Is Beverly Hills 'Housewife' Kim done with rehab?

Richard Mclaren / Bravo / Today

Has "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards really left rehab?

Radar Online and People are reporting yes, but a source close to the situation told us those stories aren't true. Richards is still at the facility and still seeking help, the source told us.

Bravo declined to comment.

Fans of the reality show have witnessed Kim's increasingly strange behavior this season, after sister and co-star Kyle Richards accused her of being an alcoholic during an emotional fight during the season one finale. Kim's behavior in season two has seemed to lend weight to the accusation, as she often appears to stumble, slur her speech and generally behave oddly. 

Fellow Beverly Hills "Housewife" Adrienne Maloof's plastic surgeon husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, said on the show he thought Kim sounded intoxicated after a strange phone conversation with her. And during an epic fight during on the episode featuring a game night with the girls, new castmate Brandi Glanville declared, "Kim is wasted out of her f------ mind!" and accused her of doing "crystal meth in the bathroom all night long."

But Kim also revealed on the show that there was a good reason for her somewhat loopy on-screen behavior. Before having a minor procedure done by Paul, she explained that she was taking Trazadone, Topomax and Lexapro, medications that the doctor said coule make people appear drunk.

Earlier reports state that Kim entered rehab earlier this month.
