Kim Richards checked into rehab earlier this December and we're so happy to hear that she is doing well!
Her ex-husband Monty Brinson shared the good news, saying:
Kim wasn't happy with her life. She wanted to seek help so she could get better for herself, her children and her family.
A source close to Richards states that Kim's alcohol problem had being building for quite some time. Fortunately, she got the help she needed and Brinson thinks Kim will be a happier person when she is released.
"She's ready to start a new life when she gets out," he added.
Brinson was married in the 1980s to Kim and although they've been divorced for years, it sounds like he still cares a great deal about her well-being!
Good luck with the rest of rehab, Kim! We're looking forward to seeing a happier and healthier you after you complete the program!
