Actor, Presenter
Kimberly "Kim" Richards (born September 19, 1964) is an American actress. She is a former child actress, and currently a television personality on the TV series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Beginning her acting career at the age of four months in a diaper advertisement, Richards made her television debut in 1970 as Prudence on Nanny and the Professor. She then starred in films Escape to Witch Mountain; No Deposit, No Return; Assault on Precinct 13; The Car and Return from Witch Mountain, garnering the title of the "Disney Girl". Richards has also appeared significantly in television films and in recurring roles in television series, including Police Woman, Little House on the Prairie, Dukes of Hazzard, Love Boat, Diff'rent Strokes, Magnum, P.I., and Medical Center. Richards took a hiatus from acting in 1990 to raise her children. Upon her return to acting Richards starred in films Black Snake Moan and Race to Witch Mountain. Since the series commenced in 2010, Richards has been a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. --- Kim Richards was born in Mineola, New York, the daughter of Kenneth E. Richards (1935–1998) and Kathleen Dugan (1938–2002). The couple separated in 1972 and Kathleen later remarried. Richards' sisters are the actresses Kathy Hilton (born 1959) and Kyle Richards (born 1969). She graduated from Imperial High School in Imperial, California in 1983. Socialites Nicky and Paris Hilton are her nieces, daughters of her half-sister, Kathy. She is of Welsh and Irish ancestry. Her career began during her childhood in the early 1970s. From 1970–1971, she starred as Prudence Everett in the television series Nanny and the Professor, with costars Juliet Mills, Richard Long, David Doremus and Trent Lehman. She also starred in several Disney films, including Escape to Witch Mountain, No Deposit, No Return and Return from Witch Mountain. She starred in an episode of Little House on the Prairie as Olga Nordstrom, Laura Ingalls' friend with one leg shorter than the other, whom her Pa fitted with a handmade wooden heel on her shoe that allowed her to run and play normally with the other children. --- In July 1985, Richards married supermarket-franchise heir G. Monty Brinson, who is now a professional poker player. Their daughter Brooke was born in February 1986. Richards and Brinson divorced, but they shared custody of Brooke and remain friends. Richards' second husband was oil heir Gregg Davis, son of oil tycoon and Dynasty inspiration Marvin Davis. Davis and Richards had two children together: daughter Whitney and son Chad. In 1991, immediately after Richards’ separation from Davis, Richards began dating commodities salesman John J. Collett. Collett was a central figure in a large scam, involving eight thousand elderly investors and nearly $150 million in losses. On October 28, 1991 Collett was murdered by a hit man outside of Brent’s Deli, located in the San Fernando Valley community of Northridge. Collett and Richards were speaking on the phone whilst the shooting occurred. The ordeal had a deep impact on Richards, who has opened up and spoken about Collett's murder on an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Richards went on to a longterm relationship with aircraft-parts supplier John Jackson, who became the father of her fourth child, Kimberly, in 1995. Richards currently resides in Los Angeles.
