“This has been the darkest part of my life,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 50, mentioned on the Friday, February 11 episode of E!’s Daily Pop. “Just the most desperate, most afraid I’ve ever been in my life. Most unsure, most volatile.”

I think it would be a bad legal story and I think it would have gone away, [but] I do think that because I am on a reality TV show, it is magnified. I think that because of what I’ve done professionally, it is magnified.”
