Kim Richards has a lot of time on her hands to think about the mistakes that she made in recent months as she continues treatment at a Malibu rehab center. But a source close to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells that she is still in denial about how her erratic behavior in recent months may have led to her getting the axe from Bravo.

“Kim has been telling her friends in rehab that she was not fired from Real Housewives at all,” an insider tells “Pretty much no one believes her. Some of the things that she says, she just seem like she is in such denial.”

Following her arrest on April 16 at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills, Richards suffered one blow after another. The final straw in NBC’s decision to let her go came after she suffered another relapse while attending her daughter’s wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and did not return any calls and inquiries from the network for days.

As previously reported, Richards entered her current treatment facility in Malibu on same day that her lawyers were in court to fight charges that include public intoxication and resisting arrest. Insiders she had said that another stint at rehab would convince Bravo to save her, but that was not to be.

Said a network source, “Kim can paint it however she wants. She knows the truth.”
