Who knew Paris Hilton was such a trailblazer?
Seven years after the celebutante took over TV screens with her reality series "The Simple Life," her aunts are following suit, appearing on Bravo's upcoming "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
The network announced this week that Kathy Hilton's sisters, former child stars Kim and Kyle Richards, have joined the cast of their latest "Housewives" franchise, airing October 14.
Also among the Beverly Hills beauties: Kelsey Grammer's now ex-wife Camille, who fesses up to having four nannies for her two children; Adrienne Maloof, whose family owns the Sacramento Kings basketball team and Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas; Brit restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump, who also has a skin-care line and a column in Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine; and Taylor Armstrong, who is married to a venture capitalist and runs her own business firm.
But just like their infamous niece, it's the Richards women who will be making headlines, particularly feisty mother of four Kyle. She's seen in a preview going to battle with Grammer, losing her cool at a dinner party and lunging at big sis Kim in the back seat of a limo.
Guess drama runs in the family.
