Brandi Glanville is totally holding back an "I told you so" -- in a preview clip from the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" finale released to People magazine, Kim Richards tells Andy Cohen that she's an alcoholic. It's no secret, for those of us who slobber over the every move of certain reality TV stars (no shame!), that Richards checked herself into rehab in December. But while we've no doubt speculated about her reasons for being there, we haven't had confirmation until now.

Richards wasn't available to tape the reunion show with the other ladies (rehab), but she did sit down for a one-on-one with Cohen. In it, Cohen confronts Richards about the details of her stint in recovery.

"Can you tell us what you sought treatment for?" he asks.

"Yeah," she says, "I'm an alcoholic."
