Dorit Kemsley Accent
Despite being from Connecticut, Dorit has a very different accent from a normal American and when asked about it she said;
“I think the way I speak is probably a combination of many things. First and foremost, I am married to a Brit who’s got a very, very strong London accent, and I’m sure some of his inflections have sort of rolled over on me. My parents are not American. I was born and raised in America. I did spend a significant amount of time, nearly 10 years, back-and-forth, going to Europe. I spent a lot of time working all over the world and in various places of the world where people didn’t speak English all that well.
I had a tendency to over-enunciate, so I think at times some of my English is the part that and part inflection. And you know, being around a lot of Europeans and a lot of Brits, you just become a product of your environment, really. That’s who I am. That’s the way I speak. I don’t hear it. My husband doesn’t hear it but it’s definitely become a topic of conversation.”
