Kim Richards made it to the wedding last week to see her daughter, Brooke Brinson, get married. The entire family flew to the One & Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where many people say she fought with her at the ceremony, according to the Daily Mail.
Richards, 50, also gave a sweet speech at the reception, telling Wiederhorn that “nothing feels better in my heart knowing that if my daughter isn’t with me, she’s with you.” But it was soon realized that Kim fell off the wagon.
“It’s always been Brooke’s dream to get married in Cabo so this second wedding is really important to her,” says a source close to the family. And, despite her recent legal troubles and rehab stay, mom “wouldn’t miss it.”
Kim Richards appeared at the wedding where her daughter tied the knot with Thayer Wiederhorn after the two met 10 months ago in California. Guests included Brinson’s cousins, Paris and Nicky Hilston, who both served as bridesmaids.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim and her sister Kyle Richards also made the trip down to Mexico for the big event.
The earlier Bel-Air gathering, which took place at aunt Kathy Hilton’s house, was organized so that Brinson’s beloved father, Richards’s ailing ex Monty, could walk his daughter down the aisle.
But here’s the real kicker.
Richards has disappeared after the family tried to make her to back to rehab. Kim admits that she relapsed last week at her daughter’s wedding, but has completely vanished.
“Kim has not returned to rehab after the wedding,” a source says. “She will not answer anyone’s calls and is missing in action. Everyone is really worried but no one knows where she is.”
Richards entered a treatment facility for alcoholism recently after she was arrested at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge last month. Kim was charged with public intoxication and trespassing.
By agreeing to rehab, Richards would get a very lenient plea deal and avoid jail time. In addition, Kim would also be able to return next season to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
But according to the insider, all bets are now off. The family hasn’t spoken to her since the meltdown in Mexico.
“Things do not look good for her returning to the show now,” says the source. “Producers want to give her the ultimatum that if she doesn’t return to rehab by the end of this week that it’s over, but they have not been able to reach her.”
It’s really a shame that her addiction has caused so many problems. At least Kim Richards attended the wedding, but hopefully she can get the help she needs to move on.
