The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills show almost didn’t happen. The first incarnation of the now extensive franchise was Real Housewives of Orange County, and when a Beverly Hills spin-off was first suggested, executive producer Andy Cohen didn’t believe it would be different enough. He quickly changed his mind, and the show became a yet another mega-success. The catty cast assembled and the ensuing drama has become reality TV gold that audiences can’t get enough of. Here are some of biggest fights, scandals, and shockers from the show – because that’s the juicy stuff that keeps us all enthralled.
1. Kim Richards’ arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel
In April 2015 Kim was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel for acting belligerently and actually kicking a police officer. Kim has struggled with sobriety on and off the show so while the display was not entirely shocking it was still incredibly dramatic. She was later charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery, for which she got three years of probation, 30 days of community service and 52 weeks of A.A. sessions.
