Kim Reacts to Lisa's "Lie"

Kim Richards addresses Lisa's excuse, Carlton's quest for alcohol, and your thoughts on Kingsley's dog training.

This is such a fun episode for me getting to look back and relive Kimberly's graduation. It was such an amazing experience. For all you mommies out there that are getting ready to go through this. . .It is SOOO exciting and not as scary as it may seem. I was so excited to plan Kimberly's graduation party and to honor her for all her hard work. She has always been a perfect daughter and student. I wanted her to have a beautiful night and one that she would always remember as she moves forward in her life.

Having my sister be a part of this experience was also amazing. We all cherish the moments we have as sisters with our children. As you can see, my sister and I always have fun when we are together -- and our girls love to watch their mommies have a good time and laugh, too. They get such a kick out of us! We have our own lingo and special words for everything. Getting a bikini wax is well.  . .not what most people call it. When she laid down on the table is when the fun really began.

I've never seen a waxer with a vibrator. . .Eww! Kyle, in true Kyle-fashion, acted like she had never seen one before. Then when Kyle handed it to me all I kept thinking was, "God only knows where there thing has been!" GROSS! It was a truly comical experience. I love the relationship I have with my sister today. It's just like when we were little again. We laugh, play, talk, and cry. We have each other's backs and listen to each other when we need it the most. These are things I do not take for granted today. I love her so much and will do whatever I need to keep our relationship healthy and right.

Prepping for Kimberly’s party was a lot of work. I wanted it to be perfect. We had to change the date and the theme at the last minute. So here I was the day of, and of course everything was chaotic. But I said NOTHING would ruin this day for Kimberly or my family -- and the night went on to be a huge success. I only invited a small group of only our closest friends and family. This was really an intimate night honoring my daughter for all her accomplishments and saying goodbye before she left the next day. I still can barely write this without crying. I remember not knowing what was going to happen the next day and as a Mom it was scary. It was a challenge to keep a smile on my face and live in the moment. I just wanted this night to be perfect and it was.

All of her sisters, brother, her mommy, daddy, stepmom, my sister Kyle, her cousins and close friends were there. It was truly a night to remember! Kimberly's dad and I could not have been more proud. I am so grateful for the great relationship we have and that we could honor our daughter together. It was a night full of fun and dancing.

However, I was a bit surprised when Carlton asked for alcohol and I felt a little on the spot. When she and the bartender came to me I said, "I don’t keep alcohol in my house," especially since it was a party for Kimberly who is underage I didn’t think people would be expecting it. I ended up asking him if someone could go get some for her.

I also felt bad that Brandi got sick! But all-in-all, I am so glad that they all made it out to support Kimberly and me on such a special day. All the people that came are so special to me and have played a part of Kimberly and my lives. What a beautiful night for my beautiful daughter! Kimberly and I have such a unique relationship -- she is not only my daughter but my best friend. We do everything together from workout to make dinner together. She has even slept with me since she was a baby. . .guilty! We talk about everything, and she a perfect girl and one of my closest friends. I couldn't imagine what life would be like without her right next to me all time! This was about to be the biggest change of my life!

When I invited everyone, most people received evites and there were just a handful that I happened to invite myself -- Lisa was one of those people. I really was on the fence with who I wanted there. I had to consider the limited space and I did not want any problems or fighting on this very special night. When I invited Lisa I said,"I am only having special people and would really like you and Ken to come!" She said, "I might be out of town but if I am here darling I will be there!" and then gave me hug! I haven't had a lot of parties or events like the other girls. For a long time I wasn't in a good place to do so. So now I am so happy to be where I am today and love to entertain and make my house look pretty. It makes me feel so proud!

Having said that, Lisa has never come to anything I have invited her too. Kimberly has always really liked Ken and wanted them there. When I went to Lisa and Ken’s to drop off dresses for the charity, I was in a very good mood. I gave her the dresses and we talked for a little. When I mentioned Kimberly's graduation to her she told me she had been in Wisconsin all weekend I had to laugh because my hairdresser saw her that night having dinner at SUR.

She got caught. At this point in my life I really don't have time for petty things like this nor do I really care. I'm turning 50 this year and have so much to be grateful, for like my children and my daughter's engagement. As for Ken jumping on me the way that he did. . .He was right I have missed some parties, but I also missed out on life. These are things that I regret and have apologized for since I have been sober. No one knows, unless you have walked in someone else's shoes, what it feels like to dislike yourself so much or to feel like you can't go on another day. Or to think that today might be the day that I am going to change. Wanting to change but knowing how. It is a horrible feeling. I think Ken's comment was unnecessary, and I have forgiven myself a lot for the past. I feel terrible about some of the things I missed or things I did. However, in order for me to not pick up a drink today I have had to realize that the past is the past! And today I love myself and my life, my children, sisters, family and of course Kingsley! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!

As for some of what I need to catch up on. . .I love Kingsley so much! He has become my best friend. I know you all have seen what a great Boy he is. The training was going well, but David said he needed to be with other dogs and socialize. When I heard this I thought I would go crazy a whole week without him. As we watched him drive away I started to cry and it nearly broke my heart. I didn't know how to sleep without my cuddle bug! The week was rough I cannot lie. However, David sent us pictures and videos to see Kingsley’s progress. Chad also helped me through the process and reminded me how strong I am.

