I read about Kyle Richard’s daughter being attacked by a dog the other day and almost posted about it and included the weird picture above [EDIT: Used a different photo, the weird photo is after the break] mostly because I wanted to discuss WTF the guy in the picture is doing with his leg. OOPS changed my mind on the photo. See below. Kyle posted on her Facebook page about the incident but gave very little details. At first she didn’t even say why Alexia, age 18, was in the hospital having a pajama party with her friends. Is it me or does Cedars-Sinai have some lax visitation rules. A sleepover in a hospital? Eventually, Kyle said she was there because she was attacked by a dog.
Today, TMZ is reporting that the dog that attacked her is Kingsley, Kim Richards’ beloved but untrained pit bull. The dog allegedly bit Alexia numerous times and required her to have surgery. One of the bites was to her hand that you can see is bandaged in the photos. No word on if there will be any permanent issues with her hand.
We are told that animal control was not called and the family wanted to keep the matter private. And by private they clearly mean publishing pictures all over social media. Now that the story is out, they have a problem. First of all, the dog bite will most likely have to be reported in order for insurance to cover the cost of the surgeries. This will label Kingsley as a vicious dog should he bite someone again in the future. Kingsley most likely will bite again in the future given that he has not been properly trained. The most likely next victim is Kim. Kim is extremely attached to the dog.
This is a really bad situation for the entire family. I’m sure Kyle is upset about Alexia being bitten and will keep her family away from Kingsley at this point, but she also has to be worried about Kim’s safety. On the other hand if the dog is removed from Kim’s house, Kim may well spiral out of control and fall back into bad habits (assuming she already hasn’t done that as some rumors suggest.)
Here is hoping Alexia comes out of this without any lasting issues and Kim does as well.
What do you think should happen with Kingsley? For now, he is still at home with Kim.
