Kathy Hilton, Kim and Kyle Richards Unite for Holiday Party, Bringing Out Bravo Reality Stars


“My mother is the North Pole,” Nicky Hilton Rothschild said with a laugh of Kathy Hilton, who opened her Bel Air, Calif., home on Tuesday night for a holiday party.

“My mom has always been so, so over the top for the holidays, and I mean every holiday, from Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, Easter, obviously Christmas,” she said, wearing a bow-front cutout Rebecca Vallance minidress.

“It was always such a big part of our life, the celebrating, the decorations, the tablescapes,” she continued. “I was just laughing with my mom, because she’s a true, born entertainer. I walk around her house, she has, like, 20 Christmas trees.”

“She’s Mrs. Claus,” Kyle Richards said of Hilton. The two and their sister Kim Richards — all in Alice + Olivia — were together publicly for the first time in a long time. The ups and downs of their family dynamic has been documented on Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise, but now they were united.

“Stronger together,” Hilton said. “We always like to do something for the holidays together.”

“Kathy’s decorating for the holidays really gets you in the spirit,” Kyle said. “So, a perfect time to get together.”

Reminiscing about their traditions growing up, the sisters — talking all at once as siblings do — said their father was the cook in the family.

“He taught me,” Kim said. “We would cook, bake.”

“He always had an apron on in the kitchen,” Kyle added. “To me, when I see a man that cooks like that, I think that’s amazing.”

“James does that,” Hilton said of Nicky’s husband, James Rothschild.

“When I see a man do anything, I’m like ‘wow,’” Kim said. They all roared with laughter.

Every inch of the Hilton home was decked out in holiday decor for the celebration, a partnership with DirecTV. It was also a night for charity, featuring a toy drive; unwrapped gifts were left by the front door to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, a nonprofit supporting programs improving the well-being of children.

“The holidays are such a time to indulge, but I think it’s also so important to give back,” Nicky said.

Sipping on Champagne, guests — a who’s who of Bravo reality stars — made their way down to Hilton’s ballroom and backyard, which was turned into a winter wonderland, fake snow and all.

“I had a peek at the guest list earlier, and I was laughing,” Nicky added with a chuckle. “I think there’s going to be some very, very interesting people watching tonight.”

Among the bunch were Dixie D’Amelio and mom Heidi of Hulu’s “The D’Amelio Show” and Katie Maloney of Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules.”

“I love doing something festive and getting a little bit dressed up,” said Maloney, in a sheer, black Free People dress accessorized with a sparkling Betsey Johnson disco ball clutch. “It’s the best excuse to get out and celebrate on a Tuesday.”

Fans have been anticipating Something About Her, the sandwich shop she plans to open in West Hollywood with costar Ariana Madix.

“The sandwich shop is the never-ending project,” she explained. “It’s just been never-ending red tape. I can’t find the end of it…Obviously we’re grateful for the support, and we’re so happy that people are excited. And it’s going to be great when we do open. We are going to open, and it will be soon.”

Tuesday night, she was looking forward to seeing friends from “the Bravo family,” she said: “Ladies I don’t get to see all the time. And at Kathy’s.”

Looking around, she eyed a Champagne vending machine. “There’s a literal Moët [& Chandon] vending machine in here. That’s sick.”
