Kim Richards' First Post-Rehab Interview: I Drank to Cover the Guilt & Shame
"I just didn’t like me anymore," she says. "I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror."
Kim admits that she's had a long battle, saying, "I've struggled with it, and I’ve been working on it for a while. I am a person who has done it and relapsed and done it [again]."
When she thinks back about what landed her in rehab, she says, "I had so much guilt and shame for my behavior…then I drank to cover the guilt and shame and make it go away. It’s a vicious cycle."
She's getting support from her sister Kyle and making strides at a sober life. "At least I’m trying," Kim says. "I'm really trying."
