Dorota Countess Kishlovsky is Blair Waldorf's lovable and often put-upon maid. As Eleanor Waldorf is often absent, Blair considers Dorota as a sort of mother figure. Despite only being the Waldorf's maid, she is often instrumental in giving advice and guidance to Blair.
Born and raised in Poland as a countess, Dorota's parents forced her into an arranged marriage. She was married at a city hall and believes the non-traditional wedding fated the marriage. Her dream was to come to New York but her husband wanted to stay in their homeland; so while he was at a football game she left him for America and got a job as a housemaid at the Waldorf's.
Dorota is the one person that Blair can trust with her schemes and secrets, and in turn, Dorota is completely loyal and protective of Blair. For example, when Blair's father doesn't come back for Thanksgiving in season one, it is Dorota who tells Blair that her mother kept him away. Dorota is also often humorously in the middle of Blair's feuds with Chuck Bass.
Dorota and Vanya also have a romance and in Season 3 they get married at the Waldorf's. They have a baby at the end of Season 3. However Dorota told Blair to go off and find Chuck rather than stay with her and her new daughter, Anastasia.
In the fourth season, Dorota does not make as many regular appearances as she did before, as Blair is living with Serena van der Woodsen and she, Dorota, is living with Vanya and their daughter, Ana. However, Dorota remains the first person Blair turns to for advice and comfort.
In season five, Dorota once again becomes a regular recurring character.
In the mini webisodes we find out that Dorota is married to a Polish man and is a Countess in her native Poland.
She chooses Vanya over him and asks for a divorce so she can marry him. She claims that she had always loved Vanya but couldn't become close to him because her parents wouldn't grant her a divorce, however she doesn't go back to Poland with her husband and signs the divorce papers.
Dorota is a motherly figure to Blair even though Blair does usually say she is her employer and that she works for her. During Blair's wedding to Louis, Blair's mother even feels territorial because she knows Dorota was able to be more of a mother than herself. Blair deeply cares for Dorota because Dorota is often found doing something for her, which generally involves scheming. Blair often seeks Dorota's help indirectly and Dorota is known for her loyalty towards Blair, even when she's found doing something Blair tells her not to do.
