Kim Richards is spiralling out of control. The former child star and “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” alumni can’t continue down the road of drugs and drink much longer. She is exhibiting signs of mental illness similar to Bipolar disorder with an inability to control impulsive behavior. Kim can no longer care for herself and is reportedly living out of her car. Perhaps Dr.Drew or Dr.Phil can step in since they both love exploiting famous addicts? It’s not the ideal situation for Kim, but what else is there? Her family can no longer cover up “the family secret” and has refused further help. Let’s hope someone intervenes before it’s too late.
Page Six has more on the situation in today’s news.
Kim Richards was arrested for attempting to steal more than 100 items from a Van Nuys, Calif., Target, including coloring books, Animal Crackers, Scotch glue, colored pencils, stickers, a Conair mirror and gloves.
“Richards was caught by store security attempting to take more than 100 items valued at approximately $612,” a spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office told Page Six Tuesday. “They were in the shopping cart and she was not concealing them. She just rolled out.”
She was charged with one count of petty theft.
The retailer’s security also snapped a photo of the 50-year-old, who has been battling substance abuse in recent months.
Richards wore a white hat with a leopard print strip, wire frame glasses, diamond hoop earrings and a dull plaid shirt.
After spending the night in jail, Richards posted $5,000 bail and pled not guilty to her shoplifting charge. She has a pre-trial date set for August 20.
