As we previously reported, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards, allegedly relapsed at daughter Brooke’s Mexico wedding this past weekend. Now things have gone from bad to worse with a new report claiming that Kim’s alleged relapse may threaten to her future freedom. Eyewitnesses report, Kim was either on high on drugs or alcohol and Kim’s behavior was so ratchet, her daughter, Brooke, has cut all ties with her mother. Brooke vowed she won’t speak with her mom again.

Supposedly, Richards’ attorney was in the process of negotiating a plea deal in connection with her drunken rampage arrest in April. Earlier this month, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office moved to criminally prosecute the RHOBH star. Richards was formally charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a cop.

According to the Beverly Hills police department, officers responded to reports of a possible fight at approximately 1:30 am on April 16. Hotel security reported that an “intoxicated female” — Kim Richards — had caused a disturbance at a hotel restaurant and was asked to leave. While being escorted from the hotel, Richards asked to use the bathroom, then refused to come out, according to the police report.

Officers forced entry to the bathroom and promptly took Richards into custody shortly after 2 am. “Ms. Richards was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior cursing at the officers and passively resisted arrest,” the police report indicated. After being transported for booking, police say, Richards “kicked one of the officers in the leg.” Richards was issued a citation and released. She’s due to appear at the LAX Superior Court on June 10.

Since being criminally charged, Richards’ attorney has been in talks with the DA to get his client off the hook, using her rehab staycation as leverage but her recent stint in Mexico may thwart all efforts,

“Kim would have had to successfully complete rehab, and the charges would have been dismissed,” an insider told Radar. “The Beverly Hills Hotel didn’t want to proceed with charges if Kim was getting help. With Kim relapsing, the deal is now on hold, and the D.A. will most likely want a much longer rehab stint in exchange for the charges being dropped.”

It’s beyond comprehension that Kim’s family would support her leaving rehab to attend a second (showy and unnecessary) wedding almost guaranteeing her relapse. And as if Kim’s troubles were not enough, reports claim Kim’s MIA somewhere in Mexico, leaving her friends and family worried.

“Friends have been frantically calling Kim since hearing she had fallen off the wagon. Everyone is very concerned about her. It seems like no one knows where she is,” an insider said.

    No one knows where she is? Doubtful. She would standout like a roach in some milk if she was still down there. All the money that was floating around at that wedding, she’s got enough to live comfortably and quietly for a long while.

    • Goo Goo G’Joob

      ITA! Some sites are speculating that since Paris and Barron both missed Nicky’s princess bridal shower, that perhaps those two escorted Kim to another rehab at that time. I do know Kim gives the appearance at times that she worships Paris, but I’m not sure it’s genuine enough to the point Paris would be able to convince her to move to a stricter, more stringent rehab. Kim is probably at home, hiding under her blankets with Kingsley and a fifth of Smirnoff’s.

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        True dat… being as the spa-hab wouldn’t allow Kingsley to visit Kim and chew on the other residents who were seeking treatment for their addictions, I would guess that Kim is with her doggie-son, Kingsley, who no one is allowed to talk about.

  • Jennymckitty

    Usually when these stories come out, Kyle will tweet a response saying it’s BS. Either Kyle is completely staying out of Kim’s business or this is, at least, partially true. I read another account that said she was messed up most of the weekend but was sober at the wedding and part of the reception. This story makes sense to me. I think Kim is way nastier when she sobers up after using.
    Does anyone know what happened to the oh-so-lovely Conrad that inspired Kathy’s desperate tweets for the family to call her? That situation is so odd. Why didn’t Kathy go to the wedding? Was she babysitting Conrad?

    • Goo Goo G’Joob

      There was an item, on Radar I think, that Conrad’s former girlfriend had taken out a restraining order on him and had stated that Conrad was threatening suicide when he spoke to her. That boy is a big ol’ mess.

      • Jennymckitty

        Thanks Goo.

    • RubyT

      i read somewhere that kathy stayed home to care for monty, who was planning on attending, but was too ill to travel.

