The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" has a special meaning for Kim Richards.
Kim's sister – and current "Housewife" – Kyle Richards revealed on SiriusXM's "The Jenny McCarthy Show" that Kim, 54, credits the show to save her life and help maintain her graciousness.
"I would love to see Kim back," said Kyle, 50, referring rumors that her sister is in talks to come back to season 10. "The audience loves her and you know she has a lot in she's got two new grandchildren actually. "
She went on:" If there was anything on the show, she made her responsible and she says it too. She says it saved her life because you know that there is nowhere to hide, and everyone knows ̵
Kyle revealed in the show first season (2010-2011) that Kim was an alcoholic, causing family drama to come to light at the show's reunion. Kim and Kyle's roller coaster conditions played out until Kim left "RHOBH" in season 5 (2014-2015). She occasionally makes cameos on the show.
In 2015, Kim was arrested after a "drunk rage" at the Beverly Hills Hotel in April. She was arrested again in August for shoplifting on a local target.
She was convicted of performing 450 community hours, attending 55 AA meetings and setting a three-year probation for the crimes. Her trial was lifted in September 2018.
