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.

Who do you think helped Kim get her rental? Who said anything about Kyle making Kim sign over her rights to the house? Kim needed cash and Kyle and hubby gave it to her. Just like they support her every month. Kyle tried hard to hide Kim's drinking and pill use. In fact the whole crew did. Was in the contract with Brovo. Do not show Kim drunk. You must not live in their area. This is widely known. Bless Kim. She needs help but won't get it. Leaving rehab after 1 week says it all. We all hope the best for her. I have said too much. I am done.

Kyle is a disgusting, classless, creep. I remember Kim on Nanny and the Professor, Escape to Witch Mountain, etc and she was delightful then...as she is now. I'm so sorry for any issues she might have. It is understandable with a freak, demented stage mother and an evil sister like Kyle. Kathy Hilton must be another winner, with that lowlife, slut Paris as a daughter. We love you, Kim. Kim and Camille will come out on top...no matter how badly that vulgar, vicious Kyle attempts to denigrate and destroy. And, I agree, Lisa....lose Kyle she is NOT your friend.

If that is true r121 (aka: one of Kyle's crone friends, probably posting drunk and therefore spewing an inconsistent story) then why did they show Kim "allegedly drunk" at the final party and why did they show Kyle saying "Kim is acting drunk!" to Lisa. Further, why in the world would Kyle then out her to all the world as an alleged alcoholic and why would the footage be shown of her doing so???

If what you wrote is true r121, then you've just painted a picture of Kyle as being a bigger, more evil monster than anyone previously imagined.

If that is true r121 then why did they show her "allegedly drunk" at the final party, along with footage of Kyle saying "Kim is acting drunk" and then why in god's name would Kyle (and don't think we don't know that r121 = Kyle) out her as an alcoholic and say "now everybody knows!"

If your story is true, you've just painted Kyle to be an even bigger monster than previously thought by anyone. Nice going (Kyle).

Kim Richards is an alcoholic. Her family checked her into a rehabilitation center, and the immediately checked herself out. She has 4 kids by 3 different men and has some issues with being a braggart. Everybody on this thread seems to make excuses and try to place the blame elsewhere, but really ... sympathy should be for the innocent. This is a middle age woman with kids that NEED her. She needs to be their mom, not another drunk causing problems for security. Stop making excuses, stop blaming Kyle (who obviously lives for her children and has her life TOGETHER) and realize that this woman needs to stop being taken care of by the rest of her family and finally shown some tough love.

Camille, bravo. You went from the bottom to the middle and made two vicious women look bad in the process. Smooth. I didn't like Camille but would choose her over Taylor or Kyle any day.

Lisa lost points in the finale for joining in on the gang up against Kim.

@nancy: What you say makes absolutely no sense based on Kyle's behavior at Taylor's party where nobody would have known Kim was drinking but for Kyle. And yes, the house bought with Kim's money wound up in Kyle's name. You have said too much because you don't make any sense. Kyle and Mauricio are wealthy. Kathy is loaded. It's no shirt off their back to help a relative in distress. Kyle still got to buy her daughter the gaudiest ring I've ever seen. I really have no sympathy for them. If Kim needs help and they have the ability to help then they should without resentment. Whether they like it or not they owe their lifestyle as kids to Kim. Payback in this case should be easy, not a b*tch.

All this being said I actually like Kyle. But her problems with Kim are way more complicated than "they've been dealing with her issues for years." I'm reminded of the story someone told who saw them on Rodeo Drive a couple of years ago and they went up to ask for Kim's autograph. Kim introduced Kyle and tried to take the focus off of herself and said "this is my sister, she's an actress too." Speaks volumes.

For all her quirks Kyle is real and kinda sharp. She is fun to watch. But her behavior in the limo was that of a common thug. She should have let Kim leave the party if she thought she was too drunk. Doing what she did completely contradicts what you are saying.

P.S. And no I don't think nancy is Kyle Richards or one of her friends. That would truly be pathetic. It's probably someone like me who watches the show because my daughter insisted one day and I got addicted (and I can't believe I watch it) and knows someone who knows someone who knows them. If it's any closer than that then these people need to get a life.

Oh, I do know her trainer. He used to work the entrance table at the Roxy in NYC for a gay promoter. He's had lip implants too, just like Taylor.

Kim, I feel bad your sister made you not be friends with Camille, who know's maybe she would have turned out to be a good friend and helped you through your ruff time like she did with her husband. I think Allison the psychic was dead on about Kyle now that I think about it. Allison may have come off in a bad way but maybe she was on to something. Hm Kyle is sure matching that description.

If Allison was so right on, why was she hinting... no, outright SLURRING that Kyle's husband was cheating on here with other women, but somehow MISSED THE FACT THAT BAT SH*T CRAZY CAMILLE'S HUSBAND HAD SOME OTHER CHICK KNOCKED UP??
that was hilarious. They were both trying to talk trash on Kyle, but they both wound up looking like FOOLS when Camille's own husband was the one screwing around. One thing nobody has mentioned, Camille was once the "other woman" in Kelsey Grammer's life back when he was engaged to another woman. Camille was aware that he was engaged to somebody else, yet that didn't stop her from destroying the relationship. Like I said, sympathy should be reserved for the innocent. And the people posting on this thread trying to defend the bragging, drunk ("move over Paris, I was a celebrity before you were")pitiful Kim Richards, and porn star, home wrecker Camille need to get some facts straight. Kim's family DID try to get her help.. they've been trying to help her for years. Who do you think takes care of her? she obviously cannot take care of herself! Kyle and Mauricio take care of Kim and Kim's children. Her family even checked her into a rehab center to dry out, but she checked herself out. You cant help somebody that doesn't want help! Don't put the responsibility on Kyle, Kathy or anybody else... the responsibility sits squarely on KIM RICHARDS shoulders.

Kim Richards was in rehab after her mother died and did fine for awhile. She fell off the wagon. It happens. Nobody is blaming anybody else. But Kyle's anger isn't normal and her violence certainly isn't either. I'm an attorney. That limo ride was caught on tape. Kim could have her sister arrested for assault and battery and get a restraining order based on that video. And I'm sure it's not the first time she's hit her. All those women drink like there's no tomorrow. It's part of why they're all insane and do the stupidest things on camera. Kim is loopy, Kyle is angry and violent, Taylor is gross and Lisa gets bawdy. I don't think Adrienne drinks very much. She was the only person during the finale who acted like she had any marbles left.

Ok, she really isn't slurring that much, but don't you people think the staff at the airport probably had a good reason for calling a cop to come ask her if she was sober?

And numb nuts who said maybe it's a breath mint? Yes, maybe. Do you keep your breath mints in a prescription bottle?

It's just sad how far people will go to cover for an addict THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW.

And really, Kim, if you need attention that bad, might want to go ahead and lead with Paris Hilton's aunt cuz NO ONE knows who you are! They sure as crap didn't have a clue before RHW.
