After Show: Dorit’s Disappearing Accent

Since Dorit Kemsley was first introduced to the world on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, her accent has been a hot topic of sorts. In fact, it was once again on a Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen caller's mind when she stopped by the Clubhouse on Tuesday. The caller wanted to know why her accent sounded different when she was "doing that little sing-song thing in your house the other day" in a previous episode of RHOBH this season.

Well, Dorit was quick with her response for the fan: "Whatever comes out, comes out." Then she offered up a theory about her singing accent versus her speaking accent that you can check out for yourself in the video, above.

When The Daily Dish spoke to Dorit during her rookie season, she offered some deeper insight into why she speaks the way she does. "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 last February. "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."
