Faye Resnick is known to Housewives fans for being Kyle Richards’ BFF and for stirring up trouble on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but in the 90’s she was notorious for being a part of the O.J. Simpson trial and writing a book about her friend Nicole Brown Simpson.
In Faye’s infamous tell-all book; Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted, she admitted she took three trips to rehab for her self-described cocaine addiction. Despite her previous attempts at recovery, Resnick relapsed on hard drugs in the months just before Nicole’s June 1994 death.
“I’d slipped back into [snorting] and smoking coke two or three times a day, and mellowing the drug’s hard edge with Valium,” she wrote in her 1994 book, obtained by Radar. Nicole Brown Simpson held an intervention for Resnick just days before her brutal murder on June 12th, 1994.
“How can this defeat me again? This will be my third time going to rehab. Is it ever going to end?” Faye said she asked Simpson.
Only three days into rehab, Resnick learned that her best friend was murdered. “A force like I’ve never felt shuddered over me,” she wrote. “The two counselors rushed to grab me as I went into convulsions. I was babbling, shrieking like a wild woman!”
