Apparently, TMZ didn’t get the memo that Kim‘s recovery is private, because they went and shared that bit of breaking news with the world. Somewhere, theReal Housewives of Beverly Hills star hissed, “Shut your f-ing mouth, TMZ! I’ve had enough of you, you beast!”
With 52 court-ordered AA meetings under her belt, Kim Richards appears to finally be piecing together some sober time. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (who will appear occasionally this season, but is not back as a full time housewife) has been in the public eye for her battle with alcoholism for…well, a very long time now. But is Kim truly turning over a new leaf?
After her drunken incident and arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel last April, followed by an arrest for shoplifting dollar items at Target in August, a judge ordered Kim to 52 A meetings, 300 hours of community service, and 3 years of probation.

TMZ reports that court documents prove Kim “has been steadily attending AA meetings since September.” But the judge is taking no chances on the You-Stole-My-House! Richards Sister. She’s been ordered to continue attending 1 AA meeting per week as part of her ongoing sentencing (duration unspecified).
No longer a full time RHOBH cast member, Kim will be making appearances now and then on the current season to give Kyle Richards a viable storyline. Kim is also slated to film another reality series with daughter Kimberly Jackson: a mother/daughter themed Couples Therapy-inspired show.
Entertainment Tonight describes the show, which will also feature former despicably desperate reality star Heidi Montag and her mother, as featuring “famous mothers and daughters who have faced public struggles and are going through counseling.” Should be interesting…or at the very least, comment-inspiring!

Kim‘s plea bargain included 30 days of community labor, but Kim’s attorney argued that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star wasn’t able to do manual labor because of a foot injury. <insert all the eye rolls here> Kim had until today to cough up a note from her doctor. Apparently, Kim failed to provide proof of a foot injury. Not to mention, the judge was probably like, if your foot is well enough to walk all over town in search of Xanax, your foot is well enough to pick up trash on the highway. Suck. It. Up. Buttercup.
The prosecutors offered Kim, who wasn’t in court, a deal that includes probation for three years, attending 52 AA meetings and 30 days of community labor. And she can’t be caught near the Beverly Hills Hotel. Kim’s plea deal isn’t 100% done yet, as there’s a glitch with the requested 30 days of community labor. Her attorney says she suffers from a foot injury and cannot do labor and would rather do community service.
