Kathy Hilton Net Worth Surprise You

Kathy Hilton Early Life

Kathleen Elizabeth Avanzino came into the world on March 13, 1959. Her parents are Kathleen Mary and Laurance K. Avanzino. Kathy’s grandfather on her father’s side was Italian, and she also has Irish and Scottish ancestry. Hilton’s parents split up, and her mother married Kenneth E. Richards, who already had three grown children from a previous marriage. The actresses Kim and Kyle Richards are Kathy’s half-sisters. Hilton has five half-brothers and sisters from her father’s second marriage. Kathy went to a private high school in Los Angeles, where she met Michael Jackson. They became best friends and stayed close until his death in 2009.

Kathy’s career started when she was a child, long before she met her future husband, Richard Hilton, heir to Hilton Hotels. At age 9, she started working as an actress, appearing on TV shows like “Bewitched,” “The Rockford Files,” “Nanny and the Professor,” “Happy Days,” “Family Affair,” and others. She also appeared in the movies “The Dark” and “On the Air Live with Captain Midnight.” She met Richard Hilton when she was 15, which was around the same time she “retired” from acting. Five years later, in 1979, they got married. In the 1980s and early 1990s, Paris Hilton ran her own store in Los Angeles called The Staircase on Sunset Plaza.
