Kyle Richards' anxiety just through the roof.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 55, had a major freak out after she was trapped in her parked car with a rat perched on her side-view mirror on Monday, May 13.

Richards, who has talked openly about her anxiety on the Bravo reality show and in the press, posted an expletive-filled video on her Instagram account.

"Oh my God," she screams multiple times.

"Please help me. What is happening?" she exclaims. "I've got to get out of my car!"

She momentarily collects herself, saying "I need some to help me here." She even bangs on her windshield to get a passerby's attention but is ignored.

"I need that man to help me but he didn't hear me knock," she cries.

Richards explained in the caption how she found herself in the hairy situation.

"This happened to me today. I stopped for coffee & was sitting in my car looking at s," Richards wrote. "Now, before you judge my reaction (yes, a disclaimer is coming) know that at first my passenger side window was DOWN and and I was afraid to put my car in reverse because my rear view mirrors would move potentiall -

y creating a worse scenario. And I was too afraid to put my legs down where the gas pedal is in case there was a point of entry down there 😆🤷🏻‍♀️ I also couldn’t feel my legs."

When one viewer asked how the situation was resolved, Richards wrote, "He would not leave!! Maybe five minutes after I stop the video he dropped down and I did not know where to! So I zoomed out and had to pull over and park for 20 minutes until I could feel my legs again."

At least one person found the video amusing. Richards' daughter, Sophia Umansky, replied with a string of laughing and crying laughing emojis.

Of course, Richards is no stranger to scary situations, having appeared in the original Halloween as a child actor and its sequel as an adult. But that was all just movie make-believe.

Richards' incident comes after a woman in Australia was forced to drive around with a venomous snake in her car after four failed attempts to remove it.
