Kathy Hilton Responds To Eden Sassoon Sticking Her Nose In Sister Kim Richards’ Recovery

Posted on Jan 17 2017 - 4:08pm by BeachSpin

Kathy Hilton is throwing in her two cents about the reality drama swirling around her sister, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills veteran, Kim Richards.

Kathy fired off a verbal bullet, in response to a tweeter pointing to the drama going down in tonight’s episode of the Bravo hit.

Fans have already seen previews of rookie part-timer, Eden Sassoon, butting her nose into Kim’s recovery biz — after Lisa Rinna brought up Kim’s off-season relapse during a cast dinner. The intrusion continues tonight, with Eden pushing her way further into the recycled drama, via a nosy confrontation with Kyle Richards, and a backbiting gossip session with Rinna.

Kathy Hilton sounded off in response — and her tweet says it all.

It appears that all is good with the Richards sisters, and Kathy isn’t afraid to call out certain storyline scroungers.

Check out “some of these women” on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — airing tonight at 9 pm ET, on Bravo.

  • wellWellwell

    LOL, I just posted on the other thread it would have to be Kathy who takes up for Kim because Kyle is afraid of Mogreasy’s backlash not to mention her own shadow…Ha!

    • Seriously. Kyle is such a wimp. It’s a shame how she lets people diss her sister and never say a word.

      • wellWellwell

        When Rinna became physical with grabbing Kim’s face and breaking glass, Kyle the coward runs out the door. Show or no show you go after my sister like that, I wouldn’t be the one running they would.
        Kim has become the punching bag on this show, whether she’s on or off a season, they still talk about her.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    About time Kathy demonstrates some solidarity for Kim. That pic above of (unintentional) condescending pity on Kathy’s face always crax me up.

  • chacha1

    Kim should also get a restraining order against Rinna who is nothing but a violent back stabbing bitch

    • Agreed. Rinna has a scary violent streak. She easily flies into a rage.

  • Sunflower

    Glad Kathy is taking a stand.
    Bravo is foul for exploiting Kim’s addiction issues three-fold for the umpteenth time in RHOBH History, by bringing on Eden. Of course Rinna’s job is to keep whispering in Eden’s ear about Kim.
    They are all a vindictive bunch, including Kyle.
    I have a feeling that Kyle’s to be filmed “Family Series/Movie”… is going to create a permanent rift amongst these sisters.

    • Ditto. Bravo is disgusting but these people do allow it for a check. But I agree with you.

      • Sunflower

        Kathy and her Hilton-husband certainly have an empire available to create a salaried position for Kim.
        Kim being around some vicious castmates on RHOBH is certainly not healthy.
        Addiction is a beast that needs to be conquered throughout a lifetime!

    • equinox2009

      I think having Kim back (she certainly needs the $) was very complicated, BRAVO needs her messiness and Kim needs the “work” to redeem herself. Kyle also had to be willing to continue to have Kim’s back/still/again and I guarantee Kyle did not want to be in the place anymore

      • Sunflower

        I understand that Kim needs a job.
        Now… we are talking about the Hilton Empire which employs approximately 5 to 10,000 employees globally.
        Give Kim a position in a Beverly Hills or L.A location within the Hilton Corporation (Anything Administrative or Creative) to keep her occupied.
        No hand-outs… earning a reasonable salary, including medical benefits and some perks.
        Kyle, Kim, Kathy and Bravo need to understand that Kim’s television days are bygones!
        Kim needs to stay off the Tube – Period!!!

          • Sunflower

            See… if Kim was our sister and we had the Hilton name, we certainly would employ her.
            Kim has not been on our screens for awhile and it is very hard to watch her comeback, immediately embroiled in a vicious fight with Rinna.
            Not cute…

          • the underground train

            No it isn’t. I get no satisfaction of watching her on this show. She can’t host her own event. She is that not funny or witty. Camille delivered more of the glamorous life in her brief appearance in the episode before last, than Kim has during her whole stint on RHOBH.

          • Sunflower

            Camille absolutely gave us a glimpse of her glamorous life. (Beverley Hills, Hawaii).
            I enjoyed her dancing as well…. Teehee..

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Employ her to do what though?!? Kim is probably barely capable of answering telephones. Is she going to be a custodian?!? LOL!!
            I doubt if she has any skills required to maintain a 9-5.

