In early December, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kim Richards checked into rehab for a second time. According to sources, the former child actress has had troubles with alcohol for years and her return to treatment wasn’t shocking.



Now, Kim’s ex-husband Monty Brinson — the two were married in the 1980s and he is the father of Kim’s daughter Brooke — is revealing the reasons behind Kim’s return to rehab.

Brinson tells Life & Style that Kim “wanted to get better for herself, her children and her family." In fact, Monty said watching co-star Taylor Armstrong get help after her husband’s tragic suicide in August showed Kim how vital proper treatment is.

While Monty didn’t reveal how long Kim plans to stay in the treatment center, he does say she’s hopeful she’ll start a new life once she’s out.
