Despite reports earlier today that she’d checked out, People says that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is still in rehab, and received a visit from her sister Kyle today. And People’s anonymous source on the matter doesn’t sound very optimistic:

“She’s doing okay,” the source tells the mag. “Everyone is hoping for the best.”

We hope, for her sake and ours (she better be at this season’s reunion!), that the best happens and Kim makes a full recovery. Read on for more of the latest from the land of the Housewives:

Speaking of That Reunion…
Mark your calendars and brace yourselves. The finale of this heavy season of RHOBH is slated for January 23, with the reunion special set to air the following Monday, January 30.

Sneak Peek: Monday’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, “Leis and Lies”
In case you or your DVR missed it when it aired, Bravo was kind enough to post the 15 minute preview for Monday’s brand-new RHOBH episode online. The episode continues the drama of Kyle’s White Party, when Taylor and Russell Armstrong were kicked out after Russell threatened to sue Camille after she said on-camera that Russell had beaten up Taylor. Now we see the aftermath, including a bone-chilling moment when Russell claims what Camille said was an “out and out lie,” and Taylor says, “What Camille said was an exaggeration, but it certainly wasn’t a lie.” Meanwhile, Adrienne, Lisa, Kyle and Dana debrief the drama, while Camille and Kim get crazy on the dancefloor. Watch the three-part video here.

Another Sneak Peek: The Call from Taylor that “May Change Everything”
After Lisa out-Britishes herself talking about Brandi’s teeny weeny bikini (‘ello darling, ram it up ‘er ass, we’re on holiday, bloody hell!) Taylor calls the girls with a bombshell. This preview, plus this one in which Taylor says “My marriage is over,” makes us pretty sure we know what the news is: That Taylor had finally decided to leave Russell.

Holiday Haute-ness
Christmas wasn’t over for the Beverly Hills housewives on December 27. Taylor tweeted this photo of herself, Camille, Kyle and Adrienne posing in lavish gowns in front of a Christmas tree for a Life & Style shoot. “Nice to be with the girls at this time of year,” she added.

And Now Jill Zarin, with the Quote of the Day: “My Hanukah menorah saved me.”
Every night’s a crazy night with Jill. It really is, as she says, “unfortunate that the cameras don’t follow [her] around anymore.” But losing her Bravo job didn’t keep Jill from dropping almost $30,000 on Elizabeth Taylor’s precious jewels.
