Kim Richards Begins Recovery Process

Kim Richards Begins Recovery Process

After being subjected to a “5150 hold,” reality programming star Kim Richards has been admitted into inpatient treatment in Orange County, the same location as her titular “Real Housewives” reality television series. A 5150 hold grants trained physicians a 72 hour window of detainment for the purposes of observing a patient. After the events of her detainment, Kim voluntarily checked herself into an Orange County medical facility.

According to Richards’ family, Kim had received an ultimatum to seek psychiatric care or suffer total withdrawal of finances from her kin. While this is considered to be a serious threat, Richards admitted that she finally sees the need to improve herself. Fans of the show may be familiar with Richard’s mental issues; including an arrest for intoxication in public at a hotel and charges of resisting arrest, trespassing, and assaulting an officer for allegations of kicking an officer. Another sign of trouble flared up in a second arrest for swiping more than $600 in merchandise from a Target store. While the recent case of petty theft is expected to be heard later today in court, it is unclear as to whether or not Richards will be making an appearance.
