Ring, ring… Hi Karma, how are you? You need to speak with whom? Oh sure, hang on. Dorit Kemsley, phone call! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been a whirlwind of one-sided drama this season. The main focus has been, sigh, Lisa Vanderpump’s battle with her co-stars over a dog adoption gone wrong. Viewers of the show have wondered why all the fuss on an issue that could have been solved by following simple adoption contract guidelines. One reason could be the lawsuits facing Mauricio Umansky, husband of Kyle Richards. Then we have an active suit against Erika Jayne’s husband, Tom Girardi. And we certainly cannot forget Dorit’s husband PK Kemsley. None of these cases have been mentioned on the show thus far. Instead the ladies have banded together to focus on Lisa V. and create a mountain of deflection to spare them any embarrassment.
Avoiding a subject won’t make it go away. Just ask Dorit and PK Kemsley! The couple has seen their fair share of financial troubles. While occasionally bopping around with Boy George, Dorit
o and PeeKay have been dealing with court cases on the down low. But now we have a twist! Looks like ‘ole PK will have to bop himself into the courtroom, and bring his bank statements with him.
According to an article from The Blast, PK has been ordered to appear in court for an examination of his finances. Fun! The RHOBH hubby has yet to repay a $1.2 million debt. A Los Angeles judge wants to see him on June 19. The judge also wants to see his assets. This includes property, bank accounts, and sources of income (including checks from the show).
Nicos Kirzis loaned PK the money back in 2011. He is accused of non-payment and even tried to wipe the debt out via bankruptcy. Mr. Kirzis said he has received $250,000 from PK, but that only covers the accumulated interest. The remaining balance is $1,235,573.66. Yasssss, tack on that 66 cents!
Fortunately for PK, he did have a recent legal victory when a judge threw out a case from a separate court issue due to a technicality. A sports betting company had sued him for $75,000.
But PK isn’t the only one in trouble. Dorit’s Beverly Beach swimwear line is in question as well. As reported by Us Weekly, Dorit’s former partner, Ryan Horne, sued the couple after he ALLEGEDLY gave them $205,000. Ryan states he was never paid back and Dorit counter-sued saying he was only a vendor for the brand.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen did us a solid and questioned Dorit about the lady who chased her down during the Bahamas cast trip. The
hero woman repeatedly asked Dorit why she had not paid the money back to Ryan and the video went viral. Dorit told Andy she was “grateful that the other ladies didn’t bring it up” on the show. Yeah, they were too busy turning #puppygate into a thing…
Dorit explained, “Obviously it happened, it’s all over the Internet. It was embarrassing.” You know Lisa V. plays that clip on a loop. But why haven’t we seen any of this during the show? It is most certainly more interesting than dragging out the whole dog saga.
“Trust me [I want to talk about it],” Dorit said. “I’m very comfortable with our position, but unfortunately my hands are tied. You can’t discuss legal issues when they are going on and I respect that.” How conveeeeeeeenient.

Dorit went on to say that she hoped to have some resolution of the case by the June reunion taping. Oh I hope so too! Pop the popcorn and pour the wine, looks like the reunion might be worth watching!
TELL US- DO YOU THINK DORIT AND PK’S COURT CASES SHOULD BE DISCUSSED ON THE SHOW? DID THE LADIES FOCUS ON #PUPPYGATE TO AVOID THEIR OWN ISSUES? DO YOU THINK LISA VANDERPUMP WILL COME OUT ON TOP AT THE REUNION?
