KIM RICHARDS is blaming her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality show for causing her drunken arrest last week. By contract, Kim had to watch their reunion special so she could blog about it. While doing so she had to re-live all the nasty things that went down and it sent her into a fit of depression and she turned to the bottle. However, Kim may not have to worry about that much longer as producers feel Kim's substance abuse issues are becoming a serious problem and are considering giving her the boot. There are also legal concerns because, if something happens to Kim, Bravo could be blamed for her going off the rails.

Ben and Jerry's ice cream is getting the cold shoulder over a new partnership with New Belgium Brewing Co. to brew an ice-cream flavored beer. The executive director and CEO of Alcohol Justice called it "a crass, corporate greedy move to put a brand name like Ben & Jerry's on a beer. It's bad for children -- who will start looking at beer as the next step after ice cream." However, the public doesn't seem to be quite as outraged as it was called a great example of ridiculous internet outrage. Last month, Ben & Jerry's co-founder Ben Cohen said in an interview that he's considered the possibility of a marijuana-infused ice cream where it's legal.
Pete Rose is returning to baseball as an analyst for Fox Sports. Rose isn't permitted to broadcast inside Major League stadiums under the terms of his 1989 ban from baseball, but he can appear on pregame and postgame shows from Fox studios.
Nacina Walker worked at the Decatur, Texas Wal-Mart and was well known by police for being helpful to them when it came to investigating thefts at the store. However, Walker may not have been so helpful when it came to investigating the biggest theft in the store's history. Walker allegedly devised a scheme where she would create bogus receipts, then make returns and pocket the cash. Starting small in January 2013, Walker would pocket a few bucks each time. However, the size of the returns grew until one day last October she cashed in an $8,000 refund. That caught everyone's attention and Walker later told police she did it to help pay bills, which will be a lot more difficult now that she's lost her job and faces jail time.
