The usually camera-shy and demure Hiltons are releasing another way to fatten their impressive bank accounts! Kathy Hilton, sister to Kyle Richards and Kim Richards is releasing a new dress line, the “Kathy Hilton Collection” which will probably be in your local T.J. Maxx or Ross in about five seconds.
What we truly care about is why Kathy didn’t join her sisters on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and according to her, the reason she is..she was busy, darling! In an interview with PR.com, Kathy says she was approached, but she had better things to do. “I was working on something else.,” she says.
We’re bringing you an all new photo post this week! Check out what your favorite reality TV stars have been up to all week long!

Well according to a new report today, Kim, who did a recent stint in rehab, is healthier than ever and ready for her comeback! Sources close to Kim tell Radar Online she has made great progress since leaving rehab in January. “Kim’s post-rehab transformation is awesome,” the source states. “Since she got out of rehab she’s stronger and spunkier.”
Even better for Kim, age 48, she has now cut off all times with former boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld, who some had described has being controlling. “Kim is single now, and she’s good being single,” the insider reveals. “She wants someone in her life who is going to be a positive influence, and so she’s going to stay single until she finds the right guy.”
And, while her family is reportedly begging her not to return to the RHOBH, the source reveals Kim would like to return to the show. “Kim wants to return for the next season. and while there are a lot of people around her telling her not to she really liked being on the show and being a Housewife.”
Here’s to hoping if Kim does return, she’s sober and healthy. On one hand, I would like to see her return, especially to redeem herself following last season, but then again there’s always that risk of what if she relapses during filming. As we reported yesterday, filming on the new RHOBH seasons typically start during spring.
First Kyle, age 42, explains why the viewers have yet to see Paris on the RHOBH. “Paris was doing a show at the time,” explains Kyle. “There was a contractual thing that they weren’t allowed to come on our show and vice versa. Which we thought it would work out, cause its Oxygen and it’s all underneath the same umbrella, but they didn’t allow it.”
Kyle also adds that she now has a “newfound respect” for Paris who she turned to for advice on how to deal with the backlash that comes from doing a reality show. “Once I got into [reality TV], I turned to her and said I’m really having a hard time with this. I don’t think I can do this anymore. She said this should be a fun time in your life, good or bad you can’t listen to all things people say to you,” states Kyle.
Kyle goes on to talk about the dramatic season two reunion and why she failed to come to her “friend” Lisa‘s defense. “People were also really upset that I didn’t come to Lisa’s defense with the Adriennesituation about the radar online comment but I was in a very bad position. Because I am friends with all of them and Mauricio and I are very good friends with Adrienne and Paul. That’s the number one thing,” explains Kyle. Me thinks fans were also upset because at times, Kyle also appeared to join in on the attack.
Kyle continues: “And number two, Adrienne was not making it up that she was told that. Even though it wasn’t true, they (radar online) owe everyone an apology because it caused that whole thing. What was I going to do? I cannot get involved in every fight. I got a lot of comments from people asking why didn’t I step in? And the next week when I defended Taylor, people said why didn’t you stay out of it, it’s none of your business. You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t in reality television. You can’t make everybody happy. I know who I am and that’s all that matters.”
And finally, Kyle describes being on a reality show as “very difficult.” She adds, “It is extremely bitter at times. It’s very difficult. If you would have told me it was difficult being on a reality show before I did this, I would think oh please, give me a break how hard could that be? But it is very difficult. People are judging you based on snippets of our lives and they’re not always privy to the back-story, which leads to certain things.” Even though they’re “snippets” they still tell a lot about who you are. Just sayin’ Kyle.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA FOR KIM TO RETURN TO THE SHOW? THOUGHTS ON KYLE’S INTERVIEW & EXPLANATION OF WHY SHE DIDN’T DEFEND LISA?
According to a press release by E!, the Sunday night premiere brought in a staggering 3.2 million total viewers, a 6% increase from the 3 million viewers who saw the first season premiere back in January 2011.
RadarOnline reports Kris watched in “utter horror, because it’s just not a true depiction about what was actually going on between Kim and Kris.” An insider close to the situation adds: “Kris did jokingly say that Kim ate too much wedding cake, but what viewers didn’t see was Kim nagging Kris about working.”
