Kathy Hilton reveals that she didn’t watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for years following the fight between her sisters Kim Richards and Kyle Richards at the season one finale party.
During a fight in a limo, Kyle revealed that Kim was an alcoholic after the two got into a massive screaming match.
On the ‘Lunch with Bruce’ podcast, Kathy admits she “broke down” when she first watched Kyle reveal that Kim was an alcoholic and that as a result, she “didn’t speak to [Kyle] for a long time.”
“That to me, Paris [Hilton], and I watched that,” she said. “We broke down, you know when you cry, and you’re shaking, and your lip starts to quiver, and my mommy’s not there, and there’s no one it’s like — I felt helpless and alone. Paris was crying too.”
“Plus, I’m very ADD,” she added. “I’m sure you can see that. I’m very quick and very … I can’t really, I don’t watch. And if I did watch that first season, I would only zip quickly to see Kim and Kyle. I can’t sit there and watch; it could be the best show in the world.”
Years later, in 2020, Kathy finally decided to join RHOBH as a “friend” of the Housewives.
Kathy, Kyle, and Kim are all on good terms at the moment; however, Kathy didn’t attend Kyle’s daughter Portia’s bat mitzvah over the weekend, which could cause some drama between the two. Perhaps it will play out during season 12, which is set to begin filming at the end of the month.
