Two sides to the same story? After Dorit KemsleyShe claimed she never heard from her former. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa VanderpumpThe England native defended her character after her home was broken into.

“Setting record straight… Of course I reached out to PK,” Vanderpump, 61, tweetedSaturday, May 14th, refers to the current RHOBH’s star’s husband, Paul “PK” Kemsley. “And yes … after [the] accident not a word … from any of them … but that’s OK, I had pillars of support.”

The Vanderpump Rules personality — who was an OG Housewife on RHOBH until her 2019 exit — came armed with receipts, sharing an alleged text message exchange with the 54-year-old businessman.

“I’m so sorry to hear what transpired,” Vanderpump allegedly texted PK. “Glad that you’re all safe.”

The reality TV star at 45 years old made headlines on Wednesday, May 11. Andy Cohen Live on Camera: Watch What Happens when she alleged that she had not heard “a word” from the SUR restauranteur in the wake of the incident.

Us Weekly confirmed in October 2021 that three men broke into Dorit’s Encino, California, home while she and her two children — son Jagger, 8, and daughter Phoenix, 6 — were sleeping. PK was not in London at the time.

“I was in bed and all the lights were off. The kids and I had just flown in from London and we were all jet-lagged,” the Connecticut native recalled to Andy CohenWednesday “When I heard [my door] unlock, it’s a sound I hear every night, Andy. So, I just thought, ‘OK, it’s [my kids coming into my room].’ [The intruders] didn’t expect me to be home. I had to tell them, ‘Take it all. I don’t care about any of [my material possessions]. Just don’t hurt my babies.”

According to a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department at the time, the suspects took an assortment of Dorit’s handbags, jewelry and watches with “significant monetary loss” before fleeing the scene in a black truck. The incident was later covered on Bravo’s season 12 premiere. Her young children were not aware of what happened.

“Had there been any other outcome, you know, where my children had woken up and seen [what happened] — God forbid — it would’ve probably been different and I wouldn’t have gone back into filming,” the fashion designer exclusively told Us in January. “They didn’t know anything. So, I decided, you know, this is what I need to do and it’s gonna help me. Instead of staying home and wallowing in this. I want to keep life as normal and easy as possible. I wanted to, you know, continue my commitment to the show.”

Dorit has not addressed this issue. Overserved alum’s Saturday claims, the twosome have a storied history ahead of Vanderpump’s RHOBH exit. The Dancing With the Stars An alum was accused by leaking a story to media in 2018 about Dorit’s rescue from Vanderpump Dogs.

“I left [the show] because I was very, very, very unhappy and I didn’t appreciate being called a liar,” Vanderpump exclusively told Us March 2021. “To accuse me of selling a story, when you never get stories come out of my restaurants, you know, so it was such an insult to me. It was about me, it was about Vanderpump Dog Foundation. This was something I created out of total compassion and my passion project. I just thought, ‘I’m done with it.’”
