For Dorit Kemsley and husband Paul "PK" Kemsley, mixing business and pleasure just makes sense. In fact, as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member recently told Bravo Insider, "PK and I, we've always been the couple that goes through life together. We share everything together. We enjoy things more if we're doing it together."
So, it's all about maintaining that balance as they expand the business side of their relationship (including an upcoming joint endeavor in real estate), all while making sure they also have time for romance, naturally. "I mean, pre-pandemic, we used to have date night weekly. We'd go to our favorite restaurant, and we'd have caviar and champagne. And then, you know, with COVID, those restaurants became less and less and less, but we always make time for one another," Dorit said. "When we're not together, he calls me 20 times a day and vice versa. And usually, our quality time is after I get the kids down to sleep, we get in bed, and we chat and we watch our shows. And so we really always make time for one another. He’s literally one of my most favorite people to be with."
Speaking of that new business venture, Dorit shed a little more light on what to expect from the couple as they embark on this whole new chapter by each other's side. "So, you know, this new real estate agency that we're opening up in London, you know, it’s PK’s return to property, but he's really excited at the prospect of me coming on this journey with him this time," she explained. "So, we're very excited about it, and he's always involved in everything I do. It's the way we are."
Of course, Dorit has plenty of her own entrepreneurial endeavors happening, as well — and while teasing what fans can expect next from her (including more from her in the fashion space), she shared the sweet little nickname her husband calls her. "But as far as new business ventures, I've always got some things in the works, always. It's just a matter of right now, figuring out what I want to devote the time to in pursuit [of]. But yeah, you can always expect DK, Dorit Kemsley, to come out with something new, something fun," she said. "It's actually a public rebrand, but that's what PK calls me. Yeah, DK and PK."
So, when the couple does find time to chill and hang out as a pair, as well as with their two adorable kids, Jagger and Phoenix, Dorit shared that fans might be surprised to learn that it usually involves her cooking up a tasty meal for her family.
"Funny enough, I think that people are still surprised at the thought that I cook, you know, that I’m a really good cook and I'm more domestic than they think. Yes, I'm a businesswoman and I'm on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and I'm a mom, but really my family is the most important thing. And I love spending time [with them]. And when we're home, it's super chill, it's casual. And when we're off duty and I have the time, I love cooking for the family or baking with my little girl Phoenix," she said.
She then shared some of the dishes she whips up that her husband enjoys eating. "I have so many. My mother's a wonderful cook. She still puts dinner on the table from my father every night. And I cook with a lot of spices, and I like to do creative things. I mean, Moroccan dishes, Italian dishes, Asian dishes. I love to experiment; a lot of times I'll go in the refrigerator, see what we have, and then whip something up," she said. "But PK likes a couple of dishes, which he'll always get me to do like spaghetti Bolognese, or this Moroccan dish that I do, which is like little beef with chickpeas, paprika, cumin. A variety of things I do."
Sounds pretty tasty. We wouldn't mind an invite next time, DK.
