If found guilty on all charges, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star could spend nearly three years in prison.
During a recent sit-down with Dr. Phil, Richards didn’t hold back, opening up about her ongoing battle with alcoholism, including the night of her arrest. She admitted to drinking a glass of vodka at daughter Brooke’s house before heading to the Beverly Hills Hotel. She explained, "I was scared, and I was intoxicated, so everything's magnified. I poured one drink, but maybe it was bigger than I thought."
When asked about allegations that she kicked an officer, she said, "Maybe I did kick him. I don't know.”
Not long after the interview, Richards checked into a rehab facility in Malibu.
