Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is tending to the home fires after one of her four children was released from an involuntary psychiatric hold, RadarOnline reports. The unidentified young adult was taken away in July after neighbors spotted him/her naked in the street babbling. Richards, a self-professed alcoholic, has four children with three different men, ranging in age from 18 to early 20s (Brooke, Whitney, Chad and Kimberly). Her sisters Kathy Hilton and Kyle Richards are said to be helping out.

A couple’s pain

Bad news for Dancing with the Stars contestant Jack Osbourne, 27. His wife, Lisa Stelly, suffered a miscarriage in her second trimester.

Stelly, also 27, took to her blog to confirm the news: “I have been dreading this announcement ... I needed some time before being able to say it,” she wrote on her blog, Raddest Mom.

The couple, who married in October last year, are parents to 16-month old daughter Pearl. The sex was determined to be a boy this time.

War of words

Hartford’s mayor thinks Dave Chappelle should “quit whining” about his disastrous gig.

Chappelle walked off a stage last week after being heckled in the state capital. Audio posted on TMZ.com shows the comedian telling the fans in Chicago, to cheers and laughter, that he would never again stop in Hartford, not even for gas. Mayor Pedro Segarra called Chappelle’s remarks “immature and inappropriate.”

Accidents happen

High heels can be hazardous to your health. While performing in Corpus Christi, Texas, Carrie Underwood got her stiletto caught in the hem of her long shirt and fell backwards onto the stage. Despite a sprained foot (a pic was later Tweeted), the country star kept right on singing Undo It.

Trouble in Philly

Hop-hop star A$AP Rocky is facing an allegation of assault during the Made in America festival in Philadelphia. The district attorney’s office says a concertgoer claimed the 24-year-old Harlem-bred rapper, whose given name is Rakim Mayers, slapped her Saturday as he walked through the crowd of dancing fans and tried to wave some of them away.

The private criminal complaint states the rapper landed an open-palm slap square on the woman’s face, giving her whiplash.

A message left at the artist’s publicity agency was not immediately returned to The Associated Press.
