Telethons and even put a music group together with our sisters. Yes, don't laugh too hard but we all used to sing together. We also attended the same school that was meant for kids with careers. However we didn’t attend regularly because of work. On one particular day at school I happened to see Jimmy there and he grabbed my butt! I couldn't have been more than 15, and this was of course the first time anyone had ever done this to me. So naturally I went home and put it in my journal. It was supposed to be private. But you know how sisters can be. Kyle dug it out and shared it with the whole family. . .For the last 35 years! I have never been able to escape The Roar of the Lion!

Over the years I've had the most amazing gifts from my fans that come not only from their hearts but hold so much sentimental value. Like my turtle pin! This was her grandmother's! Did you see how her mother cried when her daughter gave me the pin? It was so touching. Also, when the lady wanted me to hold Elias, the baby puppy. She's been very sick with cancer and Elias has been with her the whole time and means the world to her. The fact that she wanted ME to hold him and to take a picture was really touching. It is moments like this that make me so grateful for my job. From real babies to puppies to turtle pins, and so many others. You have no idea some of the very strange requests I've gotten. But I have to say I absolutely love being a part of these experiences! As I have shared before when people say to me, "You don't know what you've done for my life," I say back "You don't know what you've done for mine!" It's such a special feeling that I am so grateful for. I have the best fans in the world.

Everyone acts like Lisa dishing them when they don't show up to there party.. Yolanda invited her to a painting party..yeah she can put her business on hold to take the afternoon off to come to yolanda  for her adult daughter wall paintings.

She also RSVP Kim and sent a gift for her daughter who never thanked her for the gift??? I can't understand why with all the dancing with the stars rehearsals , her own TV show and running two restaurants she doesn't have time for a high school  graduation party.   First how many party like this can Kim milk?  Also Lisa kids are way past that.  Also Lisa isn't a friend of LIsa and shouldn't invite her to stupid parties like this.  Why doesn't Kim have a adult party with a male friend once and a while?  Does she not have guys she can date or fake a date and have a dinner party for the couples instead of dragging her kids into it? Or dog?

Seem to me Carmen or even the woman trying to get on with the gold sun glasses would be more interesting than Kim delivers.  I like Kim but really who is she to yell at Lisa husband for calling her out on her drinking..what?she sober and now all her mistakes are explained away??

Jimmy McNichol shows up frumpy and chopping on gum......I think you can do better.

Hey Kim-all you do is giggle and throw stones at people  Be careful-there are a lot of stones that can break that facade you carry around.  Take some responsibility for your own actions and face it girl, your out classed by most of the other cast members.

Kim thank you for finally putting nasty Ken in his place.  Every time someone tries to confront Lisa, he has to jump in with his nonsense.  She could kill someone and they would both deny it to the bitter end.  Good job, girl.

you are so irrelevant that you have to resort to rude and disgusting behavior that didn't involve you at all,  please tell Kim goodbye.

Let Me just say that I am turning off the show right now -- to see you so-called "Ladies" attacking Lisa is Pathetic and I wont watch it.  Lisa is a Kind, caring, motherly person -- I refuse to watch you stupid bimbos trying to take her down because you are all so childish.

Just watched the scene from 2 weeks ago when Brandi and Kim are discussing Lisa.  Kim brought up Joyce and how she was upset by Lisa's reaction when Joyce touched Lisa's hair.  She is telling this to the woman who has TORTURED Joyce all season, and that is evidence Lisa is evil?  Kim was telling this story to the woman who makes me miss Camille from the dinner from hell!  And Lisa had Cedric deported?  HAHA. Really?  They are going to have to come up with some better stuff than this.  Maybe Yolanda can feed them her story of Lisa planning a party the night of her stepdaughters wedding.

Kim you really need to get your life in order and organized. You always seem scattered, and unfocused. How you came off at Lisas husband is really irreprehensible. I would rather spend time with an 'old man' like him than with someone with your issues. You are really an odd and nasty woman. Hope you're getting the help you need. And you owe Ken and Lisa an apology. shame on you.

Bravo - time to put the trash out... Bye Bye Kim and BRANDI!!!

Remember you can't call people out for things they do when you have been very comfortable doing exactly the same thing. That's not mean that's fact. Including the fact that you haven't blogged since January and it's now the end of February. Get a grip and think before you call people out (especially if they sent a gift AND told you they wouldn't be there before hand) because they will bring up things you apparently don't want to remember . Just a piece of advice

Kim, since you have not blogging,  I will just post my comment here.  Brandi sees you you as the weakest link in the group  and used  u for  her own agenda.   You would do anything for her and with her to stay relevant and she know that.  You should be ashamed to  fight and yell at Ken.  You provoked him so don't whine if he yelled back.  You started with  a shallow issue of Lisa not showing up at your daughter's party. Very shallow!!!!

