Andy Cohen and Dorit Kemsley Celebrated Hanukkah Together In the Sweetest Way

The Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen host and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member kicked off Hanukkah a little early this year.

Dorit Kemsley appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on December 6. Though her appearance fell the night before Hanukkah 2023 officially kicks off, Andy decided that the time was right to celebrate the festival of lights. 

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

With Dorit seated beside him in the Clubhouse, the talk-show host said: "Tomorrow at sundown represents the first night of Hanukkah, the festival of lights. But with Dorit here, I couldn't resist celebrating a night early. And this really feels like the year to do it to bring peace, light, and love to the world, all of which represents the meaning of Hanukkah by the way." 

Andy asked Dorit if she would light the candles in his on-set menorah with him and say the Hanukkah prayer, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom didn't hold back her enthusiasm. "I love that!" she said. "I'm so happy... I love this, Andy!" After the pair lit the candles and said the prayer, Andy and Dorit embraced. 

The sweet moment marked the start of Andy and Dorit's Hanukkah celebrations. Let's take a look at how they've celebrated in the past. 

How Dorit Kemsley Celebrates Hanukkah With Her Family 

In her late 2022 Instagram Story photos, Dorit shared a look at “some of [her] favorite Hanukkah moments this year.” 

In one photo, her little ones, Phoenix and Jagger, stood in the kitchen with their cousins eating a sweet treat. “Munchkins enjoying my traditional Sufganiyot (donuts),” she captioned the pic, which showed the little ones wearing matching Hanukkah-inspired pajamas. 

The jelly-filled doughnuts were just one of many delicious homemade dishes Dorit prepared for the Hanukkah celebration. As she showed in her Stories, the holiday spread also included latkes, rice, pita bread, falafel, salads, broccoli, zucchini, and more. 

As she tends to do every year, Dorit decorated her home beautifully for the 2022 holiday season. In her Instagram posts, she shared a look at her stunning Christmas tree, noting that the kids were “trying to guess what presents they were getting.”

In an interview with Today, he shared, "We'll bake cookies, we light a lot of fires... I'm happy to say I have a wood-burning fireplace in New York City, and we light a lot of fires, and listen to Mariah Carey, light the menorah."
