Kim Richards Airport Video -- Drunk and Pill Poppin' at Airport

1/28/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards was confronted by cops at an airport recently after terminal staff complained she was TOO WASTED to fly ... and it was all caught on tape.

Kim Richards Drunk Video
TMZ obtained footage of a boozy Kim slurring, stammering and popping pills at San Francisco International airport back in July.

After repeatedly bothering staff about a flight delay -- airport security arrives to the scene to help control the situation ... and cops soon discover Kim was in the wrong terminal all along.

At one point cops say to Kim, "Have you had anything to drink today ... [the staff] is kind of concerned about your sobriety."

We're told Kim was eventually escorted out of the airport without further incident.

A source tells us they've been dealing with Kim's "issues" for a long time.

No, you're not the only one. I think Taylor is a lesbian. Second, nowhere on this video does Kim Richards look loaded. She and her sister notoriously hate to fly. She probably took something. Moreover, Kim Richards had a drinking problem after her mother died and she was in recovery for many years. With the filming of this show the pressure kind of got to her and she fell of the wagon. Kyle has a lot of resentment and gets in Kim's face. I mean, why should she care if Kim was late to Taylor's party, and Kim might have been drunk but she was completely pleasant and minding her own business. Kyle actually acts more like a mean drunk. Trust me, I was married to one. Everything Kim said during the season, despite her quirkiness, made complete sense and when confronted about the past the footage always showed her to be correct.

The only think Kim Richards did wrong was be on this show. She should have gotten a job in a real TV show if she wanted to be back in front of the camera. Maybe now she will since she is back in the public's consciousness. But don't forget, she retired when she was still starring in movies to raise her kids. Hollywood didn't get tired of her.

You must be watching episodes that I haven't seen in my dedicated-never-missed-an-episode-have-watched-the-eppies-repeatedly time. Kim is struggling with addiction - that's clear. The rest of the cast recognizes that. Kyle has been pushed past her limits by having to practically wipe her sister's ass every time she turns around. I'm not seeing at all how Kim is worthy of any of the sympathy that is being thrown at her.

This video doesn't even show her face. This could be any drunk blonde in America.

Who are all these trolls sticking up for Kim? Unsubstantiated? She effing pops pills on camera and provides her first and last name for the camera guy. What more do you need? And as to the fact that it happened in July, it IS still relevant b/c of all the crap that's going on with the Real Housewives, which started filming last February. If anything, this video should give viewers a hint of why Kyle is at her wits end in some of those episodes.

Yeah, Kyle pushed past her limits, forced to live in the huge house KIM bought the family. Forced to drive the car KIM bought her. Got her ugly face into acting because KIM was successful. Did you see what she looked like BEFORE plastic surgery? Poor Kyle. Kyle somehow thinks she's Kim's mother and she is doing her no favors. Meanwhile, nothing justifies trying to punch your sister in the back of limo after you don't let her leave a party because she's been humiliated by everyone.

Kyle drinks plenty and she's a mean drunk. Who would give someone grief about needing time to move into a new house because it interferes with your 1-year old's birthday? That's just abusive. Kim might have a problem. Kyle makes it worse.

And in case you think Kim is the only person who ever showed up drunk to a RHoBH event:

Agreed! I think Taylor wants Mauricio to. I think Taylor is insecure about her husbands assistant thats why she like's to stir up sh*t. Just my opinion

I don't care if they're ALL showing up drunk to these events, Kim plays the victim and then laps up the attention that she gets from that. Kim didn't buy Kyle's current house - Kim can barely afford her own house. Kim helped out the family in her childhood, but then she lost her ****. It's sad to see - they seem to have a great bond as sisters when Kim's on her game, but dang, girlfriend is off the rails.

Point to ONE moment in the season where she was "off the rails." She usually sat there and said nothing in the group. And she is responsible for the season's best line: "Why don't you go and blow up your lips some more?" I can think of many off the rail moments but none really involve her. Most of them involve Kyle getting mad or abusive with someone or another. Kyle losing her sh*t at Kim after they left Camille's dinner party for engaging Taylor was completely off the wall.

Okay, Jonathan - we'll agree to disagree because clearly you're watching a different show than I am and/or Kim is sharing her pills with you.
