Kathy Hilton is the older half-sister of Kim and Kyle Richards, who are currently involved in a nasty feud on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Although the mother of Nicky and Paris Hilton has remained quiet in regard to her sister’s issues, Kyle recently revealed how Kathy Hilton has been handling the tension.
During a March 24 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Kyle spoke to host Andy Cohen explaining Kathy Hilton’s position.
“That is a very good question. You know, it’s difficult for [Kathy Hilton]. She’s in a complicated position because she’s not there when we’re filming. So then we go back and she hears my version, and then she hears Kim’s version, and then she has to kind of wait and see the show. So, I think she kind of feels stuck to be honest.”
As for her own relationship with Kathy Hilton, Kyle said, “Everything could be better.”
Although Kathy Hilton did not appear as a housewife on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, her name did come up on a recent episode of Season 5. As Kim and Kyle attempted to settle their differences in Palm Springs, Kim accused Kyle of swindling her out of their deceased mother’s home. Following their mother’s death, Kathy Hilton, Kim, and Kyle Richards were given ownership of the home in question, but after Kim allegedly was unable to pay for her part, Kyle bought her out. At the time, Kyle bought out Kathy Hilton, as well, although it was unclear why.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Kim later claimed she was not on board with the buyout, and accused Kyle of stealing the home. However, a source told Radar Online earlier this week that Kyle did nothing wrong.
“Kim absolutely wasn’t cheated out of any money from the sale of the house! After their mother died, both [Kathy Hilton] and Kim asked Kyle to buy them out, which she did. There was nothing to hide, and they got fair market value for their respective shares.”
Not only did the source claim Kyle did not steal the home from Kim, they also claimed Kyle had been financially supporting Kim for years “with absolutely no expectation of being paid back.”
“Kyle has gone above and beyond to help Kim out, in any way possible. Whether it be financial or emotional, she has always been there.”
