In case you havenâ€™t heard, the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have been filming the new season and there is already a lot of drama happening.
A source reveals that Dorit Kemsley is is â€œabsolutely devastatedâ€ by aÂ report that she adopted a dog from Lisa Vanderpumpâ€™s rescue organization, Vanderpump Dog Foundation, and then returned it to a shelter, infuriating Vanderpump when she found out and causing a rift between the two.
â€œThat story is completely false,â€ the insider reveals of the original report, but continues, â€œDorit did adopt a dog from Vanderpump Dog Foundation. She loves animals and has always been a huge supporter of Lisaâ€™s rescue efforts. Everything was great for awhile, the kids (son Jagger, 4, and daughter Phoenix, 2) loved the dog and everything was fine.â€
However, this summer before the cameras were rolling the dog bit Phoenix.
â€œIt was a bad bite,â€ the source tells PEOPLE. â€œIt was pretty traumatic. Dorit and PK talked it out and decided that the best thing to do was find a new loving home for the dog. They were heartbroken, but made the decision for the safety of their young kids.â€
The source says the Kemsleys found a home, but before placing the dog with its new family, Dorit called Vanderpump and told her what had happened before asking for her blessing. The source says Vanderpump understood.
Unfortunately, says the source, unbeknownst to Kemsley, the new family didnâ€™t work out and the dog was brought to a shelter where a microchip traced it back to the Vanderpump Dog Foundation.
Weeks later, after filming had begun on the show, Vanderpump broke the news to Kemsley that the dog had been taken to a shelter.
â€œLisa caught Dorit completely off guard by bringing it up,â€ the source shares. â€œDorit had no idea that the dog wasnâ€™t still with the family.â€
Now, the source Â close to Dorit says Kemsley is â€œreally hurtâ€ by the whole situation with Vanderpump.
â€œDorit is devastated by this,â€ says the source. â€œLisa did eventually acknowledge that she believes Dorit had the best of intentions. But right now, Dorit is unconvinced of the same with Lisa.â€
And ultimately, says the source, â€œthe Kemsleys are avid supporters of the Vanderpump Dog Foundation and they hope that personal vendettas donâ€™t get in the way of the charity.â€
Lisa was approached by a TMZ cameraman outside her place of business and was asked about the story.
â€œShe did not give it to a shelter; Iâ€™m gonna set the record straight with that, thatâ€™s not true at all,â€ Vanderpump said. â€œShe gave it to somebody who really wanted the dog, who assured her it was going to a loving home, and thatâ€™s what Dorit thought. She would not drop the dog off at a shelter.â€
Added Vanderpump: â€œDorit did nothing wrongâ€¦ It didnâ€™t happen the way itâ€™s been reported and I wonâ€™t have that said about my friend.â€
I guess we will have to watch the new season to see whoâ€™s telling the truth?
