Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards will appear in the next season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars with her secret boyfriend of six years, Wynn Katz, and she says she is in a “peaceful place” now that her Housewives days are over. This week, Richards was at the Boot Camp premiere, and she talked about how happy she is to no longer be on RHOBH.
“Right now, I’m really at a peaceful place in my life, being a mom and a grandmother,” said Richards. “It’s just so amazing for me. I like not having the negativity, being at peace, waking up in the morning and going to watch my grandson or having him for a week. I’m super grateful for that.”

The 53-year-old starred on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for five seasons alongside her sister, Kyle Richards, and she also came back as a guest star for two more.
Richards and Katz walked the red carpet and attended the celebration for Boot Camp: Reality Stars last Wednesday, and their debut shocked many since no one knew they were a couple. Richards explained that they simply managed to keep it private, but it felt recently like it had stalled, and she thought the reality show would be their shot to fix things.
But just because Richards is returning to reality TV, that doesn’t mean she will be going back to RHOBH anytime soon. She says she doesn’t miss the drama and arguing, but it is always possible that she could come back and “stir up a little something.”
However, according to Radar Online, Richards is already stirring up drama outside of the show because multiple sources say that she is lying about her relationship with Katz, and it is a sham.
A close family friend says that Richards has not had a boyfriend for six years and it is a “complete lie.” And, one of her relatives is apparently saying that Richards started dating Katz two years ago.

In a December 2013 interview, Richards said that she was ready for love and she was finding time to focus on herself. She said that her focus had always been her children, but she had finally started dating and met a nice guy. But, she made it clear she had just started her “dating situation.”
She also said in 2015 that she was in a relationship with entrepreneur Todd Jason Voisine.
Richards and Katz will be part of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars which premieres September 7th on WE TV.
As for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, actress Denise Richards (no relation to Kim Richards or Kyle Richards) is joining the cast for season nine, and it will be premiering on Bravo later this year.
