Kim Richards used to be one of the more talked about cast members of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." During the show's first two seasons, Richards was struggling with an alcohol addiction as well as what appeared to be some sort of pill addiction.
The things that were said about her were mostly bad, but she stayed in the headlines as a result, and when it comes to reality TV, that is an ideal situation.
However, shortly after season two aired, Richards went to rehab and got sober. While that was what was (and) is best for her, it hasn't been great for her persona on the series and as a result, her popularity has plummeted.
In a poll held by Wetpaint Entertainment on March 10, fans were asked to vote on who bored them the most during season four out of Richards, Joyce Giraud, and Carlton Gebbia, and with 46% of the vote, Richards was at the top of the list. Joyce received 26% of the vote and Carlton captured 28%.
Since Joyce and Carlton are both on the verge of getting fired, it's alarming to see that Richards is considered more boring than the two of them. If that is the case, producers must have noticed as well, and if they did, her name was surely brought up when it came to cast changes.
