Kim Richards is sitting in rehab, and although her family is getting a break from the drama that an addict creates, the ongoing feud with sister and cast mate on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” is far from over. A new report claims that Kim’s daughter Brooke’s much talked about Mexican wedding will allegedly go on without her Aunt Kyle.

Brooke Brinson’s wedding was bantered about during the show’s reunion, as well as during Kim’s intervention, led by Dr. Phil, following a public drunken meltdown at the Beverly Hills Hotel, a few weeks ago. Kyle was not present at the interview/intervention, and apparently is passing on any potential upset that attending her niece’s wedding, now just two weeks away, may bring.

An insider explains to Radar,

“Kyle is refusing to go to Mexico for Brooke’s second wedding as she just doesn’t want to deal with any of Kim’s drama. Kyle wishes the best for Brooke and Thad, and doesn’t want to take anything away from their big day. But Kim and Kyle aren’t prepared to bury the hatchet any time soon.”

The source also asserts that Kyle has only called Kim once since she checked into rehab, and has not visited with her sister. Prior to Kim reluctantly plunking herself back into rehab, she and Kyle had not been in contact for five months. However, Kim has reportedly not been hurting for visitors. Kim’s bestie, fellow tipsy wreck Brandi Glanville, recently told radio host, Jenny McCarthy that she had indeed visited Kim in rehab. Brandi commented,

“If you saw where her rehab was…I was like, ‘Anyone could use 30 days here.’ It’s really nice. I don’t want to out where she is, but it’s beautiful. I took the kids and I was like, ‘This is beautiful.She joked, “This place is the Four Seasons!”

Kim initially balked at the idea of seeking help, if it meant missing the second wedding of her daughter. It appears that Kim will be hopping from Cali luxury to a Mexican celebration. Has her sister Kyle truly had enough of the havoc spread by her junkie sibling, and the part she undoubtedly plays in enabling the chaos? What do you think?

    “The Four Seasons”? Celeb rehab is useless. No comments about hard work and road to recovery?

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      The enabling continues huh Norrth? Any sympathy I had for Kim, like several seasons ago is completely gone at this point.

      • Trippinhhard

        I didn’t have none then, Kim is who she chooses to be an ADDICT, they will suck the life out of you, if u let them..Kim don’t want help, she can’t do it on her own.. Let Kim reap what he sows… Now that is just my opinion… Kim is dead inside, only she with the grace of the Lord, can help this drug addict..

    • Guardian

      Catering to an addict is what gets them there and catering to an addict is what keeps them coming back.

  • RubyT

    i applaud kyle’s decision to stay away and give this day to her niece. i hope kim appreciates it.

    • Bad Barbie

      Kim doesn’t even appreciate her life.

      • Guardian

        They love their substance(s) and put them above all else and all others – and most of all, their own lives.

  • Guardian

    They attended the first wedding. Kim is far too early into her “rehab” (even by the time of the wedding), for them to mix given the circumstances. Kim could be rehabbing in a shack – it’s not the facility, it’s the will to get better. Unfortunately, I think she may just be going through the motions. I hope not.

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      Guardian, I don’t understand the visitor thing. It seems like visitations should be limited in the beginning. For the sake of the patient in treatment.

      • Bad Barbie

        Yeah, I don’t get that either.

        • Ilivehereandlikeit

          Me either Bad, something isn’t adding up (which never does with this bunch!)

      • Guardian

        When I worked with addicts, visitors were not allowed in-patient for the first few weeks – most were too sick detoxing. After that we had two visit days where we controlled the number and who. Everyone was searched – you can guess why. Rehabbing is hard work with no guarantees.

        • Ilivehereandlikeit

          This is my understanding of how that works too. My passing knowledge is from years spent (faithfully) attending Al-Anon Family Group meetings. Personal work experience like you had, that’s a much better informational source than mine, which was more incidental, hearing someone talk in a meeting.

          Oh I agree 100%, rehab is serious business, not a social club so Brandi taking her kids and visiting Kim? That’s just bizarre. Doesn’t really sound like a rehab facility.

          • Guardian

            Someone had posted about sober living but I just can’t imagine any SL facility accepting an active addict. If nothing else, it could be extremely disruptive to others, the process and the purpose. Kudos to you – that’s a lot of years in meetings. It’s all such a heartbreak and too often ends badly. The long term recovery stats are not kind.

