Richards has been open about her battle with alcohol addiction in the past.

"I’m an alcoholic," she said in January 2012 during a Real Housewives reunion show on Bravo. "I had so much guilt and shame for my behavior and what I did, and then I drank to cover the guilt and shame and make it go away. It is a vicious cycle."

Richards has been to rehab three times. She completed her most recent stint in January 2012.

"I'm a person that has done it and relapsed and done it," she admitted to host Andy Cohen. "But at least I’m trying."
