'Real Housewives' Dog Attack Puts Girl in Hospital

A pit bull owned by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Kim Richards attacked her niece, sending her to the hospital. INSIDE EDITION has the story.

First he attacked the dog trainer, now the pit bull owned by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has attacked her young niece.

The 18-year-old, Alexia, had to be hospitalized.

The dog attack happened at Richard's house while her niece was visiting. The teenager has now undergone one surgery and will need another to repair a tendon in her hand.

Alexia is the daughter of Kyle Richards, who also appears on The Real Housewives series.

Earlier this year, during a Real Housewives reunion special, Kyle Richards voiced her fears about her sister's pit bull.

"When she doesn't answer her phone or a text I get worried the dog maybe did something," said Kyle Richards on the reunion.

After he was attacked, trainer David Utter took the dog Kingsley for a seven-day canine boot camp.

Utter told INSIDE EDITION, "I explained to Kim, 'This dog is so spoiled with no boundaries.' I was called in on the show and was told that this dog had already bitten several Bravo film crew."
