We have all seen the countless shows, comedy skits, and news reports making fun of or just downright laying out the embarrassing facts of the “Real Housewives” shows and the cast members. And here we are again with the latest headline “Kim Richards Arrested For Public Intoxication”. This is not Kim Richards’ first time in the headlines for this type of behavior. Richards has struggled with alcohol for years and has let it be known on several occasions.

In 2011, Richards checked into rehab after her problems with alcohol were continuously showing up on the aired show “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”. While of course the show is known for housewives with expendable time and money getting out of control, Richards seemed to be a little further down a dark path then the rest of the cast at times. Richards appeared on an episode of “Watch What Happens Live” in 2012, where she openly admitted, “I’m an alcoholic.” This show was aired after her time in rehab in 2011, so she clearly did not continue upkeep with a sober life after leaving rehab.

Kim Richards arrested for public intoxication, among other things, was arrested early Thursday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The arresting officers responded to a call around 1:30 a.m. in regards to a fight. The police reported that Richards was allegedly drunk and refused to come out of a hotel bathroom. There were also reports stating that Richards was slurring her speech and acting belligerently, according to the arresting officers.So how did this all begin? Apparently, the beginning of this train wreck began in the hotel’s renowned Polo Lounge. Richards was drinking in the lounge earlier and was asked by the restaurant’s staff to leave because of her behavior. Hotel staff say she was acting unruly and bothering other guests. When the arresting officers arrived at the scene, they found Richards locked inside the bathroom. Richards locked herself inside the hotel’s bathroom when she was asked to leave. The arresting officers asked Richards to come out of the bathroom several times, but she refused. The officers were forced to drag Richards out of the bathroom and place her under arrest.

Richards was taken to a local jail and charged with trespassing, being intoxicated in public, resisting arrest, and battery on a police officer. Yes, you read that correctly. While being booked at the police station Richards kicked one of the police officers. The police state, “Ms. Richards was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior, cursing at the officers and passively resisted arrest.” The statement continues with, “After being transported to the station for booking, Richards kicked one of the officers in the leg; however the officer was not injured.” Richards was issued a citation, and was released after sobering up. Hopefully she will seek the help she needs, because her current lifestyle will not lead to anything positive.
