Kim Richards Attends Daughter’s Wedding Before Returning To Rehab (PHOTOS)
Kim Richards temporarily left rehab to attend her daughter Brooke’s wedding to Fatburger heir Thayer Wiederhorn in Mexico this weekend. See photos and video below.
As Gossip Cop reported, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” start sought treatment in April, following a drunken arrest in which she allegedly hit a police officer. Richards has battled alcoholism for years, but she claimed she was maintaining her sobriety up until the incident. She was permitted to leave her rehab facility in California to partake in the wedding festivities, which included events in both Los Angeles and Cabo San Lucas. Richards was reportedly accompanied by a sober companion, and abstained from alcohol during the wedding. She is now expected to return to rehab in the immediate future.
A number of famous relatives were also at the destination wedding, including Richards’ sister and co-star Kyle Richards, and their third sister, Kathy Hilton. Paris and Nicky Hilton, who are Brooke’s cousins, served as bridesmaids. In addition to pictures, Paris also shared a video of Richards making an emotional speech to her daughter and new son-in-law. Sadly, Richards’ ex and Brooke’s father Monty Brinson is battling terminal cancer, and was too ill to attend.
Richards’ legal case from her arrest is pending. As Gossip Cop reported, she faces up to two and a half years in jail on charges of battery on a police officer, public intoxication, and resisting arrest. See photos and video of Richards at her daughter’s wedding below.
