Dorit Kemsley: I Really Do like Erika, but I Stand by My Remark
Dorit thinks her comment about American humor was misunderstood.
It’s always a treat to spend time with my girlfriends, especially Lisa V. I was excited to help her find a special birthday gift for Ken, something that didn't have four legs! Ha!
She might have a sharp British sense of humor, but not everyone sees what a caring wife she is that absolutely adores her husband. It was so special to help her find a gift for her Ken, and I'm not kidding around when I say we are two peas in a pod! You don’t come across a lot of people in life who you can count on and connect with. It’s great to be so playful with Lisa, I just love her and I can’t stop laughing most of the time. The silliness about the rubber and the watch is a prime example of how we joke and play around. We're like two silly little girls when we're together!
The moments with my children are both heartwarming and sad at times to watch. Jagger and Phoenix are so precious, and it's so reminiscent of the times that were such a struggle as a mom and the difficulties I faced in this moment. Becoming a mother changed everything for me. It's the single most important role to me, and as a mom I'm prepared to do whatever is best for my kids. When Phoenix started favoring one side of her head and we heard the concerns of the doctors, PK and I decided to take immediate action and get her the headband. It was so difficult to see her in it every day, but we knew it was what was best for her. I just can’t wait for her to be out of it and this whole issue to be over. For my son Jagger, it was also alarming that he wasn’t engaging and speaking with us more, and the doctors recommended speech therapy. It’s a slow process but we are committed to it, and I believe Jagger is going to really benefit from it. He even enjoys going. It’s so hard to be a mother at times like these. It truly pulls on my heartstrings and gives me sleepless nights, but I’m trying my best and willing to do anything to benefit them. I’m so thankful to also have the support that I have in the house. With no family close by and both myself and PK running the business, it’s a godsend to have found the people we have to help us. They truly are an extension of our family, and the babies love them.
The parts with Eileen were really touching. I found myself crying watching her speak about it. I sympathize with what she’s been going through. I can’t imagine the heartache. I really feel for her and what she’s been going through. Everyone dreads the day that this will happen to them, and she’s handled it with such poise and grace.
PK and I were both excited to attend the White Party. I was looking forward to catching up with everyone since my birthday but also I wasn’t too sure about wearing white! White can be a tricky color and it has its challenges—especially in the underwear area—like we all talked about! I thought Erika’s outfit looked great, but it was a surprise to everyone when she said she was without panties. We’ve all been there without underwear. It’s not that big of a deal, and PK and I have a good sense of humor about these things as you can see when we are joking about it the next day.
I really do like Erika, but I stand by my remark that she is often guarded. I personally haven't felt much warmth from her, and she has a tendency to snap at both PK and I for no reason. I think my comment about “Americans” was misunderstood. Of course I’m American and very proud of it. I’m simply stating AS AN AMERICAN, I do think we all need to relax a little and lighten up. The joking around is often a bit of harmless fun and personally I enjoy it. It keeps me young and playful! But everyone's entitled to their own opinions, and each of us speak our minds openly, whether we agree with each other or not, and that’s just part of being a strong-minded Beverly Hills Housewife.
Until next week stay fabulous,
