‘She sounds like she’s in great spirits!’ Brandi Glanville insists former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills co-star Kim Richards has NOT vanished.

In her first TV interview since leaving rehab earlier this month, the former star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, 50, spoke candidly about her recent arrest and her struggle with sobriety.

Phil interview, and what really happened the night she was arrested for public intoxication at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “I love sobriety,” Richards told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “I’ve always loved sobriety, and relapsing was very hard for me. The 42-year-old has spoken out following reports that Kim has been axed from the hugely popular Bravo show after abruptly walking out of the Malibu facility, where she was thought to be receiving treatment for substance abuse issues.

Referring to the alleged incident in her New Weekly column, Brandi insists the former child star – an aunt to socialites Paris and Nicky Hilton – only left the clinic because she had come to the end of her stay. ‘I spoke to Kim – she just got out of rehab,’ she claims. ‘She sounds like she’s in great spirits. I have to say, don’t take this wrong, but I really wanted to go to treatment because I needed a break from what I was going through at home.” Richards cited family stress as a contributing factoring to her arrest, telling Turner, “Monty, my ex-husband, is very sick and my son wasn’t well. And I had to give away my dog, and I wasn’t talking to my sister [Kyle Richards].” “I went in and I got to learn a whole lot about myself,” she told Turner. “I dug deep into my past, things that happened to me as a child, good and bad, teenage years, relationships with all my loved ones, where they need to be mended, where they’re very powerful.

The sisters then engaged in a mega feud — also involving Kim’s newfound friendship with Brandi Glanville, among other deep-seated issues — that was chronicled this past season on the RHOBH.) The problems spiraled from there. According to TMZ she was under the influence of either drugs or alcohol at the event in Mexico, where she reportedly got angry with her daughter and insulted the groom’s family.

The reality star was reportedly not getting along with staff, including doctors, so packed her bags and left the facility in the middle of the night over the weekend. I’m an alcoholic,” she said. “They’re going to say what they want.” After Richards was taken into custody, she reportedly kicked a police officer in the leg. I worked on me.” Although she left rehab to attend her daughter Brooke’s Cabo wedding in May, Richards explained why she missed her niece Nicky’s recent nuptials in London. “I decided to stay in treatment,” she shared.

Richards also revealed the current status of her relationship with Kyle. “I’ve talked to her a couple of times when she’s been in France and London,” Kim dished. “She came to Brooke’s wedding. But she needs to find her own place to live soon.” And though Richards claimed her reps are in talks with Bravo to return to TV, it’s unlikely that will happen. “Financially, she’s stressed,” an insider told E!
