The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Will Have A Surprising New Face Next Season

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is making some big changes. Not only have Teddi Mellencamp and Denise Richards left the show, but it's also getting some new faces like Crystal Kung Minkoff, who was just announced as part of the cast (per People).

Minkoff isn't the only new face joining RHOBH. Sources have told TMZ that Kathy Hilton, sister to former RHOBH star Kim Richards and current Real Housewife Kyle Richards, will be joining the cast for season 11. While Hilton will be on RHOBH, she is not slated to be a full-time cast member. Instead, she is set to appear in a "friend of" role.

As noted by Bravo's The Daily Dish, Hilton has already made cameos on the show, so she's not a total newcomer to RHOBH. In addition to her family link to the show, ET reported that Hilton is pals with Minkoff, RHOBH's newest Real Housewife.

Hilton is not only a reality star but has also acted in films and shows like Nanny and the Professor, Bewitched, No Deposit, No Return, Happy Days, The Rockford Files, On the Air Live with Captain Midnight, and Booked (per IMDb). 

Hilton is also a fashion designer and launched a dress line in 2012.

"She can buy something and not have to spend a million dollars to look good.
