Kim Richards escaped another trip to the pokey today as she successfully convinced a judge that she had made sufficient progress with her community labor and AA meetings. According to the TMZ story she went before the judge in the Target shoplifting case He seemed to be the more lenient of the two judges in the first place.
I previously posted that it seemed as though Kim was working with a wild horse sanctuary to clock her community service hours. It seemed as though she would be going to help with the Malibu sanctuary’s move to Oregon last weekend. As it turns out, Kim simply went to say good-bye to the horses before their departure.
Also, there has been some confusing reporting on the actual amount of time she needed to serve for community labor. I looked back at the original report and the ruling was for 300 hours. It was also reported as “30 days” which is not how the sentence is generally measured. It is measured by hours so that the time can be measured in any hourly increments. I find the current report by TMZ to be a bit inaccurate.
Kim Richards continues to have a lot of legal issues to resolve. From the latest dog bite case just last month, to her two criminal cases that remain open pending her compliance with her plea deals, you can bet that someone is shelling out some big bucks on attorneys fees.
Back in late April, some six months after her first sentencing took place and five months after her second, a bench warrant was issued for Kim due to failure to produce any evidence of compliance with her plea deal agreement. Her lawyer went to court and admitted there was no proof of compliance and a new hearing was set for the first week in June. I heard nothing about that hearing actually occurring and feel like the date was likely pushed again. At issue were Kim’s community LABOR and AA meeting attendance.
One of Kim’s judges, the one in the Beverly Hills Hotel case, was adamant that she complete thirty days of community labor and not community service to be ensure that Kim “have some actual consequences.” The hold up seemed to be an agreement as to what could count as her “labor.”
White Party time!
Wednesday night was the annual filming of The White Party for the upcoming season of RHOBH. The White Party has almost always been held at Kyle’s house except for that one year that LVP hosted it and Adrienne got self tanner all over her furniture. But this year LVP has decided to have a huge blow out at PUMP to maximize advertising for the business. She even got the Dail Mail to sponsor it and made sure that E! News was there on the red carpet to interview her. She made sure to use that opportunity to tell everyone how she really wasn’t coming back for another season but Bravo just begged and begged and so here she is again. I’m always amazed that these women think anyone believes that kind of malarky and then more amazed to see the roaming LVP trolls on Twitter that buy it hook, line and sinker.
We learned a lot of things from all the interviews. First of all there appears to be a lot of harmony amongst the girls. The long rumoured casting of Dorit Kemsley as LVP’s new puppet for the season was confirmed. Kyle, Dorit, LVP and Erika Jayne are all on the same team. And Kyle says Kim is coming back, because it’s good for her sobriety. Oh Kyle, still enabling and denying. Sigh.
In other news, David Foster was there and all cozied up with LVP. She sure seems to like hanging out with Yolanda’s ex husbands.

Update: E! is reporting that Kim’s son Chad Davis was also at Kyle’s house and let the dog out of the bathroom where he was being restrained deliberately and said something about someone getting bitten if everyone doesn’t leave. This makes no sense to me, and there are some inaccuracies in their story, so who knows. Why would Chad be there if Kim was getting ready to film? Why would Kim be getting dressed at Kyle’s in the first place? So much of this story doesn’t make sense.
Update 2: TMZ has the opposite info about the bathroom saying that the victim was afraid of the dog and hid in the bathroom and was coaxed out of the bathroom after being reassured the dog is fine. This is an odd story.
On Thursday July 7th, a friend of Kim Richards, Paige Elizabeth Sanderson, filed suit against Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Bruce London in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault, battery, and gross negligence after being brutally attacked by Kingsley. According to The Wrap, Sanderson was invited by Kim to meet her at Kyle’s house last April to help her get ready to film a RHOBH segment of some sort. Kim brought Kingsley with her to Kyle’s home.
Already I have so many WTF type questions. Kim still has Kingsley? Wasn’t he supposed to be off with a trainer? Kyle agreed to let Kingsley back in her house after the dog bit here child? What was being filmed in April that involved Kim? Does this mean she was going to come back as a housewife?
“Kingsley lunged at Plaintiff and bit and held onto her lower abdomen and crotch, tearing off her leggings and underwear and ripped out portions of flesh between her legs and genitalia,” according to documents obtained by The Wrap. Sanderson claims “severe physical injuries, emotional distress and pain and suffering and was required to seek, did seek and continues to seek medical treatment and surgeries for her injuries.”
I completely believe that Kim Richard’s legal team managed to get this delayed until Kim could show some sort of progress on her probation conditions. She was in court around the time this was supposed to come out. Let’s see if they completely edit her out. I am not going to do a full recap because I’ve already forgotten these people’s names.
It’s the first therapy session and Kim appears to be stoned out of her fucking mind. When I pause on her eyes are either closed or circled with black eyeliner like a raccoon.
Dr Debbie gives everyone a partying gift. She gave Kim a tiny suitcase and said “You are strong enough to carry your own baggage.” Kim is slurring her words and laughing inappropriately. Kimberly is sitting next to her trying to pretend that everything is normal. The weird part is that they filmed a double confessional at some point after this and she seems totally normal. When did they film that? Kimberly was given a hall pass to not do every little thing for her mother.
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.
