Kathleen Elizabeth Avanzino was born on March 13, 1959, to Kathleen Mary and Laurance K. Avanzino. Her paternal grandfather was of Italian descent, and Kathy also has Irish and Scottish ancestry. Hilton’s parents divorced and her mother married Kenneth Richards, who had already had three children from a previous marriage. Then her mother gave birth to Kathy’s half-sisters: actresses Kim and Kyle Richards. Hilton also has five half-brothers from her father’s remarriage. Kathy attended a private high school in Los Angeles where she became friends with Michael Jackson, and the two remained very good friends until his death in 2009.
Kathy’s career began as a child before she even met her future husband, heir to the Hilton Hotels, Richard Hilton. At the age of nine, she started working as an actress, appearing in TV shows like “Bewitched”, “The Rockford Files”, “Nanny and the Professor”, “Happy Days”, “Family Affair” and others. She also appeared in the films “The Dark” and “On the Air Live with Captain Midnight”. At 15, she met Richard Hilton, around the same time she “retired” from acting. The two married 5 years later in 1979. In the 80s and early 90s, Hilton owned her own new gift and vintage store called The Staircase on Sunset Plaza in Los Angeles.
Since her marriage to the Hilton family, Kathy has been involved in getting back to her business roots. In 2002, she began working as a host on home shopping network QVC, and 3 years later hosted the reality TV show I Want to Be Hilton on NBC. Two years later, she began selling skincare products on the competing home shopping network HSN. In 2008, she appeared in the TV series The Young and the Restless as herself. In 2011 she appeared in The World As to Paris. Hilton’s half-sisters Kim and Kyle Richards, both members of the Bravo reality series, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, in 2012, Kathy commented that she refuses to watch her sisters on the show because they are causing her to break up. And breaks down crying. Since 2012, she has designed the Kathy Hilton Collection of party dresses, which are sold in four hundred stores around the world, including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.
