She Has Had a Passion for Fashion Her Whole Life
Dorit has loved fashion ever since she was a young girl. When you watch her on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she is always wearing something fabulous. After graduating from college, she moved to Italy where she worked for a global swimwear company. It is what she learned there that helped her to create her own fashion line. Today, she is the owner of Dorit. Her company specializes in Italian resort wear and swimwear. Most of her collection consists of pieces that are both adjustable and reversible. She believes that pieces like these make swimwear much more versatile. Today, she has an estimated net worth of $242 million. This just goes to show that she does really well at what she does.
She Once Lived In New York
After living and working in Italy for a while, Dorit moved to New York City. It is there that she met her husband Paul. The couple was married in March 2015, making them newlyweds.

According to Dorit, she felt like a princess on the day of her wedding and it was everything that she dreamed it would be.
Her Social Media Profiles No Longer Exist
For quite a while, Dorit had a strong presence in social media. You could check up on her using Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Today, however, if you check her Twitter and Facebook pages, you will find a message saying, “No Longer Available”. While Dorit has not commented about her social media blackout, many people are speculating that it has to do with her being signed on to star in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Many people believe that the powers that be at Bravo wanted her to remain as mysterious as possible. They figure that this will keep people watching the show so that they can get to know the newest cast member better. If you are really interested, you may be able to find a photo or two on her Instagram account.
She Has Been Accused of Having a Fake Accent
Actress Lisa Rinna recently called Dorit out on her accent. According to Rinna, Dorit is an American, therefore, her accent is fake. Dorit has a counter argument for Rinna. According to Dorit, she spent several years living in Italy, and over time, she picked up an Italian accent. Many people believe that this is a strong possibility. Some say that she picked up her accent from her husband Paul, who happens to be British.
She Loves Spending Time With Her Parents
Dorit loves spending time with her parents. She says that she treasures the time that they get to spend together as a family. She also says that she loves seeing them playing with their grandchildren. Her parents made the trip to help Dorit celebrate her 40th birthday. She says that having them there made it one of the happiest birthdays that she has ever had. She says that she was dreading turning 40, however, with her husband and her parents by her side, she couldn’t have been happier.
She Has Celebrity Friends
