RHOBH Star Dorit Kemsley's Odd Connection To Boy George Explained

From her rocky friendship with Teddi Mellencamp to her beef with Garcelle Beauvais, Dorit Kemsley has had no shortage of disputes with other cast members on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." But Kemsley isn't always in confrontation mode. In Season 12 of "RHOBH," her fangirling for guest Jamie Lee Curtis was so iconic that it became a meme. At a charity luncheon, she effusively praised Curtis, repeatedly calling her various gift items "chic." She gushed, "That is the chicest wind chime I have ever seen."

Over the years, "RHOBH" has added plenty of memorable guests to its primary cast, which has created endlessly unforgettable moments. Another notable guest is Boy George, who made a name for himself as the lead singer of English pop band Culture Club. He's also managed by Dorit's husband, Paul "PK" Kemsley, per Variety. As depicted on the reality show, the trio's dynamic is not just professional in nature. Fans have witnessed their share of fun-loving camaraderie between Dorit, PK, and George. But what is the story behind this seemingly random connection?

Boy George is managed by Dorit Kemsley's husband

So, how did Dorit Kemsley and Boy George initially connect? In 2017, Kemsley told Bravo, "There was like an instant love between George, PK, and I." She explained how George became their beloved house guest, adding, "We met George a few years back when he had approached PK about managing him. And when he came to LA, PK had suggested, 'cause we had the room, he said, 'You're welcome to come to the house.'" Kemsley couldn't have been happier to have him living in their home. The family developed a close and trusting relationship with George, who became their daughter Phoenix's godfather.

As a houseguest of the Kemsley family, George was a fly on the wall to the drama that occurred on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Evidently, George got a kick out of the chaos. In a 2019 appearance on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," he shared the advice he gave Kemsley. He exclaimed, "I've been encouraging Dorit to just take it to the next level and just be as obnoxious and difficult as possible. And just say all the wrong things at the right time and make the show exciting!"

Boy George's candid thoughts on RHOBH

Boy George may not be an official housewife, but he still loves to weigh in on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." In a 2019 episode of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" alongside Dorit Kemsley, George revealed which housewife he'd take makeup tips from. He said, "Well, Dorit has the best glam team. I'm sorry." In another "WWHL" clip, a caller asked him what his tagline would be. George replied, "My tagline would be, 'Oh, you b****es want drama?'"

These weren't the only instances George gave his candid thoughts on the "Housewives" drama. In Season 8 of "RHOBH," tensions arose when Dorit Kemsley arrived late to meet then-new housewife Teddi Mellencamp for drinks. In a clip via Bravo, Kemsley, PK, and George laughed about the saga, poking fun at Mellencamp's role as an accountability coach. In a confessional, Kemsley shared, "He [George] loves to be a little b****y and a little sly and he's just funny." As Kemsley's self-proclaimed "pseudo-husband," George has made the amusing reality show even more entertaining.
