Here’s what you need to know about Dorit Kemsley’s net worth:

1. Kemsley Is the Owner of Her Own Swimwear Line Called ‘Beverly Beach by Dorit’

In 2017, Kemsley launched her own swimwear line called Beverly Beach by Dorit. Throughout her time on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” viewers have seen her brand come to life and have also gotten a behind-the-scenes look into product photoshoots and events for the company.

“I’m a big believer in passion and hard work,” Kemsley said about growing her brand during an interview with Insider in December 2020. “I think those are two key ingredients.”

In April 2020, Bravo’s The Daily Dish reported that Kemsley had recently resolved a “lawsuit with her former business partner” in the swimwear company. “I’ve lived with this lawsuit that I couldn’t express my frustration about for so long,” she said during the RHOBH season 10 premiere on April 15, 2020, according to The Daily Dish. “Now it’s finally over.”

2. Kemsley Earns Money by Appearing on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’

Of course, Kemsley earns money by appearing as a cast member on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Kemsley has been appearing on the show since season seven in 2016 and 2017 after her former friend, Lisa Vanderpump, introduced her to the group.

According to Editor Choice, Kemsley earns an estimated $100,000 per season. This number is lower than her RHOBH counterparts, like Lisa Rinna, who makes an estimated $450,000 per season according to the outlet.

The List reported that early stars of the show were paid much more modestly, with Bethenny Frankel saying she negotiated to get $7,250 for her first season of “Real Housewives of New York” in 2008 but was earning up to $40,000 per episode by 2020. Meanwhile, Radar reported that NeNe Leakes on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” was earning $2.85 million in 2019.

3. Kemsley Launched a Bridal Dress Collection in 2021

Not only is Kemsley a swimwear designer, but now she’s also a wedding dress designer. In January 2021, Kemsley announced that she would be collaborating with Australian designer Nektaria to create a line of bridal gowns.

“There’s something so romantic and so special about wedding gowns,” Kemsley revealed to Brides in January 2021. “I love weddings—it’s a fabulous time of your life, it’s happy, it’s enjoyable, and immediately when the opportunity came my way I just thought, ‘This is something that I’d really like to do.'”

Brides reported that the dresses would first become available at a New York City trunk show in February and that the starting price is $6,000. The Nektaria website provides a signup form for email alerts about “Dorit’s latest Bridal and Ready to Wear Collections.”

4. Kemsley Put Her Home on the Market in 2020

In September 2020, Kemsley and her husband, PK, put their Encino, California, home on the market for close to $9.5 million, according to Variety. During the last season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Kemsley was excited to show viewers the new home and even threw a large season finale party there.

According to the outlet, Kemsley’s home boasts nearly 9,000 square feet with six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The home also includes a home theatre and a swimming pool. Variety reported that the Kemsleys were asking $3 million — nearly a third more — than they paid for the home just a year earlier.

“Dorit and PK are selling their home because they are now going to run their businesses from their house,” a source told The Daily Mail at the time. “Their kids are also being homeschooled so they are looking for a larger estate that is laid out for this new COVID world we find ourselves in.”

5. There Have Been Rumors About Kemsley’s Finances in the Past

Over the past few years, there have been various rumors about Kemsley and her husband’s finances. According to court documents obtained Us Weekly, the couple had their bank accounts frozen in 2019, but Kemsley later debunked those speculations during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live.”

“It’s an ongoing issue that PK’s had, and this was our bank account, and I actually stopped anything from happening, and the judge decided to wait until the situation, things become more clear, and that’s it,” Kemsley explained during her appearance.

During season 10 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Kemsley and her husband also addressed rumors during an on-camera confessional.

Viewers can catch the season 11 premiere of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on Wednesday, May 19, at 8 p.m. Eastern time/7 p.m. Central time on Bravo.
