Dana Wilkey is not a popular face on “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills,” but people who have been with the show for years will remember her appearance as a ‘friend of’ in season two of the Bravo series. She also made another brief appearance in “The Housewife and the Hustler,” a documentary about Erika and Tom’s case. She was mostly known because she kept showing off her $25,000 sunglasses.
As a result of a recent Instagram post, Wilkey has been on the receiving end of some accusations from RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp, who accused Wilkey of putting Dorit Kemsley and her family in danger because of some sensitive information in said post.
Kemsley was a victim of a recent robbery where she and her children were allegedly held at gunpoint.
On Thursday, Wilkey went on Instagram to respond by saying that the post was public information and it couldn’t have triggered anything even resembling a robbery.
Dana Wilkey Claimed She Removed The Post From Instagram
Mellencamp’s comment on Wilkey’s post said, “I hope you sleep really well tonight. You put her and her kids in danger by posting this. Disgusting.”
Wilkey responded by defending the controversial post and even shaded Mellencamp. The post in question included a document of the LLC of the Kemsley, which was named after her residential street but did not show Kemsley’s exact home address. Wilkey’s reason for posting this document isn’t clear, and her caption, which read “Guess why I’m posting this?” didn’t shed any light on it.
Mellencamp wasn’t the only person to feel that way about the post because a fan also accused Wilkey of causing the robbery. Wilkey replied via Instagram and said, “That’s just not true Pk [Kemsley] RE-posted my post again for hours after in his CT of the week and then deleted it.”
“The document posted was from the Secretary of State website. The house was also listed for sale, and you could Google her name and find it. Instagram re-posted it after reviewing it, and when Teddi dm’d me asking me to delete, I did do right away. I’ll leave it there.”

As part of Wilkey’s reply to Mellencamp’s accusation, she clarified that the document she posted displayed an office address and not a home address. She mentioned that the post was accessible to the public and even made some cutting remarks at Mellencamp.
“The post I made had an office address NO HOME ADDRESS and was public record. Her house is for sale on the public market, and I have received the listing several times by people with addresses and pictures,” she posted in an Instagram story. “PK re-posted my post calling out that it was public record a few hours before this incident in his CT of the week.”
She added that “Maybe [Teddi Mellencamp] could comment on what Dorit could do better to improve her security system. I’ve heard she knows a lot about that!”
How Kemsley’s Husband Responded To The Controversial Post
Mellencamp wasn’t the only one at odds with Wilkey’s post. Kemsley’s husband PK tore Wilkey a new one, calling her a “c***,” then he said she was just thirsty. He also added, “This is a statutory document that’s required by law and simply provides basic information about an LLC ….”
He also wrote, “Because you have attempted to hurt my family’s reputation in a sad attempt to garner more attention, I’m delighted to award you C..T of the week.”
Wilkey has certainly been under fire from multiple sides, but she showed that it didn’t bother her much by alleging that the robbery might result from the showy lives that the cast of RHOBH live. In the same Instagram story, she said, “It appears #rhobh have been burglarized several times likely because of showing their lifestyle.”
Dorit Kemsley Traumatized By Robbery
On Thursday, Page Six confirmed that the 45-year-old RHOBH star Kemsley’s home was invaded on Wednesday at 10:50 p.m. ET. Her husband PK was in London while she was home alone with her children Jagger and Phoenix, 7 and 5.
The LAPD did not confirm if she was held at gunpoint, but apparently, the three robbers took off with an undisclosed amount of property.

The Insider told Daily Mail that the incident traumatized Kemsley, and while it was happening, her sole focus was to make sure that her children were okay.
Mellencamp and RHOBH co-stars Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, and Kyle Richards visited Kemsley on Thursday to sympathize with her after the incident. Wilkey also shared her condolences via Instagram story.
