The ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star was playing a game on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ to see if she would recognize any famous celebrities — she, ahem, didn’t.
Sometimes people live in bubbles and can kind of completely ignore some of the most famous faces in the world. Kathy Hilton is clearly one of those people after misidentifying Lizzo.
“I feel like I do,” she said when asked if she recognized Lizzo in a photo. “Precious?” With an uncomfortable smile on his face, Andy Cohen couldn’t even finish his response as he and fellow guest Crystal Kung Minkoff were reduced to laughter. Kathy looked confused.

One can only assume that she is referring to the titular character of Gabourey Sidibe from the 2009 film, as he would be the most famous individual identified by this singular word. Both women are plus size and black, but that’s where their physical similarities end.
“I don’t know her,” Kathy admitted. The two black men behind the bar for the episode, Greg Mathis Jr. and Elliott Cooper of “Mathis Family Matters,” were both laughing and giving very knowing looks that seemed to say cringe and yet funny and yet very cringe. teeth.
“She’s precious, though. Lizzo is precious,” Crystal said, trying to help Kathy save face.
“That’s what I call it,” Kathy said as she jumped into the lifeboat. “To me, his nickname is ‘Precious’.”

At this point, Andy was hiding behind his note cards and Twitter was lighting up with a myriad of replies.
There was some very minor speculation online that she may have been referring to model Precious Lee, who became the first black curve model to appear in Vogue. They just couldn’t decide if that was necessarily a better mistake to make. Again, the only things Lizzo and this real-life Precious have in common are being curvy and black.
There were equal parts recoiling from the awkwardness of making that particular mistake and outright laughing — which is pretty much the same reaction Kathy had in the room where it happened.
