Kim Richards from ‘Real Housewives’ Arrested on Shoplifting Charges

It seems that fame and money aren’t sufficient deterrents  for kleptomania when it comes to Hollywood celebrities and this time it was reality TV star Kim Richards, of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ that fell prey to the urges. She joins a long line of celebrities arrested for shoplifting, including famous actresses Winona Ryder, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes.


The incident occurred at a Target store in Van Nuys, California; Richards was caught red-handed outside the store pushing a shopping cart full of items worth $600 and above. She was immediately booked, placed under citizen’s arrest and taken to Van Nuys Police Department jail for the night; Richards was charged with misdemeanour and released the following morning on a $5,000 bail.


This, however, was not her first offence. Just a few months earlier, in April, she was arrested at the Polo Lounge, Beverly Hills Hotel, and charged with public intoxication and battery against a police officer – when she was arrested, she had kicked the officer in the leg! Richards had pleaded not guilty to these charges.

Sister to Real Housewives co-star Kyle Richards and aunt to Paris Hilton, Kim Richards has a proven record of alcohol abuse and an ongoing battling against addiction which is featured on the Real Housewives show. She has already been to a rehab centre twice this year.
