TMZ has added a new post on the Kim Richards situation in which they claim that Kim is homeless. She did lose her home in the valley, due to rent issues and issues surrounding Kingsley. I believe she stayed with Kathy briefly and rotated through one or two of her daughters. This doesn’t surprise me at all. They also say she has more than 50 items in her cart when she was detained by security. I wonder if some of the Kingsley cases have been able to attach her bank accounts in order to pay her judgements with that. I imagine Kathy is paying Shapiro and nothing else waiting for Kim to run out of gas. Literally.
Also, If your Mama taught you if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all, heed her advice and do not start a comment with a disclaimer making it clear you don’t like Kim. If you don’t like Kim, please move on to another post. Comments will be heavily monitored for those who lack self-restraint. And it’s annoying. So don’t be shocked when you fall into the window licking section.
Well, I woke up around 3:30 am to discover several emails in my inbox about Kim Richards’ latest arrest. I actually went to check TMZ before I opened my email for some reason and saw through bleary eyes as my laptop struggled to open the slow site simply “Kim Richards Sho…” and in the few seconds I waited for the site to finish loading thought the had shot herself. It seems that Kim was in Target on a leisurely Sunday evening doing what we have all done from time to time, becoming engrossed in the joys of Target where you suddenly find yourself with a full cart of household items. Instead of culling her items down to a reasonable number, or simply saying, “fuck it, it’s basic necessities for the most part!” (at least that is how I rationalize it) and checking out and paying for her selections, she opted to attempt to leave without paying. She was detained by a security guard in the parking lot.
According to TMZ, “The former ‘Real Housewife’ was booked into jail around 7:30 PM after store security called LAPD to a Target in the Valley. Law enforcement tells us a security guard nabbed her for allegedly scooping up a “bunch of items” worth more than $600. Richards got out of the pokey on Monday afternoon. Her bail was $5,000. It’s unclear if she was under the influence at the time of this latest arrest.”
Not surprisingly, Kim’s partner in crime and enabler, Monty Brinson was already speaking to Entertainment Tonight about the story and claiming that Kim is innocent and it’s all a big misunderstanding.
“I couldn’t imagine Kim stealing or shoplifting anything. She is a giver,” Richards’ ex-husband Monty told ET. “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.”
I quickly went to check Monty’s Instagram and was saddened to discover that the frequent posts accompanied by psychedelic photos seems to have taken on an increasing sense of saying goodbye.
I also checked to see if a mugshot was available and ran across a new story from 2007 that explains that the LAPD does not release mugshots to the public. I really thought that was just a Beverly Hills PD policy.
I admit I am still trying to distress from thinking she had shot herself or someone else in that brief moment before fully being awake.
I have not heard about the primary hearing for Kim’s previous arrest in Beverly Hills happening which is a bit odd. I presume it has been pushed back as the attorneys attempt to get Kim sober again. It’s been less than a week since Kim’s interview claiming her love for sobriety while appearing less than sober.
I’d really appreciate it if you guys could try to be as compassionate as possible with regard to Kim’s situation. Personal attacks against Kim’s character are not going to help the tragedy of this situation at all. Clearly, Kim has a lot of demons to fight in her life and seems to be losing the battle. It’s very sad.
Is it wrong to want to know a list of items in the cart? I seriously doubt it was “toys” as Monty suggested. And how would he know? Was he with her? From the sounds of his Instagram I’m not sure he is well enough for a Sunday afternoon at Target.
