Reality star Kyle Richards’ daughter is recovering from a horrific attack by her sister's dog.
Alexia, whose mother is a star of hit reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was at her aunt Kim’s LA home on Saturday morning when the attack occurred.
According to reports, the 18-year-old suffered serious injuries, with the most serious coming from a bite to the right hand. Apparently the pit bull bit into Alexia’s thumb, going right into the bone.
Alexia was apparently taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, where she underwent multiple surgeries for her injuries.
The attack will come as no surprise to the family, given pit bull Kingsley’s history of vicious behaviour.
The dog was previously seen attacking his trainer on one episode of the Richards’ reality show.
While neither Kyle nor Kim have commented on the shocking incident, sources say that the authorities were not contacted because the family want to keep the matter private.
