Just when Kim Richards seemed to be getting her life together, she's in trouble again! An L.A. County judge issued an arrest warrant for The Real Beverly Hills star after she was caught skipping mandatory A.A. meetings in relation to her 2015 shoplifting arrest, RadarOnline.com has learned.

A source close to Richards, 51, told Radar, "Kim has not been coming at all to the meetings in West Hollywood for quite some time. She used to attend daily.

According to the insider, "Her friends and sober family started to worry about her when she stopped returning people's phone calls several months ago."

"Eventually, her recovery friends just gave up. It works if you work it, and she clearly did not want to do the work," said the source.

As Radar reported, Richards self-admitted alcoholism led to her being fired from RHOBH after an altercation at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge last year.

After countless attempts at rehab and an intervention by Dr. Phil, the former reality star was then arrested at Target for shoplifting and was required by an L.A. judge to do 30 days of community service and to attend 52 mandatory A.A. meetings.

She was supposed to appear in court in L.A. yesterday, but when she did not show the judge issued the warrant and set her bail at $26,000. However, since she showed up today, she won't be jailed just yet.

She'll face the judge again for her probation violation in June.

Story developing.
