According to NBC News, Teddi’s costar Dorit Kemsley was reportedly the victim of a home invasion robbery in Encino yesterday (October 27) evening. NBC News stated that approximately $1 million worth of items were taken from the property.
Police claim that two to three men smashed a window, crept into the home, went up the stairs, and found Kemsley in bed.
The victim told authorities the men claimed to be armed, ordered her out of bed and demanded her to lead them to jewelry and other valuables around the house, the sources said. At least one of the intruders threatened to kill her.
Kemsley reportedly did not see the vehicle the perpetrators escaped in. There were said to be security cameras around the home and police are investigating what could have been captured in the chaos. Aside from Mellencamp and Kemsley’s incidents, their RHOBH co-star Kyle Richards of the Halloween franchise was burgled in 2017. However, Richards’s family was not home when thieves ransacked their house and ran off with around $1 million worth of jewelry.

Kemsley is not the first member of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast to be a victim of this type of crime. Almost four years ago, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards’ home in Encino, the same neighborhood where Kemsley lives, was burglarized while she was on vacation.
The reality TV star told People in 2018 that “everything was taken.”
“Everything my mother, who passed away, had ever collected and saved to give to me — that I had always envisioned of passing on to my four daughters — was gone. Even my children’s baby bracelets. Obviously, those are the things that hurt the most, things that I can’t replace. They’re completely invaluable,” she said.
“The material things, yes they can be replaced, but they also hurt,” she continued. “I feel embarrassed to say that, but those are things that were either given to me by someone that I care about or that I worked really hard for. So, it hurts no matter what.”