          • Sunflower

            We can’t all give up on Kim, especially now that she is a grandmother.
            Her journey to sobriety will be a continuous one beating the thoughts of addiction.
            If I had the Hilton money, I certainly would get her training, an administrative position in maybe the H.R or Operations Dept. in a hotel under the Hilton umbrella.
            She could work for Kyle in her boutique or get her R.E License; she is still young and the possibilities to work are endless, however, not on RHOBH.
            Kim looked pretty good in her Talking-Head.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Another great post, Sunflower 🌻
            What I do not like is when Kim is up, why does Rinna always try to knock her down?!?
            I can not tell if she is clean or not because she could have perminate brain damage from all her years of drinking & drugging. I am not giving up on her. I was just curious as to what job she could hold?!?
            The family probably feels the same so while she doesn’t work for them, she is on the payroll.

          • lloleary

            She wouldn’t show up anyway…..

    • Gibney13

      I think the show will be very good knowing they are the producers of Shameless. I also think it will be complete fiction. There is no way Kyle will allow them to make Big Kathy look like the violent, narcisstic drunk that she was who used her small children to finance her selfish endeavors. No. Way.

      • Sunflower

        I am just asking myself why Kyle is so hell-bent on digging so deep in her family’s life.
        Her mother definitely was not a “Judy Garland” – Lisa Minellis mother.
        I just wonder what Kathy thinks about it all!

        • Gibney13

          Because, IMO, Kyle is very invested, as are her sisters, in creating a mythical narrative of their upbringing. I think it was often ugly, violent and cruel largely due to the Hilton bio. I also think Eden knows way more about the family than she has let on. Kim was a nasty piece of work when, during the filming of that movie that Eden’s sister was in, Kim thought she was a star being cast in a movie with 2 rising stars- Downey Jr and Spader. I wouldn’t be surprised if Eden has some very deep emotions around Kim’s presence in her sister’s life as she became an addict.

          • Sunflower

            You described it best.
            Eden definitely seems to know a lot more about this family, especially Kim.
            What Eden should not do, however, is use this RHOBH platform to express her grievances about the passing of her sister.
            I truly hope that she had 30 years-plus to heal and not reopen the wounds brought on by her own sister’s addiction.
            This storyline is going to be a hard one…

          • SassyMcAsspants

            “Creating a mythical narrative” –perfect!

  • JustSayin

    Lol Kathy could be describing her own mother, if the stories in House of Hilton are to be believed (I believe ’em!)

    • Jennymckitty

      It sounds like Eden questions the Patron Saint of the Richard clan, Big Kathy. I think they consider it one of the seven deadly sins as is questioning Kim’s sobriety. Eden commits at least two of these tonight. I imagine she will face the wrath of Kathy.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Then Eden might change the subject and bring up Kathy’s drug addict
        violent Thug of A Son.

        • Twinkle Sprinkle

          Whaaat? Is that Barron? What’s his deal?

          • MidwestMiddie

            I’m think both of Kathy’s sons have had trouble with the police but the last one made headline news. He was arrested after taking a flight home from London. He took drugs while on the flight and caused all kinds of damage and commotion. Oh, he yelled that his daddy’s lawyers would help him get out of trouble because they always had and he told everyone he was better than them. HA! He was under House Arrest in the USA when his sister got married in England. The family is riddled with idiots.

          • The other one ran over a gas station attendant while boozed up. He didn’t even stop to check on the guy. Kathy should keep her mouth shut.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          And say what?!? They did lines together & then she blew him?!? LOL!!

      • Biscuit

        I don’t think Kyle and Kathy think of their mother as a saint, but rather a mother with a colorful past who made some mistakes in her life. Whatever we may think of Big Kathy, she was their mother and they loved her. Eden Sassoon overstepped her boundaries when asking personal questions of Kyle about their mother and then tried to blur the lines with her excuses for doing so.

    • I actually bought this book with some left over iTunes credits that I had and wow! That family is insane!

  • Evita Peron

    Why does “poor Kim” always get a pass for her bullshit behavior? Eden Sassoon doesn’t need Lisa Rinna to tell her anything….she can see what a train wreck Kim Richards is from a mile away. Kim isn’t being exploited by Bravo; she CRAVES attention even when it’s negative. Team Lisa all the way. Kim Richards is a phony pathetic (never really was) has been.

    • Gibney13

      Right?

    • Heather’sCovenOfRealWitches

      I’m not a Kim fan, but Kim’s sobriety is none of Rinna’s business. How about asking Rinna about her eating disorder? She would go ballistic.

    • debbie

      Camille came back to visit so why shouldn’t Kyle invite her sister Kim for game night?

  • Evil Queen

    Good for Kathy! Personally, I like to talk about the present,or the future. The past is called the past for a reason.
    Everyone has done things they are not proud of ( have a few!)
    But enough of beating this damn horse too death!

