Reality Check For Reality Star Kim Richards
Bravo TV reality star, Kim Richards, is getting a pretty major reality check.
According to E! News, Richards, 50, who stars on the hit show Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will not be invited back on the show next season – as a full-time housewife that is. Richards has been a cast member on the show since 2010. Neither Bravo nor Richards has released a statement regarding the matter.
While Richards, a former child star, is best known for her erratic behavior, conflicts with other cast members – including her own sister Kyle – and her very public struggle with alcohol addiction, the most recent season of RHOBH seemed to be the final straw. Richards behavior this season had cast mates and viewers questioning her sobriety, but she insisted – in an always quite combative nature – that everyone had it all wrong and that she’s been sober for years.
Well that story changed in April when Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and later charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery of a police officer to name a few. She later appeared on the Dr. Phil Show with three of her four children, where she admitted to Dr. Phil McGraw that she wasn’t being honest with everyone in regards to her sobriety and that she did indeed have a problem. “I did have drinks a couple other times over the past few months. It was wine. I was ashamed to say anything at the reunion, embarrassed. I would have loved to say to the girls, ‘You know what, you’re right,’ but the way they were coming at me they didn’t make it easy,” she told McGraw. Kim ended up storming out of the interview after thinking McGraw and her kids were really trying to hold an intervention, but did check into a facility days later.
Not too long after checking into a rehab facility in Malibu, Richards was granted a pass to attend her daughter Brooke’s May 23rd wedding in Mexico, which sadly ended up turning into her latest headline-making disaster. Richards was reportedly under the influence when she caused a complete spectacle at the event.
Niece Paris Hilton, posted a photo of Kim looking nothing but happy at the wedding. Sadly we now know things weren’t as hunky-dory as they appear to be in the pic.
Two weeks after attending the wedding, the star has now checked herself into a new treatment facility.
Best wishes to Kim and her family!
