Kim Richards’ pit bull has reportedly been banned from appearing on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Following two reported attacks, a source claims the dog, named Kingsley, will no longer be seen on the Bravo reality series.
On January 26, a Radar Online source reported the following.
“The cast wants to make sure that none of them become the next victim! They have asked producers to ban Kingsley from any future filming, including the upcoming reunion. The dog isn’t safe to be around anyone, and the last thing the show needs is a scandal from a dog bite. If there is any talk of Kingsley coming to the reunion, the cast won’t be anywhere near him.”
At the end of last year, Kim Richards’ dog began making headlines after attacking the daughter of Richards’ sister, Kyle.
In November, 2014, Alexia Umansky was rushed to the hospital, where she went under the knife twice, after Kingsley bit her hand. A short time later, a second alleged victim, 80-year-old Kay Rozario, came forward, claiming she too had been attacked by the dog.
Months later, Richards is dealing with a handful of lawsuits, one by Rozario and another by her former trainer, who claims he was not properly paid for the time he spent with her “dangerous” dog.
As the Inquisitr reported, Kyle Schwab is ready to take Kim Richards to court over the unpaid bill.
“Kyle is getting ready to take Kim to court over the training session,” a friend of Schwab’s told Radar Online last week.
“Kyle’s only option now is to take her to small claims court over this. She has cut off all communication with him and refuses to pay him for training Kingsley. It’s unfortunate, because Kyle did have some success with training the dog, but that dog is one of the most dangerous pit bulls Kyle has ever worked with and during the session, Kingsley tried to attack him. Kyle is probably this dog’s last chance. Many people refer to him as the ‘pit bull whisperer’ because of his success in training that breed. But no one knows where Kingsley is now. He could be back living with her again, because she has gone radio silent on Kyle or on any of the trainers we know.”
As for Lisa Vanderpump’s dog, Giggy, Radar‘s source claimed he will continue to film for the show.
“Giggy is always welcome at any of the RHOBH events. He is so well behaved and is a part of the production family.”
