So what exactly is going on with Kim Richards? Fans will soon find out.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star sat down for a one-on-one TV interview with Dr. Phil to discuss her ongoing struggle with alcoholism and break her silence on her recent arrest that made headlines at the famed Beverly Hills Hotel amid charges for public intoxication and trespassing.

"I was angry and frightened and I was scared," Richards tells Dr. Phil of her arrest. "I knew what I had done. The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn't drink."

The exclusive interview is set to air Tuesday, April 28.

Richards was arrested on Thursday, April 16, and booked on charges of public intoxication, trespassing, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer for allegedly making a scene at the Beverly Hills Hotel's famed Polo Lounge and then supposedly kicking an officer at the station after her arrest.

According to officials, the Beverly Hills Police were called around 1:30 a.m. by security in response to a reported fight, where Richards was described as belligerent with slurred speech and reeking of a strong odor of alcohol.

Per police, Richards was initially in the bathroom and refused to come out, but she was eventually brought to the Beverly Hills Police Station for booking. Richards was then placed in a holding cell for the rest of the night to sober up. She was cited and released in the morning.

Richards is due to appear at the LAX Superior Court on June 10.
