Kathy Hilton: "I Love to Eat on a Tray"

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kathy Hilton is full of surprises. Whether she’s revealing surprising facts about her past (see: her history with dental work), sleeping with a fan on, or serving a single baked potato for lunch, the Beverly Hills mom keeps us on our toes. And on Valentine’s Day, she surprised us yet again: Kathy marked the day by offering a rare glimpse inside her marriage to Rick Hilton

Typically, the philanthropist keeps the details of her marriage under wraps. But on the day of love, she couldn’t help but give her main squeeze a little public affection. In a February 14 Instagram post, the queen of holiday decor shared a photo of her and Rick sharing a kiss, looking very much in love. (And, might we add, very chic. Kathy’s polka-dot dress and Rick’s double-breasted jacket are both hunky-dory.) 

The photo shows Paris Hilton’s parents standing in front of a modern piece of art and a dessert buffet. A pie and a berry-studded cake are in the background, but the couple’s lovestruck glow is the sweetest thing of all. In her caption, Kathy wrote, “My forever Valentine, luckiest woman in the world.” She underscored her point with five pink heart emojis. 

In the past, Kathy has opened up about the kind of gifts she and Rick give each other. On the RHOBH Season 11 reunion, she said, “For our big anniversary, you’re not gonna believe what I got. It was a sterling silver shell. But [Rick] collects shells. It was for him.”

As for Kathy’s gift to Rick? “A sweater,” she shared. “I buy him a sweater for Christmas and his anniversary, always.” That means Rick has a pretty sizable sweater collection, since he and Kathy have been married since 1979. (We’ll save you from doing the math: Kathy and Rick have been sharing Valentine’s Day smooches as a married couple for 44 years!) 

Their marriage may be decades strong, but Rick and Kathy also have a new love in their lives. In January, Kathy shared a big announcement about her daughter. Paris’ first child, a baby boy, had arrived. “So proud of my daughter,” the overjoyed grandma wrote in her Instagram Stories. 

That’s not all the baby love in the family. Paris’ sister, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, gave birth to her third child last July. At the time, Kathy celebrated on Instagram by filling her daughter’s feed with blue hearts and angel emojis.
