Kim Richards Talks Relationship With Ex-Husband Monty And Daughter Brooke’s Wedding


Kim Richards is explaining her unique relationship with her ex-husband Monty Brinson in her blog this week. Kim reveals why she remains so close with her ex and talks about how special her daughter Brooke’s wedding day was.

Kim writes, “This is an exciting episode for me as I share with you all a peek into one of the most important days of our lives: The day my Brookie married the man of her dreams. Brooke and Thayer have known each other since birth, it’s fate…God…love… I am truly blessed!

Kyle and Maurice’s trip to Mallorca looked absolutely amazing! It looked like everybody had a great time. Yolanda always keeps her high. These situations put things into perspective for us. We love our children so much! We give me them everything inside us to make them strong young people, and at the end of the day, we can only hope that they are going to make the right choices.
It was cute watching Eileen go over her dialogue with her niece. It reminded me of my sisters and me. I was very happy to see that Lisa V. got her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame! How exciting to see all her fans dressed in pink! She looked so pretty, and Ken couldn’t have looked prouder. Congrats to Lisa V., Ken and Giggy!

One of my favorites couples is David and Yolanda. Listening to the two of them, well I just love them together and the team that they make! They support and balance each other so perfectly, and that is also what makes them such great parents!

Oh Brandi and her podcast! Filtered and unfiltered, she’s so damn funny! All day long!

You all officially get to meet Monty! I met Monty when I was 19, on a blind date. Go figure! I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

We were married for a brief time, but our hearts never parted! Giving birth to our daughter, we shared a bond, but our friendship has always been so deep. We have always made being parents to our daughter a priority. Monty has always been kind of a wanderer but has stayed at my home on and off over the last 15 years. In June, Monty was diagnosed with lung cancer, and I decided it was time for Monty to move in for good. He moved in full time with me, and I fixed a room where he is very comfortable and we all feel very good knowing Monty is where he needs to be and he is in good, loving hands! As you can see, Monty and I have a great friendship! We really do enjoy each other’s company, and I can’t imagine my life without him. So we are not thinking that way! Positive thoughts only!

Brooke and Thayer got engaged Christmas morning 2013. One of the most exciting phone calls and Christmases ever! Their plan was a destination beach wedding in 2015, however, our plans took a shift when we found out about Monty. Of course the most important thing right then was that Brooke could have her father walk her down the aisle, and that Monty would be strong enough! Brooke knew exactly what she wanted. She and I worked non-stop with an amazing team of people! From Mark Zunino designing the most amazing dress, Petals by David flying in the most Gorgeous Flowers, Glen our caterer, and our fantastic coordinator Vanessa, we were able to do just that.

Brooke and Thayer wed on August 2, 2014. It was only our family. A very intimate, private ceremony! The most magical and special evening . I wish I could tell you what I was thinking, the flashbacks to so many memories. Brooke was radiating with joy! More joy than I had ever seen come from that little face! She looked stunning! I, too, was overwhelmed with joy. I was so grateful to see her arm and arm with her dad, walking down the aisle, to join her soon-to-be husband. When she got to Thayer, each second became more and more intense! Then she looked over and at me and mouthed the words, “I love you.” I thought I was going to fall out of my chair! My heart felt so big!

The vows, the kiss, and then they were married!

Thank you for sharing this amazing, magical, and special moment with us!”

  1. First time I actually felt like I got Kim was in this episode.. The relationship between herself and Monty is really lovely and sweet.

  2. Kim was wonderful in every way in this episode. Funny and sweet with Monty, getting pedicures together, poignant and emotional as a mother would be at the lovely wedding with her daughter Brooke. I think it’s a incredibly selfless and loving thing to do to take in an ex husband in while he is ill and care for him. So as loopy, crazy, insensitive and rude as Kim has been in the past, she obviously has a very good heart.

  3. I think Kim is probably naturally kind. When she’s acted otherwise I think it was because she thought that was part of the job, and it never looks good on her. The very first confrontation she was dragged into was Kyle trying to get her to call out Camille, and Kim wouldn’t do it. Both Kyle and Taylor turned on Kim and ostracized Kim for months, if not longer. Kim without her sisters would probably be more confident and sweet all the time.

  4. I need to see the episode again, did Kim also introduce a women getting ready as Montey’s wife? Did she move in to Kim’s house is too?

  5. I just pray that if/when Monty passes Kim can hold it together and maintain her sobriety. It will be a struggle if she doesn’t have support from her family and friends.
