The season 12 premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills got off to a good start – with many women attending workout classes, getting massages and flying overseas. These women live lives of luxury and that’s why we love watching their stories unfold, but those feelings of envy came to a screeching halt when Dorit KemsleyThe terrifying break-in unfolded on the screen. But before we get to that, let’s unpack what a few of the ladies revealed in the opening minutes of this week’s episode.
Begin, sutton street is “single and ready to mingle”. And so it is Garcelle Beauvais, like on a trip to Miami together, she suggested to Sutton that they go looking for men – or a man, that they could tag as a team. She claimed she was joking, but maybe that’s not a bad idea. Later, Erika Jayne Told Lisa Rina that she is also dating again and enjoys having sex with the men she meets. Lisa is obviously married, so she’s not meeting new men, but she’s married to one of the sexiest men alive – Harry Hamlin – so she’s fine. She is, however, angry at Sutton for claiming WWHL that she did not thank Sutton for an alleged invitation to one of the Elton Johncharity events.
Sutton claims she invited Lisa and Harry to the event, but Lisa claims she and Harry were invited by Elton himself and only sat at Sutton’s table as a favor . Lisa is “not happy” with that claim, and while we love mini-feuds, we kind of hope this one doesn’t last all season. The ladies can certainly do better than that.
Garcelle: “Apart from Erika who says it has been refuted, I haven’t seen anything. Not in the newspapers, not in the blogs. Nowhere. If it’s true, why isn’t it in the press?

Anyway, when Garcelle and Sutton returned to Beverly Hills, Garcelle met Erika for a workout. And afterwards, she asked Erika if she would be willing to apologize to Sutton for “threatening” her last season. But Erika didn’t think she’d ever threatened Sutton, even though she openly told him she’d “get her” if she called her a liar again. Also, Erika said Sutton was asking for it. She said Sutton took a lot of swings, so she should expect people to come back.
Erika further told Garcelle that she was not responsible for the pain these “widows and orphans” went through, after her ex, To M Girardi, allegedly stole their plane crash settlement money. It’s something Sutton accused her of last season, but Erika said those claims, that she was also responsible for taking and spending the money, have been refuted. Garcelle, however, found this hard to believe as it had not yet been reported. And when the producers asked Erika for proof that she was off the hook, Erika told them to find it themselves. “Bravo can do their due diligence,” she replied to a producer, when he asked “when and how” the claims had been refuted. “Go read everything my lawyers have published [publicly].” Erika further explained that not all claims against her have been “dismissed”, but now is the time to “smile and have fun”. Garcelle, on the other hand, thinks Erika is just “in denial.”
Finally, Erika revealed that she is not yet focused on her divorce from Tom. Although they are estranged, she said she has much bigger lawsuits to worry about at the moment.
And that brings us back to Dorit. After attending a wedding in London, she and her two children returned to Beverly Hills without PACK. He stayed in London for a few more days, which meant Dorit and her children were home alone for a while. And it was during one of those home nights without PK that two armed robbers broke into Dorit’s house and held her at gunpoint.

Following the “violent home invasion”, the ladies rallied around Dorit and gave her all the support she needed. Kyle richard was in tears for days throughout the ordeal, but someone not as bothered by the incident was Sutton. When she went to Kyle’s and learned how upset Dorit and PK were, she said she was “putting out fires” herself “all day too.” And when Kyle asked her what kind of “fire” she was putting out, she said she had trouble getting a French designer to come to the country to help her with her home. “It’s all relative,” Sutton said after Kyle told Sutton she couldn’t believe she was comparing her situation to Dorit’s. “It’s been a weird day – a weird morning. It’s like being in a movie,” Sutton added. Then, instead of talking about Dorit, Sutton told Kyle how she scheduled a therapy session the following week because she was feeling “strange energy.” She did, however, apologize for not having such an exciting life as being “held at gunpoint”.
Sutton then goes after Erika, saying that she herself doesn’t need a man with money because she has her own money. But she suspects Erika is missing her “big house” and all the money that came from her relationship with Tom, so she’s probably hoping to meet another man who will provide her with that luxury.
Then, in the final scene of this week’s episode, most of the ladies huddled together at Kyle’s house to comfort Dorit. It was Erika, Garcelle, Lisa and the hostess herself (Kyle), so Sutton and Crystal Yes Minkoff were not present. But when Dorit arrived, she shared the gruesome details of the burglary. “When PK is out of town, the kids still sleep with me. I put [daughter] Phoenix in my bed, and I was so exhausted, and so jetlagged. And I thought, ‘You know what? I am so tired.’ So I picked her up and put her in her bed. I came back, washed my face, brushed my teeth and went to bed. And I grabbed my pillow, and I was so happy to be in bed. Then all of a sudden I hear the door open,” she began to tell the group.
“I thought they were my children. Then I don’t see them and I don’t see them. So I get out of bed, and that’s when I saw — not a little person, but a big nobody. When he saw me, he panicked. And he charged me, grabbed me, put me down, [and yelled], ‘Get down on the floor, I’m going to kill you!’ He pointed a gun at me, and I was just bent over sobbing, saying, ‘Please, I have little babies. Please, I’m a mother, please – my children need me, please, please, please [don’t kill me], my children need me. And I begged him, and the other guy [said], ‘Just fucking kill her. Just fucking kill her. It was two men. One of them collected all the stuff [asking where the watches and money were], and the other guy stood up and said, ‘Get up. Show us where everything is. I said, ‘Okay. Take whatever you want, but please don’t take my babies away from me. Please don’t let them see you. Please don’t let them see their mom like this.
“I thought that was it. I’m going to die. He’s going to pull the trigger, then I imagined them killing me, then going and killing my kids,” Dorit said before telling the ladies that she needed to find a way to get over the trauma she had been through, and they suggested she get into some kind of therapy right away.
It was also during this meeting with the ladies, that Dorit and PK finally reunited. He had just flown to Los Angeles, and when he found out Dorit was at Kyle’s, he went straight there. They had a tearful hug and he shared how bad he felt not to be there the night their house was broken into. But everyone, including Dorit, told him that it wasn’t his fault and that it was probably better that he wasn’t there because if he had been, the night might have been fine. worse.
