Kathy Hilton had a meltdown while on the recent Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast trip to Aspen, Radar has exclusively learned – and while one eyewitness claims "white privilege" was brought up, the reality star denies uttering the phrase.
Sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell us that one night after Bravo cameras stopped rolling, Kathy and the cast continued partying at Caribou Club – a prestigious, members-only lounge that we're told Hilton has frequented over the years.
We're told she was jet-lagged and exhausted and just wanted to hear the DJ play one specific song – Michael Jackson's 1982 hit, Billie Jean – however, there was some sort of screen dividing the headphone-wearing man mixing the music from the rest of the crowd, so she asked a nearby Caribou employee to help her relay the message.
We're told said staffer was extremely rude to Kathy when she made her request, apparently asking her where she was from. When she answered him, he allegedly told her to "go back to L.A." The remark sent Kathy over the edge, and a heated exchange of words ensued.
One eyewitness claims Hilton shouted that they were looking at "white privilege" and needed to back off; however, her representatives emphatically deny she said anything of the sort or used any obscene language, as it's "not in her vocabulary."
Meanwhile, Bravo representatives tell us the story is "news" to them, given that it was not captured during filming.
We're told a distraught Kathy was then accompanied out of the venue by Lisa Rinna and that the two rode in a sprinter van back to where the group was staying.
The Caribou kerfuffle wasn't the only drama that unfolded in Colorado.
As Radar previously reported, Rinna is believed to have turned on her once-closest ally, Erika Jayne, whose marital, financial and legal woes have dominated the show since last season.
According to sources inside Felix Roasting Company, where the ladies (minus Erika) were recapping an alleged altercation from the night before, Lisa apparently made some comments about Jayne's alleged drinking habits.
The eyewitness claimed producers quickly jumped in and demanded that cameras stop rolling, allegedly due to the fact that Erika was not present to defend herself against such serious accusations.
