As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the two-time Academy Award-winning actress passed away early Wednesday morning of congestive heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after being hospitalized for six weeks.

In 1950, the then-18-year-old budding actress wed the first of seven husbands, hotel heir Conrad “Nicky” Hilton — the grandfather of Kathy’s husband, Rick.

The stunning bride wore a $1,500 satin wedding gown to her Beverly Hills nuptials which was given to her as a gift by MGM studios.

“In several charity events I did she was the first to make a donation,” remembered Kathy, who will be starring next in daughter Paris’ reality show on the Oxygen Network.
