Update: E! is reporting that Kim’s son Chad Davis was also at Kyle’s house and let the dog out of the bathroom where he was being restrained deliberately and said something about someone getting bitten if everyone doesn’t leave. This makes no sense to me, and there are some inaccuracies in their story, so who knows. Why would Chad be there if Kim was getting ready to film? Why would Kim be getting dressed at Kyle’s in the first place? So much of this story doesn’t make sense.
Update 2: TMZ has the opposite info about the bathroom saying that the victim was afraid of the dog and hid in the bathroom and was coaxed out of the bathroom after being reassured the dog is fine. This is an odd story.
On Thursday July 7th, a friend of Kim Richards, Paige Elizabeth Sanderson, filed suit against Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Bruce London in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault, battery, and gross negligence after being brutally attacked by Kingsley. According to The Wrap, Sanderson was invited by Kim to meet her at Kyle’s house last April to help her get ready to film a RHOBH segment of some sort. Kim brought Kingsley with her to Kyle’s home.
Already I have so many WTF type questions. Kim still has Kingsley? Wasn’t he supposed to be off with a trainer? Kyle agreed to let Kingsley back in her house after the dog bit here child? What was being filmed in April that involved Kim? Does this mean she was going to come back as a housewife?
“Kingsley lunged at Plaintiff and bit and held onto her lower abdomen and crotch, tearing off her leggings and underwear and ripped out portions of flesh between her legs and genitalia,” according to documents obtained by The Wrap. Sanderson claims “severe physical injuries, emotional distress and pain and suffering and was required to seek, did seek and continues to seek medical treatment and surgeries for her injuries.”
But here is the most egregious OMG! part of this story. Again, from The Wrap:
Worse yet, Sanderson claims, Richards and her attorney Bruce London “formulated a scheme” to get Kingsley off the hook for the alleged attack. Rather than calling 911, the suit alleges that the pair hatched a plan in which London would drive Sanderson to the hospital, Richards would pay her medical bills, and Sanderson would tell hospital staff that a stray dog, not Kingsley, bit her.
The suit further alleges that London “fraudulently filled out hospital papers to ensure the hospital staff knew that it was a stray dog attack, a statement Defendant London knew was not true, all to his personal financial gain.”
This is just UNBELIEVABLE! Can that attorney be disbarred for this deception if the allegation turns out to be true? This is not the first time Kim has refused to dial 911. Kay Rozario also made the same sort of claim. Kay won around $8K in her judgment to cover her medical bills in a default judgment. Kim did not acknowledge the lawsuit in any way. She just ignored the whole thing. I read recently that Kay Rozario was appealing her settlement due to continued emotional distress and limited use of her hand. I imagine the new case spurred her to file the appeal. I had forgotten about this dog bite which happened after Kay Rozario. How has this dog not been put down? This is the fourth or fifth time it has attacked someone? Why would Kim continue to take him around people? Who tells a woman whose vagina was just bitten that she can’t call 911? Why didn’t the woman call 911 herself?
