Kathy Hilton: Joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?!

by at .  Updated at .

We thought the world had enough with the Hilton family when Paris rose to fame. But it looks like we might be getting more.

Since Kim Richards was fired from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and with Kyle Richards skating on thin ice, Bravo executives are mixing it up with hiring Kim and Kyle’s sister, Kathy Hilton.

“They’ve wanted to switch things up by trading the sisters for their much more famous sister,” an insider claims.

Kathy Hilton definitely fits the bill for the show.  She lives in a fabulous mansion in Bel Air with Rick Hilton, her real estate mogul husband.

With her insane amount of money and high-rolling lifestyle, Kathy is just what Bravo execs are looking for.

So far, according to the insider, Kathy has decided to keep her new role on RHOBH a secret from Kim and Kyle: “The one rub is they told Kathy not to say anything to them. So her sisters, like the rest of the cast, are in the dark about the new casting.”

According to the source, this has been in the works for a while.  In fact, the source claims that RHOBH executives have been trying to persuade Kathy to join the show  since the show's inception.

“Execs initially wanted Kathy for the show years ago, but she passed. And she ended up recommending her sisters who were clamoring to do it,” the source said.

Until now, Kathy didn’t show any interest.

She definitely has the look and the lifestyle for the show.  However, she seems to be a more loving sister than Kim or Kyle.  For instance, during Kim’s bombshell Dr. Phil interview Kathy coached and supported Kim, while Kyle refused to do anything.

Half of RHOBH's focuses on Kim and Kyle's drama. Will Kathy be able to keep up???
