Andy Cohen Confirmed There Is No Footage of the “Kathy Hilton Meltdown”

As it turns out, one of RHOBH Season 12’s most talked-about moments wasn’t caught on camera.

Kathy Hilton’s Aspen “meltdown” during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 12 sent shockwaves throughout the entire cast. If you want to know what really happened, though, you’ll have to decide whose word you want to take — just like the rest of the RHOBH ladies.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

During Andy Cohen’s BravoCon 2022 Ask Andy panel on Friday, October 14, an audience member broached the subject of Kathy and Lisa Rinna’s tension over what went down when the duo was alone in Aspen. According to the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host, there are no receipts to prove exactly who is telling the truth.

“I promise you, from me to you, we’re all here together… There is no footage of the Kathy Hilton meltdown,” Andy revealed during the discussion, which the Today show’s Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie moderated. “You know that I’m a shade assassin. I’m going to want to show it. If it was on a producer’s phone, we would show it, trust me.”

Of course, the women had the chance to hash things out at the RHOBH Season 12 reunion, which ultimately left Kathy’s caught-in-the-middle sister, Kyle Richards, in tears. After the taping, Kyle told E! News that “things are not great right now” between her and Kathy, though she continues to have “high hopes” for the future.

“I know that’s why I was so emotional at the reunion," she explained to the outlet. "For me, I don’t think people realize how much it affects my family and the relationships, and I have been holding that in for so long, and that’s why I felt so emotional.”
