Watch Dorit Kemsley Speak in Her Native Connecticut Accent
Is there a foreign accent The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills designer can't do?
Dorit Kemsley's accent has had many a Real Housewife and Real Housewives fan talking since she joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in Season 7. And now we have proof that she can speak in many different accents, indeed.
The RHOBH swimwear designer tried her hand at various accents while reciting past and present Real Housewives taglines on the new series Chatter, which you can view over on PeopleTV. Dorit delivered an Erika Girardi line in a cockney accent, recited a Kim Richards tagline as if she were from Boston, and she did a pretty impressive Russian accent while doing a Kenya Moore quote. Dorit even gave her best Donald Trump and Christopher Walken impressions while saying a Lisa Rinna and Luann de Lesseps tagline, respectively.
But when it came to doing a Ramona Singer tagline in an accent from Dorit's home state of Connecticut, it came out a little bit more Valley Girl. "I don't even know what a Connecticut accent is," Dorit said.
Dorit previously explained the origins of her accent when The Daily Dish caught up with her during her rookie season of RHOBH. "I think the way I speak is probably a combination of many things. First and foremost, I am married to a Brit who's got a very, very strong London accent, and I'm sure some of his inflections have sort of rolled over on me," she said in February 2017. "My parents are not American. I was born and raised in America. I did spend a significant amount of time, nearly 10 years, back-and-forth, going to Europe. I spent a lot of time working all over the world and in various places of the world where people didn't speak English all that well. I had a tendency to overenunciate, so I think at times some of my English is part that and part inflection. And you know, being around a lot of Europeans and a lot of Brits, you just become a product of your environment, really. That's who I am. That's the way I speak. I don't hear it. My husband doesn't hear it, but it's definitely become a topic of conversation."
Dorit offered up a further explanation of why it seems like she sometimes has an accent and sometimes doesn't, like when she sang "Fever" at husband Paul "PK" Kemsley's birthday party earlier this season of RHOBH, on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen earlier this year, which you can check out, below.
