Kim Richards' ex-husband has come to her defense for the second time this month.
Monty Brinson, who previously spoke out after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested for allegedly shoplifting at the beginning of August, wrote a long, heartfelt Instagram post about his ex-wife on Monday.
"One day the people that didn’t believe in you will tell everyone how they met you. That quote is in honor of @kimrichards11," he wrote. "All I will say at this time besides being best friends, and personally a person who has a great heart is thankful to all her fans and friends for believing in her."

Though they've clashed in the past, Lisa Vanderpump only wishes Kim Richards well in the wake of her second arrest in five months.
Because of her ongoing struggles with sobriety, Richards is not returning for the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – a decision Vanderpump supports.
"I'm sorry that Kim's not here because of the situation. That's the thing, but I think that her sobriety is more important than any reality show," she told PEOPLE at her luncheon benefiting the American Humane Association and the Hero Dog Awards (Sponsored by Vanderpump Pets) at PUMP in West Hollywood on Thursday. "I think a lot of people recognize that fact, and that's probably why she's not in this season."

It's been a bumpy year for Kim Richards.
The former star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who left rehab in June, was arrested on Sunday for allegedly shoplifting close to $600 from Target, and a source close to Richards says her behavior of late has been increasingly bizarre.
"No one understands what she's doing," says the source, who adds that Richards is still not speaking to sister Kyle. "Her family is so concerned. And they're fed up. She's cut herself off from friends and family who care about her."

After seasons at the center of the drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville's exit isn't exactly surprising.
The former model and mom of two won't return as a regular cast member, PEOPLE confirmed Thursday. The news comes after Glanville fought with costars Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna throughout season 5.
"Brandi got too big for her britches. She was a diva, and it came around to bite her," a source tells PEOPLE. "By the end, she couldn't get along with anyone, and no one wanted to shoot with her."
