Girl, BYE! Kathy Hilton Blames Her VISION For Confusing Lizzo For 'Precious' Star Gabourey Sidibe


After receiving tons of backlash for confusing Lizzo for Precious star GaboureySidibe, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star KathyHilton has issued an explanation and she’s blaming her vision for the snafu. More inside…

”Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star KathyHilton came under fire after her recent appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” with AndyCohen. Apparently, she called the Grammy winning singer“Precious,” either referring to the fictional character of the same name from the 2009 Oscar winning film Precious or the actress, GaboureySidibe, who portrayed her.

During a segment of “Will Kathy Know Them?,” the reality star had to identify celebs using only their photo. When Lizzo’s picture appeared on the screen, Kathy blurted out,“I feel like I do…Precious?”

”That’s Lizzo,” Andy responded before laughing.

”She is precious, though. Lizzo is precious,” said “RHOBH” star Crystal Kung Minkoff.

”That’s what I call her. Her nickname is precious to me,” Kathy continued.

Peep the clip below:

While she said that’s the nickname she chose to give Lizzo, she’s saying something totally different now.

After receiving tons of backlash online, Kathy hopped in the comments of Instagram account “Queens of Bravo” to defend her blunder.

“My vision is awful, the screen was so far away that I couldn’t even recognize Justin Timberlake or Melissa Etheridge,” the 63-year-old responded to fans, noting that Lizzo wasn’t the only Hollywood star she failed to recognize during the show.


Many Twitter users popped off on the reality star for confusing the two Black female entertainers, with users calling Kathy “racist.” Peep their reactions below:
