According to insiders close to the reality star, it was stress that pushed Kim Richards over the edge at the Beverly Hills Hotel early Thursday morning.
And boy, did she have a lot of things going on in her life. In reality, the 50-year-old probably just needed to find comfort in a friend — unfortunately that didn't happen.

Sources close to Kim and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills production say certain things got to be too much for her.
Apparently Kyle's older sister was dealing with her ex-husband, Monty, who still lives with her and is dying of stage four cancer; her son Chad being released from UCLA Medical Center hours before her meltdown; financial stress — according to reports, Kim is supposedly not receiving any money for child support; and the stress from planning her daughter Brooke's wedding.
That's definitely a lot for just one person to handle, however, the thing that reportedly pushed her to the destructive behavior was none of the above — it was re-watching the RHOBH's three-part reunion.
