LOS ANGELES – Paris Hilton's mom has a new gig.
Kathy Hilton will play herself on the May 13 episode of the CBS soap opera "The Young and the Restless." She finds a magazine cover model for her friend Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman), but his wife Phyllis becomes infuriated when Jack allows Hilton to take over the photo shoot in the episode taped Wednesday.
Hilton starred in her own NBC reality show in 2005, "I Want to Be a Hilton," in which contestants competed for a chance to live like a socialite for a year.
She made headlines last May at daughter Paris' probation-violation hearing after she laughed in the courtroom when a city prosecutor argued that Paris deserved jail time.
