'RHOBH' Reunion Was the Reason for Kim Richard's Arrest

Having your life publicly displayed for millions of viewers can't be easy. But for Kim Richards, that spotlight was what caused her recent arrest.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was taken into custody after police were notified of a belligerently drunk woman bothering guests in the Beverly Hills Hotel. She was arrested after locking herself in a bathroom and kicking an officer.

Viewers of RHOBH know that her difficult situation is nothing new, as the series followed Richards through an estranged relationship with her sister and her struggle with addiction.

But the real tipping point was seeing herself on television. A source claims that, "Watching the three part reunion was difficult as Kim had to relive all the troubles in her life", attributing the stress of viewing the special as too much for her to bear.