Kim is pissed at Ken for accurately calling her out on having a double standard.  She has missed events or shown up late and expects to get a pass because she is an alcoholic.  She might want to check steps 4,5, 8,9, and 10 of the 12 step program.

Kim ... Truly I have LOVED who you have become this season.... however, please be aware of the game Brandi plays... she talks behind everyone's back and is always pitting you against one another.  Please be friends with the ladies on the show...Kyle, Joyce and Lisa.. and leave the mean girls on their own playground.  I will watch the scenes with the four of you in them and fast forward through Carlton (scary) and Brandi.   I am not sure what to think of Yolanda....  hopefully she will start acting the way she says she is ....

You are funny at times; but why are you so angry at Ken.  He said what he said to your face; not behind your back.  It's not like he said anything untrue.  You're a different person now; and, yet you get upset when he said that.  i thought that part of your sobriety was to go back and apologize to people about your behavior.  I don't see where Lisa or Ken have been unkind to you -- instead I see that you hold grudges against them.

Truly think you're naturally quirky & fun, others misread it & believe you're using again.  I do think, however, there is some lacking in your relationship/social skills that you need to get some help on too!

Don't you realize that the fact you don't blog on time is another example of your failure to "show up"?  Do you really think you're reliable?!

Earth to Kim.  Will you ever blog again?  Oh well, I wouldn't believe what you write anyway.

I think Kim is back on the booze/drugs. From a preview of next week's episode, she was going after Ken something fierce.

Too bad she didn't have that attitude and fight towards her own career! My goodness if this woman put in the energy to her own career as she did to attack Ken, she would be working a real job right now. Sorry to say it. Tho I haven't seen the full epi so maybe it wasn't what it seemed.


At anyrate...I think Kim needs help and this show is not helping her. I hope she finds inner peace with herself and happiness. I hope she is clean. But I hope she goes from this show and perhaps her sister should too. I think they need to find something somewhere else.


Good Luck to you Kim but I don't think this show is doing you any good at all.

When they showed the clip of the dinner party where Lisa was asking you questions about maintaining your sobriety to me it looked like she was trying to be honest and connect with you. As for her always dismissing you she was trying to stop the fighting and she had just told Brandi to stop but you kept yapping in her ear. I don't want to like you but I enjoy watching you on the show.  I just wish you would get over this Lisa and Ken thing. Ken was right to say what he did to you. You were sitting right in front of him and continually talking about him and his wife right in front of him. I guess that is a change from Brandi and your sister. They tend to do it behind peoples backs. I think that Brandi has been using you. She met you at the tanning salon and other places and continually talked crap about Lisa.  It is ridiculous for Brandi to pretend that she is afraid of someone. I laughed when she told you she was afraid of Lisa. Lisa helped her find modeling jobs, had her back in the lawsuit with Adrienne and when she tried to defend Brandi last year Kyle and Faye kept telling her to stay out of it. Lisa cant win with you guys.

Kim you are a vile person.  I just saw the previews for next weeks episode.  How dare you talk to Ken that way.  I sometimes wonder if you and switched drugs for booze.  You sometimes look so high that I wonder how you stand up.  As for a come back, Please don't.  I used to like you now I have to wonder why bravo keeps you on the show.  Maybe because you are the comic relief.

I'm so happy for your sobriety and that your life seems to be back on track and in a happy place but you do not belong on reality TV, i'm not trying to be mean but you almost never attend the functions and you have nothing going on in your life that is reality TV worthy. Maybe you should look into a new sitcom.

Kim, Stop stirring the pot when it comes to Lisa. It makes you look like your trying to be relevant. She is either your friend or not. If she is stop talking behind her back. If she is not then don't see her anymore. But stop throwing her under the bus. It only makes you look bad and annoying.

Kim...you are a riot.  I LOVE it when you give commentary between scenes...you are so very funny and I don't even think you are trying to be.  You were pretty hard on Ken and Lisa about not attending your party...it just does not seem to be your nature to be so harsh.  Ken cracked and HAD to defend Lisa...if you look at the episode you will see that you came on pretty strong and would not let it go...you didn't give him much choice.  Also what he said was true!  A recovering addict HAS to be open to being humble and saying "you know what Ken...you're right."  Take responsibility love...who cares what anyone else is doing?  It will take a while for everything to even out...be humble...your sobriety hinges on it.  God bless and thanks for the laughs.  xo

It was Kyle who accused Kim of not 'having her back' the first season during the Camille drama. Which I always found interesting since Taylor and Lisa were not all that nice to Kim and Kyle never stood up for Kim with either one of them.

