Kim Richards was supposed to have a hearing in the Van Nuys court house today to explain her lack of compliance with her probation on the Target case. The word is, that as of last month Kim had not made enough, or perhaps any progress regarding her community service/labor or her AA meetings. I think she may have had another date on Wednesday in Beverly Hills.
Apparently, asking someone to go to The Valley (GASP!) to hang out in the courthouse at 8:30 am and give a detailed report is akin to Chinese water torture or something. I was unsuccessful in my efforts and it doesn’t seem as though TMZ sent anyone either. I’ve been waiting all day to hear something. In fact it was the main motivation to open the laptop today.
I am starting to doubt that she showed up. If I had to make a guess, I say one of her lawyers showed up to file for an extension. Or maybe something happened and no one cares. A few years ago when a housewife was in court, any post about it drew a lot of views. The last report on Kim’s court issue got mediocre attention here. It’s so common place for a housewife to be in legal trouble these days, we barely report it.
Technical Note: I THINK the mobile device commenting issue may be fixed. I’ve been working on it all day. I hope it works, but let me know either way. It seems that the mobile plugins (and other stuff) on JetPack revert to the default settings when there is a major WordPress Update and I have to go in redo all the settings. How convenient!
I am going to try to hit the broad strokes of this “Secrets Revealed” since I doubt there will be any secrets revealed. Let’s find out!
Secret: Kyle didn’t consult LVP about building her closet. Because Faye Resnick was doing it. Though LVP tries to say Kyle did consult her and Kyle placates her with some nods.
Not so Secret: Porsha is a handful. Kyle keeps her busy will all sorts of lessons, horseback riding, piano, and acting. However, this doesn’t stop her from spending $10K plus on coins for Kim Kardashian’s stupid app. This was a major news story here locally, the app apparently requires a credit card number and the “coins” that the kids then buy to keep spending in the stores are VERY expensive. Portia is not disciplined for anything.
We saw Kim visit Kyle in Palm Springs. Apparently when they were young they used to play “store.” Kathy would take their real money for things around the house and then sell them to them again later.
Not so secret: Swans are mean. We are treated to footage of one of the swans biting both Ken and Lisa. This is old footage.
Secret: LVP makes Ken get botox. She’s says he is 70 and if he doesn’t need now, then when? Never. He’s 70 for fucksake.

This afternoon Kim’s attorney came to court and admitted Kim doesn’t have proof of compliance with the court order. The judge withdrew the warrant and set a new court date for June 3rd. That is odd because last I heard she already had a court date for June 1st. Maybe that was with the Target judge. Anyway, she has 30 more days to attend as many meetings and do as much community service as possible. Delay, deny, lie, cry. etc. This is all Rinna and Eileen’s fault!
TMZ is now reporting that a judge (probably the one that handled the Beverly Hills case) has issued a bench warrant for Kim Richards. “9:40 AM PST — The bench warrant has now been signed by a judge. Bail was set at $26,000.” A bench warrant is an arrest warrant issued by a judge, usually for failure to appear in court. It could also be issued for failure to provide evidence of complying with the court’s order.
Usually with a bench warrant, cops are not sent to your door to arrest you (though I suppose the judge could ask for that if he was pissed off enough about the situation) and you can just come in and pay your bail and a new court date is set. The situation with the two cases and the two judges and two plea deals that seem to be allowed to be completed concurrently make this whole mess very confusing. The judge in the Target case should have given a sentence separate from the first one. Now we have one judge saying community labor and the other saying community service. Either way, I don’t think she has does much of anything to comply with either court.
It’s really NOT time for a Kim Richards update, but you will see a lot of them today because tonight is the season finale of The Mother Daughter Experiment and certain large tabloid sites always seem to have a post about nothing to coincide with certain TV shows. It’s almost like they are paid to do so. UPDATE: It appears that Kim’s dramatic hospitalization on the finale may not air. It’s not on the Lifetime schedule for tonight and there is nothing on the site about when it will air. To me this is the most important part of this post!
Today’s big story is essentially “Kim could get arrested if she doesn’t complete the terms of her plea deal.” Well, of course she could. But they are not going to show up at her Westwood apartment with an arrest warrant. She already has a hearing set on June 1, 2016 to show she has been compliant with the terms of her probation as stated in her plea deal. Which it certainly does not seem like she has been compliant at all.

