Former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member Kim Richards has pleaded no contest to shoplifting from a Los Angeles Target store.

Court records show Richards was sentenced Tuesday to serve three years on probation, attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and perform 300 hours of community labor.

She was also ordered to stay away from the Target store in Van Nuys where she was arrested in August.

Attorney Sara Caplan, who entered the plea on Richards’ behalf, declined comment Wednesday.

The 51-year-old former child actor received a nearly identical sentence in September after pleading no contest to resisting arrest after she was kicked out of a posh Beverly Hills restaurant in April.

Richards’ plea was first reported Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ.
