Everyone likes a good dose of reality TV drama, but Kim Richards' personal drama might be a little too serious for Bravo.
Kim Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel Polo Lounge for refusing to leave the restroom and kicking a police officer.
Now, the producers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are giving the former child actress an ultimatum.
According to a Radar Online, “Producers are going to give Kim an ultimatum – go to rehab, or else!’
A source claims that the producers “held an emergency meeting” Thursday afternoon. They are concerned that the 50-year-old Richards relapsed and is going to be a liability.
“They called together all of the higher-ups because they needed to discuss Kim’s future involvement with the show,” the source says. “She has now become a liability and she needs to get help.”
Richards has been in recovery for alcoholism for the past few season of the show, and she has even opened up about her struggles with the disease.
Her recent behavior on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and in recent media has been questionable. So much that even Lisa Rinna claims Kim is a drunk.
Kim’s sister and fellow co-star, Kyle Richards, has also been urging Kim to come clean about her relapse.
“Kyle has been saying that Kim needs help for months and she wasn’t shocked when she learned she got arrested. She wants their sister Kathy [Hilton] to help convince Kim to get treatment and to face her issues. She isn’t talking to Kim right now,” the source claims.
Kim and Kyle’s relationship has been strained over the years. And it seems that Kyle isn’t ready to mend things until her sister gets the help she needs.
