On Tuesday, it was revealed that Kim Richards fled from her rehab facility only 30 days after checking in!
Now, it's been reported for some time that the 50-year-old won't be a cast member on the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
But even more than that, now that producers have deemed her as a liability risk and have let her go from the show, she reportedly won't even be making those "friend of the show" appearances! Although her sister Kyle Richards is still a cast member, but we all know they aren't exactly in communication at this time, so it wouldn't make sense anyway for Kim to appear just as Kyle's sister.

The reality star has been struggling with substance abuse problems, so it's probably for the best that she is away from the cameras and drama that comes with the Real Housewives territory.
We hope Richards gets the help she needs.

This isn't very good news.
As you may be aware, '80s icon George Michael is said to have gone to a year-long rehab last June following an incident that required him to get rushed to the hospital.
Well, now the 52-year-old singer's family is speaking out about what caused him to enter his $300,000-per-month Swiss rehab, and the allegations are pretty extreme.

In a recent interview, George's cousin-in-law Jackie Georgiou claimed the star was "waking up in vomit" due to his addictions to crack, cocaine, alcohol, and marijuana, saying:
John Stamos has checked himself into rehab. Last month, the actor was arrested for DUI, and when the cops pulled him over they immediately sent him to a hospital because he was so out of it!

That night, the cops were called pretty early in the evening — at 7:45 p.m. — and if the 51-year-old was so under the influence that he needed to be rushed to receive medical attention, he was probably drinking heavily for a while.
We learned now that the Hollywood heartthrob has entered a residential facility for substance abuse.
We're glad the Fuller House star took matters into his own hands, and we hope he gets the help he needs to live a safe and healthy life.

It's good to be Joe Manganiello!
He's engaged to the lovely Sofia Vergara, starring in the highly anticipated Magic Mike XXL, and is one of the sexiest men alive.
However, none of these things eliminates the battle to stay sober — which he says requires strength and focus.
We're so happy to hear this!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may have just lost two of its main cast members, but there has been some good news to come out of the Bravo show recently…
Kim Richards is doing better!

According to her sister Kyle, a stint in rehab is exactly what Kim needed following her boozy arrest in back in April.
Kim isn't set to appear in court for her pre-trial motions until July 16, so hopefully she can use this next month to get back to 100% condition.
Keep doin' what you're doin', Kimmy!

The Real Housewives support each other, even if their shows are on opposite coasts!
We recently caught up with The Real Housewives of Miami star Lea Black at a party for her new book Red Carpets & White Lies. The reality TV queen gave some advice to her embattled Beverly Hills counterpart, Kim Richards.
Kim is currently in rehab after suffering a relapse and drunken arrest.

Lea had these words of encouragement:
"I feel for her because [addiction] is a very difficult disease. And people fight it for years. And I think she has a good heart. She's a good girl."
But she also gave Kim a warning, especially since there are conflicting reports that she's been kicked off the show:
