E! News says that after Kim Richards, formerly of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the little blonde girl in Escape to Witch Mountain, was arrested for allegedly committing a low-budget Winona Ryder by stealing cheap crap (more on that in a second) at Target, she spent some time in a hospital for reasons unknown. Kim was later released and was seen out in L.A. on Saturday.
UsWeekly co-signed E!’s story and also said that her family are the ones who urged her to check into the hospital since she’s obviously in a bad, bad way. Radar says that Kim’s family is taking a tip from Daddy Spears’ handbook titled “How To Get Your Loved One Together Before Shit Really Gets Serious” by considering a 5150 hold. Kim recently spent time in rehab and she claimed she was sober, but a source says she’s definitely off the wagon.
TMZ has more info on Kim’s act of thievery at Target. In my first post about this situation, I said that she got caught with 77 items, totaling around $600, in her cart. But Kim apparently had over 100 items in two carts. The report from Target security says that Kim strolled into the Target in Van Nuys, grabbed a bunch of reusable bags and filled them to the top with shit from the dollar section. Kim threw all the bags into a cart and rolled passed the express checkout line where she told that cashier she had already paid. Kim didn’t stop there. She grabbed another cart, filled it with toys and beauty products and once again rolled it through the express checkout line. Kim pushed the first cart out of the store and made it 3 feet before security got her ass. Security held her on CITIZEN’S ARREST until the cops arrested her. She spent one night in jail before she was released on $5,000 bail.
TMZ has pictures of all the loot Kim tried to take and also a picture of her that security took. In that security picture, Kim looks plastered out of her mind and like she’s trying to stay standing as the room spins.
The dollar section at Target is a black hole that slowly sucks in all your money, but Kim took it to a whole new level. Judging by the picture of all the stuff she tried to take, it looks like she stole the entire dollar section including all the Lisa Frank stickers. The only people who fill their cart with that many Lisa Frank stickers are: someone who is high out of their gourd and is letting out a cry for help, a 6-year-old who just won the lottery and me the day after pay day.
