The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has a new friend for season 11. Actually, she's family!

Bravo in the US has confirmed Paris Hilton's mum Kathy Hilton will be joining the reality show as a 'Friend of the Housewives', meaning she will make recurring appearances throughout the season.

Hilton will be joining her sister, original Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards, on the show. Their sister Kim has also been a Beverly Hills Housewife in seasons past.

"She's not just a Friend Of — she's family! Please welcome @kathyhilton to #RHOBH," Bravo announced on Instagram.

Kathy has made guest appearances on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in the past, as her complicated relationship with younger sister Kyle has long been a source of drama on the show.

While all three siblings seem to be getting along these days, Kyle opened up to Andy Cohen about her strained relationship with her sisters at the RHOBH reunion a few years back.

Kyle's husband Mauricio Umansky left the Hilton family's real estate empire a decade ago to start his own agency, causing a wedge within the family.

Kathy and Kim later objected to their sister telling a "fictionalised" version of their childhood in the short-lived drama series American Woman, starring Alicia Silverstone as a version of the Richards sisters' mum.

The new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will also feature new full-time Housewife Crystal Kung Minkoff, an actress and food entrepreneur, to replace Denise Richards following her recent exit.

Returning Housewives next season will include Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Garcelle Beauvais, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley and 'Friend of the Housewives' Sutton Stracke.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is available to watch hayu and hayu on NOWTV in the UK, as well as Bravo in the US.
