The gals of Hollywood’s glitziest zip code are back on Monday with new episodes of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and former child star siblings Kim and Kyle Richards are spilling on the upcoming season.

Considering the first two seasons ended with her in rehab, Kim Richards was rightly concerned about returning for Season 3 and addressing her struggles with addiction on camera, but she tells “Access Hollywood” she’s sober now and hopes her battle will inspire viewers.

“Recovery is a difficult process for anybody to go through. I think going through recovery in the public [eye] is definitely a lot more pressure. When one goes through recovery anyway, your family is watching and it’s something that’s difficult, but when everybody is watching it’s definitely more difficult. But, I think it also helps me to remember that there are eyes on me as well,” Kim told “Access.”

“I ended Season 2, I went into treatment and I thought, ‘This is just me now. I’m going to get well and this is going to be for me,’ and then I felt like so many people watched me struggle. I wanted people to see that if they were struggling as well, that this would be chance to see that if I can do it then they could do it too,” she added.

As we head into the new season of the Bravo show, Kim has the full support of Kyle, as the sisters are back in each other’s good graces, after a rough and tumble falling out.

“We have our moments, we are sisters,” Kyle says, “but I’ve come to a point in my life where I realize we’re probably always going to be like that…”

“We have good days and bad days,” she continues, “we are absolutely polar opposites of each other so we clash at times, but we’re at a good place right now.”

Season 3 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” premieres Monday, Nov. 5 at 9/8c on Bravo.

As for what viewers can expect on the third season, Kyle says, “Oh my God, drama, problems, glamour, fun … you name it, we got it.”
