LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Kim Richards’ future with RHOBH is in question. Recently LALATE exclusively report that the Richards is an alleged liability to RHOBH after her dog attack brought the show’s production company into litigation with a victim. Then after Richards’ arrest for allegedly drunk belligerence against a Beverly Hills Police officer, LALATE exclusively reported that Richards’ return to the franchise could be in jeopardy if she refuses rehab or comparable new treatment. Now, LALATE can report that BravoTV fans are demanding NBC to fire Richards, not just for the above events, but for her still refusal to enter rehab treatment. Richards has chosen instead to enter a Dr. Phil studio.
Kim Richards behavior on the NBC Universal Real Housewives of Beverly Hills 2014 season exhausted many viewers due to her lack of a storyline. Many thought Richards would not be invited back this season. But Richards was rehired, prompting many to wonder if Kyle Richards has been season to season demanding BravoTV to rehire her sister in exchange for Kyle returning as well.
But during the 2015 season, fans were horrified by the lack of apparent realism by the “Real” Housewife as to her scenes, filmed and aired. That came to a boiling point during the RHOBH Part 3 reunion when Kim passed off her dog’s attack on Alexia Umansky, Kyle’s daughter, as hardly anything. An entire cast was left a gasped when Kim Richards claimed Alexia Umansky’s horrifying injuries, that left her hospitalized for five days, and on IV for a month, were just a mere little dog bite.
After that reunion aired, Richards got arrested for being allegedly drunk and belligerent against multiple Beverly Hills officers. And rather than release a statement indicating that she was seeking new treatment to deal with her issues, Kim Richards has allegedly refusing to enter rehab. Rather Kim Richards entered a Dr Phil studio instead.
Fans are furious with Andy Cohen, BravoTV and NBC Universal for their refusal to fire Richards for continued deviance against treatment. “Tanya Chauvin tweeted Andy Cohen “Can you please fire Kim Richards now?” Rob Rosen wrote “Kim Richards is destroying the RHOBH franchise with her irrational and vicious mood disorders. For the sake of the show, fire her.” Tamra tweeted to BravoTV ” You need to either let Kim Richards go (fire her) or keep her off the show for a while to give her time to REALLY clean up her act! ” Steve Sugarbaker added “Nothing about watching Kim Richards’ life implode is fun, Bravotv. Fire her, hope she gets help and move on”.
