Kim Richards Hospitalized After 5150 Hold
UPDATE: There are mixed reports about whether Kim has been admitted to the hospital. Sources at Eonline.com say she is not in the hospital or rehab.
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards may finally be getting the help she needs.
RadarOnline.com reports that Kim was detained on a 5150 hold last week, and is now receiving medical care.
A 5150 hold allows physicians to keep someone involuntarily for a 72-hour evaluation.
Sources tell Radar that after she was released, “Kim finally realized that she needed help and is truly committed to getting it. She voluntarily checked into an inpatient facility in Orange County. The family has been very supportive of this move.”
Another insider sounded hopeful for Kim's future. “Kim hit rock bottom and is finally ready to do the work needed to get her life back on track.”