      • Dee Enko

        I’m not so sure Monte needs 24-7 care. For a while Monte was going back and forth from Kathy’s and Las Vegas. Of course he may be too sick to do that anymore. However, they certainly could have hired a nurse or a whole team of medical staff. Kathy seems to miss a lot of affairs when it comes to Kim’s and Kyle’s families.

    • Dee Enko

      Actually they did catch up to Kyle on the streets of BH, shopping of course, and they asked if Kim went back to rehab. Kyle said “that was the plan.” They asked how Kim was and Kyle admitted that she hadn’t seen her since the wedding. I really believe Kyle is done. She’s fed up and has had enough of Kim’s lying and lying for her. I don’t believe Kyle will be telling the story to the tabloids or anything, but I don’t think she’s going to go out of her way to cover up and lie for her anymore. FINALLY!

      • Jennymckitty

        i saw that as well. She looked uncomfortable and answered the questions evasively. I agree. I think Kyle is done. I do think that if Kim was back in rehab, Kyle would have said something vague about it.

  • Livie1

    I wonder who Kim was released to when she was taken into custody by the BHPD after the incident at the hotel bar? Does anyone know? Just curious.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Supposedly a “sober coach” who quit during the wedding and left. I haven’t read the name of the coach.

      • Dee Enko

        Kim didn’t have a “sober coach,” which in itself is a joke, until after she went on the Dr. Phil show and then entered a sober living facility. How in the world she was able to skip detox and rehab is beyond me. I can’t imagine all these supposedly intelligent, knowledgable people actually believed that she had just relapsed. They even caught her son who lives with her saying as much at the show when they thought they were in private. How these dummies can forget their miked up is both funny and sad.

    • Dee Enko

      She was released on her own recognizance. Of course this was AFTER she spent the night in the cell sobering up. She wasn’t formally charged until some time later.

      • Livie1

        Dee, was she driving then once she was released from the pokey? That’s what I was wondering, how she got back home from jail, where was the car she drove drunk in to the hotel.

  • Livie1

    I’m thinking Kim’s more and more resembling Amanda Bynes than Lindsay Lohan at this point (well adding a few decades of age of course in both cases; Kim ain’t no teen or twenty-something.) But this is more like a mental disorder at this point. Fueled by alcohol, granted, but still, something is way way off with that woman. Who hides out in Mexico except fugitives from the law and as far as I know Kim hasn’t been declared on of those…yet!!!!

    • Dee Enko

      Kim has not aged well AT all. Of course it’s understandable. Few serious alcoholics and drug users do. I can’t imagine what her insides look like not that I want to.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    There is NOT one good picture of Kim Richards in her adult drug life…she looks like a fuckin moron is EVERY picture!!!

    • Marsbars09

      LOL! I just posted a similar comment.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    If the family didn’t receive a ransom note yet then I would check every bar in Cabo starting with Vicky’s hot spot, Andale…

  • Marsbars09

    Avigail, thank you for stating the lunacy of the Richards-Hiltons in even allowing Kim to attend the wedding. They are all nuts! Posters have been getting on my case for dare stating that Kim’s family are nothing but enablers.
    And in the above pic Kim looks like she’s holding onto life.
    I don’t see a good end for Kim.

    • Just a jersey girl

      Well said, having a second wedding a year latter is lunacy as well

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        Well, a lot of people get married in a court room, then throw a “real” wedding with pomp and circumstance later. I don’t have no problem with that. 😀

      • Dee Enko

        This wedding was the FIRST wedding. They likely had already paid for everything or at least a good portion. The wedding in BH was the quickie wedding because Brooke found out Monte may not live to make it to her wedding in Mexico and she wanted her father to walk her down the aisle. It’s understandable that Brooke and her fiance would want to have their dream wedding as originally planned. His family deserved it as well.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Allowing her? She is an adult, who makes her own decision. You know dang well, even if they asked her to stay, she would still go. Yes, they are enablers, I totally agree, but what could they do? Have bouncers at the door not letting her in? She would have caused a scene outside the door too. I have been saying all along they all need to cut ties with her in tough love. I know how hard it is but at this point it might be the only thing to sink her in skull.

