Nicky Hilton and Paris’ dad are both pitching their own TV shows.
As if Paris Hilton hadn’t already worn out her welcome, her entire family may soon have their own reality TV shows. First, Paris’ mom, Kathy, is hosting a show that trains girls how to be socialites. Paris’ dad, Rick, wants to “follow seven high rollers who each agree to kick $1 million in the kitty” and then compete in Las Vegas over seven days for the entire $7 million. And now Nicky, who declined to participate in The Simple Life, “is in talks to develop her own TV show,” according to the NYDN’s Gatecrasher. Lest you think that there are no Hiltons left to pitch their own reality TV shows, Paris and Nicky have two brothers: Barron Nicholas and Conrad Hughes Hilton.
