Kim Richards has been living out of her car ever since leaving rehab in July. Richards has taken to sleeping in her car because she no longer has a permanent place of residence and she’s overstayed her welcome with friends and family members. On Sunday, the currently homeless Richards was arrested at a Los Angeles Target for allegedly shoplifting several hundred dollars worth of goods. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star spent the night in jail.

The Target arrest was not her first. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Richards was picked up on April 16 for public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery on a police officer after she drunkenly caused a scene at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where was acting belligerent and locked herself in a bathroom. She was later forcibly removed from the bathroom and brought to a police station, where she kicked an officer.

Richards, who went back in rehab after being a mess at her daughter Brooke’s wedding in Mexico in May, was offered offered a plea deal in June as a means to avoid two and a half years in jail for the Beverly Hills Hotel incident. In addition to community labor, probation and restitution to the kicked cop, Richards would have to attend AA classes once a week for a full year.
