Kim Richards may have entered rehab, but according to an April 26 report, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star isn’t convinced she has a problem.
“She went because she got arrested, humiliated her family and wants to avoid jail,” a source told Radar Online of Kim Richards.
On April 16, Kim Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel where she reportedly downed several cocktails before being cut off by the resident bartender. After the staff member encouraged Richards to instead order a non-alcoholic beverage, she reportedly became irate and began disturbing other guests. In turn, hotel security was called and she was asked to leave the hotel’s Polo Lounge. When she refused, the Beverly Hills Police Department was called, and around 1:30 a.m., following a brief stand-off in a restroom, Kim Richards was detained.
Police claim Kim Richards then kicked an officer, which led to a battery of an officer charge, in addition to public intoxication, resisting, and trespassing charges.
After just under nine hours behind bars, Kim Richards was released and given a court date of June 11, when she will address the pending charges against her.
During an appearance on the Dr. Phil show, which airs tomorrow and was filmed last week, Kim Richards admitted to being drunk during her arrest.
“I was angry and frightened and I was scared. I knew what I had done — the whole night is my fault — none of this would have happened if I didn’t drink.”
However, when it comes to her treatment plan, Kim Richards is reportedly convinced that her dependency issues aren’t serious.
“Kim doesn’t think she has a problem…if this hadn’t happened it would be business — that is to say denial — as usual.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Kim Richards’ ex-husband, Monty Brinson allegedly admitted to giving her a Vicodin on Instagram, after being confronted by fans. According to an AllAboutTRH report, Brinson claimed he did so in order to help Kim Richards deal with pain in her back.
“I take full responsibility. That night she was in so much pain they demanded her to shoot. It was not a cancer pill. It was a stupid vicoden pill which people take for pain tooth aches. I would never give medication to anyone but as much I cared I hated seeing her in pain and thought it might get her through the shoot.”
At this point, it is unclear how long Kim Richards will remain in treatment.
