Kim Richards is TIRED of being questioned about her sobriety!
After Tuesday's episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim took to her blog to defend herself against accusations that she had relapsed back into alcoholism.

Richards felt the need to speak out after her co-stars, especially Lisa Rinna, speculated whether or not the reality star was doing all she could to stay sober.
To be fair, the housewives' concern escalated after the 50-year-old took one of her ex-husband's pain pills, a move which caused her to act extremely erratic at a poker party.
Now Kim is taking her co-stars to task, writing:
"I just don't get it. It's getting to a point where I actually feel bad for them—I would hate talking about me all the time. Haha!
I wish people would just stop trying to intrude in my life and ‘fix' a problem that doesn't exist. Would it break their hearts terribly to know and accept that I am healthy and well? I hate to sound like a broken record, but yes, I made a mistake when I took Monty's pain pill to relieve the chronic pain from my injuries, and yes, I am still sober and strong mentally and physically. However, that one situation did not give anyone the right to spread the rumor that I had relapsed and been drinking."
Hmm, this is a tough situation. On one hand, we understand why Kim's friends are concerned, but on the other hand we don't think the Housewives star should be attacked over what might just be rumors.
"According to the recovery programs, a relapse is when someone preeminently abandons their recovery plan completely by choice. I didn't do that, and these women know I didn't, because they interacted and had spoken with me many times following the poker night, and they'll tell you I had been and am fine. Their constant chatter about me honestly feels like they're belittling all the hard work I've put into my recovery for the past three years. Now, this has only become a big deal because they made it a big deal.
Throughout my sobriety, I have shared much of my journey with you all. As part of my recovery program, I work with a great life coach, Gary, who is accessible to me 24/7 as well as a close-knit group of sober friends and family I speak to everyday. My support system isn't just Brandi and Kyle…The reason why these ladies don't know everything about this integral part of my life is because I don't shout it out on the rooftops, and I choose to be private about some things (because this is what works for me).
We really do hope Richards is well and that she has the support she needs.
So, do YOU think Kim's co-stars overreacted?
