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.

Kyle and Taylor are smug disgusting B%tches.

Can't believe Kyle keeps throwing her sister under the bus like this. WHO could have leaked this to TMZ...hmmmm.

Love you Kim, you were spot on about Taylor. Don't let VILE KYLE bully you.

I also believe Camille's version of what was said now a little more. Kyle is a smug, fugly poor man's Demi wannabe.

Not so loved anymore Kyle huh????

Why is this coming out now if it took place in July (Kyle)? Why are the Hiltons and Richards (who all have major addiction problems) throwing Kim under the bus? Kyle, it's okay for your neice to make porn, do cocaine and Jail but you can't even get Taylors lips off your ass (which are too big to fit) long enough to have your sisters back?

If Kim was "popping pills" the way you suggest she is, why did she do it in public? If she had been doing something wrong she would have gone in the restroom and into a stall, away from the camera. She may have been taking a xanax to help with the same anxiety her sister Kyle has about flying. That will make you loopy.

Don't know who leaked this. Probably don't want to know. There is supposedly a US Magazine story out right now that is also throwing poor Kim under the bus. The vast majority of viewers of RHOBH see what is going on and it isn't pretty. Whether Kim has a problem or not is almost beside the point.

Kim deserves a sister that will stick up for her over the likes of Taylor. Thank goodness for Adrienne and Paul. They bring a lightness and humor to the program. Otherwise, I might just have to turn the channel.

Go Kim. <3

This is the best you've got TMZ? Really? From six months ago? Wow you are right on top of things. Crazy coincidence I'm sure that two housewives from Beverly Hills are getting a lot of flak for their mean girl tactics. Who tipped you off? Paris? Taylor? Or is that you Kyle? Mean girls forever

WHO would Kim let stand so close to her at the counter and let into her personal space...HER SISTER.

Looks like Kyle took and leaked the video and leaked it to TMZ, you know Paris and Elliot Mintz have Harvey on speed dial!

Brovo started filming in Feb. So yes, there would be cameras on Kim as she goes about doing her thing. Do ya think this could be a producers leak or the camera guy? You who talk like you watch the show DO NOT. Kim is a drunk and pill popper. Brovo and the cast have covered for her. You see her drinking water all the time and yet she has to be driven home from that rich guys house. Can't remember his name. The guy she was set up with drove her home which was 2 hours out of his way. I feel bad for her but get help, girl. And , no she did not buy Kyle's home. Kim has no money. If she did why is she renting? And with Kyle helping her with her bills.

Not only does the Hilton and Richards have substance abuse history, so does the Davis family. Jason Davis who was on Celeb Rehab is cousins with Kim's two middle kids(her son and Whitney Davis). People can contact Mr. Hilton and Kyle's hubby via their they work at Hilton Hyland or type in Hilton Real estate co. If they want the best for Kim, then they should do what is right, not what makes them sell homes.

Also, contact and tell them you will not buy their products while Taylor Armstong is getting paid by them.

One comment I have to make: it's clear that many, many people (myself included) love Kim Richards and are serious total fans of hers. When I see her on the RH show, I suspect there might be some issues to be dealt with, but I see a woman that I wholeheartedly adore, not just because of all her work in the biz but because when she laughs in her goofy way, she is seriously charming.

why do all you fools care so much about these rich brats? boozin and pill poppin, not a big deal. Kim signed up for this sort of treatment by being on that dumb show, which i love btw. drop your name again kim, and you just might break it! they are all in love with themselves, and if that's what helps them wake up in the morning, so be it.

This is Paris Hilton, 20 years down the road. Her aunt even looks like her. All Paris needs to do is to look at her aunt for her future. Honestly, that should put some fear of God into her, if nothing else does.

The house big Kathy lived in when she died (Kim and Kyle's mother) was purchased by Kim. When Big Kathy died Kim found out the house was in Kyle's name. All this horror starts with the mother who was a crazy maniac who had sex teachers for her oldest daughter and who was a stage mother from hell. The internet is full of stories about her. Had she inherited the house like she should have, Kim might have been independent. But I don't think Kyle wants that. She likes sticking it to Kim.

Leave Kim Alone!!

I can't believe Kyle's camp (including Bravo & Taylips) would stoop this low.

Unbelievable and ungrateful b$$$tches. I wouldn't even have watched the show if it wasn't for the fact that Kim was on it.

If in fact Kim does need help, I hope the first thing they tell her is to get away from her toxic sister. Really Kyle, gutting your sister on national TV, for ratings - disgusting.

Harvey, you have stooped to an all-time low. How dare you pull this **** from 8 months ago. You are no better than Kyle; you've both thrown Kim under the bus and you should both be ashamed for it.

You are disgusting and are all about propaganda and hurting people. You care nothing about the well-being of others. I don't know how you sleep at night.

This was the lowest blow so far. I am done with TMZ forever. You are all s***.
