Kim Richards Rehab News: Sources Confirm ‘RHOBH’ Star Checks Into Rehab, Is Bravo Still Planning To Fire Her From Show? [VIDEO]
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has finally checked herself into rehab after she relapsed and got arrested for public intoxication two weeks ago.
On Saturday, TMZ announced that the reality star moved into a live-in facility in Malibu that specializes in substance abuse. As a result of her arrest, Richards has managed to land her self in some pretty serious trouble after kicking a Beverly Hills police officer, and she may even be getting the boot from Bravo.
Last week, Reality Tea reported that an insider close to the production team revealed that Richards hasn't been sober in the last five seasons, she's just gotten better at hiding it.
Sources close to show producers also told TMZ that due to the reality star's substance abuse issues, executives believe she's a liability to the network and she may be fired from the show.
"There are insurance issues with the show, and serious concerns that if something happens to Kim, Bravo could be on the hook for keeping her on such a contentious, demanding show," TMZ reported.
While a final decision has yet to be made, various parties from the network have already met to discuss the severity surrounding the drama and the idea is definitely on the table.
