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.
Here is what Kim had to say in a Bravo Blog this week. Wait, why did she even have a blog at all? I’m just going to post her angry rant here. There are some mixed up sentences that Bravo editors apparently chose not to fix. Perhaps that is a nod to her incoherence?
“From what I did see, things seemed to only get worse with Lisa Rinna, and I and wasn’t even there to engage with her. I always seemed to be a constant topic of conversation for her and Eileen. I’m a little baffled as to how after almost two years of some sort of a personal attack on me that her response was, “I was actually shocked oops…,” “That was wrong, and I’m sorry,” ” I wish you well,” “That’s what I’ve got for you,” and “I’m human.” I didn’t feel like I got a proper or sincere apology. hank you from the bottom of my heartShe has done the same thing to my friends. For her to ever say the word Munchausen after everything Yolanda has been through is just AWFUL! What a hurtful thing to say. Yolanda already has enough on her plate. Lisa and Eileen have been talking about my friends and me since day one. I live in the now, not the past, and I don’t even choose to go into the future. So accepting an apology and moving forward is what I’m all about–if it is genuine. But I did not feel Lisa or Eileen were genuine. I feel bad about that. But I mostly feel bad for them. Living their lives constantly through other people’s worlds can’t be fun. Certainly there is no real happiness always storing and harboring negative energies.”
Kim thinks that she is owed an apology for being high in a van with Rinna and making a huge drunken/high scene in Eileen’s house. This does not bode well for her recovery.
Kim Richards got off easy on her sentencing for public drunkenness at The Beverly Hotel last September and for her shoplifting at Target when she was sentenced last October Her Target sentence was pretty much NOTHING other than saying she had to do what the judge in the Beverly Hotel sentence said. She received a sentence of 300 hours of community service as opposed to thirty days of community labor because Kim managed to use her foot injury to get out of the previous community labor and it was changed to 300 hours of community service.
Now things are working out exactly how I predicted when I said here, “At any rate. Basically, nothing is going to happen to her either way. She won’t do the AA meetings, she won’t do the community service unless it involves a red carpet and she will be back in court again in 2016 to answer for it just like Lindsey Lohan did with hers.”
The next court date I am aware of is June 1, 2016. However, there are actually two cases in two jurisdictions with two different judges. I feel like there should be one in May, which is next week from the first case regarding the Beverly Hills Hotel. That judge seems to be the most likely to seriously enforce the terms of the deal. That is the judge that ordered she do community labor not community service. The judge in the Target case let her claim a hurt foot and do community service.
These two cases have become muddled together in a confusing way when it comes to reporting on the situation. What is clear is that Kim doesn’t appear to be doing much of anything to meet the terms of her plea deal, and it is likely she will be taken from a courtroom to a jail cell in the near future.
Tonight on the finale of The Mother Daughter Experiment, Kim will be very unsteady on her feet and be removed during the middle of “group therapy” by ambulance. These women were in the house for only two weeks the amount of alcohol that flowed was staggering to me. And we all know I enjoy my adult beverages.
Here is the part where I tell you that the finale is tonight on Lifetime and put the show time. Except it seems to be off the schedule! I can find no listing of the finale anywhere. I’m off to look into this. Did Kim manage to get it taken off the air?
Meanwhile, here is Kim’s fight with Natalie.
