In a bid to support her friend, Kyle Richards held drinks at her house the day after Dorit’s robbery and all the ladies rallied round her.

Dorit explained that when her husband goes out of town, their children always sleep in bed with her but that night she put her daughter in her own bed. She added she felt exhausted, jet-lagged and glad to be in bed.

The mom-of-two said on RHOBH she was drifting off to sleep when she heard a door open.

Dorit recalled coming face to face with the robbers and added they were armed. She said: “When he saw me, he panicked… he charged at me, grabbed me, put me down and put a gun to me.

She said she thought she had to do anything to save her kids and begged the robbers to take what they wanted but not to hurt her children.

What was taken in the robbery?

The LA Times reported items worth $1 million were stolen in the robbery. Dorit said: “They took high-value bags and jewellery, whatever they could fit into the comforter.

The RHOBH star added some of the things taken were “irreplaceable” but it didn’t matter about the material things, she was just glad her children were safe.

She added: “I will always thank God for protecting me and the kids.
