She’s funnier than you might think.
How can you not love Paris Hilton? She does it all. Paris is a businesswoman, socialite, model, singer, actress, fashion designer, DJ, and media personality.
Paris Hilton’s almost always been famous (being great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton — founder of Hilton Hotels), but a time that really shot her into the limelight — whether or not she wanted the attention — was in 2003, when a private recording of her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon leaded.
The sex tape was later branded 1 Night in Paris, but instead of shying away from the spotlight, she used that newfound fame to help launch her reality television career with friend Nicole Richie by bringing “The Simple Life” series to FOX.

In 2005, Paris secured a role in the horror film House of Wax. A year later, she released her first album, Paris, and it reached number six on the Billboard 200. In 2008, Paris came back to reality television with her own show called “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF”, which was a competition show where she searched for her new best friend. Soon after, she came out with two more reality shows, “The World According to Paris” and “Hollywood Love Story”, both only airing for one season.
In 2012, Paris Hilton became a DJ at Brazil’s Pop Music Festival. From 2013 to 2017, Paris had a residency at the Amnesia Nightclub in Ibiza, and she was the highest-paid female DJ …
