For the last six seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, fans have questioned Dorit Kemsley’s eclectic accent. Because Dorit was born and raised in the U.S., many viewers find it hard to believe that the accent is genuine.
According to Dorit’s own explanation, the accent is influenced by her husband’s British twang, as well as the fact that her parents are from Israel. Even so, many viewers don’t buy this explanation, and think she’s faking it for the cameras.
Now, a former ‘Housewife’ has her own suspicions about the accent, and is publicly addressing it.
On The Rick & Kelly Show, Real Housewives of Orange County alum Kelly Dodd imitated the sounds of Dorit’s accent, and blatantly made fun of it.
Kelly’s husband Rick Leventhal asked the question, “Where are you from, Dorit?”
“She’s from Connecticut,” answered Kelly, laughing.
“She’s from Woodbridge, Connecticut,” Rick added. “She’s born and raised in Woodbridge.”
Kelly then imitated the voice again, answering as if she were Dorit. “Yeah, and this is how we talk collectively.”
