Kim Richards did not escape from rehab after all



tbd-kimrichards123011.jpgYou may have heard that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards had busted out of rehab and gone on the lam, but not so. In fact, her own rep even confirmed she was still in treatment. That's really going to make for some boring episodes next season.

"She's doing okay," a source tells People. "Everyone is hoping for the best." Kim's sister Kyle did visit her, so that may have been how this whole rumor got started.

Richards went to rehab earlier this month for alcohol abuse and "other problems," which is shorthand for her alleged prescription drug problem. If there's one good thing about all this, it's that Bravo's producers won't be able to follow Kim around 24 hours a day for awhile.