It doesn't seem, so far, that Kim is friends with Carlton. She didn't even know about the fight until Brandy told her about it. She just showed up to a party that they were all invited to. 

  I just hope that the sisters stay good! I find that WAY more enjoyable.

Kim you are a tool and in my opinion your not off anything, drugs or alcohol.  Your a mess stay home.

Kim, I think you are so funny and lively now and I am glad you are better. But why do you go after Lisa? Its true she has sometimes been rude to you, but cant you tell her instead of making fun of her? It just seem so immature.

Whatnow

Hey Kim, Remember how you cried and complained about Kyle not having your back? Why the heck would you cozy-up to Carlton and attend her party, hugging, kissing etc. when she has treated your sister so poorly? I am glad you are not my sister.

All of the past seasons Kim, I didn't like you. Probably because my sister is an alcoholic. And honestly, sometimes you were really mean and completely wrong. But this season.. I LOVE you sober. Okay, you are a little dingy. Let's be honest. But you are also HILARIOUS! I swear you a breath of fresh air this season. You are the comedy relief in all the drama. And I find myself going from a Kim hater...to rooting for you. Keep it up!!!!!

Lol.


Kim looked really foolish trying to mimic Lisa with her English accent and teasing about being in ...where ever it was.


All it showed was that Kim still is angry at Lisa for choosing charity work over her daughter's grad party (like her absence really mattered to her daughter anyway!).


Kim needs to get a job. Get a life of her own. She has too much time on her hands.


Please let Kim go. Her storyline was done two years ago.

Gee Kim, Where are you? Are you in Missouri for the weekend, week or month? I've been over your comeback story since it started.

Kim, it doesn't look like you can handle pressures with the acting thing but best of luck to you.  Try to be more forgiving towards the ppl you think have "wronged" you, as many of those same ppl have been very forgiving towards you, regardless of how valid you feel your reasons were or theirs weren't/  Step away from the drama & focus on your sobriety.  We want you to be healthy & happy. =)

I really like kim. She is the most down to earth of the group. Yes she is quirky but that's what I find endearing. Please blog more kim I like hearing your take on the other ladies. Don't listen to the haters they just need to put people down for the sake of it. It's kind of shocking how mean spirited some people are. The percentage of mean stuff on each ladies blog is kinda crazy. Look forward to your next post:)

@fiesta Or in the simplest of terms, it is increasingly apparent that the booze/drugs didn't cause you to act like an idiot, you actually ARE an idiot sober or drunk.

@cjl1029  One thing I've noticed about kim is that her eyes never smile.  She smiles with her stretched mouth, but not with her eyes. She seems nasty and sad.

@cjl1029  They keep her out of pity I think, she is pitiful.She had to make such a big deal out of Ken and Lisa otherwise there would be no storyline for her!

@warhwfan  Down to earth?  Kim lives in a different dimension. Kim can be funny but she lives in a world all her own.

@warhwfan  I really like Kim as well. And I agree that she is just kind of quirky. I just don't think she takes herself so serious like so many of the other ladies on these shows do. It's kind of refreshing really.

I DO wish she'd blog more and I realize it's part of being on these shows. But I would rather encourage her to do so instead of being mean it about like some are doing. 

  I think Kim has a unique role on this show and unique to all the other housewives on any of these shows. Hang in there, Kim! If they let you go... get an acting role. I know a lot of us would follow you... :)

@onesmartcookie39 @OCgirl79  Let's see...Kim making fun of Lisa for fainting, Kim's dog going to dog training, Kim at a convention reliving the days when she was acting...a long time ago, Kim going to daughter's graduation, Kim having a party for said daughter, Kim getting a tattoo, and bashing Lisa for not attending a party where she rsvp'd NO to and sent a gift for....really, how does this all equal a comeback? She's still delusional and petty as ever. 

nikgrameg

@CarlaB @onesmartcookie39 @OCgirl79 Exactly, she made such a big stink about Lisa missing her daughters party after missing countless events even after she was clean & sober including Ken and her own brother in laws birthday.

I wish her well but this is NOT the kind of show for Kim, like I said in an earlier post maybe a new sitcom would be good for her.
