Kim Richards is still in rehab, according to her rep.

Despite earlier reports she had left treatment and was home with her sister Kyle, she was, in fact, visited by Kyle.

"She's doing okay," a source tells PEOPLE of the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. "Everyone is hoping for the best."

Kim's daughter Kimberly as well as Kyle's three oldest daughters were part of the visit. "They were all happy to see each other," adds the source.

This is not the 47-year-old's first time in rehab. "But every time is a new time, and everyone just hopes this sticks and that she gets the help she needs," another source told PEOPLE when Kim sought treatment for alcohol abuse and "other problems" this December.

Kim's "bizarre behavior" as it played out on the reality show on which she and her sister appear was attributed to her prescription drug use in November, but Kyle has also called her an alcoholic.

And earlier in the season, costar Brandi Glanville accused Kim of being "wasted out of her f---ing mind" during a game-night episode. Kim denied it, and one of the season's biggest fights ensued.
