The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kicked off Season 12 with a rundown of the October 2021 home invasion that occurred at Dorit and Paul “PK” Kemsley’s Encino home. The show featured the aftermath of the scary incident, during which Dorit was reportedly held at gunpoint.
“The victim was inside the residence at the time and was confronted by the suspects. Both suspects threatened to kill her as she pleaded for her life and the lives of her young children,” the LAPD stated. “In fear for her safety, the victim complied with the suspects’ demands and directed them to valuables. The suspects took high-end handbags, jewelry, and watches.”
Viewers watched as Dorit worked to recover from the terrifying ordeal — but not all were sold on the details of the story.
Dorit’s cast mates, Erika Jayne, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and RHOBH alum, Teddi Mellencamp, were snapped arriving at the reality star’s home the day after the incident, per a report by the Daily Mail. In November, the Los Angeles Police Department released surveillance video footage of two masked men breaking into the residence. The footage, which was captured on October 27, 2021, revealed two people wearing masks and hoodies checking out the property before one of the individuals shattered a sliding glass door panel. The video also revealed a man leaving with items wrapped in bedding.
Shortly after the incident, TikTok user, “entylawyer,” sparked chatter when he walked his followers through the surveillance video, highlighting details that appeared to poke holes in the break-in narrative.
The user pointed out that Dorit and PK are “over a million and a half dollars in debt just to the government.”
The TikToker also pointed out — “Let’s not forget that this house is for sale. The house that Dorit “bought.” The house that does not have PK on it.”
The video revealed two men having a conversation, before one shattered the glass door. The user noted that neither person went through the smashed entry.
“Does he go in that door? No, he just says ‘hey I’m going to walk around to the other side,’” the narrator said.
The person pointed out that the thieves did not appear to be in any rush, as one individual was filmed walking down the street and setting down his haul “right in full view of all the neighbors.” He noted that surrounding neighbors were seemingly awake at the time, as home lights were visible in the background.
He ended his analysis with footage featured on RHOBH — the moment when one of the men generously left Dorit’s blinking cell phone at the gate, obviously calling more attention to the crime scene.
TikTok fans sounded off in the post’s comment section, weighing in on the surveillance footage rehash.
One person said — “Literally my first thought when I heard the news was “It’s a set up”. PK was conveniently out of the country, they owe all this money hmmmm.”
Another added — “it’s an insurance scam.”
A third quipped — “Dorit and PK are as phony as a three dollar bill $.”
One user said — “Not that I’m an expert but that’s not robbery behavior. Speed is key, that much I know. This stinks.”
Another person chimed in — “I believe DORIT is lying! This so called home invasion I’d BS. SHE NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED.”
Dorit confirmed during a May 2022 appearance on Watch What Happens Live that no suspects were ever arrested for the crime.
“No, not yet. I don’t believe so,” the Bravo star said when host, Andy Cohen, asked if the culprits had been caught.
