Sources close to Kim tell TMZ .... her substance abuse problem has been an issue dogging her and her family for years ... and when Ellen asked Kyle Richards if Kim was returning to the show, Kyle said, "I don't know yet."

T0201_kim_richards_video_smallMZ obtained a video which we ran Friday ... showing Kim drunk at an airport last summer.

The "Ellen" episode airs tomorrow.

Kimberly Richards was a wonderful actress. My daughter, born in 1971, watched all of her shows as well as I did. She didn't have a normal childhood. Last season, when the Richard girls were having that terrible arguement in the limo, I believe Kim was definitely telling the truth; she supported the entire family for years. Bravo wouldn't be good for her alcolism at all. Bravo always like the drama and the alcohol is in every episode which is too hard for an
addicted person can handle. Kim has given us many years of happiness and now she deserves the same. If she now needs financial help, her family should help her monetarily. That's what family is all about. Kim is real, creative and sensitive. I just want her to be happy...for once.
