If asked back, Kim Richards will return for the sixth season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The reality TV star is willing to go forward with filming even though she is still feuding with sister Kyle Richards.
A source tells Radar Online that although Kim Richards has numerous family issues going on in addition to her fight with Kyle, including one of her children being hospitalized for psychiatric care, her motivation for wanting to return for next season’s RHOBH is money.
“The feuding with Kyle doesn’t seem to faze Kim at all. The show is also only her only source of income, and Kim has bills to pay.”
The source also tells Kim’s source of strength behind wanting to continue airing her dirty laundry on camera is her newfound friendship with Brandi Glanville. Since she has Brandi in her corner, Kim feels she no longer needs Kyle Richards as a source of support. However, on Tuesday night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle informed her sister that Brandi Glanville was also questioning Kim’s sobriety and the need of an intervention. This is a no-no as Kim Richards has repeatedly insisted that her cast mates should not discuss her sobriety. Kim told Kyle if Brandi was truly talking about her issues behind her back, she will be “heartbroken,” but she did not indicate whether she will be as angry with Brandi as she has been with her other co-stars for butting into her business.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the Richards sisters are still feuding, even though filming for this season has wrapped. The source tells Radar Online the continued drama between the sisters will be good for ratings next season; however, Kim Richard’s sobriety has also been a focal point this season and this part of her storyline has apparently become tiring to some of the cast. In her Bravo blog posted after Tuesday night’s episode of RHOBH, Lisa Rinna shared what she thinks of the subject of Kim’s sobriety or lack thereof.
“This is the last thing I want to be talking about, but the forbidden situation keeps on being brought up, so here I am, rehashing the d*mn thing again. Just like you, I want to stab myself in the eyeball with a chopstick over the whole nightmare and just move on already.”
Whether Bravo producers will even ask Kim Richards back for the sixth season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is still up in the air. Although there have been hints that both Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna will be asked back, there have been no reports on whether Kim will be asked to return to the show.
