Kim Richards is finally getting real about her issues with alcohol.
In an interview with People Magazine, Ms. Richards spoke candidly about her struggle to stay sober. Richards' ongoing battle has been widely discussed on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but this is the first time she's opening about how her addiction started.
According to the blonde, her need to drink began when she divorced her second husband Gregg Davis in 1991. Even though Kim waited until 24-years-old to have her first "real drink", she started drinking a lot of wine when things got tough between her and Gregg.
"I was always disciplined and driven about my body and what I put into it. But the pressure with the divorce and the custody battle, it got to me."
Sounds like a hard situation.
Eventually things got out of hand:
"I started noticing I was drinking a lot. That's when my issue started."
Well, at least Richards is working really hard to get issues under control. The momma is doing all she can!
