The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Kim Richards Arrested For Shop-Lifting, Is Living In Her Car!


The rich and the famous of Beverly Hills have a dramatic life indeed.  The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills produced by Bravo shows the life of the real housewives of the city and the series never fails to bring in some top notch drama.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has already been removed from the show because of her alcohol addiction. She has unsuccessfully spent stints in the rehab, but hasn’t been able to make the most of them.

The latest new coming in about Kim Richards is that she had been caught shop-lifting items worth more than $600 from Target. She was walking out of the Van Nuys shop with the goods in her target when she was stopped by the security guard. A Los Angeles based attorney informed US Weekly that most of the items that Kim had taken were toys.

Kim Richards was immediately arrested and she spent the night in custody at the Valley jail. Daily Mail reported that she paid the $5000 fine the very next morning.

Her ex-husband and lose friend Monty Brinson has stood by her, stating that the arrest was an episode of misunderstanding. While talking to Entertainment Today, he said that the truth will come out soon.

At the time of arrest, it is believed that Kim Richards was living out of her car. Since she was axed from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she couldn’t afford the posh rented villa and had to give it up.

She was putting up with friends and family, but none of them could be with her for long and hence Kim Richards is now homeless and facing lawsuits. Even her half sister Kathy Hilton, mother of Paris and Nicky Hilton have given up on her.

Bravo had been planning on showing her the boot for a very long time now, but there were claims that Kim will sober up and be more active in the shooting of the series.

However, Kim never tried to tackle her alcoholism and drug problems and neither did she make any attempts at changing her demeanor and Bravo finally decided to axe her from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6.

Kim Richards started her career as a child artist and has done several television series over the course of time. Richards’ problems started when in one of the episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills she looked completely inebriated. When asked about it she said that she hadn’t been feeling too well and had taken some medicines for bronchitis.

Next Kim was arrested from a posh Beverly Hills hotel where she was creating nuisance after being drunk. The police had to be called in and she was dragged out of the washroom. She even assaulted an officer on duty and was booked for it.

This incident was a supposed wake-up call for her. She was on the verge of losing her career as Bravo didn’t want an alcoholic person on board their reality television series. Kim didn’t want to let it go so easily and begged and requested the producers to let her in and give her another chance and thy finally complied.

In a post-arrest tell-all, Kim Richards teamed up with Dr. Phil and confessed to lying about not drinking and she also confessed that she occasionally has pot. Kim blamed her alcohol and drug problem to her troubled family life. She said that the arrest was a much-needed respite for her because she could just be away from everyone and rest.


  1. Poor Kimmy, outta the frying pan into the fire. Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get any worse then this happens!
    Well, you know what they say, there’s only one way to go when you hit rock bottom and that’s up!
    Hopefully this will be behind you in no time! Once you get this all settled out you should ask about doing another “Witch Mountain” and I’m almost certain that the Bravo producers will be knocking at your door begging you to come back and rejoin the fray!
    You go girl!
