Kim Richards

But Kim knows she would take it back if she could, and she clears up that vibrator thing (it was a gift!).

on Dec 11, 20130

Here we are. . .another week to be grateful for! It's fun to see how everyone prepared for the trip to Palm Springs! For me, of course, it was more fun to hang out with my girl! Kimberly, as you know, was getting ready to leave for college so I picked a fun travel shop that would have fun stuff for my trip as well as for her departure! Oh my gosh! As you can see we always have fun together. Where ever we go, whatever we do, we have a good time. Where on earth would she have learned about what a vibrator was!?! Well she sure told me, didn't she? My drawer? It was a gift. I've never even used it! Thankfully, we found some cute things aside from the vibrating toothbrushes!

It was nice to see Joyce getting ready in her beautiful closet. I know how excited she was for this trip. She's such a girly girl!

Seeing Kyle and Carlton. . .that looked rough! When my sister walked in to store and the lady told how great her butt looked she looked so embarrassed. (It did look good though.) However, she didn't want her to point it out. I know she and Carlton have their differences, but at this point looks to me Kyle was unaware of this! I have no problem and even like Carlton, but I feel like her comments and faces behind my sisters back were not needed.

So time to go. . . yes I brought some luggage and even my juicer! Where ever I go I want to feel at home. That means I need all of my belongings. I feel today it's part of what keeps me feeling good and healthy! Kyle, Joyce, and I had fun the whole way down. We were laughing and goofing off. Getting ready for a girls' weekend! When we arrived the house was so beautiful! I just love the peacefulness of the desert! The way the house was built into the rocks was so cool.

Once we got settled in our rooms we headed straight to the pool. Right off the bat it just didn't feel right, and there was a lot of tension. The push for Joyce to take her sundress off! Look, in my opinion Joyce invited us all down to have a good time and to do whatever we wanted in a beautiful home. She had a chef to prepare nice dinners and planned activities, but the rest should be up to us. If you want to swim, then swim. If you want to take a walk, then take a walk. There should be no rules except to just come have a good time. I have hosted many trips in my life and just because it is my trip, doesn't mean I have to babysit. For instance, when I took my friends to Hawaii once, some people wanted to lie out while others wanted to shop or go marlin fishing. You can't be with everyone at the same time. I thought it was a little ridiculous for Yolanda to tell Joyce how to handle herself. I mean grow up!

Your beautiful dog doesn't need a trainer.  YOU do, you moron.  Get a pet rock  I hate seeing clueless pet owners!

Lisa has been dismissive to you. I don't like it and I can say I see it. I also think she orchestrated the treatment of Joyce. That Brandi was a pawn trying to please Lisa.  Yo is a follower and is likely sick just as she says.  I can't understand why she is always saying to the ones she doesn't like... You have to earn friendship... What did Carl do so instantly to earn it???  Why doesn't she earn all her guest trust and friendship by drawing a heart on every name card...  Lisa is the leader of the opposing club, she determines who will be included or not, probably very cleverly done too.  I think she was trying to write off Joyce.  Maybe she is jealous of her youth and beauty.  I think you are very real and funny this season.  I am proud to see you come through to where you are.  Bravo

I thought the party was for your daughter.  Do you really think she cared if a woman she barely knows, who is as old as her mother showed up. I mean she got the present.  How about you teach her to write a thank you note?   Also the way you and Kyle acted in that salon made me see the family resemblance with your niece Paris.

Where's the blog Kim? Are you embarrassed by your childish behavior? You shouldn't lecture anyone on proper behavior because you clearly don't know what it is even when you are sober.

If I have to hear you say "that's not nice"  "that hurt my feelings" I am going to escape to witch mountain. Grow up!  You, for years, have been rude and out of line so get over yourself.

I find you SO annoying to watch.  You act like a child when you ask Lisa why she didn't go to your daughters graduation.  When someone tells you they can't make it....drop it.  Maybe it's so you can have air time because there's nothing else for you to talk about.

As a long time RHO (all of them) watcher,  I am not surprised that you have not bothered to blog since mid December.  You tend to flake on most of your obligations.  You were extremely RUDE to Lisa about not attending your party.  She RSVP'd that she would not attend.  She did not attend and does NOT owe you an explanation.  then for you to continue with "everyone was there....everyone but you."  was passive/aggressive.  I was thinking to myself, "what about all the times Kim has missed events for (fill in the blank) reason(s)?"  Ken said it to defend his wife and to shut you up.  THANK YOU, KEN!  The 12 steps do not include using your addiction as a get out of jail free card whenever you are called on bad behavior.

