Although Kyle Richards told Wendy Williams on January 3 that her sister Kim Richards was still in rehab, only a day later Rumor Fix is reporting that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has completed treatment. It’s been nearly a month since Kim checked into rehab on December 5, and there were reports that she left and then returned to the facility only a week ago.

According to Rumor Fix, Kim will continue to seek help at the Betty Ford Clinic’s aftercare program, which allows her more free time and the use of her cell phone. The child star has been admitted to treatment facilities several times in the past, and her ex-husband Monty Brinson told Life & Style that this time Kim wants to get better “for herself, her children, and her family.” Kim’s RHoBH’s co-star Brandi Glanville accused her of using crystal meth and Kyle Richards called her sister an alcoholic during a dispute in Season 1. Kim admitted to taking a number of prescription medications but not to abusing them.

We wish Kim luck and hope she continues to improve.
