"Beyond Tacky And Rude": Kathy Hilton Is Being Called Out For Applying Lipstick And Visibly Sighing During Mariska Hargitay's Emotional Acceptance Speech At The People's Choice Awards

    "How extraordinarily rude."

    Reality star and fashion designer Kathy Hilton is facing backlash over her "extraordinarily rude" behavior at last night's People's Choice Awards.

    Kathy had been on stage with the rest of the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to present the award for Drama TV Star of 2022 — which ended up going to Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order: SVU.

    As Mariska came up and began her speech, Kathy figured she'd touch up her makeup, removing a lipstick from her clutch and then reapplying it directly in front of the camera.

    She then let out a visible sigh as Mariska continued to talk through her speech.

    Viewers were outraged:

    How extraordinarily rude @KathyHilton. I cannot believe I (and every other viewer) just watched you apply lipstick, blot at it and SIGH in the middle of Mariska Hargitay’s @peopleschoice award acceptance speech. Doesn’t get any more self-absorbed than that. Shame on you.

    Donald Trump's buddy, #KathyHilton, keeps showing us who she is. Can't we just acknowledge that she's an entitled, mean-spirited, self-involved, shitty Trumper Republican jerk? C'mon, #RHOBH fans. Acknowledge who she is. https://t.co/LmM8ojvfPK
