Kim Richards was recently summoned to court for wearing high heels on the red carpet. The reality star has reportedly not completed any of her required community service due to an alleged foot injury.
According to TMZ, prosecutors blasted the reality star in court after prosecutors showed evidence, which included photos of her wearing high heels despite her foot injury claims. Richards is set to return to court on June 1 to determine whether she has done any community service or violated her probation. She could be jailed if the court proves that she lied about her foot injury.

According to Richards’ attorneys, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills member is still suffering from her foot and knee injury that resulted in nerve damage. They said they are planning on scheduling surgery; however, their client’s injury limits her movement.
A source told ET that Richards only wears heels “on the red carpet or in situations where she only needs to wear them for a few minutes.”
“She isn’t out there jogging in her high heels. Kim will be prepared with the proper documentation [at the next court hearing],” the source added.
The reality star was supposed to complete 30 days of community service and attend 52 AA meetings as part of a plea deal for her arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel, in which she entered a guilty plea to one charge of resisting arrest.

In July of last year, Kim Richards shared with ET her journey to sobriety. The star had been struggling to stay sober and confessed that it has not been easy for her.
“I love sobriety,” Kim Richards said at the time. “I’ve always loved sobriety, and relapsing was very hard for me. It was not easy. 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.”