    • Why is this happening to us?

      Kim isn’t even on the show….why the hell do they need to drag her in? Ugh.

      • itsjustme

        Because LR needs a SL and diversion from people questioning HH’s substance abuse.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Exactly! Everyone needs to worry about their own business.

      • Evil Queen

        Thank u. They need too focus on themselves!
        Kim, like all of us, is flawed.
        😊

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I agree that they need to focus on themselves. Looks like Eden should tend to her own yard. Kim is flawed and it’s not cool that they are making it fodder for a reality show. She isn’t on the show anymore, so they should just leave her be.

    • Biscuit

      Agreed. Kim had two chances, more than any other housewife on that show, to get her act together. It is time to let it go and move on. Everyone acknowledged that Kim had some serious drug and alcohol issues and it was the reason she was fired from the show for a SECOND TIME. Let’s move on.

  • Why is this happening to us?

    I am sick of hearing about Kim (who isn’t even part of the show anymore). No one really cares about her or or issues- she needs to go get help off tv. Idk why Eden is in her business either- looks like someone’s thirsty as hell. Smh.

    Kathy looks so much younger than Kim in the pic above. Just goes to show you what drinking and drugging will do to your skin. Eden is another one- she’s 43 and she looks 53! She shouldn’t be lecturing anyone about their sobriety.

    • MidwestMiddie

      I think Bravo brought Eden onto the show to give viewers more background
      information on how long Kim has been a drug addict and alcoholic.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Maybe… I guess they wanted everyone to hear another side of the story besides Kim & Kyle’s version.
        I’m sure they brought her on because she was willing to confront Kim. They love a good shitstorm.

        • Trippinhhard

          Then they need to go back to the day of Disney, when she worked for Walt himself.. He was just like the army, my daddy said.. Uncle Sam takes you in clean and sober, but every drug known and unknown they will give you to kill on that front line.. Disney really fucked up a lot of kids lives, because their parents left them with Walt with no one to stand up for them.. Sex and drugs is what those kids went thru.. It’s disgusting and they were pass around like bread on the table..

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Wow. Talk about disgusting. And to think Disneyland is “the happiest place on earth.” Terrible what happened to those child stars. Smh.
            Sadly for Kim, she probably dealt with that at work and then when she was home, she had Big Kathy pimping her out and bringing her to coke parties at 12 years old. I don’t think anyone could come out of that lifestyle unscathed by drugs or alcohol. She’s lucky to be alive…

          • Trippinhhard

            Kim was the breadwinner in the family, between husbands of Big Kathy, she taught those girls how to give a proper BJ.. Can you fanthom your mother ..
            Tracing you how to give a damn mind blowing BJ .. oh hell to the no
            Disney is not what they portray.. Been knew that shit

          • Why is this happening to us?

            That’s disgusting. No wonder they are all screwed up. They didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell with a mother like that…

          • Trippinhhard

            IKR you must read the house of Hilton, it will give you great insights to Kim and Kyle.. They nearly let their father die like a dog.. it’s a good read and Big Kathy (mother) was a whorer and drunk..

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Omg…that’s terrible about their father.
            I’ll have to check it out one of these days. I’ve heard it’s some read. Who wrote the book? Was it someone from their family who wrote it?

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          I just don’t understand what they hope to accomplish with this SL.
          Is Eden trying to blame Kim for her sister being a junkie?!? For all we know, Eden’s sister could have turned Kim on to drugs. What we do know is that Eden, her deceased sister & her adopted brother have all been strung out. So she needs to look into her own upbringing & stop worrying about the Richards.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I don’t know either. I think she is blaming Kim in a way for her sister. It seems like she is projecting her own family’s issues on to the Richards’ family. We all know they had lots of issues, but like you said, Eden needs to worry about her own family and not about them. It sounds like she wants to be Kim’s “savior.”She needs to mind her business.

      • Maria

        But at this point who cares how long Kim has been addicted to anything. I don’t really care for the Richards sisters but what this must be doing to the kids (I know they are not kids anymore).

        • MidwestMiddie

          Agree ……….. Bravo must think Kim will bring in viewers. I doubt it.

    • Kathy’s had a facelift, at least but I see your point.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Lol…I should have known! Kim could use one next!

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    Poor Rinna … she was CRINGING watching her new ally friend grilling Kyle like a BBQ skewer. Not only did Eden suggest that alcoholism runs in the Richards family, but by using terms like “in the thick of it”, she flat said that Kim is NOT sober. Oh hell no, I would have tore this bish a new one. How dare she besmirch Kyle’s family like this! Obviously Kyle and Rinna go back a couple of decades, so I just have to believe that her loyalty is with her … hopefully she will put the kabosh on this thing with Eden immediately.

