According to TMZ, the LA County District Attorney has charged Kim Richards with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a cop – all charges resulting from her rampage earlier this year. I guess the DA was unimpressed with Kim’s performance on Dr. Phil. Worst case scenario for Kim is up to two and a half years in jail.
Kim claimed that she was driven to drink by watching footage of the Beverly Hills reunion and seeing nasty comments about her behavior on twitter. After that she downed two inches of vodka, got in a car, and pulled into A BAR when she began to feel the effects. After dropping her purse off at her REGULAR table she started talking to a “girl” who she thought she recognized, but actually didn’t know. When asked to settle down, she resisted, leading the staff to call the police. Of course she only remembers bits and pieces, but wanted viewers to know that she didn’t order a drink IN THE BAR. Which – if you believe her story – meant she was driving with so much alcohol in her system her buzz lasted for hours!
Kim appears to be at some sort of sober living facility, but photos of her are popping up everywhere. It’s almost like she enjoys being in the spotlight. Well, she’ll get her wish as the paps will go crazy covering the next phase in her saga. Hopefully Bravo will wash their hands of her!
Meanwhile, Kyle, Lisa V, and Lisa R are in New York for the Bravo Upfronts along with dozens of their fellow Bravolebrities. Missing from the list is Brandi Glanville. Fingers crossed no one will cave and allow her back on the show.
