Fans of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will get to see the sober side of Kim Richards in the upcoming third season of the show. The outspoken cast member, who completed a 30-day rehab stint for alcoholism this past January, says that cameras will follow her around as she actively engages in recovery and removes herself from the alcohol-fueled tiffs that the Housewives franchise is notorious for. "I’m not going to be sitting around with these girls sipping cocktails and just hanging out," she pledges. "I’m going to be very into AA and spending time with the people who have been supporting me." She adds that she views the upcoming season as a chance for personal redemption and hopes to serve as an inspiration for others. "If I can do it [get clean], under THESE circumstances—having it all filmed, having everyone know every little detail about everything—then you can do it. It CAN be done." If successful, her changed ways could perhaps serve as inspiration to other reality stars like "The Situation," who is dealing with reports that his newly-sober ways could get him phased out of the upcoming season of Jersey Shore.