Kim-  Hope you will read this even though you haven't posted any new blogs in quite a while, but here are my comments for the latest episode.  How is it that you can attack Lisa (and Ken), even calling them liars, for not showing up to your daughter's party even though they sent their RSVP to you saying they wouldn't be able to make it?  They even sent her a gift from Tiffany's?  And, you were still rude to them.  So what if they were seen eating at SUR, it's none of your, or your hairstylist's business.  Ken was not being rude and what he said was not "uncalled for", he told the truth, you have missed many things since your sobriety, and no one questions you about it.  This new voice that you seem to have acquired is an angry, rude, and childish one.  As far as your dog situation, I am astonished and shocked that you own a pitbull.  They need to be with a responsible owner and in my opinion, you are not one, you can barely take care of yourself.

" What Does Kim Richards Love" I watch that video a lot. I suffer from depression and have never watched a whole lot of TV let alone reality shows, but I am in a situation where I only have my laptop and tv. Kim, you are so funny and so uplifting. You make me laugh. I haven't laughed in so long. God I sure hope you stay on the show. You are a breath of fresh air. Keep cracking me up. I need it.

You are showing that your true self has more class and more "real-ness" than anyone on the dream team, in fact you have more of that than any of them combined

Kim,

 

Congrats on your sobriety. :)  I can relate to the whole empty nest thing that you're going through lately, it's very painful.  Combine that with the emotions that arise from being sober and it's easy to feel like a train wreck.  I see your growth on the show and I love watching you blossom.

How disappointing that you do not blog like every other lady in the franchise. If you can't take the heat you should leave the show.

If blogging is too hard, maybe you should leave the show. Why do I have a feeling you will be blogging next week...it looks like you have another problem with Lisa so you will probably want to state your case over and over because she is the devil this season. You only speak up this season when you want to blame Lisa for something. Your daughter looked absolutely mortified when you were rolling around on the ground during the dog's training session. With you as an owner, everyone around that poor dog is in danger. Grow up.

I'm going to start taking bets on Kingsley biting a person or getting in a dog fight while Kim or one of her family members takes him for a walk. He's going to get away from them because she cant handle that kind of dog. That dog was never socialized. She obviously let it do whatever it wanted. When looking for a dog think about your life style and age. Kim you obviously have no idea what kind of dog you have which is sad for you and the dog. You with a pit that big out of control is an accident waiting to happen. You have done no favors for yourself or the dog. Cause if it we're me it's going to bite. I'll have it put down and I'd sue you. I'd keep that trainer and hire a big guy who understands that kind of dog to get it out for walks everyday. I love all dogs. There are no bad dogs just owners. I don't think your bad you obviously love him but giggling at him like he's this silly submissive dog is embarrassing. My dad is a vet and has put a couple of pits down for attracting their owners. Don't act so dumb, it's not cute. You're like 56 at least. I live in LA I've seen you and the movies you were in when you were little. I lived them but 50 please you and your sister oh brother .

Kim! You're looking so wonderful, happy and beautiful!  Lately I think you come out with some of the most intelligent comments about healthy interpersonal approaches and interaction - too bad it often seems to go right over the heads of the rest of the other housewives, as they seem to prefer feeding off their own egos and dramas (Lisa, Yolanda, Brandi, & Carlton in particular). And good for you that you call Lisa out and stuck up for yourself! Including with the other women at the table too. Seriously sometimes I don't get why and how people let Lisa get away with her passive aggressing crap; Yolanda with holier than thou preaching; and Carlton with the nonsense she proudly uses to identify her (sex toys and crosses...pleezze); Brandi needs something and it's not another drink. But you keep on groovin' girl, you look.radiant - and don't let anyone break your stride, especially no one from the bunch of wackadoodles!

Kim, you need to know that I am so impressed with your positive thinking and your ability to reason things ou in a logical, supportive manner. I see that some of the housewives tend to be dismissive of you (Yolanda, Lisa). Try not to spend too much time calling Lisa on this dismissive behavior. She is not going to change unless she feels the need to change. Stay honest and positive. You come across as very strong, positive, and caring. So far, you come out as I would hope most women would want to be viewed on national television. Enjoy your sobriety, your family, and your dog.