      • dj j

        Yes, they should have had a bouncer to not let her in if she showed up, and told her that they would, so she wouldn’t. They should have said, Mom if you leave rehab to go to my wedding, you are not allowed there..and I will not be a part of your life until you get it together. if the entire family did that, she would hit bottom quicker. It isn’t going to be pretty, but she may end up alive. Right now, her odds aren’t good.

      • Dee Enko

        They didn’t have to agree with her attending the wedding. If she truly was in a sober living facility, they could have told her if she left, she couldn’t come back. They didn’t have to get her a sober living coach to chaperone. They could have at the very least suggested she not attend.

        Her family were extremely enabling. Covering for her, lying for her, etc. etc. etc. Many people were actually BLAMING the family for not doing MORE for Kim. Blaming Kyle for not being there for her. Even her kids weren’t doing enough for some. That’s just plain ignorant.

    • dj j

      the entire family needs to go to alanon. I remember Kathy Hilton enabling Brooke (Charlie Sheen’s crack addicted ex).on Paris’ reality show.

  • Sandra Oh

    Honestly I stopped caring awhile back. There’s only so much eye rolling u Can do before it gets old. She loves the attention from all this and damn the consequences.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Exactly. Perfectly said Sandra.

    • Dee Enko

      I seriously doubt she loves the attention. She’s an addict. She doesn’t like being accused of being an addict when she’s lying about being sober for so long. No way she loves THIS kind of attention.

  • WestCoastFeed

    I thought I read that she checked herself back into rehab.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      Where did you see that? I haven’t seen anything all week indicating that she is back in rehab.

      • I haven’t read that anywhere either.

      • WestCoastFeed

        It’s not a show that I pay much attention to. I may have misread something.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    I love that photo. I always laughed when Kim would go on her tirades about, “I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t smoke” etc etc. How many times have I see Kim, Kyle and Brandi with their ecigs in cars. Not that I care, it is just one of many lies Kim throws out there.

    • Dee Enko

      E-cigs is NOT smoking. It’s vapor. My cough is completely gone from smoking and my lungs are as clear as before I started smoking. I switched to vaping four years ago and feel fantastic. It wouldn’t have any effect on her pneumonia.

      I do agree that Kim is lying and has been lying since she’s claimed to be sober. She has never had the mindset of a reformed alcoholic/addict. She was still in denial and blaming everyone else for the reason she drank. She was still lying, getting her meds mixed up in France when she was out of it? Then she had the NERVE to call out Lisa V. like Lisa just accused her of murder. A reformed addict wouldn’t be that defensive. She would understand why Lisa may have thought that and would have appreciated her concern.

      • Rochelle Barozzi

        I know. I Vape.

      • Livie1

        Dee that’s a good point about Kim never really ever showing the mindset of a reformed alcoholic/addict. You’re right, she never did, and the denial/blame thing was the clue.

        I have no knowledge of the e-cig thing but I’m glad it helped you.

  • Sophia Z.

    And now Kim is missing. What else will she do for attention?

    • LMAO! I know this is not suppose to be funny but you can’t make this stuff up.

      • Sophia Z.

        No, you couldn’t make this up in a million years. I just wonder who is funding the mini vacation from rehab. Kim can’t afford it. I bet she flew to another country.

        • Dee Enko

          She’s in Mexico which can be very inexpensive IF you don’t stay in the super touristy areas. She didn’t have to fly to another country, just further into the country and away from the coast.

          • Sophia Z.

            Thanks, Dee. I have traveled extensively throughout Mexico since I was a kid and it sounds like you may have also. I’m very familiar with the prices down there and know that it can be inexpensive. I don’t think that is her agenda though. No matter where she goes in Mexico she will stand out like a sore thumb. That is why I am suggesting she went somewhere else.

  • It’s only a “relapse” if you’re sober, right? When has Kim given us a reason to ever believe she was sober in the first place?

  • colleen

    Kim didn’t want to go to rehab anyway so the family isn’t responsible for her falling off wagon. Kim’s “love” for kids, dog and Monty are B.S. she’s MIA without any of them

  • Livie1

    My dog is smarter than the entire extended Hilton/Richards clan. He is more pleasant too.
