The insider added: "Kathy is so excited to join the ladies of ‘BH’. She just confirmed her contract as 'friend' of the show. She won't have a full-time role, but will be around a lot when it's involving Kyle and her family.”
Not only will viewers get to see Kathy's philanthropic work, but it's been suggested that Paris and Nicky may appear on ‘RHOBH’ to support their mom.
And Kathy’s sister Kyle also couldn’t be happier to have her older sibling on board.
The source told E! News: "Kyle is so excited she is joining. They have a close and unique bond. We'll see them both laughing and arguing this season.”
Kathy’s new role comes as both Teddi Mellencamp and Denise Richards recently chose to depart the reality series.
Denise said it was a "really tough decision" to leave the show after just two seasons, but ultimately felt it was “time to move on”.
She explained: "It was actually a really tough decision. I've been a fan of the show and had a lot of fun doing my first season. Obviously my second season was very challenging. You know, I went back and forth with it and at the end of the day, I decided it was time for me to move on and focus on other projects that I have. I'm glad that I did it though."
