Kim Richards Reportedly Charged with Multiple Crimes After Drunken Arrest
Bad news, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans: your girl is in even more trouble.
According to TMZ, the Los Angeles County District Attorney has slapped the 50-year-old reality star with charges for public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery on a cop.
Richards, who checked into a live-in facility in Malibu that specializes in substance abuse (aka. rehab) just over two weeks ago, could pull a Teresa Giudice and face two and a half years in jail. As TMZ notes, that’s the “worst case scenario.”
Shortly after her Apr. 16 arrest, Richards sat down with Dr. Phil for a little chat, as people sometimes do when they have a run-in with the law.
“I was angry and frightened and I was scared,” she said on the show, which included a brief walk out by Richards. “I knew what I had done. The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink.”
