'RHOBH:' Kim Richards Reveals Why She Was Hospitalized


"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards has finally shed some light on one of the season's biggest mysteries so far - why she was in the hospital during last week's episode.

"I coughed and something snapped. And, Kyle, I just let out a scream. And Monty called a doctor, and he's like, 'This is bad.' And he said, 'That's it.'" said Kim Richards on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

Kim admitted to sister Kyle she had a hernia and a cracked and fractured rib that put her in the hospital for days. Ouch!

But the night before she was admitted, Kim tried to tough it out long enough to attend Eileen Davidson's poker night party.

She took some potent pain medication her ex-husband Monty had given her so she could attend. And now we know why Kim was acting so whacky during the festivities.

After witnessing Kim's odd and seemingly intoxicated behavior, many assumed the recovering alcoholic had fallen off the wagon.

So a writer for Bustle said what we were all pretty much thinking after this week's clarification: "We're all certainly glad it wasn't anything nearly as serious."
