Kathy Hilton of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills comes from a very wealthy family that has been embroiled in multiple scandals over the years.
Kathy Hilton is the most recent The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, and it’s time to discuss the scandals that famous family members have been involved in over the years. Pisces eccentric housewife Kathy has been a breath of fresh air on the show thanks to her unique sense of humor and calm demeanor. She is “hotel royalty,” but members of the family Hilton hotel dynasty have not always behaved regally.
Bravo fans were more than excited when they learned Kathy would be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills back in fall 2020. Kathy’s RHOBH the cast made sense since her sister Kyle Richards had been on the show from the very beginning. Kathy’s other sister, Kim Richards, also spent some time as a housewife before quitting. Finally, Kathy shared that she had more free time and was interested in seeing what to hold a RHOBH diamond was everything. The Hilton legacy began when Conrad Hilton Sr. was born in Texas. He was considered a boor but created an empire of fancy hotels. He started in New York with The Plaza and the Waldorf Astoria.
The Hilton family has grown into an American dynasty, but modern pop culture enthusiasts are generally more familiar with Hiltons due to family members’ thirst for the LA spotlight. In the early 2000s, viewers were introduced to a series of dramatic events in Paris Hilton’s life, including her leaked 2003 sex tape, “1 Night in Paris. “ The whole adult tape scandal has caused quite a stir. In 2020, Paris, which now has a Netflix cooking show, released a YouTube documentary, It’s Paris. In it, she revealed that she suffered trauma as a child while attending behavior modification school in her late teens. Paris got into trouble with the law, and after violating her probation in 2007, she spent three weeks in jail. In 2010, Paris was arrested for drug possession after a bag of cocaine fell from her purse. See Kathy and her daughters Paris and Nicky Hilton below:
In 2017, Kathy’s son Conrad Hilton III made headlines after being arrested for attempting to break into the home of his ex-girlfriend EG Daily. His actions violated an injunction against the hotel heir. Conrad has actually had several run-ins with the law. In 2015, he yelled obscenities on a London-LA flight and assaulted a member of the cabin crew. After the plane landed, Conrad was greeted by law enforcement and arrested. In August 2016, Kathy from RHOBHConrad’s offspring were prosecuted for crashing into a woman’s car with her Range Rover. It is alleged that he threw a bong out the window while covered in vomit.
The Hilton family have skeletons in their closet, some of which RHOBH fans just aren’t aware of it. Kathy has done her best to keep her children’s scandals a secret. Bravo fans love to watch Kathy on the weekly show as she shares her wisdom with the other women. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers are just hoping she returns in a full-time role next season. The drama still follows the Hiltons, so it may not be long before another public scandal erupts.
