Kyle Richards Shares Health Update After Being Hospitalized Following Bee Stings And Epi-Pen Failure!

Kyle Richards is recovering after she was hospitalized for walking into a beehive and getting stung by bees multiple times.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared the news on Sunday, July 25 via her Instagram Stories.

“So this happened yesterday,” Richards captioned a photo of herself lying in a hospital bed, holding up an oxygen mask, according to Us Weekly. “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 shared security camera footage of the incident via her Instagram Stories, which shows the mother-of-four fleeing across her lawn after being chased by the swarm, with her two dogs close behind. She stopped on the steps briefly to assess her injuries.

“I can laugh at this now, but what you can't see is that they were in my hair and were literally chasing me,” she wrote atop the video, noting she was home alone at the time. Richards also stated that people who work for her weren't able to hear her cries for help, reports PEOPLE.

“My landline wouldn't dial 911 and my epi pen was defective and wouldn't open,” she added.

In a second clip, Richards headed to her pool “to get the stinger out” of her hand before apparently discovering bees were still in her hair. She then tried to shake them out momentarily before opting to jump in the water, her dogs keeping watch throughout the ordeal.

According to PEOPLE, Richards also shared another image of herself with an oxygen mask on in the hospital where she thanked the EMTs and urged others with allergies to use their Epi-Pens as needed.

“I share this story with you because I sometimes don't bother to take my epi pen with me. I also don't know why I couldn't get mine to work,” she wrote above the shot, encouraging others to ensure they're aware of how to properly use the device.

“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 explained.

She made sure to thank the Los Angeles Fire Department and Encino Hospital Medical Center for helping nurse her back to health after the scare. “And for repeatedly convincing me there were no more bees in my hair,” Richards joked.

After the incident, Kyle shared a selfie along with a health update, “The red face is not going away. Apparently I may be like this for a while thanks to the bees.”