When it comes to Kris’ decision to leave Kim in NY at the end of the episode to go back to train in Minnesota, the insider states it wasn’t all Kris’ idea. “There was nothing he could do about the NBA lockout, he was working out, and getting ready for the upcoming season, and he is a free agent. It was actually Kim’s idea that Kris go back to Minnesota to train and give them some distance.”
The source also points out the obvious to Radar Online, which is that producers of the show set up situations with intentions to push Kris’ buttons. “Kris wasn’t getting any sleep at all with Mason’s playroom literally set up outside their bedroom door. It made no sense for Mason’s play area to be on the second floor of the suite Kim, Kris, Scott and Kourtney were staying in. Scott and Kourtney were staying downstairs, and Scott felt that the producers of the show were just trying to provoke him into reactions.”
Kris will reportedly be ‘relieved” once the show is over and his divorce is finalized.
In other news, the Kardashians grace the latest cover of Glamour magazine (more photos from their shoot below) and in a sneak peak of their interview — completed after Kim filed for divorce — Kim gives us her sob story of no longer believing in a fairytale.
“I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic,” first states Kim before going on to add: “It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”
Kimmie Kakes doesn’t end there going on to state that she now believes she needs to be a bit “more realistic” about “the fact that what I want isn’t possible.”
Kim expands in the interview with her sisters: “I don’t know. I always wanted what Mom and Dad had. And at first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three… and now I’m like, maybe I won’t have any. Maybe I’ll just be a good aunt.”
Khloe Kardashian, apparently still has functioning brain cells, and promptly reminds her big sis that “what Mom and Dad had” ended in divorce. Khloe states: “ But Mom and Dad got a divorce, and she met Bruce. And you were a child; you don’t know what Mom and Dad had. As an outsider looking in, it probably looked like paradise.”
Aww poor Kimmie Kakes. How long until she’s in her next fairytale relationship? Plus are we really suppose to believe she only married for love and not for, you know, $17 million and attention???
And when it comes to the high ratings of Sunday’s premiere, I can’t say I’m surprised as I predicted as much. Quite frankly everyone loves a train-wreck and nothing screams train-wreck like watching a marriage that only lasted 72 days fall apart on TV! However, I still strongly believe that the Kardashians are done. They’ll never be able to top this train-wreck and the public is still sick of them. The family is currently filming the next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and I strongly believe those ratings will take a hit.

About Taylor’s impending divorce, Kyle tells People,”She’s going to pull through. She’s a beautiful girl, she’s a smart girl; she’ll get through it.” Kyle has been trying to take her cast mate’s mind off of the currents situation with fun distractions like a recent beach day for the pals and their daughters. Commenting on Taylor and Russell’s five-year-old daughter Kennedy, Kyle continues,”Kennedy’s doing well. She’s doing great. She’s kind of oblivious to what’s going on.”
As for the long-term, Kyle believes that her friend will make it through this a stronger person. And as for Kyle, she’s just doing what any good girlfriend would do. She says, “I’ve seen her a lot lately. I love Taylor, and I know she’s going through a hard time right now. I’m just being there as a friend.”
Kyle is about to get a lot busier as well. RadarOnline reports she is returning to her acting roots, and I for one, was a HUGE fan of her in Disney’s frightening (well frightening for Disney) Watcher in the Woods. Kyle will be starring in an upcoming Lifetime movie entitled Deadly Sibling Rivalry. Should her sister Kim Richards (the bigger of the two as far as child stars go…need I remind you of the awesomeness of the Witch Mountain movies?) watch her back? “Don’t think too much into the title,” jokes Kyle.
Also on the horizon for Kyle is a handbag line and a book, a la niece Paris Hilton. However, nearest and dearest to Kyle’s heart is the housewives franchise. She is very excited about the upcoming season, despite ending on a sour note with some of her cast mates. Kyle admits, “The reunion was absolutely torture: It’s absolutely torture because you see things that the girls are saying that you never knew they said about you, and all of a sudden you’re like, ‘Wait a minute! I thought that we were friends? I thought we were OK?’” Nevertheless, it’s her favorite business venture.
And just because it’s too cute/strange not to mention, Kyle’s precious toddler Portia, with hottie husband Mauricio Umansky, is the newest member of the Twitterverse. You can follow Kyle’s youngest daughter as she spouts sweet sentiments such as “Dear God, I love u in the morning like a diamond ring.” A collective “awww” please!
