Rachel Uchitel claims ex Paul ‘PK’ Kemsley ‘spent over $1M dollars’ on alcohol
Rachel Uchitel alleges that she had a brief romantic encounter with Paul “PK” Kemsley, who apparently spent a substantial amount of money on alcohol at her nightclubs. The discussion arose when the former nightclub hostess and manager shared her preferences in men during an episode of the “Behind the Velvet Rope” podcast hosted by David Yontef. Uchitel stated that she is not attracted to overly handsome men and instead prefers those with a humorous and husband-like demeanor. She explained that she met PK while he was going through a divorce with his first wife, Loretta Gold, with whom he has three children. Uchitel, who was working as a TV correspondent at the time, revealed that PK initially became one of her bottle service customers when she managed nightclubs in Las Vegas and New York City. Over the course of a year, they developed a friendship, although PK expressed interest in dating Uchitel, which she declined. According to Uchitel, PK eventually became her top bottle service customer and even set a record by spending $250,000 on bottle service in Las Vegas. This extravagant spending made headlines in the nightclub industry. Uchitel emphasized that she was not attracted to PK based on his appearance but rather fell in love with him due to their working relationship. As she learned to control the atmosphere of the room, PK grew to trust her and spent even more money at her establishments. Uchitel recalled instances where PK spent large amounts of money on alcohol, including $400,000 on one occasion. In total, Uchitel estimated that PK spent over a million dollars on alcohol in her presence. Despite their financial connection, Uchitel viewed PK as more than just a big spender and considered him a close friend whom she cared for deeply. Their relationship eventually turned romantic, and they began dating long-distance. They have two children together, a son named Jagger and a daughter named Phoenix. Uchitel did not disclose when their relationship ended but mentioned that PK filed for bankruptcy shortly after. When asked about PK’s kissing abilities, Uchitel declined to comment, stating that discussing someone else’s husband in that manner made her uncomfortable. However, she expressed her love for him and hinted that she likely believed he was a good kisser. PK has yet to respond to TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment. He married Dorit Kemsley, a star of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” in March 2015, and they have two children together.
Rachel Uchitel claims she had a fling with Paul “PK” Kemsley, who apparently “spent over a million dollars” on alcohol at her nightclubs.
The topic came up after the former nightclub hostess and manager told “Behind the Velvet Rope” podcast host David Yontef during Wednesday’s episode that she doesn’t like men who are “too handsome.”
Instead, she goes for the “funny, husband-y type.”
Uchitel explained that she first met PK — the now-husband of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley — “when he was divorcing” his first wife, Loretta Gold, with whom he shares three children.
The TV correspondent, 48, said the London-born property developer-turned-music manager, 56, “started as [her] bottle service customer” when she “ran nightclubs” in Las Vegas and New York City.
“He would come in with his friends from London and New York and sometimes Dubai, and he would spend some money, and I would help him with his clients. We developed a friendship over a year,” she explained, adding that PK “would always kind of try and date” her, but she wasn’t interested.
According to Uchitel, PK soon “became [her] No. 1 bottle service customer” and was even “the first bottle service customer in Vegas — no joke — to spend $250,000 on bottle service.”
“No one at the time had done that,” she claimed. “I worked at Tao at the time, and he spent all this money. It was a big deal in the bottle service industry, in nightclubs in general. It was the most money anyone had spent on one table in an evening.”
After Uchitel learned how to “cultivate” their working relationship so she “could kind of control the room,” she said she earned PK’s “trust” and that he began spending more and more money at her establishments.
“He was throwing out money on the dance floor, and he was buying the whole room [bottles],” she recalled.
“Another time when he came in, he spent $400,000, so that was not the last time he did that. So he became known as one of our biggest spenders. In New York, I brought him to Tenjune one night for my birthday, and he spent $75,000. In our Manhattan club Marquee, I think he spent $125,000. I mean, he spent over a million dollars in my presence on alcohol.”
But Uchitel saw PK as more than just a big spender.
“I really protected him. I wanted to make sure he was safe. I cared about him as a person, so we developed a completely safe, loving friendship first, so I didn’t see him for what he looked like at all,” she told Yontef.
“I saw him as a person and then I don’t know what happened. I just kind of fell in love with him and then, out of nowhere, I was like, ‘I love this guy.’ Then I started dating him long distance.”
Though she did not reveal when they stopped seeing each other, Uchitel said PK “ended up filing for bankruptcy … somewhat soon after that.”
Asked whether PK was a “good kisser,” Uchitel replied that she didn’t feel comfortable discussing “somebody else’s husband as a kisser,” but noted that she “loved him” and therefore “probably” thought he was.

“I don’t really remember, quite frankly. He is a wonderful guy. He really is. He’s very fun. He’s a gregarious, exciting guy that when he walks in the room, everything’s more exciting because he’s around,” she said.
“The intimate stuff is not where he performs the best, but his personality is so engaging and wonderful.”
PK did not immediately respond to TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment.
He married Dorit, 47, in March 2015. The Bravolebrities are parents to son Jagger, 9, and daughter Phoenix, 7.
