Report: RHOBH Housewives “Furious” after Kathy Hilton’s Salary Upgrade, as Castmates Are “Snooping” to Discover The Amount, Plus Source Reveals There May Be “Hell to Pay”

According to reports, Kathy Hilton refused to film with the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills until producers offered her a bigger paycheck.

Her chess move was reportedly successful, and now she’s back with the rest of her costars.

However, Life & Style reported that Sutton Stracke, Garcelle Beauvais, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, and Crystal Minkoff are not as pleased about Kathy’s good fortune.

A source told the outlet the following: “The reason for all the jealousy is that Kathy is still considered a ‘friend’ of the Housewives. She’s not an official regular. Not yet anyway.”

Although sister Kyle Richards didn’t voice any frustration, the other “housewives are furious and stirring up a fuss,” said the insider. “It caused a major salary snooping investigation in the 90210.”

The source continued, “Every other cast member wants to know what Kathy’s making this season, and if they find out that it’s more than what they’re taking home, there’s going to be hell to pay over at Bravo.”

Last season, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reportedly had higher ratings than any other show in the franchise (part of its success is owed to the public fascination with Erika’s legal saga).

However, another factor was the addition of Kathy. Her quirky humor was an endearing part of the show, and she added a levity that balanced out the drama.
