Star of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Leaves Rehab
Kim Richards, star of the reality TV show the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’, is just the latest example of a ‘celebrity’ taking drug and alcohol rehabilitation lightly. Richards’ problem with drugs and alcohol became public after her own sister called her a “sick alcoholic” in season one of the show, and another housewife on the show, Brandi Glanville, accused her of doing cocaine and “being wasted out of her mind” in season two. On December 5th, 2011 Kim entered a rehabilitation center to get help for her problem with drug and alcohol addiction, and just a few weeks later on January 9th, 2012 she left the rehab center. Richards’ short rehabilitation stint brings to mind other celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, who seemingly check in and out of rehab a few times a year. These celebrity rehab stints can be a lesson for those New Jersey (NJ) and New York (NY) residents who also struggle with drug and alcohol addiction because a true commitment to recovery needs to take place in order for long term results.
