Today’s story isn’t all about “wife catches husband cheating”: Dorit Kemsley and her spouse, Paul "PK" Kemsley, want to make it clear that their marriage is not on the rocks despite the rumors circulating within The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills community.
In response to rumors that they were going to get a divorce, the couple said that they have been having problems in their marriage lately but that they have no plans to split up.
In a statement to People on Oct. 25, Dorit and PK affirmed their commitment to navigating these challenges as a united couple for the sake of their family:
"We have not separated nor are we planning to do so. Rather, we are focused on healing, making changes, and doing the things that many couples have to do at some point in their marriage."
The couple thanked everyone for their support and asked that everyone understand while they work out their relationship problems in private.
At the end of their statement, they promised to focus on what was best for their family instead of spreading false stories.
Fans of the Bravo show started to think that Dorit and PK might be having problems in their marriage when they stopped sharing joint Instagram photos since Dorit's 47th birthday party in the early summer. Dorit and PK have two kids, Jagger (9) and Phoenix (7).
PK's Instagram tribute on July 14 celebrated Dorit's birthday, stating:
"Happy bday darling. Here's a few fun memories... let's make so many more... I love you, I'm proud of you... just remind me how old we are telling people you are."
Dorit's last public family photo was posted two days later, expressing gratitude for the birthday wishes received.
Earlier this year, the couple celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary, with Dorit reminiscing on Instagram:
"Twelve years ago I decided to share my heart with @paul_kemsley_pk. Eight years ago today, I married my soulmate. We may not always have it all together, but together we have it all. I love you so much, baby. Happy Anniversary."
That's what our team expert, Jennifer Pearson, says about Dorit's case: "Ignoring problems won't make them disappear. Couples facing challenges in their marriage need to openly communicate and seek professional help if necessary, rather than simply putting on a show for the public. True healing comes from confronting the issues head-on, not from sweeping them under the rug for the sake of appearances."
