"She obviously got really upset because he has been battling cancer and she was very worried about his condition. She demanded that she be allowed to use the phone to call him, even though they had been told they wouldn't be allowed access to anyone who is not filming."

The source said the production team decided to make an exception for Richards, due to Brinson's health issues. He posted a note on his Instagram page about his condition, saying it was a "life or death" situation.

"I have had two setbacks in the last months," Brinson wrote.

"I'll explain in upcoming post. I'm in the hospital. First of all the fight with lung cancer I'm beating that fight," he wrote. "The setbacks concern life or death. Another battle I'm fighting I'm not a quitter and no matter what you go through don't be a quitter."

The source told that Richards' phone call with Brinson was "good for her and so no one held it against her. They had to let her make the call. But of course they're worried about her sobriety if anything truly bad should happen."
