Though relationships between fellow Housewives can sometimes be contentious, support for Kim Richards has been pouring in from her RHOBH costars following her arrest for public intoxication on Thursday.
“Kim, love having you as a BFF,” Brandi Glanville wrote in a blog post for Bravo on Thursday. Though she did not specifically address Richards’ arrest, she went on to write, “I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.”
Glanville, 42, also Tweeted her support for Kim. “Real friends are there in the good times, the bad times and especially the worst times,” she wrote following a Tweet thanking Richards, 50, for donating to her children’s school auction “in the middle of all she has going on! So proud of her.”
Indeed, “Brandi cares about Kim a lot, and she feels terrible that she is going through this,” a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE.
Eileen Davidson has also spoken out in support of Richards. “I feel badly for Kim Richards and her family my thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time,” she Tweeted on Thursday afternoon.
Lisa Vanderpump responded with a bittersweet Tweet: “U can’t help somebody til they want to help themselves,I know for sure that the sisters will always support each other when the time comes.”
Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel after officers responded to “a report of a possible fight,” according to a statement released by the Beverly Hills Police Department. When they arrived on the scene, Richards “was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior, cursing at the officers and passively resist[ing] arrest.”
Leading up to her arrest, Richards had been acting “increasingly out of it,” a source close to the family previously told PEOPLE. “It will never get better.”
