Just a couple of weeks ago, Kim Richards, formerly of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, told Entertainment Tonight that she loves being sober and her time in rehab really helped her get right back on the wagon. Well, it looks like the wagon crashed into a Target causing Kim to fly off and land into a pair of handcuffs. TMZ says that Kim was arrested over the weekend after she was accused of stealing $600 worth of stuff from a Target in the Valley. If you’re picturing Kim trying to sneak out of Target with a cartload of booze, her ex-husband Monty wants you to pop that thought bubble right away. Monty tells ET that it’s obviously a big misunderstanding. Monty says that alcohol didn’t play a part in Kim’s alleged theft and her shopping cart was filled with toys.
On Sunday night, a Target security guard busted a CITIZEN’S ARREST on Kim Richards after she allegedly tried to leave the store with 77 items totaling $600. The Van Nuys Police Department picked her up and she was booked into jail at 7:30pm. She posted $5,000 bail the next day and was released. TMZ wasn’t sure if she was under the influence at the time of her arrest, but a source said she was acting weird. It gets more sad and worse.
TMZ also claims that Kim is homeless and has been living in her car. Ever since she got out of rehab last month, she’s been hopping from house to house and that would’ve never happened if Kyle Richards didn’t steal her house. When family members and friends closed their doors to her and refused to let her stay with them anymore, she moved into her car. Kim was allegedly living in her car at the time of her arrest. Kim has apparently been “self-medicating” again and her family doesn’t know what to do.
Kim was arrested back in April at The Beverly Hills Hotel after she caused a drunken scene and kicked a cop.
Last night when this story broke, some people on Twitter were wondering how in the hell did Kim Richards manage to fill her cart with $600 worth of stuff from Target. Those people have obviously never been under Target’s spell. They have never fallen deep into the T-hole. I go into Target telling myself that I’m only buying floss and I walk out with $125 worth of crap. Target has powers. As soon as I walk in, I blackout and I wake up in the parking lot with three bags full of four kinds of floss, candles, boxed wine, candy, random greeting cards and cat toys (and I don’t even have a cat).
And as for who paid Kim’s bail, don’t be too surprised if you hear it was a bald bag of smugness who was seen rubbing his hands together while thinking about his next exclusive interview with her.
