EXCLUSIVE: Bravo Taking Advantage Of Kim Richards
On this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the central focus has become, yet again, about Kim Richards‘ sobriety. A source close to production has come to The Dirty to dish about this and how Bravo is completely taking advantage of Richards.
“Kim was not initially supposed to be a part of this season, as production claimed they wanted to go in a different direction than having a season focus on the women talking about her sobriety again,” an insider exclusively told us.
“However,” they continued, “once they had been taping for a bit and realized nothing was going on that was of interest, they called Kim to return to the show.”
“Rather than pay her what she’s worth since she’s an original cast member,” our source added, “they only paid her on a per episode basis, and it wasn’t very much at all.”
Our insider went on to explain that, “This really isn’t fair for multiple reasons. First, the other two original cast members that are still on the show are making very, very high salaries. Also, the entire season ended up being all about Kim and her sobriety again, and she’s not even being compensated for having to deal with all of the focus being on her again and the negative attention that comes with that.”
“Bravo is definitely taking advantage of her, as they know she needs the money,” they added.
Stay tuned to The Dirty as we will have more exclusive information regarding this situation coming your way very soon.
