RHOBH, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is officially back with a new season, and Kathy Hilton is one of the stars. She has previously stated that she would not continue the show without a wage hike.
In Season 11, Paris Hilton’s mother made her RHOBH debut as Kyle Richards’ sister. Hilton reportedly refused to record sequences until she received a pay raise, according to a TMZ story. This enraged Richards and the rest of the cast, according to reports.
They were enraged by the idea that Hilton would be paid a huge sum even if she wasn’t in the main role. Richards was said to be enraged that the show’s socialite mother was given more prominence than the veteran housewife. One of the stories for the upcoming season is said to be the tension between the sisters.
According to Showbiz CheatSheet, the producers have given Hilton additional money, which she has accepted, allowing her to return to Season 12. The actual sum is unknown, although reports suggest it is in the millions of dollars. She’ll appear for fewer photos, but she’ll make a huge profit.
