And the Kim Richards saga continues.
Days after the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star returned to Twitter following her most recent arrest and hospitalization, the 50-year-old reality star entered in a no contest plea for her misdemeanor resisting arrest charge stemming from her April run-in with the law at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
The Los Angeles District Attorney tells E! News that Richards has been placed on three years (36 months) of summary probation and has ordered to take 52 AA classes over the next year. She must also complete 30 days of community labor, and she has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Beverly Hills Hotel.
About five months ago, Beverly Hills Police were called to the Beverly Hills Hotel around 1:30 a.m. by security in response to a reported fight.
Richards, who was described as belligerent with slurred speech and reeking of a strong odor of alcohol when police arrived at the scene, was later charged with one count of public intoxication, one count of resisting, obstructing, delaying a peace officer or EMT, and one count of battery upon a peace officer.
The mother of four, whose sobriety struggles continue to make headlines, was also arrested last month for shoplifting upwards of $600 worth of merchandise from a Target store in the San Fernando Valley. She spent one night in jail before being released on $5,000 bail and was subsequently briefly hospitalized.
Upon her return to Twitter, Richards, who has been in and out of rehab this summer, responded to one fan who asked who asked if she's sober. "Yes I am" she wrote, along with several smiley face emojis and hearts.
However, Richards is once again making headlines this morning as TMZ reports that the former Bravolebrity recently visited a smoke shop on multiple occasions and attempted to buy the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.
According to the report, Richards was turned away from the store three separate times and claimed that a family member told her she could purchase the prescription drug from the shop.
