  • Kyle Richards said her daughter kept her engagement hidden from Paris Hilton during her wedding.

  • Richards, Hilton's aunt, said her daughter Farrah kept her ring "turned around" during the event.

  • "We just decided to let Paris' time be her time," Richards said on the "This is Paris" podcast.

Kyle Richards said her daughter Farrah Aldjufrie kept her engagement a secret throughout Paris Hilton's three-day wedding in order to keep the spotlight on the bride.

In the first section of her guest-appearance on Tuesday's episode of the "This is Paris" podcast hosted by Hunter March, Richards said her daughter got engaged to her fiancé Alex Manos before Hilton's wedding in November, but kept the news a secret from the bride until the last night of the three-day extravaganza.

"She actually got engaged right before Paris' wedding but didn't want to say because it was Paris' big wedding, so she kept her ring turned around at the wedding because she was a bridesmaid and I had to keep it to myself — it was a lot!" Richards, who is the younger sister of Hilton's mother Kathy, told March.

In an email to Insider, Aldjufrie said she wanted the attention to be on Hilton because she knew she'd eventually enjoy and celebrate plenty at her own wedding.

"I was too excited not to wear my new engagement ring though," she wrote. "But I did turn it around at times and hid my hand in some photos when I remembered to."

"I ended up telling Paris on the last night of her wedding when had a little moment alone," Aldjufrie, 33, added. "She hugged me and got a little emotional, also saying that we're all grown up now. She was super excited for me and couldn't have been more supportive and loving."

In the podcast, Richards said Hilton was excited when she heard her daughters news, but that they'd decided before to "let Paris' time be her time."

Aldjufrie and Hilton's sister Nicky Hilton Rothschild were among Hilton's bridesmaids and wore pink dresses with lace detailing from New York-based label Alice & Olivia.

Richards, who has starred in all 11 seasons Bravo's "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," shares Aldjufrie with ex-husband Guraish Aldjufrie. She has three other daughters with her current husband Mauricio Umansky.

After the secret was out, Richards shared photos of the newly-engaged couple to her Instagram account on November 29. She captioned the post: "My baby @farrahbritt is getting married! We love Alex so much and couldn't be happier!! Congratulations Farrah & Alex."

Speaking to March, Richards said she's expecting her daughter to go for a more intimate style of wedding and won't follow Hilton's footsteps in planning a multi-day wedding.

"I know her, she's my daughter," she said. "She's not going to want it to be 1,000 people or anything ridiculous."

"We definitely will not be multiple days like that, that's for sure," Richards added.

Later in the episode, Hilton called in from her honeymoon vacation in Anguilla and shared some wedding advice for her cousin. "I was so stressed out too because you're having to speak to so many people," she said. "Definitely try to take it all in and just have everyone around you that you love."

When it comes to her own wedding plans, however, Aldjufrie said she's "already feeling the pressure of needing to start."

If she does soon, she hopes she and Hilton can be on the same timeline when it comes to having babies. "But if not, then hopefully they will at least still be close enough in age and can be raised like cousins. I hope that our kids will be as close as we were growing up," Aldjufrie said.

Representatives for Paris Hilton did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
