Why Does Boy George Live With Dorit Kemsley?

There are two new faces on this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… Dorit Kemsley and her houseguest, pop icon Boy George. So why does George live with Dorit and her husband PK?

“There was like an instant love between Geroge, PK, and I. We met George a few years back when he had approached PK about managing him,” Dorit recalled to The Daily Dish. “And when he came to L.A., PK had suggested, ’cause we had the room, he said, ‘You’re welcome to come to the house.'”

“I think when you stay in someone’s house and you live in their lives and you’re playing with their children and you see them as a couple [it’s different]. I mean he sees us before bed; he sees us first thing in the morning, and it’s not like this lunch date per se,” she said. “You kind of get more intimately connected, and that’s definitely what happened.”

“And George is like family for that very reason. He’s my daughter’s godfather. He’s my pseudo husband,” she said. “I’m definitely in a menage-marriage at times. He’s someone I trust implicitly. When my husband’s not there, it’s him and I — and we’ll dine together; we’ll cook together. He’s with the kids. All of his friends become our friends and vice versa. And he’s also George in our house. He’s not always Boy George.”

“Yes, of course, you take one peak into his closet and its like whoa, Boy George regalia, through and through,” she said. “But he is George: this down-to-earth, super-funny, warm, natural, big, beautiful heart, down-to-earth guy.”

    Isn’t a manager partially responsible for their client’s image? The first thing I thought (and I don’t think I’ve gotten past) is the image of a fading star couch surfing because he blew his millions.

    • He has a massive house in the best neighborhood in London, and has made millions beyond Culture Club as one of the world’s most in-demand DJs. He’s okay.

        I was referring to the optics of it. And commenting more on the manager that designs the PR for the talent. And isn’t it true that most of these pop stars with supposed beaucoup bucks have mansions and showy wealthy until the day it’s all repossessed? Even the Housewives seem to have this problem now and then.

    It’s not hat unusual. A lot of and performing artists have a tendency to have close relationships with agents, managers or assistants where there’s no clear separation between work and down time. It’s all jumbled in together and you really do become each other’s surrogate family, sometimes to the point that you may live in each other’s houses for a spell while you’re on a roll with projects. It just becomes an environment that makes it conducive to living, eating, and breathing the work.

    Why would he live there? 1. They are having a threesome? 2. It is convenient? 3. They are like family? All of the above?
    I do not know for sure, but they all seem to get along, so I have no problem with it. I always liked Culture Club back when they were big. Boy George has a big personality. I am watching him on Celebrity Apprentice now and see more of who he is on that show. He loves to dress outrageously, and I love to see what he will wear next.

    Sorry, not buying any of it. I think Boy George went through his money some time ago and needs to stay with PK and Dorit. I’m sure he’s a nice guy but his time has pasted.
