Kathy Hilton has been the breakout star this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Which is no small feat considering everything else that’s going on. But while we have been getting to know Kathy, her daughter Paris Hilton has long been in the spotlight. Paris is known for her partying and now Kathy is revealing how hard that was on her as a mother.
As reported by People, Kathy appeared on the SiriusXM podcast Lunch with Bruce and revealed what it was like. Said Kathy, “I was actually worried about Paris for a good while. She was sneaking out and she’d go missing and I wouldn’t be able to find her. Let’s put it this way — it got very out of control and I was scared for her. And my husband was very scared for her. And, you know, those nightclubs go on all night.”
She continued, “It was very scary. I mean, let’s just put it this way — there was times I did not sleep. How about for two days not knowing where your daughter is, and once hearing blood-curdling screaming, and then the phone hangs up. I mean, there’s a lot of stuff people don’t know. And I did get some flack. Well, trust me. I did what I had to do.”
Kathy also talked about how difficult things became with the press being involved in their lives.
Kathy admitted, “Everybody knew everything. Everybody knew where we were. I used to call the city desk at the New York Post. I would call the city desk and say at one in the morning, ‘Excuse me, hi, it’s Kathy Hilton. Uh, do you by any chance know Paris, where she is right now?’ Usually, they’d be able to track exactly. ‘She was seen at 11:47 [p.m.] or 12:43 [a.m.] at O Bar or this [spot].'” This is absolutely crazy to me. Imagine having to call the press to try and track down your kid.

Kathy concluded, “I mean, this is the way I lived. My husband [Rick Hilton] had to get up and work in the morning. So eventually he’d go to sleep. But I was up waiting all night.”
Being a parent to teenagers is hard, let alone ones that are in the spotlight. I’m sure Kathy is happy to be past those years. Maybe that’s what makes her so seemingly calm, cool and collected on RHOBH. Either way, it’s nice to hear Kathy open up about her life. I’m hoping she does more of it, maybe as a full time housewife next season.
