The RHOBH Season 6 cast may not include Kim Richards. According to a report by Classicalite on May 30, Richards is in jeopardy of being fired after reportedly refusing to return to rehab after daughter Brooke Brinson’s wedding.
Although the RHOBH Season 6 cast won’t be announced until later this year, prior to the show’s premiere, rumors have been circulating regarding Richards’ role on the show since she relapsed months ago.
In April, following a relapse months prior, Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Bravo is unhappy with Richards for refusing to return to rehab, and considering cutting her role from the RHOBH Season 6 cast. Last month, a source revealed the following to Radar Online.
“Things do not look good for her returning to the show now. Producers want to give her the ultimatum that if she doesn’t return to rehab by the end of this week that it’s over, but they have not been able to reach her.”
In the same report, a source confirmed Richards’ whereabouts were still unknown, nearly one week after Brinson’s wedding took place.
In addition to the possibility of losing her role on RHOBH Season 6, Richards may have also blown her chances for a plea deal in her upcoming court case. According to a Radar Online source, the reality star and mother of two likely could have had her charges dismissed if she completed rehab, but now that she has not, the outlook on her case is far from ideal.
“Kim would have had to successfully complete rehab, and the charges would have been dismissed. The Beverly Hills Hotel didn’t want to proceed with charges if Kim was getting help. With Kim relapsing, the deal is now on hold, and the DA will most likely want a much longer rehab stint in exchange for the charges being dropped.”
The RHOBH Season 6 cast remains unknown at this point, but last month, during the NBC Upfront, fans got a major hint at half of the ladies. On the red carpet, while announcing the upcoming program lineup for Bravo, Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, and Kyle Richards were seen, hinting they will likely be involved in the RHOBH Season 6 cast. As for the rest of the women, including Yolanda Foster, Brandi Glanville, Eileen Davidson, and Kim Richards, their part in the RHOBH Season 6 cast is unclear.
