The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills chicks may be on hiatus, but just because the cameras have stopped rolling doesn't mean the drama is taking a break. Far from it!

Just got word that one housewife is most likely opting out of season two due to some serious personal issues.

Any guesses as to who it might be?

Kim Richards.

You thought we were going to say Camille Grammer, didn't you?

"Camille is coming back; she just wants the public to feel sorry for her a little longer because of the whole Kelsey [Grammer] thing, so she's not announcing it yet," dishes our Bravo insider.

But apparently Kim isn't so eager.

"It's 99 percent certain that she won't do season two," explains our source.

RHOBH fans know full well that the season finale had some serious tension between Kim and her sister Kyle Richards.

"There is so much more going on than what was shown on TV," blabs our RHOBH insider. "There was a lot of tension building up over the years, they have a complicated relationship."

Even though Kim refused to discuss her possible alcohol problems on the reunion show a few weeks ago, concerned friends aren't so quiet.

"It's a problem. She just won't show up to events or functions she is supposed to be at, and no one can get a hold of her," spills our insider. "It's really affecting her relationships to those closest to her."

Wonder if that's why she was MIA from her Ellen appearance?

Remember, Kim has never admitted that she has a drinking problem, but it was portrayed during this season that it might be an issue.

As for how her relationship is with Kyle, we're told they are working on it.

"Kim, Kathy [Hilton] and Kyle all love each other, but their dynamic is complicated," insists our source.

Another sign that Kim may not be returning?

We hear LeAnn Rimes' nemesis Brandi Glanville is close to inking her deal for season two.

Remember, Brandi was married to Eddie Cibrian before LeAnn and Eddie hooked up (and, well, during), and she's also besties with Cedric Martinez.

You know, Lisa Vanderpump's not-so-permanent houseguest?

We've reached out to Kim and Bravo for comment, but have yet to hear back.

Are you sad to see Kim possibly go? Or do you want her to stay? Sound off below.
