Posted on Jun 1 2015 - 9:32am by Avigail


As we reported, Kim Richards, star of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” attended her daughter’s, Brooke Brinson’s wedding in Cabo last weekend. Reportedly, Kim was under the influence at the wedding and caused a major scene pissing off the bride. Reports surfaced that after the wedding, Kim went missing and ditched rehab.

A family friend confirmed, Kim was “out of it” and “in a bit of a fog” at the wedding, but maintains that she was not openly drinking alcohol. The insider revealed, Kim sat next to her sister Kyle Richards during the ceremony last Saturday. The friend also said, Kim was “together the first half of the ceremony,” but didn’t comment on the rest of the evening. When the married couple hosted a farewell brunch on Sunday, Kim was MIA. Supposedly her friends and family had no idea of her whereabouts and were concerned.

According to TMZ Live, on May 28th, Kim finally made contact with her family but there is no mention of the RHOBH star’s actual whereabouts. More importantly, she has NOT returned to rehab to complete her treatment for addiction to alcohol and controlled substances. Kim went so much off the rails at the wedding that her sober coach quit and left her in Mexico.

Supposedly, Richards’ attorney was in the process of negotiating a plea deal in connection with Kim’s drunken rampage arrest in April. Earlier this month, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office moved to criminally prosecute the reality star. Richards was formally charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a cop. Since being criminally charged, Richards’ attorney has been in talks with the DA to get his client off the hook, using her rehab staycation as leverage but her recent stint in Mexico may thwart all efforts.

    Rats! I was hoping she would stay lost.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Me too!!!!

    • Ahahahaha!!!!

    • mitzi

      She ran into Waldo, Dora the Explorer and Carmen San Diego and they booked her a flight from Margaritaville to L.A.

  • Jennymckitty

    I wonder how her failure to return to rehab is going to effect the outcome of her court case. She needs to go back into rehab and straighten herself out.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      Well, she was supposed to report to rehab last Monday and if it hasn’t happened yet, chances are it’s not going to happen – which is fine with me. I want her and Boozdi off my TV screen.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      What she needs and what she wants are two different things to her. SMH

  • Babson_Chick

    Guessing they checked the dark corners of the Polo Lounge first…….

  • Marsbars09

    Man, it sounds like Kim went on a drug/alcohol binge and decided to let somebody know where she was at.
    All I can say is that it’s up to Kim whether she wants to live or not.

    • They probably found her in a crack house in Compton. Poor Kim Richards.

      • Marsbars09

        LMAO! Hey, she was probably blending in with the other derelicts at downtown L.A’s Skid Row.

        • Haha! Oh yes….how could I forget. Kim would fit right in with that crowd. She could go missing there for months.

  • chacha1

    The pampered nasty little bitch should have to detox in jail …. serves her right since she is now driving drunk again around Beverly Hills

    • Hey Chacha! You took the words right out of my mouth. LMAO!

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      THAT is exactly what she needs!

  • PalmdalePatty

    That nasty judge should be arrested for being such a HATER. Kim’s ex-husband used to own the Beverly Hills hotel, so she should have free rampaging privileges for life. Poor Kim, she should be allowed to live her life as she sees fit. Her nasty jealous kids just want to take the one and only thing that makes her happy away from her. I only hope that when Kim is rotting in jail, they realize what a precious gem, and the best party-buddy any kid could have is missing from their lives and they finally allow Kim to just be great.

    • Livie1

      LOL Patty! Very nice tongue-in-cheek comment!! Yes, that Kim really is a gem or is it a lump of coal??? Hmmmm…let me get back to you on that 😉

    • Rochelle Barozzi


    • Nancy Krystofik

      That’s just it, used to own… And some Xhusbands like to be a bit mean….I don’t think her kids are nasty and jealous, spending time around alcoholics-drug addicts is tuff, and it will destroy your body, but yes, party on Kim…

      • PalmdalePatty

        A body’s just another vessel to put alcohol in and break down pills.

    • muy loco

      Palmdalepatty you are either an acholic or drug addict yourself!! Kim Richards needs to go to jail! She has never been sober since RHBH has began! She is a hypocritical bitch to everyone!!! She cares for no one but herself….who the hell ruins their daughters wedding?? You need help too!!

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    Iffin you want to find Kim, find her doggie-son Kingsley.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    This chick has balls, I’ll tell ya damn

  • side of Sour Cream

    She’s horrible, nasty, bossy and rude when sober, she’s pathetic, stupid and mean when wasted. So I can’t imagine why anyone would care AT ALL if this woman stays drunk for the rest of her life. because WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

  • whose gonna do my hair!

    I thought the LA County Jail was so crowded they keep celebrities for only a few hours and let em loose? Maybe she can do community service, without her family, like in a homeless shelter or a skid row place run by monks.
