Kyle Richards, who is best known for starring on the reality television show “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills,” was rushed to the hospital over the weekend after she walked into a beehive at her home and was subsequently attacked by a swarm of bees.
“So this happened yesterday … I walked into a hive of bees and was stung multiple times. If you know me at all you know I am allergic to bees and terrified of them,” Richards revealed on her Instagram Story, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Richards then shared home security footage that shows her frantically trying to escape the bees, eventually jumping into her pool.
“I can laugh at this video now but what you can’t see is that they were in my hair and were literally chasing me,” she explained. “My family wasn’t home and for whatever reason the people that work for me couldn’t hear me screaming for help. My landline wouldn’t dial 911 and my epi pen was defective and wouldn’t open.”
“I share this story with you because I sometimes don’t bother to take my epi pen with me,” Richards continued. “I also don’t know why I couldn’t get mine to work. It’s important to look on your tube and watch the videos of how to use it. There are different types of epi pens and they each work differently. But also always call 911 even if you are able to use your epi pen as they have to use other medications to help breathing etc.”
Richards, who is a mother of four, then thanked her local fire station and medical center for “taking such good care of me.”
“Including helping me through my panic attack. And for repeatedly having to convince me there were no more bees in my hair,” she wrote alongside a laughing crying emoji.
“@lafdfirestation83 just came to check on me the day after,” Richards added longside a selfie of herself and some firefighters. “Still looking like a hot mess with my pool hair and sting marks #supportyourlocalfiredepartment.”
Thank goodness Richards was finally able to get the help that she needed after this terrifying ordeal! Find out more about what went down in the video below.
