Here's a little Housewife intel! Brandi Glanville told Us Weekly that her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Kim Richards is doing much better after her recent arrest for public intoxication and subsequent intervention with Dr. Phil.

"I saw Kim last Sunday,” Glanville, 42, told Us at the launch of her new wine Unfiltered Blonde Chardonnay on Thursday, April 30. "She's doing good! She's doing great."

Richards, 50, was arrested on April 16 inside the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel and booked on charges of public drunkenness and battery (she kicked an officer while in custody).

The Beverly Hills Police Department released a statement to Us Weekly saying the reality star "was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior cursing at the officers and passively resisted arrest."

Just this past Tuesday, April 28, Richards' sit-down interview with Dr. Phil aired on CBS, during which she copped up to drug use. The former child star's son, Chad Davis, also called out Glanville during the program, for supposedly being a bad influence on his mother. "She's toxic," he said of Brandi, who's evolved into one of Richards' close pals in season five of RHOBH.

Despite the behind-the-scenes drama (reunion included!), Glanville said she's still chummy with Richards. "I'll see her again this Sunday," the Real Housewife told Us.

As for whether Richards is committed to prioritizing her health and well-being? "Yes, absolutely," Glanville replied. "Yep."

She also told Us that she invited Eddie Cibrian (her ex-husband and father to her two sons Mason and Jake), as well as her former sworn enemy LeAnn Rimes to the launch. "Yeah, I'm totally fine with that," she told Us of inviting the duo. "I saw them yesterday at Jake's game. They RSVP'd. They're not coming but… [it was a nice gesture]."

Another pal to miss out on the event? "I've always stayed in touch with Yolanda [Foster]," Glanville said of Gigi and Bella Hadid's mother, currently battling Lyme disease. "I talked to her this morning, she's in Germany. She's very very sick still. She called me and was like, 'I wish I could be there for you' and said 'congratulations.'"
