Playing Kim Richards Takes Responsibility for Arrest: 'The Whole Night Is My Fault'

Kim Richards is sitting down with Dr. Phil next week to talk about the course of events that led to her being arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel for public intoxication.

"I was angry and frightened and I was scared," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells Dr. Phil in an interview to air Tuesday, April 28. "I knew what I had done. The whole night is my fault."

According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, police were called around 1:30 a.m. on April 16 by hotel security because Richards was allegedly acting belligerent and refused to leave the restaurant inside the hotel. The 50-year-old reality star then reportedly refused to leave the restaurant's bathroom, at which point security issued a private citizen's arrest.

"None of this would have happened if I didn't drink," says Richards, who admits to having an ongoing struggle with alcoholism.
