Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is currently undergoing a 30-day rehab treatment at Betty Ford. She’s been accused of being an alcoholic on camera by her sister Kyle, and also listed on camera three prescription drugs she was on.
During Season Two, Kim’s behavior and speech patterns were increasingly erratic. At one point she told her sister that she was so anxious that she had not slept or eaten for a week.
Now a source tells People that Kim was no longer living with boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld, and they may be broken up. Before entering rehab, Kim was reportedly staying with friends, and is essentially “homeless” because she hasn’t yet sought a permanent residence for herself.
Here’s the quote:
“He’s not in the picture. No one really knows what the deal was with them, but Kim doesn’t live with Ken,” the source says. “She’s basically homeless, staying with various friends. She doesn’t have a home base. It’s not unusual for people to not hear from her for long stretches of time. It’s been that way for years.”
Further evidence that Kim and Ken have split: Ken has recently been active on Match.com!
“Her family is relieved she’s getting help. She has lots of issues. She needs help.”
In a January 3, 2012 interview with Wendy Williams Kyle Richards confirmed that Kim had broken up with Ken, and then added “I was never a fan.” Kyle also said that despite reports that Kim had left rehab, she was still receiving care, was doing really well, and “would leave when she’s finished.”
Please get better Kim! You’re worth it!
