Kim Richards arrested for shoplifting
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
' star -- and Paris Hilton's aunt -- Kim Richards heard there was a sale at Target on Sunday where you could fill up your cart and walk out of the store, but apparently that's not actually how sales work so she was arrested and thrown in jail. From Entertainment Tonight
The citizen's arrest was made by a Target lost prevention officer at the retail store's Van Nuys location on Sepulveda Blvd when she was suspected of stealing shopping cart full toys and merchandise valued at $1,000. ET has learned that she had three carts full of items, but was only charged for a portion of what she loaded into her vehicle.
Richards was later booked at 7:29 p.m. PT on Sunday at the Valley Jail in Van Nuys, California, and was released Monday afternoon after posting $5,000 bail.
According to TMZ
, Kim was homeless and living out of her car at the time of the arrest. To recap:
- Former reality star (eek)
- Living out of her car (ouch)
- Arrested for shoplifting (ugh)
All three cringeworthy, yes, but still not the most embarrassing part of this story. The most embarrassing part of this story is that Kim is actually related to Paris Hilton by blood. Oh god that's terrible. And it's not like you can just choose not to be related anymore. Blood is forever. I would have shoplifted a gun and shot myself years ago if I had that kind of cloud hanging over me.
