Kim Richards' rehab trip 'a step in the right direction' according to co-star
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards -- child star and Paris Hilton's aunt -- checked into rehab this week. She's been called an alcoholic on the show and has admitted to a dependence on anti-anxiety medication and anti-depressants.
Now, her co-star Adrienne Maloof tells Us that rehab is "a step in the right direction" for Richards. "I wish her well," she says, which sounds super-genuine to us.
Maloof's husband, a plastic surgeon, also suggests that Richards' often slurred speech can be attributed to the combination of pills she's taking -- Lexapro (anti-anxiety), Trazadone (antidepressant) and Topamax (which can be used to treat alcoholism).
