Kyle Richards: Kim Is ‘Doing Really Well’ Post-Arrests and Post-Rehab

Kim Richards has had a very difficult year, but her sister Kyle says she’s doing great now.

Last night at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala in New York, in honor of their Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Yolanda Foster’s advocacy work, Kyle told People that her older sister is “doing really well – she’s doing really well right now.” 

The former RHOBH star was arrested in April at the Beverly Hills Hotel and in August outside of a Los Angeles Target for allegedly shoplifting. Following her first arrest, she checked into rehab, and subsequently left RHOBH as a full-time cast member. In September, she was sentenced with three years summary probation, 30 days of community labor, and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings for her April arrest.

The sisters reportedly had a falling out after her multiple legal and substance abuse troubles, but have since made up.
