New girl, Dorit Kemsley, hasn’t quite found her footing on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Nor has she stuck with an accent for longer than three minutes. But that’s okay, everyone has their quirks. Kyle Richards likes to bust into splits for no apparent reason, and Erika Girardi is as icy as a Pumptini on the rocks.
But as Dorit navigates her way through this new group of ladies, she must defend herself for her choices as mother, appreciating the British sense of humor, and judging Erika for flashing her cooch at Dorit’s husband, PK.
First up, the famous dry wit of the Brits comes into play as Dorit shopped with Lisa Vanderpump. They found a blinged out watch for Ken’s birthday and made lots of jokes about condoms.
“It’s always a treat to spend time with my girlfriends, especially Lisa V… She might have a sharp British sense of humor, but not everyone sees what a caring wife she is that absolutely adores her husband.”
And by “not everyone” I assume Dorit is talking about Eileen Davidson, Lisa Rinna, and Erika. They don’t appreciate much about LVP.
Next, Dorit goes on to explain her domestic situation in which she has multiple nannies. After taking some hits on social media for having so much help with the children, Dorit defends herself.
“Becoming a mother changed everything for me. It’s the single most important role to me, and as a mom I’m prepared to do whatever is best for my kids… I’m so thankful to also have the support that I have in the house. With no family close by and both myself and PK running the business, it’s a godsend to have found the people we have to help us.”
Dorit also talks about the struggles she’s had with her children. Little Jagger’s speech is delayed and Phoenix sleeps on one side of her head, hence the helmet.
“When Phoenix started favoring one side of her head and we heard the concerns of the doctors, PK and I decided to take immediate action and get her the headband… For my son Jagger, it was also alarming that he wasn’t engaging and speaking with us more, and the doctors recommended speech therapy.”
Finally, Dorit tackles Erika’s bare vadge.
“I thought Erika’s outfit looked great, but it was a surprise to everyone when she said she was without panties. We’ve all been there…”
Have we, though? Have we?
“It’s not that big of a deal, and PK and I have a good sense of humor about these things as you can see when we are joking about it the next day.”
I’m not sure she and PK were actually “joking” about it. Dorit’s trying to downplay her snark, and she really doesn’t need to. Surely when Erika announced she wasn’t wearing panties she expected some kind of reaction. Well, she got one, so good job!
“I really do like Erika, but I stand by my remark that she is often guarded. I personally haven’t felt much warmth from her, and she has a tendency to snap at both PK and I for no reason.”
Erika sneered at the British sense of humor. Dorit chimed in, and Erika screeched that Dorit is from Connecticut, even though she’s adopted a faux English accent.
“Of course I’m American and very proud of it. I’m simply stating AS AN AMERICAN, I do think we all need to relax a little and lighten up. The joking around is often a bit of harmless fun and personally I enjoy it.”
I’m not sure about this new Housewife, but I don’t think she did anything wrong in this epsisode. Dorit wasn’t attacking Erika for being guarded, she made a statement. Erika seemed to come in that night with a chip on her shoulder.
So, am I wrong? Was Dorit out of line? Was Erika right to snap back at PK?
