Kathy Hilton, 61, will not be joining as a full-time Housewife, instead she will make regular appearances as a friend of the show, according to TMZ.
Although this isn’t the first time there’s been reports about Kathy Hilton joining the Bravo reality series, it’s being reported that this time she’s seriously considering being a part of the show and has shared this sentiment with RHOBH producers.
Kathy’s sister, Kyle Richards —who is an original cast-member of the Bravo show — has always been on board with the idea of Kathy possibly joining the show.
Last year when asked by Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live what she thought about Kathy Hilton joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — Kyle Richards said she welcomed the idea very much.
“I’ve been asked about my sister Kathy being on the show for many, many years. I know the audience thinks it would be a lot of fun.”
“I think she’d be really funny,” she added. “I don’t know if she would do it and it’s actually just a rumor, so we’ll just have to fantasize about it until then.”
Kyle Richards and sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton have fought for years but the matriarch of the Richards sisters, Kathy Hilton, distanced herself further after Kyle produced television series, American Woman — based on the family’s dysfunctional childhood. Paramount Networks announced that the series, American Woman, was canceled after one season.
Additionally, Kyle’s niece Nicky Hilton’s wedding to James Rothschild in July 2015 was the source of major family drama. Kyle was invited but not her husband Mauricio Umansky, who was beefing with Kathy’s husband, Rick Hilton. Mauricio use to work for Rick’s real estate company and when Rick’s team would not make Mauricio a partner — he left to start a rival real estate firm, called ‘The Agency.’ As a result, Mauricio was not welcome at any Hilton events, which placed Kyle in the middle.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producers are scrambling to find new cast members following Denise Richards’ unexpected departure. In addition, there’s a possibility that Garcelle Beauvais may not return for season 11.
