The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsDream Team” is back in action.

Kim Richards, who left the reality show earlier this year as she struggled with her sobriety, was spotted filming a scene for season 6 on Friday.

Richards, 51, filmed in a Beverly Hills park with her RHOBH pals Brandi Glanville, 42, and Yolanda Foster, 51.

Richards has struggled with substance abuse throughout her life and relapsed this year.

On Oct. 28, she was ordered by a Los Angeles judge to complete 300 hours of community service, three years probation and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings for her Target shoplifting case, which she was arrested for in August in Los Angeles after allegedly trying to carry out more than $600 worth of items. In September, Richards accepted a similar plea deal stemming from her April public intoxication arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Per her sentencing, Richards must also “continue treatment and follow recommendations for treatment including drug rehabilitation, therapy and medications,” according to court papers.

Last month, Richards opened up to Glanville about her renewed sobriety during an episode of Glanville’s podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered.

“Everything is good It’s a good time for me right now,” she said. “I’m really happy things are going good. …It was a rough time for a bit there but it’s just putting everything back in order and just really focusing on my family and me.”

Richards and Glanville, who also left the Bravo series, will continue to make appearances on the series, and both made cameos in the explosive trailer for the upcoming season.

In an interview with Howard Stern in July, Glanville shot down rumors she’d been fired from RHOBH and insisted she would only return to shoot scenes with her BFFs Foster and Richards. (“Otherwise, I don’t talk to the other ladies, and I don’t like them.”)

It looks like she got her wish!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns to Bravo on Dec. 1 at 9 p.m. ET.
