Kim Richards Talks About Life After Rehab And Arrest: “I’m Just So Grateful To Be Where I Am Today”

Kim Richards is opening up about overcoming her struggles and reveals she is welcoming new challenges in the seventh season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Before I started the show, life was really good and then, you know, things happened and it wasn’t,” she told People at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 7 premiere party at the Sofitel Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, California, on Friday.

“And it wasn’t just my relapse that was hard, but I went through a depression as well after that.”

Looking back, Richards said she feels “so happy” now.

“I’m just so grateful to be where I am today, and to be this happy and have life this good and have the relationships that I have … I feel so blessed,” she said. “I feel powerful. I feel so grateful. Honestly. Life is so amazing today. I wake up happy. I go to sleep happy…”

Now, Richards said she prioritizes her family over everything.

“I was really busy this season with my home, my daughters, my son and my grandchild,” she said, when asked about her presence in the new season. “My focus was really on my family.”

As for drama in the upcoming season, Richards said it’s difficult to avoid.

“Well I really wouldn’t go that far!” she said, when asked if there was less drama in season 7. “I managed to make a little time to get by to say ‘Hi’ to everybody, but I don’t know if I squeezed out leaving out the drama. It wasn’t my doing, but you know, leave it to the [Lisa] Rinna!”

Kim's younger sister Kyle, who was also at the premiere, also reiterated how happy the former child star is now. “She looks great,” Kyle told reporters. “She’s healthy. She’s happy. Her daughter had a baby so I mean we have two new babies in our family who are the cutest things.”
