Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is reportedly in denial about her exit from the Bravo reality show. On July 22, Radar Online revealed the troubled reality star, who was fired from the series following a dramatic arrest in April, had yet to grasp the idea of not returning.
“Delusional Kim believes she is going to be asked back by Bravo. According to Kim, there are also multiple acting gigs lined up, but she offers no details on what those jobs are.”
Following her arrest, the Real Housewives star entered rehab, but left early to attend her daughter’s wedding in Mexico. Once she was out of the country, Richards reportedly indulged in more alcohol, and missed her deadline to return to said facility. A short time later, once she returned to Los Angeles, Richards entered a second facility, and later, a third (Richards remained at the third facility for 30 days before returning home).
Since retuning to Beverly Hills from the Malibu treatment center, the Real Housewives star has been seen at celebrity hotspot Madeo Restaurant, where she was photographed by paparazzi and questioned about her sobriety.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Real Housewives star is said to be “upbeat” after her rehab exit, but also concerned about her financial state. Earlier this week, a source revealed the following to E! News in regard to Richards.
“Kim is upbeat, but uncertain about her future. Since leaving rehab, she’s been staying with Kathy and Rick [Hilton]. But she needs to find her own place to live soon. Financially, she’s stressed. Without her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills salary, she’s going to have to figure something out. There have been small roles here and there, but she needs money.”
In addition to possible financial strain, Richards has reportedly failed to attend outpatient care in the week since leaving the treatment facility. According to a Radar Online report, the Real Housewives star has skipped four meetings thus far, and is believed to have no plans to reenter treatment in the near-future.
“[Kim Richards] has not been back to the center and has not been doing her outpatient therapy. She has already missed four sessions. The rehab program directors are just assuming that [Kim Richards] isn’t returning to treatment there, and no one is going to chase her down and try to force it on her.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 is currently in production and expected to premiere on Bravo this winter.
