“They’ve wanted to switch things up by trading the sisters for their much more famous sister,” a source close to the show told Radar Online. “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, “RHOBH 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,” but Kathy never had any interest in the reality show... until now.
Kathy currently lives in a Bel Air mansion with her real estate exec husband Rick, an heir to the Hilton Hotel fortune.
