Paris Hilton is the niece of two of the stars of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle Richards and Kim Richards are the sisters of Kathy Hilton, Paris’ mother. Once Paris’ aunts were announced as part of the cast, fans went wild, wondering if they’d see Paris on the show. However, at the time, she was in contract with another network which wouldn’t let her appear.
Now, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producers are looking to have her come on during the franchise’s season three reunion special. Unfortunately, it looks like Paris won’t be making it — she’ll be out of the country during the time of filming.
“Paris was asked to be a part of the finale which will take place in mid-July,” a show insider told Radar Online. “She is a big fan of the show and totally supports her family appearing on it, but had to decline because she will be out of the country.”
Paris may be supportive, but her mom Kathy doesn’t feel the same. In fact, Kathy recently said that after what happened in the limo during the season 1 finale, she can’t even watch it anymore! She explained that she doesn’t like seeing her family getting torn apart for the cameras.
“Producers were hopeful Paris would be able to be a part of the finale, which they could have promoted and publicized. Paris definitely would have greatly bolstered the ratings for the finale, but, her schedule just couldn’t accommodate it. Paris’ aunts, Kim and Kyle also wanted her to be on the show, but they completely understand.”
Is Paris Hilton really needed? The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is one of Bravo’s most successful franchises. Plus, does Paris Hilton really command that much attention these days?
