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 wasn’t alcohol, I just knew that she wasn’t herself. I honestly believe she mixed up her meds. Everything I’ve seen up to that moment — all the struggle and all her strength — made me believe her. Since then, I’ve only seen her being solid.”
“I know it’s frustrating for her because she’s worked so hard,” Kyle continues. “And people will come up to me and say, ‘Oh, you’re so naïve.’ Look, I know there have been times in the past where she’s said she’s fine and that’s not been the case. But right now, I’m with her almost all the time and I know what she’s saying is true.”
