While appearing on comedian Heather McDonald‘s podcast on Monday, Dorit opened up about her portrayal on the Bravo reality series before confirming she was pressured to talk about her finances by Bravo and reacting to rumors suggesting her accent is fading.
According to Dorit, she’s unhappy with the way producers have made it look as if she’s an absentee mom who relies heavily on a team of nannies to care for her son, Jagger, and her daughter, Phoenix.
“I went back to producers so hurt and upset and I said, ‘You have so much footage. Balance it. How could you do this?’” she recalled on Juicy Scoop. “But at the end of the day they have a job to do and they’re going to do it however they see fit. But that’s what’s hurt me the most.”
“I do have help, but my kids, they come first, and I have such a beautiful relationship with them [and] it is a pity not to show that,” she continued.
Dorit was particularly hurt by the way in which her RHOBH producers chose to leave out a filmed moment of happiness and excitement she experienced with her husband, Paul “PK” Kemsley, and their kids as they arrived at their new home (you can see photos here) for the very first time. Then, after seeing that they instead focused on her and PK’s financial drama, she was further peeved.
While Dorit revealed she and PK made the decision to open up about the financial hardships they faced in recent years as a couple, she added that they did so after getting pressured by Bravo.
“I had a lot of pressure from the network, truthfully, because there’s all of these headlines,” she admitted.
“It’s always tricky because you’re doing a show and they want to make things more salacious,” she said. “We talked a lot more about the details, and none of those things made the edit but we did, we talked about it.”
As for her accent, Dorit said she’s always had a knack for languages and can actually speak five different languages. She also noted that her parents don’t have American accents before admitting that she doesn’t understand why anyone thinks her accent is fake.
”The idea that I’m faking an accent or putting on an accent… I don’t really pay attention,” she said. “I couldn’t tell you if it’s there, if it’s fading. I don’t hear it. I don’t try to speak a certain way.”
Dorit then confessed that her accent has likely been influenced by the people she’s surrounded by.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
