Kathy Hilton, sister of Kim and Kyle Richards, has been an off-and-on feature of RHOBH for years, appearing as a guest in some seasons and most recently as a friend in season 12. Would she ever return to the series, either as a friend or guest again or maybe even as a full cast member like her sister, Kyle Richards, has been since the start of the series?
Kathy Hilton’s thoughts on returning to RHOBH
Although she acknowledged that she’s not actually in charge of casting for the show — that’s someone at Bravo TV’s job, Kathy Hilton had this to say when asked about whether or not she would be open to returning if she was invited back onto the series:
"Of course. You know, I had a really good time, I have to tell you. I had some of the best times. I’ve never been without Rick [Hilton]; it was an adventure."
Like any siblings, Kathy Hilton and Kyle Richards have had their ups and downs over the years and a big public down in their relationship came during the filming of season 12 when the two of them had a massive public falling out.
During the Aspen trip in season 12 of RHOBH, Kyle spoke about how difficult it can be to work things out once she and Kathy find themselves in a disagreement. In a confessional during an episode, Kyle said:
"Once Kathy is mad, it’s hard to turn that around. Listen, Kathy can be so much fun and funny. She can also be very difficult. The part that bothers me so much is how much I let it affect me. That’s where it’s different with friends versus sisters."
Luckily, the two of them managed to reconcile and get past their season 12 differences. Apparently, the two of them are so close again that Kathy Hilton got a tattoo with Kyle and her good friend Morgan Wade present.
Though there’s no official news yet on whether or not Kathy, mom of fellow reality TV star Paris Hilton, will appear on the series again, it’s promising that she said she would be open to making another appearance.
Hopefully it won’t happen at the cost of her relationship with her sister this time.
