In her early adult years, Kim was seen on “Meatballs Part II” (1984), “Tuff Turf” (1985) and “Escape” (1990). In her later life and more advanced years, Kim Richards has continued to land minor TV roles, although sporadically one of such was in 2015 when she appeared as Stephanie in an episode of ABC’s “Revenge”.

Kim was inactive in show business throughout the 1990’s returning in the early 2000’s. After sporadic movie roles, Kim and sister Kyle were chosen to appear as regular cast members in Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” in 2010. Kim reportedly earned $100,000 per season.

However, before she resumed her role on the reality TV show, Kim was struggling with alcoholism and checked into rehab a couple of times. Back in 1991, her then-fiance commodities salesman John J. Collett was gunned down while the two were speaking over the phone.

Appearing on RHOBH seemed to escalate her personal problems as she checked into rehab yet again in 2012. From having one of her four children breakdown publicly, to her pit bull dog named Kingsley landing her in several lawsuits for its wild attack on several families, friends, and even strangers, and her own dramatic breakdown on her daughter’s wedding, Kim has been tabloid fodder.

Kim was arrested in April 2015 at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the reality TV star was charged with resisting an officer, public intoxication, and trespassing. She was released on a $20,000 bail, after spending a night at Los Angeles County Jail. The incidence blew the sobriety claims she made on the RHOBH, leading producers to fire her from the show. Kim had previously blown two chances from Bravo to get sober.

She was arrested yet again on August 2, 2015, for attempted shoplifting at Target department store in San Fernando Valley. She spent the night in jail and was released on a $3,000 bail the next morning. During these time period, Kim was struggling with her fiances and even had to live off her stepsister Kathy Hilton, mother to Paris Hilton.

After being fired by Bravo, Kim however, refused to stay fired, pestering the producers until they allowed her to return as a “friend” and guest on the 6th season of the show, reportedly without pay as she wanted a good PR after her issues with the law. The relentless Kim after learning that one of the show’s veterans Lisa VanderPump earns $2 million per season, demanded that Bravo pay her up to $1.5 million for the 7th season and more for reunions claiming that she would bring the necessary drama to keep fans watching. Unfortunately for Kim, not only did Bravo turn her down, they stated that “Kim is absolutely delusional if she thinks producers are going to give her anywhere near Lisa’s huge paycheck.”

Insider sources reveal that for the 7th season, Kim would be very lucky if she receives up to $150,000 per season. While Bravo turned down her pay rise, Kim could look to sister Kyle for a spot in her new Land TV show “American Woman” which will be based on how the sisters were raised by their mom back in the 1970’s.

Kim Richards has total assets worth $100,000, however, if she has indeed cleaned up her acts, she could be set for future high paying gigs.
