Beverly Hills is a small town. And lo and behold, Dorit Kemsley's husband Paul "PK" Kemsley shares a tie to one of its late residents that he never knew about until now. As it turns out, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills husband and Burt Reynolds not only had the same favorite restaurant, but they habitually sat at the same table, too!
On September 6 — the day the Boogie Nights actor died — PK stopped by his favorite eatery to find a touching homage to the 1970s icon. A particular banquette at the Beverly Hills Hotel's iconic Polo Lounge had been reserved to honor Reynolds' memory that evening. On the table was a photo of the actor, a martini, and what appeared to be its famous McCarthy salad, a take on the cobb.
Touched by the tribute, PK posted a snap of the setup to Instagram.
In his caption, PK explained: "This is so sad, walked in to our favourite regular restaurant, the polo Lounge @bevhillshotel and our regular table isn’t available, turns out it was also Burt Reynolds Table and it’s been laid as he always ate with his dish and drink.... we eat here 4 times a week at this table and I never knew.... may he RIP gonna have a martini in honour of him."
