In the explosive current season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kathy Hilton is the much-needed comedic relief. Especially as Erika Jayne’s mess of a life takes center stage. We love Kathy for her box fans. Her questions about Hunky Dory. Her complete ignorance of who Bernie Sanders is. She’s a welcome face to the cast of girls who spend as much time on their glam as they do hiding their secrets. And while Kyle Richards is the OG on RHOBH, Kathy has quite a history in the Real Housewives universe. Even though it’s just her first season as a friend-of.
Aside from being the fancy pants older sister to Kyle and Kim Richards, Kathy goes way back with some other OGs. She and Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel have a relationship, even though B seems to be giving her the cold shoulder these days. But that’s to be expected. RHONY funny girl Sonja Morgan says she goes “way back” with Kathy, because of course she does. And during a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, RHOBH alum Eileen Davidson shared a tidbit about Kathy’s dating history, before she became a Hilton.
Eileen and co-guest Camille Grammer were asked on WWHL their thoughts on Kathy’s addition to the cast. Both women praised her for her goofy antics and the balance she brings to the show. And then Eileen dropped the bomb — “And I just want to also say to embarrass my husband, I think he and Kathy went out one time back in the day.” Eileen’s been married to Vince Van Patten for 18 years plus, but he apparently had a romance in another lifetime with Kathy. What a world.

Andy Cohen was pretty shook by the revelation because Kathy is so iconic throughout celeb history. “I know all sorts of things,” Eileen teased. Girl, SPILL IT ALL. While Eileen hasn’t been on RHOBH for several seasons now, she had some iconic moments. And that also means she probably has some real dirt on some of her former co-stars. We know Camille isn’t shy about sharing on Twitter, so Eileen should follow her lead.
