Kim Richards

May Not Return

to 'Housewives'

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.

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.

I think Kyle and Kim need to forget where they came from and what they did to get here. They need to focus on today.

I really cannot stand it when it comes down to tit for tat and who did what etc.....it just makes it seem ingenuine.

Wasn't this woman doing TV interviews during Paris Hilton's supposed sex tap scandal? She should be ashamed of herself for her pathological need for attention. It's difficult to discern who's the most screwed up in that family, but you'd think they could at least afford some decent therapy.

She should at least do another season. People like her and want to know how she is doing. Her sister doesn't want her on the show because she brings out the worst in her.

Makes you wonder why these two OLD women still insist on popping out kids...is it a race to see who can be pregnant..

and by the way...any woman who has a kid graduating college and a TWO YEAR OLD at the same time...PLUS trying to talk her husband into ANOTHER kid?...(KYLE)...has NUTBAG written all over her.

and Kyle? you have a little something on your nose...

What I would really like to know is if the family matriarch really gave all of the wealth that Kim earned for the family when she was a minor to Kyle when she died. Do your job, TMZ, and give us the real truth about this family. Kyle is vile, and so is duck-lip Taylor. Probably won't watch this show next season.

What's wrong with you people???

Why some post are against Kyle and huuuuhhh.. how bad sister she is... Are u kidding? Kyle's husband supported her and her children economically. Kyle supported her in many ways also. So, it's Kyle a "bad sister" or is Kim?

I think it's Kim. She didn't move a finger to change her life and be a better person. All people who are alcoholics and prescription drugs addicts they are VERY MANIPULATIVE. And clearly she is one of them. The "poor me" attitude won a lot of fans.

In top of this, she didn't do ANYTHING to be a good example for her 4 (F-O-U-R) children who they grow up having an alcoholic mother.

Instead of pointing the finger on Kyle, think about Kim's children. They are the real victims in this whole story.

Anyone else notice that Kyle is starting to show her speed/alcohol addiction in her face? She has that druggie look to her.
