During “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 12, episode 17, Kathy Hilton tried to get her castmates to drink tequila from Eva Longoria’s brand, Casa Del Sol. She explained that she, her daughter, Nicky Hilton, and her son-in-law, James Rothschild, were investors in the company. Her co-stars, including her sister Kyle Richards, refused to taste the tequila.
Several fans took to Twitter to share that they didn’t appreciate how the RHOBH cast reacted to Kathy Hilton in the scene from season 12, episode 17. For example, a social media user wrote“She was so cute, all excited to show the ladies the tequila… and then Kyle [Richards] just mock her/none of them acted even a bit interested. It was so sad to see.” The RHOBH star’s daughter, Paris Hilton, retweeted the post, writing: “So unkind 🥺.” The 41-year-old also liked numerous tweets about the situation, including: a message that reads“@ParisHilton has her own career spanning more than 20 years with shows, movies, music and a public personality. @KathyHilton also has more connections with famous people than Kyle could have ever dreamed of. Kyle fought for relevance through a show. Kathy & Paris already had it.”
Additionally, the “Stars Are Blind” singer liked a Twitter post about how Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, reacted to his sister-in-law during the trip to Aspen.
“Mauricio is so rude to @KathyHilton Why does he act like he hates her so much? #rhob,” read the tweet.
On an episode of their podcast, “Two Ts In A Pod,” in September 2022, former RHOBH personality Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and “Real Housewives of Orange County” Tamra Judge spoke about the situation.
While shooting the episode “Two Ts In A Pod”, Arroyave suggested that she disapproved of Paris Hilton’s tweet referring to Richards.
“Paris is, you know, taking things without knowing the full context, putting pressure on her aunt on behalf of her mother. And you know, I personally think those who live in greenhouses shouldn’t be throwing rocks, like in the world of Twitter,” Arroyave claimed. “That said, I think when it comes to what happened with Kyle and the tequila and… [Lisa] Rinna and all those things, I think there’s an unwritten rule that, as of course, all housewives and friends of their brands are going to plug. Whether they talk about it or not, [Kathy Hilton] talked about it several times.”
She went on to say that Kathy Hilton did not participate in events with her co-stars before promoting the tequila.
“Kathy’s come to Aspen, she won’t show up for the snowmobile or skis now and she’s asleep and then comes up, then she wants two seconds of shtick and then hooking up her tequila.” And they’re all stoned and laughing about it,” said the former RHOBH star.
During a July 2022 interview with E! Insider, Kathy Hilton revealed that she would not be interested in becoming a full-time RHOBH cast member. She explained that her husband, Rick Hilton, does not want to be seen much in the Bravo series.
“Normally I never say never, but absolutely not. No, because that way you have to involve your family and my family wouldn’t be interested. And my husband wouldn’t be interested. He’s a businessman, so it’s never going to happen and your kids, your husband, everything is involved,” the Paris in Love star said.
New episodes of RHOBH will premiere on Bravo on Wednesday.
