Nicky Hilton Rothschild gets second baby shower in New York: excessive?

A photo posted by Paris Hilton (@parishilton) on

I was just kidding about asking if two showers was excessive; excessive is kind of redundant when it comes to the Hilton sisters. 365 Style author, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, is having a baby girl next month, in case you didn’t know. She threw herself a lavish baby shower in LA at the Hotel Bel Air last month so naturally she had to have a matching shower on the East Coast. Big sister Paris took over the hosting duties at the Waldorf Astoria, where the theme was Trust Funds Are Fun! Attending the affair were grandma-to-be Kathy and grand-aunt-to-be Kyle Richards. Since she is such a *dear* friend of Kyle, Bethenny Frankel grabbed an invitation, and posted everything she could to Snapchat.

Nicky Hilton Rothschild will be welcoming her first child with husband James Rothschild pretty soon, so she’s getting ready by being honored at a second baby shower.

The mama-to-be, who is expecting a baby girl, celebrated her first baby shower at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, but this time she was honored at a swanky reception at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City Wednesday. Bethenny Frankel attended the affair and documented it on Snapchat.

In celebrating the soon-to-be arrival of Nicky’s little girl, the baby shower had a white cake with a pink rattle and pink hearts. It also had a baby duck on the top of it. In addition to the elaborate cake, guests enjoyed other delectable desserts and snacks.

Appearing in a couple of the Real Housewives of New York City star’s Snapchats, Nicky looked gorgeous in a lace white dress that made her appear angelic. Bethenny, on the other hand, looked lovely in a blue and peach color-blocked dress that she paired with white pumps.

“Goin’ somewhere girly,” she captioned a pic.

Of course, the SkinnyGirl founder’s presence at Nicky’s second baby shower also served as a bit of a reunion, as she once worked as Nicky’s nanny. “I’ve known Kyle [Richards] for years. I used to work for Kathy Hilton and take Paris [Hilton] and Nicky to school and so I knew them through Kyle who’s a friend of mine and she was coming into town so I got together with her in the Hamptons,” Bethenny previously told E! News exclusively.

Bethenny was Nicky’s nanny? I wonder if she wore Nicky’s pajamas back then too. I shouldn’t begrudge anyone for having a bunch of baby showers; babies are exciting. I shouldn’t begrudge them but I am going to because they were likely paid to host these sponsored events and I am jealous and petty. So maybe a third shower is on the way for those who couldn’t make it in from the Cape on time? Or, I don’t know – the English relations? Perhaps those ne’er-do-wells will just have to wait for the official Sip And See Party.

Something nice? I really liked both Nicky and Paris’ dresses.

    It’s a Hilton- Rothschild kid so everything will be excessive it’s entire life. Until the revolution… eat the rich! Lol

  2. Astrid says:

    I’m feeling mean and snippy too. They have more money than they can spend. Couldn’t some of the gifts/money be given to charities? How many pink designer dresses can one baby wear?

    • Melissa Melissa says:

      Does someone have an obligation to give to charity just because they want to have several baby showers? It’s her money or her husband’s, she’s allowed to do what ever she wants. It’s okay for people to live a full life, it’s possible to give to charity AND treat yourself nicely.

        Unless one is a Bernie Sanders supporter, in which case one apparently feels that other people’s money actually belongs to, well, other people.

      • hmmm says:

        This is treating oneself with excessive indulgence. In effect, it’s called gluttony.

    • Harryg says:

      Too many giant businesses – not all of them – got so massive because they do not pay their workers enough. Those businesses are PARASITES. Go Bernie!

    • Fee says:

      What do we expect when the theme is trust fund, please bitches. Work for a living, your treat grandfather built it be it passed to cocky kids.

  3. JustJen says:

    Paris looks respectable. Going to church!! The apocalypse is nigh!!

  4. Name says:

    Let them stimulate the economy with their money.
    Well hell I doubt their present were from Etsy though.

