She may be a fan favorite on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” but NYC-born Kathy Hilton has been holding court in her beloved Hamptons since 1978.

The matriarch of the Hilton clan — which includes husband Rick; kids Paris, Nicky, Barron and Conrad; and a trio of grandchildren who’ve dubbed her “Kiki” — adores lunches at La Parmigiana in Southampton, dinners at the Palm in East Hampton and walks on Jobs Lane in Bridgehampton.

“The Hamptons have always been a special place for me,” Hilton, 63, tells Alexa. “I love seeing the next generation enjoy it now. Family is my top priority.” But when you’re a Hilton (even one known for being authentic, irreverent and quirky by “RHOBH” devotees), looking and feeling good are also high on the list. Here are some of the OG socialite’s best-kept summer staples.
