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 takes over the photo shoot, infuriating magazine staffers, 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 by laughing when a city prosecutor argued that Paris deserved jail time.
