The reality TV housewife and fashion designer Dorit Kemsley is the latest Hollywood celebrity to speak out about her horrifying experience when her Beverly Hills mansion was broken into.
The stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were targeted in the break-in, along with a number of people from the same apartment complex.
Police had earlier released security video footage of the men and a blonde woman believed to be involved.
“At the end of the day we are not really scared, it is really frightening that this happened to us but we are safe,” Kemsley, 40, said, adding that the police showed “great speed and force” in apprehending the suspects.

The New Jersey-born reality TV star explained that she is putting her husband, former Beverly Hills star PK, and their three children first.
“My husband and our children came first this weekend and everything else is going to fall into place. We will hopefully have the pain and sickness and the trauma of it to heal, learn from and hopefully even grow from,” she said.
Kemsley added that she would not have opened her doors to the intruders had she been asked in advance.
“We would have opened the door, but just as soon as we found out we had been robbed and had a gas fire we would have closed that door and locked it,” she said.
Kemsley said that her children’s education had been placed first after she “changed the locks off all our doors”.

I have been called many things: working class, wealthy, just plain crazy. My heart always says, ‘Oh, I don’t know. What the hell is wrong with you?’ My true friends know that, but I love them, we don’t judge. Now we have a new tag: terrified of something. #realhousewives https://t.co/QAn6kyCx6W — Dorit Kemsley (@doritkemsley) June 4, 2018
Other celebrities who have been targeted in home burglaries include singer Ariana Grande, rapper Post Malone and actor Armie Hammer.
