Kim Richards may have told Entertainment Tonight that Bravo producers had contacted her people regarding a possible return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but according to an August 23 report by iDigital Times, Kim Richards is not returning for Season 6. Her sister, however, has been filming with the rest of the cast for the last two months.
Although Kim Richards has allegedly been fired from the series due to her multiple relapses and arrests, sister Kyle was seen filming with her co-star, Lisa Rinna, on Saturday. In photos shared by the UK’s Daily Mail on August 23, Kim Richards’ younger sister, Kyle, was seen with a camera crew outside of a clothing boutique in Los Angeles. Both Kim Richards’ sister and Rinna wore black dresses during their outing, and appeared to have a good time with one another.
Kim Richards had starred alongside Kyle on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the last five seasons, but then, earlier this year, she became a liability for producers after suffering a relapse after years of recovery.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Kim Richards told Entertainment Tonight she could be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 6, while a source told Radar Online she hadn’t been invited back to the reality series.
“No one here asked Kim Richards to come back on the show. That is false. Producers were done with Kim during her last relapse when she flat-out lied to them by telling them that she had not relapsed when she actually had … No one wants to work with someone like that. You cannot bite the hand that feeds you and that is exactly what she did. She lied to everyone and no one buys a thing she says anymore.”
Kim Richards was arrested in April after she allegedly became intoxicated at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Following her wild night out, Kim Richards was charged with public intoxication, resisting an officer, trespassing, and battery on an officer. Months later, in early August, Kim Richards was arrested for a second time and charged with petty theft after she reportedly stole over $600 worth of merchandise from a Target store in Van Nuys, California.
Since her second arrest, Kim Richards was reportedly hospitalized at least once, and has also been rumored to have returned to rehab. However, with no comments from Kim Richards about the issue, her whereabouts are currently unclear.
