During a Wednesday, January 5, appearance on Andy Cohen's Sirius XM show Andy Cohen Live,The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 62, opened up about how deeply the film — that chronicles Paris' traumatizing experiences at a Utah boarding school Provo Canyon — affected her.

“It put me in such a depression,” Kathy told the Bravo boss. “It was too much after watching just the clips and promos … ’cause you could imagine me just finding out [about the abuse]."

“I’m not one of those people, ‘Oh this is about me’ — it’s not about me. But yeah, it really was so devastating. … For her to keep that in for 20 years …”

The I Want To Be a Hilton star went on to explain that despite telling her daughter, 40, that she did not want to watch the film — Paris emphasized to her how important it was for her mother to understand what she went through.

“I said to her finally a few weeks ago, and then when I went to Washington with her, I said, ‘I’m just not ready to watch it.’ So when we got back, I did watch it, and we held hands," Kathy said.

The fan favorite housewife — who received backlash after the doc launched in September of 2020 — then further clarified why she sent the Simple Life star to the reform school in the first place: “A lot of people understood that [we were] trying to help our daughter. We were trying to save Paris. I’m not that strict … we were worried."

“She was living in New York. She was sneaking out and sometimes didn’t come back home for three days, not going to school. So we put her in this boarding school, in this one, in this one," Kathy explained. "Gotta keep her away from the city and all these predators and people that wanted her to model.”

Paris also detailed the effect the physical and emotional abuse she endured at the school had on her mental health in the tell-all Youtube doc. “I was having panic attacks and crying every single day,” she recalled in the film via Page Six. “I was just so miserable. I felt like a prisoner, and I hated life.”