As we saw on the reunion she is “keeping her recovery private” which is pretty much the opposite of any AA guidelines I have ever seen. She also still blames Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson for her situation rather than being remorseful and apologizing to them for her destructive behavior that concerned and disturbed them. She also didn’t show any remorse for all she has put Kyle and her family though.
Once again, I have blocked this hot mess of a season out of my mind. With three franchises of housewives going, we all seem to be suffering from housewives fatigue. The RHOBH however are not fatigued at all. LVP has taken time away from her pet cause of regulating the dietary habits of a small Chinese village to get into it with Eileen on Twitter. Eileen told LVP to get a conscience after LVP suggested Eileen get a life. It was all very “Fix that body! Fix that face!” Since the last episode I have blocked an estimated five hundred LVPlunatics who gleeful drilled me down to discover that my commenters paid for my lawyer in the Sheree Whitfield lawsuit and the fact that I think it is poetic justice when someone who lives off of millions acquired by knowingly selling snake oil to cancer patients then gets cancer and needs appropriate treatment. Shocking secrets all.
So let us gird our loins and prepare for LVP to cry and play the victim role and Andy Cohen to drag an alcoholic back on stage and interrogate her about “her lowest point.” That question to Kim can’t help but make me wonder what Andy Cohen’s lowest point was? I’d say the way he is treating Yolanda and Kim on this reunion has to be a major part of his moral abyss.
We begin with Yolanda storming off the set in tears. Daisy is in the makeup room to dry Yolanda’s tears. Erika goes back to the couches to fight for Yolanda’s honor. Yolanda comes back out. Andy asks Yolanda who she believes. Yolanda says she has a history of manipulating people to make a good storyline and it’s possible that LVP said that. Rinna walks off yelling at LVP to “own it!” Eileen chimes in.

I believe that I have adequately expressed each week what a huge trainwreck this show is. It’s so bad I’ve wondered if they would even air all eight shows. It’s basically just pairs of mothers and daughters where pretty much one of each pair gets drunk (or secretly high) and brawls all night long after a fake therapy session. I have become accustomed to this pattern only being interrupted by the fake crying sounds of Courtney Stodden. If this was an actual therapeutic environment, someone would have taken the alcohol away from Heidi and Natalie long ago. Someone would have stopped Natalie from sending the sane young woman in the house into a full blown panic attack.
But it is not a therapeutic environment. It’s a modern day side show of freaks and geeks thrown together to maximize and glorify disgusting behavior. This week, the much anticipated reuniting of Dourtney happens. You may remember this delightful May December marriage from Couples Therapy when they were vilified and ganged up on by everyone else in the house. At that time, Courtney was underage and could not stay in the house do to child filming laws in California. She was also fresh off of cheating on Doug on live feeds of Big Brother UK. Other than the season with Taylor Armstrong and the pea green towel meltdown, it was the best season ever. Couples Therapy does trainwreck much better than this show.
I was more surprised than usual to see this show in my DVR tonight. I think I am getting old timers because every damn day I have no idea what I am supposed to recap until I look at what the DVR is going to record. At some point this week I forgot all about the reunion and actually thought it was all over. I think that is because we have talked this season to death. I’ve written a million Yolanda posts and almost as many Rinna Posts. Over the season I have read more about Lyme disease, Chronic Lyme Disease (or the lack of such a thing). neurological Lyme Disease and whatever other names and co-infections and whackadoodle treatments Yolanda came up with and how that affects her impending divorce. I think another reason I feel like we have already done this is that they put out so many clips and pictures. I am disappointed we are not starting backstage.
We start with someone asking where Kathryn gets off telling Eileen to spend 10K on handbags. Kathryn says maybe on three and they are investments. Kyle says she has some of her mother’s and will pass them down. Look Andy, enough with the softballs questions about ponies and handbags and sunglasses.
Time for an Erika package. Andy calls LVP out for wearing the same Tom Ford dress that Erika wore in her talking head. LVP points out that Erika just wore the top and she has the dress. Oh Pinky and her pitiful one ups. I am not a fan of any of the dresses on that couch, but it is the best dress LVP has ever worn to a reunion. She usually looks very matronly. Erika talks about how much Tom’s partners in the firm and their wives hated on her every day when she first got married. I have literally seen every moment of this reunion so far on the Internet. Everyone sucks up to Erika. Then Andy starts subtly pushing some buttons Erika doesn’t with to respond to, “submissive,” “traditional marriage,” Yolanda jumps in and sort of veers the topic off to Erika Jayne. Erika Jayne’s face briefly registered that she did not appreciate the assistance, then she moved on to not answer catsuit questions. Erika Jayne is handling her first reunion like a seasoned pro.
