Brandi Glanville has fired her assistant for losing her dog and insists she doesn't trust her to look after her children.
Brandi Glanville has fired her assistant for losing her dog.
The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star is blaming her 23-year-old former associate after her beloved Chihuahua, Chica, was snatched from her home in Los Angeles during an alleged break-in last week, while she was in Palm Springs, California.
The assistant - who has asked not to be named - told TMZ.com: ''I no longer work for Brandi. She texted me [last Saturday] saying that I didn't do my job by losing the dog.''
The personal helper claims the 40-year-old star still owes her for two weeks work, totalling up to more than $1,000.
However, Brandi seems unsympathetic towards her former worker, saying: ''I did what I had to do. If I can't trust her with my dogs, how can I trust her with my kids?''
The blonde beauty - who has sons Mason, nine, and Jake, five, with her former husband Eddie Cibrian - has offered a generous $10,000 reward if her brown pooch is found, but in the meantime has welcomed a new dog named Chico into her home whilst the search for Chica continues.
She wrote on Twitter on Sunday: ''We have a new family member until Chica comes back to us. His name is Chico. (sic)''
