Dorit Kemsley claims Lisa Vanderpump Ignored Her at a Party

You should not drink the tea. Dorit KemsleyAs claimed Lisa Vanderpump ignored her at a mutual friend’s party, furthering her narrative that the restaurateur didn’t reach out to her after she was robbed at gunpoint in her home in October 2021.

“Listen, I’ve heard a lot of things. I heard that she reached out to me, thought she was blocked, so you never really know what to believe,” Dorit, 45, told Andy CohenDuring a Wednesday, June 22 appearance Live: Watch What Happens.

“I know this: If we had received the message, we would have responded. I don’t want to drag this LVP thing on, but three months, four months after the incident, we saw her. We were at a mutual friend’s 70th birthday party,” the fashion designer continued. After claiming that Vanderpump, 61, “never came up” to her or her husband, Paul “PK” Kemsley, at the gathering, Dorit added, “If you had sent a text message and you really cared, approach one of us and say, ‘How you doing? I sent you a text, I didn’t hear back.’ Nothing.”

The Connecticut native claimed that the Simply DivineAuthor had not spoken about the incident during a May appearance. WWHLVanderpump responded via Twitter. “Fact … I reached out … they didn’t reply,” she wrote. In a tweet she added a screenshot of a text that she allegedly sent to PK on October 2021. “I’m so sorry to hear what transpired glad that you’re all safe,” the text message read.

However, Dorit still isn’t convinced. “I just find it a little hard to believe that she did indeed reach out when she said she did,” she told Cohen, 54, adding that Vanderpump tweeted “a very vicious comment” about how she “didn’t recognize” her at the mutual friend’s party.

Despite being close friends at one time, their relationship ended in season 9. Real Housewives of Beverly HillsIn 2019. When Dorit returned a puppy she adopted from the Vanderpump Dog Foundation to an animal shelter, the British designer was furious that her then-bestie hadn’t brought the dog to her instead. RHOBHExecutive producer Chris Cullen later accused Vanderpump of leaking the “puppygate” story to the press. Vanderpump, for the most part, denied the accusations and quit the show halfway through the season 9.

“I [left the show] because I was very, very, very unhappy and I didn’t appreciate being called a liar,” she exclusively told Us Weekly during a March 2021 episode of the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “To accuse me of selling a story, when you never get stories come out of my restaurants, you know, so it was such an insult to me. It was about me, it was about Vanderpump Dog Foundation. This was something I created out of total compassion and my passion project. I just thought, ‘I’m done with it.’”

Dorit is still part of the cast RHOBHThe series’ 12th season premiered on May 11th.
