Paris Hilton is the daughter of Kyle’s sister Kathy Hilton. About the scandal, her aunt said, “When your niece Paris’ tape was leaked, did you initially think it would ruin her career or help catapult her star power?”
Paris Hilton’s aunt also shared how they all were devastated that the s*x tape was everywhere on the internet. Kyle Richards said, “We were devastated. Like my whole (family), it was horrible.”
