Kathy Hilton is spilling the tea!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ latest “friend of the Housewives” is taking over the franchise one wacky moment at a time.
It’s no secret Bravo fans are going crazy for Kathy on RHOBH; she’s quickly become a fan favorite. Kathy’s meme-able Housewife moments are off the charts, and we’re only a few episodes into season 11, which says a lot.
Kathy loves the reaction fans have had to her being on the show.
“I have seen, you know, some of the different blogs and on my Instagram, and it feels wonderful. There’s a lot of very nice people out there,” she tells E! News.
The well-known Beverly Hills socialite admits she hasn’t watched much of the show but says she and husband Rick Hilton have caught one or two episodes.
She notes that she probably won’t watch the rest of the season.
“You know what, I don’t watch it,” she confesses. “We went to dinner the other night with my friend. I’m not big on TV. I mean, I have watched it because it is a good idea to kind of get an idea of how you’re being portrayed and, as they say, edited, but I pretty much know what I did, and I said. I can’t just sit there and watch TV.”
“We did watch one together, and then I had on the second episode…we did watch the show together, the one with the bottom’s up,” she noted.
Kathy admitted that Rick loved seeing her on the show but is used to her antics and practical jokes.
“Yes, but he’s used to me,” she explained. “That’s just the beginning. I love to pull tricks. In fact, I’ve had practice with that here at my house. I have done that before, the water martinis. But you know what I didn’t realize? I didn’t realize that I was being punked at the end. Punking the punker!”
As for filming a reality show with her sister, Kyle Richards, Kathy admits doing the show together has only made their bond stronger. In fact, Kathy wasn’t worried about how the show would affect their relationship.
“I think that it’s made the bond stronger, and I was really looking forward to spending that time with her. And then we both get on each other’s nerves. You’ll see. I think that happens with siblings and especially when you’re in close quarters and spending a lot of time, but I’d rather that than have not being able to see her, not having a relationship at all,” Kathy said.
“We have a lot of fun and a lot of good laughs too. I did watch the little piece last night where she was dancing on the table, and I start to laugh, and I see myself kicking her just back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, just on her leg crying. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed that hard in my life. I showed my husband that I said, “Honey, have you ever seen me laugh this hard?” And he said, “Well, I have, but that is pretty funny.” It’s interesting to watch myself like that,” she continued.
When it comes to doing another season of RHOBH and/or becoming a full-time Housewife, Kathy said, “So I’ve always said “never say never” because if you have asked me a year and a half, two years ago, would I ever be on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I would have looked at you like you’re nuts. And I did do it; it was organic. I was helping my niece look for a prom dress; I happen to have a dress line. There were certain things I had to be in, going for graduation…So the answer to that is no, that I will never do. That I can say, “No, I will not.””
She also notes that her daughters, Paris and Nicky Hilton, are coming around to the idea of her being on RHOBH. As we previously reported, Nicky and Paris were hesitant about their mom joining the world of reality TV.
“Paris the other day sent me a few memes that I hadn’t seen because I don’t know where to find all those things. I’m still learning to navigate. I know a lot about the Internet, but I can’t send you something that somebody sent me. I’m still learning. That used to get them upset that I didn’t know all of the different things. Now I think they get annoyed when they come over and I’m on my iPad. So Paris, the fact that she sent me some of those memes is a very good sign. And Nicky, she seems to be coming around. She’s a very proud girl, so she waits to admit that she’s wrong, you know?” Kathy admitted.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