    Has anyone accused her of being illuminati yet? I always love those stories. Such fun with the photoshopped triangles all over random pictures trying to show connection between random objects in photos that are symbols and signs for eyes and crap haha so good.

    Bethenny worked as Nicki’s nanny?

  6. kay says:

    trust funds are fun….snort, lol.
    where do i get me one of those? ;p

    • susanne says:

      I’ve always said that I would make the best philanthropist. Really. I’ve got some great ideas and would work my ass off for no salary. ONly thing is not being independently wealthy.

  7. HH says:

    I haven’t seen Paris or Nicky in NYC in a while. Admittedly, I don’t keep up with them. It’s just LA and Ibiza fit their “new money” ways, so I just never picture them back on the East Coast. So crazy that they act this way. They’re HILTONS.

    • GingerNYC says:

      Nicky has an apartment downtown (SoHo I think) and is actually here a lot. It almost seems like this is her home base? But it’s weird because she’s hardly ever seen with her husband, so who knows…

      • HH says:

        Ooooh OK. Maybe I’m just assuming Paris represents the whole bunch. And that’s an interesting tidbit about her and her husband. I wonder if it’s just a case of two dynasties coming together with a mutual understanding?

  8. Sunsetsnow says:

    The name/theme for the shower is as tacky as Nicky and Paris. Even marrying a Rothschild won’t make them classy.

  9. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I don’t see anything wrong with having a baby shower on each coast if you have friends in both places. The part that bothers me is throwing yourself a baby shower. That’s just bad taste.

    • susanne says:

      I had a small shower for my first child, and while my mother hosted, I did much of the work. It was a typical family party. Men there, no silly games, delicious food. I don’t think I acted in a tacky fashion, though I get the idea.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        That was nice of you to help you mother. As long as she was hosting, that’s fine, and a family party. That’s different from this woman inviting dozens of people to give her gifts. Yours sounds more like a family celebration than a gift grab.

    • Chicken Salt says:

      Not sure why throwing your own shower would be bad taste. It’s a celebration of a wonderful life event! People throw their own birthday, graduation, marriage, etc celebrations all the time. What’s the difference?

  10. Coco says:

    I’m having three showers but we have huge family and social groups. One from my aunties that will be family and family friends. Another thrown from a close friend who is also my doula which will be all the girlfriends. And the third is a co-ed shower from another friend, different social group. Everyone is excited and I’m not going to say no to a day to celebrate! Trust Funds are Fun? Well, I guess we all live incredibly different lives from each other throughout the world and social circles, don’t we?

    • Amanda says:

      We had four between family strewn all over the US and a work shower too… I think two is fine!

  11. Patricia says:

    The very thought of being a woman Bethany’s age and feeling the need to post every little thing on snapchat is exhausting and depressing. She’s like an overgrown, underfed, undereducated 14 year old. So many of these celebrities act more like teenagers tha adults.
    We don’t need to see what you wore to a damn baby shower, woman!

  12. isabelle says:

    Everytime I see the name Rothschild, just think of the many, many conspiracy theories about the family. Some of them are awesome, like them being Lizard shaping shifting aliens to they completely control the world. My favorite family of conspiracy theory.

    • susanne says:

      must research, unless you want to be a pal and include links or stories….
      Bad case of the friday exhaustion/heat stroke here.

  13. Miss M says:

    I loved their dresses

  14. escondista says:

    you don’t throw yourself a baby shower, people ask to throw them for you. This is my first baby and different people are throwing me three showers. Gosh, it’s one of the fun things about being pregnant for most of us! You enjoy your cake and parties, Nicky!

    • Jane says:

      My friend threw her own shower, I didn’t see anything wrong with it. It may make sense if you don’t have one core group of friends who all know one another.

  15. Christin says:

    Pretty dresses, tacky theme. Don’t think their grandfather (or is it great-grandfather?) would be amused.
