Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Earlier this year, Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsstar Brandi Glanville was the victim of a devious dog-napping when her beloved pup, Chica, went missing. The reality TV star suspects her little chihuahua mix was swiped after someone broke into her home — an event we see in the promo for next week's episode (December 16) of the Bravo show.
"I will give anyone who finds my dog Chica in Bel Air, L.A. — Encino area — 10 thousand dollars," Brandi tweeted. "Please please. She has a collar — call me!"
Brandi even hired an answering service to handle all dog-related calls, imploring people not to dial the number if they didn’t have any information about Chica. Weeding out the prank calls, good call, Brandi.
So has Brandi had any success in finding her missing dog? For now, Chica is still at large. But in the meantime, Brandi adopted a replacement dog named Chody to keep her two sons, Mason and Jake, occupied until Chica’s epic return.
Things could be serious, as Brandi tweeted on June 12 about the police stopping by to fingerprint her home following the break-in. Good idea, girl! Brandi also revealed she fired her assistant, who was the last person to see Chica before her disappearance — and we suspect this was the person who informed Brandi of the break-in. Either way, it's probably best to get rid of someone who is in charge of your kids if they can't take care of two pups.
Brandi took to Twitter again on June 16 to get the word out about her missing pooch, cracking wise about her other two dogs in the process.
“Chica is still missing & we R prayong [sic] 4 her safe return. Though Sugar & Buddy may be having a puppy wedding soon. #aggressivemakeoutsessions.”
We’re crossing our fingers for Chica’s safe return!
