Dorit Kemsley is taking to her blog to discuss #pantygate and her gift to Erika Girardi during this week’s episode of RHOBH. Dorit admits that she can see where Erika would be upset that she talked about the subject with the other girls and that at the table when Lisa Vanderpump was asking questions about the topic, it just needed to be over.
“This week it was lovely to see everything that Lisa V and Ken continue to do for her dog shelter and dog foundation, Vanderpump Dogs. She has so much ambition, passion and perseverance that she has put into this movement to stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. She has certainly opened my eyes to the horrible situation. This resolution will be a major accomplishment when it passes, and Iâ€™m thrilled for her.
Going to the doctorâ€™s office to see our darling Phoenixâ€™s head scans was very nerve-wracking. She’s had this plastic helmet on to shape her skull for so long, and although she wasnâ€™t in pain and it wasnâ€™t bothering her, it is still very worrisome, and as a mother you just want to see her relieved of it. She’s just a little baby, and itâ€™s a daily struggle to see her in the helmet, so we were incredibly relieved when we got the wonderful news that she didnâ€™t need it anymore. I felt like the world had lifted from my shoulders at that moment.
Iâ€™ve gotten quite close to Kyle, but I still donâ€™t know Lisa, Eileen or Erika very well and would like to get to know the group. I was looking forward to drinks with Lisa and Eileen. Iâ€™m aware of Lisa Vâ€™s past incidents with them, but I feel that itâ€™s important to get to know these women for myself. I respect the success that both Lisa R and Eileen have. Itâ€™s great to speak with two hard-working women who have a lot of experience with raising children, and Iâ€™m sure I can get some tips and advice from them which Iâ€™ll appreciate! When I heard that Erika had suggested the idea of Escape Room, I thought it was a great idea and it would be fun. I love these kind of challenges, where we can work as a team and use our brains. I find it so stimulating.
This week I clearly still had the white party “no panties” mishap on my mind, and so I wanted to ask the girls about it. It had taken me and PK by surprise when Erika announced this to the group last week, and I honestly think itâ€™s natural for anyone, man or woman, to look after someone says that out loud to a group. I would have! Personally, Iâ€™ve always been very aware of my clothing and whatâ€™s revealing or not. I take care not to reveal or let anything slip, but Iâ€™m not perfect and mishaps do happen. So, looking back, Iâ€™m sure it was an innocent mishap and Erika didnâ€™t mean to flash, but it happened. Even Kyle had seen it, so I thought letâ€™s laugh it off!
Whilst I was shopping with Kyle, I explained that I wanted to have some fun to lighten the situation, so rightly or wrongly, I decided to buy the panties for a little joke. I thought it would be a funny way for us to make light of what had happened and then put it behind us.
I think Erika has a great sense of humor and she wasnâ€™t offended by the underwear gift. She was fun and accepted the gift and played along with the joke. But, I do see now how she felt it was out of line for me to talk with the group about it.
Given how openly she had shared she was panty-less, I honestly didnâ€™t think she would care, but you live and learn.
I was glad we had the fun of the Escape Room to take our minds onto other things, and it was great to see Eileen and Lisa V work well together. It was a lot of fun and something different to do together. Afterwards when Lisa V asked about our no panties conversation at the lunch table, I knew it was time to finish the conversation and move on for good! After all itâ€™s just a silly mishap and a bit of fun.”