I really think your comments here are SPOT on.  You tell it how it is.  Lisa's laughing at the 'fat pig' comment was vile.  I actually couldn't believe what I was seeing.  Yolanda is just a desperate follower and puppet of Brandi - she's embarrassing.  GREAT BLOG KIM!!

Lisa has always had your back, even when Kyle was being horribly mean and dismissive to you.  She is trying to help you not seem so ditzy and lost.  Turning on her the way you have just shows that Kyle has finally gotten to you,  So sad, you just seem to bumble from one place to the next.

Just another reminder on what a horrible person you are.  Lisa was being good lookin' out for you.  No one wants to watch you urinate, or pray for that matter.  When were you last @ church? you sanctimonious creep.  The embarassment having you as a mother would be so atrocoius, I can not fathom.  You need to leave the show. asap

Kim, you make my stomach turn and you are a complete TRAINWRECK!  go back to rehab, and get off the scripts, just cause they are prescribed by your fancy doctor, it doesn't mean that you are clean.  So stop disrespecting those of us that are.

You do not want to be friends with Carlton, she is not the type of person you need in your life. Joyce yes but, Carlton, Brandi...no way. You appear to be very sensitive and folks tike these 2 will eat you up. As for Lisa, she is dismissive of everybody at times, that is her personality. I think she is as deep as a puddle. Money and fame...that is her game.

You are the first person to pray on the show. Good for you. A shame the mean girls made fun of if but, God smiled on you..Carlton doesn't believe in God so I can understand her not getting you.

 

Be strong, call on God...

Kyle, keep up the good work and do not let anyone say or do anything to alter your journey. Lisa does have a superior attitude that appears to be getting worse as the years progress. What is success? it is about your own sense of self, kindness to others, generosity, spirituality and much more. It is not about things, restaurants etc. Keep going and steer clear of the women who want to bring you down. I am proud of you.

Kim, congrats on your sobriety but are you ever going to grow up?  Your opening statement is so annoying -- all about ME, ME, ME!!  Hey, the whole world is not waiting on you with baited breath.  Start acting like a grown-up instead of a cutsie child-star, jeez!!

It pissed me off when Lisa was laughing at you for praying near a trashcan! Prayer is always welcome-- even if you are on the toilet for cryin' out loud!!

 

I agree with you that as a host you don't have to 'babysit' your guests and run yourself ragged trying to do so!:)

 

XO Have a lovely holiday!

Kim, as usual, you're keeping it real, and I love you for that! This season, you definitely seem like you have found your element with being happy and at peace! Tell it like it is! <3

Your comments about Lisa and Yolanda are spot-on! They try to claim they are classy and fair, but they are quite the opposite.

As for your random praying...That was off, but you know what, when you need and want to pray, do it! Don't let anyone make you feel weird for doing it! 

Love you, Kim! <3

@southernbelle25 "The 12 steps do not include using your addiction as a get out of jail free card"  You put my thoughts into words, southernbelle25, great comment. Kim strikes me as the former child star who still assumes the lights & cameras are solely on her. She has a serious case of arrested development.This latest episode regarding her daughter's party and the Vanderpumps was ridiculous and awkward. Seriously, can anyone make sense of getting so heated up over a not particularly close friend for not attending their daughter's graduation party? Odd and forced behavior from Kim and I enjoyed watching Ken handle it.

 Being on a reality show that requires you to blog and allows viewers to leave comments means that you may get some less than friendly comments...Kim put herself in this spot and her behavior often warrants honest and candid  comments. Your comment, on the other hand, was rude. If it makes you sick, don't participate.

Kim, you're beautiful soul is shining & I couldn't be happier for you! Remember to keep it simple one day at a time! Thank you again for sharing your journey with us! God bless you & yours, and may 2014 prove to be the most amazing year of your life!!!

 @annie17352 Lisa has restaurants to EARN MONEY. Kim gets thousands each moth from ex-husbands -- Lisa is not more materialistic because she earns a living. Kim has alimony and her (entirely undeserved) salary from this show. She's hardly in a position to judge other people's materialism.

@JuliefromTexas prayer is fine, but not as a means of getting attention. People don't just drop and pray at random unless you are just trying to get yourself attention. The Bible even speaks about this.
