Faye Resnick Drug Scandal


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 . 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!”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
