Newest addition to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast, Dorit Kemsley burst on to the scene with over the top glitz and glamour – Buddha parties, rose gold Bentleys, Boy George – oh my! Although she seems to be headed for drama with Erika Girardi very soon, Dorit’s appearance on the show thus far has been smooth sailing.

In this week’s blog, Dorit counts her many blessings, which include pampering from hubby PK by way of her extravagant fortieth birthday party, and the cherished visit from her parents. “At first I was dreading my birthday, but with PK by my side, I knew things would be OK. Inviting my parents out for the special occasion was really important to me. I absolutely adore my parents and had to have them here to celebrate with us…I truly treasure the time we get to spend together and seeing them with their grandchildren.”


Calling her gifted Bentley “totally unexpected” <side eye>, Dorit gushes that “PK truly went above and beyond…I feel so blessed to receive this from my darling husband. The funny thing is, it was so special that I was quite scared to drive it!”

Despite her fears that PK’s party planning would fall somewhat flat, Dorit admits “It was driving me crazy not knowing what he had planned! However, I was soon reassured things would be good when I saw the mini Hummer golf carts PK had booked to bring our friends and guests to the house. Such a fun and lovely idea. I was really starting to get excited now about the night ahead.”

At the sight of PK’s surprise Buddha lounge, Dorit reflects, “I couldn’t believe my eyes! I knew he was planning something special outside but never in my wildest imagination did I think it would be this stunning. I mean, really, a club over the pool, ice sculptures, the decorations, and lighting. It really was a fun and happening little club right in our back garden. I was amazed!”

But the bubble of euphoria Dorit floated on that evening was a bit deflated by tension among the ladies, notably between Lisa Vanderpump and the twin thirsty girls Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson. “I know tensions were also a little high with LVP and Eileen. I was there when LVP made the comment to Eileen about her husband, and it was a bit of a racy thing to say, but I get it. It’s that British humor that I hear from my husband and our friends all the time. It’s not for everyone, but it’s not meant with harm. I’ve learnt to jump back in with a quick comment or response that plays into theirs, and we all laugh it off. It’s a cultural thing that doesn’t always translate well over here. I hope Eileen enjoyed the evening regardless.”

Oh – and Dorit didn’t miss the opportunity in her blog to shade Erika, Kyle Richards, and Eileen about their ensemble choices for the evening either! “I was a bit surprised when Erika showed up in a very casual dress, given the invite said to dress in formal attire, but maybe she didn’t see that. After my initial surprise on the night, I later thought who cares and each to their own.”

Dorit backhandedly compliments that “I thought [Eileen] and Kyle looked stunning in their red dresses. Red can be tricky to wear but they both pulled it off fabulously!”

Back to the sunshine and rainbows of her existence, Dorit closes with more words of undying love to the man who makes the magic happen for her and random houseguests/clientsPK. “The night was surely full of surprises, and I just loved every minute and to share it with our close friends and family. And just when I didn’t think things couldn’t get any better, PK spoke so deeply into my heart with the most beautiful birthday speech, and I teared up. I truly feel like the luckiest woman alive, to be with the man of my dreams and have our two beautiful children. I couldn’t be more grateful for this life we are blessed to share. My birthday was truly a dream come true.”
