Kim's Magic Butterfly

Kim shares why Kimberly's prom was so special and discusses Taylor's singing voice.

By Kim Richards

Here we are week 3 of RHOBH! Kimberly prom has been so much fun to prepare for! When she was little I dressed her, fed her, and did her hair everyday knowing one day she would do these things for herself. So when Kimberly asked me to help her find her dress and be a part of this experience I was more than excited

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

When Kasey arrived I gave my input and then stepped back, allowing Kimberly her time as young lady preparing for prom, while I worked on the chicken salad and things and things and things (Haha).

Kimberly and I really enjoyed each other through this time. We were already close, but this was definitely a bonding experience! The most memorable moment: well of course when my beautiful daughter walked into the room all dressed! That face! That smile! I was speechless! My special name for Kimberly is "Magic Butterfly." When I look at her, I am sure she has wings. She is an angel.

She had a great time at the prom! Kimberly called from the limo! (Or did I call) either way she was already having fun! She and all her friend got home around 1 am. The pool was heated. They had fruit, chicken salad, and I baked some goodies. It was a success, but the best part of all was when Kimberly came in, laid down next to me, and gave me a kiss and said "Thank you for making this so special for me. I love you Mommy" I held her arms and whispered, "Thank you God." It's moments like that I will never forget. I hope she won't either!

OMG! So funny watching Kyle and Alexia in the car. It brought back soooo many memories for me as I have taught all four of mine, another bonding experience. Patience was also a number one requirement, as was humor. We laughed a lot as I saw Kyle and Alexia did as well (the best way to get thru those "Oops I hit the curb!" moments). Haha.

It was nice to ride out to Yolanda's with Paul and Adrienne, but I could feel right from the get go tensions were high and the night could have been in trouble

I love that every time I saw Kyle she was obsessing over Camille's stalking psycho butler! When in reality he's just the local caterer in Malibu! Got to love my sister! Right? Then there was Lisa, Adrienne, and Paul. While there was no arguing, the tension was apparent throughout the night.

Taylor was talking about Brandi which I don’t think anybody wanted to hear. Let's not forget the sing-a-long! Taylor, Kyle, and Adrienne all singing “Amazing Grace,” and learning the ways at The Foster house! David's words are not a stranger to me. Through his music he has been part of my childhood, relationships, breakups, weddings, and births of my children etc. He has been a part of my life long before tonight! When David started playing "Danny Boy," I could see my Mom standing by the piano singing that song! That was a big memory growing up! (It was her favorite song.) Too bad Taylor wasn't enjoying it! I think she’s upset because maybe she really does want to make an album!


Note: For those of you who are curious about Amma, The Hugging Saint, she embraces you and fills you love! Gives a sense of comfort! I had the opportunity to Meet her down by LAX with my sister Kathy a few years ago. It was a very powerful and emotional experience. She gave me a set of beads that when I feel I need extra comforting I will hold. I felt it would be a good day for Kimberly to hold them to give her extra love on her special day!

Till next week! Be safe, I hope you enjoyed!
