Being on the Real Housewives shows is a lot of work. Cast members have to bring the drama – but not too much – and find a way to resonate with the audience so that they can stick around for another season. Not all Housewives are able to do this, which is why some of the end up getting the boot. Other times these ladies choose to leave on their own accord. We have a list of 7 former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members and what they have been up to since they said goodbye to the reality show:
7. Kim Richards
Kim Richards had a rough run on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It came out during season one that she had substance abuse issues and she continued to struggle with addiction until her exit at the end of the season five. After leaving the show, her problems got worse. Despite spending time in rehab on more than one occasion, she wasn’t able to kick the habit. In 2015, she was arrested for shoplifting at Target and she was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel for public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery. For both charges, she received community service, probation and was forced to attend mandatory AA sessions. In April 2016, she narrowly avoided jail time when failed to show proof that she had completed her community labor and she found herself in her more legal trouble again when a woman by the name of Paige Elizabeth Sanderson filed a lawsuit alleging that Kim’s pit bull Kingsley bit her in the crotch. While the former child star was guest on season six of the RHOBH, she hasn’t been doing much else. She appeared in an episode of Revenge in 2015 and in the TV movie Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! , but that’s it.
