Dorit Kemsley and her husband, PK, didn’t waste any time addressing the recent “rumors and hearsay” online claiming they’ve separated.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple issued a joint statement and denied those claims but admitted they had some “challenging years” in their marriage.
On the same night that the new season premiered, a few outlets reported that the couple had split after eight years of marriage.
The news didn’t seem far-fetched as Dorit revealed on the show that she was having trouble connecting with her husband after she endured a terrifying home invasion in 2021.
Dorit, who has been suffering from PTSD since her ordeal, told her castmate Erika Jayne that PK was not there for her as much as she would have liked because he was traveling and spending a lot of time in England.
Interestingly, Erika predicted PK and Dorit would be the next couple to get divorced during a shady moment at BravoCon 2022, which caused a rift in their friendship.
The two women were trying to hash things out in the premiere when Dorit opened up about the struggles in her marriage.

A few stories came out on RHOBH premiere night claiming that Dorit and PK were separated, but the couple has denied those claims.
In a statement to PEOPLE, they said, “We remain committed to working through these issues as a united couple for our 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.”
Before ending the statement, the couple asked for people to be understanding as they focus on doing what’s best for their family.
