Kim Richards

May Not Return

2/1/2011 10:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Richards may not return to the cast of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... so her sister said during a taping of "Ellen" today.

020111_ellen_clip_video
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.

Uh, what I noticed about Kim's remark about having another child was that almost immediately KYLE told her husband that she wanted another baby. Guess Kyle couldn't stand the fact that Kim might once again have something that Kyle didn't have. She is a bullying, jealous botox-faced freak who dresses like she's 16 and for gawds sake she needs a haircut, she looks ridiculous!

Kim seems too nice to be on the show. I just wish she had a nicer sister. Kyle and Taylor were made for each other. I hope they are BFFs forever, preferably on a deserted island somewhere far away where they are never heard from again.

Kyle is an idiot. If I treated any client of my freaking own or my husband's with such disdain I'd be out of business and home. She's a dolt. She's weven worse how she has abandoned her sister. I'm sure there's more backstory but the gist is still the same--sister. end of discussion. Kim is actually somebody on this show of interest who has done something. Kyle married (a couple times) well nough. Adrienne is kind hearted but as the saying goes to be optimistic when you have everything you want is kindof a let down. Taylor--please don't make me say it. She is dire need of a brain and personality. Lisa needs to stop pretending to be holier than thou and stop directing dumb*** Taylor to do stupid stuff then sitting back and doing nothing when it bombs--kindof like she does with her homelife. Anybody else I didn't mention well it's not important. Kelsea Grammer's wife shouldn't be on there. Not for any other reason than the other people are just not connected whatsoever. I think she needs time alone. I see where they thought this would be good for her (in fact I think Kelsea set her up to do this hoping it'd make her independent) but it was totally a crutch and not a good idea. She has every right to beg out and the other b****** on this show should be on notice that when this happens to you (and karma says it will) then you should hope you have better women around you.

Kyle Richards is a bully . She calls Kim names like "insane" and tells her what to think and say. She also takes advantage of Kim's state and that's disgusting.

how is she throwing her sister under the bus when her sister finally admitted she was sick and has been sick for quite a while...why don't you think Paris' mother has very little to do with her own sister, the only sister you see her going out with is Kyle....THE BITCH IS NUTS!

I'd rather see Kim on Celebrity Rehab than on RHOBH with those vile women. Without Kim around to pick on, we can enjoy watching them devour each other.

Why hasn't KYLE Richards confessed to her DRUG use? She sure likes to rat out her sister... Kim ALMOST told all and then stopped...watch the show again where Kyle says
"YOUR AN ALCOHOLIC!" in the limo and kim points BOTH fingers at her and starts to tell "REALLY? Well YOU DO --- all DAY!"

While she's spilling the beans...Kyle is SCREAMING Shut up, Shut up , Shut up and drowns her out!
Watch Kyles jaw...she grinds it back and forth like a speed freak and has that opiate voice going on...

ALSO: Who was the "Realtor" in Charlie Sheen's house putting together the "Porn Family" house docs? could it be Mauricio? KYLES HUSBAND? Hmmmmm

You have some work to do TMZ.

Wow! Even now, Kyle is making her sister seem insignificant and laughs about it!

You think she would have a little more humility and remorse when asked such a genuine and caring question from Ellen. Notice how the other women seemed gunshy to respond.

Someone should have made her do a breathalyzer!

I get Kyle has probably dealt with Kim's issues for years as I come from a family with two siblings who to this day - with teenage kids themselves, still haven't pulled their life together, but they play the victim all the time too and act as if they "feel" attacked. They forget what they've put everyone else through because of course - how can you see through the sickness cloud from within?

It seems Kyle is now using the finale as an open door of sympathy and honestly, she should be using it for the opposite and watch herself now because she is going to be bitten in the ass big time.

I feel sorry for Kim's kids because you can tell that they seemed to surround their mom in the different episodes and had that "what is she going to do or say next" look. Especially when she met that random guy at the market and LET HIM into her home that same night? THAT is what people out of control do - and with her children in the home!

That was such dangerous behavior and if she did that on tv, imagine what they've been through off camera their whole lives?

I just wonder where are the dad's in their lives?

And I doubt Kyle stole Kim's house. I am sure she lost control may have almost lost her home and Mauricio stepped in and saved it.

Anyway....I just hope Kyle snaps out of it because she may have bitten off more than she can swallow these last few months and embrace the fact that she can maybe help Kim a little easier for all of the family involved. Sometimes this is what it takes to make it right and they both have a chance to do so and let their mother rest peacefully once and for all.

@Lori - yeah, I tried to catch who she was referring to. I thought I heard that too as Kim pointed her finger at Kyle.

It's really sad to see all of these levels of people living their life this way.

This only solidifies what money and power do not protect you from and shows what the poor and rich have in common - addictions in every form.

I agree with those who say Kyle is a bully. She is totally unfair to her sister and even gets that duck-lipped chick to pitch in on the attacks as she knows she can't handle a tag team.

And I don't know who's the drunk and who's not on that show. They all drink constantly and I didn't see Kim passed out or even slurring ever so I think it's more nasty sister stuff by calling her a drunk.

Funniest thing of all is at first I thought Camille was the worst and now, compared to Kyle, Camille is a sweetheart. I think Kyle set up Camille to make drama for the show after seeing how she operates.

Team Kim over here.

Kim is weak. She needs to grow the fu** up and stop falling back on what she did when she was a child. And all you trolls here sticking up for Kim need to get a real job. Kyle isn't a bully. She obviously cares a great deal for her sister. If she didn't, she wouldn't be so passionate about their relationship.

Kyle is jealous that her sister was the bigger star as a child. And the only thing she is passionate is her nose candy.

I get the feeling Kyle is on here defending herself.

Hey Kyle, your mask came off, we saw the real you.

Wow, Kyle after the reunion show tonight you need to take a long hard look at Kim: She showed what it is TO HAVE YOUR BACK; SHE REFUSED TO OUT YOUR DRINKING PROBLEM AND OUT OF CONTROL RAGE AND PHYSICAL ABUSE WHILE MAINTAINING HER INTEGRITY AND NOT LYING FOR YOU AS YOU TRIED TO MAKE HER ADMIT SHE WAS AN ALCOHOLIC. SHE IS NOT, YOU ARE AND A BULLY AND ABUSER! GET HELP! AND TELL YOUR FRIEND TAYLOR TO WATCH THE SHOW TONIGHT AND SEE WHAT REAL MANNERS LOOK LIKE, KIM DISPLAYED THOSE AS WELL. WE CAN ONLY HOPE YOU KYLE AND TAYLOR SLITHER BACK INTO THE PIT OF SMUT YOU WALKED OUT OF BEFORE BEING ON THE SHOW...GO AWAY!! FAR AWAY. NOBODY IS BUYING YOUR LIES ANYMORE!!
