No, it’s not a joke. Paris Hilton actually spoke about morals and values, and what she holds near and dear. I would advise you to take it with a grain of salt, but my own suspicions of Hilton’s moral compass come through loud an clear.
In case you don’t remember why she was famous in the first place– it’s okay, a lot of people don’t– it was a sex tape released in 2003, entitled “1 Night in Paris,” with Rick Salomon. Shortly thereafter, she starred alongside Nicole Richie in “The Simple Life,” which chronicled their experiences as wealthy, spoiled socialites slumming it along the average, blue collar civilian. It was during the experience that Paris revealed she didn’t know what a soup kitchen was.
Since then… well, she hasn’t come a long way, it seems. After the premiere of “The Bling Ring,” starring Emma Watson, and telling the tale of thieving youngsters, Hilton spoke about the pitfalls of being so materialistic… none of which she seems to have been able to avoid herself.
“There’s much more to life than all of these possessions and everything. And if you want those things, you’re gonna have to work yourself, just like I did.”
Yes, she owns 44 stores across the country, but work? She is the heiress to the Hilton Hotels. Heard of them? To put a number to it, she is valued at $100 million net worth.
The irony is that while “The Bling Ring” centers around a group of teens that rob celebrity homes– which happened to Hilton a few years back (she kept the key under her doormat…)– and her immediate reaction was:
“I don’t know what I’d do if I saw them. I’m not a confrontational person. But I would literally be like, ‘You guys need serious help. And I want my stuff back.'”
To put it in perspective, Hilton drives a pink Bentley with a diamond-encrusted dashboard, and a $300,000 California Spyder Ferrari. She also owns a $12,000 yellow Chagoury Couture dress, and over 200 pairs of designer shoes.
