Well, it would have been more noble of her to have done it on her own accord, but the important thing is, she is getting the help she needs.
As The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is one of their most valuable franchises - and considering the year the cast has had to begin with - Bravo wasn't taking any chances with Kim Richards when it became exceedingly obvious that she needed help. A network employee is claiming that Bravo intervened with Kim and insisted that she go to rehab.
According to the source:
“Kim was told by the people at Bravo that she had to get help and that help meant going into rehab immediately. The network people were worried about her and wanted her to try and fix her problems … After Russell Armstrong’s suicide Bravo is trying to making sure that nothing bad happens to the people on their shows. They don’t want any more tragedies on their hands.”
At least they are learning from their mistakes and doing right by their people. Course, we're sure Kim felt just a wee-bit pressured to go since they basically "told that if she wanted to stay on the show then she had to get help."
But the bottom line is that she is getting help. Hopefully, she will make the best of this situation and do right by everyone, but mostly herself.
