Is Kathy Hilton Still Married?

If there is one thing people know about the Hiltons, it is their lives are always a show of extreme extravagance.

When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills decided to include Kathy Hilton in its cast, many people were awed by her life. 

No one was prepared for what they saw within the family’s property since extreme wealth, extravagance, and charm were mixed. Many people wonder whether Kathy Hilton is still married.

Kathleen Elizabeth Hilton is a fashion designer, television personality, and socialite.

With a net worth estimated to be in hundreds of millions of dollars, Kathy is the wealthiest member of the show.

She is also the half-sister of a fellow member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle and Kim Richards. 

The income she gets from appearing in the show does not affect her bank balance, and she confessed that the only reason she joined the show was to spend more time with her half-siblings. 

The TV star has lived a good life longer than most people can remember. 

She was a child actress who was friends with pop star legend Michael Jackson while she was growing up.

She stopped acting when she met her husband, Richard Hilton.

The couple later got married, and since then, they have led to the birth of a fashion designer, a socialite, contributed to reality TV, created the Hilton chain of hotels, and made many headlines. 

She is Married to Richard Howard Hilton

Richard and Kathy got married in 1979, five years after quitting acting when she was 20 years old.

The star shared a picture of her beautiful wedding dress and flower crown on social media though the two do not always provide details about their wedding ceremony and marriage. 

Richard Howard Hilton is a businessman.

He is the chairman and co-founder of Hilton & Hayland, a company that deals in real estate brokerage.

The company is in Beverly Hills, California, and it sells homes, properties, and estates in various parts of the country. 

Since their marriage, the couple has been in the public domain since they transformed into news-catching mainstays.

Despite the pictures of them interacting with people like former President Donald Trump and Prince Edward, Richard does not appear on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The star also revealed that she was not intent on appearing as a main cast member.

She preferred to be seen as a friend to other cast members. 

They Have Four Children and Three Grandchildren

They are parents to fashion designer Nicky Hilton and socialite Paris Hilton. 

Other children include Conrad Hughes Hilton, born in 1994, and Barron Nicholas Hilton, born in 1989. 

They have three granddaughters from her child Nicky and husband, James Rothschild.

Their first grandchild, Lily Grace Victoria Rothschild, was born in 2016, while Teddy Marilyn Rothschild was born in 2017. Their third grandchild, Milou Alizee Hilton, whose parents are Barron Hilton and Tessa, was born in 2020. 

The family is one of the most known dynasties in the country. 

With their increasing wealth and family ties to others like Rothschild, there is an increased likelihood that the family will become an institution. 

Kathy Hilton was formerly Kathleen Avanzino, whose parents were described as ‘naughty.’

Her mother did not want her daughters to get married to bad boys; instead, she ensured that they understood they needed to get married into wealthy families.

They made her wish come true since it is reported that she once stated, “My daughters are married to men who have a total net worth of $13 billion.” 

If only she had lived to see one of her grandchildren get married to a Rothschild, a family that is linked to a vast amount of wealth.
