Former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” personality Kathy Hilton addressed the criticism her daughter, Paris Hilton‘s son, Phoenix Barron, has received.

While speaking to Extra TV correspondent, RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp, at Kathy Hilton’s November 29 DIRECTV Celebrates Christmas event, the mother of four stated she was aware that some individuals have written negative comments regarding the appearance of the 10-month-old’s head on social media. She suggested, however, that many fans have also shared kind words about her grandson.

“There was a bit of that. But basically there are a lot of wonderful people out there too. And thank god, we have those people. And they really do make you feel good,” said the Bravo alum.

In addition, Kathy Hilton shared she does not shy away from looking at comments about her and her family on social media.

“I read them all. And the good outweighs the bad,” said the “Paris in Love” personality.

During the interview, Mellencamp told Kathy Hilton that her 2-year-old daughter, Dove, was diagnosed with lambdoid craniosynostosis, which affected her skull.

“I didn’t ever want people to speculate what was going on with Dove before a doctor told me what was going on with her,” said Mellencamp.

Kathy Hilton interjected that she had informed Paris Hilton about Dove’s lambdoid craniosynostosis.

“I told her about that,” said the mother of four.
