The wild and crazy story of Real Housewives’ Kim Richards is a history of pain and abuse. While there’s some truth to the rumors surrounding Richards, many are based on wild generalizations and hearsay.
Grief has been a major factor for Richards. In 1991 Richards’ fiancé was murdered in the San Fernando Valley. He would have been her third husband so perhaps it was easy for the world to write off the loss, but for Richards it was a big one. She was on the phone with her fiancé at the time of his murder.
Richards has had many mental breakdowns and heartbreaks in public. These things are gold for those looking to spread rumors, but the truth is often pretty different. At one point someone mentioned that Richards was “homeless,” but the star wasn’t living on the street — she was staying in a $400 a night hotel.
One true event was Richards kicking a police officer back in 2015. She wound up with 450 hours of community service, but she was able to get some help.
It’s hard to say whether the “train wreck” persona is 100 percent true or is part of the Real Housewives franchise giving their cast members distinct personalities. Nonetheless Richards has had many real struggles — particularly surrounding alcohol. Her sobriety remains in question though cast members have spoken of her remaining sober after her 2015 police officer incident.
So how does an aging child star with such a small criminal record make so many headlines? Well, nude pics always help! But there is no evidence online to support that any nude photos were leaked of Kim Richards even if that’s what the rumor mill has reported. So let’s have a look at some of her happy times instead.
