Kim Richards may have had one hell of a tough year (Getting arrested for drunkenly shoplifting at Target isn't exactly the sort of thing you boast about in your annual Christmas letter), but the disgraced reality star is doing her damnedest to turn things around.
In fact, she's already back to doing what she does best - stirring up drama on Bravo.
Yes, as we reported earlier, Richards was a surprise guest at the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show, which was filmed last week.
Sources say Kim had two reasons for agreeing to make a cameo on a show that canned her at her lowest point.
For starters, Richards is desperate for cash.
In addition, she's hoping to win back her old job as a full-time RHOBH cast member, and she knows the best way to do that is by proving to reunion show host/series producer Andy Cohen that she still has some fight in her.
According to witnesses, Richards set her sights on Lisa Rinna and went to town.
“[Kim]lit into Lisa Rinna about comments she had made in the past, a production source tells Radar Online.
"She took exception to statements made that Lisa was scared of Kim. It was clear that Kim was hoping to get a reaction from Lisa."
Unfortunately, if she was spoiling for a fight, it seems Ms. Richards was barking up the wrong tree:
“But Lisa took the high road and refused to let Kim get the reaction she was clearly hoping for. Lisa apologized to Kim for any pain she caused her, which was the last thing she was expecting,” says the source.
Sadly, viewers don't tune in to see heartfelt apologies. Better luck next time, Kim!
