Kim Richards

Kim explains why she jumped into the conversation with Ken and Lisa -- and what Ken questioning her sobriety means.

on Feb 240

Happy Monday! Let's get started! I was so excited to go to Puerto Rico. I felt like I hadn't been on a vacation in years and I was ready to relax and spend time with my friends.

Arriving at the airport my heart went out to Joyce as she spoke of her father. I don't know if I would have been able to pull it together the way she did. However I know everyone reacts to pain differently and hers was to keep going.

Puerto Rico is so lovely! Waking up in the morning and looking out at
the ocean was amazing! The beach was so pretty and everyone was off to
having a great time -- until Yolanda and Lisa went to have a talk.

One thing led to another and the next thing I know Brandi and I are sitting there and she tells me that when that when she was leaving for Palm Springs, Lisa had put the tabloid in her bag and told her she had to bring it. I was so upset hearing about this! I have watched my sister cry over and over about this, and it has also caused a lot of stress for her kids. It is all mean people and lies! I couldn't believe that Lisa would do this! If I hadn't heard it from Brandi I would have never believed it. So I told her, "You need to tell my sister!" However, Brandi wanted to wait until the time was right. But things had escalated and she needed to tell her now, so she did. Once again having to see that hurt look in my sisters face broke my heart. She wants to believe Lisa is her friend so much but it's just not the case and Lisa continues to let her down. Maurice had no idea what was going on so I filled him in on what I had heard.

I really think Lisa lacks empathy.  I say this because of the Brandi-Scheana incident.  I think Lisa is a very nice person as are you.  But, in my opinion she isn't really manipulative just insensitive to the actual pain others feel.

Kim, I thought it was nice of you to apologize to Ken, but unrealistic to think he would say anything more than a thank you.  He acknowledged you.  He was hurt by your words just like you have been by others, including your sis.  I hope you take what he said and don't make more of it...but you did.  Lisa and Ken can't do anything right with you.  They rsvp'ed to your graduation barbecue, and sent a gift.  That's why you have rsvp on the invitation.  They did go out of town and even if they got home earlier than they thought they had already said they weren't coming.  Why do you keep harassing them?  It's embarrassing to watch you demean yourself in this way.  They didn't even bring up their daughter's wedding till you wouldn't let it go.  You can't take a hint.  I wouldn't want to come either.  You have never been close to them; at least I haven't seen it on the show.  If I were in your shoes I'd let anyone off the hook for not showing up for anything right now.  You admit you weren't on point for quite a while.  Give it a rest; please!

This is something I do not understand about graduation parties.  Honestly, graduating from high school is not that big of deal any more.  The only reason for graduation parties is to get money and presents for your kid.  

On the other hand, you not attending Pandora's wedding is an entirely different situation.  A wedding is a huge step in someone's life...graduating from high school, not so much.

Get over it!

Your apology to Ken was so fake.  You did not have a sincere intention and only did it to try to make yourself look better.  You have a lot of anger and I see you are going to bring it out at the reunion.  Don't you ever learn.  How do you think your daughters will feel when they see your ugly side on TV.  You are such a joke.

Kim get over it already! You missed a lot of functions Lisa and Ken missed one, they told you they weren't coming  and sent a gift yet that's not good enough for you. They did nothing to you but yet you believe someone who called you a crack head really?

Go Kim!! Ken was a jerk to you. Lisa lied and was being called out on it and couldn't handle it. I watched them dismiss you more than once this year and its just gross. Like they are so much better than everyone else. Ken needs to let his wife fight her own battles. Lies always catch up to you eventually.

Kim,

To make amends is not saying you are sorry but to RIGHT the wrong. Walking in sobriety is not justifying one's position. Confessing the sin others never made me well. Lookup the spiritual axiom....no matter what the cause there is something wrong with me.

I have been in your corner but the foul abuse that came out of your mouth was hard to watch...

