Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast Reacts to Kim Richards’s Arrest
Kim Richards was arrested early Thursday morning (April 16) at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars have spoken out about the latest scandal. While Kim has been very forthcoming on the show about her struggles with addiction — even though she has insisted that she’s been sober for three years — it’s clear that the reality star is still battling the disease.
At the time she was arrested, Kim was “described as belligerent with slurred speech and reeking of a strong odor of alcohol,” E! News reports. She has been charged with public intoxication, trespassing, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer, and her court date is set for June 10.
“I think this is a cry for help,” Adrienne Maloof told E! News. “Right now Kim needs help. She and [sisters] Kyle Richards and Kathy [Hilton] are in my prayers and have my full support.”

It’s wonderful to see the cast supporting their co-star in spite of all the disagreements, fights, and drama they’ve endured together during the show’s five seasons. We hope that Kim receives the help she needs!
