In case you were wondering after watching Dorit Kemsley and Paul "PK" Kemsley's marriage for the last few seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we finally got the scoop on what the early days of their romance was like. When The Daily Dish spoke to Dorit via phone earlier this season, she spilled the tea on how she met PK — and it was love at first sight.

"Well, we met and we didn’t really have our first official date for a couple of months," she recalled. "We had had a few things in common, so we went out as a group. And in that time it was a very clear — it was a lot of banter between him and I. And it was a very clear chemistry. But, I wouldn’t say that there was 'oh my god,' from either side, really an inclination. He had separated from his wife and he had children. So, he had a whole life before. And so there really wasn’t this thought at that moment. I was a girl about town with my own business in New York City."

Still, there was something there worth pursuing -- which brings us to their first official date.

"But it was very clear, very apparent. And then when we went on our first, when we went on our first date in New York City, he took me to see Jersey Boys, which he had seen six times by then. It was his favorite show. And I think when he saw that I was just like dancing around and enjoying it so much, I think for him he thought, OK, this is definitely my kind of girl. And for me, I mean he’s just the more lovable fool, he cracks me up."

Well, there you go. It all worked out, as they later married in a beautiful ceremony.

And now, a decade later, they have two kids and a whole adorable life together. "Ten years we’ve been together and he still makes me laugh like nobody else, every single day of my life. And I married my true soulmate. I’m so blessed and grateful and I knew that. I knew it, I would say, within a good couple of months. My brother once said to me when I was in my 20s, he said, 'You’ll know when you know, Dorit. When it’s the right one, you’ll just know.' And it’s true. And that was true for me and look at the two munchkins that we made," she said.
