Kathy Hilton Tries To Remain Positive While Nicky Hilton ‘In Hysterics’

Kathy Hilton, still reeling from her visit with Paris in prison, tries to remain optimistic about the outcome of her daughter's imprisonment. "It's tough. It is," said Kathy, who saw her daughter on Tuesday. "It's just one hour a week: 30 minutes on Sunday and 30 minutes on Tuesday. We talk through glass." Kathy and younger daughter Nicky Hilton spoke with People on Thursday after attending family friend Barbara Walters's ceremony to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "It's sad. It's like right out of the movies," told Nicky who Kathy said was "left in hysterics”. "The glass partition, the orange jumpsuit. Everything." "I hope this will shine a light on everybody (in those jails). That's the positive," said Kathy. The jails, she said, "need financial help, and it's very sad to see what's going on in there." Kathy added, "I always believe that where there's a negative there's a positive. And I feel that maybe this whole ordeal can shed light on other people, and that really maybe everybody should be treated exactly the same. I don't care who you are. As Paris said, she's just going to do her time and try to make the best of it, and hopefully" – she paused, chocking back emotion – "I always believe there's a reason for everything."
