Kim Richards’ Season 3 Real Housewives of Beverly Hills opening tagline declares: “Life is a journey, and I’m finding myself every day.” Unfortunately, Sunday night (August 2), police found her stealing a bunch of stuff from a department store in the San Fernando Valley.

Police told ABC News Richards was arrested after trying to steal more than $600 worth of merchandise from a Target retailer in Van Nuys, California. She was then booked at the Van Nuys station and released on Monday on $5,000 bail, the site says.

The arrest is the second in a matter of months for Richards, who was taken into custody by Beverly Hills police in April for drunkenly causing a disturbance at a hotel restaurant. According to CBS News, Richards then tried to kick a police officer once at the city’s precinct, and was ultimately charged with public intoxication, trespassing, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer.

Richards’ fellow Housewives cast member Lisa Vanderpump tweeted that Sunday’s incident was “such a shame.”

The Housewives star has openly addressed her struggles with alcoholism on the show, and last month, she told Entertainment Tonight “I’ve always loved sobriety” amid a relapse and return to rehab.

“[Relapsing] was not easy,” she added. “I have to say, don’t take this wrong, but I really wanted to go to treatment because I needed a break from what I was going through at home.”
