Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards’ daughter Alexia Umansky was attacked by her sister and fellow cast member Kim Richards’ pit bull Kingsley.
TMZ revealed that it was Kingsley, a dog who has been seen on the show going after a trainer, that hurt 18-year-old Alexia so badly that she required 2 surgeries and a weekend stay at the hospital. This was speculated by many fans of RHOBH after Kyle posted the following status to Facebook without identifying the animal:
Regarding Alexia : She was attacked by a dog and has to have surgery. As always , she is trying to make the best out of a bad situation . Thank you for your thoughts & well wishes <3
The attack occurred early Saturday at Kim’s L.A. area home. Kyle, Alexia and other members of their family had been inside the house for a while, when the dog went into attack mode out of nowhere. The dog bit Alexia numerous times, but the worst was on her right hand. The animal bit through her thumb right to the bone. She’s had one surgery and will undergo another.
Their report went on to indicate that Kingsley is still residing with Kim and that Animal Control was never contacted.
Crazy enough, Bravo has a video of Kyle talking about Kingsley’s violent tendencies entitled “Is Kyle Worried Kim’s Dog Will Get Violent?”
When asked about Kingsley, Kyle said, “I do worry a little bit to be honest. You hear these stories and I think, ‘Oh my gosh.'”
