It’s been a few months since Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kim Richards wrapped up her stay in rehab, but now a source close to the ex-wild child says she’s doing better than ever. The insider tells Radar Online that Kim is “stronger, spunkier,” and — perhaps most importantly — totally single. Kim’s really cleaned up her act, in more ways than one!

"Kim's post-rehab transformation is awesome," the source says, explaining that the 48-year-old reality star is working hard to stay healthy and “making everyone around her really happy.”  (As you may recall, Kim’s friends and family were very concerned about her well-being just before she entered treatment.)

Kim’s sister Kyle Richards was also worried about her relationship with boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld: he had a shady past, which included a DUI charge. Luckily, Kim has moved out of Ken’s house and is currently not dating anyone. The source says Kim’s happy flying solo and plans to “stay single until she finds the right guy.”

As for whether the single mother will return to the hit Bravo show now that she’s unattached, the insider says the reality star would like to come back, although “a lot of people around her are telling her not to.” We wonder if her sister is one them?
