Reality vet Paris Hilton has some sensible advice for her mom, on the eve of Kathy Hilton’s reality debut: ”Be very careful not to look in the camera. Always be camera-ready. And don’t trust the producers.” Kathy pointed out that one of the producers is Rick Hilton, her husband. (Then again, as Paris has learned, you have to be especially wary of guys named Rick doing the filming.) Another unspoken lesson: Don’t worry if your burger drips onto you because you can always hose yourself off. We’ll see if Mom takes to the camera as easily as her daughter when I Want to Be a Hilton premieres tonight on NBC.
