It's been two weeks since Kim Richards was arrested for causing a drunken scene and kicking a cop, and while it looks like she'll manage to avoid any serious legal trouble, things aren't exactly coming up rosé for the boozy Housewife.

First, there were rumors that Bravo execs told Kim to go to rehab, or else she'd be fired.

After showing some serious reluctance, she complied, and now, just days later, there are reports that Richards is planning to ditch rehab

It's possible that Kim is suddenly unwilling to remain in treatment because she's caught wind of the rumor that producers are planning to fire her from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills whether she sobers up or not.

“The producers of the show have already started looking for her replacement," a production insider tells Radar Online.

“No one knew whether or not Kim was going to adhere to their guidelines and remain completely sober. She gave so much fuss about the sobriety clause they added that to ther contract that there was really no way of knowing her next move.

"Ultimately, they don't really care all too much if she stays or goes. She would not be the first prominent Housewife to get the axe, and she certainly won't be the last.

"The higher-ups know that the audience wants something different, anyway. The fans are growing sick of the same storyline with the same players."

Yes, Kim, it looks like you may lose your cushy gig even if you manage to stay sober.

It's important to bear in mind, however, that your family and friends are probably also "growing sick of the same storyline," so you may wanna finish out that rehab stint for their sake.
