“Watch What Happens Live”  fans are reacting to an awkward segment with guest Kathy Hilton.

During the live show on August 10, 2022, host Andy Cohen played  a game called “Will Kathy Know Them?” During the game, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Crystal Kung-Minkoff had to guess if Hilton would recognize photos of famous celebrities. When a photo of superstar R&B singer Lizzo popped onscreen, Cohen asked Hilton if she knew who she was.

“I feel like I do,” Hilton said, before guessing, “Precious?”

Members of the studio audience began to awkwardly laugh, and then groan, at Hilton’s guess, with Cohen covering his face with his note cards. Minkoff attempted to save her co-star with, “She is precious, though. Lizzo is precious.”

“That’s what I call her! Her nickname is Precious, to me,” Hilton added.

The case of mistaken identity comes months after Hilton was hit with allegations that she made offensive comments during an RHOBH cast trip to Aspen, per ShowBiz CheatSheet.

Hilton’s problematic mixup had her not only confusing a music superstar for someone else, but also calling her by a movie character name. In 2009, actress Gabourey Sidibe was nominated for an Oscar for her role as the character Precious in the Lee Daniels film of the same name, per IMDb.
