Kim Richards has reportedly grown frustrated with her rehab stay — and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been in treatment for less than one week. According to a new report, Richards is unhappy with the rules of her rehab facility and wants to be reunited with her pit bull, Kingsley.
“[Kim Richards] pitched an absolute fit!” an insider told Radar Online on April 29. “She wanted to leave for a few hours to go home and check on Kingsley. Kim even asked a staffer if Kingsley could be brought on the premises to visit! She was told no, it wouldn’t be permitted, and she threatened to leave again. She is fighting the process.”
Kim Richards’ pit bull has been in the headlines since late last year, after he attacked the daughter of Kyle Richards, Alexia Umansky. In early November, Kingsley bit Umansky leaving her hospitalized and in need of multiple surgeries. Kyle even claimed her daughter nearly lost her finger.
Following news of Kingsley’s attack on Umansky, another woman, 80-year-old Kay Rozario, came forward, claiming she was also attacked, and filing a lawsuit against Kim Richards.
Despite her pit bull’s attacks, Kim Richards chose to keep the dog after briefly sending him away for training, and now, he’s in the care of her cancer-stricken ex-husband, Monty Brinson.
“Monty has assured Kim that Kingsley is being taken care of, and is getting enough exercise.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, this isn’t the first time Kim Richards has reportedly threatened to leave rehab. According to a Radar Online report from earlier this week, detox was “brutal” for Kim Richards, and the reality star nearly returned home after feeling pressured into treatment by Dr. Phil.
“[Kim Richards]’s detox was extremely brutal, and she kept saying she wanted to leave. Kim is blaming Dr. Phil for ambushing her during the taping. With her kids there, Kim felt increased pressure to go. She is blaming everyone and anyone for the current situation, including her arrest and rehab stay.”
Kim Richards was arrested on April 16 at the Beverly Hills Hotel after suffering a relapse a few months ago. During her night out, Richards reportedly disrupted hotel guests, refused to leave the area and kicked a police officer, which led to charges, including public intoxication, trespassing, resisting, and officer and battery on an officer.
Kim Richards’ return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has yet to be confirmed.
