Dorit Kemsley in December 2022.

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne revealed she is bothered by what she said in regards to her castmate Dorit Kemsley when she filmed a 2022 BravoCon group interviewWhile recording the August 28 “Two Ts In A Pod” podcast episode, hosted by her former RHOBH co-star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and “Real Housewives of Orange County” personality Tamra Judge, Jayne referenced that Andy Cohen asked her “What Bravolebrity relationship do you think is headed to Splitsville next?” during a “Watch What Happens Live” taping at the October 2022 fan convention. The “Pretty Mess” singer said she did not “want to answer this question because [she] feel[s] bad” before walking to the middle of the stage and stating, “I think it’s Dorit and [her husband] PK [Kemsley].” 

In the “Two Ts In A Pod” interview, Jayne stated she wished she had said a different answer to Cohen’s question. She then shared the Kemsleys were going through marital issues. The 52-year-old asserted, however, that she did not know that her castmate and her husband were “having a problem.”

“It bothers me very much. You know why? Because I didn’t know they were having a problem … I was being on the moment and if you look back, you hear me say, ‘I don’t want to answer this question,’” said Jayne. 

The RHOBH star stated that she immediately sent a text message to Dorit Kemsley in a group chat to apologize for her remark. 

“I knew she took it bad when I texted her and there was no response,” said the reality television personality. 

Judge chimed in that she did not understand Dorit Kemsley’s response, stating, “I come from the mentality, like, if it’s not true, then laugh it off.” Jayne responded that her remark about the Kemsleys’ relationship was true.

“That was the problem. And I didn’t know. And then she told me. And Dorit also revealed some other things that happened to her, you know, post-home evasion [in October 2021] that are pretty heavy,” said Jayne. 

She asserted that “had [she] known that, [she] would’ve never f***** said it.” The mother of one also shared that she believes Dorit Kemsley and her husband “are the most fun.” In addition, she referenced that reports began circulating in July 2023 that her other co-star Kyle Richards and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, have separated.

“It comes out that Kyle and Mauricio were struggling, Dorit and PK were struggling in their marriages,” said Jayne.

Dorit Kemsley mentioned Jayne’s remark about her relationship in an April 2023 interview with Page Six. She stated that while she and her husband were not “happy with what Erika said at BravoCon,” they have remained friends. 

“You have to look at things in isolation and accept that we’ve also had a friendship for seven years,” shared Kemsley. 

Kemsley is not the only RHOBH star who weighed in on Jayne’s remark. Richards shared that she took issue with her answer about the Kemsleys in an October 2022 “Two Ts In A Pod” episode.

“I was so shocked and honestly, I mean, I don’t know why she did that because I know PK and Dorit better than anybody in the group … they are a really loving and supportive couple,” stated Richards. 

She also said she was aware Jayne stated that her answer was meant to be a joke. The “Halloween” actress asserted, however, that “jokes are supposed to be funny.” In addition, Richards stated that she believed Jayne’s remark would cause rumors to swirl about the Kemsleys’ marriage. 

“I know from experience, these things follow you no matter what. She can say ‘I was joking’ but then for a while now people are going to say, ‘They are going to be the next couple for sure.’ The next thing you know, people are saying ‘Oh I’ve heard they’ve been having problems,’” stated the 54-year-old.
