“I hurt my back and can not move,” Richards wrote on the photo of her in bed with a food tray in her lap and the TV on in the background. “This is where I will be for the unforeseeable future.”
Then, on June 10, she posted again, this time with a video of Luna and River, her two German Shepard dogs, snoozing at the foot of her bed.
“These babies won’t leave my side. Not even to eat or use the bathroom #germanshepherds,” she wrote.
“Maybe not the best thing to watch when I can’t move,” she captioned a video of herself watching the comedy “Bridesmaids.”
Richards has remained tight-lipped about her injury.
Richards’ most recent public appearance was at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Richards went on the red carpet with many other Housewives to give an award on the show less than a week before her injury was revealed.
This isn’t the first time Richards has posted about an injury on social media.
Richards was brought to the hospital in July 2021 after walking into a hive of bees. Richards has a severe allergic reaction.
“So this happened yesterday… I walked into a hive of bees and was stung multiple times,” she wrote on social media sharing the security footage of the incident. “I can laugh at this now, but what you can’t see is that they were in my hair and were literally chasing me. My landline wouldn’t dial 911 and my epi pen was defective and wouldn’t open.”
“I always say, ‘I don’t know,’ and each season I think, ‘Well, maybe I can do one more,’” Richards told E! News at the 2022 NBCUniversal Upfronts in New York City. “And sometimes I’m just like, ‘How can I keep doing this?’ especially when I get really upset, like this last season when we ended.”
Richards went on to say that she didn’t think she’d be able to return for season 13 of the show.
“I was like, ‘There’s absolutely no way,’” she told the outlet. “‘I’m done. I’m finished. I want to live my life in peace. I can’t take this.’”
Richards also discussed her on-again, off-again relationship with Kathy Hilton, her sister and former co-star.
“It’s so complicated and complex. All I can say is, we’re family and we’re going to have these moments,” she told Page Six at the 2022 NBCUniversal Upfronts. “I feel like my sisters and I, we have arguments, we make up, we’re blood. I don’t know if everyone is like that. The fact that we’re on television complicates things.”
