Real Housewife Kim Richards Insists She Is NOT An Alcoholic, Friends Reportedly Stage An Intervention

kim richards drinking problem

First crystal meth accusations, now alcohol! We hope Kim is all right!

According to a new report, friends of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Kim Richards staged an intervention to address her problem with alcohol.

Here's what Kim had to say when she was reportedly confronted by her worried friends:

"I'm not an alcoholic, I'm just a serious social drinker."

Despite Kim's claims that she's fine, a source close to her is saying that it's just not true:

"Kim drinks daily and doesn't recognize that she has serious a problem."

Whether or not she chooses to identify herself as an alcoholic, it's quite clear that Kim needs to reassess her drinking habits, especially if it's affecting the people close to her.

What do U think? Does Kim Richards have a drinking problem?

    There's a huge difference between drinking socially and being an alcoholic. There's also a difference between drinking every day and being an alcoholic, regardless of what people who probably know nothing about alcoholism claim. The difference tends to lie in the real reason for the drinking, and hopefully a grown woman can identify herself better than her frenemies and people who know nothing at all about addiction. So personally, I'd say she's not at the moment.

    it appears that another "child actor" who supported her family with her earnings may have problems
    not a shock…but sad
    google her and you'll see her work as a kid in- starting at age 6 or 7
    Nanny and the Professor
    the Disney Witch Mountain movies
    Little House on the Prairie…and on and on

    Another story taken from mailonline.com???? No credit given to the source. I see this happening daily on this site, stolen stories.

    If she is anything like they portray her on the show she definetly has either a drinking or drug problem or maybe both. She is one wacked out woman. She looks like she is in her sixties and I am gonna take a shot and say that she is also a smoker by the sound of her gravel gertie voice. She needs help and alot of it.

    Im surprised Andy Cohen didnt try to get low moment on camera…again.

  9. 9

    Even Stevie Wonder can see she's a drunk. (So am I, 22 years sober now)

    If we're going to split hairs, they're ALL alcoholics.

  11. 11

    Ummmm… Have you seen the show? I think that drinking is the least of her problems.

  12. 12

    Sadly I think anyone who is so thin (I'm looking at all of Beverly Hills and Hollywood)has either addiction issues or emotional issues…it ain't normal!

    I use to like you Kim, but now you are nothing more than a bitch like your sister Kyle…..

    YOU look older than 48 and haggard……….you and Kyle are jealous of Brandi because she is pretty and less haggard looking than you.

    you suck now!

  14. 14

    By the way, anything you do EVERY DAY is an addiction……having one drink a day makes you an alcoholic.

    If I smoked one cigarette a day I would be a smoker…..

  15. 15

    47? No, 67 yes.

  16. 16

    She needs to escape from Witch mountain (the Bev Hills Housewives) again!

  17. 17

    Never seen the show so can make no judgement about her condition. That being said, if she is in fact an alcoholic, she,like any alcoholic, has four options. 1) Nut House, 2) jail, 3) morgue, or 4) sobriety. Those are the only choices we have. 4-7-81

    I dont know her, so I cant comment if she is an alcoholic.

    Kim K's SAGGY Ass says.. a lot of shit about things she knows nothing about. So anything I do everyday means I'm addicted to it, right? so we're all addicted to oxygen, H2O etc. No you hypocritical bitch. Perhaps, before you prove your ignorance again, you should use a dictionary to understand the meaning of the words you are using.

  20. 20

    She is two faced. Literally one side of her face is so different than the other. Freaky!

  21. 21

    Re: Uruha – i agree completly… If people dont know addiction, or they do. theres a huge difference on what they have to say.

  22. 22

    @Kim K's SAGGY Ass– My fiance and his rig crew have beer after work almost every day. i wouldnt say there alcoholics.

    Re: Michmasterflex – then you are a moron!

    What a prize to be married to……does he come with a beer belly also???

    I'm a dietician sweety…….GOT COLLEGE DEGREE????

    "I'm not an alcoholic, I'm just a serious social drinker." Oh semantics, of course that's the best excuse. It's a known fact that alcoholics have a tendency of lying to themselves and others, but in this case I would've had more respect for her if she quoted Xzibit instead, "Call it what you wanna call it, I'm a fuckin' Alkaholik". No confusion here.

    Re: ES-339 – Congratulations! Good on you.
    Re: *Sloane – Definitely. She seems to have an anxiety disorder, she is extremely neurotic, lonely, needy and seems depressed at times. I wouldn't be surprised if she used prescription drugs, in addition to drinking to self-medicate. It's quite sad, because it's very obvious that her past has almost everything to do with it.

    I am not sure if Kim Richards has a drinking problem or some kind of drug problem. She does look alot older than she is and her boyfriend also looks like he spent the last 15 years partying balls to the wall. Druggies and dopers usually find each other. I believe that Bravo must make sure all these housewives drink like fish before they hire them. If you think about it…..they are drinking all the time. Maybe Kim just doesn't hold her's as well as the others. BUT ALL THAT TALKING….. coke? vicodin? some kind of upper no?

  27. 27

    oh please she's off her rocker! she's a total alco!! Not to mention a complete child - acts like a mean high school girl!

  28. 28

    Thats right, thats right, CHICKEN HEAD KIM IS A PILL POPPER & BLOW MONKEY. That is entirely different.
    She looks so gross like a chickenheaded broom stick & she acts all crazy & weird. Llllooooo seeer.

    Re: Kim's Saggy Ass Re: being a dietician with a college degree….oh, so you being a dietican with your degree entitles you to decided sick and dying people who need nutrition get fed diet yogurt. LOL.

    LMAO love the pic above. Sorry to be so blunt but this lady (or whatever) is definetly smoking some serious crack. I dont know America but I think you should all know that rich people smoke crack too. Just beause you live in beverly hills and have money (cough cough) doesnt prevent you from having a disease as serious as addiction. Yes people…it a disease and sadly this lady's disease is written all over her face, littery. (For refenrence look at picture posted above) Crackheads are not just found in crack houses america, the can be found anywhere these…even in Beverly Hills (SURPRISE) Cuz I sooo did not see this coming! Give me a break, shes not on trazedone lexapro and whatever else, shes OBVIOUSLY ON AN UPPER NOT TRAZEDONE! Ppl in rehab take that to sleep. Who goes to the bathroom at a party every 10 min? Cokeheads! DUH! And now…meth heads… whatever it is she's on its not in a pill form its a white powdered substance, lets just hope for her sake she's not smoking it…yet!
