After her arrest for public intoxication on Tuesday, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards must confront whether continuing her life in the spotlight is healthy.
Though Bravo has yet to weigh in on Richards's future on the popular franchise, at least one sobriety expert suggests that dismissing the 50-year-old former actress may be the best way to help her help herself.

Kim Richards's arrest for public intoxication is hurting the people she loves the most – her four children, Brooke, Whitney, Chad and Kimberly.
"Kim's children are very disappointed in her," a source tells PEOPLE. "They're so upset. This is hard for them."
According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 50, was arrested at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday morning, and "was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior cursing at the officers and passively resisted arrest."

In the hours leading up to her arrest for public intoxication, trespassing and more, a source at the Beverly Hills Hotel tells PEOPLE that Kim Richards, who spent time in a treatment facility for alcohol abuse issues in 2011, had been drinking.
Richards, 50, is a "frequent guest" at the Beverly Hills Hotel where she was arrested early Thursday morning, says the source. She dined in the Polo Lounge and then stayed for "several cocktails by the bar. She was drinking vodka."
Adds the source: "Later in the evening, she became aggressive, loud and insulting to other guests. It was clear that she was very drunk."

Kyle's 18-year-old daughter, Alexia, was bitten by the dog – which has reportedly attacked five people – and hospitalized.
"She decided to Instagram it and make a public display of it," said an angry Kim, yelling, "You're horrible!"
