There have been a lot of stories about what went down hours before Kim Richards' arrest on April 16, but soon we're all going to hear what happened straight from the former child actor.
Which is certainly interesting, because other stories that have surfaced prior to this interview have eyewitnesses recalling they saw Kim grab a drink from the bar at the Polo Lounge inside the hotel.
Very, very interesting.
Watch Kim explain to Dr. Phil what happened that fateful evening (above)!
It's been reported that Kim Richards has made a decision on her own to check herself into rehab.
Following the 50-year-old's arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel for reportedly being heavily intoxicated and disorderly, and storming out of her interview with Dr. Phil, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has agreed to get the help she needs.
We hear she is currently in a live-in facility in Malibu that specializes in substance abuse.
Sources close to Richards said that she made the decision after consulting with her family, and is planning on staying in the rehab facility as long as it takes to get better.
We applaud the RHOBH star for seeking the help she needs, as one of the hardest steps of recovery for substance abuse is acknowledging the problem.
We know Kim has sought out treatment in the past, but we hope this time is the time that really helps her heal.

It appears Kim Richards is not ready to get help.
Flanked by three of her children, Richards appears visibly upset and even angry when questioned by the famous doctor.
If there's anything we know about Dr. Phil, it's that he likes to play hardball!

The host appeared on Wednesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel, saying that if he were the interviewer, he'd start by telling the Olympian:
"If it's what you want to do, do it. I mean, what the hell's it matter what anybody else thinks?"
We're happy to hear this take — some common sense that America needs to get behind!
Unfortunately, then Dr. Phil kind of threw his own open-minded spirit out the window with his next comment, which is not only making light of Bruce's reported transition — but is also a bit ageist!
Dr. Phil said he would follow up with:
Dr. Phil is a pro when it comes to getting the scoop!
After it was reported that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards sat down for a one-on-one with Phil about her recent arrest, sources claim that the famous doctor offered to pay for an all expenses paid trip to rehab.
Unsurprisingly, the gift came with a catch — the reality star had to give Phil an exclusive and in-depth interview about her struggle to stay sober.
An insider revealed about the gesture:
This should prove to be super informative!
Kim has had a very public problem with alcohol in the past, so hopefully talking it out with the good doctor will be the help she needs!
In a sneak peek of next week's episode, Kim comments on her addiction, saying:
Actually, the two are both big country fans; rocker Steven is releasing a country album and Dr. Phil has admitted he "loves" the genre.
Rounding out the list of presenters are: Beth Behrs (which makes sense since the ceremony airs on CBS), Cowboys QB Tony Romo (Texas, duh), Kelly Clarkson (crossover superstar), Hunter Hayes, and Thomas Rhett.
Thomas will be pulling double duty; he's also slated to duet with Cole Swindell.
Other performers include Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Reba, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, and Rascal Flatts.
