Kim Richards is rumored to be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — and according to a new report, Richards believes that she’s worth the big bucks.
Kim evidently learned that Lisa Vanderpump rakes in $2 million a year for RHOBH and Vanderpump Rules, and according to a snitch, believes that she is due for a healthy raise.
“She believes she should get $1.5 million per season, with additional money for appearing at the reunion,” an insider tells Life & Style.
The source also reports that Richards, 51, will remain in a “friends” spot for the upcoming season — a repeat of Season 6.
“She wouldn’t even make $150,000 for that,” says the insider.
Kim supposedly believes that with the exit of Yolanda Hadid, the show badly needs her to amp things up.
“Kim believes that there is simply no drama without her,” claims the insider.
Her younger sister and reality veteran, Kyle Richards recently remarked that the show is healthy for her sister — because the filming routine helps Kim to maintain her sobriety. Not surprisingly, Bravo isn’t buying what Kim is selling.
“Kim is absolutely delusional if she thinks producers are going to give her anywhere near Lisa’s huge paycheck,” the source explains.
After reading such a story, one’s first thought might be “Is this chick on drugs???”….but well, you know. Would you like to see Kim return?
