(NEW YORK) -- Kim Kardashian and her sisters may be popular reality stars, but Paris Hilton's mom, Kathy, claims they would be nothing if it wasn’t for her daughter. The New York Post reports Kathy Hilton was at a Manhattan bar Saturday night, and quotes a source at the bar as saying Mother Hilton was “going on about how Paris is the original reality star and all the others had her to thank for their success.”
When someone mentioned Kim Kardashian, who was once described as a stylist for Paris, Kathy Hilton dismissed her by saying, “Oh, she used to work for Paris.” The source claims Kathy Hilton said Kim Kardashian has “copied everything Paris has done."
The newspaper quotes a kinder, gentler Kathy Hilton on Monday as saying "I love Kim" before adding that Paris is “one of the pioneers” of the reality TV business.
