Living for the now! Kim Richards opened up about her sobriety to her longtime pal Brandi Glanville on the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered.
“Everything’s good. Just enjoying life, really, truly. It’s a good time for me right now,” Richards, 51, told Glanville, 42, when asked about her current condition.
The pair, who costarred on the Bravo series until last year, did not return as full-time cast members for Season 6. However, as Us Weekly exclusively reported on Oct. 21, Glanville has taped several scenes for the show.
“It’s relaxing for us,” Glanville said of herself and Richards on her podcast. “We’re not so stressed out with everything we would normally be stressed out about. We wake up with smiles on our faces and we don’t have to deal with the drama.”
Richards didn’t immediately agree, saying, “Well, not every day. It’s good. It’s better now. It was a rough time for a bit there. Just putting everything back in order and just really focusing on my family and me.”
Richards was sentenced to 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and 30 days of community labor following her April Beverly Hills Hotel arrest for a drunken confrontation. She was also arrested for shoplifting more than 100 items from a Target and her family later checked her into a rehab treatment facility. Now she’s is focused on living in the present.
“One day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time,” the mother of four said. “I’m living in the now, living in the present. If I look too far back or too far forward, it’s kind of crazy and I get fearful. Living in the present for me is just the best way, and the only way for me.”
