On Monday’s edition of Watch What Happens Live, Tom Arnold told Kim Richards that it was a good thing her battle with the bottle was documented on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as it provides a constant reminder as to why she should stay the sober course.
“The nice thing is you’re doing so well,” said Tom, who is also extremely open about being a recovering alcoholic. “You look ten years younger than when I first saw you on the show.”
He admits he’s analyzed old videos of himself as he struggled with alcoholism.
“There are videos of me before I got sober that are so horrible,” Tom said.

“I’m a DVD away from where I used to be,” Kim said, adding she loves her current life – one with a clear, alcohol-free outlook.
“People say it’s so tempting with your job … there is so much alcohol around, but all you got to do is pop in that DVD and look back — I’ve got all that footage,” the 48-year-old said. ”And this show actually has helped me … all these people out here, all these fans, have helped me stay sober.
“I’m so thankful.”
