Kyle Richards offered an update on her sister Kim's battle with substance abuse, saying that her fellow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's stint in rehab has her on the right track.
”She’s doing better,” Kyle told Access Hollywood while attending the Charlotte and Gwenyth Gray Foundation fundraiser in Los Angeles on Saturday. “You know, she’s taking care of herself and doing what she needs to do to get healthy.”
Kim and Kyle’s other sister, Kathy Hilton, spoke out about Kim’s path to recovery last month saying that her sister needed to address these issues. “Kim needs to learn the tools to cope when there is something that’s upsetting,” she said. “You have to learn to use the tools to not fall off the wagon.”
Following her arrest in April, Kim came clean about her struggles with addiction and entered into a rehab facility. She then briefly left that facility to attend her daughter’s wedding, and returned to a different rehab center.
Kim faces up to two-and-a-half years of prison time if convicted for three misdemeanors stemming from an incident at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She pleaded not guilty earlier this month and is due in court for a pre-trial hearing on July 16.
