A family affair? New reports seem to confirm the rumor that Kathy Hilton will join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for season 11. The socialite will join her sister, Kyle Richards, on the Bravo reality show.
Kathy Hilton Officially Joins RHOBH
Kathy Hilton may not be a household name outside of Bravoholics or reality show junkies. The sometimes-actress is mom to one of the first reality stars – Paris Hilton. Further, she is also the sister of RHOBH’s Kim and Kyle Richards.
While Kim is no longer a diamond holder, she makes the occasional guest appearances. Kyle Richards is now the last remaining OG of the Bravo Beverly Hills franchise.
The outlets both report that Kathy Hilton won’t be holding a diamond this season. Rather, she will appear in a ‘Friend of’ role. Kyle recently spoke out about the rumors of her sister joining the show. While she stopped short of confirming the news, she said she was hopeful it would happen.
The fashion designer wants RHOBH fans to get to know her other sister. Kyle describes Kathy as “one the funniest people there is.”
But the three sisters aren’t always on the best of terms.
Sometimes Tense Relationship Between the Sisters
RHOBH fans saw from the get-go that Kyle and Kim Richards have a strange relationship. In one early episode, Kim accuses Kyle of stealing her house, while Kyle calls Kim an alcoholic. That latter part later played out on the show, as Kim sought treatment for her alcohol problem.
However, since leaving RHOBH, Kim has gotten sober. As a result, her relationship with Kyle improved.
But Kyle and Kathy Hilton had a falling out over Kyle’s American Woman TV show. The brief series was based on their mother’s life, and Kathy did not like how Kyle portrayed their mother.
It seems the hatchet is now buried. For now, at least. As viewers know, the ladies of RHOBH know how to bring the drama. In fact, actress Denise Richards abruptly quit after Season 10 due to bullying and accusations from her co-stars.
Will Kathy Hilton be able to hold her own against her sister and the other women? We’ll have to tune in to find out!
Fans Not Happy With the Casting News
Kathy Hilton’s name was just one of the names thrown around about joining the show. In the past few months, Kris Jenner, Caitlyn Jenner, and Tori Spelling were all rumored Season 11 stars of RHOBH.
But with the confirmation came a lot of backlash from fans on social media. One Twitter user wrote that the show is now becoming the Kyle show.
This is turning into a Richards sisters show now…. Plenty of savage mfs in 90210 and they choose Kathy… Say goodbye to great ratings bravo— Muzukuru womuremba (@elvisbhebhe21) October 27, 2020
Some of the other negative comments include:
- Oh Lordy..am I the only one not excited about this? Total snooze fest. Maybe it’s time for Kyle to go if she constantly has to have her family be a part of the show.
- Oh yay a season of her and Kyle ganging up on everyone
- I feel like this is a preview for “Keeping Up With The Richards”. No thanks!