          • Ilivehereandlikeit

            The Serenity Prayer sums it up for me…I finally understood for the first time ever what was under my control (me) and what was not (everyone else.) Fortunately I was with an awesome group of Al-Anon people and learned very quickly I was there to save myself, not rescue the addict or protect the dysfunctional family system.

            Thanks for the kudos Guardian, I’ll gladly accept them!! Nice to talk to you about this.

            Yes, Karen above posted about reading the SL item and I pretty much said the same thing you did just now, not an appropriate jump without rehab prior. But again, I didn’t know for certain when I replied to her. You cleared that up too – thanks!

          • Guardian

            Accepting is the hardest because it often goes against the nature to want to fix for those we love and care for/about. Addiction is complex and it wreaks havoc for more than just the user as you so well know. Take care of yourself first and foremost as you have.

    • Bad Barbie

      She’ll be drunk at the wedding.

  • karen

    I read that Kim is not in rehab but in sober living

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      Wow, if true that’s kind of back-azzwards!! I thought sober living came after rehab? Oy! Leave it to Kim to do it HER WAY – argh!

  • Jennymckitty

    I don’t know how true this story I’d but I feel for Brooke….actually all the kids. They seem close to their cousins. It is sad that they won’t be able to celebrate together. If Kyle doesn’t go, I doubt all of her daughters will attend. I hope they can get to the place where they can be civil to one another.

    • bali1228

      She’s already been married like a year and they all attended the first wedding. If Brooke misses her cousins being there she can thank her junkie mother for ruining the relationship. Brooke is just doing this because she didn’t get the wedding she wanted because her dying father “ruined” her wedding plans. Who has a lovely wedding and then a year later expects everyone to run to Mexico for your second wedding? Crazy family….

      • Trippinhhard

        Thank you and Kyle and Maureco is sick and tired of Kim and her PROBLEMS..Kyle save yourself and stay with your own family.. This is a repeat of vows, Maureco already pays her bills.. Kim is an ungrateful addict sister.. Let her go and let her clean up her act, she’s only using Kyle for what her disgusting drugged up no good ass needs.. Good call Kyle

    • Trippinhhard

      Sometimes it best the cousins keep their relationship, because they all know how the family act together.. I detest a dead spirit, if you can’t be happy for someone else, stay away..
      It been happen to me.. I Samra will never step foot inside one of my brother’s house.. If I want to check on him, I will call, or he’s always in his yard, but his house will not see me.. I’m done with uncalled for BS..

  • bali1228

    Good for Kyle! She is choosing her own immediate family’s well being over her sister’s train wreck. I don’t blame her in the slightest. Siblings are great- until they aren’t. I no longer speak to a sibling of mine and my life is calmer for it. I have no regrets about choosing myself and my family’s happiness at all.

    • Trippinhhard

      Thank you, sometimes that brother or sister, drains you of your energy.. I’m doing the very same thing with my brother–his energy is DEAD, he drains the life out of me.. Thank for choosing yourself…. I rebuked him to his face in the name of Jesus.. I don’t want a hug from him.. Hello is enough for me… I will no longer be available for him. Sincerely Samra

      • Bad Barbie

        Sorry to hear that and keep your head up. I agree. Other people don’t come first. Call that selfish and all.

        • Trippinhhard

          Hey BB don’t be sorry, it’s DECADES that I have put up with.. His energy drains the life out of me.. I have to lay down Thursday, and don’t know what’s my future holds.. I know who holds my hand.. I’m better than good, my heart is not HEAVY anymore..I will never ever let anyone that drains the little life I have.. I’m sick and tired of crap..
          When I say, it’s a wrap, just take the “w” of its a RAP.. I will see you when I see, you and I don’t want you looking down on me..

          • Bad Barbie

            Oh Trippi. You will be in my thoughts. Everything will be fine. Positive thoughts and fairy dust going your way! xoxo

          • Trippinhhard

            Thank u BadAssBarbie lol- I like your post and this is my site.. Ummm tomorrow @3:00
            I know I’ll be whatever my Lord n savior what’s me to be.. But I’m happy and so free, that dead weight is off of me.. Ummm I love my brother, and his spirit dead to me.. He only cares about hisself and his family..it doesn’t hurt me anymore, I’m just not going to allow his energy, drains me.. If I come back the same, I have more dead weight, that’s has to GOOOOO… thank you sincerely Samra

      • Guardian

        Take care of yourself – it’s not selfish. I have read your posts before and you have tried time and again. Say hello and wish them well. There isn’t anything more you can do, it is up to them and that is what is so hard.

