To be fair, it was Nigiri which should be eaten by hand or with chopsticks. Her restaurant probably doesn't have chopsticks and eating with her hands may make her uncomfortable, oh well.
Ken comes on strong, for sure, but I think my husband would have my back in this sort of situation, too. I think a true friend gives another friend the benefit of the doubt in the absence of any legitimate proof. Just "thinking" that it must have been Lisa who gave the story, or someone in her camp, isn't proof. I'm not saying they need the sort of proof that holds up in court, but something more than a group consensus is necessary, in my opinion, to accuse a friend of something like this. If Kyle and Dorit are truly the friends they claim to be, they could have asked her if she leaked the story, or knew anything about it, and when she said "no" then that needed to be the end of it.
Again- why is everyone letting Dorit, the domino that started this whole chain of events, off the hook? I don't blame anyone for realizing that pet ownership isn't for them, or wanting to remove an animal they feel is a threat to their children, but she knew the best option was to return Lucy to VDP Dogs and she chose not to do so, this is all on her.
