S2 EP13: Famously "Unfamous" In Beverly Hills, Featuring Tina Hillstrom, Self Proclaimed B List Actress, Artist, Entrepreneur, Fascinating Friend
They say it’s who you know, and this episode’s guest knows EVERYONE. After having an unexpected pregnancy and giving her first child up for adoption at the young age of 15, Tina HIllstrom never felt complete. After years of writing to the adoption agency, Tina and her daughter finally reconnected when her daughter turned 23. It was as if Tina could finally breathe, and set her on a path of a truly amazing second act. After moving to Beverly Hills with her husband, Tina became a constant fixture at the Wilshire Hotel, Rodeo Drive and every fabulous Hollywood gathering. A self-proclaimed artist, B list actress, clothing designer and movie producer, Tina’s friends began to joke about her being the most famous person in Hollywood that wasn’t really famous for anything tangible. While Tina turned down the chance to be one of the original cast members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she was the one who help producers discover Lisa Vanderpump, and did appear on numerous Real Housewives of New York episodes with her dear friend Sonja Morgan. Tina is a kind soul with a deep story, as well as a feisty, funny and stereotypical L.A. socialite with adventures that most can only read about in US Weekly. Get ready for a heartwarming start and a fantastically fun ending.
