Kim Richards Hospitalized and Released Days After Being Arrested for Shoplifting
Kim Richards' family is not giving up.

Just a few days after the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested for shoplifting, E! News can confirm Kim's family had her briefly hospitalized late last week.

A source can also confirm to E! News that she has been released for the time being. No word on the exact reason behind her stay.

It's been no secret that Kim's reality has been anything but glamorous in recent months. While the former reality star has been open about her struggles with sobriety, those closest to her also paint a picture of a woman unable to maintain a stable environment.

"There are people in the family who wish she had stayed in rehab longer," a source recently revealed to E! News. "They weren't happy she chose to leave early."

Another source added that the Sharknado 3 star was not talking to her sisters and many friends. In fact, Kim had nowhere to live and was "jumping house" until she could secure a stable residency.
