Richards, 51, and her 20-year-old daughter Kimberly, are filming a new reality show for Lifetime, the network confirms to PEOPLE.

Details of the show are being kept under wraps for now, but the venture is promising, according to an insider.

“Kim knows how important it is for her to be sober,” says the source. “And it’s good for her to have an outlet, something to keep her busy. She is also getting professional guidance, which is a positive sign.”

And Richards herself, who is living with her ex husband Monty Brinson in Los Angeles, “is feeling okay,” says the insider. “Everyone’s just thinking, ‘Let’s wait and see.’ ”
