Kathy Hilton Defends Sister Kim Richards From Dr. Drew
Following Kim Richards' shoplifting arrest, her older half-sister took to Twitter, where she dissed Dr. Drew for his recent discussion on the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's ongoing struggles.

@ drdrew I had a feeling you would weigh in on my sisters situation, surprised u r that desperate that u would be on with people so unkind

Richards was arrested on Sunday at a Target in Van Nuys, Calif., where she had reportedly filled three carts with over $600 worth of merchandise. The arrest marked the second incarceration for the former reality star this year. In April, Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel and charged with public intoxication, resisting an officer, battery on an officer and trespassing.

Following her first arrest, Richards entered rehab, where she remained for just a couple of weeks before traveling to Mexico for her daughter's wedding. Since then, Richards has spent an additional 30 days in treatment.

Also on Twitter, Hilton re-tweeted a handful of messages from fans, which featured words of encouragement for her troubled sister.

Richards was released from custody on Monday and will return to court on Aug. 20 to address a petty theft charge against her.
