Reports were circulating on Thursday that the troubled reality star had recently checked in to a treatment facility, but now an insider is saying that's just not true:
"Kim is not in rehab right now."
But that doesn't mean she's been hospital-free lately. Earlier this month, the former child actor was reportedly placed in an involuntary psychiatric hold by her family. The source says:
"Kim has been telling people her family did a 5150 on her the first week of August. She says it was her whole family."
But if Kim is allegedly on track to recover, does this mean the producers of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills could give the former cast member a second chance on the popular program?
Last month, she was under the impression that they told her rep that they wanted her back. But it turns out, that wasn't the case. The insider added:
"Someone gave her wrong information. Kim was just repeating what she had been told."
So sad, but it's probably for the best! This way she can focus her energy on getting better! We're wishing her the best in her recovery!
