Dorit Kemsley Explains Why Boy George Lives with Her

There's a new boy mixing it up with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills crew — who just happens to be the one and only Boy George. And there's a really good reason why he's hanging with and performing for the ladies of the 90210: He's RHOBH rookie Dorit Kemsley's long-term houseguest. So, how did the pop icon end up living with the designer and her talent manager hubby, PK? Well, we went straight to the source to find out.

Boy George Performs for the Housewives

"There was like an instant love between Geroge, PK, and I. We met George a few years back when he had approached PK about managing him," Dorit recalled to The Daily Dish. "And when he came to L.A., PK had suggested, 'cause we had the room, he said, 'You're welcome to come to the house.'"

And the rest is history. Now George is a member of the Kemsley clan, according to Dorit.

"I think when you stay in someone's house and you live in their lives and you're playing with their children and you see them as a couple [it's different]. I mean he sees us before bed; he sees us first thing in the morning, and it's not like this lunch date per se," she said. "You kind of get more intimately connected, and that's definitely what happened."

Dorit explained that her connection to George goes way deeper than just roomies. "And George is like family for that very reason. He's my daughter's godfather. He's my pseudo husband," she said. "I'm definitely in a menage-marriage at times. He's someone I trust implicitly. When my husband's not there, it's him and I — and we'll dine together; we'll cook together. He's with the kids. All of his friends become our friends and vice versa. And he's also George in our house. He's not always Boy George."

Still, sometimes he is Boy George. "Yes, of course, you take one peak into his closet and its like whoa, Boy George regalia, through and through," she said. "But he is George: this down-to-earth, super-funny, warm, natural, big, beautiful heart, down-to-earth guy."
