Kim Richards

Kim can't believe Lisa's digs at her sister (and Brandi) or her fainting on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

on Nov 12, 20130

Lastly, when Yolanda talked about not being well, and then to see her there in the hospital, I just thought about what a struggle this has been for her. When she mentioned how her kids come over and wait to see her and to be with her, I was so touched. It’s hard for me to see her struggle, and it’s been a rough year for her. Yolanda is a tough-ass, and to see her like that it gets to me. Whatever you’re going through, you look forward to phone calls from your kids, or the times they come to visit. I related to that. I’ve prayed a lot for her, and I love that David has been there to support her through this, he’s a great guy.

See you next week!

Kim, I really hate to say anything negative about you after what you've been through and accomplished, but the episode with you and your dog was painful to watch.  You say that you don't want to contribute toward the negative stereotype of pit bulls, yet that's exactly what you've done.  You, unfortunately, are the perfect example of someone who adopts a cute puppy without regard to what their DNA requires in a pack leader, aka...owner.  Then, when speaking to the dog trainer, you discuss rehabilitating the dog, when there's NO trouble with the dog, it's you who's entirely too soft (weak) to be able to guide him.  I'm sorry to sound exactly like Cesar Millan, but that's the whole story in a nutshell.  Please, I beg of you, if you love and want to keep that dog, you need to change your energy and take charge of your home.  It's entirely a reflection of how you take charge of your destiny, and your dog will respect you for it, fall in line, along with most everything else.   PS....you're either a leader or a follower...which would you rather be?  (yes, I'm a dog trainer, Licensed Vet Tech and Dog Whisperer disciple).

Where did you find that dog trainer?  He was horrible.  He kicked your dog.  Take control of things for a change.

Kim you pegged Lisa fainting .....her big a..s hitting the floor would have been loud!!!!!! Love watching you keep up the good work. Don't listen to all the negative post Lisa probably payed them!

Kim, I think you're doing great and I really have enjoyed watching you this year.

 

About Kingsley, I've seen Cesear Milan do that knee thing with big  powerful dogs to train them about who is the dominant one.... him or the dog when they attack. Kingsley did just that.

 

What did you people want the trainer to do...........let him continue to attack him? Believe me, he in no way hurt this powerful dog.

I love you and Kyle!  You are the reason I watch the show.  Yolanda, Carlton, Lisa and Brandi are so rude - and fake!  Keep it real, sister!

So you waited for a YEAR before you realized that enormous, energetic, hyper pit bull of yours needed training?!? Wow, with such an irresponsible, selfish, neglectful attitude, you have about as much right owning that dog as you do calling other people's health issues and behavior  "fake." Not everyone is like you, Kim--manipulative and deceptive as you were all last season (claiming "sobriety" while you stumbled about incoherently, for example) and playing victim constantly, NEVER taking responsibility for your own shabby behavior. Perhaps, like many fake and delusional people, you assume others are the same way as you are; that's the only explanation for how gleefully, callously and spitefully you mocked Lisa's faint, rather than express even a moment of sympathy, concern, or compassion. Luckily, no, Kim, YOU are an unusually disingenuous, self centered person, as is your sister, and most people would never "fake" a faint in order to get out of their work, as you claim Lisa was doing. Just b/c you fake and manipulate your way through things (including this show) does NOT mean others behave or even think the same way. And as for all your devotion to Kingsley, what you need to do is think of HIS needs of YOU, first,rather than wallowing in your own needs of him (his filling your loneliness for you.) Get him a good trainer (as you should have done for him a year ago!) exercise him well, and learn to discipline him so that he is not a danger to others, and himself. It seems you are not used to putting the needs of others first, before your own, but you owe it to Kingsley to do so, starting right now.

As others have said, you need a new dog trainer who uses positive training methods. That scene literally made me cringe. Kingsley may be fun-loving and sweet now, but when you use physical punishments and scare tactics with an animal that is so powerful, it is a recipe for disaster. That dog deserves better - to be loved and to have someone who will take the time to train him positively instead of being kicked or treated roughly.

