The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
A Bravo source claims Kim Richards’ recent relapse may have happened far before anyone realized it. Although there had been a few questions thrown out during filming on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season five, a Bravo source now claims what was going on behind-the-scenes was far more serious than what fans have seen on the show. On April 21, Ecumenical News reported the following in regard to the Bravo source’s statement: “While Richards did not drink alcohol openly on the set, the actress would, at times, disappear for a brief time period and re-appear in a somewhat less than sober state.” According to the site, the Bravo source spoke to TMZ earlier this week, revealing news of Richards’ secretive behavior on set. Prior to the Bravo source’s statement, Richards’ co-stars often questioned her sobriety, namely Lisa Rinna, who has experience with dealing with addicts (her husband Harry Hamlin’s two brothers were alcoholics).

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 7:51 a.m., Friday, October 5, 2012 Soap superstar Eileen Davidson, who returns to Days of Our Lives on Thursday, Oct. 11 as nutty hell-raiser Kristen Blake, hasn't been on the NBC serial in 14 years. [...] she wouldn't be on it now if she hadn't been unceremoniously dumped from her long-running role as heroine Ashley Abbott on CBS's The Young and the Restless. Sony, which oversees both soaps, pulled the puppet strings on the deal, axing Davidson fromY&R mid-contract and basically trading her without permission, like she's with the NFL. Who doesn't want to see Kristen back in Salem ruining lives and driving Dr. Marlena Evans bat-crap crazy? TV Guide Magazine talked with Davidson ...
