The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Dorit Kemsley is putting her money where her mouth is. In honor of Giving Tuesday, she joined fellow Homeless Not Toothless board member Sharon Stone to raise $25,000 to help “veterans, foster children, and women of domestic abuse get the dental care they need.”
Noting in a November 29 Instagram caption that she is “proud to serve as a Homeless Not Toothless board member” alongside Stone and William H. Macy, the RHOBH ’Wife also explained that the charity’s mission is “to empower those impacted by low-income situations, by providing them with quality and free dental care so that they can gain meaningful work, and eat without pain or embarrassment.”
There were plenty of cringey moments when Dorit hosted a Homeless Not Toothless charity gala during RHOBH Season 12, though. Aside from several of her castmates struggling with — and not so subtly mocking — the organization’s name, an “intense” argument (or several) also broke out within earshot of Grammy winner Melissa Etheridge, who was the event’s surprise performer.
“The energy was so intense in the room seconds before Melissa came out onstage, and the second she sang her first words, the energy completely changed,” Dorit reflected during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills After Show in August.
There were plenty of lighthearted moments too. On August 19, RHOBH’s Crystal Kung Minkoff shared a never-before-seen clip in which she and Kyle Richards discuss Dorit’s involvement with the nonprofit. After Kyle confessed that the organization’s name threw her off, Crystal suggested some alternatives, including Denture Ventures, Flossophy, and Bridge to Success. “My dad was an oral surgeon. He would have liked my ideas!!!” she captioned her Instagram post.
Name debate aside, Dorit is still proud to keep Homeless Not Toothless’ charitable work going, especially during the Season of Giving.