Kim, perhaps you need tech the episode. You girls were watering at the mouth to attack Lisa and I would  g to Brandi before I said a word to anyone else  woduld be why the he'll word you have bought the tabloids in the first place. That would have struck me first and the hardest. Who was she reading them for her own knowledge. I hope that you are smarter than that Kim but who knows. Second if you would have spoken to my husband lime that you would have been kicked off your chair. Who made you so self righteous to suddenly be the judge and Jury against Lisa when Brandi couldn't even look anyone in the eyes as she is  making the accusation.  Ken asked if you had been drinking based on your behavior but only to his wife not a table full of people as you completely disrespected him and his wife. Any other husband wife who's wife was attacked lime that would have been less than a man in my eyes if he did not do the same thing that Ken did. None the less even after that Lisa still had enough empathy inside her for you that she shut Ken right down the no Ute he aid that. I do want to know Kim how do you feel now that Brandi's good friend Carlton discredited Brandi's story then Yolanda. Hmmm you would really need to be an incredibly blinded person if you still believe that Lisa would have the motive, time or energy  between several restaurants two shows and her amazing children. Please tell me what she has to gain by getting involved in such a mess. I can tell you if you have not gotten it yet. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I THINK YOU NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON YOUR BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER AND ALL THE AMAZING THINGS THAT YOU HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN THIS STAGE OF HER LIFE AND GET SOME CONSTRUCTIVE POSATIVE HOBBIES AND STAY OUT OF BRANDI'S DESTRUCTIVE PATH OF NEGATIVE ENERGY. DO NOT FORGET THAT YOU WERE ONCE ON THE RECEIVING END OF HER BULL CRAP.

Wow. I was a fan and hoping for the best in your sobriety.It was so obvious to the vewers how high and mixed up you were. Then came sobriety, congradulations.

Now I want to say, the way you went off on Ken was ugly and uncalled for. What kind of man would leave his wife e to fight off a bunch of blood thristy sharks on her own?  You were MEAN. Why do you believe Brandi over Lisa? I don't she is mean and messed up too.

There is no defense for you. You are a bitter, aging 60s Tv star. And you seriously act like a mental patient or a junkie. Get off the show and get a life. People are mean about you, because of you!

"Lisas reaction seems fishy to me"!!! MMmm I really don't think YOU are one to comment on the whys or wherefores of ANYONES behaviour, all you are is a garbbled incoherent MESS!!! My only hope is that your kids have the good sense to be embarrassed by you, at least that would show you have done SOMETHING right!!!

We're so tired of hearing and seeing you, please retire from the show.  You are such a mean girl now.

oh man, you are cra cra.  SO UNBELIEVABLY rude to Ken and Lisa. Who, BTW, RSVP'd to a back yard picnic, AND SENT A GIFT- yet you still berate them publicly - and If I were Ken, I would have thrown your past behavior in your face too... you are in no position to chastise anyone.  at all.  pull yourself together and run along to the next Former Stars Convention.

How would you feel if, when you and Brandi just started to forgive each other, someone swept in and whispered in your ear, "Kim, how can you be friends with her?  Don't you remember all those horrible things she said?" and then went ahead and listed all those things.  That's exactly what Brandi did to your sister, and your sister fell for it, hook line and sinker.  


I usually like you, and respect your past work as a child actor, but you need to start thinking for yourself.

I agree with Momdee11. Ken has every right to speak up, just because you are a woman doesn't mean that he doesn't have a right to speak his mind or protect his wife. He called you out on a few things this season and as hurtful as it might have been, it was the truth. You should let it go and reconcile.

You need to apologize to Ken and Lisa. You need to watch the show and see how stupid you sound. Girl many shows you never showed up for parties, get togethers ect. and you fuss with Ken and Lisa for not showing up at your daughters graduation party. They RSVP and said they could not make it. Wow.... Please calm down.

Kim, I don't blame you for going off on Ken!  He said some very mean remarks to you and he and Lisa like to belittle and talk down to you at every turn!  I don't know how you took it for so long!  I don't like Brandi but I believe her about Lisa b/c Lisa is so not a friend to Kyle.  Kyle should stop asking her about the magazine incident b/c she has her answer...  Lisa would not have run away if she wasn't guilty!  She is not Kyle's friend and has proven that over and over again.

