Dorit Kemsley The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - RHOBH

Did Dorit Kemsley Just Finally Admit She Has An Accent?!

Dorit Kemsley’s accent has been a topic of conversation from her very first RHOBH scene, but the Connecticut-born American has denied hearing it time and time again. Whether she was nicely asked, or rudely called out, Dorit has stuck to her story; she’s lived in Europe “for many years,” and that’s where it comes from!

Finally she opened up to The Daily Dish, and got candid on where exactly her accent comes from; shocker, she still denies hearing it! “I think the way I speak is probably a combination of many things,” she insisted. Elaborating, “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.

Continuing, “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 over enunciate, 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,” Dorit explained.

While she’s a blonde bombshell, Dorit’s proving that she’s got beauty and brains; she’s very worldly and speaks many different languages! . “My Spanish gets very confused with the Italian because they’re so similar and I speak better Italian than I do Spanish. But I spoke Spanish before Italian. So there’s the Hebrew. My father’s Israeli but I wasn’t raised speaking Hebrew, and I wanted to learn when I was a teenager so I would insist that my father would only speak to me in Hebrew,” she revealed.

She’s not done learning however, and Dorit is looking forward to adding a few more languages to her resume. “I would love to learn Chinese, which is very difficult. French, I think, is my next one because I love it. I can understand it, but I can’t really speak it. Oh and then there’s just so many others I’d love to learn,” she wrapped.

I can understand how Dorit doesn’t hear her accent, because many Americans who have a tiny accent from their home states don’t hear it! I’m a Jersey girl, but I still couldn’t tell you what a “Jersey accent” sounds like; hopefully that means I don’t have one!

I do think hers sounds a bit pretentious though, and since PK has one, she wants to have one too!

Thoughts on Dorit’s accent? Do you believe she doesn’t hear it? Do you think she’s copying PK? IS she pretentious? Do you like Dorit?
