We can’t help but be just a little nosy (yup, we went there) when it comes to Kim Richards’ nose job, which was painstakingly documented in Season 3, Episode 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Radar Online recently reported that Bravo paid for the reality star to go under the knife, and that sister Kyle even recommended the doctor that Kim went to see.
But a behind-the-scenes source tells Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that the network definitely did not pay for Kim’s nose job.

“That’s not the kind of thing Bravo would ever pay for,” said our insider. “Kim paid herself.”

Whoever footed the bill, what’s clear is that Kim is happy with her new and improved schnoz.

“[E]ach time I make a change, it helps my sense of courage,” Kim wrote in her Bravo blog. “And it seemed exciting! A new nose to go along with all my new changes!”
