Kathy Hilton apologises to Mariska Hargitay over lipstick gaffe
Kathy Hilton has apologised for applying lipstick during Mariska Hargitay's speech at the 2022 People's Choice Awards.
Earlier this month, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star received backlash after a video began circulating online showing her touching up her make-up while the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress addressed the crowd.
Over the weekend, Kathy issued a statement to Extra in which she apologised to Mariska.
"I adore and I respect Mariska very much," the 63-year-old commented. "I already reached out to her, DMed her, I want to get her address, I feel terrible. I apologise, Mariska, I am really sorry... I look forward to talking to you."
In addition, Kathy insisted she had no idea she was being filmed.
"I was looking for a tissue, (but) I didn't have a tissue or a hanky, so I got nervous and just put some lipstick on," she explained. "It was during her speech so I thought the camera (would not) be focused on me."
Mariska has not yet commented on the incident.
