Kathy Hilton has decided to come back for another season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but we're told she didn't get everything she demanded during negotiations.

As we previously reported, Paris and Nicky's mother was holding out for months before agreeing to film season 12. Kathy - who was the breakout star of season 11 — felt like Bravo should cough up extra cash if they wanted more television gold.

Sources claimed Kathy demanded a $2 million payday and even felt that was being generous with the network. However, an insider claims while the socialite is already filming with the other ladies, she did not get the millions she was asking for.

Reporter Anthony Dominic revealed the news on Twitter writing, "Sources tell me Kathy didn’t get $2M for #RHOBH. She got a lot less. She didn’t even film for a while and most likely won’t be a Housewife, but a friend of like last season."

In early November, the reports that Kathy was not filming started to leak out from production. She refused to show up to any event without a contract being in place. She was never demanding to be a full-time cast member but was always planning to continue on as a "friend" of the other cast members. Kathy's sister Kyle Richards attempted to excuse her being MIA on planning Paris' wedding but that turned out to be a white lie.

A month later, Kathy had signed on the dotted line after RHOBH had been shooting for weeks. We're told she will not be featured on all the episodes due to her being absent for a large portion of the production. The show rushed into season 12 after season 11's reunion in hopes they will be able to catch the remainder of Erika Jayne's scandal unfold.

Earlier today, Bravo announced they are not only bringing Kathy back but Will Smith's ex-wife Sheree Zampino will also be joining as a "friend" of the cast. The newest full-time member is a businesswoman named Sanela Diana Jenkins, who is friends with Lisa Rinna.

Erika, Lisa, Kyle will be returning with Dorit Kemsley, Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff.
