There have been numerous reports during this past weekend about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards and her arrest on Thursday. Now she is breaking her silence during a one-on-one interview with Dr.Phil airing next week.
In the interview she opens up about her ongoing struggle with alcoholism and discusses her recent arrest that made headlines all over the media. Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel and was charged with public intoxication, trespassing, and battery.
“I was angry and frighten and scared. I knew what I had done. The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink,” sheÂ tells Dr. Phil.
Allegedly, Richards made a scene Thursday night in the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills hotel and was described as “belligerent with slurred speech and reeking of a strong odor of alcohol.” Police were called around 1:30 a.m. by security in response to a supposed fight, she initially was in the bathroom and refused to come out, and she was then eventually placed in a holding cell for the rest of the night to sober up. Richards also reportedly kicked a police officer after the arrest at the station.
According to a new report, Dr. Phil offered to send Kim away to rehab directly after their interview.
â€œDr. Phil offered to send her to rehab, and said he would take care of the expenses. It was extremely generous, and a facility was picked out by Dr. Phil. Kim was blown away by the gesture, but didnâ€™t immediately agree to go,” a source tells RadarOnline. â€œKimâ€™s daughter, Brooke, is getting married for a second time next month, and she doesnâ€™t want to miss it. The event will be taking place out of the country. Meanwhile Dr. Phil warned Kim her life was in danger because of her addiction to alcohol.â€
The exclusive interview with Dr. Phil will air Tuesday April 28th, and she is scheduled to appear at the LAX Superior Court on June 10th. We wish Kim the best.
