In light of recent events (sex tapes, jail stints, etc) that would make most ordinary people falter, Paris Hilton has managed to take the buzz and create a global brand, or shall we say empire?
The 26 year-old socialite has more to her financial portfolio that just the fact that she stands to inherit an estimated $300 million with her sister, Nicky Hilton, from the global hotel conglomerate Hilton Hotels Corporation, which was founded by her grandfather Conrad Hilton.
With David Beckham transplanting his soccer studliness to America, the US is becoming more and more interested in the sport. And to prepare for the pre-season tour here in the States, British soccer team Chelsea FC threw a party.
It was one heck of a bash, with celebrities including Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Tara Reid and Kristen Davis in attendance.
The legal spotlight never seems to leave Paris Hilton, but this time there will be no jail time. Paris’ cousin, Brooke Brinson, settled a three year old lawsuit in which Brinson and Paris were taken to court by crash victims Ivan Alvarez and Monica Delgado.
The case: Brinson reportedly caused a four lane car crash on an LA freeway while driving the socialite’s car. Alvarez and Delgado were involved in the crash with their child, claiming damages resulting from the accident.
Since her time in prison, Paris Hilton has vowed to keep things low key and cut back on her partying ways. What we didn’t realize is that without partying, Paris would have to find a way to kill some serious time. And it looks like she’s gone to Australian Surfing Champion Koby Abberton in hopes of taking up a new hobby.
You can’t have a beachfront house in Malibu and not know how to surf. That’s why Paris has invited Aberton and his girlfriend, model Tahyna Tozzi, to come hang out with her and teach her how to catch a wave.
As Paris Hilton assimilates back into the free world, she needs to be careful about how she comes off. During her recent visit to Larry King’s CNN talk show, the heiress made a few blunders for which she is receiving a lot of criticism.
First of all, she’s been working this whole “ I read the Bible” angle. But when King asked her which part of the Holy Book was her favorite, she didn’t have an inkling of an answer.
Most likely, Paris Hilton wants to put the whole prison ordeal behind her. But it looks like it won’t be fading into the distance as quickly as she’d like.
Yesterday, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department began investigating Paris’ treatment during her stay in the county jail. There is an internal probe seeking to answer some key questions regarding the heiress’ days behind bars.
Although her sister Paris went through an arguably grueling jail fiasco just recently, Nicky Hilton is growing increasingly less patient with her. Nicky is tired of Paris getting all kinds of media attention for being irresponsible, and she’s making efforts to avoid the Simple Life star.
A source close to the Hiltons told press, “Nicky’s fed up. She’s sort of lived in Paris’ shadow her whole life, but seeing Paris treated like a coddled baby just because she was sent to prison is too much.”
When you’re trying to turn your life around, everybody knows it’s about the look. The way you present yourself has a lot to say regarding what you’re about. And Paris Hilton has gone so far as to hire a crisis stylist to give her a new image.
The hotel heiress realizes the error of her ways in the past, and wants to lose her old image in hopes of creating a new, more mature one.
"There is so much more to life than that whole club scene" was a statement offered up by Paris Hilton just hours after her release from a 23 day jail stay. After a trip to Hawaii, some private acting lessons and a lot of shopping, that "so much more to life" has been accomplished - as Paris has made her return to the club scene.
The socialite was first spotted hitting up Les Deux for a girls' night out. According to People sources, the heiress "arrived at the Hollywood club a little before midnight Friday with a group including her sister Nicky and Erin Foster (daughter of music producer David Foster)."
