Kim Richards

Here’s a not-so-shocking headline for you this morning: Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards Arrested for Shoplifting! 

According to reports, Kim was arrested on Sunday night after store security at Target in Van Nuys busted her for shoplifting a cartload of goods value at $600! 

TMZ says that the reality star, who just got out of rehab, was out on $5,000 bail as of yesterday morning.  We don’t know yet who put up the 5K to spring her, but we’d bet that it wasn’t Kyle Richards

Kim’s ex-husband Monty Brinson is shocked at the news and believes it’s a misunderstanding. “I couldn’t imagine Kim stealing or shoplifting anything. She is a giver.  I am in complete shock. Guaranteed this must be some kind of mistake, and the facts will come out soon. She was arrested for shoplifting toys in a cart, but this was a clear misunderstanding. This was not alcohol or drug related.”

If you’ll recall, Kim was arrested in April after a drunken night at the Beverly Hills Hotel.  She rehab-hopped for a bit and left her latest facility just last month. 

UPDATE: TMZ reports that Kim is living out of her car and has been house-hopping but ran out of friends’ homes to couch surf at.
