Born in New York, New York, this 80’s baby is an all American heiress who converted from a child model and grew up into a media personality. Paris Hilton managed to accomplish everything in Hollywood. From modeling to acting, fashion designing to music and now launching a full documentary of her life. Paris has a hustle that we must respect. In 2007 her grandfather, Barron Hilton surprised everyone when he pledged 97% of his estates to a charity organization founded by his father called The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
Her father’s pledge amounted up to a whopping 2007 $ 1.2 billion. Plus he yielded another $ 1.1 billion which his estate will pay to the foundation upon his death. The move significantly diminished the potential inheritance of his heirs including Paris Hilton. In 2009 MTV screened a new documentary for Miss Paris entitled ‘Paris, Not France.’ The documentary is about Paris’ ascension to fame.
“I think there are a lot of people that have misconceptions about me,” Paris told Access Hollywood “They assume I’m just a party girl and they don’t realize there’s a business behind it. I’ve created this over the past 10 years.”

Some of her most notable BBFs are Nichole Richie, Kim Kardashian and tabloids have summarized that she went to school with Lady Gaga.

But Paris didn’t stop there, she found a leading role in William Hein’s 2006 comedy film that went straight to DVD entitled ‘National Lampoon’s Pledge This’ and Erik MacArthur’s 2006 romantic comedy ‘Bottom’s Up’. In 2008 she blew up at the box office with Tom Putnam’s romantic comedy ‘The Hottie And The Nottie,’ and she played Amber Sweet in the Goth/Rock musical ‘Repo! The Generic Opera’ (Which also featured one of her songs in the soundtrack). Paris also has an impressive TV catalog acting.
In 2007 Hilton was going to record her second album (yet unnamed) with Producer Scott Scorch but told MTV later in an interview…”
In 2004 Paris Hilton founded her own record label she called ‘Heiress Records’ which Warner Bros distributed. Records and released a debut album entitled ‘Paris’ in 2006. The album reached # 6 on the Billboards 200 charts where it lasted for a week. However, the total album sales were very low even though the first single ‘Stars Are Blind’ was a top ten (10) hit in over seventeen (17) countries. In 2007 Hilton was going to record her second album (yet unnamed) with Producer Scott Scorch but told MTV later in an interview that she had changed her mind because she wanted to cut a dance record with Bob Sinclair.
Her debut album had been a mix of Pop, Dance, Rock, Hip Hop and Raga for the most part. In 2008 she released her first single entitled ‘My BBF’ at KIIS FM in LA and it became the theme song for her reality show ‘Paris Hilton’s My New BBF.’ She had since released a music video for the second single of her new album which is entitled ‘Paris For President,’ a song which she spun off John McCain’s attempt to smear Barack Obama when he compared Obama to the likes of her when they were running for president.
The documentary also seems to be centered around a notorious sex tape that Paris recorded in 2003 with her ex boyfriend, Rick Solomon which caused massive ruckus on the internet and tabloids.”
The documentary breakfronts Paris’ high points in her career until raunchy behaviors were caught on tape and posted on the internet. Reports alleged, party rumors with half-naked pictures of Paris, pissy drunk at wild celebrity parties as well as photos in which she unknowing sat with her legs open while wearing no underwear. She was arrested, charged and lost her drivers license for repeated drunk driving which ended on a 36 months probation.
After that, she was caught driving on suspended license more than twice which prosecutors saw as a violation of her probation. She was sentenced to a 45 day jail time that proved to be very rough for the pampered heiress. The documentary also seems to be centered around a notorious sex tape that Paris recorded in 2003 with her ex-boyfriend, Rick Solomon which caused a massive ruckus on the internet and tabloids.
When asked, “Was the sex tape a [pivotal] moment in changing your life?”
She responded, “It was definitely very painful,” Paris said “When you trust someone and love someone — for them to do that to you, it’s really hard… It’s something that bothers me every day.”
