Dorota Kishlovsky is the Waldorf's Polish housekeeper. She cares deeply for Blair, even though Blair takes advantage of her and is often cross and snappish. The truth is: she sees Dorota as a substitute mother figure. In the web series "Chasing Dorota," it is revealed that Dorota is actually a Polish countess with a secret husband, Stanislaw. After fleeing to America to escape her family, she begins working for the Waldorfs in 2004. She eventually divorces her husband and becomes involved with Vanya, the Russian doorman at the van der Woodsen's apartment building.
