Kim Richards Hospitalized After Desperate Family’s Bid To Save Her
There is finally hope for troubled former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards: has exclusively learned that she is currently getting medical care after being subjected to a 5150 hold!

Richards’ attorney confirmed the news to Radar after multiple sources revealed that she was hospitalized on a 5150 hold last week. In California, physicians can impose an involuntary 72-hour confinement on someone who is assessed to be a danger to themselves or others. Radar previously reported Richards’ family was pushing for the move.

“They were at the end of their rope trying to get her help and decided to force her to get it,” one insider said.

Richards was released after three days following the 5150, but is now hospitalized at another facility in Southern California.

“Kim finally realized that she needed help and is truly committed to getting it,” said a source. “She voluntarily checked into an inpatient facility in Orange County. The family has been very supportive of this move.”

Another insider claimed, “They told her she had to do it or she was cut off from all of them financially. It is tough love.”
