Sutton Stracke set the record straight about a Kathy Hilton rumor on Instagram earlier this week.
As a report suggested Kathy was already gearing up for the upcoming 13th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after wrapping production on season 12 last month, Sutton took to her Instagram page, where she responded to a rumor claiming Kathy used a slur against her assistant.
“Did Kathy Hilton really use a slur when talking about your assistant?” a fan asked on March 23.
“No,” Sutton replied.
As Kathy continues to be accused of mistreating an employee amid the cast’s girls’ trip to Aspen earlier this year, insiders are claiming she’s preparing for a hostile takeover of RHOBH as she looks ahead to season 13.
“Kathy Hilton is no fool. She might come across as ditsy but behind the scenes, she knows exactly what she is doing and will not rest until she has full control of the franchise,” a source told Radar Online on March 23.
According to the report, Kathy plans to take over the series by enlisting a number of her close friends to join the show as allies.
“Currently Kathy is interviewing all her close friends and working with them to make sure they get cast on the show. Kathy knows exactly what the producers are looking for and as the mother who created Paris Hilton, she knows how to make someone into a star. Her plan is to pack the show with close friends who will be loyal to her,” the insider continued. “The show is a game of numbers. If you can control the most of cast members you will win. There has been no one in the history of the franchise who has referred more people to the casting people than Kathy Hilton.”
As RHOBH fans will recall, Kathy was accused of suffering a meltdown in Aspen amid a dispute with a staffer of the member’s only Caribou Club. As Radar Online previously revealed, Kathy allegedly got upset with the employee after she attempted to have them tell the DJ to play one of her late friend Michael Jackson‘s songs and made a comment about “white privilege.”
Although Kathy’s reps denied the report, Kathy allegedly skipped a number of cast events after the supposed drama played out, and ultimately, rumors claimed she had sent a cease and desist to co-star Lisa Rinna as a result of the potential incident, which Kathy also denied.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime this spring or summer.
