The Bling Ring is back?!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have beautiful homes. Last year Kyle Richards was the victim of a home burglary and now Dorit Kemsley has confirmed she was among the celebrities who were targeted by a man who was stealing luxury items from star’s homes. This is another real life ‘Bling Ring.’ In addition to Dorit, celebrities targeted by 32-year-old Benjamin Eitan Ackerman include Usher, Jason Derulo and Adam Lambert. Dorit recently opened up about it on Twitter, “Crazy and true. So glad this guy is finally off the streets. I can sleep better now.” The swimwear designer and husband, PK, have their Beverly Hills home currently listed for sale on the market.
According to The Daily News, police say that the suspect would case homes during open houses and then would return to burglarize their residences afterwards. He stole upwards of more than 2,000 items including fine art, diamond jewelry, watches, handbags, etc. Apparently the items were found at his home and storage unit. Detective Jared Timmons revealed, “A lot of stuff still has to be verified. We have diamond necklaces. We have to see what type of diamonds they are, whose they are, and what the actual values are.”
Authorities say that the suspect looked the part. Apparently he would pose as an interested buyer or a real estate broker. “People didn’t challenge him when walked into their houses. They believed that he was a buyer. When he showed up, he was dressed to the nines. He acted the part. He was very slick,” said the detective. E! News noted that the value of the items he stole could be worth “multiple millions of dollars.”
Oh no! It’s so sad that this happens in the world. It doesn’t matter if someone is rich or poor, you don’t take their belongings or steal. I wonder when Dorit and PK will be moving? It’s good she can at least sleep in peace now, knowing that the suspect is in custody. I’m so excited for the new season to start next month!
Thoughts on this all? When do you think Dorit will move? Are you excited for RHOBH to return? Comment below!
