E! News reports the 50-year-old reality star will not be returning as a full-time cast member on the sixth season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Sources connected to the show say it’s possible she may make a few appearances or a cameo, but she will no longer be a regular.

While the fate of the rest of the housewives have yet to be determined, E! reports most of the women are expected to return.

Richards has been a pivotal character on the RHOBH series since the show’s first season in 2010. However, her constant struggle with alcohol addiction has caused major conflict for her both on and off screen.

She was arrested in April at the Beverly Hills Hotel after a drunken altercation with the police and later charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery upon an officer.
