It's surprising anyone is in Kim Richards' corner these days!

So, what does Richards' ailing ex-husband, Monty Brison, think about the 50-year-old's recent troubles? He explained:
"I couldn't imagine Kim stealing or shoplifting anything. She is a giver. I am in complete shock. Guaranteed this must be some kind of mistake, and the facts will come out soon. She was arrested for shoplifting toys in a cart, but this was a clear misunderstanding. This was not alcohol- or drug-related."
Wait, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested for stealing…toys?! Aren't all of Kimmy's children grown?!
To further his defense of the once child actress, Monty posted these words of wisdom to his Instagram:
Hmm, we're not sure what to believe — can $600 dollars worth of merchandise be chalked up to a honest mistake? We also hope this isn't alcohol or drug related considering Richards has been in and out of rehab since May.
We'll keep you posted on the case as more details emerge!
