Kim Richards may no longer be starring on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," but that hasn't stopped her from being a topic of discussion. In episode 6 news of her August shoplifting arrest, which took place at a San Fernando Valley, California, Target, became public and stars like Lisa Vanderpump refused to shy away from talking about it.
Early in the episode while preparing to jet to The Hamptons in New York Lisa, 55, learns that Kim, 52, has been charged with shoplifting nearly $600 worth of merchandise. Her shock quickly turns to sadness as she gets a call from Kyle Richards who has just heard the news. The mother-of-four can be heard sobbing over the phone as she shares with Lisa how hurt she is. Kyle, 46, hangs up before she gets too overwhelmed by her emotions. The "RHOBH" ladies then make their way across the country to one of the eastern most towns on Long Island for some fun in the sun. Lisa and the gang are put up in a hotel that doubles as one of the largest nightclubs in the Hamptons, which doesn't sit well with Kyle or Eileen Davidson. Before Lisa V. or Lisa Rinna can arrive the duo make the executive decision to leave the hotel and get into a house nearby. This decision upsets Lisa V., who arrives to a note from her gal pals.
Despite being slightly upset, Lisa V, her husband Ken Todd and her prized pooch Giggy hit the red carpet to do some press before a luxurious cocktail party. Kyle, Eileen, 56, and Lisa R. arrive shortly after the party begins and are greeted by a disappointed Lisa V. She expresses her anger to them, but quickly moves on salvaging the party. The ladies then sit down for drinks and chit chat. The conversation quickly shifts towards Kim's situation which upsets Kyle. She expresses in her one-on-one interview that she doesn't feel the cast is being supportive of her situation.
Meanwhile Yolanda Foster jets to Ohio to undergo surgery with one of the leading explant surgeons in the country. The procedure, which was first discussed in episode 6, was to remove her ruptured breast implants. She brings her now-estranged husband David Foster along for moral support. Immediately after the surgery, which goes on for seven long hours, Yolanda requests to see David, 66. She greets him tearfully, and is met with a warm embrace. He assures her everything will be alright and continues to comfort her.
Previews for Season 6, episode 8 suggest Tuesday's show was only the tip of the tension that will erupt during the Hamptons trip. Erika Girardi and "The Real Housewives of New York City" star Bethenny Frankle arrive during the upcoming episode and don't exactly see eye-to-eye on all things business.
"RHOBH" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