        • Trippinhhard

          I know this for SURE.. It’s like I post all the time.. Enough is enough.. That’s between him and his Lord and savior.. We are not serving the same Byb bye brother, I will see u when I see you.. I love him, PERIOD, it’s his energy that drains the life out of me and I almost dead. Ummmmm it hurt, but it’s what I have to do.. I’m the youngest.

    • Bad Barbie

      You know! Not we because we are siblings that means you get to abuse me, use me, bash me and so on… F THAT!

      Kyle has her own family to worry about, Kim should have never been her problem.

  • pixntrix

    I have no sympathy for either of the Richards sisters. They just need to go away.

  • Goo Goo G’Joob

    My personal theory on who is the inside source to Radar when the topic is Kim is that Kim herself calls in her own tidbits. When you remove “unnamed inside source” and replace that phrase with Kim, the articles usually become much clearer. When Radar has a story about Kim, I just take it with a grain of salt. It’s just more of Kim’s “Blah, blah, blah, right?”

  • Birdie

    Good for Kyle..Brooke has already had a fancy wedding, and she is putting her niece first by staying far away from Kim.

    • Trippinhhard

      Thank you, I agre, because I know how an addict can behave.. Bye bye

    • Bad Barbie

      The whole second wedding is so ridiculous. Didn’t she already get married like not even a year ago?!

      • Birdie

        So self absorbed and ridiculous…entitled nonsense. You would think the first wedding was in a dirty clerk’s office or something.

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        so lame a second wedding…….ugh

        • Bad Barbie

          And given the circumstances too. Like who cares?? Your dad is dying and already walked you down the aisle and your mom is in rehab and this is wtf takes center stage? A second wedding 2 secs after the first one… unreal!

    • equinox2009

      Absolutely, Kim is still and probably always be pissed at Kyle, so good for Kyle-just stay away from this toxic self absorbed addict! Kyle will still be a good aunt to Kim’s kids as she always has been

  • Bad Barbie

    I can’t even be mad at Kyle. Sometimes we have enough from family too.

    She already went to wedding #1 and didn’t Kim (or Brandi) claim that she made a scene and ruined the wedding? So why attend the #2? I would bailed too… Like at this point that is Brooke’s problem that she wants to be all vain and having a second lavish destination wedding in less than a year while her dad is still dying and her mom in rehab. The whole idea seems ridiculous and the timing couldn’t be more wrong. She is already married to the guy and her dad walked her to the altar! SMH #richpeopleproblem

    • Baylee Case

      Amen Bad Barbie. Well said.

  • TartLemon

    Say no to Brooke if you must, but don’t use Kim for the excuse. It’s not Kim’s party. She’s an invited guest just like Kyle is.

    • bali1228

      I didn’t go to a childhood friends funeral because my brother would be there. I stayed home because I didn’t want the discord between us to detract from the family celebrating their loved ones life. I’m sure Kyle doesn’t want to cause any upset for Brooke on her day (not really, because she’s barely a newlywed anymore) that would distract from her enjoyment of it.

  • jane

    Just Kim’s comments to Kyle at the Reunion about being “fine” with the nonexistent relationship they now have would be enough to question how she would be received at the wedding. Kim, whether sober or drunk, clearly has knee jerk reactions and her behavior is erratic and questionable. Kyle is better off to stay away and keep the attention where it should be on the “bride and groom”. If there were a scene, Kim would be the first to blame it all on Kyle.

    • Birdie

      EXACTLY..perfectly stated.

    • Spot on!!!

  • Ilivehereandlikeit

    you are so funny!

  • LMAOOO!!

  • Nancy Krystofik

    Will Monty walk his daughter down the isle again? Wonder how he is doing. The dog bite is a big part of the reason Kyle and family will not attend. Kim’s attitude about it would be enough to keep them away. Why would the plush surroundings of a sober living facility be more effective than a simple room. Sounds like a place where you can pretend you’re okay, because you got your hair and nails done When real problems in life happen, all the superficial stuff doesn’t matter. I hope They show the mug shot progressions of drugs and alcohol, that may help more than the plush surroundings.

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    didn’t they already have 1 wedding celebration?……….why go to 2………with all that has happened it would be awkward for Kyle……..I’m sure Brooke understands

  • Babson_Chick

    so true bam – I’m so over it all

  • Babson_Chick

    much ado about nothing – these child stars (whatever) need to grow up
