Kim Richards has been a mess over the last year. Her downward spiral began last season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but has been ongoing for the last 18 months or so. From falling off the sobriety bandwagon to being arrested twice within weeks, Richards hit rock bottom. Instead of returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she chose to tape a new reality show. There have been a few cameos from Richards on the Bravo show this season, but nothing that would bring in a paycheck. Now that things seem to be sorting themselves out, Richards is ready to jump back into full-time housewife status.
Just recently, Kim Richards attended the taping of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the reunion show. It has been public knowledge that Richards has remained friendly with Yolanda Hadid and Brandi Glanville since exiting the show last season. According to Radar Online, Kim Richards wants to return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the paycheck. There are bills that need to be paid, and Richards is accustomed to a certain lifestyle. Currently, she is airing on a Lifetime reality show, but that will be over shortly. Without returning to Bravo, Richards will be lost.
During the reunion taping of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim Richards attempted to get Lisa Rinna riled up. There has been an ongoing feud between the two. While in the beginning Rinna had pure intentions about being concerned with Richards, she is still taking digs at her this season. The two will likely never be able to move on from what happened last season, and that is likely for the best. Richards was intent on making a good impression at the reunion, especially since she wants her job back. If she can bring the drama and make the show more interesting, the chances that Bravo will take her back for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season will rise.
While Kim Richards may make for great television, her attitude and flight or flight response has been a problem. Back when she appeared on Dr. Phil, Richards decided to walk off set and cause a big scene because she didn’t like what was happening. According to E! Online, Kim Richards wanted to leave her new show as well. She was forced to partake in a faux funeral, and it was uncomfortable. Richards immediately wanted to bail, but eventually stuck it out for her daughter. This came at a time when Monty Brinson was going downhill regarding his health, and Richards was uncomfortable facing her own mortality. The fact that she stayed showed how far she has come in the recent months, though there are still some issues that need to be worked on.
Fans would like to see Kim Richards return, if only to work on her relationship with Kyle Richards. The sisters have always had their ups and downs, but the recent falling out was brutal. When Richards appeared last year on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, there was a lot of animosity between her and Kyle. They were having their own family dispute over a dog bite, but it went much deeper. Just weeks after that was taped, Richards was arrested for public intoxication. The downward spiral was happening, but rock bottom was still a few weeks away. Now that Richards has rebounded from falling off the wagon, things seem to be falling into place. Kim Richards wants her job back on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills full-time, and she is willing to do just about anything if Bravo will take her back next season.
