It's not surprising that emotions ran high at last night's taping of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show.
What is a bit surprising, however, is the fact that not all of the drama surrounded Yolanda Foster and her many feuds, as the ladies were reportedly stunned when a familiar face made an unexpected appearance on set.
If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you know that Kim Richards only made a few appearances this season, so it's somewhat surprising that she showed up for for the reunion special.
According to Radar Online, Kim didn't have to think twice about making a cameo, as she's broke and desperate to re-join the cast.
"Kim was paid to do the reunion, so she agreed to do it," says one insider. "She wanted to be paid to do Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live last week, but was told no."
Yes, considering her many Richards many legal woes and recent stint in a high-end rehab facility, it's not surprising that Richards is hard-up for cash.
Fortunately for her, in an ironic twist of fate, the same issues that drove her to rock bottom might help her win her old job back.
Her problems may be sad, but they make for compelling television, a fact that the show's producers are well aware of.