When Kingsley came home we decided we would take what worked for our family and Kingsley and thanked David very much for his time! I would also like to add that I know some of you had great concern for the muzzle that Kingsley wore. I would like to say that was something Kingsley only wore a couple of times at the trainer's request. I do not even own one. But during training that is what he felt we needed for the safety of everyone, and I followed the rules to make sure everyone was safe, including my Kingsley. The last thing I would want is for someone to get hurt and for Kingsley to get blamed. Thank you all for your thoughts on this matter.

The other thing I know you all got to see was when I went to Long Beach Grand Prix and got to ride in my friend’s car. I have always been a thrill seeker. I spent many years sitting on the edge of race tracks -- motocross, speedway, cars, and boat races! I have been on the sidelines. I have been on the tracks. And I have been in the water. However, this is something I have not done for so many years and I loved every minute of it. I have wanted to do the Bob Durant racing school since I was 17 years old. When my friend Harrison invited me to Long Beach to ride in his car, I was so excited. It came at a perfect time. All of my kids came too. Unfortunately the race car that I was supposed to drive in that day had mechanical problems earlier so I couldn’t drive the car, but I did get to be a passenger in a Bob Durant car. Can you believe it?!? That was just the beginning of my racing. Soon I will be out on the Bob Durant Racing Track! I hope to get my license and ride with the big boys! All my children are living their own lives and it's time for me to live mine. I am so grateful to my children, my family and to you. This is such an exciting time.

Thank you for patience on my blog entries. Sometimes these blogs overwhelm me and it is difficult to relive some things. My sobriety comes first, my family and Kingsley come second, and then you are next.

XO Talk to you next week

Kim: My Heart Felt So Big

Kim discusses her daughter's wedding and her special relationship with Monty.

The countdown...Less than 10 days before Christmas! I hope you are almost ready for the holiday!

This is an exciting episode for me as I share with you all a peek into one of the most important days of our lives: The day my Brookie married the man of her dreams. Brooke and Thayer have known each other since birth, it's fate...God...love... I am truly blessed!


Kyle and Maurice's trip to Mallorca looked absolutely amazing! It looked like everybody had a great time. Yolanda always keeps her high. These situations put things into perspective for us. We love our children so much! We give me them everything inside us to make them strong young people, and at the end of the day, we can only hope that they are going to make the right choices.

It was cute watching Eileen go over her dialogue with her niece. It reminded me of my sisters and me. I was very happy to see that Lisa V. got her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame! How exciting to see all her fans dressed in pink! She looked so pretty, and Ken couldn't have looked prouder. Congrats to Lisa V., Ken and Giggy!

One of my favorites couples is David and Yolanda. Listening to the two of them, well I just love them together and the team that they make! They support and balance each other so perfectly, and that is also what makes them such great parents!
Oh Brandi and her podcast! Filtered and unfiltered, she's so damn funny! All day long!

I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

Kim Richards

You all officially get to meet Monty! I met Monty when I was 19, on a blind date. Go figure! I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

We were married for a brief time, but our hearts never parted! Giving birth to our daughter, we shared a bond, but our friendship has always been so deep. We have always made being parents to our daughter a priority. Monty has always been kind of a wanderer but has stayed at my home on and off over the last 15 years. In June, Monty was diagnosed with lung cancer, and I decided it was time for Monty to move in for good. He moved in full time with me, and I fixed a room where he is very comfortable and we all feel very good knowing Monty is where he needs to be and he is in good, loving hands! As you can see, Monty and I have a great friendship! We really do enjoy each other's company, and I can't imagine my life without him. So we are not thinking that way! Positive thoughts only!

Brooke and Thayer got engaged Christmas morning 2013. One of the most exciting phone calls and Christmases ever! Their plan was a destination beach wedding in 2015, however, our plans took a shift when we found out about Monty. Of course the most important thing right then was that Brooke could have her father walk her down the aisle, and that Monty would be strong enough! Brooke knew exactly what she wanted. She and I worked non-stop with an amazing team of people! From Mark Zunino designing the most amazing dress, Petals by David flying in the most Gorgeous Flowers, Glen our caterer, and our fantastic coordinator Vanessa, we were able to do just that.


Brooke and Thayer wed on August 2, 2014. It was only our family. A very intimate, private ceremony! The most magical and special evening . I wish I could tell you what I was thinking, the flashbacks to so many memories. Brooke was radiating with joy! More joy than I had ever seen come from that little face! She looked stunning! I, too, was overwhelmed with joy. I was so grateful to see her arm and arm with her dad, walking down the aisle, to join her soon-to-be husband. When she got to Thayer, each second became more and more intense! Then she looked over and at me and mouthed the words, "I love you." I thought I was going to fall out of my chair! My heart felt so big! 


The vows, the kiss, and then they were married!

Thank you for sharing this amazing, magical, and special moment with us!

xo,
Kim
