Kyle Richards’ niece, Paris Hilton, has just released a documentary called This Is Paris, in which she reveals details of her life she has not shared publicly until now. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Kyle shared a message of support for Paris, explaining how proud she is of her niece for not only opening up about her past, but for all she’s been through.
“Paris, I am so incredibly proud of you for being so open and vulnerable in This Is Paris. I am so happy people will finally see the real Paris. The kind, thoughtful, childlike, artsy, eccentric, intelligent, driven, not always happy Paris,” Kyle wrote. “This documentary is so eye opening for so many reasons. I have watched you be bullied in elementary school, high school, the media, social media…watching you talk about the abuse you endured at the hands of ‘trusted adults’ hurt beyond belief.”
“Thank you for opening people’s eyes to the abuse that some ‘troubled youth’ have been subject to, and for making people aware. You are one of the strongest people I know,” Kyle continued. “I love you.”
Paris commented on Kyle’s post, writing, “Love you so much,” with a heart eye emoji, to which Kyle replied, “Love you.” Paris’s sister, Nicky, and mother, Kathy, also shared some love in the comment section.
Kyle’s post also included the hashtag “Breaking Code Silence,” which has become a movement for people who have experienced abuse similar to what Paris allegedly endured during her time at Provo Canyon School in Utah as a teen. Paris spoke more about the hashtag and its now-viral movement on the September 15 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
“I just felt if I don’t say anything, then no one is, and I want to be a voice for the voiceless, and I want to shut these places down, and people can come forward and tell their story and put hashtag ‘breaking code silence,’ and we are starting a movement to make change,” Paris said in the clip, above. “Thank you for all of your support to everyone out there, I really appreciate it.”