    • Maria

      Are you kidding? LR is going after Kim for embarrassing her. No way is she going to let go now. She’s out for blood.

      • Trippinhhard

        Thank you, but ask or say anything about HARRY.. Rhinna is an over Botox Bitch, who starves herself and built lineage teenage boy, with balls on her chest..

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          Balls on her chest? Hmmm … that mental image will be as hard to shake as her ramming Harry Hamlin with a strap-on.

          • HankyPanky

            Hahahaha

          • Trippinhhard

            That’s what most of those fake breast look like two balls on their chest..
            Umm maybe Harry on top and he ramming her but and pulling on the fake strap like it a real pecker.. Oh forgive from going to the gutter on this.. But he’s Bisexual as she knows it, it’s been talked about since is LA LAW show days..
            Oh my he was so looking, it doesn’t matter to me his sexual orientation because I’ve never wanted to trim no one but my ex.. I liked his them his character was sharp as a whip and cunning.. Oh how sexy was my George Michael? Too sexy for words, but I heard in the early 80’s on the Rhona Barret show, he said me and my matte have a relationship, the guy from Wham.
            I went to all his concert that one or two states away.. My sexy brother could sing his ass off and he would sing one song without music…awwww may he finally rest in peace..

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            It’s interesting to me that when George (was forced out of) came out of the closet, he assured the world that he wasn’t duping us; that all of his music and videos were in fact about women at the time (because he didn’t even know he was gay himself). I don’t recall him ever “admitting” that he and Andrew were lovers, but I always sensed they were. But regardless, he was taken way too soon and will be missed.

          • Trippinhhard

            He definitely said on the Rhona Barret show that came on a 1:00 or 2:00AM here in the states, that him and his mattee was in a relationship, when he was with Wham.. He could have been bisexual, but none of that matters to me because I was never trying to sleep with him, been backstage after the concerts.. I loved his music and the soul he put in it, his concerts were so beautiful and live with no backup tracks. It was just him and his band or orchestra at times, I’ve cried it sounded so good to me and touched my soul.. The icing on the cake, he was soooo good looking with his sexy moves. May he finally RIP
            His music will live on for decades to come, my nieces, nephews and grandkids know of him, because I listen to 98% old music.. It’s just a fact, that’s when singers sung,without VoiceOver,,backup tracks and etc.. Oh the good old music having me dancing alone in my house, there’s always used playing in my house..

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            When I lived in Nashville, TN (back in the day), I dated a producer on Music Rowe and I got to sit in on a 2am session involving editing and adding background sounds to this random (beautiful) song. Sometime later when Wham hit and Careless came out and I heard the now famous riff, I thought “where have I heard this?” and it suddenly became clear to me that the song I heard that night in the studio was Careless Whisper. While the details are pretty cloudy to me now, I’m still mesmerized today every time I hear the beginning riffs to Careless Whisper. Haven’t thought of this years (not even when GM died Christmas Day … thanks for the sweet memory Trippin .. the 80’s truly are a blur:-)!

          • Trippinhhard

            Wow what a good trip that was.. careless whisper was beautiful when he slowed the beats down.. Oh he sang other singers song and it sounds so good, one would never know he had an accent, until he spoke to you.. He took over Elton John song don’t let the sun go down, he out sang Smokey Robinson at the Apollo.. Music is in my DNA and I love music and I have it playing all the time.. So songs bring back so many emotions, it’s breathtaking… What a gift you were given, I met a lot of singers and even danced in several videos..
            But to hear the beats and riff before the song came out, is truly a gift..awwwww

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            Methinks people are confusing Harry’s role on Making Love with his real life … he doesn’t now and never has ‘beeped’ for me … and my gaydar is finely tuned! Hehheh

          • Trippinhhard

            I saw that movie, but those rumors have been around since LA LAW..
            I personally don’t care who he screws, but it touched a big ass nerve in Lisa
            so, I don’t care who he trims, it’s not me and he’s not my type.. He’s too short for me and I don’t like the metro sexual men today..

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      I personally would have cursed the both of them out because that whole discussion obviously stems from Rinna flapping her over inflated lips.
      Kyle is just not confrontational enough. Rinna just refuses to stop talking about Kim but goes ape shyt if anyone brings up her alcholic husband.
      Eden should focus on staying sober herself, so she is no one to talk. If anything, her vibe is just as sad as Kim’s.

