RHOBH fans have reportedly seen enough of the troubled Kim Richards. According to an April 21 report by LALATE, RHOBH fans are calling for Richards to be fired — unless she agrees to go back to rehab.
The report claims RHOBH fans have contacted NBC, demanding Richards be removed from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, not only because of her recent relapse and arrest, but also because she has failed to enter treatment to address her issues.
In addition, RHOBH fans were reportedly unimpressed with Richards’ behavior throughout the recently-aired fifth season of the show. In addition to taking pain medication, which she was not prescribed, Richards shockingly blamed her niece for her dog Kingsley’s attack.
As RHOBH fans saw on the show, Richards, whose niece was hospitalized and underwent multiple surgeries, blamed the child for prompting her dog’s viscous attack, and offered no apology for the incident. Although Alexia Umansky, the daughter of Richards’s sister, Kyle, was clearly badly injured by the dog, Richards seemed unconcerned, choosing to instead tell her co-stars Umansky would have never been attacked if she had acted calmer around the dog. Richards even went as far as to claim Umansky suffered only a “little bite” on her finger, when in fact she was on an IV for a month, and nearly lost her finger.
RHOBH fans are said to be “furious” with Bravo, NBC and Andy Cohen for their alleged refusal to get rid of Richards. Below are a few of their comments, via LALATE:
“Can you please fire Kim Richards now?”
“Kim Richards is destroying the RHOBH franchise with her irrational and vicious mood disorders. For the sake of the show, fire her.”
“You need to either let Kim Richards go (fire her) or keep her off the show for a while to give her time to REALLY clean up her act! “
“Nothing about watching Kim Richards’ life implode is fun, Bravotv. Fire her, hope she gets help and move on.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Richards recently turned down her chance at going to rehab for free, which is sure to further peeve RHOBH fans. According to a Radar Online source, Dr. Phil offered to pay for Richards’ rehab stay after she appeared on his talk show to discuss her April 16 arrest.
“Dr. Phil offered to send her to rehab, and said he would take care of the expenses. It was extremely generous, and a facility was picked out by Dr. Phil. Kim was blown away by the gesture, but didn’t immediately agree to go.”
The source claimed Richards, who remains at odds with RHOBH fans, didn’t want to miss her daughter’s upcoming wedding.