Kim, did you miss the part about gossip being character assassination? If you didn't spout off about being in 'recovery' I'd have absolutely no idea you were. Your actions speak the opposite, so don't act all noble about making a half hearted apology...we strive to be an example if we're in recovery, and you'd best be served to get off the TV and work on yourself.

All I could think of is how proud your daughter must be that her mother yelled at Ken and attacked Lisa over graduation  Remember it is not what you say but what you do in life that counts

What you could and should have said/done when this all hit the fan is..... Stop it!  Stop, this isn't the place or the time or anyone else's business but Lisa's and Kyles'!  You were so wrong!

Why is Kim on this show?  Please Bravo...it is painful and uncomfortable to watch her.

Lisa's reaction, yes quite odd.  She is no Bobby Fisher…Fisher would have anticipated an aggressive  move.  As far as Brandi-she is not an innocent lamb. No one can force you to say something you do not want to say.

Rich people and their gossip…….poor poor Lisa…….

Kim's poor daughter...she is clearly not going to fit in that room...hopefully she will donate all those things she doesn't need. Did they not visit the college/dorms before hand?

You need to apologize to Ken and Lisa.

Keep your nose out of it. 

I was beginning to like you until you started attacking Ken and Lisa.

They run charities and business's they sent a gift for your daughter for her graduation and explained PRIOR they would not be attending.

Then you jump on the attack wagon just to be a part of the drama in Puerto Rico 

Now I am seeing you are caddy and part of mob mentality.

Why didt you not ask why Brandi had the tabloids

Goodness you really are a drama queen. All of sudden you are Brandis friend. Nothing but a hypocrite. How dare you yell at Ken. You weren't there. You owe Ken and Lisa both an apology.

Kim, you have become very self-righteous and the true "mean girl" of the group. What a disappointment!!!

Kim, go away! You're lucky these people even gave you a second chance. You were pretty horrible to everyone. When someone sends "regrets" you can't be made at them!!! Unlike YOU, they have a business to run and a job to do. Get over it!

@twiljunk Way to destroy your career and reputation. Wow. For a reality TV show , you and your nutty sister have shamed your family. Dumb, vapid, irrelevant.

I dia agree... If everyone ganged up on me like that, I would have said screw all of you and just left. Since Kyle got an answer at the beach and Yolanda said she spoke to Lisa before dinner the only one left was Brandi that needed to "clear the air" she could have done it one on one, either before dinner or after. There's no reason Kim should have even got into it. Kim seems like she has mental issues, even when she is doing her side interviews, she repeats the same thing over and over. Yes Kens remarks were rude, but she was very rude also. She seems out in left field. Luck to Kim and being sober. I'm glad she has stuck to it. But she is still a mean girl!!!

@RileyRoo

She is a painful wreck to watch.  I tune out when the segments about Kim are on the show.  I don't enjoy them at all; sorry.

@ChristyLC Plus they are failing to mention that the party was set for earlier in the day when Lisa and Ken were still out of state. Kim changed the day before because her sister wouldn't let them have it there. Ken and Lisa wouldn't have known about the change of time and they had already RSVP'd. When I RSVP to a party that I cannot attend I don't give it another thought.

@Barbarajean She really does.  I don't why no one is even mentioning her screaming at Ken at the table...

@getalife-really  I think she has a serious case of stunted growth.  She may forever be stuck in junior-high-school-mean-girl-hell.  She smiles not with her eyes but with her unattended mouth.

@sherry.kidd2 Exactly! If she was sitting next to me at a dinner party constantly yapping in my ear I would eventually be dismissive to her too.

@sherry.kidd2 "Ganged up on"...yes Lisa and Ken were...treated like trailer trash...I don't blame them one bit for getting on a plane and flying back to LAX......post haste....no excuses for the rest of those involved in this "massacre" ...shame on the lot of them.
