Dorit Kemsley defended her husband, Paul “PK” Kemsley, after his recent arrest for suspicion of DUI.

“He’s very regretful. He fully understands the nature and the danger of drinking and driving,” the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, 45, told a photographer while leaving the 2021 People’s Choice Awards with her co-star Kyle Richards on Tuesday.

“He was barely over the limit, and he fully understands and reassures me that it will never happen again,” she added.

PK, 54, was arrested on Nov. 23 after having wine with dinner and driving on the 101 in Los Angeles, the Daily Mail reported. He was pulled over off Laurel Canyon and initially blew a .081 during a breathalyzer test. The legal limit in California is .08.

PK was then was arrested and taken to a police station, where he blew a .073. He was held at the station for an hour before being driven home.

Kemsley said PK promised her it won’t happen again.

“While out with a business colleague, PK consumed a glass of wine with dinner,” PK’s attorney, Alan Jackson, told Page Six on Tuesday.

“Following a traffic stop, it was determined that he may have been close to the legal limit. He regrets the fact he did not take alternate transportation home that evening. PK takes the allegations extremely seriously and fully cooperated with the authorities,” the statement continued.

“This would mark the first and only such incident in PK’s long driving history. He has learned a valuable lesson.”

PK’s arrest follows the Kemsleys’ terrifying home invasion on Oct. 27. He was out of town at the time, but his wife was held at gunpoint while two men ransacked her house and stole designer purses, jewelry and watches.

The couple’s kids, Jagger, 7, and Phoenix, 5, were home during the robbery but asleep in bed.
