Watch What Happens Live fans are saying after an awkward segment with guest Kathy Hilton.
Will Kathy Know Them? During a live show on August 10, 2022, host Andy Cohen played a game about whether or not Hilton would recognize pictures of famous people. Cohen asked Hilton if she knew who she was.
Hilton said, before he guessing, I feel like I do. Precious?
Cohen covering his face with his note cards began to scold and groan, according to Hiltons guess. She is precious, though. Lizzo is precious.
I like her name! To me, it's Precious.
According to the ShowBiz cheatSheet, Hilton was accused of making inappropriate remarks during an RHOBH cast visit to Aspen.
Hilton's complicated plot resulted in her not only mistaking a music icon for another, but also naming her by a movie character name, according to IMDb. In 2009, actress Gabourey Sidibe was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Precious in the Lee Daniels film of the same name.
Fans Reacted to Kathy Hiltons Awkward Celeb Faux Pas
Queens of Bravo (@queensofbravo) has shared a post.
Hilton failed to recognize other stars in the Will Kathy Know Them? game, but all eyes were on her decision over Lizzo. Some called the 63-year-old socialite out of touch.
One commenter said she was unsure if she was trying to be funny, but that did not land. She was. She simply has no clue how ignorant she is. Another replied.
Others were outraged that Hilton used the name of a fictional character when attempting to identify Lizzo.
Because I know she doesnt know the actresss real name, I cant seem to find the humor in this. One viewer claims that Precious has been used to dehumanize Gabourey herself and other black women.
Kathy did not even mention the actress name who played Precious, only the character. It's so telling and gross, another agreed.
Cohen was attempting to make Hilton appear stupid in the game, according to others.
When one Instagram user asked, WHY WOULDN'T THEY CUT TO COMMERCIAL Following the awkward incident, another replied, Because this show is all about these kinds of funny moments. Andy Cohen knows exactly what he's doing.
Kathy was put up by two people, one of whom was also adamant.
Kathy's job is to guess people she doesn't know. It's been set up for her to f*** up. Andy is a shady character, according to another user on Reddit.
Kathy Hilton is awful! @Andy, you are wrong for that game! another wrote on Twitter.
Hilton responded to some of the social media posts to explain why she didn't recognize Lizzo.
My vision is terrible because the screen was so far away. If you remember, I couldnt even remember who Justin Timberlake or Melissa Etheridge was, she wrote on Instagram.
Andy Cohen hosted many games that put Hilton in the hot seat, and he cut off her story about Andy Warhol, her old friend.
Will Kathy Know Them? was the only WWHL game that put Hilton in the hot seat. Later in the program, she was forced to describe unnamed celebrities to Kung-Minkoff in an attempt to persuade her to guess who they were. Hilton described Madonna, Jamie Lee Curtis, Cher, Diana Ross, and Michelle Obama with no issues.
Cohen was forced to end Hilton's long-winded tale about her late pal, artist Andy Warhol later in the program.
Cohen said, "I'll get the rest of this story in a minute," before going into a Mazel of the Day story that mocked Donald Trump.
According to ScreenRant, Hilton appeared to be close friends with Trump. She attended the former president's Super Bowl party at his Palm Beach golf club earlier this year.
