Despite being close to Kyle Richards, Armstrong claims that she didn’t know that Kim had returned to rehab for a second time since starring on the reality show. Regardless, she says she supports her cast mate on the decision to get treatment.

“I adore Kim and I stand behind her,” Armstrong says. “If there's anything I can do to support her… But, if she's getting healthy, what more can we ask?”

Richards’ return to rehab wasn’t the only thing that was announced on Monday. News broke that Armstrong will be writing a memoir due out in February. On the Bravo talk show, she revealed why she decided to do it.

“The cycle of violence and domestic violence is so hard to understand and I wanted people to see me for who I really am,” she says. “And to understand this started at a very young age for me, because of my own flaws and my own insecurities -- and not because someone did this to me.”
