Coming out of rehab for alcohol addiction, Kim Richards, the former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, is working out her next step.
Recently, the 50-year-old went out to dinner at Madeo in Beverly Hills with a group of close friends. A source told E! Online that she was also accompanied by longtime pal Wynn Katz, who is also a regular at the restaurant. The source added that through the night, Richards did not order any alcohol and was seen enjoying only water with her meal.
A second source confirmed Richards’ pleasant life after rehab. “Kim is upbeat, but uncertain about her future. Since leaving rehab, she's been staying with Kathy and Rick [Hilton]. But she needs to find her own place to live soon,” the source explained.
But life for the “Race to Witch Mountain” star is not all sunshine and rainbows. Given that she left the Bravo series, the source admitted that Richards struggles financially and fears for an uncertain future. “Financially, she's stressed,” the insider said. “Without her ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ salary, she's going to have to figure something out. There have been small roles here and there, but she needs money.”
Richards has appeared in the first five seasons of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Bravo has not yet released a date for season six.
