Kyle Richards has watched her sister Kim struggle with her sobriety on screen on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since Seasons 1 & 2. Kim checked into rehab in 2011 and has seemed healthy since, with the exception for the cast trip to Paris on RHOBH. Kim’s sobriety was in question when her behavior quickly turned bizarre. Kim claims she accidentally mixed up her medication while on the trip, and it made her drowsy. Kyle is now speaking out about Kim’s sobriety, exclusively to Wetpaint Entertainment!
“I know a lot of people out there are going to wonder about her behavior,” Kyle tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “But I knew in Paris it wasnâ€™t alcohol, I just knew that she wasnâ€™t herself. I honestly believe she mixed up her meds. Everything Iâ€™ve seen up to that momentÂ â€”Â all the struggle and all her strengthÂ â€”Â made me believe her. Since then, Iâ€™ve only seen her being solid.”
“I know itâ€™s frustrating for her because sheâ€™s worked so hard,” Kyle continues. “And people will come up to me and say, â€˜Oh, youâ€™re so naÃ¯ve.â€™ Look, I know there have been times in the past where sheâ€™s said sheâ€™s fine and thatâ€™s not been the case. But right now, Iâ€™m with her almost all the time and I know what sheâ€™s saying is true.”