  • Biscuit

    I am 100% behind Kyle and Kathy defending their sister on this intrusive inquiry from the resident loon, Eden Sassoon.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Kim was Eden’s deceased sister’s drug and drinking buddy so I don’t think she
      was out of line asking about Kim. Also, it isn’t as if Kim’s problems and crimes
      are not known by most everyone……even non-Bravo viewers. If Kathy and Kyle
      wanted Kim’s life protected, they would have kept her off of Reality TV.

      • Biscuit

        I see your point; however, Eden does not know Kim or Kyle personally. I felt her questions about their mother, Big Kathy, and whether or not she was an alcoholic, crass and inappropriate. Big Kathy’s life was an open book. Literally. Much has been written about her stage mother antics and her issues with alcohol. All Eden had to do was Google her and she would have a plethora of information, not not only about the mother, but Kim as well. It was a cheap shot and she did it because she felt she could.

      • Oh Snarky Me

        You know Middie, it’s not that Eden asked about Kim, it’s the aggressive way she did it. The lunch with Kyle was a set up and Rinna and Eden had obviously discussed what they were gong to say and do. Eden was agressive to the point of being bizarre. “Hey, how’s it going, nice to see you” “So was your mom a drunk?” It was really weird.

  • MidwestMiddie

    I have a question for Kyle. What did you say to your daughter when her Aunt Kim’s violent
    dog bit her? Did you blame your daughter like Kim did? Or is that something we can’t ask about.? Did your daughter, along with the other victims, sue Kim? Have any of Kim’s dog’s victims been paid or their medical bills paid by Kim. Is that why she needs this Bravo job?

    It seems that incident and Kim’s other nutty scenes and crimes are only important to Kyle when she chooses to use them, herself, for a martyr’s badge, like on Instagram or at the RHBH Reunion.

    • Trippinhhard

      Big Kathy was a drunk, read the house of Hilton… She picked up men in bars, but they had to have money..

      • Deb

        I just finished that book. It explains so much why Kathy, Kim & Kyle behave the way that they do.

        • Trippinhhard

          It’s really sad, I couldn’t believe how Big Kathy his screwed up those daughter and she pitted them against each other.l b

  • Trippinhhard

    My parents never drinker, smoked or did drugs.. 4 of 8 smoked and did drugs.. When my brother was running for the Senate decades ago, he bust out laughing because he said, my mother taught us to tell your own truth.. So he said I quote ” I smoked so much weed and was at Woodstock, enjoyed the hell out of it, got my ass beat for it, but I still did it”. He also said all of you that are my age or a few years younger was doing the same damn thing, so there it is.. He graduated college #2 and Law School #1.. I can remember my mother jumping up and knocking the shit out of them,for coming home Snelling of weed. I was taught speak your truth, because the only person that really matter, already knows., That way you can’t be blackmailed about jack shit.. oh ste had fear instilled in her and her rules..RIP If they had the same laws now, my mother would have bust the bottom out of the jail house. Also the jailhouse was full of teenagers and young adults.. It was rare to hear a person went to hail when I was growing up…

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    For Rinna to tell Eden that Kim is this close to death on camera was all kinds of wrong.
    Why doesn’t she talk about her own sister or Harry Hamlin?!? She needs to mind her own business & stop discussing KimR. She has gone way too far, too many times at this point.

    • Oh Snarky Me

      I’d like to see someone go after Rinna’s husband as hard as Rinna goes after Kim. All done from a place of love and light of course ;o)

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Yes. They should start asking about HH sobriety & turn the table on her. I bet she wouldn’t take it so lightly if she found out the other women were discussing her possibly having an eating disorder behind her back.

  • Robyn McLeod

    Kim starts a lot of arguments she inuendos then denies she said anything I saw what she said to Lisa in regards to husband Lisa had every right to go after her. When she sobered up she point blank denied everything. Besides whining and crying she is an alcholic and trying to stay sober, really over it same old thing.Kathy take the good with the bad Kim deserves everything she gets, being a Hilton does not give you lot a licence to behave badly. I feel sorry Kyle as she tries very hard to distance herself from this mess.Kim just go home and out of sight you really are an embarrassment

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    Eden was vile and vulgar. The way she spoke with Rinna. and the way she spoke with Kyle. Rinna is a troublemaker – she likes to talk and spread shit with the other ladies. WTF were they doing talking about Kim for so long in the clothes store.

    • bluebell

      ITA!

  • staceychris

    It’s all BS – if they don’t want Kim and her issues discussed then stay off the show. It really is that simple.
