Rhobh Daughter Wedding: Kim Richards’ battle with alcoholism is still going on. During a vacation from rehab, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star traveled to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to attend daughter Brooke Brinson’s wedding to Fat Burger heir Thayer Wiederhorn, which took place on Saturday.
While there have been rumors that Kim, 50, was “belligerent or drunk,” a source told Page Six that while she was not intoxicated, she “seemed out of it and like she was in a bit of a fog.” Kim was not intoxicated, according to the source.
An insider from Kim’s family has said that she traveled to the wedding with a sober coach who was introduced to the guests as her “Pilates instructor.” In a property apart from the wedding party villa, the couple spent their time together.
Kim’s coach, on the other hand, was increasingly frustrated with her actions and eventually departed, abandoning her in Mexico.
Kim Richards checked herself into treatment on April 16 after being arrested for driving under the influence at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She departed in May to attend her daughter Brooke Brinson’s wedding.
Following the wedding, she entered another treatment clinic right away after going off the wagon. The wedding was placed in Mexico, so she had plenty of time to recover.
And on Wednesday, at the Sharknado 3 premiere, the 50-year-old actress spoke up to Entertainment Tonight about her recent relapse in sobriety and how she is working to get back on track.
‘I was feeling stressed, and everyone was staring at me…
The bride and groom as well as the mother who has recently completed therapy,’ Kim revealed.
Brooke Brinson, Kim Richards’ daughter, has tied the knot — and she did so in a very Beverly Hills-appropriate fashion, to boot.
After less than 10 months of marriage, Brinson and Thayer Wiederhorn exchanged vows on May 23 at the One & Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Brinson’s cousins Paris and Nicky Hilston, who both acted as bridesmaids, were among those in attendance. Kim Richards of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as well as her sister Kyle Richards, made the trip to Mexico to attend the major celebration as well.
Brooke had always wanted to get married in Cabo, so this second wedding is really significant to her, according to a family source close to the couple. Even after her recent legal difficulties and rehab treatment, Kim says she “wouldn’t miss” the experience.
Her story continued: ‘I was quite stressed out, so I glanced on the ground and saw two small margaritas, one of which I believe I consumed. I’m not even sure what to say. So it’s likely that the combination of [treatment centre given medication] is what caused me to drink.’
Following Brooke’s wedding, where Kim was reunited with her sister Kyle for the ‘first time in six to seven months,’ the actress chose to skip her niece Nicky Hilton’s recent wedding in London in order to remain in treatment for her breast cancer.
After seeing her sister, Kim admitted that it was “a bit difficult,” but that she had “spoken to her a couple of times when she’s been in France or in London.”
Kim was candid about her feelings about the experience, saying, ‘I love sober.’ ‘I’ve always cherished my sobriety, and relapsing was extremely difficult for me.’
