While I was out enjoying one of the most beautiful days of the fall so far, TMZ was writing article after article about Kingsley and Kim. First they wrote a story saying the dog has bitten four other people three of them in Kim’s home and one “on the set of RHOBH” lol at “the set.” Anyway, that was the trainer that Kingsley snapped at last season. TMZ interviewed the trainer who said the he and Bravo producers tried to convince Kim that Kingsley was too much for her to handle, but she would not listen. They also wrote about the Animal Control agency who has had contact with Kim and Kingsley on previous occasions who advised her to get her dog under control.
Despite what is apparently a slow day on TMZ (one dog bite, four stories in one day?), it does seem that the situation is more dire than originally thought. All the attention has forced Kim to make a public statement. Click through to read…
First off let me start by saying the safety and welfare of my family means the world to me. I love Alexia like she is my own child and have been in constant contact with my sister Kyle and niece. The events that lead up to Kingsley biting Alexia resulted from the girls entering my bedroom after I already told them my room was off limits. Alexia has been away from college for months and hasn’t seen Kingsley in a long time. Kingsley is used to the home being full of children and since the kids have gone away, the house has become quiet. While the two have been very close and friendly in the past, the dog has become very protective of me in the meantime. When guests are over Kinglsey stays in my bedroom and has been given access to a special fenced in area in my backyard. Anyone entering the house is made aware that the dog should not be bothered.
Why is an 18 year old wandering into her aunt’s bedroom with the door closed without her knowledge?
The second I realized Alexia had been bitten on the finger leaving a puncture mark on her thumb, I immediately called my sister, Kyle, and took her to the nearest emergency room. After the wound was cleaned and bandaged the girls went on with their day and I stayed in contact to make sure that my niece was ok. The one procedure that Alexia has had was to clean the wound to make sure it would not get infected.
TMZ is reporting two surgeries on her hand. I don’t think you overnight in the hospital to get a wound cleaned. Now the original paragraph and the entire statement is factually suspect. This statement was probably a mistake and will further piss Kyle off.
At this point I am looking at options to what the next step is for Kingsley. As many of you can relate, he is my best friend. This is a very difficult decision and time for all of us, but the safety of my family always comes first.
This breaks my heart. Banjo and I can relate a lot to Kim and Kingsley. We both share a quiet house where visitors are strongly discouraged. We have an easy, peaceful coexistence and if anything were to happen to him, I would be beside myself. I can’t imagine having to make a decision for him to live somewhere else. Or worse. I hope that if Kingsley does go, she can eventually get a new companion that is more suited to her. A nice easy going bassett hound maybe. Or a chocolate lab. Something with an easier temperament.
Now that reports of multiple bites are out, does that seal the deal that Kim will have to give up Kingsley?
