Paris Hilton Brief History

Paris Hilton had her moment in the spotlight. Some might even say it lasted longer than it should have. Love her or hate her, she knew how to draw attention and be seen.

Paris Hilton is the great-granddaughter to Conrad Hilton of the Hilton Hotel empire.

She was first seen in paparazzi as a socialite, showing up at parties or fancy restaurants with famous friends. It wasn’t until her show, The Simple Life with then best friend Nicole Richie that she became a household name.

There was also a stint where she was a singer for a little while. It didn’t last long, but she got noticed and somehow managed to get a hit or two out of the process.

She was constantly being seen with new pets and animals, but it was her beloved dog that was always by her side.

Then there was the sex tape, 1 Night in Paris. She was a treat for late-night talk shows and celebrity magazines because each of her outings was more fabulous than the rest.

After her rise to fame, her star started to dim. People were tired of the non-stop flash of her glitzy life. She’s no dummy, though, and used that fame to build an empire.

She created fragrances and has stores worldwide which sell accessories and skincare. She’s laughing all the way to the bank. Let alone her famous beach resort in the Philippines.

On the other hand, there were the stints where she was arrested for drunk driving and cocaine possession. Yeah, maybe she’s still the party girl after all.
