Kim Richards Steps Out Hours After Arrest – RHOBH Offer Support
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards was seen stepping out after being arrested for public intoxication and resisting arrest. Hours after her arrest Richards was spotted leaving her home dressed casually in a plaid shirt and baseball cap. The Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed that Richards was arrested after they responded to reports of a fight at the Polo Lounge inside, the Beverly Hills Hotel. Her arrest followed a confrontation that included her kicking an officer in a leg and resisting arrest after “displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior.”
There are reports that the housewife was pushed to the brink after watching the three-part reunion special though throughout the season some of the other housewives had worried about her sobriety. In an explosive reunion Kim confronted fellow housewives Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson after their repeated attempts to address her sobriety. She made repeated claims that she had been sober for three years.
Kim has spoken about the stress she has been under. While caring for her ex-husband, diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, she has also been planning her daughter Brooke’s wedding. Adding to her stress was a very public breakdown in her relationship with sister, Kyle Richards, after a tumultuous season that included battles with just about every housewife. The sisters confirmed that they stopped speaking after Kim’s dog attacked Kyle’s daughter, requiring surgery though both have acknowledged the difficulties go further back.
Though there is no official word from Bravo, a few of the housewives expressed their concern via Twitter. Despite being a constant thorn in Kim’s side, Eileen Davidson sent out a supportive Tweet saying, “I feel badly for Kim Richards and her family my thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.” Lisa Rinna also took to Twitter to say, “I was very sad to hear about Kim’s incident and I wish her and her family the best.”
There is no official word from Kim’s BFF Brandi Glanville though she added her own cryptic Tweet, “Real friends are their in the good times, the bad times & especially the worst times. I am blessed with real friends & am a real friend myself.” No word yet if that was directed at anyone in particular though it doesn’t look as if the turmoil between the housewives is going to end any time soon.
