Another "Real Housewife" has a dark past, reports the New York Post.
Kim Richards, one of the stars of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," is known for being a divorcee who clings to her children and has managed to keep some details of her past hidden, the story says.
When Richards, a former child star, was 27 years old, she was planning to marry commodities salesman John J. Collett, the story says. But in Oct. 1991, he was shot to death by a hit man outside a deli in California, a murder believed to be the fallout of a business scheme that went awry, the article notes. The hitman was sentenced to 30 years to life in 1993 after prosecutors proved it was a paid hit, the article notes.
