After hosting an auction with her daughters Nicky and Paris Hilton for more than two hours on a ‘very hot’ day to raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, the socialite said felt like she was ‘roasting and roasting’ in her wool-lined plaid minidress.

‘The whole thing was literally sticking to me…and I didn’t have a chance to even have a Coca-Cola, water, a glass of wine or anything to eat because we were busy selling and selling and selling and raising money. We had a very successful auction,’ she said. 

Afterward Kathy and her pal Vera went to grab a dinner at Craig’s, but said the ‘air conditioning was up so high’ she ‘had to take’ her dress off.

‘She [Vera] brought in this table cloth — see, there’s makeup on here — because she took the table cloth…and she made it like it was a sarong,’ the mom-of-four told fans. 

Kathy then called herself ‘very resourceful’ and joked she either had to make a wardrobe change or had to have gone home because she could move in the garment at one point. 

‘What can I tell you? I didn’t have my fan with me,’ she quipped referencing the fan she packed during her girls trip to Lake Tahoe with the cast of the RHOBH last year.

She concluded: ‘I wanted to just let everybody know because everybody was up in arms wondering what happened.’ 

Previously, when asked by photographers outside the restaurant about wearing a tablecloth, her friends claimed she was in a ‘[John] Galliano’ dress.  

Both her girls commented on the post, with Paris writing,’That’s hot [fire emoji] You are too funny!’ 

‘You are very resourceful mom,’ gushed under the post.