Kim i think you need a different dog trainer. One that doesn't kick your dog. Maybe you should contact the women from pitbulls and parolees

Kim, who are you to say and announce to the world that Lisa's faint was fake. It was disgusting to watch you and Kim make fun of Lisa and revel in her health issues. Then to imply to the world, she was trying to get out of work so she faked fainting. Just because that is something you and Kyle would do does not mean Lisa would do that as well. Lisa already explained what happened and has proved she is competitive and a hard worker, that is why she is so successful and well like. Also she is loyal, compassionate and kind until you cross her. Perhaps you and Kyle can learn something from Lisa and stop being so jelly bean.

As usual the Richards sisters are the meanest people in the room.  They seem to thrive on mocking people, just plain nasty women.

I believe Lisa's faint was real . We have all witnessed the Richard sisters team up and attack! The only time you and Kyle seem to get along and having a great time is when you are picking on someone. Together, you are two nasty and mean spirited individuals who enjoy other's mishap. You truly are pathetic !!

I Find it so Telling that the only time you and Kyle get along is when you

share an frienenemy.   You two have such a sick relationship its kind of sad to watch.

Also telling is how big sis Kathy mostly stays away from the both of you.

Kim - you are going to ruin Kingsley.  Do yourself (and your poor dog) and hire a trainer who will use positive training methods.

I really do not care who responds or does not respond to this post. I just really need to state this. 

 

Kim, stop attacking people. If you are truly serious about your sobriety you would be making amends with people, especially those who you have wronged. Instead, we have all watched you last year and now into this season blame others for your issues and continued depression, as well as just being mean. I think most people know someone who has done the work to become clean, I do not know what program you are on (you never seem to be working on it) but most programs require a vast amount of personal reflection and counseling, not to mention acceptance of others. Your actions and words about others (most notably in this blog) but also how you constantly like to point out your "struggle" to anyone (new acquaintances, the dog trainer, etc.), as well as your anger that pops up toward your sister, sometimes Brandi and now Lisa is very disturbing. While sobriety is a process and I hope you are taking the steps you need to, I am often left to wonder as I watch your segments if it wouldn't be better if you left the show to handle your sobriety in private. It is clear you need heal yourself, go do it.

I am shocked to see Kyle act the way she is.  She was a fav of mine, but the more I see of her, the less I like.  It was funny to see Kyle compete with Joyce when it comes to hair- the curls just don't work on Kyle though... The way Kyle treated Carlton was completely rude, whether she was frazzled or not.  I think Kyle and Kim are getting to caught up in everything, and may need to take a step back and realize what jerks they've become.  Making fun of Lisa like that was appalling.It seems your feeble attempts at remaining relevant only come at the expense of others

Nice work bravo.  You delete my post because I point out that the dog training methods were abusive?  I really hope the ASPCA gets involved in this.  That trainer is doing so much harm to animals it makes me sick.

Kim, please find a positive dog trainer to work with. 

Yaboo

Watching the abusive dog training methods made me sick to my stomach.  I am absolutely shocked that you would think it's ok and productive to treat your dog that way.  Even if you aren't educated in various training methods, someone in your circle or BRAVO should have been.  Didn't it feel wrong?  That's because it it.  Please, please, please find an all positive dog trainer.

The only "fakey" thing on the show was your mock concern for Lisa.  You have zero right to comment on anyone's life, you cannot even clearly recall half of last season due to medication problems.You were extremely rude and self centered making the dog trainer wait while you chatted away on your phone and then texted someone else. Who invited anyone into a home with a pit bull off a leash?  Wake up before someone is truly injured by your dog.

MomLeader

You're just a mean, jealous person. End of story in my book. Sobriety brings it out more. Now I understand why you drank. Self medication cuz you don't like yourself. A good shrink could have a field day with you and Kyle, soo dysfunctional and you bring out the worst in each other,  but that's been passe' since season two. So what-lots of families are dysfunctional, doesn't give them an excuse to be lousy human beings.  But together you make the perfect mean girl, bully pact. I think you wanted to get an acting career from this show, but now all you'll ever be is part of that "Richards Sisters "mean girl duo 80% loathe. No sympathy, you both earned it. Just mean inside if anyone threatens your agenda--which is constant attention--both of you. I feel bad for all of your kids. I really do. No "new cars" each year will ever fix what's been taught and nurtured within them by their Mother's actions to other people.

