Kim Richards has already booked her first TV appearance since her arrest for public intoxication – but it won't be for a special edition of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Dr. Phil has snagged Richards for an interview following her arrest Thursday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
"I was angry and frightened and I was scared. I knew what I had done," Richards told Dr. Phil, according to an early transcript. "The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink."

Despite concern about her sobriety and her arrest last week for public intoxication, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is holding off going to rehab right now, a longtime family friend tells PEOPLE.
"As of now, she is saying no to rehab," says the friend. "People are trying to get her to go. A lot of people are worried about her."
Richards, 50, was arrested early Thursday morning after officers responded to "a report of a possible fight" at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel at around 1:30 a.m.
