Kathy had been on stage with the rest of the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to present the award for Drama TV Star of 2022 — which ended up going to Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order: SVU.

As Mariska came up and began her speech, Kathy figured she'd touch up her makeup, removing a lipstick from her clutch and then reapplying it directly in front of the camera.

She then let out a visible sigh as Mariska continued to talk through her speech.
