Kyle Richards is firing back after losing over $1 million in a burglary last month. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star just shared a photo of her 3 large dogs on social media, hinting that any would-be thieves would have their hands full if they tried to break into her home once again.
According to TMZ, the reality star shared a pic of her three dogs shortly after a training session. Although Richards’ German Shepherd would make a great guard dog, her other two pets look like they have more lick than bark. It’s probably safe to bet that Richards is doing a lot more obedience training than anything else. Regardless, Richards is clearly trying to warn people that they might get messed up if they trespass on her property.
According to Bravo TV, thieves broke into Richards’ home last year. At the time, Richards and her husband, Mauricio Umansky were on a trip in Aspen, Colorado. The thieves got away with over $150,000 worth of watches, plus hundreds of thousands in other jewelry.
The couple’s dogs were not at the house during the break-in. Richards’ dogs might not have bitten the intruders, but we’re pretty sure that they would have barked up a storm. That might not have prevented the burglary, but you never know.
“Nothing replaces Family,” Umansky wrote on social media shortly after the theft. “They can steal your belongings, but they can’t steal your memories or your love.”
TMZ is reporting that the thieves who broke into Richards’ home were professionals and knew exactly what they were doing. A police department source revealed that the criminals knew where everything of value was located and how to gain access to the house undetected. The thieves used a ladder to reach the balcony of the home, then broke a window and raided the couple’s master bedroom.
Inside they found around $1 million worth of jewelry, including a set of earrings that Umansky had Andy Cohen give to Richards on the set of Watch What Happens Live. Police are still looking for the intruders and do not think it was an inside job.
In addition to the three dogs, Kyle Richards and her husband have hired a security guard full time.