Hi Kim, congratulation to your sobriety, however i think you need to have a new trainer for your pitbull. Pitbulls are dangerous and you really need a good trainer for your own sake. However just as i never knowe things would not get any lower for both you Richard sisters, it just did. I mean come on Kim, you are always under the sting of your sister Kyle. You know what she is capable of saying, and how formidable she is when she is trying to take people down. By creating a facade, by sending her mouthpiece to do her dirty work, by pretending to be the victim. It is no wonder she has no real friends on the show. Your sister is a crappy and lousy friend and also a crappy sibling, truth being said. I do not think what you commented on Lisa fainting was fair to her. Both of you are not in the situation to made such unfair comments. You do not see Lisa saying how weak you are not to get back your sobriety on your own without gettin help from rehab? It would be something that you should pnderabout. Beware of your sister Kyle, she always hide her true feelings behind the plasticky smile of hers.

A "fakey"?  What are you -- five years old?  I have no idea why you are still on this show.  You are ridiculous and boring.  Please go.  And when you leave please take your nasty, back biting sister with you.

@jschott65 You are spot on......that dog is just a half a second away from attacking / mauling something or someone....

you are most definitely wrong. The "trainer" and I use that word very loosely, did not approach Kingsley properly and continued giving Kim and her son wrong advice towards Kingsley. I hope she kicks him to the curb. A complete idiot!

 Cesar  Millan never did the knee thing, ever.  Trust me, I've seen every single episode since the beginning, many over and over.  I read his books and have attended his lecture. Kim and her son were kneeing the dog back and forth like a pinball machine.  I'm sure what they were attempting was to snap the dog out of the moment and get him to focus on something other than the other dog, but clearly it wasn't working.  I have to say I found it a bit funny.  I'm sure that whole scene was edited down from well over an hour, but we only saw a couple of minutes.  I don't think the trainer is as poor as what people are commenting on.  He wouldn't be in business if he was, but the edited portion made him look incompetent.

@sunnydays13 she has no desire to put forth the effort it takes to train a pit bull terrier. She couldn't put the freaking phone down long enough to harness him as she was supposed to. She is the one that will let Kingsley down. She can't follow simple instructions......much less follow ANY rules from a bad trainer or not!!

 @CarmenS

 That was totally "cringe-worthy".  That guy entered the home with the wrong energy.  She opened the door with the wrong energy, then she petted the dog while he was being aggressive.  The entire thing made me want to jump through the television!  Tia Torres or Cesar, or I, could have done 100 times better.  She's the perfect example of someone who gets a puppy because they're cute and doesn't give a second thought as to the breed or what their DNA requires as a powerful breed owner.  God that was hard to watch!!!  The worst part was that she said she didn't want to contribute to the negative stereotype of Pits, yet...Ta Da...thanks Kim...how many hundreds of thousand of people have now assumed this type of dog is aggressive simply because of what you've shown them on television....thanks!  You've set the attempt to ban Breed Specific Legislation back at least 10 years due to this one episode.  Bravo!!!

 Wonderful and insightful comment about the eternally judgmental, combative, and  jealous behavior of Kim. I agree with you that it seems unlikely that she is making ANY kinds of amends towards others, nor  attempting improvements of herself, with her ridiculous, utterly unfounded latest attacks on and spitefulness towards Lisa. She seems just as self centered, jealous, grudge holding, and eager to bully others (with her sister) as ever. You are right she should be recovering in private.

 @Yaboo  LOL OMG!!  I think your being a bit dramatic!! I have a pit bull and I love dogs just as much as the next guy!!  I rather doubt the ASPCA will get involved!! LMAO!  they are too busy helping dogs that actually are being abused!!!

@Yaboo Kim had no clue what she was getting into before taking this big step into owning a pit bull and the fact that she needed to educate herself as well once she brought this beautiful dog home. Kim really is not cut out for Pit Bull ownership - She will learn the hard way. ( Like everything in her life).
