Kim Richards, star of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” is said to have secretly left her beachside Malibu treatment facility. Kathy Hilton, sister of embattled star, shared a picture on her Instagram just days after the Apr 16 arrest for trespassing, public intoxication and assaulting a police officer at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel.
The photo, featuring Kim, daughter Brooke and Kathy, was taken at Brooke’s bridal shower during an apparent day pass. In the caption, Hilton wrote, “With my beautiful sister and niece @kimrichards11 @brookewiederhorn so happy for you and Thayer ! Wish you both a long life together xoxo Aunt K.”
But has Kim left the facility for good? As you know, Kim reluctantly agreed to go to rehab after an embarrassing episode on the Dr. Phil show. Multiple sources are saying that Kim has permanently left rehab, including former friend, Kay Rozario, (80) winner of the court case against Kim’s pit bull, Kingsley.
In the past Kim has said that she would check out for a short time to attend her daughter Brooke’s wedding, but maintained that she planned to return to rehab after the wedding. According to sources, not so now. Bravo has previously stated that they will not renew Kim’s contract unless she completes the full stay. Additionally, if found guilty, Kim could face up to two years in jail.
