Kyle Richards went through a traumatic and emotional experience, when there was a huge break-in at her mansion in California back in December while she was on vacation with family in Aspen. Over $1 million dollars in jewelry was stolen, along with all of her designer handbags. Kyle has recently revealed that none of the stolen items have been recovered. She shared at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, “Everything except what I had on my body” was taken.
According to Bravo, Kyle also shared that none of the stolen items have been recovered. Recently fans suggested on Twitter that Kyle should look in places like local jewelry shops in case her stolen items are being sold there, she agreed and asked fans for help. Kyle tweeted, “If anyone happens to recognize something of mine, please let me know.” She added, “Could be online, pawnshops, resale shops.”
Kyle explained that “what hurts the most” about the burglary is that many of the items that were stolen were passed down to her by her late mother, Kathleen Richards. “I wanted to pass them down to my girls,” Kyle said. It’s more emotional for her because these were family heirlooms. Kyle’s niece, Paris Hilton, also experienced a home burglary a few years back – that resulted in her family jewels being stolen as well. That incident, and the press coverage surrounding it, inspired Sofia Coppola’s film ‘The Bling Ring.’
Kyle revealed at the reunion that she is still very shook up about the invasion, so much that she is not sure if she and her family will remain at their new house in Encino. Kyle shared, “After we were burglarized, it really rocked my world, you know, having things taken from me. Hopefully, I’m gonna get past it and it’s gonna be amazing. I have spoken to so many people who were burglarized who have been burglarized, and they get over it and are fine and it’s a beautiful house. We’ll see, but I don’t know yet.”
I feel for Kyle. I hope she gets her family heirlooms recovered. It’s very sad and emotional when things that belong to your loved ones are taken and you don’t know where they are – it’s hard. I’m glad Kyle is staying strong for her family. Their new home is beautiful! Sending you lots of love, Kyle!
