There hasn’t been a shortage of drama during Dorit Kemsley’s first season as a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, and the newbie is quickly learning how to handle the ins and outs of the 90120 squad.
In a new interview with The Daily Dish, Dorit opens up about connecting with her co-stars and how she deals with living in front of the camera. Plus Dorit dishes on the latest RHOBH drama which surrounds Lisa Rinna’s Xanax smoothies!
“I think much like going through life in the world and in relationships, you’re going to have those you connect with immediately and those [that are] more challenging,” Dorit explains. “Coming in as a new person to a group of women is always going to be a little bit difficult, and you can always assume you’re not going to be best friends with everybody. I connected with Kyle [Richards] very quickly and then our friendship just sort of grew. And she’s a barrel of laughs; we have so much fun together. Lisa Vanderpump and I were friends before I did the show, so that was great to be with her. And then the other women, we had some really great moments and some challenging moments. We sort of duck and dive through those through the season.”
As living in front of the cameras, Dorit admits she’s still getting used to it. “I would say I’m probably adjusting day-by-day. It’s a process, but it’s been an unusual process, and my husband and I were both prepared for it. We kind of said certain things are going to come with the territory, and we will brace ourselves and come together close and tight like a family.”
Finally, Dorit moves on to the super juicy stuff. Dorit admits one of the most unexpected moments on RHOBH happened when Rinna, Eden Sassoon and she discussed Xanax smoothies which quickly caused a firestorm on Twitter.
“First off, I have to tell you it was one of the funniest nights I had ever had,” Dorit said. “It was 8 o’clock at night making smoothies. It’s not something that’s very typical in my life or my home. And then the conversation, it just passed on, and Rinna had said, oh she’d pop a Xanax in there. And then when Eden had said, ‘Oh I do that,’ I mean, it was a bit shocking and then it was all in great fun and for laughs. Rinna pulled out her bag of pills, and we all had a laugh about it. I think it was all in good fun… I think that in this day and age people will take something to calm themselves down or they say something like that in jest, and it shouldn’t be taken so seriously.”
I think Dorit is growing on me. I really seem to like her more and more. There are still some things about her that irk me, though. The jury is still out for me.
