Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Kathy Hilton Joins Season 11 Cast
A source confirms to PEOPLE that the mother of Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton Rothschild will star in the Bravo franchise's upcoming season 11 alongside her sister Kyle Richards. (Their other sister, Kim Richards, previously appeared on RHOBH for five seasons.)
“I mean, I would be happy … I’ve had one sister on, why not have another sister on?” Kyle said. “My sister Kathy is actually — people don’t know this, but she’s one the funniest people there is. She’s a practical joker and she’s very, very funny. So I think she would be an amazing Housewife, actually.”
Speculation that Kathy might join the show emerged when she snapped a photo with Andy Cohen at a restaraunt last year. On WWHL at the time, Cohen clarified the situation, denying reports that he took her out to dinner to woo her for the show.
“The truth is, I went to Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills and Kathy was at the table next to us and we took a photo together,” he said.
“With that said, never say never,” Kyle chimed in.
“Never say never, exactly,” Cohen replied.
The new Housewife has been married to Rob Minkoff, who directed the original Lion King movie, for 13 years. The couple shares son Max, 8, and daughter Zoe, 5.
Teddi, 39, announced in September that after three seasons on the show, her contract had not been renewed. That same month, a rep for Denise, 49, confirmed to PEOPLE that she would be leaving RHOBH after two seasons.
A premiere date for season 11 of RHOBH has not yet been announced.
