Kim Richards appeared on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live last night and during her appearance, she addressed her sobriety.

This morning, December 3, The Huffington Post recapped the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's visit and spotlighted her special message for fans.

"I feel like I have a lot of people that are holding me accountable and it’s helping me a lot," Kim told Andy of her sobriety. "I love doing this show and I love all the people, and I love when I walk down the street and people come up to me and say, ‘Because of you, today I am sober. Thank you so much.’"

Fans watched as Kim spiraled out of control on the first and second seasons of the show, but by late 2011, Kim had had enough and opted to seek treatment for her addiction issues. Ever since, she has been clean and sober and will celebrate two years of sobriety this Christmas.

While being sober is certainly what Kim needed in her life, some fans wondered whether or not she would be as entertaining on the show once she got clean. Luckily, she has and last month, Wetpaint Entertainment reflected on what she brings to the table.

"Kim Richards has raised eyebrows with her always-surprising comments over the years, but we wondered if the wacky moments would cease now that she's completely sober. Thankfully, she’s as hilarious as ever. Case in point: Kim has done everything this season from accidentally falling out of her chair while reenacting Lisa’s faint, to calling Yolanda Foster’s face 'icky.' Yep, the Kim we know and love is still here!"
