In an exclusive interview at BravoCon in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 47-year-old said Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star spoke to ET’s Brice Sander about recent rumors about her marriage and an alleged affair with her close friend Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky.
Dorit firmly dismissed the speculation that her marriage to PK was on the rocks and shared why she decided to do so to give an explanation about their marriage. “We found out that they were going to release it and I…it’s just a rumor and hearsay and we really wanted to shut it down because it’s not true,” she told ET. “I know how these things build and grow.”
Dorit said she and PK have been “very open” about the problems in their marriage. “I’ve talked this season about the challenges we’ve had, and we’ve had a difficult few years after the home invasion,” she admitted. “I have been through a lot personally and of course it has affected our marriage. We were very honest and open about it. I just wanted people to know that this is a rumor. We are not separate; We’re not getting divorced. We’ve had a difficult couple of years and we’re still figuring things out, but we’re good.”
Dorit further addressed the rumors of an alleged affair with Mauricio. “Ridiculous. I mean, that’s honestly one of the rumors that I find so absolutely ridiculous that it hurts because they’re friends of ours,” she said. “PK and Mo are very close – very, very close. It’s the most absurd rumor ever. So when I hear things like that, it should make people believe and realize that you shouldn’t believe everything you read because it might be as ridiculous as…”This.”
