Is Kim Richards Getting The Boot From The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills?

January 15, 2014 12:31 PM by Suzy Kerr

Uh oh, it sounds like season 4 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may be the last for veteran Housewife Kim Richards. Sources close to the Bravo hit are saying that network execs are thinking about giving Kim the boot because her storyline is too boring. In other words, now that Kim isn’t getting sh*t-faced every week, she’s not as much fun (i.e., not as bankable for the bigwigs at Bravo).

RadarOnline broke the story earlier today, citing an anonymous source close to the show’s production staff. “The network is not entirely happy with the ratings for the current season of Beverly Hills and sadly, despite being Paris Hilton‘s aunt, she has little going on in her life,” said the insider when asked about Kim’s future with the series.

There’s just one little (or potentially huge) problem that may cause the Bravo bigwigs to rethink their decision to fire Kim, and that’s her sister, Kyle Richards. Like Kim, Kyle has been a part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since the show’s first season, and she is fiercely protective of her sibling. According to the insider, “As you can imagine, Kyle is very unhappy about Bravo’s plans. She has made no secret of that fact that she’ll threaten to quit if her sister is fired.”

Here’s the deal, though. RHOBH has been steadily declining in popularity, and millions of viewers have tuned out within the last two seasons.Part of the problem is that there’s no real drama, other than the ongoing feud between Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud. That’s what audiences want to see – not Kim’s dog being trained – and network execs know that. Says the source, “They could be looking for at least two new housewives for the next season.In any event, producers will be looking for ladies with over the top lifestyles, who bring the drama. The Brandi-Joyce feud is really the only storyline so far this season that the audience is engaging with.”

Methinks things don’t look so great for our favorite recovering alcoholic. But what do you think? Is Kim Richards going to get the axe, or will the threat of Kyle quitting too keep her safe? Tell us in the comments!

    I think Kim Richards is the only one who is having really funny and should stay.

    I actually have enjoyed the segments between Kim and Kingsley. The person whom I can’t stand to watch this season is Joyce. Who died and left her in charge of everything. I also find Joyce’s husband obnoxious. I always enjoy seeing Brandi, Lisa, and Carlton this season. They always have something interesting going on in their lives. And I love anything with Kingsley the Pit Bull in it.

    I for one will be happy to see the both of them go….Kim was never a housewife anyway and had no business being on the show….both her and her sister are nothing but spoiled brats….they should live in my world for a couple of months and see the crap they are whining about is ridiculous………..

    I enjoy watching Kim and hope she continues on the road to sobriety. She is finding ways to develop her inner self and that’s finally a good thing to watch on TV. Why does it always have to be over the top drama, fighting and be %bitchy. Who I can’t stand and needs to leave is Brandy. Her story has gotten so OLD. She is a very dysfunctional and shady lady. Everything has got to be about Brandy! She says things that provoke people and then when they retaliate she brings out the phrase “This is something that could jeopardize the custody of my children”. She needs to grow up, act like an adult and parent and stop doing and saying things that will jeopardize the custody of her children.

    Who brought Brandy into the mix anyway? Then you have the freaky attraction of Brandy and Carlton. Ugh! Makes me uncomfortable every time I see the 2 of them together. It’s like watching the beginnings of a soft porn movie. And Bravo wonders why the public have start tuning out. Think of the demographics of your audience. Everyone is not an undercover freak and some people don’t like to watch overly sexual pixie sticks making the move on one another.

    Kim’s a GEM, and a real shame if they lose her. Even sadder if Kyle go’s too. That would be the Coffin nail for RHOBH. Kim’s RECOVERY should be focused on in her segments. Big goals being met there and KUDOS to her! -Ethan Tudor W.

    I’m sorry, but Kim is as incoherent now as she ever was. Her confessionals should come equipped with sub-titles. Wouldn’t miss her at all, or her overly self-righteous sister…bye bye Richards’ sisters and take Carlton with you.

    We can only hope, fingers crossed on my part, that, not only Kim but Kyle as well! She’s one of the worst back-stabbers on the planet.She talks about the other women in such a condescending way, but, don’t you dare call her out! She’s just plain NASTY, SPITEFUL! I can hardly watch when she’s on the show anymore! Kyle- YOU ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT to ALL women!!!

    Kim and Kyle are the most normal pair on the show. I can’t stand Carlton. She’s a weirdo and a B!**h!!

    correct the ones that should be booted out is trashy and evil Brandi and ugly bi-Carlton.

    It’s a shame that Kim’s sobriety isn’t championed, but rather an excuse to fire her. This whole show has gone down hill, because of constant bickering and openly hostile attitudes this season. I miss the days when we were bowled over by the over -the -top lifestyles. I miss the friendships. They were fun, & yes there was drama, but you knew they had a genuine affection for one another. I miss the original group!

    Would not miss Kim at all. Would not miss Joyce either. Love Lisa and Yolanda, but Brandi is nothing but a manipulator of truths, jealous and a trouble maker. These “women” make real women look very bad indeed. Kyle…you need to grow up and realize no one knows who you are.
