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 had no comment when contacted by Page Six.
He married Dorit, 47, in March 2015. The Bravolebrities are parents to son Jagger, 9, and daughter Phoenix, 7.
