A source close to Kim's family reportedly told Radar Online that Kim won't be appearing on the show with the rest of her cast because she's embarrassed by the announcement she has a "drinking problem" at the end of the Beverly Hills season.

“She’s not doing Ellen because Bravo aired that she was an alcoholic on the reality show and she didn’t want that to be made public,” the source reportedly said.

Part two of the reunion episode airs on Bravo tonight and will reportedly address Kim's alleged "drinking problem" which her sister Kyle Richards discussed in the final Real Housewives episode.

Perhaps she feels discussing it once is enough?

But according to Radar Online's source, the problem is bigger than that.

“She’s not willing to admit she’s an alcoholic," the source reportedly explained to Radar Online. "That’s why she left rehab after one week.”

“Her family and friends have tried to help her and she’s not willing to accept the help, leaving everyone in her family in peril because of her stubbornness,”the source adds. “Her daughters have been trying to move out of their mom’s house because the drinking is that bad.”
