The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills already dealt with a suicide in this season's premiere, and now there's more trouble. Kim Richards, Housewife, former child star, and aunt to Paris Hilton, has gone to rehab, sources tell Entertainment Tonight. The world learned about Richards' drinking problem in the show's first season, when Richards and sister Kyle blew up at each other in a limo, with Kyle yelling, "You are an alcoholic!"
In an episode last month, Richards explained her trainwreck-y behavior by telling plastic surgeon/fellow castmate's hubby Paul Nassif that she's taking a number of prescription drugs for depression and anxiety: Trazodone, Lexapro, and Topomax, the last of which E! notes is an antiseizure drug sometimes prescribed to alcoholics. In an appearance on Bravo last night, People reports, castmate Taylor Armstrong offered her support to Richards and said, "if she's getting healthy what more could we ask?"
